I have a big problem with the Yahoo Version of Kudos and maybe some has/had the same problem:
The Game starts fine, and you can play for about 2-3 Days but then my whole system freezes (Sound too, you hear a crackling sound in a loop).
Then I contacted the Yahoo-Games guys and told them about my problem. They said: "Well, the games seems to start just fine. Must be your machine or the game itself…if so contact the developer. Maybe it helps if you delete and reinstall the game (And then the usual stuff: Check for latest drivers bla blah).
I did that, and while I was at it i tried the 60 Minutes trial. And guess what: Freeze !
I tried the Positech-Demo a while ago and it worked just fine. So I downloaded the actual Demo 1.17 and it worked without problems, i was able to play it to the end.
Conclusion: The Yahoo Version sucked. Then I played around a bit using the Kudos.exe from the demo on the Yahoo Version. It worked to my surprise (Could see the Title with Yahoo/Actiblabla Logo and play the Game) but it was still a demo.
I didn’t pay for the demo.
So I came here to ask for help.
Is there a patch that could help me play the yahoo version (Since the Yahoo Version had the Hamster i suppose it is based on 1.17 ?!? If so then I’m doomed).
Maybe someone of the Positech-Guys help me out if nobody knows a solution to this problem and since refund is out of option ?

Hi, your the second gamer to report problems with the yahoo version that don’t occur in the positech version. The exe files are different, and the yahoo one is ‘wrapped’ by trymedia. Unfortunately I don’t know what trymedia do to it, or what problems it can cause, or how to fix them, I can only really help if its the Positech one that goes wrong.
I wouldnt try running the exe from one inside the other, all kinds of things could go wrong. If your machine is somehow having problems with the trymedia version, I guess you could ask yahoo for a refund and buy the positech version?
Hamsters and parrots are only in the positech version.
Strange, cause the Yahoo Version definatly has both !?
Can you talk to Yahoo or these Trymedia guys to try to look after this problem ? I think if the gamedeveloper reports that customers have this problems they will maybe work faster on finding/solving the problem.
Refund isn’t possible (48 Hours passed)
So I’m stuck with the not working Yahoo Version for now.
Since the Demo Kudos.exe kinda works on the Yahoo Version (Stays Demo, but don’t crashes), could you provide me with the kudos.exe from the full version ? Maybe this combination would work.
wow thats weird. something else you could try (because you really do want to have hardware acceleration on it you can) is to slide the troubleshooting slider in the display control panel to the left one or two notches. I’ve seen that fix all kinds of things like this.
