Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

I've had 2 Big Fish Games for over a year. Star Defender 3 & 4. Somehow over time either from something I did or a glitch in the program It now fails to play. I've downloaded them numerous times to no avail. When I click to start the game, I get a momentary blink on tne screen as if it wants to load but can't. I've also gotten a message that I have to close a game that's in progress which is not the case. There's a link missing that keeps me from playing. Maybe you can help?

Since you downloaded the games several times but you are getting the same problem, Did you download/install the games to your computer without uninstalling the previous one? If not, try to uninstall the old one and download again the new one.

If you get the same problem, try to upgrade your Java (maybe it has something to do with the Java Script but not sure).

If you keep on getting the same problem, the last option that I could think of is to perform a System Restore. If you still remember the time you first install the programs/games to your computer, you may restore your system a day before the installation. Example, you installed the games last June 15, 2009, you may do a system restore on June 14, 2009

After performing a system restore, try to re-download the games.

IMPORTANT: All programs that were installed after you download the games might be deleted if you perform a system restore.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

New computer-for some reason my Big Fish games did not get transferred from old to new-how do I get app and old games-I have had an account with yall several years-do not remember any passwords etc

Hello, Shirley -

1. I took the liberty of re-categorizing your question to the category for Games from the category for Big Fish Computers (a brand of computers), where it landed initially.

2., a website intended for questions and answers on how to go about repairing things, offers no accounts for games.

This is the link to the home page for Big Fish Games:

If you scroll down that page, at the bottom you will find a Customer Support link. Click or tap on that link.

You can contact the Customer Support staff via email here:

Best wishes.

I am asking about games I have paid for. Was a member for years, but can't get back on. Not video games. Games on PC!

If you bought games from big fish, they have a record of what you bought. If you can not get on your Big Fish account you need to contact their customer support at

Having problems with big fish games on my computer

Make certain you are using their latest software.

1) Open your Big Fish Games module that lists all your games.
2) Click on the little "gear" icon that says "options"
3) Click the "About" tab that should be to the far right at top
4) Click the button to Check for Software Updates.

If there are any available, it will then be updated and you should restart your computer and try again.

Good luck

Big fish games keeps charging me $6.99 every month since sept. 2012 I have not purchased any games in that time nor does it show as a credit to my account. I have contacted my credit card company to stop...

The only thing you can do is to continue to contact big fish games and explain your situation. You've already contacted your credit card company so that is good. Make sure they put a stop payment on that charge so no further charges will occur.

I have canceled my order to Big Fish Games. But still getting billed. I do not plan to pay for this.Take this transaction off 6GB13974DY601344N.

If you've cancelled your order with Big Fish Games and still being charged on your PayPal account, first verify with Big Fish about this inquiry if the order was cancelled, inform them about the charge that's showing on your PayPal, and then call PayPal hotline to dispute the amount that was charged for the said transaction.
