Song of the Maiden Bug

Post by spacemanspork »

I'm on the final mission. I opened the final door and I see Yadis and a bunch of people and nothing happens.

I just sit there and look at these people. I can't approach them because the map doesn't allow it. They don't notice me. In fact the first time I got here the entire area was empty of people. So I reloaded and when it reloaded, the people appeared, but did what you see in the screen shot. Just sat around chanting while ignoring me and the map won't let me move beyond the boundary.

I even reloaded it to 5 minutes prior and had to solve the stupid gear puzzle again and the same thing happens. I'm pretty sure something is supposed to trigger, but nope.

It looks like I'm just stuck right before the final battle.

Not good....

You should be able to approach, which then triggers a cut-scene that ends with initiation of combat.

You will need to send your save file to inXile support for this.

Thanks for the response! You have any idea how I do this (send a save file to inxile support)?

I figured it was a bug because it's weird just to have a group of people ignore me.

Hey has this been fixed?? Im literally at the final boss fight of an awesome game that I suffered through hours of crashing and bugs for, because it was that cool. And here I am, staring at Yadis' back unfulfilled as ever.
