Hangman's Hymn and Emperor's Abyss bugged[Xbox360]

Recommended Posts

Yesterday i started playing this so far brilliant game and i made it to level 3,to a part where one has acess to its first upgrades.

I purchased Hangman's Hymn and Emperors Abyss and decided to quit for the night(had to work very early in the morning).

When i resumed playing today,i was at the checkpoint right before the "upgrade shrine",and so i made my way there only to find out that i had already purchased the upgrades(the game saved before quitting).

The problem is,i cant do either of those moves(skills),yet i can do the ones i bought recently(the bat kill for example) as i am currently on level 5.

Anyone else encountered this problem?Any advice on how to fix it?

No one had any issue like this?

Im still trying to decide whether or not i should just erase the save game and start from the begining of the game,or wait for someone to acknowlege this bug and either try to help me fix it or just say: "Sorry,it is a bug,you must restart from the begining,since a patch for the xbla version is not in our plans".

Or even a provide me with a game save that allows me to start from level 5 with everything i had done(basically: all medals,undected,every perfect stealth kill,etc in the previous 4 levels.

This is the first time I have head of this issue.

Is this happening to you every time you play, or just the one time?

It is happening since i started playing,until now.So,its been more than 2 days.

Even though the skills are checked as "upgraded/purchased",it is impossible to do them,just like one has never bought/upgraded them.

Restarting levels,checkpoints,passing levels-nothing works.

Ok, this is a long shot, but can you do me a favor and Go into steam library, from there right click on Mark of the Ninja in the game list and choose "properties". In there, click on the "Local Files" tab and choose "verify integrity of game cache"

Let me know if it reports anything as corrupted and downloads any files.

Yeah, sorry about that, I missed it.

Unfortunately this is not an issue we have seen before and we aren't aware of any general fixes that might correct your issue. We have somebody on your issue right now trying to reproduce the issue.

However, regardless of his findings, we won't be able to patch the game just for that issue. At this point our thoughts are that perhaps your game wasn't saved correctly and as a result the savegame became corrupted. OR, perhaps you may be attempting to use these abilities incorrectly.

Can you describe how you are trying to use these abilities? What do you see and how are you positioned on the screen?

Unfortunately, the only other thing we can suggest at this time, is to delete your savegame.

The abilities are being done to the letter( i have even consulted a youtube video).

Hangman's Hymn: I tested it several ways,several times,the most recent was done over a guard that was stationed below a hanging point,which i descended using the "hook and rope" and trying to press X as i was next to him(not even a butom prompt appeared).

Basically i have followed to the letter,everything as this video shows:

Additionally,if you want,i can send you my save file for you to confirm the veracity of the situation.

Ok, well. If you have the ability to send that to us, that would help us try to see what is going on. However, I have to make sure you are aware, it is very unlikely that it will give us the ability to correct your issue. But, it certainly will help give us an idea about how it may have happened, so if we ever were to patch again in the future, we may have a resolution to the cause of the issue.

As promised,here is my save file,copied from my Xbox360 HDD,compressed with winrar and stored on my cloud host:

If by any chance,you manage to "fix it",i would be greatly apreciated.

Just a small question: has anyone verified my game save,or should i send it via another way(e-mail for example).

I just want confirmation that this bug indeed exists,and that i am not here just to bother the team(which i have the utmost respect).

I grabbed the file, and will try to find some time to take a quick look at it later today. I'll let you know if I find anything.

Solved it!

I selected the third level(replayed it) and now it lets me do the hangman's hymn on any level.

Haven't tried Emperor's Abyss though,but i assume it will work out just fine.
