View Full Version : What happened to my dynamite?

04-09-2008, 09:00 PM
So, I've got a problem. In episode 5, where you need to retrieve the dynamite and blow the door, I seem to have hit a glitch. My first time through, I went, got the dynamite, and would run every few steps, so by the end of the dark territory, my dynamite was rumbling. No biggie. Then, I think I messed something up, cause the black smoke came after me right at the last one, and I ran into the tree. It seems that the dynamite blew up right as I hit the tree (my controller rumbled as I entered the tree), and it went into the cinematic for hiding from the black smoke. I then hit the next flag and got to the hatch. The only problem is that once I hit the next area (the hatch area), I didn't have the dynamite anymore. I guess the game thought I blew up before I hit the tree, but since I didn't die (cause it must have been so exact), I ended up at the hatch without the dynamite.

Bummer, but not really a big deal, right?

Fast forward to yesterday. (This part won't make much sense) I fire up the game, and decide to try again. I start to go back, when I realize I seemed to be missing some stuff (not sure why I thought this), so I try doing the "Play Episode" right from the main menu instead of continuing. I ended being even further back, but decided to just beat it right there. And I did. Got the dynamite, got it back, blew the door, played on the computer, and bam, episode is finished. But then it brings me back to the title screen. LAME! I guess you can't just go "Play Episode" to beat an episode you haven't beaten (at least not to go to the next episodes, but I still got the achievements).

Now we are at today, and I go continue. What the hell, I'll do the dynamite thing for a THIRD TIME. Urgh. But whatever, it will be done and I can finish this. WRONG! I work my way through the dark territory, get to the Black Pearl, AND THERE IS NO DYNAMITE! It is not there, I don't have it, and the hatch door is still barred closed.

What the hell do I do now? How do I beat this game without restarting right from the beginning???

This seems to be exactly my problem: http://www.gamespot.com/pc/adventure/lost/show_msgs.php?topic_id=m-1-41670089&pid=933473

I'm thinking this is a bug, and that there really isn't anything I can do about it. I'm hoping to get a confirmation, but if I don't, then I guess I am starting over tonight.


Any ideas, anything at all, would be greatly appreciated.

For anyone that comes to this after the fact, I did indeed have to completely restart my game from scratch. It wasn't that bad. Since I had all the Achievements already and really didn't care about the story at that point, I breezed through the first half in under an hour. Wasn't nearly as bad as I had anticipated.

I'm going on the assumption that you've never seen the show?

I was wondering if anybody else had this happen to them. I had the exact same problem to a tee what you described. Thankfully you said it wasn't as bad as you thought so I will take your word for it and restart. I really don't want to though :(
