Crash in SBCG4AP Ep. 2 (Wii)

****Spoiler warning, just in case****

I was just playing Strong Badia the Free and exploring/messing around with stuff. I went to the photo booth, put a bunch of stuff on, and went to leave. As the screen was going black, it stopped with maybe 15 degrees or so left and froze. I couldn't get to the Home menu or anything except hold the console power button until the Wii turned off. This was all pretty soon after escaping the house-I did a bunch of stuff by the fence/Cheat and went to the car and then the booth. I can't remember all of the clothes, but I think it was basically all the Homestar stuff, the eyepatch, the champ belt, and the moustache.

I also found a couple of minor glitches. After digging up the shirt to the left of the fence, a random dug up spot appeared in front of the Cheat where nothing was buried. I can probably snap a shot and send it to myself if you want. Also, I leveled up before leaving the house (and thus before getting the map), and the Map icon appeared and looked clickable, but didn't do anything.

  • Tried it again, same clothes, and it happened again. I don't feel like going through and seeing if it's one piece in particular, but it was all the stuff I said earlier, except the moustache got taken off automatically when I put on the Homestar head. I did have it on first, though, in case that could be part of it.

    Also, another minor glitch: if Strong Bad is doing one of his minor talks (where he doesn't stop moving) after putting on a piece of clothing and you make him move, he will glide without moving his feet while he is talking. It's kind of funny actually.

    Edit: By the way, I'm not in widescreen, which I know was a problem for people with Episode 1. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    Edit 2: I just did it again with only the secret shirt, and it worked fine, so it most likely has to do with the clothing items I had on.

  • Hey CK, thanks for all of the info. If you can track down which clothes are giving you problems I would love you forever. I'll be looking into it on this end. Thanks!

    OK, I'll see what I can do. I didn't feel like narrowing it down last night because I was more interested in actually playing, but at some point I'll try going piece by piece and see what crashes it.

  • Actually, don't worry about it, I'll just track it down on our end. If something weird comes up or I have trouble, I'll shoot you a PM.

    OK. I did try a couple things already, though. It's something involving the Homestar clothes (head, pants, shoes, and shirt), in some combination. It involves the head in some way, because I tried the head on its own and the pants, shirt, and shoes together, and both worked fine. When I added the head to the other three, though, it crashed again. So it seems like either the head and one or two others, or all 4 together. Hopefully you'll be able to figure it out more concretely.

  • I had a similar freeze up; Strongbadia Shirt, Eyepatch, Camo pants, Knit cap, same 15 degree freeze up when changing back out. The next time I tried I made sure I took everything off first. >__<

    I also had it freeze on me this morning just after saving (atleast it said it had been saved; I hope it didn't crash WHILE saving); I had had my King defeated in the castle version of the G&G board and needed to save to take off.

    I found a couple more crashes in the Throne Room, one of them like the one mentioned above. Unfortunately, they didn't seem to be caused by something in particular. The first time, I went through everything, played the board game for a while trying to get all of the interactions, and when I went to quit so I could save, it crashed.

    Next, I rushed through most of the dialog and stuff, tried to save before playing the board game, and it crashed as it was saying "Game Saved". Unfortunately, it didn't actually save yet.

    Then, I tried again, saving periodically. It was fine until I played the board game again. I went straight for the hat, quit, and tried to save, and I got the crash as it was saving again.

    Edit: Just tried again, went for the hat, quit, and this time it crashed as it was going back to show Strong Bad.

    Edit Again: I gave it one more shot, and it quit when I tried to save again. Then, I just decided to finish it and go for a low score or whatever later. I beat the game, and just after the KOT said "Ah, crap" it crashed again.

  • Sorry for all the replies, but I keep getting crashes. It's frustrating, partly because I just want to beat the game, but mostly because there doesn't seem to be anything causing it. It just seems to feel like crashing. I tried saving in a different slot, but that crashed too. Then, one time I tried to quit after the first turn because I didn't like what happened, and it didn't even get out of the screen before crashing.

    Thankfully, I just was able to beat it, get the hat, and get through the credits without it crashing, but I just hope you can figure out what's causing the problem, because it's very annoying.

    Oh, and another bug I found: If the Cheat attacks Homestar on the Open Field (or whatever the beret one is), it will show him losing and moving back a square, then show him getting the hat, but when it goes back to the board, he is on the Open Field again standing with Homestar.

  • Hello Telltale staff,

    I'm experiencing a major game ending crash that is preventing me from finishing Episode 2.

    After I complete the Maps and Minions game, the cutscene between Strongbad and The king of town begins. Right after strongbad leaves, when the king realizes he's been tricked, he says "Oh Crap"
    The moment he says this, my Wii totally locks up, preventing me from completing the game.

    I've tried the 4:3 setting trick (I always use widescreen) that helped with the Coach Z glitch in Ep. 1, that didn't work. I've tried Erasing and re-downloading the game again from the Wii shop channel, that didn't work. I've tried to skip through the cutscene fast by mashing the B trigger, and that didn't work.

    I've re-played the M&M game a good 6 times, hoping it would finally work, but it crashes each time in the same place.

    As you can imagine, I'm not happy at all. I've payed 10$ for a game I can't complete due to a major bug, and that's not right. So far I've loved the first 2 episodes and I want the other 3, but only If I can actually complete the games without bugs stopping me.

    Thanks,

    -Chris Coates

  • Exactly the same problem and also tried reinstalling but it still freezes my wii up. the bug has something to do with u sending that email to the king because after that the wii froze while i was trying to save. HELP!!!!!!
