Title: Show stopping bug at the end of episode 2? (SPOILERS)
Post by: Borracho on January 29, 2013, 08:08:46 PM
Just a quick heads up, I've been playing the utterly brilliant Episode 2 (miles ahead of Ep. 1 in about every single department, full kudos to the dev team, but more feedback to follow soon :D) and at the very end, I do all the configurations and the quiz asks me whose organs are the spares.

Now I've used synergy and know the name, but the screen is completely non-responsive, I can't click on ANY of the names and I just stare at it like an idiot. Am I missing something? Should it be doing that? I'm playing the release version from GamersGate and that point makes no sense.

I want my closure :)

Any bright ideas?

I've had one other person mentioning running into this issue, have you tried the quiz more than once with these same results?

Yes, it seems to randomly bug. I loaded to the first screen multiple times due to me failing and sometimes none of the options would work from the get-go. Then three would work and then the other would be a no go. If I load my save from right before entering into the Lair and do it right all at once, it should work though, right?

Yeah that should work no problem for you. We'll keep trying to see if we can get this bug fixed too.

I can confirm this bug. It worked when I loaded save where I had just entered the Lair and I entered all of the answers straight away without exiting quiz screen.

My game got stuck on "continues on episode 3" screen. I had to shut down computer. I'm using Macintosh version.

I had the problem with alternatively, question 2 and the final question with the quiz. Nothing I did seemed to get past them when the game decided it didn't like me.   :-[

This is on the mac version as well.

No problem with the Quiz here... but the game did stop on the end-screen "Continues in Episode 3".. But I am on windows so could ALT+F4 my way out of there  :D

If you exit the game and reload from a save that's just before starting the tablet quiz (since you can't save once you start) you should be able to get through it just fine as long as you don't leave it. We're currently looking into the issue.

The problem for me was, that I COULD save in the middle of the quiz. When I reloaded that save the game got messed up. Guess that save button needs to be disabled correctly.

We're trying to replicate this, at a first test I'm not able to save after starting the quiz, can you tell me exactly what circumstances you went through to do this? Did you die during the quiz and retry, are you playing the game via WINE or a Steam overlay or anything like that, did you just click the computer icon and go into save normally?

Hmm, I'm not able to replicate it either. Hopefully this is bug rarely occurs then. I play on a PC with Win7 64-bit. Can't remember where in the sequence I saved.

I still got the weird save if that would be of any help?

Ah yeah, the problem is that you shouldn't be able to save during the quiz. It's supposed to be disabled automatically by the game logic. We don't actually track the quiz progress in a savegame, thus messing up your progress.
