    Official K&L2:DD Issues thread (360 edition)

    I suggest posting all technical issues you're experiencing with the game here. Be specific. I want the devs to help everyone out.

    This thread is for the Xbox 360 version only.
    For the PS3 version, go here.
    For the PC version, go here.

    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.

    Question Multiplayer Connection Issues

    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

    The AI almost never seems to pick up all the loot, and the game does mini freezes.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    4th chapter single player

    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

    why isnt the dlc of the limited edition version working???? where ae my weapons and why does it say i need downloadable content to use them when i clearly have just downloaded it??? please get back to me sharpish!

    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?".

    Why doesn't the Alpha Male achievement work. And when you get it working, I'd like it automatically since I've completed the damn thing a few times now.

    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
    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

    In the campaign every time I shoot someone in the head or blow up a canister them game does a mini freeze. Doesn't matter what level.

    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.

    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.
