Fix Viewfinder Ending Bug Report (Needed Game Restart)
the mysteries left behind. In this game, players embark on a thrilling adventure filled with puzzles and challenges
to progress through the levels and discover the secrets hidden within.
The Bug Report
I wanted to report a bug, possibly two separate bugs, in the final level of the game. I will try to describe it
Upon entering the cage, I somehow managed to end up partially clipped into the floor. I was still able to reach
the level, so I clicked on it. However, I ended up falling through the floor, resulting in a black screen with a
white dot in the middle. Unfortunately, I couldn’t hear Cait’s penultimate dialogue at this point, although I
could still read it through the subtitles. Realizing something had gone wrong, I couldn’t enter the final
teleporter, and eventually figured out that I needed to restart the level using the Esc menu.
Upon reaching that point again, the floor clipping issue did not reoccur. However, upon interacting with the
final teleporter, the game locked up. Cait’s final lines did not play, and the camera did not pan up to them. I
tried restarting the level through the Esc menu, but nothing worked. The only solution was to force close and
reopen the game. I suspect this latter bug may be its own bug related to restarting the final level using the Esc
menu within the final room.
It is clear that the ending of the game has a bug which requires a complete game restart to resolve. This
inconvenience can cause frustration for players who have invested time and effort into completing the game.
Resolving this bug is essential to ensure a smooth and enjoyable gaming experience for all players.
Fix Partial Floor Clipping
The first bug, where the player ends up partially clipped into the floor upon entering the cage, should
be addressed. This issue could potentially be resolved by adjusting the collision detection in that
specific area or by implementing a check to ensure the player’s position is correctly aligned with the
Unlock Interaction with Final Teleporter
The second bug, where the game locks up upon interacting with the final teleporter, should also be
fixed. This issue prevents players from progressing further and completing the game. Developers should
investigate the trigger for this bug and ensure that all required assets and animations are properly
loaded and executed when interacting with the final teleporter.
Esc Menu Restart Fix
Furthermore, it is important to address the issue with restarting the final level through the Esc menu.
Currently, this option does not work properly, and players are left with no other choice than to force
close and reopen the game. Developers should examine the code responsible for level restart and ensure it
functions correctly in all situations.
Viewfinder is an exciting game that offers players a unique and immersive experience. However, the presence of
ending-related bugs hinders players from fully enjoying the game’s conclusion. By fixing the floor clipping
issue, unlocking interaction with the final teleporter, and addressing the Esc menu restart problem, developers
can enhance the overall game experience and provide a satisfying ending for players.
