Re: Major, rare visual bug

It always begins when loading from a save but the save does not cause the bug; moreover, loading a different save keeps the bug. The only way to fix it is to restart the game.

Whatever is happening, it's something that's loaded with the game and not reloaded until the game is restarted.

Re: Your favorite Consortium character?

Taryn has a mask on I think. The only time she took it off, in my opinion, is when you tell Steve MacKai off then go to the VT or bed. She wants to talk about Steve but you can redirect her to *something personal.* I would describe the "mask" as "professionalism." She's 100% committed to the mission...

Re: Bathroom Morse Code

Note how the light flashing isn't consistent with the sound and how the sound itself can only do dits if it is immediately followed by the dah. Maybe the sound is all dahs and the light state is all dits? Or maybe it's every other word (light, sound, light, sound, light sound, etc.) Problem is that,...

Bathroom Morse Code

Gregory MacMartin hinted at it, I recorded it, I tried to decode it, but I come up with "TWKTTWTAAAT" which makes no sense.

Re: Game Breaking Bug: Not picking up BUS before Kiril only leads to failure

Yay! That's the only game breaking bug I found that can't be fixed by loading a recent save. How did you address it, if you don't mind telling? Does it just automatically equip the BUS? Or did you fix the traitor weirdness? If you fixed the traitor weirdness, how do you prevent Bishop from jumping w...

Game Breaking Bug: Not picking up BUS before Kiril only leads to failure

I mentioned this somewhere else but figured I should make it prominent here (really needs to be fixed). I tried playing the game without ever picking up the BUS. It is doable via gassing Kiril and picking the correct traitor but the traitor, when pulling the gun, automatically fires at the player ki...

We don't know if the latter is even possible - and if it is, well, the argument that every character is actually MUVI-domianted by Henry becomes far more palatable, doesn't it? What if every character in Consortium is the King, and we're talking to him the whole time? I think only Bishops, Knights,...

Interestingly, there is no mention of Subject #21 after Th21e Tr21uth Pt. 4. Subject #21 also stands out as someone Henry was very careful with because he didn't die--at least not in March. That's a good catch that the motor control chip likely killed Kevin Chard. Considering Henry wouldn't want to ...
