I am encountering an issue that has not happened in any of my prior playthroughs (Athena, Wilhelm, Claptrap, Baronness, Handsome Jack—all at least through True VM mode, if not Ultimate.)
I am on TVM as CLPTP for the second time, in Fantastic Voyage. I am at the point where he jas given me my weapons. As soon as I leave the platform—either by jumping or the launch pad—the soundtrack/background sounds stop (I can still hear enemies firing and CLPTP jumping, firing, etc.) but I can no longer hear Claptrap’s Consciousness, either in person or by ECHO. Nor can I hear CLPTP’s wheel’s spinning. Also, the subtitles no longer show, the mini constructor bots can’t be heard, and the Torgue Fiesta musoc no longer plays. It’s a weird mixture of what does and doesn’t play.
When I meet up with CLPTP’s Consciousness again at the door, all he does is wave his hands around. Nothing happens; I let him do this for 10 minutes at one point. The game will not advance. Nor will it save and quit; it acts like it is, but, after the Vault Symbol stops flashing, I stay in the game. I have to “hard leave” using the PS3 button. My weapons are saved, so now I have a nice arsenal of glitch weapons.
When I log back in, I start over in the Nexus with Jack telling me what the next steps are. The sound is fine…until I leave the platform.
I tried for an hour and a half to get past this point (logging out, back in/restarting my PS3/logging in with a different character and back in, etc.)
I realize this game is 3 years old, but I would like to keep going. I can’t even play through with no sound as CLPTP never opens the door.
PS3 and the game are up to date. I didnsearch the forums for a solution, but found none. Also: Disk is clean. I checked for smears on the off-chance that may have been it.
I also cannot fast travel. That totally freezes the game and I have to manually turn off my PS3.
