Game Stopping Glitches?

#1gravexr0bberPosted 9/30/2012 6:05:16 PM
I'm wondering if anyone else has had trouble with bugs in the game that completely ruin your story. I've had it happen twice: Doing the Deduction Knightbridge (None of the options would change color or initiate the cutscene, even though I had the correct answers) and investigating the journalist's office (when I open the file cabinet to inspect a note, the cursor is frozen and it shuts after Watson's dialogue).

The first bug was frustrating, but I reloaded a previous save and it worked. But, I had just saved when investigating the Journalist's Office and the bug repeats everytime I load it. I desperately don't want to replay the entire game because of this bug, but it almost seems like I have no choice.

Has anyone had problems like this? Also, any suggestions on what to do in my situation? I'm pulling my hair out.

That's never happened to me, nor have I heard of that happening. Sorry, my friend.
My only suggestion is reload.

The second bug happened to me, NOTE: This ain't a bug. You just need to check the "Discarded typewritter ribbon" in the trashbox before you could access the card in cabinat.

Yep, I've now had the Knightsbridge glitch twice and I'm done. The game refuses to trigger the cutscene no matter what I order I deduce the clues in. On the 2nd time playing through, I followed a game walkthrough on youtube, mirroring their moves. They get a "Perfect!" popup and a cutscene, I get nothing.

This is one of the reasons I don't feel bad getting this game free. If I had paid for this game only to be shut down 30 minutes in due to a game stopping glitch, I'd be pissed off and ready to murder some developers. As it is, I just know to avoid titles by this studio from now on.

Nbl_93, you are a God. I love you. That was the problem. The discarded ribbon wasn't listed in any of the guides I read and I completely didn't notice it. I never thought I'd be so happy to find out I'm stupid.

Thanks, man.

P.S. Just a side note, Don't rely too much on the guides, keep using the help system of the game (You'll need it a lot in the Carnival mission). There ain't no penalty on abusing that system.

I just beat the game and never had any game breaking glitches.

The only one i know of is the character cant move. The others arent glitches they are player mistakes

Yeah but that goes away within 10 seconds. Not a huge deal. Sometimes he takes a long walk in front of a door but if you hit b and reposition him he opens it np.

As Toby the dog I am at the part in where you have to click on the wooden pegs to make Toby jump from peg to peg. The problem is in my game Toby doesn't jump but he walks on air and is always a peg behind from where you are pointing.

I finally found a way to make it to the other side despite the glitch but then I am stuck. Instead of landing on the dock...Toby's last spot is a wooden peg. You can control Toby again but you are floating on air and the collision is too low to let you reach the dock on the other side. You end up being trapped in this area.

I have reloaded multiple saves and when I reach this area it is impossible to pass.

I even watched videos on Youtube in this section and it doesn't work on my game. Toby doesn't jump. He walks on air from peg to peg.

Anyone figure out how to solve this or has it happened to anyone?
