For those with 3D acceleration problems; you can find a fix in the FAQ's thread (see end of review for link) i.e. right click on the games shortcut or alternatively the games executable found in the games installed folder and select PROPERTIES, then select the COMPATABILITY tab and select/check the box that says either MODIFY SETTINGS OF HIGH DPI VALUES or OVERRIDE HIGH DPI SCALING BEHAVIOUR. SCALING PERFORMED BY: then ​​Click OK and then APPLY. That should fix the problem. :)

The Game:
What do you know about archeologists? It seems to most of us that the fate of an archeologist is boring and consists of simple digging the ground and looking at the ancient vases. But it's not so. It's an interesting job and now you'll be able to learn more about it. The latest events proved that the life of an archeologist can be dangerous. Jane has just learnt bad news - her colleague has disappeared suddenly. Is it possible to find him? You'll have to join Jane Lucky in her search and you'll realize that the job of a simple archeologist can be breathtaking and unusual. You'll make some attempts to help this woman and various tasks will help you

Step by step you'll discover new places to look for hidden objects. Use all your skills and attention to prove you can be a responsible worker. You'll also feel you're a detective who is trying to discover the case on his own. You'll be given a list of subjects to make your search easier. Besides, you can look at the pictures to find things. But do it quickly because nobody knows where Jane Lucky’s colleague is. There are puzzles that need to be solved before you can find the solution to the problem. Solve them and learn what will happen next.

Having problems installing today's game?
If you have a problem installing or activating or getting Jane Lucky to work please visit the problems section, which you can find in the FAQ's thread HERE. Also read through the community’s comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted. The main issue we have is with the giveaway wrapper, which uses a Themida based code to protect the games executable. Unfortunately, Themida is also used to hide malware; so, as a precaution, some security software may block the installation and sometimes even delete the executable file. Blocking or deletion is usually determined partly by the way your computer is set up. Usually you'll get a message saying ''the file is corrupted'', but in reality, the files are okay. There are a couple of things you can do to overcome this issue. The first is to reboot in safe mode with networking, install the game then reboot, or secondly you can (at your own risk) temporarily turn off your security, install the game, then turn your security back on. A note of reassurance to those that choose the latter and quicker method. The game giveaway team have been giving away games for over a decade (Dec 2006 & prior to that, via the main site 2 or 3 times weekly from Oct 2006 to Dec 2006) and have 'NEVER' given away a game infected with malware; they always test every giveaway with several of the top anti-malware suites to ensure all games are free from malware.

Whiterabbit-uk, thank you very much.
I have a more general request: could you include a short hint when it is possible to change languages, especially in hidden-object-games? That would be great.
Thank you and all the best to you.

I played the game and I usually uninstall the game when I'm done however this time I can't uninstall it fully as the two application files will not uninstall. I try to and it says I require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to the file but I have never run into this problem. how do I do this ? thanks

Hi!

Game downloaded quick and opened faster! The graphics are good and the storyline, though familiar, follows a good pattern. Unlike some games, where you keep looking for next task, so far in this one you constantly go from one activity to the next. So far the game play has been good and moving along. Will go back to it later.
Thank you for another good game and have a great week,
Lee

I also have the error of needing 3D accelerators. I have a MSI VR Ready laptop that has 3D but ths game will not play for me. I love the free games you provide us all. Every so often I'm unable to play the given game. Can someone please tell me what to do to get it going?? Pretty Please,,, It has downloaded just fine but I can't open to play. Thank you

..............................Moderator Comment..................................
Please see the note I've added at the top of my review. That should fix the 3D acceleration issue. :)

If it takes this much trouble to get game running then it not worth it. Plenty of other hog games to play.

I get the same "This application needs 3D acceleration to run" error. I have a Win10 Home x 64 gaming laptop so wouldn't expect this. What I did find strange was that the name of the file generating the error was "SexyApp". When I saw that, I thought I had some kind of trojan but checked the game folder and there was a file in there by that name. Fairly odd choice. Anyway, I have a few HOGs yet to be played so didn't feel like spending anymore time figuring this out and just uninstalled it!

Thanks anyway GGOTDC, MPC and BFG.

Great to see you around Whiterabbit-uk!

Game downloaded and installed ok on windows 10. I found this hog enjoyable to play. The one thing I liked about it was that you could click on the object you wanted to find or click on the hint to find a random item in the list. There was an issue on a few of the scenes where the objects didn't show until you clicked on the hint but apart from that it is ok and I am definitely going to keep the game.

I managed to get through the game up to the escape through the jungle and then the game crashed. Would not go any further. I am running on a Win 7 Home Premium

Interesting story line, fairly simple mini games, and fairly easy hidden objects. No problems with 3D acceleration as reported by others and am on island part of game. Win7 Pro, 12GB RAM, fairly good video card. Good game for quiet afternoon (or morning). Thanks, Whiterabbit and GGAOTD.

Per chi ha problemi di 3D accelerazione, andare col tasto destro sul collegamento del gioco e cliccare su proprietà, quindi sulla scheda compatibilità cliccare su modifica impostazioni dei valori DPI alti e mettere il segno di spunta su overraide ridimensionamento valori DPI alti.
Cliccare su OK e poi su applica.

Alberto, You're a genius! This translates (Google) as "For those with 3D acceleration problems, go right on the link of the game and click on properties, then on the compatibility tab click on modify settings of high DPI values ​​Click on OK and then on apply", and it works!

Would not run. Received that I needed a "3D accelerator." I am running Windows 10. ?

I too got the "3D Acceleration" issue right after install. I checked and I have the latest Direct X and the 3D Acceleration is enabled. I have a good graphics card that can handle things and the driver was recently updated.

Looks like an interesting game! Thanks,
Anne

The game runs for me so far. If you have the 3D acceleration error, see if DirectX 9.0c End-User Runtime is installed.
If that doesn't work you could try going to
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Jane Lucky\config
Open config.cfg.xml using Notepad++ in admin mode
In

Find user config defaults and change acceleration 3d from true to false.

Jack H., Thanks for the suggestion, but sadly it didn't work.

Sieska , sorry to hear that. :(
If mine ever breaks I'll see if I can find something else to try.

Same problem with 3D Acceleration. I managed to get through a good chunk of the game up to the escape through the jungle. The game crashed and I got punted out. Each time I tried to restart, I got the "This application needs 3D acceleration to run." I have a fairly decent Nvidia card with 3D everything on a PC running Win10 (creator's update) and a ton of memory. The game is at least 7 years old, so that shouldn't be a problem! Ran compatibility troubleshooter, but still got the 3D acceleration flag. Too bad, was enjoying while it lasted.

Thank you anyway, Whiterabbit!

I get the same "This application needs 3D acceleration to run" error. I tried to change the settings in my graphics card, but the program is not one listed. I ran compatibility testing - that did not help. Would really like to try this game ... Any help greatly appreciated!

I too love HOGs, but this one says "This application needs 3D acceleration to run". Does anyone know if this is soluble? All help appreciated.

I installed this on two machines. It won't run on either. "You need 3D Acceleration. This application requires 3D Acceleration to run." I couldn't find anything in the FAQs that helped.
