List of bugs, missing items, etc. (Updated 31/03/2014)
Per request of Jerion from the Eidos' forum I'm adding a link to a thread that will aim to provide official clarifications and responses to issues people have been experiencing with the DC:

Human Revolution Director's Cut: Answers from the team[forums.eidosgames.com]

-- Nomenclature --

*SAE - Problem Solved According to Eidos

*FiET - Fix can be found in the Eidos thread

-- Original post --

I thought it'd be a good idea if we kept a list of bugs, missing items, etc., that we've encountered while playing the DC so as not to be forced to search dozens of threads. I'll try and update this post as I'm able. I've yet to start playing but I've already found that the promised strategy guide is missing and, apparently, the Tactical-Pattern Recognition System augment is not in the game. If someone could confirm the latter, I'd appreciate it.

So, what other discrepancies have you found?

List of missing features/bugs:

1) No official strategy guide (Wii U exclusive)
2) No Tactical-Pattern Recognition System augment (Wii U only)
3) No touchscreen hacking
4) Frame rate drops
5) Broken carpet pattern in Detroit's apartment buildings (SAE)
6) Texture problem on the base of Detroit convenience shops (SAE)
7) Holding W+A or W+D results in movement speed increase
8) Cloaks and Daggers' quest: floating cup bug
9) Before the "security" tutorial: you can walk into the wall on the left
10) One of the male hobo NPCs in Detroit City Sewers (right at the bottom of the manhole behind DPD) can revert to the default "arms raised sideways" position and will stay as such. Screen | Screen | Screen
11) Problems opening/loading the game
12) Black posters on company lobby after intro (SAE)
13) Flashing dots on the characters if you turn on the Tesselation (may be Nvidia-related)

24) Polish and Russian languages are missing (Not supported)
25) Inventory: using an automatic unlocking device for a quest consumes two
26) One of the NPCs in the garden pods is standing in mid air.
27) Sometimes after a quickload, those reflections in windows will be distorted so instead of seeing the reflection of the room behind me it's just a broken mosaic of colors.

29) Sometimes menu buttons stop working and become unresponsive.
30) In China after Belltower attacks the Alice Garden Pods, I escaped, then went to the LIMB clinic. Right after I exited the limb clinic, the background music / ambience started skipping. When the glitch is present, you are unable to talk to Malik's friend from the LIMB clinic after he heads outside.

I have a glitch for you. In the quest "getting inside help" and " in the belly of the beast" I can even see Quinn to interact with him. and I can not get through the first check point since the doors will not open for me to be able to scan the biometric data.

You obviously haven't been following this thread since the thread was originally created. SE promised a patch and admitted that they removed features from the original DC (integration with tablets, languages, etc). They went silent all of a sudden after switching their PR spokesperson.

Your justification of $10 only makes it somewhat ok if you had purchased it after the first year. Originally it was a slap to the face, since it was no longer possible to buy the less inferior original on Steam, and were forced to pay the full price for a worse game. What makes matters worse, is that the original is still not for sale.

In conclusion, your "defense" doesn't make sense in regards to why this thread exists in the first place. Move along.
Fortunately for those that DID manage to buy the original, they still have the option of installing it!

Only did a few quests and already having permanent and gamebreaking bugs where my 3rd energy cell doesn't regenerate and one target NPC in "Cloak and Daggers" is stuck inside the ceiling, making the mission impossible to complete.
I know that i'm necroing but if anyone sees this
cells after two aren't supposed to automatically regenerate afaik, ya gotta use dem items fo dat?

Just found out i missed a side quest (Cloak & Daggers) due to the Jenny Alexander bug. This is ridiculous.

Bug? She changes locations and the side mission works just fine:

Can you also confirm there are no other bugs aforementioned? If so, send everyone here a copy of your unbugged game.
The bugs vary from person to person, due understand that if something works for you, it will not necessarily work for the other 600+ people mentioning the bug.

Way to over react. Did I say there were no other bugs in the game?

This is one of the big ones people jumped all over with the Directors Cut came out, screaming she was gone and that they couldn't do the missions. She was moved, it wasn't a bug and people need to chill the ♥♥♥♥ out.

There are simply some things that keep getting thrown on the bug list that were not valid.

There are other bugs present in the game, but then again none of them were game breaking to me. I finished the game (100% achievements) and enjoyed every moment of it. Is it perfect? No, and I'm not claiming it is. But show me a game that is.

For whatever reason this game generates far more hysteria over trivial bugs than any other I've ever seen and there's a swamp load of irrational idiots foaming at the mouth over them instead of just enjoying the game for what it is.

A lot of the rage that you see in this thread is based on the time, rather than it being relevant now. When the game first came out, it replaced the original game, which didn't have the same texture issues etc that the director's cut had. So it was essentially a downgrade at full price, while no longer allowing people to choose the non-director's cut.

The other reason was that the PR person for Square Enix at the time promised a patch to fix the obvious downgraded issues, and then once they replaced the PR person, the patch has been dead in the water.

Then you have the promised features that were supposed to come out after release, like the Intel interface for tablets, essentially reproducing what the Wii U version has. There were also languages that were removed at the last minute, etc.

Yes the game in and of itself is still a great game. The problem is that it is a downgrade that affected people new to the game and the people that purchased it thinking it was an upgrade (back when there were no refunds).

Yeah. Skyrim for example is quite bugy and yet is still praised and rightly so.

Some people are saying boycott the next game and so on. I managed to complete it fine, with only one bug and was able to find a way around it.
It is more the fact of how we were screwed that generates such aggression.
I used to own the Invisible War game, which focused on Biomods over technical replacement.
After playing on the Xbox, I saw this available for PC since my Xbox burned out, & expected an upgrade. Hard to not feel a sense of disappointment & aggression over a company allowing such a slap in the face to occur, but it's a BUSINESS. They are here to make MONEY. If they can make cash off an incomplete product (as is now very common in today's world) they will do it. Because when they decide to make another game, people are going to want to play it, regardless of how they leave the game later on.
Businesses like this don't care about our feelings. They care about getting our money. All we are is a price tag. Simple as that. Most gamers forget that.
Granted, a few care about their people, but there will always be a person who cares about profit more than the people who generate said profit. To screw us over is basically to remind us that we are little more than a price tag, which is degrading to say the least. But when the next game comes out? People wil buy it.
When these complaints first started, roughly 20% of the people basically said, "Well, they are working on the new game..."
That is all a company/business needs to not feel anything over a cash grab.

It's nice that they cared enough to bring back the old bugs with the new ones.
Hi,

I can confirm that, had the same issue.

Same issue here. Cannot complete two quests on my first playthrough. Fine game so far but I find this really surprising for an AAA title. Guess I will wait for the GOTY edition of Mankind Divided when it comes out.
ScAVENGE Sep 25, 2016 @ 8:30pm 
And I was just about to buy the game. Too bad the old version isn't up on steam anymore.

Better yet they should've kept patching this version but that's not happening, last real update news was from november 2013, rest is just newst about the new Deus Ex with the stupid DLC policies and sales announcements to cashgrab more. Eidos I guess.
