Can't select third character in time attack even though I beat the game as him
Thread title, I've seen another person or two with this issue but I haven't seen any replies. Do you have to do time attack as Yunica before being able to do his?

Have you try reinstall a game or verify integrity of game cache yet? somw files maybe broken or imperfect installed.

I just verified the integrity and one file needed to be reacquired (which it did) but he's still greyed out. His portrait is there, I just can't mouse over him.
Have you tried selecting him by keyboard (arrow keys + attack button)?

I have, I normally use a controller but I tried kb/m and still no luck.

My only theory is that you have to beat the game as Hugo because the menu can't scroll up to select the third character, and I don't have Hugo's time attack unlocked.

I'm not sure, does anyone have all three unlocked? Can you go up at that menu or do you have to push down twice to get to him?

Yeah, you can press up at that menu to get to the bottom of the list.

Anyway, not sure what your problem is, as I did both Yunica and Hugo's stories before doing Toal. That's how it originally was supposed to be, but the Steam release apparently changed it so only one of Yunica or Hugo needed to be completed to unlock him. Not sure if your issue would be a byproduct of that or not. Hmm, but I'm reading from a couple different sources that just beating the story mode with a character is enough to get said character's normal version unlocked for Time Attack, so if you've actually sat all the way through the credits, I don't know what's going on.

I did sit through the credits, and his portrait is there (Hugo's isn't as I haven't beat the game as him yet.)

I'll have to see. After I beat the game as Hugo I'll see if I can select Toal, if I still can't then maybe I need to beat the game as Toal again to reunlock it.

Well I beat the game as Hugo on nightmare. The trick is to have Yunica and Hugo unlocked to be able to select Toal for time attack. Just updating the thread in case anyone searches this in the future.

So it seems Time Attack still keeps an original from old system.
Charles Pierce Jul 30, 2014 @ 11:17pm 
Possibly. I'm wondering if it would also be impossible to select Toal if you had unlocked Hugo and Toal and not Yunica.

I won't be trying it out, but it might be possible since he'd only be one slot away instead of two.
