Technolust Update: Bugs

ZenbaneZenbane Posts: 8,218 Power Poster
If anyone encounters any Bugs with the new Technolust Touch update, feel free to share them here.

I just got out of the Subway and walked up to the first Terminal that broadcasts the Ad for Needful Things. This terminal is in front of an area where a large craft flies up in to the sky the moment you arrive.

After walking forward a bit I fell through the game World, and this is all I see:

    I have beaten the game with one ending, and I noticed a few non-game breaking glitches:

    1) After connecting to the memories of one Robot (I think it was the one standing outside Needful Things), the voice of the dude who runs the Wreck room tells me something about the Wastelands. I'm not sure I ever got to discover his meaning, however, his dialogue kept replaying each and every time the Chinatown map loaded.

    2) Similar, many times when re-entering Chinatown, the same spaceship would launch, and the same dog would run by. Seems like a glitch.

    3) Once I became the Catalyst, I was able to clear out the Club and see the game-ending credits. However, the game isn't really over, since I still need to talk to the Cyborg lady to make my final game-ending decision. This made the ending a bit confusing since nothing prevents me from "freeing everyone" as the Catalyst; e.g., shouldn't I need to talk to Cyborg chic first before I use my powers? If not, why does the game end after making a plot choice without letting me finish freeing everyone?

    This is great fun, and I look forward to multiple playthroughs to test various endings.

    I finished it last night. I had the same issue with the Wreck Room guy talking about the Wastelands. I couldn't find what he was referring to either. But... the memories of the Needful Things robot said something about meeting another robot "beneath the lights" in the wastelands. So I assume that's what is being referred to. I only found one robot in the Wastelands, though. And I interacted with it it before doing so with the one outside Needful Things. And when I go back to the robot in the Wastelands, nothing progresses. So... either it doesn't work properly if you talk to them out of order, or there's another robot in the wastelands that I couldn't find (or there is supposed to be, but it isn't). I will replay the game at some stage and see if interacting with them in order gets it to progress properly.

    Oh... and at least I assume I've finished the game. I became the catalyst and cleared out the club and saw the credits on the monitor. I'm not sure what "game ending decision" refers to though. @Zenbane - are you referring to the cyborg/robot at the morgue who sent you to the club. I did return to her and "free her". I don't recall a decision - though maybe I just wasn't paying close enough attention. And I'm still able to run around the game, "freeing" others.

    No I'm talking about the girl, Amnesty, or however it is spelled. She becomes a cyborg thing, but a lot of how that should play out was a bit confusing.

    I need to Clear Data and try again!

    Oh!!! Ok, her. Yeah, I never found her. I knew she said to find her in the Red Pill, but I didn't find her there. I'll have to go back and look again. :)

    The first time you meet her is before you go to Mars. But it involves jacking into a robot.

    To clarify, I meant I never found her on Mars. Yeah - she spoke to meon screen a few times and saw her "physical" self via the robot's memories in the bunker. But I didn't find her in the bar on Mars (either I didn't look too well or... a bug?)

    No you have to go back to the bunker and she is still in there. And then she asks you to choose to side with her instead and gives you different instructions.

    Is this a bug? When you go out to the Mars surface and everything turns yellow and you hear from Orion (?), on my first playing of the game, I thought it then took you back inside the base, but now on my current playthrough I seem to be stuck outside forever. The door to the base will no longer open.

    Oh wow. Another bug then!

    Yes it should port you back in automatically.

    Has this been resolved / is there a workaround? I'd really like to complete the game...

    Just bought the game and when I start the game it takes me straight to the credits.  I cant leave them and they keep repeating.

    The game does start with the credits rolling. But I think you just hit any button and it takes you to the start of the game. Are you using the Xbox controller or Touch?

    I recently beat the game again (one full playthrough), and I encountered zero bugs. I'm going to try to beat it again with the current saved game (beating it once changes certain things to allow for multiple playthroughs). I'll update this thread if I encounter any issues.

    Pardon the bump, but I'm having a hard time finding info on a save game issue.  Each time I load the game it starts at the intro.  I shared this info in a steam thread, granted I am playing the Oculus store version.
    It looks like my save file has a modified date last from Tuesday the 15th, despite my playing later in the week and saving at payphones (and seeing it say saved on the map).
    C:\Users\[username]\AppData\LocalLow\IRIS VIRTUAL REALITY\Technolust 0_9_9_9
    is where my save file is with a name of "save.txt". Viewing it seems to be largely plain-text. I'll move it and see if the game making a new copy resolves the save issue.

    The contents of my save file look accurate with areas I have been, but I'm confused why it fails to load. It's almost like there is a borked character in the save file or something. Here is line 01:
    ý~Hilltop Score string

    There are some registry values too. These appear to match from my game play.
    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IRIS VIRTUAL REALITY\Technolust 0.9.9.9
    I was curious if anyone else was having a save issue with the game.
    Thank you.

    Edit: Fix to stop intro loop:
    I moved the flat save file and let the game make a new one.  New file does not have the ý at the start of file.  In-game saving also worked after doing this.  Registry still has my high scores from the arcade.  Game loads to teleport MURC menu instead of intro now :)
