After reading all the feedback, this looks like a really good game. I love HOGs. Downloads and installs fine. No errors. Checked the folder and all seems O.K.
BUT still won't run the game. All I get is the 'engine' icon on the taskbar. Please help, before time runs out.

Hi!

I believe this was given away before and opened to place where I left off.
Its a good mystery hog with good graphics. Its run of the mill, as far as
following one clue and putting items together with little puzzles in between.
thanks for another good game and have a good week! Lee

Stephen, I am sure I speak for many when I say you are missed here today! I hope you are well and that you are not here because you are off having fun somewhere.

That said...

I've played another in this series, "Ashley Clark: The Secrets of the Ancient Temple", and recall enjoying it so going to try this one out if I can. I have tried 3 times so far but it is a big download and, as I am using a hotspot which seems slow today, it has failed each time. I will try again later.

If you want to see more about that game and game play, in addition to the link to BigFish above, if you search YT you will find plenty of walkthroughs.

Thank you all!

Robert Blankenship,
Sounds like you lost your internet connection during installation.

Wanderer, I've been using Giveaway for a few years, this just started about 4 weeks ago

Robert Blankenship,
I just installed this one, it's fine.
This site moderator might be able to help you better.
From my point of view, I would think internet is cut off your machine, or, just off this particular software (by a new firewall maybe, anti virus or something like that).
Hope you'll get this resolved soon.

Getting a 404 message every time I try to download this.
"Oooops!

Sorry, the page you're looking for isn't here.
Maybe you've clicked on an obsolete link or mistyped the URL, or maybe it's just us.

Don't fret!
Just go to our home page and proceed from there."

I've tried on Chrome and Firefox.

Ros,
That occasionally happens to me here. If you have a VPN, turn it on and then try, that always works for me.

Reply   |   Comment by jboy  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

jboy,
I don't have a VPN, but have managed to fix the problem in a similar way. I'm currently on holiday in Greece and I tried 3 different devices, but none of them worked. However, when I tethered to my phone using my UK Mobile data connection, I had no problem.
So it seems GAOTD is probably blocking Greek internet connections. It's just annoying that I've had to use almost all of my data allowance for this month!

Hi Delenn, I'm not very well at the moment, so haven't been around all weekend. Just to say thanks for posting the link to the last time this was given away. I noted that I spelled summary (Summery) wrongly in the short comment I posted. don't know how that got past proofreading, lol. Take care. W.R. XXX

Have missed seeing many HOG/puzzle games here this year (last one was fun!) so at first was glad to see one today, til I remembered this was already given away here quite recently. After years, I don't mind a repeat since I often don't remember all the solutions, but this one seems to have been recent enough for me to recall "hints". And now that I'm playing, I also remember that although most of it was doable for me the first time, there is no written walkthrough; at least there is a YouTube series, which is a PITA but better than nothing. Overall, I remember thinking this was a solid C+ the first time, and will definitely continue playing again this week (my life is too boring), but I do miss getting fresh offerings from here in this genre, which seem to be quite rare lately.

Yep. It's a repeat from March 2017. Back when people were complaining about getting too many HOGs.

Reply   |   Comment by Jerry  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Jerry, I do know that not everyone loves these HOG/puzzle games as I do :). I just missed seeing them lately, and so when the offer is one that was offered only a year ago, it's kinda a bummer. I'm always grateful for the free games here, so not really complaining, just making the point that I wish we had more fresh ones of this genre. Or at least more than a year since a repeat---at my age, if it were offered a few years ago, I'd probably see it as fresh :).

Sorry - I won´t deactivate my internet-security (antivirus) so - as long as this will happen, I´m not interested.

Reply   |   Comment by Customer  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-12)

Customer, Oh for crying out loud. It's only for about 5 minutes or so. I do it all the time. When finished, I reactivate my Bitdefender. Not once has the Russians, virus writers, porn senders, Nigerian Princes, or invaders from the galaxy Andromeda, bothered me or my computer.

Reply   |   Comment by Robert  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Customer,
Just FYI, I have been downloading from this site for years and there has never been a virus. Because of the wrapper they use, pausing most antivirus software is required. If you are unwilling to do that, or switch to a different antivirus, there is no reason to even check this site as it is necessary for any installation from here.

I do scan the downloaded folder prior to disabling antivirus just as a precaution. FWIW, SecureAPlus and IObit Malware Fighter are two that do not require pausing. Avast and Zemana Antilogger do require it. I cannot explain why the difference.

Reply   |   Comment by jboy  –  3 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Customer,

It's the brand of AV software you're using -- if you don't want to turn off your AV software, or bother with installing in Safe Mode, change the AV software to a brand that allows GOTD offers. I normally don't have a problem with BitDefender, or McAfee, or Microsoft's AV, and for the year I used it, I didn't have a problem with Kaspersky's free version. And each of those 4 is usually well ranked at av-test[.]org .

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Ashley Clark: Secret of the Ruby to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try whitelisting the setup.gcd file. In the almost 11 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.
