desc: when equipping The Antarctic jacket from The halloween event and then return to The game menu you will be unable to use that character and your character will have no jacket on in the character select screen.
steps to repruduce: just start the game and select a character who has The Antarctic jacket on
Thank you!!! I went bonker after it frozen on me and I load up the game turning into black screen. So I took your advice to join somebody else’s host to change to a different jacket from Antarctic jacket. It worked!!
Hi all, just checking in to confirm we’re aware of this and investigating. Apologies for the trouble. As Pig_Mac suggests above, that’s a great temporary workaround whilst we look at a more permanent fix.
Yeah, if it wasn’t for @Pig_Mac I would have a heart attack because I thought there was no way to get out of black hole screen until he suggested to try to join multiplayer to change to a different jacket. It worked.
Unfortunately Pig_Mac’s suggestion does not work for myself or some of my sons. (We have 5 copies of Gen Zero) Two of them only had 1 Character and they were wearing that jacket. They are unable to load the game or join a game without the game either crashing, or having a black screen. Their only option is to create a new character. I had another Character I could use for now.
You should be able to join ANY open mp session via matchmaking (find game) and remove the jacket in the mp session then return to main menu and continue on your character that is no longer wearing the jacket.
It shouldn’t be necessary to be invited to a session, joining a session in any way should be enough, so as long as you can find an mp session to join you should be able to get around it!
Unless you are in the same boat as AvMAN, and the workaround isn’t working for you at all ;_;
