Issues fixed

Black screen on FMVs (Windows 7)

Use compatibility mode
  1. Go to the game directory.
  2. Right-click on "Garfield.exe".
  3. Go to "Compatibility".

Attic Minigame Bugs

The Attic minigame crashes and the vacuum stops working.
The only known fix right now for crashing is to not use the vacuum, when the cupboard closes. As for the vacuum not working, just bump to a spider while holding one of the vacuum buttons.
