The Dink Network

Dink stops walking

Bane of the Magi

I seem to be about 3 years behind everyone in the discovery of Dink Smallwood, so apologies for that. Found you via hamumu and Supreme with Cheese. I'm trying to get through Bane of the Magi and I keep getting a screen freeze. Now, I have just installed a wireless keyboard, so don't know if that is anything to do with it. But Dink tends to stop and I can't move him at places like walls and posters (sometimes if he bumps into someone). I have to reboot my pc and then of course have lost all the progress thus far from my last save. I run on XP. Any ideas where the problem may be?

Chop your own wood, and it will warm you twice. 
What version of dink do you have? 1.06/1.07/1.08

Hey, given that Dink Smallwood is almost 10 years old, a mere 3 doesn't make any difference. Welcome to the forums.

Sorry, but I can't help with your problem.

I did get the 1.08 upgrade, but I think it may have been the driver for the keyboard. I uninstalled and installed again and it seems to be OK now - fingers crossed!
Thanks for the welcome - I'll probably be back when I can[t figure something else out.....
