We've just relased an update, so be sure to click on the "check version" menu item in the game to get the latest and greatest. Lots of bug fixes.

We've also released our 1st Mac OSX Build of Solitaire IV. So if you own a Mac OSX 10.4 or higher (or you know someone who does) we'd love to get it tried out.

Just go to the website and download it.

I am having trouble the same as Xuzik, she has put in a topic Game Trouble, so I won't copy the picture, but look at the picture she took of the screen, I found when I was playing Spider, the cards split like the picture she took, although when I moved my mouse around, they went back to normal. Is that any help?

Sandbar, go ahead and do a bug report when you see that by right-cliking on the titlebar or you may need to use the keyboard method of "CTRL+F8"

I sent a report in, but when i moved my mouse, the cards came good again, so don't know if that is any help, what i DID notice however, is it seems to be when I am moving a group of cards across to another card, for example in Spider, I don't seem to have trouble in say, Pyramid for instance, where you are only clicking on a couple of cards and not moving a heap of them.
The best way I can describe it, is some of the cards 'splinter' and 'break up', but so far it seems to be only when I try and move some of them across to the other group of cards. Moving the mouse clears it for me though.
Also, if I pause the game to take a photo, it clears also.

Since I was able to reproduce it here, I think it will be fine. Hopefully we'll have a fix early next week.

Okay Sandbar and Xuzika, that bug should be fixed with the update we did tonight. So do a Check Version, and get the latest build.
