Looking forward to learning how to get Dreamfall Chapters and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey to play on my PC.
Dreamfall Chapters always freezes after Nela throws the bomb at the guards in Book 2[just after the Data Theft], the game then shows Zoe laying on the ground, unconscious and someone dragging her away by the shoulders, the game then loads to the next Chapter, but ..STAYS a dark screen and when I try to click it, it gives error message:
Dreamfall Chapters is not responding
Close the program[this works, but the game is gone and it reverts back to desktop]
Wait for the program to respond[I've tried this many times, ALL NIGHT,etc and the game NEVER responds, the dark screen is the only thing that shows...:-(
Sorry, still searching for the "FAQ" willing to learn, but slow and patient, ty again

Dreamfall The Longest Journey Saga still won't play...:-(
Same issue: Click PLAY=says "running" for about 5 seconds then reverts to PLAY button...
Guess this is a game I PAID for that is just wasted $...oh well, I still like Steam adn like Dreamfall Chapters..
but, I am doubtful "if" I buy anything new...
ps: just installed EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU, Dreamfall Chapters now plays smoothly, NO crashing/freezing/stuttering/stalling/fade to blurry dark screen..etc..:-)

I enjoy Chapters a lot! It's a wonderful game.
Sadly, I have failed to be able to play Dreamfall:The Longest Journey, it won't play when I click either the desktop icon or inside Steam, with their icon for play, it always shows:
the black "running box" shows for about 5 seconds, then disappears.
This happens using the desktop icon or inside Steam, using their icon.
Clicking any other desktop icon[other Steam games:Dreamfall Chapters, Syberia 3,etc, ALL work perfectly and load the game clicks when I click PLAY...
I've heard there is a way to play Dreamfall:The Longest Journey by launching the game directly from the ".exe", but I don't know where the ".exe" is?
I've also heard that playing Dreamfall:The Longest Journey by using "Compatibility Mode", that is playing in earlier Windows OS, like Windows XP, Service Pack 2, etc...I've tried this but gotten "error message" and still Dreamfall:The Longest Journey NEVER played.
funny thing is, I can play The Longest Journey and Dreamfall Chapters, but NOT Dreamfall:The Longest Journey, very confused here for sure...:-(
I've deleted/uninstalled and re-installed Dreamfall:The Longest Journey MANY times, but so far, nothing I've tried has been successful...:-(

In Steam, right click the game[Dreamfall:The Longest Journey], Properties, Local Files tab, Click browse files:
it shows : Dreamfall:The Longest Journey icon, clicking it does NOTHING!
ran "compatibility mode" it recommended Win XP SP3, but it didn't work either...
I've deleted and reinstalled this game maybe 50 times and it never worked, never played.
many posters have told me how well the game plays for them, but so for, for me, nada...
