Bugs in game

Chapter 4: After you put the code in the fuse box in the basement do not follow the ghost because after the battle the game will crash with this error: "BackPatch - no support for operand size 1" "Error encountered accessing emulated address 21251086...Culprit instruction: movzx eax, byte ptr ds:[rbx+rcx] at 0000000014e1e17f READ: Invalid address: 292518e5" To avoid it follow this instructions:

  • Put the code to turn on the elevator ¡DO NOT FOLLOW THE GHOST TO THE NEXT ROOM!
  • Go upstairs to the elevator and approach to it, see the short cutscene
  • Now go down to fight the ghost, the game will not crash this time.
