Episode 5 - House of Glass (Bug in Game, Download Patched Version to Fix)

posted by gillnavisingh on - last edited - Viewed by 3.6K users

When Marty enters the house of Glass to find Emmett - after revealing to Officer Parker that she is the arsonist... and seeing Emmett and Citizen Brown inside the House of Glass

Nothing happens after the cutscene where the two Emmetts talk...

I can't get out of the house, i can't interact with anything, I'm trapped... :mad:

I'm supposed to open "The upstairs wall" because "The Downstairs wall" won't open.

But nothing happens, and i click everything, and use everything in my inventory...

What am I supposed to do right after I enter the House of glass?

MOD EDIT: This is a known game-breaking bug, please check in this support thread for the latest updates on a fix.

There is a working savegame at the start of the glass house here, and one at the end of the glass house section here.

  • Finished the game, no further issues. Nice job, guys!

    BTW, if you want to see how the game glitches on an old Dell running Win XP, drop me a line. I'm right up the road in Rohnert Park, and I still have the game saved at that point.

  • Hello dxdy!
    Yor desription does not work. I think there is a great bug in the game and there must be patch, asap.

    Kind regards.

  • How can you get the dirt on her? I can't find anything...what did YOU do?

  • How did you get the dirt on her? I talked to her but I can't find anything..how did YOU do it without the bug?

  • I'm stuck too.
    And there's another bug. If you use the phone helmet, you still have the option to talk to Edna even if she's been taken away by officer Parker.

    1. go to future house (future furniture) and take flower from table, exit from house
    2. go to officer Parker stand and switch flowers (you take flower with record device)
    3. put this flower in future phone booth
    4. go to future house (future furniture), use panel on wall and press green button
    5. call future phone booth, pretend to be Carl Sagan and ask Trixie to call Edna
    6. Talk Edna and you got dirty secret
    7. go to future phone booth and take flower
    8. give flower to officer Parker

    why you need to talk to Edna if you already know her secret? this dont have anything with game story

    I mentioned it because it's something unusual that might have something to do with the bug of the glass house.

    OR

    It might be that the glass wall that's between Marty and the camera is preventing my clicks on the wall handler (?)

    Since the House of Glass bug has been officially quashed (download the patched BttF to play) I'm closing this thread.
