Syberia, video problems

I am loving "Syberia". I am currently in Barrockstadt and need to attend Professor Pons' lecture.

However things are starting to get very buggy and impossible to play, video-wise. Cat'r said perhaps I need updated video drivers; so when he gets home or tomorrow, he'll help me with that.

I just picked up Syberia as well, although I'm only at the very beginning of the game. So far, I am loving it! I can't believe I've never heard about this game until last week.

Cat'r pointed me to a hint page that is hints, as you need them, not a walkthrough, not spoilers. It's helping me a lot, as I am not always good at puzzly things:

Beautiful game, isn't it?! Cat'r recommended it to me, as we both just finished reading John Varley's "Mammoth"; and Syberia has to do with mammoths too. :-)

Heh, I'm just now getting into the Mammoth stuff (only at the part where Kate finds Anna's diary about Hans' accident, if that gives you any idea of where I'm at).

And it's amazingly beautiful. And, surprisingly, it has quite the epic feeling about it. Just the opening movie, with the automaton funeral procession, was enough to have me hooked on the game. :)

I love it! Yes, I know exactly where you are--in the attic. :-)

You can look at the cut scenes over again, but fortunately only the ones you have seen so far. :-)

I am really jonesin' for the game, but I can't play until Cat'r gets my video problems fixed. Oh well, there's always Animal Crossing and knitting and crocheting. :-P

Actually, have you downloaded the patch yet? I was having a problem with some of the textures getting corrupted, and occasional speedup's in the game... the patch fixed just about everything. Might be worth a shot if you haven't done it. :)

Where is it? I was having trouble with, well, really screwy graphics after one section of the game.

I got it from Fileshack. They have it tagged as the German patch, but it's actually an international one. :)

Oh, Cat'r told me to go to the Syberia site, so I got it there. Everything works fine now, although I did have the game crash me out to the desktop once when I went back over to that one area that started the whole buggy thing in the first place. No problems since then. :-)
