Player two cannot use gate scrolls!  Reply with quote  

When first player dies, player two cannot use a gate scroll and must revive player one with a save point. Why the heck is this? If the deaths happen vice versa it works fine.

Thats incorrect. I've always been able to do this, whether online or off. The only thing I can think is that player 1 had all the gate scrolls. When player 2 tried to gate, it didn't work as there were no scrolls available.

Yea, the player that does use the gate scroll has to have it in their inventory. You don't get to share them.

...actually  Reply with quote  

I've -always- had 10-20 gate scrolls in my inventory, and every time (about a dozen all told) I've tried to use a gate scroll after player 1 has died, it won't let me.

When I have died (player 2), player 1 can always gate scroll to their heart's content.

When player 1 dies, player 2 is forced to walk home, or find the nearest teleport checkpoint.

hmmmm...  Reply with quote  

Could it have to do with starting a single player game, and then importing player 2, versus starting a game with 2 players?

If I remember right, the only game where I tried to gate scroll as player 2 when player 1 had died (many many times) before I gave up on it, was a game where my character was imported as player 2 into a single player game.

I'll have to try in my 2-player champion mode game, which was started with both characters imported at the start, and see if I can gate scroll as player 2 when player 1 is dead.

Possible solution...  Reply with quote  

I read on another board that the problem with player 2 being unable to gate scroll when player 1 is dead... can be solved by using the 'square'+'select' method of gating. I will verify this later.. but hopefully that explains why it doesn't affect anyone (probably just those of us who go in through the menu to gate).

Well hopefully the square-select solution works. I never thought about trying that actually. As for the importing thing you were talking about, i don't think that's the reason. I started a brand new game with my friend and it happened. We were both wizards and there was no importing whatsoever.

Yesterday I was playing a 3 player game with a couple friends on the multitap. I died for the first time in god knows how long very far away from a save point or a portal, murphy's law ya know. Well, needless to say when either of my friends tried to use their gate scrolls it said they cannot gate from there, and i am sure we were not in a postion in the game where the gate function is disabled due to combat/escort/etc. So I think you may be onto something, but i DON'T know if its a glitch. It may be intentional. Not everything that isn't liked about this game is a glitch. =0)

Well i was playing the game with my friend again last night and he tried the "hold square and press select" method and it worked. You still can't use it from the menu though which is sort of odd, but i guess that is the way around the quirk.
