PostSubject: Lots of glitches...   Fri Apr 29, 2011 4:09 pm

So, as much of a good game it is, IXS is full of glitches, and inevitably since I run it on Windows 7, I have an overwhelming amount of minor (ish) glitches to deal with. The game is still playable but I have glitches that prevent me from playing large parts of the game. So here goes with all the glitches I've experienced in IXS, that I have never seen anyone else experience before, and if anyone can help it would be great. :)

1. In the Wave Catcher minigame (I think it's called that?) my boat stalls when I get to the top of a ramp so I can't perform any tricks or go over the ramp, and I am forced to go round them all. Also sometimes if I am hit by another boat I am sometimes sent flying into the sky never to return to ground.

2. In the skydiving minigame, the arrow keys are wayy too sensitive and cause me to spin round in circles uncontrollably so it is impossible to complete this minigame.

3. One of the most annoying problems; whenever I get into a boat I am rocketed up into the sky and the graphics screw up so all I can see is white and some green blobs, and can't do anything other than get out.

4. Controls for planes and helicopters are screwed up; I can't go up or down in altitude (in planes) and I move at an incredibly slow speed.

5. When I adjust the screen resolution to match my computer's screen resolution, the graphics dramatically improve but fonts and other things on the screen like scores and speedometers etc go way smaller or disappear.

6. On the climb up the Brickster's tower, Pepper will sometimes fall into the ground and be unable to move.

7. The mouse sensitivity is way too low, so I can't use the camera function well.

8. Finally, sometimes when I exit a minigame, the pause menu takes ages to slide out of view.

All these glitches are really annoying, so if you can help with any of them it would be much appreciated. :)

Well, first step is installing it on a separate windows 7 machine.
Are you able to do that?

Nope, but I can install it on a PC on XP, I can do that tomorrow, but on my old PC with XP, the boat glitch still existed.

As I recall, none of these glitches ever happened to me (on XP) (And you did mention nobody else has these glitches).
If all (or at least most) of these glitches are still present, then there's a good chance there's a problem with your disk.

I could try installing IXS again (windows 7 machine) and see what results I get...

The thing is, when I played it on my XP computer I never got past the Air Chase due to my 10 year old self's suckish gaming skills. :P So I don't know whether the other glitches would have been present. The boat one was but the Wave Catcher one wasn't.

I've never heard of any of those glitches... Only glitch of that style I've ever had is getting stuck in the ground when getting out of a vehicle, and that only happens one time out of a hundred. I'm using XP. Not sure how to help you there...

I can upload some videos/images later on if that would help?

Well now that I've been able to play this, I can answer a few things.

All of this is unfamiliar to me and can't think of any fixes aside from playing around with compatibility settings. :|

Hasn't it always been like that? I know it is very sensitive to me too, which makes using a gamepad which I've been play with way to hard. All I can suggest is keep trying it until you get it, or send your save file to someone who can do it for you.

A common problem on Win7/8, I myself usually only experience this when I transform my plane to a boat, though others get it just like you. Recording with Fraps seems to stop the problem in either case though (although that is a kinda annoying thing to do...). Oddly, when I set the game speed to .50 speed with Cheat Engine, this also happens. Hmm...

The only time I seem to have this problem is when I'm in the convertable boat/car/plane and I convert from boat to plane while in boat whiteness. Not sure why you are having this problem otherwise.

Yes, this happens to me too. (also, did you notice when you throw a pizza at a mailbox, the mail flying out effect cuts off like at regular resolution still?). I believe they didn't optimize the game for the other resolutions they put in there, unfortunately. :(

I've had this happen a couple times normally on the main island randomly (though one time I got shoved in...), not sure why you are experiencing it only in this certain part of the game.

Yeah, I noticed the sensitivity is low too, which is why I got stuck using the camera reset key all the time, I suggest you use that too!

All the extra gfx the menu puts on the screen causes lag for you possibly? I know some game menus have cause lag for me in the past. I haven't heard of anyone else with this problem yet.
