Records glitch

has anyone else had the records glitch? by this i mean that whenever i try to look at my records to see which endings, titles, etc i have obtained, the game just freezes. i have to turn off the xbox in order to do anything. not sure when it started or how it happened cause i havent checked the records too often.

is there any sort of work around that i can use to see which endings and other stuff i have? i'd rather not start over because i'm pretty far into it with many of the endings done.

if there isnt a workaround, has anyone had this happen to them and does it affect achievements for the endings and titles?

EDIT: seems it does not affect the achievements as I got the 20 titles achievement last night. it just makes it more of a pain in the ass to keep track of what you do and do not have.

I have this! I thought it was because my xbox ringed the disc. and I hadn't noticed till I got my game back. I've put a lot of time into the game and have stopped playing while i wonder what to do. Is there help for us?

Yea, i have only seen a couple of other people talking about it and that was on the gamefaqs forum. no mention anywhere else of it anywhere else. guess the fact that this game isnt widely distributed doesnt help.

I know why mine is doing the screen lock up on the "Records" menu.

I have these 2 crafted swords. I got Bloodthirsty, LV 50 on them, so they are 3 starred wih 1000+ kills, and 202/199 att respectively. Game started locking up on Records menu when I got the 3rd star for Lv 50. if I delete them from my weapon safes (discard them), then I can look at my Records menu with no problem.

I think it has something to do with the "Favorite Weapon" line in the main menu of Records. It doesn't like my crafted swords, which I think are my current favorites, or rather the game freaks out trying to decide if they are favorites or not. All I know is, if I get rid of them, then records page works with no problem.

Do you have a lv Bloodthirsty weapon? One or Two? or More?

To confirm Garibaldi,

I tried deleting my custom sword I forged and viewing records afterwards and I was able to view them. It seems the problem has something to do with having forged swords or something to do with them...

I can verify this 'fix' as well. My game was consistently freezing on the Records page. I deleted all four of my forged swords and the freezing is now fixed.

Bummer to lose some nice blades, but it's worth it to keep track of endings/titles.

Well I have some good news and smoe bad news. For the last couple of days, I've been tinkering around with this Records bug and I discovered 2 things.

First: Favorite Weapon status has nothing to do with weapon level or kill count. It seems to be base more on how ofter you use it (otherwords have it drawn in attack mode) and/or how many games you used the weapon to complete. This was very interesting, cause when I discarded those 2 bugged weapons, the game said Oorunama was my favorite. It was a 3 starred weapon with about 550 kills. Problem was, I had 4 other lv 50 weapons that had more kills, and "You're My Hoe" sword had 1525 kills. So that clued me in, that kill count is irrevelant.

Second: I figured out a fix for the Records bug without having to delete your prized forged weapons. The trick is to make another weapon your "Favorite Weapon" as far as Records is concerned. Since Oorunama seemed to be my 3rd favorite weapon (after the 2 bugged ones), I simple used it to get my remaining 26 titles. And for those titles that require you to wait an hour before completion, I stood around in my cabin with it drawn infront of Osada or Yukino or Hinagiku (who seem to say nice things to you when you wipe out the big blade). This seemed to do the trick, and I can now view Records without locking up, and I still have all my forged weapons(8 crafted), including the 2 Bloodthirsty's that cause the initial problem.

Now for the bad news. I am still not 100% sure what the root cause of the bug is. I don't know if it was because a crafted weapon was trying to be "Favorite Weapon", or if it was that I had 2 weapons that were both being labeled as favorite (as I used those 2 bloodthirsty's exclusively for dual wielding, so they had the same amout of "favorite" points).

If you already deleted your swords.. I'm sorry I hadn't figured it out sooner, you might still have them.

I got this today after killing Shuzen on the 15th day after just lazying around, doing jobs. I got this recently and haven't played much, only got two endings, this one being the second. I was going to check the records to see which one, but then it froze... I'd picked up Shuzen's sword and thought it was the problem, but seems it wasn't.

I don't see myself having any problem with favorite weapons, as aside from a sword I used on my first playthrough (that only got 88 kills) before crafting a sword, I have barely used any other ones. I don't think I've done anything out of the ordinary, aside from maybe eating other things and wearing some more accessories. I'll try hurling out some of my more recently-acquired swords, but man, this bug is quite annoying...
