Glitches on episode 3!

posted by farchondo on - last edited - Viewed by 387 users

I don´t know you guys but I just played episode 3 on my mac. The game was pretty good, great story telling and twists, I think is the best so far in the 5 episode series. But what about all those glitches!!!!

Many times biff and especially Lorraine character has all those squares on their faces and color glows in their eyes, bad programing or bad render I don´t know...

When you are walking through Hill Valley there are some posters in front of the alternate store, those posters have weird lines like a bad tuning in a television set.

The game is great but those troubles took me out of the story. I really hope they fix them for the dvd release. Anyone else saw this? or is it just the mac version that´s bug. :eek:

    That's probably your computer. I have a five year old Macbook with no glitches at all. The only thing that happened was one time when Marty's dad was talking in the garage his speech and mouth went out of sync.

  • I didn't notice anything like that for the PC version, but I did however notice (which was really distracting) was that ppl's name tags would clip under their shirt while they were talking, found this extremely annoying because when it did the tag would go dark and then pop back bright again, flashing. And marty's eyes behind the soup window, looked really creepy.

    I next to nothing about Mac's but it sounds like a driver issue.

    You really think so?? I have a Macbook pro brand new, I just bought it...

    I also forgot to mention, I couldn´t even read the numbers clear in the Biff´s watch puzzle when you have to put on the code from George´s video still photo. There also appeared those weird glitches... so I had to bling guess what I was putting.

    Yea. The only thing I've seen is the name tag thing. Other then that I've not had any problems. I've been lucky with each game. Some people mentioned glitches in the other episodes too that I didn't experience.

    I can read Spanish just fine. It looks like you are short on RAM though. You really only have 256 MB? The minimum requirements for the game are 2 GB.
