Uh oh, someone didn’t do their job in the ‘quality assurance’ department! Reports are coming in from Japan that Fatal Frame IV has some pretty serious bugs that could end up squashing your game.
During “三ノ蝕 忘日” after you have obtained the coded memo, if you open the door to the doctor’s room on the 2nd floor of the hospital the game will lock up. To avoid this, after getting the memo go to the director’s office in the first floor and enter the 3 digit code into the interphone first.
That’s a work-around for one of the major bugs, but it’s not the only problem gamers are having. There are some other game-killers out there, and on top of that, there are some pretty bad clipping issues. Sounds like this title needs a bit more time in development before it hits North America. Oh, I’m sorry…if it hits North America.
