So you're saying every time you use clairvoyance, Raz disappears? Or something else?

I guess so. I don't know how to fix that one... you've probably tried this, but you could take the CD out and... wipe it? I don't know, worth a shot.

10-14-2005, 09:39 PM
yep, it worked........... nah just kiddin,

guess Ill have to start a new game....

I think that's normal, you see when you use clairvoyance you see the world through their eyes, so think of it this way, can you see yourself? (not Raz, actually you) of course not, so naturally the chracter cannot see themself.

Other then yet, yeah wipe the CD.

no, its not normal... ok, let me explain it carefully, when I use Clairvoyance on the guard, for example, The camera doesnt change its position, the guard just disappears, the scene gets full of some sort of figments or indications, and Im still able to control raz....

when you use clairvoyance, you see through his eyes, right? 1st person? cause if it is that what is supposed to happen, well, in that case, this is a bug...

like I said before, sorry for my baaaad english

Alright. You should still be able to control Raz. You should be able to move around and such, but you should be seeing it through the other character's eyes. Boyd's eyes, in your case? Are you in his house?

Okay...so if I'm understanding you...you go to use clairvoyance and the character you're attempting to use it on just...disappears? Nothing else changes? Because what you should be seeing is something like this (http://tim.grimfandango.net/psy/info/clairvoy/hedgetrimmer.jpg), where the cartoony hedgetrimmer guy is Raz, just how one of the characters sees him. You're still able to control Raz, but you have no control over the camera, and you're seeing him through the eyes of whoever you've used clairvoyance on.

If I'm understanding you right and the characters are just disappearing and you're not getting a screen like the one I linked to, then...honestly, I'd say report it to either DoubleFine or Majesco, because that's a serious bug, and also one I don't think anyone's run into before.

that pic, awesome. Bald guys can't look that happy though.

ok guys, this is definitively, a bug, but Im not reporting it though.
I dont mind starting over, and trying again. Ive been reading about a bug that happens while loading, that corrupt the rest of the game, maybe ive came across with one of this, I dont know....
By the way, Psychonauts turned out to be one of the best games ive played so far, It has an original story, and I really enjoy its twisted style!

thanks guys for helping! bye!

Huh What OK let me see if I'm any help if You're in his mind get out and use it on someone else if you're in the real world use it in his mind. If that don't work all I can tell you... Restart.
Oh and to Darth YOU ARE WOMEN and you just said you're not girly men or women?

I am having the same problem. I am on the milkman level, and when ever I try to use clairvoyance on anything the thing I used it on just disappears, the gmen, mailboxes, items, everything. I am running on a geforce 4600. Any ideas what to do? I tried starting a new profile and using the same game editor to get to the level, but once I got the power the same thing happened. Any ideas?

The same thing happens for me. Although in Milkmans level It helps me a lot (I can make all those suspicious guys to disappear and I dont need any special item) but sometimes it makes me mad!! For example when I use this psi on this green warm that can teleport me to any level it just... disappear. And everything else that Raz can use/look at also disappear when using clairvoyance. It would be madnes to start everything all over and if the game broke again...

But I think that I found the solution. For me it happens when I have game with patch v1.04. I just reinstal game and DO NOT apply patch. I know that it may fix some problems but... I prefere that than missing those funny cartoon "sketchs" that are instead of Raz when someone is looking at me :)
