View Full Version : Unicyclist Spotted Airborne in LeMans' Casino

I was snagging some reference screenshots from GF yesterday, and ran across a possible bug that struck me as pretty funny.

I restored a savegame in Year 4, inside the casino. Manny was standing beside Meche, facing Charlie (I probably tried throwing the sheet over him once before I saved). The one-armed, unicycle-riding LSA agent was standing in front of the far left slot machine, and I walked Manny over in his direction.

I got stopped by an invisible barrier around the agent (which I assumed was normal), and as I was trying to remember which key I had to press to interact with a game character, the agent backed away from his machine, and instead of wheeling over to the other machine, kept cycling backwards over the casino floor and eventually floating up into the air and off the screen!

When I restored the same game a second time to try to recreate this, I was successful, as I was the third and fourth time I tried. Once I tried following the agent, and his gravity-defying route took him out of the slots area, through the upper floor, making it look like he was wading through the carpet backwards, and eventually disappearing through the far wall! And even after he vanished, I could still hear the cheery squeak of his unicycle.

Has anyone else encountered this, or am I the only one to have done so?

I encountered this when I was first playing the game; he did this vanishing act after I had talked to him once, but before I figured out I needed him to get me past that slot machine part. That got me really frustrated. :rolleyes: I ended up figuring it must be a bug that he disappeared and reloaded an earlier saved game.

How were you able to recreate it? Is there a specific thing that must be done, or did you just wait and he did it on his own eventually?

I guess my saved game must have been a lucky accident. I've been trying to determine what variables (talking to the agent, talking to Meche, the agent's position when saving the game, etc.) caused this bug to happen, but I haven't had any luck duplicating this fluke so far.

All I needed to do in this particular save was turn Manny around from where he stood and walk him over to the LSA agent, getting him as close as possible.

Hmm...I guess I could submit some screenshots of this bug to the GFN, since this seems to be a rare occurance.
