Lionhead has revealed a list of details on what changes/fixes the upcoming patch for Fable II will make. The patch is almost finished, but is currently being tested and finalized, although it should be released soon.
The T.O.B.Y. quest woes drove me batty, glad this stuff is getting fixed - gotta love "Your child - will no longer be chosen as an assassination target" ;) ah, good times...
I have not connected and played with anyone else online..
after spending hours on fable2 got stuck, and is still stuck in the room at the beginning of the hero of skill quest. does this mean the patch will fix it for her, or will she have to do it all again? bless her, i've tried loads of things to get her into gaming, and when she finally starts showing an interest. blam after 30+ hours on a game, she gets a terrible game breaking glitch. i love fable2, but it's a disgrace that games should launch with such bugs. i've completed it, and i did'nt encounter one bug. just the missus i'm afraid.
kewlkat- it's a bug with the T.O.B.Y. quest that keeps you from progressing. Obviously the bug doesn't happen for everyone just like that is the only one of those bugs listed that happened for me. @pathetic fanboys: that's one of the bug fixes listed, so she should be fine to fire up the game again
I can not stay online, keeps disconnecting me after about 5 minutes. I have tried it with friends only orbs on, all orbs on. My son has no problem at all when he logs in with his gamer tag. Anyone else have this problem?
I must have been lucky cause I haven't encountered any bugs(unless you count the red/blue ones) at all. I'm past the Spire. It runs great from the hdd.
I love fable2, I'm playing it in chunks in between sessions of Left 4 Dead (amazing online), Lich King (very nice), Mirrors Edge (also very nice) and Red Alert 3 (I'm also loving this). (this message got alot of text in brackets for some reason)
iv already swapped mine for LBP because of the bloodstone glitch,i don't think i will buy it again because it shows devs can get away with releasing an unfinished game
I don't think they care, they already got your money. But game breaking glitches are horrible so I understand your frustration, luckily I have not come across any myself.
I mean you get away with your unfinished movies. :)
why have i got disagrees for stating a fact, xbots cant accept the truth, i had to after losing 20 hours worth of game time.
How do you know its only xbox users who are giving you disagrees..very close minded to pent a set of people up, just cause someone out there does not agree with you.
Because its an xbox exclusive and therefore people with xboxs will read this story, its an xbox exclusive. Why would someone disagree with me unless they didn't like that i was saying something bad about the game.
Couldn't be the fact that this is the internet so any ones opinion or anything for that matter receives negative vibes.
Just started this. First RPG in decades! I find the movement/control a little, shall I say, off? Kind of like steering a big car vs. a small one. I'm use to razor sharp controls I guess. Not a huge detriment, just have to get used to it a bit.
The character runs kind of floaty, but when fighting I think the controls are spot on.
I didn't experience any of the major problems or quest related problems, but it's nice to have a patch and see that LionHead cares. :) Bravo
I loved the game, but I also wasted nearly 30 hours of gameplay due to a game breaking 'corrupt save file' glitch that makes the game freeze on the title screen and the only way to resolve the issue is dump your save, then start anew. Needless to say, I will not be buying it again, patch or not.
I rather enjoy this game..The slow-mo fighting sequences are made of pure win.
Anyone know if there's a full list of fixes anywhere? There's a few bugs that really annoyed me which are not listed. (Such as moving the missus in to a new house and not being able to rent out or sell the old place - which seemed to hit a lot of people). It's a shame that Lionhead has taken so long to fix the Abbot glitch - I would have expected a bug like that to be hot fixed very quickly. In fact, it's pretty disgusting that a AAA 1st party exclusive title could launch with so many bugs, and what makes it worse is the 'tough sh!t attitude of Lionhead'. Definitely soured my experience with a good game. I finished it a while back - but recently started a second run through, but may now wait until the patch goes live.
Other then the furniture store thing I have not noticed any of those glitches. I did just get to bloodstone though. I did finish the TOBY and the Ghost Pirate quest without issues, but the bloodstone gamemaster did try to shoot me for no apparent reason. I hope I don't need him for anything, because he didnt quite make it.
