Lock Up Bug, Very Frustrating

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, This is specifically to the developers, but if anyone else has experienced this issue, feel free to comment. First, let me say, I freaking LOVE this game. Definitely in my top 5 XBLA games ever. Problem is, I'm on mission 6 (can't remember the title now), and I've had the game lock up on me 5-6 times, to the point where I had to turn off my XBox and reboot. And, strangely, the checkpoints when I reboot the mission are significantly further back than where I was when the lock-up occurred. In other words, if I just died, I would just restart maybe one or two minutes prior to the point where I died, but if the game locks up, I start back seemingly halfway through the level. The flying crow checkpoints don't seem to be operative when this occurs. As you can imagine, it's annoying to have to redo 20 minutes or so of game time to get where you were. Strangely, any challenges, points, or scrolls I've ound still show up as found on reboot...small consolation. So, two questions:Is anyone else experiencing this issue and does anyone have any info on an upcoming patch? This is the only game that I am experiencing this with, so I don't think it's my system. And this issue may be the only thing that would prevent me from saying that this is, dare I say, a perfect game.BTW, I've never liked a stealth game in my life. In my mind this is THE stealth game. So you can see why I'm a little annoyed that the only thing marring the experience is a technical issue.Thanks!Mitch

Good afternoon Masterfaculty,I'm sorry to hear your having lock up issues. See if you can maybe try and remove the game completely from your console except for your game data and then re-download it. I had this issue with one or two XBLA titles in the past and this usually resolved the issue, also perhaps clearing your game cache could do it as well. Hope that perhaps this info proves useful friend.Best regards

First of all, thanks Klei for this great game ! I appreciate it a lot !But... unfortunately, I can't fully enjoy it. I experience the same "Lock Up Bugs" as explained by Masterfaculty. I've encountered this problem on almost every level of the game. Usually, it starts with a sound problem (mainly with the guard's voices, which become sometimes inaudible), then, about 10-15 seconds later, the game freezes. Sometimes, it starts with the use of the "sixth sense", and suddenly, some parts of the background become black, so you can't see anymore where you walk, and a moment after, the game freezes too.When I try to reload the game after a reboot, sometimes it goes back to a previous checkpoint, and sometimes I have to restart the level entirely (it just happened for me a few minutes ago on level one, when I was ready to distract the last two guards -> sound problem -> tried to go to the game menu -> freeze -> reboot -> no checkpoint left on level one...).My Xbox 360 is not really "new", and this is not the first game to freeze, but this is the first one to do it so much : Almost every level had to be done in multiple times, seperated from 1-2 freezes each time. I've tried the suggestions from gus.melendez83 above (clear cache, delete the game and re-download it), I even tried to disconnect and reconnect the hard drive, but nothing has changed, the same problems still occur.I really hope that this can be fixed.
