The Feeble Files

  • If you take a picture of the Tourist in the Zoo, with the camera on maximum flash, run to the door and talk to the Tourist again (after returning the camera), a duplicate Tourist will occur.
  • The screen isn't scrolled far enough to the left side, after calling the repair man to fix the car, which causes a slight glitch as camera is adjusted before cutscene starts. *
  • Problem: Repeating cutscene when talking to Molly after first “cool” conversation.

Reproduction: Load save game in Ministry. You must not have talked in any way to Molly before. Use normal Charisma X pills, try to go past Molly, talk to her again.

  • Problem: Male phone talk stops when listening to him.

Reproduction: Go to Dave’s space bar on the beginning, stand next to Dave and listen to him.
Details: The bug seems to be there because of a missing if-check that was done for every other part of conversation of Feeble’s friend.

  • Problem: Big circuitry boards can be combined with anything, thus causing the board the action was done with to disappear which makes the game uncompleteable.

Reproduction: Look at one of the two robots to get access to their interior side. Take one big circuitry board. Go to Oracle. Combine big circuitry board with anything else (board must be selected first).
Wanted solution: Feeble should instead say one of the three random “doesn’t work” messages which are used for common wrong combinations at that point:
1) “Even using my new rebel training I fail to see how that's possible.” (3560) 9330
2) “I see no way of getting any sort of result out of that.” (3363) 9331
3) “There's no point.” (4077) 9332
Side note: Combining the small circuitry boards also doesn’t give the correct “doesn’t work” phrases. Would be nice if that could be fixed, too, though it is a very small unimportant issue.

Issues specific to 4CD versions

  • Feeble walks in the incorrect direction, when looking at the Vent in the Research and Testing area of the Company Central Command Compound.
  • Problem: Game crash when going out of the tunnel.

Reproduction: Go into the tunnel in the maintenance area. Walk one movie segment forward (click move forward, not just wait for the standard walking at the beginning) and two segments backward.

Issues specific to Italian version

  • Glitch caused by invalid character, when viewing The Company section of Oracle. *

Features which were removed in the Amiga and Macintosh versions
