Can I still get the missing worlds somewhere?
At first, getting worlds by playing or downloading doesnīt work (I donīt know that such things are possible, and I donīt know how that should work.). Every FinFin-version has its own number of worlds, and that is fixed and canīt changed. For more worlds you need a new FinFin-version. In Europe there are only maximal 4 Worlds available. To get the Lemo Valley, you have to order FinFin in the USA (just go to eBay [www.ebay.com , www.ebay.co.uk , www.ebay.de] and so on, but be sure to search international). On this search results at ebay.com you can find all FinFin offers world wide. (NOTICE: Be sure to look at the shipping and payment order, to see if it can shipped to you, before you bid.) The 5 World version from USA can be found there rarely. Just look at the title (Deluxe Edition) and the cover. To bid and buy at ebay, you must be registered there (free of charge).

The complete version (with all 6 worlds) is available in Japan, China and Taiwan

Where can I download FinFin?
You can find the DELUXE-EDITION in the Download-Area
You can find the chinese 6-World-Version in the Download-Area

What does "4 Worlds" mean? Is the Nest in one "4 world" versions included?
Maybe in a japanese Version. As far as I know in Europe and USA there is a certain sequence with the worlds and that is:
- Amile Forest - Tsubu Woods - Secret Inlet - Rem River Bank - Lemo Valley - Nest -
The number of worlds indicates, which worlds, from left read, are includet. That mean that e.g. the Nest is present only in the 6-World-version. And those doesnīt exists in Europe and USA. Explanation:

My graphic is so bad. Is it supposed to be like this?
FinFin has indeed a very low resolution. Here you can see a normal day picture in the typical graphic, like itīs normal: Download (Zip BMP 94kb). There are nevertheless little differences which dependent on the graphic card. You can see it best by night, where you can see the easy problems with the brightness transitions (best seeing at FinFin itself). The color of the bioscan shows you the compatibility of your graphic card:


green: all is OK
 
orange: slightly graphic problems

Any other colores are unknown. If you have really other colors, please send me a short e-mail with a night picture, where FinFin sits on the front bough. The bioscan should be on, to see the color.

Which Windows version does FinFin run at?
The following table tells you the answer (OK = it works, X = it doesnīt work, ? = unknown)

Windows 95 98 ME 2000 XP Vista 7 1 One positive notification so far under SP4

2 Works mostly in the "Compatibility mode"

3 Worlds OK OK OK 1 2 ? ?

6 Worlds (V 8.0) [Japan] OK OK ? ? ? ? ?
6 Worlds (V 9.0) [Taiwan] OK OK ? ? 2 ? ?

I use Windows XP and FinFin doesnīt work. Exists a patch?
There exists no official patch for FinFin on Windows XP. But a programmer has created its own patch to make the "Deluxe-Edition" of FinFin playable. You can find the instruction here (new window).

I have seen FinFin-Junior in the Secret Inlet. Is that possible?
I guess itīs improbable. Itīs very likely "Finnina", FinFinīs spouse. She is very small, because the water level is deeper than the front bank. In the right picture FinFin is to be seen and on the left one Finnina, and both are equally big.

I have installations problems. What can I do?
Sorry, I can not help because I never had problems with the installation. Please put your request in the forum. Maybe someone can help you.

I have colored FinFin in an other color. How can I revert that?
If FinFin at Stage 1 of a color you only need to feed him a Lemo of another color (except red) so he will turn back to normal.
At Stage 2 you canīt change back manually (as far as I know) because he will decline every color (except red and his current).
At Stage 1 & 2 FinFin will automatically change back to his normal color after ca 72 hours.
At Stage 3 you have to wait until full or newmoon on Teo (every 2 weeks) or you gave FinFin 4 Lemos of another color. Then he will change to Stage 1 of the new color. Then you only need 1 Lemo of an other color to change FinFin back to normal.

The specific colors and stages can be found in a table in the EXTRAS in "FinFinīs World".
