Just got the game last night. Sadly it freezes After pressing start, just like the demo did. Not very good for an opening day. Even though 360 posted an update on install of the game, no luck. Same for multiplayer. Cool start menu though. Anybody having this issue yet?

Aren't you the fellow who was found out for pirating the game?

Anyway are Edios actually doing anything about this freezing business, when shooting with the shotgun or kill a hostage?

In other words, are you guys working on a patch for the Xbox 360?

Well you must be the only person with that issue of not actually being able to get passed the start screen as any other X360 relates issues are just about freezing.

Just tested the game with the 360 elite minus the hard drive. The game I have still freezes after pressing start in the main menu. The disc is not dirty or scratched.

My room mate and I cannot be the only ones out there having connection issues regarding multiplayer. 90% of the ranked matches we try say "joining lobby" than shortly after "closing." the end result always being in a lobby all alone with no one joining. this happens with ranked FA, UCC, and C&R. haven't tried too many player matches and have no problem playing online co-op. I guess my question for the Devs is. Are you aware of these issues and are you planning on addressing them?
Thanks
p.s. I play many other online games including Battlefield Bad Company 2, Red Dead Redemption, and Monday Night Combat and have no connection issues

In regards to the freezing issue: We are looking into the issue, and are trying to find a fix for this issue. I would like to ask you guys that have experienced the crash when finishing level 2, if this only occurred once, and then resumed normal play after resetting the console, or if you experienced it more than once. Also I would like to know if you all had the audio cut off in the cutscene before the crash.

In regards to the slowdowns: All additional information you might have to share is greatly appreciated, mainly if you have consistent freezes, like the video from Jeff that gets referred to.

Thanks for helping us trying to nail down this issue, and all your support. We are following the forums closely to try and remedy these very unfortunate occurrences.

I really hope you guys get this sort out quickly as the game is out in the UK tomorrow and I've been really looking forward to it since playing the demo, only to find out less than a week before its release it suffers from game breaking bugs is horrible and really puts me off purchasing it for now.

In all fairness to the creators its a good game, but it is asking way too much for people to lay down their hard earn cash for a game that suffers from these bugs and to think only people who are connect via xbox live (and not everyone is!) can only download a patch for it.

I guess another question is, are edios going to recall a number of discs and release a fixed version like Nintendo did with Super Paper Mario on the Wii as that had a game breaking bug too.

My points are vaild I think and I guess I am kind of annoyed because I was really looking forward to playing this.

Anybody see how you can stay behind cover and still shoot around the cover as long as you have visual with the camera thats a huge fault i will be able to beat it on extreme no problem using this fault its very disappointing though.

Nick@IO
19th Aug 2010, 17:36
We're still tracking this issue. We think it might be related to an achievement or it could be disc error - those are two good candidates right now. I'll let you all know when/if we are wiser. It's obviously a pain if it affects widely but it's not something we've seen a truck load of reports on yet so it's hard to exactly reproduce the circumstances. Hopefully QA will figure this out and it will get sorted ASAP if it's possible.

I played about 6 chapters in online co-op on Extreme mode.After the game froze I had to go to the dashboard,when I started the game up it only said I had completed Welcome to Shanghai on Extreme.

Just tested the game with the 360 elite minus the hard drive. The game I have still freezes after pressing start in the main menu. The disc is not dirty or scratched.

Tried installing the game to the harddrive? That would at least eliminate, or drastically reduce the possibility of this being a disc read error. The disc may not look damaged or scratched, but that doesnt mean it cant have some sort of manufacturing fault in it.

Also, have you tried using a different Xbox 360 gamer profile at all? There have been cases with other games in the past where they would decide not to launch with specific 360 profiles and wouldnt work until you deleted the profile and redownloaded it from the Xbox live system (fallout 3 did this), or cases of broken games which would crash depending on specific characters not being in the gamer profile or the gamer profile name not being long enough (TNA impact).

Lastly, have you tried the disc on a different 360 console at all? Thats about the most definitive test you can do to ensure the disc isnt the problem.

Love the game.

It has been totally stable until part four where you go up the stairs on the right side after shooting the sniper. There are 2 acetyline canisters there and each time I threw them and fired they froze the game for a couple of seconds before the explosion went off. That was last night.

I started from the same checkpoint today just before you go up the stairs and it was fine both times????

The only other thing I have noticed is that scene when the guy is knocking down the door with the axe in chapter 3 I think it was and he would chop then the bang on the door would lag a second or 2.

I have 256mb arcade machine (doesn't have a silver dvd drive plate on it).
1 year old.
60gb Hd
VGA cable to my monitor.
The game is installed to Hd and there is 8gb storage still available.

Hope this helps......oh and to Kaneandlynchfan1988 this one is just for you:rasp:

The freezing issue happened when I started level 2, I play on an Xbox Elite. I started my second playthrough of Kane and Lynch, and hosted a co-op game, once my friend and I got to Street War I started experiencing the problem. I found it unplayable, so I went to single player and didn't have the problem. Later I played Fragile Alliance and killed a traitor with a shotgun and it caused my screen to freeze. I get the frezzing problem when I get headshots with the shotgun and gas canister/extinguisher kills.

Later I went back to single player (after installing the game) and experienced the problem there. My game hasn't crashed yet. I think it has something to do with the amount of damage that the enemies take, it only happens when they get DESTROYED with a shotgun and explosive with me.... But then again that didn't happen on my first playthrough. My friend doesn't have the problem so I'm going to compare achievements and tell you what he does not have.

Okay the achievements he dos not have are, "Doing Good", "Sichuan Specialist", and "Most Wanted". He recently just got "You Want Blood?".

Ive been having the same connection problems,although no problems with the campaign. I cleared it twice now and no problems.
Its very frustrating noot being able to connect to a match as i specifically bought this game for the multiplayer.
well, what happens when I search for a match is :
1. It says it looking for a match for around 2 minuites.
2. It then says lobby closing.
3. Then it will buffer.
4.Then it will put me in a lobby by myself and no-one can connect to me.

Ive checked my NAT type and its open, and im able to play other games online like KNL1 and MW2 without any connection problems.

Any help on how to fix this problem would greatly be appreciated thanks. :)

I think Ive found a solution to people having connection problems. I live in Ireland and could not connect to any matches. A person on my friends list said he had no connection problems and lived in france so I changed my xbox locale to France. Now I can connect to games. Hope this helps you guys :)

I'm at the aiport when you find the first plane.....this time it froze for a second or 2 twice using a shotgun this time....the freezing for me always seems to happen twice ...one straight after the other then its fine again???? So thats twicex2 in the whole single player campaign so far.

Other than that I've loved every minute of it.....soon as I've finished it on hard I'm going to play Dead Men again then back to this on extreme then round to my mates for some split screen co-op action.:D:D:D

Seems to be a lot of issue arising :/

I myself really enjoy this game and the series as a whole and fingers crossed for a 3rd K&L (I don't care for the upcoming movie, the castings is way off :S)

I only hope that the Eidos guys are working hard on a patch. Its a shame such a big title suffers from these issues. What I find strange is the freezing bugs tends to turn up on a second playthrough...so...does that mean the testers didn't even play through the game more than once or something?

Regardless of that, I just hope its sorted out soon. Also it would be nice to have an update from Eidos to let us know whats going on.

yup i got the mini freeze alot with headshots and sploding canisters??? for some reason and i got a total freeze when i got my 1000th kill chievo (which was a headshot) couple total freezes on mp too (have to shut off xbox totally)
love the game but needs the guns to be equal to the bad guys on realistic er xtreme..i mean they can knock me down with one shot and it takes 4,5,6 or more shots to knock the same gun carrying guy down...the game is very real feeling at times tho, more so than any other game i've played.

Just wanted to say I am also experiencing some freezing on the
Xbox 360 version but (touch wood) my game hasn't frozen completely yet.

first playthrough (solo, medium, steadycam off) and online etc was all fine, I am now playing it on extreme, solo and steadycam on (though i've had it off to see if it was that and it didn't make any difference) and this time I am experiencing the game 'sticking' or 'pausing' for a second when I shoot some people.
99.9% of time it is with the shotgun, shooting exploding canisters etc also does this and it seems to happen alot with headshots. I shoot and before the enemy is hit the game will freeze for a second as if it has frozen, then, all at once - BOOM it is unfrozen and the enemy is hit or the explosion happens etc

Just thought I would post my experience incase it helps - hope there is a patch soon.

I haven't played it online since this bug started. will try it later.

I was just playing on-line coop on 'Coming Home' as Lynch. I was climbing the stairs when my gun suddenly disappeared, but Lynch's arms still had the gun-holding shape. I would fire but no noise or flash appeared. The recoil motion would still happen and the ammo count would go down, though. The game eventually ended about 2 minutes from connection problem.
This is the first time it's happened to me, but I wanted to report it.

Hi all

We're paying attention to all your concerns and reports and they ARE being routed to QA and tech support. We can't fix everything and we can't fix it by snapping our fingers, sadly, as it's often quite difficult to figure out why a PS3 hard-locks in one chapter but not in another, or why a graphics card on the PC suddenly displays textures in a weird way etc. We ARE trying to figure out a lot of these things but we also need to prioritize among the various reports.

Please keep your reports coming and please provide us with as much detail as possible.

Thanks!

Nick

The freezing has happened on every chapter so far....at least once, third chapter several headshots in a row froze for a second or two.

Uninstalled game and reinstalled to Hd, cleared cache.....same issue on chapter 3 (sweatshop level)

It has happened more already than it did the whole of the first playthrough on Hard.:whistle::whistle::whistle:

Now on Chapter 4 - going to Xui's apartment (the demo level), thought it was just using shotgun with petrol tank upstairs that froze- tried 4 times and let myself die each time- froze 3 of 4 times- petrol tank blows up fine then go to shoot police and it freezes. Tried silenced assault rifle off of SWAT team in restaurant- petrol blows up fine then freezes as well when shooting......I think the mosaic is the problem...trying to calculate whether to show it or not????

Doing my second playthrough now, for fun on Easy. Just noticed the sound for cinematics & in-game scripted events are clearly out of sync.
For instance: at one point, one of the team is axing down a door and the sound of the axe hitting the door comes when he lifts the axe. It has been like this since the very start of my second playthrough. Said example just made it really obvious.

I own a PAL copy of the game. It's installed and played on a Xbox 360 S, 250gig harddrive of which 79gig are in use.

This is a right pain, as I was only around 200 points away from rank 1! I have had no freezes, its worked perfectly up to this point. Is it possible I could get my stats back?

I cant really play it at all, if Im not sure this wont happen again...I cant seem to find anyone who has had the same problem, so its not likely there will be an update to sort it out! ****!

After about a minute it keeps saying "Open tray". I only have this problem with kane&lynce2. I had played kane&lynce1 en that worked great. And all my other games still work. Why is my xbox not reading kane and lynch 2?

please post if you think you have a solution

I second this. I have been receiving this issue for a few days now, after I completed a full playthrough of the single player campaign. It only seems to be when I get headshots, though. This makes it incredibly hard to play the game, as my game is lagging up for three seconds every time I shoot someone in the head.

EDIT: I see that a fix is incoming but I figured I'd add a little more data about my setup if that can help in any way:
Xbox 360 "S" 250GB- three months old
Playing through HDMI to a TV
I experienced the issue both with and without the game installed to my HDD. (Have NOT tried to clear my cache to remove the autoupdate yet, though.)

I hope the patch does come out this week as I have been avoiding playing the single player until it gets fixed, but the multiplayer has keeped me busy.

I see some retailers have dropped the price on this game already after only a WEEK! I paid £32 for mind on release so I don't mind, I guess reviews do make a difference after all :S regardless I love this game. Althought I haven't finished it yet andit may be super short, I don't know.

This thread is for the Xbox 360 version only.

For the PC version, go here (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?p=1474804#post1474804).

Il post this here, the post did get a lot of attention but what hoping for a sticky, seeing this i see its no point. Il post it here and il hope it helps.

----
This list will grow, both with other players contribution and my self.
Please feel free to respond and I will add it to my list.
Add my gamertag : "Elion xTEAMx" and join me online
I pick up new ideas and bugs from people i meet online so feel free to play with me. Most ideas and toughts here are NOT from me but from online players.

I made this list because i love games like this, that stands out from the mainstream boring print and repeat games (cod f.ex) and i would like to improve on the games i feel has a great value, by adding so little to already a extremely good game one can patch a good game to a perfect game.
Not all game developers listens to their fans, but the few that do, they know their line of work. Contribute people! youre making games to just by talking about the game you love on the forums! ^^

It will also greatly help of you point out things you do agree with, then it might get patched.

Tips.
- The game is to simple on normal or lower. I recomend a Hard or Extreme playtrough as its much more intense and one really do fear the enemy then. Makes a better game experience

- This game is no run and gun game its a shooter with intensity in the focus.
The ai WILL react to blind fire and then take cover. So a lot more realistic shooting will suffice.
Think swat and you will survive. you dont have a health bar here ^^



Bug

- Every coperative related bug is related to online and not singelplayer. Might be no bugs like this in splitscreen, and no freezes in singel player yet. Will confirm splitscreen later..
- Coperative has a giant lag issue.
- The human shield/hostage is useless, it dont protect at all in multiplayer OR in singel player and
the cops "reaction" is not present
- The game will freeze sometimes sadly, the only thing i notice is that the controller keeps shaking. It frooze on me under a normal shot beeing fired from a shotgun and once when i threw a gas can.
When the game freezes in coperative it will mostly come back again. but then it stops the coperative server (xbox 360) Installing the game will not fix this.

- The shotgun freeze is already known for most people, but by shooting the shotgun in rapid sequense the game halts. unsure if it disconnect from multiplayer or /and coperative games.
- Freeze problem also present in multiplayer, making one disconnect from the game.
- By some reason on coperative my friend and my self carry weapons on our backs we DONT have in our inventory.. looks specially weird when one have a shotgun put on our back and already have an AK there. There is more to it we found out.some weapons dont show up at all in hand or on back (xbox 360)
-Weapons cant always be seen by the player thats not the host, but the host can se them and pick them up. This is a serious bug that makes the second player hard to play as he runs out of ammo a lot.
- Heavy explosions will STOP the game!! specially the demo level, Even in singel player this happens, in multiplayer it stops the hole server. this is a serious and repeating bug.
Its connected to the amount of things happening, so might be to much for the game engine to handle when i shoot 4 cops at once or i use some form of explosives..


Improvements

- The ending would be a good start! give is a little bit more, cause that was a really bad job! an epilogue ?
- The human shield/hostage is useless, it dont protect at all in multiplayer OR in single player and
the cops "reaction" is not present.
And what good is the throw? any use for it ?
- The rules around cops and robbers miss some details like how and why people find the cop in the group always at once and what a cope has to advantage (if any ? )
- Let us do more things in the lobby, see stats, change character appearance if its added . se rank and weapons and such.
- Whats the point of the silencers? anyone ? should have som advantage, there is also no overview of power and stability and such stats for weapons. The silencer should maybe have some form of "plus" in the game . Even in singel player its useless...
- The masks for the limited version of the game should have a custom character for the online option. so one can choose ones own look and mask and not have it at random. Will everyone be able to download masks later? And what about having more custom choices for the characters so one can choose a look. The player models are there, let us choose who we want to be.
- Where is the total list of earned cash as the first game had? that was a blast.
-The ranking system is confusing and lacks an overview, not all of them is actually known to all what is "good" and "bad".
- There is talk about a ranking but , unkown for now, but it seems some people are losing rank, I my self think its a game design to lose rank when one play bad. Some mean that is not the case, any official word?
-I do miss the M4 and the more classical guns to, the asian weapons give a more feeling of beieng cheap and not fun to use. Its like using a old axe in a roleplaying game while one rather want the golden one as mentioned by a fellow player^^
- When in coperative and trying to revive a friend if there is a gun lying around close to the downed player the player cannot be revived cause the gun takes the action of swapping in stead of choosing to prioritize the revive action.

- There is no system link for coperative gameplay this could fix some players problems with lag in coperative.
- The x that apears on every hit one have should have a on and off switch in the option screen also the blood should have a bit larger effect
Also the headshot that sometimes makes the face "blooped" or what one call it is not actually any fun, it just looks odly weird , i know its the hand held camera style but still.

I cant really play it at all, if Im not sure this wont happen again...I cant seem to find anyone who has had the same problem, so its not likely there will be an update to sort it out! ****!

Yea my stats reset when i was nearly rank 3, any info from staff regarding a patch or any solution to this problem, i don't really wanna waste hours to have them reset again.

The campaign is pretty much unplayable until they patch the freezing glitch.

How did all of these issues not come up during the games testing period? Were they busy giving each other piggy back rides, and just putting it off telling each other
"Come on! When has one of our games had bugs...." :hmm:

After putting around 20 hours into the game, I've encountered the freezing glitch after making a headshot. It happens with every single gun now, not just shotguns like originally. I really hope that this is fixed soon, because the single player portion of my game is practically unplayable now.

Also, sometimes during the single player campaign, whenever I push the d-pad to see a point of interest, the camera focuses on Kane instead. I noticed this outside of Brady's apartment during the first mission when replaying the campaign.

Online co op is ridiculously laggy.

Online multiplayer is laggy for me as well.

My new dlc achievements aren't being included in my gamerscore.

Absolutely loving the game though. I hope you guys iron these things out because I can see myself putting hundreds of hours into playing Dog Days and convincing my friends to buy it. Very addicting. ;)

HEADSHOT = FREEZING

Particularly shotguns.
I'm sure you've received this complaint before.

I only play this game co-op with my brother, and the game is practically useless without a patch. It's been two weeks now and I'm a little pissed off.

Patch soon or I'm giving up on this damn franchise.

I still can't help think of how Nintendo handled the game killing bug in Super Paper Mario for the Nintendo Wii, not only did they recall the game and release a fixed version, but also anyone who had the bugged version could ring Nintendo to get a replacement disc that was also fixed.

K&L2 has been out for over 2 weeks now, The was known about just before its PAL release (I don't know about the US) the bug is the worse I've seen in a console game for a long time, plus why haven't we heared anything from Eidos for a few days? I'm pissed I pay full price for this now, at first I was willing to forgive it, but with no patch and little feedback from Eidos I feel cheated.

I like the franchise, but something like this puts you off buying a third K&L or any other Eidoes game for that matter, remember Tomb Raider AOD bugs anyone? ouch.

I already sold my copy and got $25 back. This is ridiculous, I feel sorry for the people who don't have online. Reminds me of condemned 2 for ps3, it had a very annoying sound bug. Sega released a patch a month later, but atleast they gave kept weekly feedback and they let you download the patch to a cd for the people who don't have online for their consoles...eidos, are you listening? I'll get the game when it goes down to $20. I think I deserve that much since I bought the first one for $60. And seriously, who tests these games anyway!?

Haha, how much do you guys want to bet that it's a problem with the disc and they would have to recall everyone's copy in order to fix it, at this point in time I believe that's more than likely what it is.

Had a massive freeze tonight, just shoot a canister and it look like my Xbox was going to blow up! jeez please get this fixed! I quit out the game just as that happen and had to laugh at the DLC message passing buy, you expect me to buy more of this game when its in such bad shape and I've already lay money down for it.

Well at this point there is no way that I could recommend this game to a friend, as much as I love the game. Campaign is unplayable due to the freezing and the multiplayer lag is ridiculous.

If the freezing issue isn't fixed soon, I'll be trading in my copy so that I can at least get some money out of it.

I really hope that these issues get fixed soon. This was my most anticipated title for 2010. :(

Yeah, we're pretty sure we nailed this one - it's achievement related. The patch is in submission with MS at the moment and we expect it out next week. Hopefully, it will fix the issue which is quite clearly a pain in the ass.

Mmmm...this is a little misleading I think Nick, you haven't actually said what the patch does and also what you do mean 'hopefully'? as in you haven't even tested the patch?

Anyway Microsoft still haven't released this so called patch, I wonder if there even is one or this is come BS to stop us complaining to Eidos, Bottom line is...can I just have the fixed product I paid my hard earn cash for?

I'll admit to sounding harsh, but thats because I am a little peed off about it all, like many other folks I was really looking forward to this game and this bug is just a horrible joke.

K&L 2 is a good game and would be worth full price, no question asked, but this bug takes all that away.

I'm telling you, watch, it'll probably be something they can't patch. I'll bet it actually had something to do with the way it was made/and or manufactured.

Well I've sold my copy of K&L2, not just because of this horrible bug, but overall I felt it to be a worst game than the first, it seems like just because they 'sorted' out the shooting in this one, Eidos thought it would be lots of fun to threw bads guy after bad guys on you, when it just gets annoying. Also unlike the first game which did a great job of changing the environments you were in, each level feels the same.

The multiplayer was fun, but had problems, like why the hell can't I choose what mask I want to wear!? anyway it isn't worth keeping it for that either.

I got £20 for it and only paid £32 so thats not a huge loss, I can't believe I defended this game! however I will be checking in just to see the what is happening with the patch and if Eidos actually were B/Sing.

While I don't feel entitled to an answer from them, I payed $60.00 dollars plus tax for this game, I do think they can make sounds with their mouths to form words and eventually sentences and explain what's going on. I honestly think it's something that can't be fixed, and if they would just say "We can't fix it." I wouldn't be as pissy as I am now. I haven't been playing the game because of this issue.
