Potentially platinum-breaking bug: chest key disappears if you leave level

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I'd like to report what I think is a potentially platinum-breaking bug.

 

A couple of days ago I was playing Tree Tops level. I picked up the treasure chest key, and after some minutes I had to turn off the PS4.

 

This morning, when I started the level, I saw that the key was not in my inventory anymore, so I thought I'd find it in its original place, but it wasn't there.

 

I tried to restart the level, to change world and start it again, but nothing changed: the key is disappeared.

 

This won't allow me to open the treasure chest and complete the game 100%.

 

I don't know if it's a recurring behavior, but in doubt DON'T LEAVE the level if you have the key in the inventory.

 

Hope that helps :)

Ouch that sounds like it really sucks since you will have to replay the whole game again for platinum. You could try and finish the game since there shouldn't be that many levels remaining, but either start a new playthrough or move onto Spyro 2 and 3, then replay Spyro later. You won't miss much since Gnasty Gnorc won't reappear again. Unless you count the Gnasty Gnorc Skateboarding trick. On the plus side of starting a new playthrough, since you know where everything is, shouldn't take that long to reach Treetops again.

Something strange happened for me. The key never spawned in the first place! I crashed the chest with superspeed from one of those ramps to break it. Have 500/500 gems collected.

RLGN is right, if there's a way you can reach the locked box with a super charge ( I believe you could as far as I know ) you can actually break the chest without the key, sometimes I do this for fun in some levels but the key will disappear once you exit the level.

This is a known bug. I think it's if you quite out via the ps4, or turning off the PS4, rather than the in game level quit option. Feel very lucky I didn't do this as it is a bad habit of mine.
