I've encountered a really annoying bug that's pretty much stopping me from playing the game: I went to talk to the notary; however, after the first dialogue topic I chose (Anna), Kate basically ended the dialogue, and I couldn't choose any more topics. Every time I went back to talk to him, Kate would basically just say "I have to leave now". Trying to leave the room, however, gave me "I should talk to the notary first".
I tried reloading my save file, which didn't help at all -- now the first time I go to talk to him, it goes straight to "I have to leave".
Then I tried uninstalling, deleting the save files, and reinstalling the game. Now, I can't even get past the first dialogue in the hotel, because all Kate will say is "I would like to see my room now". Because I can't ask about having the luggage taken up to the room, I'm basically stuck there.
Has anybody encountered this bug? Or does anyone have any ideas on where this setting might be stored? Because it's neither in the game folder nor the save files. Any help would be appreciated!
