POST NUMBER 1

Anyone else suffering this?

 

On entering the academy from the ice plateau, am confronted by 3 handmaidens. But instead of automatically going to the confrontation with Atris, it skips it, Atton and Kreia are out of their cages but i cant talk to them, and cannot progress any further. On trying to talk to Atton, i get 2 options:

 

1. [cheat node] skip to PC conversation with Atris

2. [cheat node] talk to kreia

 

Choosing option 1 just take syou around in a loop of talking to Atris. Option 2 doesnt work at all.

POST NUMBER 2

Im getting one crash that doesnt let me proceed in the game... im playing a LS female. right after i finish the secret academy on telos and board the ebon hawk, there is a cut scene where t3 displays a holo of my trial and then he tells the location of the masters, and i say we should look for them to seek help, then the game fade-out and starts an auto-save. about a third of the way saving, the game crashes to desktop. i tried passing the save to my brothers pc, took the cds there and installed the game just for this, but the game crashes too at the exact same point. i tried loading one save i had from the restoration zone and doing everything up to that point, and it crashed again, same exact spot. i tried rebooting, reinstalling... nothing and nothing. funny thing, i managed to save the game right after i board the ebon hawk and before the cut scene begin, and when i tried to load that one it also crashed... but this time it is a different crash, where it stop loading when on one third of the way, but the game doesnt crash, it just stand still. if i press alt+f4, the game pops up a window asking me if i really wanna quit...

 

for what i read when looking for help about this, it might have something to do with visas, since when i escorted the annoying twilek from the base i got her cutscene...

 

as i see it, since im the only one that seems to have this crash, it might have something to do with my cds... so if i could send my save for someone and they would get over this point for me and send back the save, i would be imenselly gratefull... if u can do this for me, plz give me a PM with your email so i can send u the save. (is there a pm system in this forum?)

 

Edit: oh, and i tried turning auto save off and it still saves the game at that part...

 

---------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

I tried the patch (hehehe, The Patch!:rolleyes:) and it doesn't help. It sucks. It screws up the game at the Telos Academy. Use it at your own risk. I think they need to make a patch to fix The Patch

Anyone else encountered this?

I've just installed the patch cuz I'm planning on playing K2 in half a week or so but I'll rather reinstall the game and play it without the patch if the bug above occurs always.

 

I didn't encounter any major or disturbing bugs (like 2 heads on a character which ppl posted :ermm: ) so I consider myself lucky with the current hardware and graphic drivers I have (which I think is the main reason why I didn't get as many bugs as most of the ppl here do).

 

So I'd rather risk playing K2 without the patch and making Big Saves every planet, Checkpoint saves every map and smaller saves than playing normally but ending up stuck anyway - there's nothing worse than a bug which makes the game unwinnable.

This only happens if you choose "alright, we mean you no harm" as your answer when you get inside. If you choose something else and then agree to put down your weapons, it will not happen.

 

Edit: granted, this sucks, but it is avoidable.

I wonder Obsidian do they BETA TEST their Games  <_<

 

Unfortunate, NO

LA does all the work now...

Like "testing" the Movies/Music patch...

Come on, people, like WTF can screw high-quality up?

LA thinks that High-Quality Movies causes Telos Academy Cheat Nodes?

 

Appearently not, they just do there usual job there at LA QA:

Be ignorant to what the patch you got does

Don't install

Convince the boss that you beta test real hard (playing 1.00 cheated up)

release it after 2 months "intensive sleeping/testing" (first one real, other made up)

 

Find next mail with patch and repeat progress...

Yeah, I really don't understand why LA has to QA the next patch. It's just high quality movies/sound. Nothing big. If they don't release it within the next week, I'm going to show them where they can shove this game ;)

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

--John Stewart Mill--

 

"Victory was for those willing to fight and die. Intellectuals could theorize until they sucked their thumbs right off their hands, but in the real world, power still flowed from the barrel of a gun.....you could send in your bleeding-heart do-gooders, you could hold hands and pray and sing hootenanny songs and invoke the great gods CNN and BBC, but the only way to finally open the roads to the big-eyed babies was to show up with more guns."

I think the game works better without the patch. Since all my save games became corrupt files after installing it (I did manage to get a few hours in before file corruption prevented me from continuing), I uninstalled everything - save games and all - reinstalled the game, and did not d/l the patch. Runs fine now :thumbsup:

Just be happy that you got a patch, we still hadn't got one for xbox.

Dude I had that problem and I found that you should not freely give up your weapons the first time you meet the Handmaidens. Instead, ask the "why" question then the cutscene will run properly. Dude, I know your pain, I was stuck for a hour due tothis damn bug. Now, I am on Dantoiene and there are even more bugs. For some reason, my screen jumps ahead and then causes my character to freeze. It sucks! I hate all of these bugs! ANyway... goodluck!
