Okay, so I was at the part when you've just got the one resonance doodad thingy from the hospital basement, and you go outside and see the news report on the usually turned off TV. After that, the two guys decide to rush up to the roof ASAP.

However, the gate in the wire fence was padlocked, and so they did what anyone would do in that situation if they were taking part in a glitch, and teleported through the gate and across the ground beyond it so they appeared by the door to the crane. Then the scene ended and they came out on the roof.

I'd guess that an animation just didn't play if it wasn't for the fact that the gate was padlocked (and remained padlocked after they teleported, with no one mentioning it). Were you meant to have opened it earlier in the game, and I somehow progressed without doing that?

I don't remember having trouble getting through the gate with Ray and then he pointed out the TV to Bennet, but it was also late and my mental abilities might have been fuzzy, lol. But the scene skipping is definitely unusual. I remember them getting in the elevator and it shows the elevator going up to the roof, outside the building, then they get out of the elevator and converse.

I just went back to test it again. I didn't do this originally because I hadn't saved for a while before that point but I just now noticed it had auto-saved. The problem seems to be that you can look at the TV without opening the gate. If you do this, after the news footage plays, they teleport to the door of the crane lift since the gate is still shut but the game assumes it must be open.

The padlock is on the gate but it doesn't seem to be a problem since they just open it regardless, which seems a little odd. It didn't actually skip the animation of them going up to the roof, so I guess I just missed it before since I was so surprised by the odd teleportation.

It looks like you just found another bug that we haven't found yet. :)

But who on earth would watch the TV before opening the gate? Tropxe, of course :)
just kidding...thank you for that, Tropxe....Vince, Dave and the crew will certainly appreciate that

Hehe :D

Well it's because for most of the game you can click on it to investigate it from outside of the fence - and if you click on the fence, the person just says (well, it always seemed to be Ray in my case) "I could vault over it but they probably have security cameras". So when I came out the hospital and the TV was actually showing a programme for a change, I was like "Wow, gotta click on it!" I'm guessing the fix will be to make the door opening animation play first if the player clicks on the TV before the gate? Anyway, glad to have helped in some small way. ;)

That is really strange. I could've sworn that I checked that explicitly in the release build and it didn't seem to play the news footage when the door was still closed. Oh well...

@Tropxe
:) Yeah, same thought! That's why I wanted to make sure this wouldn't happen. Not too succesfull as it appears! :P
