I cant open my backyard monster its stuck in ''logging in'' its almost 3 weeks pls help me with this problem

Try clearing your cache, try in another operating system, browser (i.e. Google Chrome) or upgrade your Adobe Flash Player (newest version).
If this fails or if you might have a bug (an error message appears). You should report it to their rep.
Your report should contain the following information:
1. A title that contains the specific error message you are seeing 2. Your User ID (located at the bottom left corner of the game screen, by the KIXEYE logo) 3. Again, the actual specific error message or condition you are seeing 4. System information from the following link:
How to gather system details:
Click the link ( and wait until the page stops loading data. Click the button that says "Export CSV". Find the file that gets downloaded onto your computer. Open that file with Notepad, TextEdit, or any other text editor. Copy all the information from the file. Paste that information into your forum post. It will look something like this: OS Type,OS Version,Browser Type,IP Address,Javascript Enabled,Cookies Enabled,Color Depth,Screen Resolution,Browser Window Size,Flash Version,Full Flash Version,User Agent "Apple Mac","OS X 10.7.1 Intel","Chrome 13.0.782.218","12.345.67.890","Yes","Yes","24 bit","1920 x 1080","1356 x 866","10","10.3.183","Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_1) AppleWebKit/535.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/13.0.782.218 Safari/535.1"
Please note that the portion above in bold is your IP address. You may wish to obscure the last three digits of this with XXXs.
Sombody will assist you as soon as possible.
Hope this helps.

Tengo una mac version 10.6.6 y no puedo escanear a mi escaner snapscan 1212

Perdoname, por favor, porque hablo espa?ol, pero no hablo de problems con tecnolog?a...
Puedes encargar 5 archivos para installar SANE en tu computadora. Es un met?do como TWAIN que las computadoras pueden usar para comunicar.
Despu?s de installar los archivos de SANE, puedes usar Graphic Converter 7, una utilidad para convertir y editar fotos. Se puede excanear usando los mandatos Scan>Scan with Image Capture... Cuesta $39, pero se puede usar grat?s por un rato.
Tambi?n se puede usar VueScan. El programa cuesta $39, tambi?n, pero es un programa para escanear solamente. No puede hacer m?s, y hace dos semanas o un mes que se puede usar gr?tis (lo siento, no recuerdo).
¬°Buena suerte!

Receiving the following error when trying to access Agfa 1212u scanner on Ubuntu. Could you advise what needs to be done. "Failed to open device 'snapscan:libusb:003:002': Invalid argument.

If the naming conventions are the same in the Ubuntu libraries as they are in the Mac libraries (no guarantee there, but I was just looking at them, and they look almost identical), it's not finding the appropriate driver for the scanner. I know that the SnapScan 1212u will work with Ubuntu, because I came across several discussions, as I was looking for a solution for my Mac. Have you installed the Linux SANE libraries? Agfa scanners were very popular for years, and mine still works great, too. I know that numerous Agfa scanners, including the 1212u are supported in the SANE backend libraries for Mac, allowing TWAIN acquisitions with devices that may no longer be supported with current scanning software.
I think you just need to install the SANE libraries, backends, and any interface (it's 5 files on the Mac). There's some additional troubleshooting information and links to files, here.

I cannot use my AGFA SNAPSCAN 1236 with Snow Leopard

I had the same problem. Upgraded from G5 PowerPC Tiger OS to iMac Snow Leopard. Have a Snapscan 1236U (ScanWise) and got the same error message ("cannot find the current ColorSync System Profile"). Downloaded trial version of VueScan ( , scanner worked, so purchased the VueScan Professional Edition ($79.99) (Standard Version is $39.99). My scanner is now working GREAT!
