Title: I need to check with John about this message I got on my phone.
Post by: Krymson on November 03, 2012, 12:13:54 PM
I keep receiving this message whenever I try to interact with Sully or the elevator after completing the Goodman interrogation and returning to the station.

Post-interrogation I:
Received a text message on my phone
Used my computer to look up the person and case mentioned in the text
Spoke with John about the message
Returned to my computer to look up the name from the interrogation
Transferred the computer data to a portable device
Spoke with John about the name from the interrogation

John only seems to have the Case and Goodbye dialog options.
I fear I'm in a broken state, but I may be missing the obvious.

Have you tried using your phone on John?

I have.
I re-loaded my "interrogation" saved gave and this time spoke with John about Longmore before speaking to him about the phone call.
I was then able to speak to Sully as expected.

There's a pretty major bug with this, actually. If you do check with John about the message, then leave the police station, go to the apartment with Sully, then leave the apartment and return to the police station, Erica says 'I need to check with John about this message' AGAIN, and obviously since you've already done so, you can't check with him again. You then cannot leave the police station no matter what.

Yes, that's the same problem I encountered.

There are other times this 'repetition' bug creeps in
('Agent Davies' sending an email to someone in order to elicit a certain response for example)
but not in a game-breaking way.

Annoying bugs aside, I really enjoyed this episode.
