Just Some Buggies

Bug List (List your bugs encountered here. Provide Hardware Specifications)

(Also wanted to thank Doug Tabacco for the email and quip. hehehe. :P)

#1 Not sure if this is a bug or not, In Bosco's when Sam reads out the magazines, the text goes through the list Organ Trader, Self Loathing Weekly, Hotbunny. But before Sam can actually say "HotBunny" Max jumps in and says "Oh let me see that", referring to Self Loathing Weekly.

#2 Also not sure if this is a bug, but it is annoying. Once you have something in your hand, you can't get rid of it until you leave the room or area that you're in. Same goes for the crosshair. Usually the item goes back into the inventory once you try it with something else, but that isn't the case here.

#3 In Sybil's Psychotherapy business, When using the Tear Gas Gun on the Fan behind the Soda Popper, Sam says something (forget what) but his voice has an extremely strange echo. This might make sense if he were walking over to the fan and speaking into it, but it only happens when you use the Tear Gas Gun on it, and this does not make any sense to me?

#4 Sound is "grainy" on some people's systems (One Report is from a user with an Audigy ZS Card. http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1215 http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=691

#5 Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 causes seemingly random errors upon initial starting of the game. Some users report that restarting the game fixes the issue. http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1199

  • When the game ends the credits roll and after that you just get a static screen with some traffic type sounds playing in the background. can't get out of it other than going back to windows and crashing the app.

    (well thats what happened to me anyway)

    Me too. Pretty crazy. I was trying to get that options bar to come down, but no ...

    For #2,

    Right clicking always works for me for removing an item from the hand, or the aim cursor for the gun.

  • Right-click to remove the item.

    *spoiler warning*


    Yeah... it spoils the joke. And I think that happened somewhere else for me to.
    UPDATE: When you ask Sybil for som defense for the hypnosis, then a line is jumped! Just replayed the game, couldn't resist :D

    Another minor bug thingy... After the soda poppers has escaped in their van (and so on) their van is still standing next to Boscos Store :) (not after Sam is kidnapped I just noticed)

    Here's an odd one: if I play the game with the sound over my speakers, everything is fine, but if I plug in my headphones, I can't hear the voices. Only the music. I didn't think of checking wether or not the sound effects play. Any ideas?

    Another thing is that every time after I reboot, the game tells me that it couldn't find the activation key. I have to click "I already purchased this game" again, and fill in the code from the email and my password, and it'll work fine.

    Those are the only two bugs I encountered so far. I'm running it on a 2.8GHz P4, 1GB of memory, a GeForce7800, and an Audigy 2. What might be an issue is that I'm running it on Windows Vista RC1. I haven't tried it on XP yet, but is this is an issue, it might be wise fixing it, seeing how the next episodes are going to be released after Vista has come out.

  • Those are both really weird. :eek:

    I know, the activation thing I can sort of figure, it being on an unsupported OS and everything, but the voices?

    Only guesses I can make at the cause are either channel issues (as in, if you listen to a 5.1 sound source on stereo headphones, you only get the left and right channels (usually the music) and not the center channel (usually the voices), or dodgy unsupported Creative drivers (lord knows Creative writes poor drivers).

    I'm not sure if the game is even played out in 5.1 channel sound though, so.. just guesses.

    I'll install the game on XP Pro SP2 tomorrow, and see what that gets me. I'll keep you posted.

  • I can't reproduce the audio thing on an Audigy LS under vista, sorry :(
