I have played it on both XP and Windows 7 and it does the same thing. Does anyone have any advice on what to do? I really like the game and I hate the thought of not being able to finish it. Thanks.
Edit: Nevermind. it seemed to be an issue with my gamepad. I had tried it before with the keyboard, but it didn't work. Now it seems to want to work, though it takes several tries. Very strange.
