Having problems with your EA - Electronic Arts Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for Windows ?

Can't trace spells

\015 Used to have this game and played happily but lost the disc - bought it again but for some reason can't trace the spells - impossible to get more than 35-40% no matter what I do. Have looked for cheats but just can't get past it - on my old game was easy - how can I solve this? Have checked mouse speed ok, holding down magic button etc. etc. I don't mind bypassing the spells if that's possible, I just want to play the rest of the game! Have I got a dud copy?\015

Answers :

If you have Windows 7, you have to switch to the Window 98/Windows ME mode to get the clock speed synced correctly. From Windows 7, I found this took the following two steps after installing the game from the CD.

First, I had to right click on the HP game icon on the desk top and select "Properties" then the Compatibility tab. Then I selected to "Run this program as an administrator" option which automatically booted up the game. I then exited the game at the first opportunity.

The second step is to again right click on the desktop icon to the "Properties" Option, then select Compatibility. I then used the drop-down menu to select the Windows 98/Windows ME option. If the mode conversion works, a menu will come up when the program executes prompting you to make sure you want to use this mode. Note: the previous times I tried step 2 without doing step 1 first, this menu did not come up.
Change the game difficulty mode to normal or easy from the options menu.
