Can't see Friend Orbs

#1 Posted by gla55jAw (2685 posts) -

I have 1 friend on my friend's list who was playing the game, I wanted to gift him some weapons, and guess what, we were both in the same area and couldn't see eachother's orbs (we tried a bunch of places) what an annoying glitch. Happen to anyone else?

That's weird. Are your sure your friend wasn't lying to you?

Are the friend orbs enabled in the options?

Yes...try this.

I think they are automatically set to that, are you sure you are both in the same place? Make sure your friend has set the options, too.

I thought I remembered it being set to off on default...you could try reloading the game. At one point I couldn't see any orb at all, but others could apparently see me.

When I went to go check mine for the first time, they will set to on automatically.

I was actually gone start a thread about this one but nevertheless I am having problems seeing people online too...that is when I first load up the game I see them; the orbs,  but when i load up different areas the orbs aren't there anymore. I have to exit the game and then restart it to see the orbs..am I the only person who is having this problem?

yea we both had them set to friends only. this game seems to have way too many glitches

The only thing I can think of is you're at a part in the story/quest that doesn't allow you to see other orbs or sleep. That happened to me a few times. And I haven't had any bugs at all. Best your primary/active quests then try again.
