Bugs found in RE5 (Steam) so far + links to fan made fixes for some...
Updated 29/07/15 to include latest bugs/fixes found.

This list comes courtesy of Conturmalis on REmodding, so many thanks to him.

Bugs remaining after Patch#1

Stages.
• Chapter 6-1: Ship Deck. Sometimes Majini with a key-card can't jump down after spawn and you can't kill him to get a key-card.
Fixed - http://residentevilmodding.boards.net/thread/4418/chapter-ship-majini-resident-steam

• Desperate Escape Stage 1. Some enemies, like a Chainsaw Majini or Gatling Majini, can't get out from the container.
Fixed - http://residentevilmodding.boards.net/thread/4447/

• Ugly waves in Chapter 2-1: The Port (not a stage bug actually, vfx bug). Not fixed. {LINK REMOVED} <<Screenshot.
• Chapter 3-1: Marshlands. Area with crocodiles on the east. After restart from the checkpoint, crocodiles enemy set will be cycled to infinity respawn. Changing stage files doesn't help. Not fixed.
• Chapter 3-1: Marshlands. North area. If you place the mines before picking up the quest item, they will disappear while cutscene playing and appear after cutscene's end. In GFWL version, mines will stay in the cutscene and enemies will hitting mines in cutscene. Not fixed.
• Chapter 3-2: Oil Field - Refinery. Restart from the checkpoint, after killing one or both Chainsaw majinies, will cause enemies, that you've killed before, to respawn. Not fixed.
• Mercenaries. Container's collision bug in the Ship Deck stage. Not fixed.

Misc.
• Games for Windows Live is required to launch and play the game. FIXED by Mulac.
• Unable to give or request weapons from AI partner in campaign. FIXED by Mulac.
• Region lock when searching for the game lobby. FIXED by Mulac.
• Loosing equipped weapon after death in versus mode (except Jill BSAA). FIXED by Mulac.
• The game shows incorrect country flag when you host a game session and when you upload scores to the leaderboards. FIXED by Mulac.

• Slots scheme always sorted for gamepad usage in mercenaries and all Gold Edition content. In GFWL version they are switching if you are using keyboard and have numerical scheme ON.
• Turning ON anti-aliasing will result black outlines on the characters and objects.
• Static title screen. "Resident Evil 5" title is not animated.
• Private slots when hosting a Mercenaries, Mercenaries Reunion, or Versus lobby doesn't work properly. Client accepting invite (or choosing "join game" when selecting friend in steam) will get a "The player limit has been reached" message.
• During the chapter result screen in co-op, if one player chooses "OK" and second player lets the 60 second timer run out, the game will soft lock for both players.
• When hosting a LAN-only server, friends can still join via the internet by sending them invite or having the friend choose "join game" when selecting you in steam.
• Lost in Nightmares static camera angle Easter egg (interact with front door 3 times) isn't fully playable with mouse and keyboard controls (aiming gets stuck to middle of screen).
• Collision bug, where players and enemies could get stuck in geometry at framerates above 30 is mostly fixed, but it can still happen when playing at 120fps, and it has a very low chance of occurring when playing at 60fps. Its behaviour is now identical to how it was in the GFWL version.

JESUS CHRIST, FIX THIS, CAPCOM.

Nice. Think I'll wait for the patch though, and come back for one or two of these if anything doesn't get fixed in the update (haven't got the DLC so nothing particularly bothersome for me)

Thanks for posting

Thank you to every RE5/Bio5 fans!

Having to rearrange the inventory every time is getting tiresome.

I have just reintalled if after the transition to steam. My god; please tell me they haven't broken another frigging game by removing that crappy gfwl. It seems no game can have it removed without a host of problems being introduced.

THX for doing this. It really helped.

Only a hint for who can't start the game, downgread the driver (nVidia, tested by me and a friend and worked) to an older version. The most recent I tried and worked was 285.62. You can play almost all games, but recent ones will run in lag.

But Capcom IS working to fix these problems, right?

I just find it embarassing. I shouldn't HAVE to download a bunch of unofficial fixes from a fan forum.
DarkSamus Apr 14, 2015 @ 7:16pm 
I am sure that Capcom is looking to fix most of these bugs
DarkSamus Apr 14, 2015 @ 11:43pm 
I not long finished having a chat with wbacon...
DarkSamus: Did you see my post in the bug reporting thread for RE5?
DarkSamus: And its own thread I gave it ;)
wbacon [capcom]: which one?
wbacon [capcom]: do you have a link?
DarkSamus: steamcommunity.com/app/21690/discussions/0/618458030688121927/
wbacon [capcom]: let me check.
DarkSamus: np
wbacon [capcom]: i think many of these have already been fixed in the upcoming patch
DarkSamus: cooool
wbacon [capcom]: one I'm not familiar with is the Chris' hair bug
DarkSamus: Hope we get that patch soon
wbacon [capcom]: Things that I recall being fixed:
- Jill's hair
- jill's SFX bugs
- Sheva's fairy tale costume (teeth coloring)
- missing BGM in Ch. 4-2
- missing red flower
- missing SIG556 gun case
- there's been a change in matchmaking where the search area will be wider than before
wbacon [capcom]: and I think Barry's voice, though I haven't checked yet
DarkSamus: nice
DarkSamus: It is a great start at least
wbacon [capcom]: is there a way to trigger his missing voice samples?
DarkSamus: I am not sure. I'll ask around on re modding
wbacon [capcom]: and the Chris hair is something I'm not familiare with, nor have I never noticed this ever being an issue
DarkSamus: yeah, I saw a picture but could not find the fault
DarkSamus: I'll ask the guys on remodding for a clarification on what the issue is with his hair
DarkSamus: nice
DarkSamus: any idea how soon we can expect the patch?
wbacon [capcom]: well I think they're trying to get it to Microsoft this week if the new build checks out okay after a playthrough and nothing else breaks.
DarkSamus: I badly want to import my save :P
DarkSamus: fair enough
wbacon [capcom]: and that's been the biggest challenge so far in getting the save import feature to work reliably
DarkSamus: any chance they will put the code back in that broke the splitscreen mod?
wbacon [capcom]: Because we're trying to import achievement progress (and not just save file), it requires users to sign into GFWL. This is where things get super tricky because as many have experienced, signing into the GFWL client or the GFWL service through the game hasn't worked reliably
DarkSamus: I see
DarkSamus: works for some PCs but not others?
wbacon [capcom]: it works on some OS setups, and not so much on others. there's no consistency or pattern to determine why it works on one machine and not work on another with seemingly same exact configuration
DarkSamus: ah, what a pain in the ass
DarkSamus: are capcom going to allow DR2 and DR2otr GFWL versions to be beta's while waiting for the save transfer tool?
wbacon [capcom]: no plans for that. RE5 was a different case because some folks wanted to continue playing with DX10 for Nvidia 3D vision and...folks who wanted to play with existing fan made mods that only worked on old GFWL version
DarkSamus: ah ok
DarkSamus: well I thank you/capcom for listening to us modders and doing it for people who want splitscreen and 3DVision

Still no answer on exactly when we should expect a patch but there is one coming and it is confirmed to includes fixes that will kill the need for some mods that correct bugs that the game has on steam now

Just added "• Loosing equipped weapon after death in versus mode (except Jill BSAA)." to the list of bugs in the OP from a report elsewhere.
