View Full Version : Missing Plasmid Hand [Xbox360]
02-11-2010, 07:11 AM
While playing Siren Alley ,specifically in Daniel Wales apartment my plasmid hand disapeared completely. I could not switch plasmids or use them at all ,or bring up the plasmid wheel. With further experimenting I found that you lose the hand whenever you use the scout plasmid or zoom with a weapon. A couple of other times it seemed to disapear randomly in fights.
I looked around online for a solution and one was to go to a gene bank and reselect a plasmid but that didnt work for me ,the only way for me to get the plasmid hand back is to die.
I tried the search button already and didnt find anything of use.
Thanks in advance for whatever help you can give ,great job on everything else in the game so far.

Have you tried clearing the system cache files to see if this helps?
To do this you need to be at the Xbox dashboard outside of the game.
It should be under: System Settings > Memory > Hard drive (device options) > select "clear system cache files"
Please let me know if this helps.

I have been running into the same issue (360 as well). I tried clearing the cache with no luck.
I am currently in Siren Valley, and the anytime I zoom with a weapon my plasmid is stuck missing. The only way to get it back is reloading a save point or dying.
Loading early save points allows me to use plasmids. So that leaves me to believe it is either the level, or the plasmids I've purchased. I have also un-equipped all of my tonics, ...no help.
The game is extremely difficult without the help of plasmids... let alone frustrating and bland. I'm not going to rant about how this game was rushed out, there are enough people doing that. I'd like to believe that the true developers of this game were forced to rush the game due to the money handlers above. But who knows...
If anyone knows what is causing the dissapering plasmid bug, or how to fix it permantely you'd be letting a good deal of us enjoy the game.

Which point specifically in the apartment does it disappear? Is it after dialogue or an interaction with another object? We may need to look into this a little further.

Right after I dropped in the hole in Daniel wales's office and used scout that's where I first noticed it . I used the hacking tool on the 2 sentry guns and scouted outside ,at that point Sinclair was saying something about pinning his ears back. I had used a scout to check the hole before dropping into it as well let me know if you need anything else.

I think it's only in siren alley that you lose the hand I continued playing and in the next level I don't think I've lost the plasmid hand once.

It appers that you cannot use plasmids when you are zooming the weapons. I dont know if it schould be that way or if it is a bug? /Johan

With the zoom on you should not be able to use plasmids . Since the zoom increases accuracy and decreases recoil it would proably be a little unfair to the splicers if you could use plasmids zoomed.
