Episode 3 bugs

posted by WadeTheButcher on - last edited - Viewed by 862 users

I hit a major bug that won't allow me to continue. On the train when walking from the engine to the box car the screen/camera shifts under the train and far below the world. I keep seeing all those "take your time, release a quality product" posts and laugh... How could have this bug be missed?

May as well post your bugs/glitches in here.

  • Must read now!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Game breaking bug !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ps3

    do not play episode 3 yet!!!!!!! As the game is broken!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If u value all the time u spent on your save games then dooo not play!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As the fatal error message (your save data is corrupt) is back and it will wipe your save games completely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everything will be gone

  • For this game to have so long between episodes it is ridiculous that there are so many bugs. Does TTG even test the game before releasing it. So far I have found 3 major bugs, the under the world one on the train. Talking to the hobo when hes sitting outside on the log, when you talk to him hes standing up and the top half of his body is cut off but guitar is still low like he should be sitting and you are looking down. The third is when Katjaa is holding duck he is invisible. There's a crapload of small glitches also like peoples arms going through solid objects and the sort. I am very dissapointed with this and doubt I'll buy another TTG product after this.

    wow, are you serious, man? is it when you try to play a 3rd game?

  • xbox fix
    hey right ive spent all day with the problem:mad: but i think ive fixed it:eek: try this.
    when it says choose random choices press B to go back. when it pops up the screen that shows your woefully empty saves press the guide button and sign out. you are then given a message saying you must be signed in with the profile that purchased the game to play. sign back in. et voilia my saves where back after i chose device option before the start screen :rolleyes:
    it worked for me it might work for you.:cool:
    xbox only

  • Got the invisible Duck glitch, falling below the train and into the void glitch, and even a glitch where when you first meet Chuck and talk to him, I'm guessing he's sposed to be sitting down playing his guitar but he was standing up, so i was looking at his chest and didn't see his face.

  • Please fix the savegame issue. Ive kinda had it with the MAJOR bugs in with the saves. I start up the game to just check for episode 3 and notice my whole savegame from episode 1 and 2 is just gone for no reason what so ever since ALL savefiles are still in the maps. So i start a new game to atleast have a save for when episode 3 is released about 2 hours in i pause the game, when i click resume it starts from the beginning and i go like WTF?! And every option in the menu gives the same result, how is it even possible? I WONT play the game again until this issue is strongly resolved shortly since this honestly pisses me off quite alot. I like to support games i like and i liked the game up to a point but its just to damn broken. Its a shame. Fix it PLEASE or i want my money back and ill just get a better working pirated copy wich is probably true.

  • Seems like a common problem. Encountered it yesterday, posted up some threads and didn't get a useful response. Had a check through the support forums and there are a lot of threads on the issue, some being months old, which have yet to be addressed by any TTG staff.

    There are a few 'fixes' which people have come up with, most which do not work or are one-off cases where something has decided to swap and recognise the save.

    Basically from what I can tell it is linked in to how the game recognises save files, using 2 different locations to store information (No idea why) and 2 separate "Prefs.prop" files which seem to hold any user profile information (assuming also the most up-to-date save.) Sometimes a pref file decides to dump all your user data, and this messes with the save recognition. (again, an assumption.)

    It looks like the problem can originate from close to anything, just when the game decides it wants to fuck up. Personally mine came from when my choices were reversed during the openings of Ep 2 so I replayed Ep 1 with a rewind on the last chapter.

    From what I can see on the attentiveness of the TTG staff towards their support forum, you aren't going to get a reply nor a fix for a while.

    Edit: Don't bother trying to replay episode 1 either, it seems this problem is just as likely to crop up again for no reason.

  • Well they have lost another costumer then, bad for them.
