Talk about a bad glitch. >_<

(Operation Crimson Daze) So I got close to the end of this mission and before I opened the door to fight these guys; they fell through the world. So I literaly cannot attack them. So I guess my only option is to return my guys to extraction and abort the mission? This mission occurs after you shoot down a story specific aircraft. Before I breached the door to descover these guys I threw a tracker in there first, so perhaps that caused the glitch?

Tough luck. Plenty of glitches in this game, sadly :/

There are no glitches in XCOM. The aliens just discovered phase shifting after visiting Mars

@JohnSublime: My Hover SHIVs had the ability to get stuck in geometry.

@AcidBrandon18: Are you playing iron man or normal? Can you not reload ?

No, I've had glitching through the world issues and I've never taken the scanner/tracker/whatever you want to call it route. Generally it only happens when I've killed an enemy and his body goes carreening into grey nothingness (at which point the camera takes a good 30 seconds to pan back up to the world). This specific game-stopper only happened to me once though... and I think it was during my first non-Ironman playthrough because I just reloaded from the save before the mission.

Uhm, can you abort mission on these major story missions and retry? I admit I've never attempted to abort a mission.

I'm pretty sure the game autosaves before the start of every mission if you aren't playing on Iron Man. That's assuming you have autosaves turned on.

Terror from the Deep strikes early

@Arabes: I'm playing normal ironman so no reloading. I just evaced me guys out of there and started to research the advanced arc thrower because I guess I had to catch an alien in that room. Hopefully the mission will pop up again and I can continue on with the story.

The game froze up on me right at the final boss. I had to go through that mission all over again.

Has there been a major patch after the first (which WEIRDLY didn't address hardly any glitches)? Cause my game glitched out in the final area when the Thin Men wouldn't spawn, and therefore a door wouldn't open and I just ragequit and refused to go back since.

@AcidBrandon18: Fuck Ironman. If they can't be bothered to make a game that works then that mode is worthless. I'm not going to lose my game because of bugs, sorry.

@Undeadpool: I think there's been three patches but there are still a lot of bugs. The cosmetic ones don't bother me so much (occasionally spotting guys through walls or shooting through geometry) but the game breaking ones (mass teleporting aliens, turns not ending, freeze ups) bug the shit out of me casue they can totally fuck you if you play on iron man.
