View Full Version : Possible bug when reaching the Banshee

Hi there;

Just been blasting my way through the PC version of Avatar and, yeah I like it so far! However it all went wrong when I reached the aerie of the Banshees.

Basically I fight my way to the aerie, run up to the banshees, watch a cutscene where one knocks you off the cliff then dives to catch you before flying away. Then the game appears to load the next part, but you briefly see two short images of your character dying (presumably having fallen) on the floor, between which the game is loading again. Then I'm returned to the beginning of the path (I think) that leads to the banshees, and I cannot move (either by kdb/mouse) or Escape to the game menu. I have to alt-f4 and reload the game.

After installation the game downloaded a 180mb (ish) patch, and that applied successfully. It's done this strange anomoly on two consecutive occasions with the same results. I presume I *should* start some kind of flying mission on the banshee, but no such luck.

Has anyone else had any experience of this? It's the end of the level called "Cloud Walk".

Many thanks;

Rakku

Thanks for the reply Shade!

So you just tried it again and it worked, or did you do something to make it skip to the next part of the game?

I get stuck, as you did, every time. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Nice one. I tried running a different direction than that expected, and then got to the next part. Seems a rather silly bug given the amount of game you have to replay to try again. Need to be able to save any time in any game FTW. Checkpoints suck.

The game falls short of the lore given in the film on a good number of levels. Perhaps I'll post in the feedback thread.

For the record... whoever designed the flight controls for the banshee needs a good slapping. You get an impression of the weight and inertia, and that's good, but why not allow mouse controls to pitch and roll??

Thanks for your help! At least I can continue the game now. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
