alduin won't approach (spoilers)

anyone know how to fix this glitch where alduin doesnt show up when you use the elder scroll to go back in time?

You just have to reload- it's a common bug, and that is the only known way to fix it at the moment.

how far are you reloading? There should be an auto set point after you come back from the time warp thats when he shows up thats when you hit him with the dragonrend.

On my fifth reload he finally decided to show up. Keep reloading until it works.

I know how to get around it. Open up the console and type in "enableplayercontrols" sans quotes right when you go back in time (preferably somewhere in the middle of them fighting the first dragon, but far far before they say Alduin approaches), and just move around a bit until Alduin is supposed to show and just keep moving. He'll show up eventually.

I ran into this bug myself (which consistently didn't fix itself through reloading) and I managed to get it to work that way.

Tag for later...I ran into this problem, too. Off to Thanksgiving dinner now, but will try the fix tonight.

I can't really remember where i saw this but it worked for me. Use the scroll anywhere, wait 24 hours, talk with Partmax (or however the guy is called) but don't use the scroll on the rift, fast travel to solitude, use the scroll again and wait another 24 hours, then go to the rift of the time and finally use the scroll.
