The other day I got down on the ground to eat my lunch because I felt bad leaving Amelia all alone. This was what I like to call “a bad idea”…..here’s why:
A friend of mine on facebook posted this on a comment of mine, and I had to share it.
It’s lengthy…but actually quite funny. Made me want to go play some Halo….
So here’s an update on my Far Cry 2 adventures regarding the glitch where you buddy kills you after saving you. I tried deleting all my old saves except for the most recent one (which was of my second play-through)….no joy. I also tried deleting the profile with no luck. The only thing that resolved my issue in the end was deleting everything, saves and profile, and starting over from scratch.
So I’m assuming, with my limited knowledge of file structure, that the profile (or a globally linked sub file) is the source of all this trouble. I guess the reason this isn’t resolved already is because the variable that represents the buddy’s attitude towards you is probably boolean, and can’t easy be retrofitted to accommodate for the ending of the game turning the buddies against you.
Oh well….maybe if the blizzard comes tomorrow I can stay home from work and play all day
So for the past few days, whenever I play Far Cry 2 on our PS3 and die my rescue buddy shows up….drags me off a ways, and then proceeds to kill me until I die from it. Also earlier today when a buddy got wounded during a mission (not a rescue buddy) the only option I had was to pump a round into her head even though I had syrettes.
Turns out this bug seems to have been out there for a while, and only happens after you beat the game and play it for the second time. Even though you are using a different save and character.
There is a point in the game where you will do battle with some buddies, and apparently the programmers used a global parameter to store how a buddy acts towards you (aggressive vs. assistive). So by doing battle with the buddies near the end of the game, for the rest of gameplay….EVEN with a new save file and character…the buddy considers you a traitor and will open up a can of whoop ass even after saving you.
So there ya have it…kind of a crappy bug to run into. I’m gonig to try erasing all my saves except for one (the one for the new character) in hopes this will clear the problem. Otherwise I think the only thing to do is wipe them all and start over again. Especially since Ubisoft doesn’t seem to have any clue as to how to fix this
So first off let’s start with a few really cute pictures of Amelia in her high chair after eating a few food cubes.
And here she is just making the silliest face possible, had to post it:
Lately Connor has been a real nightmare with eating at the table…playing with his feet, pushing the chair/table back, dropping his cup. So we borrowed a table chair from Colin’s parents and decided to buy our own once we tried it. It arrived last night, but we didn’t get to try it until today at lunch. He did pretty well and the pictures turned out cute so…..
That is the main phone number that shows up when somebody uses a specific type of international phone card.
It is also the number of some complete chum bucket waste of life who thinks that I must be a fat american moron. No Bob, I’m sorry that you don’t have a database of people who are in debt and need your help because I am not in any debt at all. No the police won’t come and arrest me first thing tomorrow morning because I owe some mythical company an unpaid balance. Of course since it was the kids nap time I cut the idiot off and told him he was full of shit and I didn’t have time for his scams…probably right before he would have suggested I Western Union him the money necessary to stop the “police” from coming to get me.
Isn’t it great that as a world we’re so connected that you don’t even have to leave your home to get scammed? What’s next, homeless people squatting on the upper left hand corner of webpages?
