Angry stuck help please! strange glitch

I'm stuck on the escort stage, as conrad and mia approach the core room with the 4 consoles in . Mia approaches the door and automatically spawns on the other side with no animations or unlocking the door? thus I am stuck in a small section and cannot get into the core room. is anyone else having this problem? I have loaded up my autosave and last saves to see if this can be prevented but it is happening everytime and is driving me mad!

There should be a panel on that door. If you haven't looked see if you can access it.

tried that, but thanks for trying. when mia approaches the door she stops for a second then just appears on the otherside? then i get a message saying that I need to turn on the 4 consoles. but that damned door wont open! all I hear is access restricted. I tried reloading saves and even re downloading the game, nothing seems to make a difference.

Thats really messed. What about if you try reloading the auto save? Is the door blue or green? If its green then that is totally messed up. Maybe run around that room to kill any stragglers. Probably a bad save state(s). Sucky.

Thumbs down Level 3 Escort glitch

I too am having the exact same problem myself. Once she phases through the door you are locked into that hallway with no way out. I have tried reloading saved games and autosave with no luck. I even shot the windows out to the mainframe core room and killed the two aliens inside the room with her by shooting through the window openings and the door is still locked. Hopefully Team 17 will fix this glitch soon.

theres no way round it atm other than to start a new game I had to start again on elite. I think I know what causes the problem though, from the start of the level as you progress you will come to junctions surrounding the core room where cut scenes should show the doors locking.

on the playthrough where this glitch occured to me there was a point where there was no cutscene and I was able to enter the core room at an early stage of the level and collect all the ammo and medkits. I think this is what is causing the error to happen? if your lucky enough to have a save at the start of escort you may be able to prevent the glitch by not entering the core until you are actually escorting Mia.

Yeah I too was able to enter the core room early and also collected the ammo and med kits so that may be what caused this glitch because I also saw no cutscene with the doors locking. I will try your method as soon as I can and post the results here. Thanks for the tips.

Agh! I wasted my entire afternoon with this, went back to all my previous save states and shadowed Mia as close as possible, never a cut-scene, ugh. She just kept ending up on the other side of the door, no way to join her. I guess I have to start over since all my save states are past the point where the glitch got kicked off?

Or does anybody have a solution? You think Team 17 will release a patch? And if so, will we have to restart the game? Ugh.

I was really enjoying this game, more than any I can remember in recent times. grrrr.

Anybody know of any similar games, I mean the isometric overhead view where you don't have to look up and down? I already finished the new Lara Croft, it's AWESOME.

if you don't have a save from the start of escort, you will have to restart the game as much as it sucks. I spent hours trying different methods to bypass the glitch with no success, and had to restart on elite. all I can say is stay out of the core room until you are escorting mia, and lets hope team17 fix this quick as it is ruining a brilliant game for a minority of unlucky gamers.

Do you think they're even aware of it? And does it matter what level of difficulty you start with? You said Elite there, I usually play the easiest possible ;-)

OK after almost 4 hours of my life I'm past it ;-) Started over, kept a saved game at the end of the previous chapter. I stuck as near to Mia as possible, only straying when I had to, and returning asap. As a result I was constantly low on ammo (most of the time I had none at all.)

**SPOILER ALERT**

What happens after you do activate the 4 things though, is quite difficult. Run like heck :-)

I've just had a glitch on the same Escoty mission. It was when I got to the bit where we finally reunite, and I have to escort her to the mainframe. However, she wouldn't move. I tried bumping into her and clearing all aliens away, but there was nothing that would make her move.

So I killed her, giving me a failed mission, but it restarted at a checkpoint, and fortunetly, worked all ok next time round.

Hope I don't get any further glitches. What a crappy mission. I've really been enjoying the game, but this level is awful. One of the worst escort levels in any game.

I've had both glitches...

Unfortunately for me, Mia has frozen by the door and won't progress any further. I hit her. Shoot her. She just just complains. I reload a checkpoint, and she's moving again... yay!

Then I get to that bloody door that leads to the mainframe room, and she magically transports quickly through the door. I'm stuck. I've tried reloads, but she performs the same magic trick.

So I think you're on to something when you suggest that earlier in the level while exploring every nook and cranny, I went into the main frame room, just thinking it was ok.

At least, I'm only playing through for the 1st time, and I'm on Rookie. But it's baloney that I have to play the whole game already. There goes 5 hours wasted.

Since there is no guide for the collectibles, I was being very thorough while enjoying searching everywhere, thinking it would be worth my time.
Not the 2nd time around.
Urgh!

Confirm...

So I started over from the beginning.

When I arrived to the escort stage, I made sure not to enter the mainframe room or even walk close to the doors the are showed locking during quick cut scenes.

Sure enough, once I escorted Mia to the room, she opened it for me and led the way.

I hope you that start this game from scratch read up on this glitch. It took another 3 hrs to get back where I was.

My game glitched and had a corrupted save 2 levels in. Then when I went to start a new game it wouldn't recognise my hard drive. I deleted and redownloaded it and it still won't recognise my hard drive. I have now just deleted the game and moved on to part 3. Very dissapointed.

In case anyone else picked this game up in the sale that's going on right now, I took a pic of the room that might glitch:



There's three rooms that look exactly like this (with various degrees of decay), a T-shaped little room with a big door to the north of where my character is facing. The door to the north (not in the picture, I screwed up a little lol) is the room you shouldn't enter, it'll say "CORE" on the ground by the door. The first one of these T-shaped rooms is mandatory and you find a keycard in there, but I think the other two are "bonus rooms" with just items/ammo in them.

If you've already played Episode 1, you'll recognize this "CORE" room from the last level, and you'll probably wonder why the hell you'd need to activate the mainframe again when your character just did that like half an hour ago.
