When I try to start TimeLapse, I get an error message saying ``scripting error [bad argument type].'' Can anyone tell me what this means and what I can do about it?

I would contact the maker of the game.  Usually there will be a toll free 1-800 or 1-888 # on the box or manual.  This probably means that your OS is not the intended one for the software or simply just an error in the game that the manafactuer will probably replace for free.

While Iceman883 probably is correct about contacting the game's maker, he did not explain what the error message -- ``scripting error [bad argument]'' -- means. And, last week I sent the manufacturer -- Hammerhead -- three e-mail messages, none of which was answered. I called the Caifornia company Friday, but i was out Friday evening. Someone from Hammerhead called me about 6 p.m. Friday and left a message saying they would call back and invited me to send an e-mail message saying when i would be at this number. I told them the first day I would be home would be today, Wednesday. When they didn't contact me by 5 p.m. EDT, I called and left the second voice mail message asking them to call men. They have not done so and it's almost midnight Wednesday. I'm running Windows 95, and unless I've done something wrong in configuring some software. I doubt if my OS is incompatible, so taking the game back to the sote in a city 35 miles from here might not solve the problem.

I once was responsible for the repair of a very early front end system for the newspaper where I work, I'm not afraid of trying to make changes with the advice of  someone on the other end of a phone line

some software is just bad i know this is not a common tale...  another thing is, do you totally meet system requirments stated on the box?  if not this could be it.  are you running win95?  is your CD fast enough?  make sure the disk is clean.  if it is scratched theres your problem.  your cdrom laser could be dusty.  try reinstalling it.  if this does not work then i recomend taking the game back and trying another one.  do you have a system checker?  maybe look for one at www.fileworld.com to make sure your system has not errors.  I hope this helps you!!
