Crackdown 2 DLC Includes Game-Breaking Bugs
Crackdown 2 players have reported major issues with the recently released Toy Box DLC. According to posts on the official Ruffian Games forums (spotted by Shacknews), both the free and paid versions of the add-on are affected by bugs.
Upon acquiring the DLC, some players note that the game stalls on the title screen. Others report that unlocking certain Achievements can lead to the Achievement voiceovers repeating on an infinite loop -- eventually dragging the framerate down to an unplayable state.
Ruffian co-founder Gaz Liddon chimed in on the forum thread with an acknowledgement of the bugs, as well as offering some band-aid fixes while the devs work on a real solution. "We have confirmation of what the issue is now. The paid part of the DLC was incorrectly configured when mastered," reads his statement.
For now, Liddon suggests Crackdown 2 players take the following action:
- Delete Toybox DLC
- Delete your profile (just the profile, not the items attached)
- Recover your profile
- Redownload DLC
"What needs to happen is the correct configuration files get put on Marketplace and everyone whove paid for the DLC gets the update." the studio head added. "How that will happen or when I dont currently know. It has to be quickly obviously."
