Common JP Problems/Solutions

posted by TonsOfChocobo on - last edited - Viewed by 5.9K users

Let's consolidate solutions to common problems mentioned here so far. Add more fixes if you know of any.

-Frame Rate is lagging
In the graphics settings, lower the Shadow quality to Low and/or turn off the DoF option. This appears to be a graphics card issue on certain ATI cards.

-Mouse pointer randomly goes missing during Exploration sequences
Close the game and reopen it.

-Game goes back to main menu after completing a scenario
The game will only progress during a Load playthough. If you are playing using the Scenario option, the game will reset to the menu after completion, as was intended.

-Game won't start up again after exiting.
Open the Task Manager and look for the game in the Processes tab. Select it and hit End Process. Try starting game again.

-Certain Achievements not activating
Some achievements must be obtained through a Load playthrough and won't activate if playing on Scenario.

  • I am stuck on dialogue. I thought the game might have glitched, but I looked for a walkthrough and the guy seems to have been able to get out of the dialogue and back to the main screen where you can select which area you want your dude to go to. specifically, Im where Yoder has to say "got any dirt on Sorkin?" and once I get an answer I need to be able to get out of the dialogue. Please help, I havent been able to progress, and the dialogue window wont close on its own! Esc just takes me to the main menu.

  • Hello all, I haven't posted much on this forum, as I don't usually have issues with Telltale games that render them unplayable, however Jurassic Park unfortunately has made this necessary. Has anyone had these issues, and solved them? I'm playing on a PC.
    1) Logitech dualaction keypad's right trigger does nothing (so I cant enter into conversations)
    2) Saved games won't transfer from one machine to another, (I am moving over autosave.save, and autosave.prop. I even tried moving over the prefs, to no avail)

    and 3) keyboard controls are unresponsive in quickly paced scenes, and sometimes pushing the wrong key will actually be registered as successful. This is a smaller issue really compared with #2, as I am trying to play it tonight on another machine but do not want to start over from the beginning. Which leads me to my last question:

    Is there any way to just start from a different chapter?

    Overall though loving the story, however I feel the new interface is a bit of a snub to traditional adventure gamers... but I wont complain, great work so far despite the bugs.

    That happened to me too. I found out that all you have to do to exit a conversation is press Z.

  • I managed to find a solution to at least start from the beginning of the chapter that you left off on, though I think Telltale would mind me publishing it in this forum, as they might consider it some sort of exploit. It would be nice to just move the save game, and there might be a way to get them to work by changing the registry more, I just didn't go looking that deeply. However if anyone is in desperate need (as I was) to at least start from the chapter they left off on from a different machine, you may PM me and I can divulge. It's nothing too difficult and only requires regedit.

    As far as the control issues go, I still can't manage to find a button for conversations on my logitech, so I'll stick to my sterling bronze status and fumbling on the keyboard controls (this could completely be my fault but I'm finding them exceedingly frustrating; and I usually prefer the mouse/keyboard...).

    To note, I've had all of the issues mentioned above, minus the scenario menu reset though I managed through them, with the same solutions (task manager, restarting [I cant count how many times I've restarted...], etc) I wonder how prevalent these issues are? And if this game warrants a patch. It just seems some of these issues might be common for PC users, not sure about console users.

  • I'm also getting the mouse pointer issue. When the best solution anybody has come up with is "restart the game," I have to hope that Telltale is working on fixing this. After the third time slashing my way through the jungle (since I can't make it past the next search scene without a mouse pointer), I'm about ready to give up on the game.

  • When I pause the game and then try to continue, nothing happens!

  • -Game goes back to main menu after completing a scenario
    The game will only progress during a Load playthough. If you are playing using the Scenario option, the game will reset to the menu after completion, as was intended.

    Why? Is there a possibility for game to continue after particular scenario completion? Can you make a patch? It kills immersion...

  • I am also having the problem where you can't play the game after closing, i get a black screen and can hear the t-rex in the background.

  • ok i've solved it. If you press Cmd + F it switches out of full screen cmd+f again to resume. but this is shit telltale, why does it do it?

  • I had an odd problem, though I downloaded the game from Telltale I played it on Steam (I don't own it on Steam, but I played it on Steam as a non-Steam game, if that makes sense) but when I closed the game Steam would tell me that it was still open. Then Steam would refuse to close because it said that Jurassic Park was still running. The only way I could fix it was opening the Task Manager and closing Steam directly though Processes.

    I run Vista. Also, that doesn't happen with any of my other games.
