UNABLE TO PROCEED WITH THE GAME
Hey,

I'm stuck at "The Dark Tower" (3-6). Every time I get to the place shown in the pic (found on the internet): <CLICK TO SEE PICTURE>[www.supercheats.com] the program just hangs and I have to end the process with task manager.

This happens when the two witches - or whatever they are - are sneezing to destroy the barricade blocking the door.

This is the DxDiag report in case it is needed: (removed as the issue is resolved now)

All settings are on low/off, and all advanced settings are turned off.

I will greatly appreciate any help on this!

Hey dude. I have the exact same problem as you. It happened on both my windows 7 laptop and my windows xp computer which i just got a new graphics card for. I was gonna respond to you if i found out how to fix the problem at the end of year 3 with the 2 witch statues but i got nothin for now. Try going into the properties in lego hp years 1-4 and go to local files and click on verify integrity of game cache. That button basically downloads any missed and important files for the game. I just checked mine about an hour ago and i had like around 150 missing files. Unfortunately it didn't make a difference on my pc. But it might on yours. Give it a try. Just remember that your not the only one with this problem. I'm really really irritated cuz i wanna go on to year 4.

Hopefully somebody will help us out with this. But if i find anything i'll let you know ok?;)

Omg you actually got the ice to melt. Mine freezes right before the statues blow the fire to melt it.

Validating the game files yielded no new results, everything was fine. I tried getting past that passage again but to no avail, it's still crashing.

I actually started playing years 5-7 since this bug effectively prevents me from continuing/finishing the story... a bummer really, but I guess I'll have to live with it. For now, at least.

I also appreciate you notifying me if you get any news on this!

PS: I don't actually get the ice to melt. It crashes when I hit the witches and they're about to sneeze. The picture I embedded in the original post is just a random one I found on google ;D

So, I went in and played again(and again and again) but this time, before hitting the Fire Sneezers I took a picture: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=113113222

Oh yeah i see that. I might get lego hp 1-4 on my computer but with a different application like GOG and or gametap sometime. I'll see if it's steams doing or not.

Hope you looked in the other forum DEMSHELLS:) If ur enhanced graphics and vsync settings are off then turn them both on and restart the same. I just got past the freezing part and it didn't freeze:)

The only thing im stuck on is the part with the devils snare in the begining.
Osmosion 13. joulu, 2012 19.35 
Devil's snare? In year 1?
DEMSHELLS 13. joulu, 2012 20.34 
Ah, turning on vertical sync and the advanced settings (while the settings themselves are turned off) was a brilliant idea. It's working now!

A positive side effect was that my graphics card suddenly stopped making screeching noises.

Wow I can't thank you enough. Thanks man. :)
Osmosion 13. joulu, 2012 20.37
