IT'S A FUCKING GLITCH YOU FUCK TARDS! After 20 attempts it finally worked. If I did nothing different each attempt and it finally works after doing the same fucking thing over and over again then it's a fucking glitch and it luckily didn't happen on the 20 attempt. SHUT THE FUCK UP AND STOP ACTING LIKE WE'RE FUCKING RETARDS!

    You're doing it wrong.

  • @ThunderCrapper said: None of this is working for me. Also I haven't seen a walker in the house but I do hear some groaning. This does appear to be a glitch if this many people are having the problem.


    there is a walker in the house its marks
    zombie he comes to the stairs and puts his arms through the gaps

  • i know how to talk to brenda when u open the door put the marker on lee then when she says stop right thir stop and she will to the put the marker on brenda and u will be able to talk to her

  • I don't care if it's a "glitch", a bug, a joke, or the intended design. What I know for sure is that

    IT. SHOULD. NOT. BE. THIS. FRUSTRATING!

    There are many people who obviously did not take basic logic classes in school, and don't have any such skills gained through life. Just because you didn't experience this problem does not mean that it does not exist. Software is complex, and this game runs on multiple platforms and sub-platforms (i.e. versions of Windows, supporting files, etc.) and even as designed, offers multiple choices.

    This does not excuse this problem from existing as it does, for so many people, and for so long--no matter the cause.

    It took me many attempts to get past this point, and I very nearly uninstalled this game (which I am not all that impressed with in the first place). The method that finally worked for me was to rapidly and repeatedly hit "W" whenever Brenda was NOT pointing the gun at Lee. That sentence needs to be read a second time, because technique really does matter. Every time I hit "W" rapidly but waited in between presses--which is to say, whenever I moved really, really slowly--I ended up getting shot. Ironically, I didn't get past this glitch/stupid design until I tapped "W" rapidly and repeatedly, meaning that moving more quickly toward Brenda was necessary to get past this point.

    What happened in my case (I am not arrogant/stupid enough to say "What will happen for you...") is that I'd move forward while the gun was pointed at Katjaa (hitting "W" quickly and repeatedly, but NOT by holding it down), then Brenda would speak and point the gun at me, and I'd stop immediately. When she pointed the gun at Katjaa again, I'd repeat: Rapidly and repeatedly hit "W" until Brenda spoke again, stop, wait... And eventually she'll back up enough that zombie Mark grabs her.

    If I'm even right that the way I used "W" made the difference, this is a nuance that belies the rotten attitude of the people insulting those of us who encountered this glitch/stupid design. What we have here is counterintuitive; if someone is threatening you and someone else with a gun, don't approach slowly, move more quickly (but don't run).

    And they called us the idiots.

    Anyway, I hope this helps someone, and I have zero apologies to anyone for my anger at this annoying problem and my response to it.

  • Uh...you're aware that you can just hold the "W" key, right? You don't have to press it repeatedly and it sure as hell doesn't matter whether you press it rapidly or slowly. The only thing that matters is that you stop pressing it as soon as Brenda has the gun pointed at you. You can try it out yourself. All the game was trying to get you to understand is "don't move towards people when they have a gun pointed at your face." I don't know. Seems pretty logical to me. Feel free to uninstall the game, though, if you feel so frustrated by this sequence. We wouldn't want you to get a tummy ache now, would we?

  • I extra registered to post the solution i just found out. You have to press BACK all Time,and dont use FORWARD to move ahaed,use the RIGHT key and only tapp it. So keep pressing S all time while tapping D to move forward.This prevents Lee from auto moving forward when Brenda raises her gun,and a moment later the "hotspot" apears on her to talk. I hope this helps someone ;)

  • I read on the other forum that some one had to turn off the PS3 remote control to accomplish this scene. I'm playing on PC but I have different receivers for my keyboard and mouse. So I removed the mouse receiver and used my broken mouse which came with the keyboard. Before that Lee just kept walking when he should have stopped (tap D and wait technique). Finally I got over that scene.

    There might be a problem with multiple controllers? I think I did everything in the same way before and after this "fix". Just walk and stop method doesn't work for everybody. I think all the players got the basic idea. It might still be all about the millisecond timing but in any case it souldn't be that hard.

  • First of all, I'd like to clarify there IS a glitch going around, at least as far as PC version goes, and I've stumpled with it on one of my playthroughs.

    The glitch happens when you are moving towards Brenda, and she aims to you and tells you to stop moving. If the game doesn't glitch, then you just release the control (which makes the character stop moving) and you'll soon have the interact option to talk to her. This goes about 3 times.

    The glith that most users are reporting is that - for some reason - when the woman points the gun at you, the character keeps moving forward IN SPITE the player had stop moving and even released the controller. There is no way to make him stop moving. Obviously, this gets you shot without any chance to interact.

    Now, when I got this glitch, after dozens of tries, I tried user "ThisGameSucks" method and, as he said, it works. Basically, tapping w very slowly or holding 'w' until Brenda aims at you won't work if the glitch is happening, and Lee will get shot. However, rapidly tapping 'w' (not holding, but tapping quickly) until she aims at you does do the trick and allows you to interact and advance with the story.

    This IS a glitch, since the character SHOULD stop when the player stops pressing the 'w' key, regardless if he was tapping fast, slowly or just holding it. But on several ocations, Lee keeps moving forward in spite of what the player is pressing or not. Having this said, the glitch doesn't happen all the time, and rewinding it or re-installing the game might get it solve, but the workaround "ThisGameSucks" provided did seem to work to me as it did to him.

    I suppose Telltale Games should take a look into this because it is a semi-game breaking bug (I say 'semi' because there seems to be a workaround, but if players don't know about it, they'll be stuck for days before getting lucky). Also, other users should be more considerate and less "cocky" when players are reporting this sort of things. I'm glad you didn't encounter such glitch.
