“The Signal” Crashing/Run On Sentence Unobtainable

11 posts in this topic

For the last few days, ive been trying to obtain Run on Sentence, for completing the DLC in one run without continuing/dying.”, however the game keeps crashing. Ive looked up some other posts on Reddit/Gamefaqs and other users are having similar issues. Also, Ive tweeted the game’s Twitter account to help bring notice to this issue. Is anyone else having this issue? Any work-arounds available? Not sure if this is an issue on PS5.

 

my assumption is that it is a loading issue. Ive crashed in several places where the game is loading in enemies/doing the “shifts” where the environment is changing (said by the story). Popular places my game crashes are the furnace basement of the church, the “streetlight graveyard” area, and around the outside church area. These are areas a lot of enemies spawn conuously.

Had no issue with this on PS5 personally, but there's a suggestion in the guide on this site that a run through the "Writer DLC" has seemingly fixed the issue for some people.

 

Failing that, try running the game unpatched.  That helped other people.

Yep, I’m having this issue as well. Currently reinstalling the game without a patch to try again, as the solution for continuing on with The Writer and then coming back to The Signal didn’t work for me.

Please let me know if this works for you.

When I did this I did it on ps4 and without patches, in addition to this I was disconected from the network (Turned internet off) as the internet was bad. It might be worth a shot, this idea has not been confirmed and as such not added to the guide. Hopefully this can help someone.

It didn’t seem to work at first as it kept crashing, but after a few more tries and a couple console restarts I managed to fix the crashing bug and was able to progress past the crash area 3 times in a row.

 

I posted more details in the other thread: 

 

I hope that helps you and you can get the trophy too. Good luck!

Were you able to get the trophy, @dieselmanchild


Yes, I was able to fix the crashing bug and got the trophy.
 

If you need more details, check out the link I posted above. I outlined the fix in the other Alan Wake forum thread regarding this bug.

As of the newest update for PS4, I am still unable to get this trophy. Game still crashes near church (it once even crashed when entering the bathroom in the beginning!).

 

I’ve deleted the game data and played on base disc version but this method also does not work for me. I believe I’m just gonna give up on this. How a game this old cannot have the simple ability to just “work” on newer consoles is baffling.

I'm sorry to hear this. Just to spit ball some ideas Can I ask;

 

What system are you using? If on ps4 and using a pro see if changing boost mode helps. Also if you have a ps5 download the ps4 build to the system, having more power might correct the issue.

 

It shouldn't be crashing there and is very odd as I never had one crash on both versions. I'm sorry you had this happen.

 

I would say dont give up hope!

I’m playing the PS4 version on a PS5. I’ve tried it with no patch and with the most recent update. I’ve tried playing it several times over to see if persistence was key. I’m currently working on the PS5 version as well, as I’ve heard this version has 0 issues with these trophies. It’s just the PS4 version.
