View Full Version : Encount Error?

20th Oct 2002, 08:28
The weirdest thing just happened... I am walking around in the area after you help Aeris escape the church, and I saved it there. I just loaded my game and started walking around, but every time I try it, I enter a random encounter shortly after.

This is where it gets weird. The monster I'm fighting looks like a golden pyramid, and it says "ENCOUNT ERROR" along the top. It then says "If you see this, call the staff". Then something along the lines of "Monster, that's too bad". I couldn't seem to kill it either.

Then, when I run away, I'm put out on the overworld map (!) way out in the water in the NW corner.

How can I fix this?

that's a new one on me. unless you've been playing in the degub room.... you appear to have some defective saves. try another or I'll send you some.

I've had that error once, too. At the very beginning, on the train station. A black background and a pyramid (the one being cast by Reno on the support pillar battle) says: "A monster, thats too bad"...

I still don't know how it happened though, it could be defective savegames.

Kinda sounds like an easter egg.
