View Full Version : Glitches to be aware of...

01-28-2013, 03:18 PM
I've been following the various helpful guides on here in my 2nd playthrough hoping to finish up achievements I didn't get first time round and have just realized that I have triggered a glitch; when I entered the hardware store the first time, I only collected the lightbulb and the shotgun, entirely missing the key in the till which unlocks the door into the back room, where you can move a box and obtain the painting "Hope". I returned there later on to try and get the painting, and although it's there, I can't pick it up. :(

Apparently others have experienced a problem where they have taken the key, unlocked the storage room and not taken the painting, only to return later to collect it and find the door locked again and no key (keys disappear once used). Can't confirm this for myself, but basic solution is just make sure to pick up that painting first time round.

If anyone could give me a solution to how I can complete the Art Collector side quest now without having to do this all again I'd be really appreciative, but I'm not hopeful. I didn't want to resort to it because it felt "cleaner" to do it properly, but I might just be glitching the SHHS achievement (see here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=368087)) instead.

If anyone has any other glitches to warn others about, please feel free to add to the thread.

The one and only bug I've noticed is the "Digging Up the Past" side quest being available before a second playthrough; could be linked VIA gamer profile/achievements rather than system data, but I don't know for sure.

Ok, this was a weird one for me. I was going for the Useless Trinkets achievement on my second playthrough. None of the candles on the barrels by the dig sites were lit, and although I could dig the items up; they were all invisible. Murphy always did the action to pick them up, so I assumed all was well. NOPE! Got all the 7 items in this way, but no Useless Trinkets achievement. I carried on playing through(because this was my mop-up run) in the vain hope I could use the USB save method to get the E ending to avoid another playthrough. NOPE!
Anyway, I started a third playthrough (why does this game not have the option to skip cut-scenes!Grrr!) and went to each of the sites as quickly as I could(having to do certain story points to open up more areas). At the first site the candles were not lit, again, and again I could dig, I could pick up an item - but it never showed on the screen. However, this time - it showed on the screen that I had started this side-quest and had 1 of 7 items.And each time I got one the counter went up, until the achievement popped. So, I carried right onto the end of the game and luckily the E ending unlocked - but i was in cold sweats all the way through the last cut scenes.
I realise the game has been out for ages now and not many people play this now, but I hope this proves that despite this nasty glitch, you can still get all the achievements.
