Game freezing on Chapter 3 - Dexter's Office
« on: December 15, 2014, 06:10:00 AM »
Hello,

I need some help. I'm playing Moebius on Mac OS 10.8.5, 1.8 GHz Intel Core i5, 4GB Mem. I'm now stuck in Dexter's Office. He is about to explain to Malachi what FITA is (Walker and that other guy have just left the room) but nothing happens. He is still animated (blinking, nodding) but there's no other interaction. His exact words were "I'm going to answer your questions... I hope I'm not wrong to trust you" or something like that and then nothing.

Also, in an earlier scene, when Walker leaves his room to meet up with Gretchen, Malachi's apartment is a blank (I've attached a screenshot).

In Venice, I was able to take the boat paddle and murano necklace twice. I already gave that necklace to that old lady but I was still able to get another one at the shop even though it wasn't in the glass case. There was still a data point and the object was added to my inventory. Same with the boat paddle.

Thanks in advance!

Jeff

I had exactly the same glitches (the conversation with Dexter stopping at the same moment and the "dark room with a coat" one), but I'm playing the PC version on Windows 8.1.

The processor is an AMD Phenom II X4 960T 3.00 GHz, the graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 6870.

If you need further information, just say it!

Sorry, reading my comment now it gives the idea that I've solved it. But no, haven't found a solution yet  :(

I got a response from tech support. Apparently, they are aware of both issues and are working on a patch. They've asked me to submit the last save file and I guess they'll me send a temporary fix. I'll keep you posted.

Hello Jluiz, they've sent me sav file which I've attached here. It will basically move you to the next chapter. You need to watch what you will have skipped: http://youtu.be/-vUDmBgiOXQ?t=12m1s

The bad news is I'm now stuck again with a similar glitch in the Zurich chapter. I've learned to save every after dialogue and scene as a check point. There are plenty more glitches which seem to be a result of not following a particular order of interactions.

Hi all,

I'm also stuck at the same spot at the end of Chapter 3, and saw the glitches in Rector's condo (not the necklace or the boat hook in Venice though).

I watched the Youtube recording of the final scene in Chapter 3. There is one difference I noticed, when I played, Walker levitated towards the door to exit the office, but he didn't seem to do that in the Youtube video. 

I'll try the .sav file and skip over to chapter 4.

Thanks for sharing this, much appreciated,

Adelus

Hello all,

Having experienced all of the issues mentioned above, I have yet another freeze point to report: Senator Markham's office after selecting the 'Helene email' dialogue option.  It's the same behavior noted in Dexter's office and Karl's library: playability ceasing after attempting a conversation choice.  Unfortunately, the save files provided in the tech support thread don't extend this far into the story.  I've kind of had it using them anyway and eagerly await the patch.  I assume it will address all these moments in the game, since the situations and accompanying error are all of a type.

I can't say I'm impressed with these bugs in a for-profit product, but I have enjoyed Moebius and look forward to beginning again after the fix.
