The Shy Kid--Chapter 1

When I'm in the Copper Junction area, a shy kid asks for help going over to talk to some kids. So, I don't know what I'm doing or how to do it, but when I try, there's a point where I go in front of the left kid in the triangle of three, and the girl advances one pace... at which point you're stuck in place as the music plays and the girl doesn't move any more. Am I missing something obvious, or is it some sort of bug/etc? 


(Despite that, by the way, really enjoying the story.)

Hi Laurent, 

Thank you for reporting this! This is some sort of bug; I've encountered it myself when I was trying to make my video walkthrough.

I'm not quite sure how or why it's occurring, and I sat down tonight to try to replicate the bug, but couldn't successfully do it; tonight it was working fine. 

When you stand in front of the one girl, Latoya, it IS supposed to automatically trigger the rest of the quest. But for some reason, Abigail (the shy little girl) gets stuck. 

My hunch is that it might have something to do with your player followers. When I initially programmed this quest, I turned off the player followers (Carmen, and Candace if you added her too) and it's possible that Abigail can't walk through them, even though they're transparent. 

If you haven't tried it already, try walking the LONG way around the playground slide, instead of moving down and hitting that spot directly in front of Latoya. You might have more success that way. 

Till I can figure out how to replicate this again and identify a better way around it, I would try reloading the game, or if possible, restarting from an earlier safe point? 

If that doesn't work, don't worry. Marquis, who is one of the football players (he wants to join the dance team), has a bugged quest where you can get MULTIPLE hearts after completing it. So if you can't get Abigail's heart, talk to Marquis twice, and he will give you one. 

I'm so sorry about this bug! 

It's fine, as long as I'm able to wind up with enough to get the best ending or whatnot. Thus far I've missed... at least two, and I think more, Hearts? At least one of the Hearts was because the Kelly scene is somewhat similarly bugged? Once you solve it everyone wanders off but you're stuck standing there. I'm hoping I'll be able to get what I need despite that, since I've actually moved on past that area. 


Still, bugs are what happens in a game. At least you're not Bethesda. :P

I suppose this is more just a general question, and obviously getting back with every question on an already released game isn't really feasible, but if you're at 54 Hearts by the School Graduation, are you on point?

...I also wound up having no idea how to get some of the Hearts[1], but hopefully that's fine. If you found everything in one playthrough, well...

[1] For instance, it felt like I made the right choices with both Glenda and RJ at graduation, but I didn't get Hearts from either of them, so... I dunno?
