Too much cheese? (a bug?)

posted by Luicas on - last edited - Viewed by 655 users
I have dropped one Wensleydale on top of the bee hive and have gorgonzola in my inventory. But I have also picked up another piece of wensleydale so I can't get the mouse moving because there seems to be no way of getting rid of the piece in my inventory or dropping the gorgonzola on top of the hive since there is already some cheese. Is this a bug in the game or what am I suppose to do?

  • I did the jail break earlier. I can carry only one piece of wensleydale at a time but it seems I can always pick up some in endless supply from the ground next to the puddle in front of the shop and also at some point the police man dropped some cheese when he came to the station door (can't remember if it was wensleydale or gorgonzola). This is happening while playing Gromit when Wallace is on the phone. I am running the game on 64bit Vista, which is an unsupported platform...
  • I also have this cheese bug and there doesn't seem to be any way of getting rid of the extra cheese. I got rid of the bees everywhere except the basement and the dog will no longer go up into the hive even though I can clearly see the cheese I threw down onto the hive next to the music player.
  • Hey guys, I'm going to move this thread over to Support since this sounds like a bug. I don't think Gromit should be able to pick up a second piece of Wensleydale.
  • Fwiw, I too was able to get two pieces of cheese but never had to use the second for anything.
  • We are currently looking into why you were able to pick up a second piece. The game should not have allowed you to. Currently the only way around this is to load a save before you picked up a second piece.
  • Ah, I see. Hrmm ...

    You don't, by any chance, have a repository of saved games somewhere, one of which might do the job? I've looked around Google with no luck.

    I love the game, but I'd rather not replay it from the beginning. :)
  • I just encountered this bug in the Xbox Arcade version... I was loving the game up until this point, and it seems you cannot manually save in the xbox version. So, my only option is to restart the game from the beginning? Bummer. I think I will take a break for awhile before retrying again, unless there is some other way around this? I do not really feel like starting from scratch all over again.

    EDIT: well, I started the game over. I was having so much fun I couldn't resist. It actually only took me about 20 mins to start over and get to this point again. Skipping thru the dialog cutscenes made it super quick. And, I nabbed an achievement I missed the 1st time thru (the '3x bee sting one'). The game was great. Unfortunately, I am sure a lot of Xbox users are going to run into this glitch. And with no ability to save manually and reload before the glitch kicks in, forcing you to start over, I am sure there will be many who will get angry and give up... Hopefully this doesn't effect too many people's decision to purchase and play the next 3 installments.
