I don't think this is quite the right place to post this but since I need to discuss a specific point in the game, this seems to be the only place it's allowed.

 

Spoiler

 

Unfortunately, I can't work out how to tell her to open the door. I can't interact with the door and I can't point her at it (I only get a hand icon on her, not an arrow).

 

Am I barking up the wrong tree, is there something non-obvious I need to do, or is this a bug?

Solution:

If you can't interact with the door, that's probably a bug, but be sure to get close to it.

Is there a bug reporting topic this thread can be moved to?

You can try to restart the game, see if that helps.

 

Otherwise I have a workaround for you, curtsey of another bug:

Lol, khh, I call that "thinking outside the box"... erm I mean "outside the room" ! ;)

Btw, from the screenshot I gather that the trigger for the blue swirly thingy to go through the door bugged out and that's why you can't interact with the door.

Hmm... that probably means the workaround won't work too.

 

Yeah, restarting the game or loading from an earlier save seems the best options.

I had this same bug last night. Going back to an earlier save solved the problem for me.

Actually, the bug workaround _did_ work for me. I assume the scripting on the other side doesn't check that condition.

 

I hadn't realised I was so close to the end. I thought "Oooh progress",,, "Oh" :)

 

Thanks for the help

id like to add that after you cross the room with the mom the first time. try talking to the mom until the conv. repeated.

 

if you still can't open the door after that, just intentionally get caught by the dad.

 

the second time you reach the mom's room, the mom will open the door...

 

i think the bug happened to me too. but i didn't really pay attention and just intentioanlly get caught. the 2nd time i was fine

I got 5 times discovered by Dad but it is still not working.

 

Why this bug will not get fixed? Now we have 2015 (including chapter 4) and i played a new game.

All right, that's strange. Is the bug indeed that the light swirl doesn't disappear when Saga*s near it?

 

(If it does, try to speak to Etta several times, if it doesn't, it's definitely a bug)

I get the feeling you're being overly harsh. Perhaps there is a bug. It happens. But, in order to fix a bug, the team has to be able to replicate it in their studio, so they can figure out what's going on.


If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.

It's a bug, I had it multiple times. My guess is that the light swirl triggers when Saga enters certain "triggering zone". When that happens, the swirl moves to the next stop (if I recall correctly, there are 3 stops: first outside Saga's room, next around the kitchen and the last one is in front of the door). The hand icon doesn't activates until the swirl is triggered for the last time, preventing it from trying to open the door.
It happened to me with the swirl outside Saga's room, it didn't move, no matter where I stood. The same happened multiple times with the last one. Like you said, it works fine when loading a previous save. However, it doesn't work if you load a save where the swirl is already bugged. I haven't tried again post-beta, so I don't know if something changed.

That sounds like the kind of specific info RTG might be able to use to track down a bug and fix it.

Sorry that you interprete this - i had no intention to be harsh.

 

Back to topic:

 

I tried now to restart the game. Then i have to get attention of "Mama" again. But still same result. There is no interaction symbol (Hand) or eye symbol at the door or door handle.

 

The light swirl stands in front of this door which i want to open (not after the kitchen).

 

What can i do now?

Have you tried loading an earlier save, from the start of the interlude for instance? If it's a random bug, it may not appear then.

Now i loaded the interlude start savepoint.

 

Yes, with this it worked - the swirl disappeared through the closed door - then the interaction hand appeared.

 

Thx for help.
