White Wolf of Icicle Creek Error

Bad news, everyone! I'm scheduled to record Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek for this weekend's livestream, but my livestreaming programs aren't working with the game.


Program #1 either hates recording the game, or loves recording my desktop. I'm not sure which.


Program #2, which is the better program, refuses to work with White Wolf, because the game runs in fullscreen.


I thought this game has a windowed mode! Doesn't that option show up, when you click the cog in the lower/right corner of the screen?  Or do I have an old, weird copy of the game without windowed mode as an option?  Please let me know!  It looks like, if I can't get the game to run in a window, I won't be able to play it for the livestream!

according the her interactive website white wolf of icicle creek has three modes 2 different fullscreen modes and a windowed mode. It said just to click on the "COG" icon on the task bar to open the options menu to choose which setting that you want. I dont know if that helps but maybe its a starting point.

When I played this game it had a windowed option. I don't know what went wrong for you.

If it helps, I recently replayed this one and while all the claims are it has a windowed mode. . .well, I couldn't find one, nor make any 'hacks' to get it to work working. So its not just you. I think there's a funky version out there.

Not so sure where you got your copy of White Wolf of Icicle Creek from but I got the game from the library and it had a windowed mode option under ''Settings''. If you are not able to film this game on time, I suggest playing Legend of the Crystal Skull and Phantom of Venice first so you could have more time to solve this problem. Alternatively, you can play the Wii version but I'm not sure how you're gonna record that live.

White wolf was one of my favorite Nancy Drew games to play. Although the fox and geese game became frustrating, I won after I made a mistake!

My copy had 3 modes including a windowed one but I suggest you email HER Interactive and they might be able to tell you if you have an iffy copy or something

No Michael, the White Wolf game won't record in fullscreen because of it's newer interface, but since it was the first game to have that interface, it doesn't come with a windowed option.
You're pretty much screwed.

Maybe contact Her Interactive tech support and ask them any questions relating to your problem? They will help you. If not, maybe try downloading the game from Her's website? I don't know if you have a download or CD, but I have a CD copy and I can do window option on my game..

My copy of the game doesn't have a windowed mode, but then again I haven't really done any tricks to try, so it may.

I would check, but the problem is that on my computer, none of the games work after i uninstall them about three times. I never finished the white wolf because of the timing element.

I personally have the same problem. I would suggest looking through the patches on the Her website to see if there is a fix for that.
