  2. I really wanted to play this game – but as soon as I load it up it immediately crashes when selecting the baby’s name. Even downloading PetzA didn’t actually help or get the game to start.. such a shame 🙁

  3. The game makes me adopt a baby everytime I start it. I have line 10 of the same baby. I can send it to grandmas… but its getting to be a pain. Help?!

    • Yes I was gonna ask about the same issue. I can’t find a folder for where the babyz are kept though, and I have no idea how to just start a new game. Not to mention I don’t know how to get different babyz.

  4. I just downloaded this and it keeps crashing after I name my baby! I downloaded PetzA too but idk if I have done it correctly or not as it still keeps crashing… any tips?

  5. When I load the game it prompts me to adopt another baby even though I already have one. Ended up with five of the same babies, tried fixing with PetzA which seemed to work. However now I have the issue of not being able to send the babies to their grandma’s house. I’ve checked and can’t find the actual folder for it either. Any fix for this?

    • I’m having the same problem. I remember the files used to show up in “Adopted Babyz” but now that folder is empty, so I’m not sure where the babyz files are kept.

    • Oh! Creating a folder called “Grandma’s House” did allow me to send the extra away. Still no way to actually get rid of them, though.

  7. This game to me is great and cute, it does work up until the part where you have to adopt your first baby, when it ask’s for what the name will be. then it freezes and even crashes. not really sure on how to fix it, I have tried many times in seeing what I can do to fix it. even changing it to run as administrator doesn’t work and changing the Compatibility. if anyone gets it working, please do say what you did.

    • Google “PetzA” and install the program. It will work then. You might need to download the babyz executable.
      PetzA workaround also works for Petz/Catz/Dogz.
