Plan on playing a bug-free Bully on the PC? Too bad!

#1 Posted by License_To_Bill (792 posts) -

I bought it on Steam and have crashed eight or nine times within an hour. Usually from moving locations, once from running, and now I can't even get past the Rockstar logo without it exploding in my face.

A patch would be nice.

huh,  i just bought it on the iiw.

also; there nothing worse than utterly shitousted buggy crashing games on the pc.  anyone for some gears of war profanity?!

at least if they patch it, it will work directly through steam so you wont have to worry about it too much.

What the hell, man. Those guys at Mad Doc have done everything possible to ruin Rockstar Vancouver's Bully.
It's got to be a port of the 360 version, right? Mad Doc is the PC developer responsible for the Empire Earth games, so it makes sense that they would just port over their 360 code.
But what the hell?!

Looks like the wii version is still the way to go. Although I had the 360 version and Didn't have nearly as many problems as other people were. It only crashed once on me through the whole game.

The original one is fine, and the schollarship for the Wii too. And I thought that the 360 version had been patched already, but I could be mistaken.

The Wii version wasn't too great on the technical side either. I'd say it's best to just get it on the PS2.

so in conclusion.....all the additional takes on the game (to make more money for the company) are actually less playable than the original?!  thats abit ridiculous/hilarious. 

Im finding the wii one fine though at the mo.

I am playing it on the PC at the moment. My issue isnt the bbugs its the weird optimisation, for about 2 minutes it'll run at a very nice fps, then it will stutter no matter what. It is not my hardware because this periodical stuttering even happens when im playing on the arcade machine.

Its still playable mind you.

So far I'm 3 missions into the game and no crash yet , I don't have the Steam version I have the Procyon version and so far it is working fine.

I never crashed or had problems once on the 360 version. Ever. I don't know why so many people had technical problems. It's definitely the best system to get Bully on.

I've got the game on both the PS2 and Wii. The Wii version does crash but it's quite rare. Sometimes I would play the game for 3 hours or so without saving and then the whole screen would freeze up. I thought it was something wrong with my disc but someone else I knew who had Bully for the Wii had the same problems.

I can't believe that there's still no patch for the PC version.
