Well in keeping with my current unlucky streak, i have now had this game glitch on me. That makes 7 titles in a row, i feel special.

Obviously to describe this glitch i have to mention a few tiny spoilers. I will be as vague as possible, while still explaining what happens.

When you get to Fort Frollic you will be given a quest to take pictures of people for an artists masterpiece.

If you leave Fort Frollic before you finish, (for instance, taking the tram back to the medical station) your objective will be gone when you return. The arrow will still be there to show you where your next objective is, but it wont be there. Instead it will say " Unknown Object."

Luckily i had a backup save not too long prior to this part, so i didn't lose that much time, but had i not backed it up, i would have had to restart the game.

I've had a few things say "unkown object", but they were just vents frozen underneath the ice in the same area you're speaking of. There was also a frozen valve handle that was also unknown in that area.

yeah, its common, especially on things that were frozen and you melted the ice. In this scenario though, the object that gets glitched is your objective, the masterpiece, and you cant put the pictures up anymore.

ouch, thats sucks. I cant see why something like that would get past their QA testing.

Thanks for the heads up, that's a pretty fatal QA flaw there. I'm heading into my second playthrough.

Yeah in your first post you weren't very specific. I thought you meant the guys you had to kill, not posting the pictures on the boards. Well I never got the urge to leave during my mission, it even warns you if you haven't harvested or saved all the girls that you might need to or things will get a lot harder for you if you try to go ahead. Never went back either, though.

Yeah i was backtracking looking for stuff. You are correct that it warns you that it may get a lot harder if you dont get the little sisters, but at that point in the game you are blocked from moving forward to the next stop till you finish that quest anyway.

I'm trying to kill Finnigan - the guy frozen in the Poseidon tunnels. I can't find anybody in there. Earlier I melted and killed all the frozen people in the room in the frozen tunnel area. I have 3/4 photos on the masterpiece.

am I screwed here?

Wow I left there many time while doing cohen's masterpiece, and never had that glitch happen to me. Maybe it is just your game?

You can't have 3 of the 4 pictures if you haven't killed him yet. Unless you actually skipped him, melted the ice, went through the second tunnel and killed all of them (targets 2, 3 and 4) first. Which in that case, I have no idea what was going through your head :p You may be screwed.

Don't start shit, Maka. You know better than that. I know I'm new to being a mod around here, but that's a warning in my book.
