FRUSTRATING! In the prologue, when Joel follows Tommy into the alleyway, Joel is jumped by an infected opponent at the end of the alley. He is supposed to hold off the attacker (square) until Tommy comes to the rescue. Unfortunately, Tommy is stuck at the entrance to the alley, looking like a lobotomy patient, lurching back and forth. I've redownloaded and reinstalled. I've started in safe mode and rebuilt the database, then reinstalled. NOTHING works. I've just spent a ton of money on a game that lets me do nothing but watch a long prologue cut scene and then stand in an alley until I run to the end to seek suicide by zombie in order to end the suffering. Neither Sony nor NaughtyDog seem to have a solution,
At the gate with Tommy, please be sure to spam the square button when the infected attack.
How do you fix the car glitch in the prologue? Tommy and Joel glitch out of the car and start floating, and the game just cuts to black and my PS3 turns itself off. Please help, as this is a really great game (I've heard) and I was elated to try it.
I have the same problem. Tommy lurches back and forth at the gateway to the alley. The square buttond oes not work - spamming or otherwise. Have tried all variations of re-installation and restarting.
This may be way too obvious, but you are spamming the square button when the prompt appears, correct?
*the entire game
Yes, I've restarted the entire no less than a dozen times. I've reloaded the checkpoint at least 30 times. Nothing clears this glitch.
The model is CUH-1215A, brand new PS4 just out of the box this weekend, all original.
I've also reinstalled the entire PS4 operating software package on the advice of Sony, because they can't figure out the gitch either.
Thanks for the videos. Sorry about the persistent issue.
We're assuming you've already attempted to restart the chapter, and simply reloading the checkpoint?
Can you provide the model number of your PS4 and confirm you are using the stock hard drive?
I have rebuilt the PS4 database 4 times, also initialized, also reinstalled the entire PS4 sofware package. Running the game from downloaded file as well as a disc. The glitch still happens every time.
Here you go, I posted the video of my glitch onto youtube. It's at https://youtu.be/PPfZZbqpmnQ
How do I upload? I have a video.
This is not the first instance of this glitch; it appears repeatedly in forums.
Please advise how to upload to you...
Meanwhile, you can see the glitch in this youtube video from last year. Luckily, that user found that Tommy broke out of his trance and rejoined the game. In my case, he never does and my character dies. Here's the youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGR4whBuwk4
Sorry you are having trouble. Did you attempt to restart the checkpoint when this issue occurs? If it occurs each time, could you please record and upload a video for us to view? This sounds like pretty unusual.
By the way, this is PS4, brand new unit, downloaded version of TLOU. The downloaded game takes about 45 GB of my clean 500 GB drive. This is NOT a harddrive issue. Have downloaded the game via both wifi and ethernet connection; makes no difference.
