Fable 3 Xbox 360: List of Problems after Release?

By Updated on

As many of you will already be aware, Fable III is now available to buy on the Xbox 360 in the US. After having a chance to play for a few hours, have you discovered any notable problems that we should know about?

As far we’re aware, some gamers have been having problems trying to get the Village Maker DLC to work with the game, but we understand that the problem has now been fixed and it is working as normal.

We’ve had a look at some of your feedback on the net for the game, and you’ll be pleased to hear that the only problems we’ve read about is a few issues with framerate, which obviously isn’t a major problem.

It is a stark contract to Fallout: New Vegas which has been plagued with problems since the game went on sale last week, but early signs are good for Fable III.

Have you spotted any problems with the game so far? Share your thoughts below. Don’t forget to check out our review round-up thread as well, including this dodgy review from Destructoid.

  • Annoyed

    My only problem with it is that it wasn't delivered on the release date as Gamestop guaranteed it would be.

    • issiah

      That happend to me to, i was very upset when it didnt come.

      • Harry

        i live in london, and i preorderd the game on amazon (UK version which is meant to come out on the 29th) and yet it came today ! Even before it was released !!

        • http://www.facebook.com/rakibm1 Rakib Meah

          lucky!!!!

      • mckracken

        i got the 1 day order but it said 1 day for shipping and 1 day for processing sooo

    • fillal

      Yep, me too.

    • bakura

      only problem is tat it lags a bit sometimes when u travel through da city…

    • XdrewskiX

      My butler Jasper who supposedly has thousands of lines stopped talking altogether after i completed the first alliance quests with The Dwellers. Anyone else? Can I get this problem addressed? Still a few bugs in Fable III? Maybe needs a patch?

  • Justin

    I'm in love with this game! Peter M, you are a rock star!

  • Jessica

    could be better. alot of frame work is wrong, lags, and not to mention how they seemed to miss the glitches in the backrounds and when you kill certain enemies.

  • Cody

    Best game of 2010 so far I can almost smell the GOTY edition

  • Danny

    Sometimes it lags when I'm playing lute hero, which makes me miss. Otherwise, it's excellent!

    • Karen

      Ditto. The only real problems I'm noticing are in the same vein: few points of lagging, skipping, oh and the dog will often just stand in the middle of the road barking about dig spots and ultimately go nowhere, but maybe that's just my impatience.

  • Batty Kissinger

    In co-op, do not interact with the other player while going through a cullis gate, or you will get stuck in the previous environment with the gate deactivated. And frame rate is awfully shakey in co-op.

  • Jack Hooper

    Just finished the story and know all the people are missing whats going on?

    • Joe

      hey everyone died because you didnt put enough money in the bank. restart and goto the demon door that asked to see a king and in a tresure chest is 10,000,000,000 dollars

      • Allan

        It's not ten billion. It's one million. That's not enough to even get you out of debt if you played the 'good' king during the year before the attack. So I suggest you buy property with the one million, especially shops, in order to generate income. Right now I make about 1.5 million an hour ( 125,000 every 5 minutes).
        That will quickly allow you to get out of debt and save all 6.5million of your people.

  • Adam

    I noticed a glitch when I make pies, When I throw the pie doe down, it's floating in the air next to me and I miss putting the dough on the actual pie. Obviously not effecting me much, Iit just was just visually unpleasant.

  • OleVlad

    I did see lag in co-op. When doing the Black Smith Job I couldn't see the A which made it hard to release on time. The angle was wrong.

  • Scrump

    My sanctuary pause menu is glitched. Once I hit pause at any time I can’t get out for some reason

    • http://twitter.com/imarikurumi @imarikurumi

      im having the same issue :(

      • Jesse

        yeah thats happening to me and the butler dosent say anything at all.

    • Brandon

      its really pissing me off lol i cant equip neew weapons or anythin cause i keep having to restart

    • kinectedgamer

      Yeah same issue here, I enter into the sanctuary and you are supposed to be able to press start and get out, I can't, so I have to fast travel, removing me from my current location just to get out. Also when I'm in the middle of a main quest mission and do it, it locks me in the sanctuary allowing me not to leave, bummer, I know so I have to exit the game, restart it and load my last save.

      • chris

        did u ever figure out how to fix it?? i dnt want to have to start over….im almost done with the game

    • Brian

      same problems here. get it together lionhead

    • scott

      same ere get stuck there and when i go the pick somewhere on the map i get stuck there and is sez i cant fast travel until i complete my quest but i cant exit the map. iv paid 40 quid on this game and its well crap. needs to b sorted now

  • http://www.facebook.com/xavier.yrausquin Xavier H Yrausquin Jr.

    It works great for me, so excited. The Game Rocks!!!

    • Nate

      DLC never works across profiles, it's tied to your gamer profile that you activated it on. You can't assign it to multiple accounts.

  • Wyld

    Other than the Gamestop DLC *and* the included DLC not working across multiple profiles on the same machine?

    • Nate

      DLC is tied to your gamer profile, you can't have it attached to multiple accounts even if they are on the same Xbox.

    • Rachel

      Same thing here…and I bought the dye pack DLC that is also not working on anyone else's profile but mine. I refuse to spend more money so everyone can use what they're already supposed to be able to use anyway. Frustrating to say the least.

  • J_snizzap

    village maker works…. worked perfectly first time i connected xbox live silver… that first update for your game was when it put em in, like the site says its up to you when you run into him, my only problem was best buy didnt give me the card for the pre order sword….

    • ChrisLF

      I thought I had the same problem with Gamestop, but what I didn't realize was, the pre order code isn't given on a card. It's on your receipt from when you did the actual pre order. If you don't have that, then you might want to call them and ask if they can look it up. Gamestop was able to do this for me, thank goodness!

    • Jayk

      My buddy had the same issue, it still hasn't been resolved. When I spoke to the people at Best Buy about it they all seemed confused or didn't understand what it was they were being asked about.

  • Fable Fan

    Ok let me say I love this game. Though the small problems kind of add up. As has been already mentioned frame rate lag is there, but its not ALWAYS present, just most of the time. Again, already mentioned, background images cut in an out, like they're noticeable loading. Another thing that bothered me was the dog "dig spots" (way worse than last game so far). I have found some neat items really early in the game but a few times i've almost just ignored my dog all together. He will run around in a circle even after you come to him and my favorite, you can be standing on a noticeable dig spot and it will take him a few seconds to realize it (maybe he's a less intelligent breed, jk -.-). Last thing, this isn't really a problem just something that irked me a bit. The menu interface, specifically with activating quests, requires more work than necessary (some players may find this refreshing). AGAIN I love this game, just a few small problems for the problem page!

  • Makior

    when I got married in the game, neither myself nor my partner were shown on the scren, we were both invisible but you could still hear the audio

  • hellllppp

    HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPP, IM STUCK IN THE CESSPOOLS WHEN YOU RESCUE THE MANS WIFE, IM STUCK IN THE WATER AND CANT MOVE, I CAN DO NOTHING. WHAT DO I DO??/

    • hereishellllppp

      Try pressing start and going to the sanctuary?
      Then go to the map and fast travel to somewhere.
      You might have to reload the quest though.

      • Alice

        I'm also frozen with some of my companions in a corner behind a building. They followed me in and are so close, I can't get them to move so I can get out. Nothing works. I can get back to Sanctuary, but the map won't let me fast travel. If I try to reload the quest, again, it won't let me fast travel.

  • Colin

    In the quest "The Game" in the Bowerstone Market, my game became irreversibly glitched and I will probably have to restart my game. I noticed other players have had problems with this quest as well.

    • Theo

      same problem and its ruined this game for me, don't think i will play it again, my only save ( because u can only have one save per hero & it frickin loads me in the middle of nowhere.. im button mashing to try and stand up to go back to the sanctuary but no luck

    • Zac

      Same here. Lionhead really needs to get their act together and fix this sort of bug before their games are released. And the way they have required you to have only one save for your game doesn't allow the player to work around these types of problems.

      VERY poor programming.

    • amanda briscoe

      i can't through a gate in lightwater village, it's so annoying i really don't want to have to restart.

    • thc butterz

      im stuck in the quest "the game" 2 im suposed to walk up to the tower but nothing happens and i cant open the tower door, cant fast travel or anything tried reloading the game and everything just stuck this game is glitched

    • http://www.facebook.com/shenaku Rachel Grace Thompson

      I am in the same thing. It started I couldn't even start the quest because it wouldn't show the A green button signal above the wizards head and then I turned the game off for awhile, went back and it was there all of a sudden so I happily excepted the quest and then I can't even enter the gate to lightwater because the A green button isn't there now DX. I don't know what to do..I don't want to restart the game again..

    • Big J

      i cant even get in to bowerstone market without my game freezing while it loads

  • Draven

    Can't go 5 mins without the game freezing. Installing it and seeing if that will help.

    • Patrick

      That might be an xbox problem, I had this with Oblivion about a year ago and I searched online and found out how to do sort of an xbox defrag. Google it. I have not had that game freeze since in over a year.

  • Firefly

    Ok,So I have a couple of probs. With the game so far. First sometimes when I use the pause menus to get to the santuary the butler guy doesn’t talk. At all even when I interact with him. And second, and this ones a doozy, when I try to use a dye somtimes it glitches and lets me walk around in the dyeing mode, so I can’t leave the room, press pause to get out of it or dye my stuff. I’m just stuck in the dressing room moving around with the dye selection grid at the bottom left asking me what I want to dye. It’s happened about twice now and the only cure is to go to the dashboard and pray that your game saved.

    • Allan

      I would try to see if the store will exchange it for another copy of the game while you still can.

  • Shawn

    Well its a great game but so far Ive had a couple problems too. First I opened a treasure chest and couldn't move so I had to restart the game but it wasn't froze, none of my buttons would work. Then It wouldn't let me pull any weapon and none of my enemy's even acknowledged me right beside them and I had to start a new game.

    • Jordan

      well i didnt have the problem of not moving when opening a treasure chest but i do have the problem of not being able to use or even pull out my weapons and like you said the enemys didnt even acknowledge me being there, this happened once before but it was brief and now its just stuck like that… its really annoying me, love the game, hate the bug!

      • Gregory Zajic

        I am having the exact same problem! its bugging the crap out of me!

  • Pissed gamer

    Ummmm i saved my game multiple times before exiting. Came back and im like 5+hours back from where i saved…wtf

  • Terrin

    I haven't received my copy of Fable 3 yet but some of these problems could be fixed if you download the game to your hard-drive. I used to have tons of problems while playing Fallout 3 on my Xbox 360 but once I downloaded Fallout to my consul the load time was much better and it didn't make my Xbox run as hard, or nearly as loud.

  • Stephen

    Am I the only guy who saw the leaked Fable 3 DLC when the free weapon pack was made available, yesterday morning I think but I've forgotten what it was!

    There was a dye pack I think and an actual new dlc location that cost 400 MS Points

  • Tip Top Shot

    If anyone needs gold, add me on Xbox live. I have an incredible excess at the moment. Will gift you, at minimum, 1 million gold.

    • amelieSeven

      Hang on to that gold you're going to need every penny-

  • guest

    I cannot complete the "chicken chaser" quest. I returned 9 chickens as it asked and got nothing. My dog even continues to find groups of chickens around town and I bring them back even though I am no longer wearing the chicken suit. I have returned about 21 chickens so far and the quest still hasn't been completed. Also I no longer have the chicken suit. No clue where that went.

    • guest

      same issue here, can not complete the quest and my dog is stuck in that quest. It always has the quest ! over its head so it wont help look for other items….really don't want to restart =(

    • Matt

      if you tried to take chickens back more than three at a time you're fucked on that quest

    • Sam

      I have had the same problem today, this is a big issue i believe now, something to do with the set trail going through a cart near the quest person.. no solution found except to restart.. im takin game back if i have to do that after 3 hours of build up for that. :(

  • hurdy

    doors wont open on the reaver mansion quest, impossible to progress.

  • http://twitter.com/imarikurumi @imarikurumi

    im having two issues with the game so far. after about 30 min into the story, pressing pause gets me stuck in the sanctuary. the only way out is through the map, pressing pause doesnt return me to where i was. this is only mildly annoying until you are on a quest that prevents you from fast travel…then im stuck and have to go back to the dashboard an hope i dont lose too much progress. Also, i get stuck using the map. once i use the map, id better find a place or quest cause i cant get back out of it. this is affecting me in marriage too. when it asks me to pick a family home, i can't choose any of the homes i own (renting or otherwise) and because i cant exit out of the map i have to re-load the game and i end up losing progress on making an NPC love me. I have installed the game to my harddrive because sometimes this fixes glitches but its still giving me problems. anyone else have this happen? anyone else know how to fix it? Thanks

    • Jesse

      hey mate i have the Exact same problem is such a pain in the ass and i have no way of fixing it i started a new character and it do not happen but still happens to the character in question its really frustrating

  • wtf!!??

    My game is stuck on the load screen with the posters after ive played three quarters of the game. Now cant even play on this gamer profile at all bc i cant even get to load a new game to start over!

  • jack

    The sanctuary is GLITCHED!! People can get in but can NOT get out without
    restarting the game…Its game breaking.

    • FUSTRATION

      i know it ruined the game for me. after about 10 hours strait of playin it and finaly getting into the heart and meat of the game… suddenly i get stuck in the stupid sanctuary. i went to the dashbord about 17 times and it is just madenling. i would of given the game a 9 out of ten but now its down to a 2 out of ten cuz i cant play even half of the game be for it breaks

  • Joboy

    I experienced very little problems but I think the reason to that is cause I intstalled it at the very beginning.

  • Bryan

    I've so far had no problems really. The Game quest went without a problem. But i was with a friend completing it so try doing the quest with a co-op person maby than it will work.

  • Michael

    Anyone experiencing lag probably didn't install the game. So far i haven't played fable 3 straight from the disk, but with fable 2 I find it impossible to play straight from the disk, as there is extreme lag and very slow loading times.

  • toby

    i cant exit the damn start menu i press b and start and nothing.

  • fidel pasillas

    Firstly, I had no trouble with "The Game". My main problem is weapon morphing, and for some reason my weapons won't morph on the fly like they are supposed to. Is this because they are the Hero Sword, Hero Hammer, Hero Pistol, and Hero Rifle?

  • Josh

    amazing game, especially because I have been playing New Vegas, and I'm pretty angry at their choice of patching there. Instead of fixing actual problems they instead get rid of a cap glitch most people weren't even using. Anyway Fable 3 has turned out amazing and I love all the new features, here's hoping the gauntlets don't give veins.

    • You've been warned

      Not so much… the devs of Fable 3 fixed the money dup glitch rather than real issues in the last update… thats no different from New Vegas, both games are full of glitches

  • Ka1i Mist

    Fable III,

    In the legendary collectors edition there are freezes and glitches mostly after battle but then sometimes my character gets stuck in tight places or freezes up completely. usually when we trade from one gamer tag to another we walk up to an unopened chest and it won’t open or I won’t be able to show my guild seal to the librarian even after I log out of the game correctly. The my gamer tag is usually alright with chests but my husbands gamer tag character keeps glitching when opening chests.

    Both glitch if you get to far ahead of the game/scene.

    Thanks for looking into it!

  • don'twannastartover

    just finished the quest where i had to beat the dark souls and the metal machines they use and now i need to lead blind walter out and i don't have an option to grab his hand, i actually can't interact with anyone. Anyone know whats up?

    • cory

      im having this exact same problem. ive tried replaying that part 3 times now and it happens every time! have you found a solution yet??

      • SamSoter

        I'm stuck in my game too. I can't interact with anyone and I can't fast travel out. I can walk out of Brightwall and fast travel anywhere, but I still can't interact with anyone in any town.

        • Aaron

          You can go on without him but it does hurt your morality. from what i can tell it is only a small deduction to your moral standing if you are playing as a good character. Walter is actually stuck in the door for me… I don't know where he is at for you.

        • Jenn

          I cant even leave. It wont let me …. I've also restarted many times …

        • James

          exact same for me! this is stupid!

  • H

    In the quest traitors I can’t attack the bad guys and can’t drop down the the area I need to get too.

    • guest

      same man i cant swing melee nor can i shot or cast magic, the bad guys just sit there and dont attack… im stuck right at the end of the game…thanks for yet another disappointment lionhead

      • Me1

        It did the same for me. I had to turn my game on and off, then walk around for a bit before it let me pull out my weapons and finish the quest.

    • Clayt

      I'm stuck there as well…

  • cheri

    The place a bet on the chickens quest wont go away on my game and it says it won't let me fast travel anywhere in till i finish that quest, really annoying

  • annoyed player

    I can't leave the sanctuary and when i play in the fable world my character has been entirely black except for the weapons but not in the sanctuary or the statues on the road to rule wtf hope they patch it… really not making the game as enjoyable but otherwise the game is great.

  • don'twannastartover

    just finished the quest where i had to beat the dark souls and the metal machines they use and now i need to lead blind walter out and i don't have an option to grab his hand

    • kris

      same problem

      • GregorBehr

        same problem :(

  • faygofreakshow

    ok i can deal with the normal issues you get from a game the size of fable 3 just after releasing and not all the minor bugs worked out in a update or two. But i have found a very bad glitch in the game that has almost given my tv a major case of controller trauma. i have found while playing if some one else jumps in your game as you are working on quest that pertain to the main story line and they havent made it that far in the game when about to complete the quest the game stops per say. you can move and the other person can move but the game will not progress on. the fist time this happened i was on the quest at the masquerade and when u fight the reavers at the end you can not kill the last one he never jumps down and no matter how much you shoot at him it deals no damage. this hapopened on the same board a second time this evening now i was playing with a freind and he was thar and i was on a new game and been taking it slow since and we got there before i have unlocked that much and the game did the same thing during the reaver fight. after that we both started a new game and i rushed threw to get me established into the story line and had him join my game as i was completing the mercenary quest the game locked up the same way after the boss mercenary admitted to defeat. what makes this so bad is even if you shut off your console and load back up that save file you are stuck in the same predicament with the story to never progress but every other aspect still works you gain gold if you have rental units u can go to the sanctuary but theres no way to restart the mission and you wind up having to start a new game.

  • FML

    not a technical issue, but i'd still like to see it fixed.
    i foolishly figured that the game would actually give me 365 in-game days until the invasion, giving me more than enough time to make the goal. ultimately, it came within the following 30 minutes, with the one-hundred something-eth day being the actual last "day" before the attack. so now everyone in the world is dead and i have no motivation left to finish the remaining quests..who would want to play in an empty world? is the game not built around character interaction?
    yes, it's entirely my fault, but a last day warning would have been nice; unless i missed it.

    • Starkill

      i have the same exact problem

      • james

        it says in the top right of the screen projected casualties

  • Shane

    I love this game but a couple of issues I've had are that the game seems to freeze quite often and there is a relationship quest that for some reason I cannot complete it doesn't even show up in my quest list but whenever I go see the person whom I'm supposed to do said quest for he asks if I've done it yet.

  • david

    my game laged and now my character is stuck in some kind of sky, I tried to load the game but it is still stuck, can anyone help me?

    • john

      I had this happen and i kept pressing forward on left thumbstick and eventually i fell i to a lake outside and could swim to land and continue

  • Motley aka Yeti

    i'm having some of these similar problems and have yet to see anyone who has found a fix. number one; when i enter the sanctuary i can not exit by pressing start or the b button. i have to go into the map and choose where i was. number two; once married the game asks me to pick a family home and it will only let me look at the homes, i can not make any kind of choice, and can not exit the map. this is really starting to get annoying. i'm going to load the game onto my hard drive and start a second game to see if it will fix the issue but ultimately i will have to start over. i'm very disappointed with Fable 3 at this point.

    • Brandon

      :( im extremely dissapointed with fable right now for the issue of getting stuck in the menu

  • Goobatron4

    In the Darkness Incarnate quest right after walter is saved, it glitches and im unable to lead him out of the cave. i went back and redid the quest from the begining of the cave and it happened yet again, turned the xbox on and off cleaned the disk and everything and still no luck, what should i do?

    • Bstnfan

      Exact same thing in my game, haven't found a solution.. very disappointed.

  • NotHappy

    Dont Buy Games With BAD Frame Rates!!! .

    All this does in give games makers licence to realse half finished games – Just look at Fallout New Vegas ! …. You cant watch a moive with bad frame rate now can you, so Dont do it with games… Your fooling yourself if you think a bit a frame rate drop is ok… It's NOT !

    Nuff Said !

  • Firefly

    Good idea Allan, but what’s the return policy for gamestop like 60 days?

  • Heide

    I've loved the game so far with only minimal complaints of lagging during lute-play, but no biggie. I'm at the end now…about to fight the darkness and all…and the game will not let me wield my sword, shoot my gun, or cast any spells. It's like those buttons are unresponsive. I've tried restarting, turning off my controller and console and restarting, switching to a different controller….nothing works. So…now I'm stuck. I'm nearly done with the game, but I can't finish it. Has anybody else ran into this?

  • Botts

    Maybe someone can help me… Im doing the quest The Battle for Albion and Sabine is supposed to blow the doors open and im on like the second door and he wont blow it open and my saved game is stuck there. So i cant progress any farther…anyone else having this problem? anyone know how to get it to work?

  • Jake

    In the Masquerade quest I fell through the floor. Now I am falling infinitely and because it saved when I went in I am now in a never ending fall that cannot be fixed by going to the sanctuary. Yeah… seven hours of game play and I now get to start over.

    The game is a lot of fun. Just not fun when you have to restart it every time.

  • Gibson

    I beat the game allowing all my people to die because I was good. Is there a way to get them back besides playing the game all over again? Is there like rewind. Or do I have to spend the Post-game having no shops to buy from and no one to see? I can't finish one of the quests without a shop to buy from.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001030380788 Ashley Thacker

      i had the same problem :( i had to just start all over. grrr and i have had to do so 3 times now!!!

    • paulathewanderer

      I'm not sure if this works (I haven't tried it, but i just read it somewhere) that if you get married to Elliot/Elsie and spend a lot of money on the wedding, people will slowly come back. I haven't gotten to try this because when i go to take Elliot on a date I can't grab his hand. :(

  • Confused

    I haven't been able to hold hands with Elliot. Ive already beat the main story line but since then I can't hold hands with him. I proposed before I battled the darkness now it seems that all that has been erased. To be able to propose again I have to take him on a date which is impossible unless I hold his hand.

    • Nickelknack

      Same issue. Can't hold Elliot's hand. I can hold any other spouse's hand I've had. Just not his…

      • Ashleyemdee

        Same for me too, can’t hold elliot’s hand. What do I do???

    • paulathewanderer

      Same here. Anyone know if installing it to the hardrive fixes it? I heard that helps with glitches…

    Fable 3's framerate loss isn't really a problem when u battle. Its only when I have a nice high multiplier while doing jobs that it'll start to lag. Everytime I get a high score it lags. This is the most frustrating thing vie ever had to deal with. Because I know I can't fix it and that means I'll never be making more than chump change while doing jobs….. Fail. Fail for having an almost perfect game but had to have such a frustrating flaw. I still love you Mr. Molyneux!

  • Kat

    Okay, I'm having problems with the dlc you get with the limited addition the house isnt there lol i walked the whole map no house means no quest no dog I dont know if the beta for the new dashboard I have is messing it but it doesnt make sense and I dont know what to do

    • terri

  • jack Ryan

    when first at the reliquary and the glowing orb comes for you to melee i am not prompted to go back to the sanctuary and recieve a weapon so i cannot go past this orb

    I'm stuck at the Leaders and Followers quest. I had to return to Samuel so I followed the glowing trail to the Brightwall gate and got surrounded by a bunch of cheering people. Now I'm stuck and can't go anywhere. I can't return to my sanctuary or reload a previous game since I saved there. Anything I can do?

  • Kevin

    How are any of you even able to play the game yet? I pre-ordered mine and it still hasn't gotten here yet and I live in the U.S.

  • guest

    Games pretty buggy at times, stolen statue quest and failure to spawn balvirens has gotten my char stuck defending the village against nothing,had to restart …

  • ashley

    i have had so many problem and i am bloody well fed up with it. i have had to restart the whole game 3 times now! and now the problem is i am not getting paid for the houses and shops that i own…..its full of bugs and glitches. :(

  • the jimman

    I could not fight at the masquerade task I am just watching and after 3 rounds I am stuck in the room I think there are enemies stuck in the tunnels so we cant kill all of them
    You cant go up into the tunnels but can see a piece of them no way to win

  • sfklajhf

    mine said disc unreadable after the second day of playin it an wasnt a scrath on it now only goes to the loading screen an says it should i take it back or wat?

    • paulathewanderer

      This isn't the game. It's your xbox. I have this problem with a lot of my games (all of which are in adequit condition. What you have to do is take your hardrive out, start the xbox, and put the hardrive back in. That should do it.

  • kyle

    im so annoyed with fable 3 a few minutes ago i joined a random persons game and my character was naked i went back to single player and my character has no cloths no weapons i need to restart the game :( if anyone knows what to do please help me im on a 360

  • Tony

    There is a "save and continue" but no "save and exit". how do you get out without just hitting the dashboard jkey?

  • amelieSeven

    There is a glitch on the Defend the village quest and I'm stuck inside the village-it seems like there are more balverines to kill but I can't seem them, nor can I fast travel – I thnk I'm going to have to start all over – Also, being in co-op seems to create glitches every so often – honestly, I like fable 2 much more then this game – I'm a little dissapointed and totally annoyed with these glitches

  • amelieSeven

    Who's the fool that said "We’ve had a look at some of your feedback on the net for the game, and you’ll be pleased to hear that the only problems we’ve read about is a few issues with framerate, which obviously isn’t a major problem."
    I think they need to read these comments, I played fallout newvegas and not one glitch, I'm so pissed I'm going to have to start this game over when I'm so far in, and worried that I'll just run into another glitch in a new game

  • Brett

    The aggression with the enemies just suddenly stopped, they are no longer fighting back. The hollow men just appear and walk around? And I can't attack them or even draw my weapons?

    • Tallie

      Same happened to me, I reloaded my game and it was back to normal…

  • Josh

    My copy of Fable works fine. Maybe its just where you got it from. I got mine in Richmond and I havnt ran into any glitches yet.

    • You've been warned

      Same here actually and mine is full of glitches

    • Josh

      Sorry but your an idiot, theres over 100 comments saying 'help i have a glitch and im stuck' and you think, must be all of you got the game from the wrong place because mines fine

      you were just lucky if you haven't encountered one glitch or bug which is big or gamebreaking, little bugs are throughout the game anyway in cutsenes and whatnot, the game is broken, its not acceptable and even the framrate which you will have experienced is awful…

  • rob

    I had no problems but i cant believe all the issues thats bad proggramming

  • Cameron

    There's a massive problem with this game. It's called 'Being stuck and unable to play the game'. It happened to me, along with heaps of other people. Check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23FL1cBLxAY

  • Reed

    I can't draw my weapon and enemies completely ignore me, so I had to start over.

  • steve

    Problems with getting stuck in sanctuary, co op keeps locking up my Xbox 250gb slim, orbs not appearing or orb game pictures not appearing and occasional glitch where I get stuck in walls. The console lock ups worry me the most as one time it froze while saving oh and don’t get me started on the dreadful frame rates. Don’t lionhead test before release? Great game but very problematic.

  • mark

    I have a game breaking problem. At a certain point in the game, a certain area would not load, and i would fly in midair, and since it auto-saved, I have to start over. i even tried switching to a different fable 3 disc, same problem

  • Frustrated

    Ii'm glad I've only been playing for 4 days as I have to completely restart. I was playing coop & when I reloaded my game after leaving the other persons (shared screen) it's completely stuck!! I can move around in their game but Apparently I just wasted the last 15 hours of play time!

  • eshred

    I am trying to rescue the rebels and I go thru my first attack from the goblins, but when my 2nd attack starts, I get a message saying to clean my disk or reboot he Xbox 360 machine.

    Any thoughts?

  • Matt

    i have just become king and about to go through the final gate on the road to rule, everything happens as it should but then the gate doesn't open to the last lot of chests and the portal! i can get back to the sanctuary but everything is deactivated! how do i get through this last gate!?

  • Glenn

    My character Glitched in Reaver's Mansion a lot of people have glitched there. My character can't leave, it saved on me, so when i restart it doesn't help. Nothing at all fixes the problem. So please fix the problem.

    Its terrible!! I can't play my game and I'm not reinvesting the time. So yeah!
    I did it coop with my friend who wasnt in costume, i was. When we did it in his game we both wore costume no problem.

    PLZ PATCH, otherwise this is a shitty game that I wasted 69.99 on and can not play

  • guest

    every time the camera moves the frame rate messes up and you get really blurred picture. need to put out a patch to fix.

  • Danilo Mihaldzic

    My only two complaints are: the one that Jack Hooper said and that the story's too short,but other than that brilliant game!Thank you Molyneux!
    Greetings from Serbia!

  • Nickp711

    My golden trail doesn’t work! It’s either not there or not working one it took me into the lift at the monorail station I went down got out and it sent me’ back in! Just in and out the lift! And also what bugs me more is the fact the volume of people speaking in the background has gone really quiet. Most notable with the gnomes! How do I catch them when I can’t hear them!!!!

  • Bob

    I’m really annoyed with this because I got really close to finishing it…then on the stolen statue quest i chose to help Connor now it tells me to return to him but it has encased me in the town with invisible Walls and by not allowing me to fast travel and all the trails tell me is to go in the cave.. Then back out over and over again please help I really cba to start all over again!!! :(

  • DERRICK

    ok i have hAD THE PRBLEM WITH THE FREE FALL SO I HAD TO START OVER NOW IM STUCK I CANT DRAW MY WEAPONS AND NO ENOMY WILL EVEN NOTICE ME

  • FML~

    theres is no BACK button once your looking in the map, and if your in a quest and you go to the map your basically stuck because you cant fast travel OR back out. its retarded im stuck looking to the damn map of bowerstone and i have earned soo much XP i dont want to shut it off

    • Annonymous

      …..Is your controller missing a B button?

  • Ruki

    My Sanctuary is just all messed up. I can't go back once I've entered it, and I have to select a quest to go back to it, but that doesn't always work when I do it half way through an important quest, so I have to restart. Also my start game screen doesn't recognize I'm pressing start a lot of the time.
    This game is soooooo glitchy and laggy. I love Fable, but man, they dropped it this time. And I thought 2 was bad as far as bugs went.

  • Cyrus

    Drop the criminal clock feature or at LEAST let it run down via sleeping or while my console is turned off. I racked up 900+ minutes on that thing trying to upgrade the Inquisitor sword and now I can’t do a thing in Brightwall until that time’s up. And the ONLY way to drop the time limit is by standing around doing nothing which is not only frustrating, but it’s undoubtedly harming my already weathered console. Fix this please. ASAP!

  • Jason

    I noticed a problem when making pies although not a huge problem. A villager came and pushed me out of the way and she was in my spot. I could still make the pies, but the tops were not on the pie and I wasn't actually putting them in the oven. It was actually pretty funny but a glitch none the less. Also during battle with several enemies the camera gets zoomed in way to much and it is hard to keep track and fight the enemies you cannot see. Also the volume of voices from villagers and other characters drops very low and you can barely hear them. This happens at random to me.

  • Clay inferno

    Want to say there's ALOT of problems it seems for Fable3 – Surprising amount, I'm "Meeting" with Page after I become the Evil King of Albion, and During a quest, game crashed – Well, ok? Turned it off, and loaded it back up, NO WEAPONS, No swords, No guns, No Gaunlets. None of them work. Can't enter combat myself, however my Enemies still look at me as if I'm a very tasty turkey, Well cooked and Juicy breasts, on Thanks-Giving day. Dieing constantly and Can't Enter combat.

    On another Character, My Clothes room isn't working :/ I can enter the armoury, I can enter the LIVE room, and the Achievement room. but The Clothes room is Still covered in Cobwebs. Fantastic.

    Few problems with Quests & Marrying, Some of the Characters in the game don't seem to be Acknowledging that I've done a quest, and They revert back to before I spoke to them.
    I've even married someone who loved me, and once i was married, She feared me as if i was a Headless Chicken glowing red with evilness from every part of my body. (Although, to be fair, I am a headless chicken glowing red with Evilness from every party of my body)

    And Co-op mode. is a bit iffy. I've had a player enter his sanctuary for about 10+ Minutes, and I'm not able to kick him from my game, I' had to Turn off my console in the end.

    All in all, I'm not pleased with Fable3. There are too many problems.

  • natasha

    after reavers manion shortly before u go to the castle with ben finn, the backround noices of people villergers are really quiet-theres nothing i can do? it is slightly annoying anyone nelse with this prob?

  • dan

    Frequently I find context sensitive options do not display (ie. walking up to a villager and try to interact). Also, when Fast Traveling to another area to get to a quest, the glowing trail will sometimes not appear to show me the way. I then have to go back to the map and reselect the area to get it appear.

  • ngioda;s

    In the "the game" quest i cant open the door to the tower, and i cant leave the area. this sucks.

  • James

    okay… so i just killed the sentinal and walter is blind, he keeps telling me to get him out but i cannot take his hand? i pushed him all the way to the exit hoping that might work but it has not. Any suggestions?

  • kris

    Im in the cave of darkness, I need to escort blind walter out but i cant grab him or leave the cave with out him.Hell i cant even kill him and it sucks, what can i do about this glitch

  • greenwitch65

    i just went to play and it wouldn't load. the chicken in the circle doesn't move. I just saved while in Aurora. Really weird. Anyone else have a problem with the game not loading?

    • You've been warned

      Yup… it happened randomly at first then it seemed to stop then it became more frequent until you can't go a few minutes without it not loading… Id suggest starting a new file if it isn't too late and wait for a patch before it gets to a point where your save can't be salvaged. I so angry I just gave up on fable and went back to reach… the patch addressing things like corrupt gamesaves is not expected for another "few weeks" according to a representative I read somewhere… Sorry I can't find the link but this is the only hope I can really give you if it gets worse…

  • Sad Hannah

    Played through the game once with no issue.

    Playing through the second time: flourishes started shutting my Xbox off for no reason.
    The problem spread to general combat on occasion, and now, even the scene in the beginning where your character performs his/her first flourish shuts the system off.

    I'm not entirely sure if this is a game glitch, or a system malfunction. There aren't even any flashing lights that usually go along with a random shut-down.

  • Annonymous

    My character can't gain guild seals. I can kill a pack of wolves or a gang of bandits but the amount of seals never increases. Does anyone know why?

  • Russ

    I love fable 3, I have my complaints about the usual stuff like armor being cosmetic and blah, blah, blah but after getting totally hooked on this newest installment of the fable series I found myself stuck (literally) in a rock after vaulting over a wall in Aurora. I had already beaten the game once and, unfortunately, the character I was using when I found myself in this situation was the character I had decided to explore the game in depth with. 4 maxed out legendary weapons, 7.5 million gold, 5 families, almost every building purchased, 24+ hours spent on the character….I am EXTREMELY frustrated. Because I was in the middle of a quest when this problem occurred I cannot fast travel.

    A video example similar to my problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C91JisHGIpk&fe

    The most recent patch for the Xbox has not resolved the problem. Please, please, please patch the clipping problem. Oh, and Jasper hasn’t said a word in days…too bad too I’m a big fan of John Cleese.

  • guest

    Can't take walter's hand in Darkness Incarnate quest. I don't want to start a new char :(

    • Joshua

      I had this same problem last night actually. Simply go to the Sanctuary save and turn off the console. Turn it back on and it should work, at least that is how I did it. Good luck my friend.

  • Alex

    i cant play fable 3 anymore after new dashboard update
    why?!

    • You've been warned

      Try deleting your cache (I think you go to memory and then hit y then like reset cache or something, DO NOT format – from the description I think it will erase all saves and data on your hard drive) and then reloading the fable content when you start it up Im not sure how you could solve this problem

  • fable fan

    i hate not having several characters im fable 2 i had a good male and female a bad pair and a few im between this game colud be better if game designers realized ppl like to have several files and characters to game with and stop with the stupid online acheviments i play 1st person shooters online not fantasy rpg games online only thing that is good for is dlc

  • Vexed

    My problem with the game is that i did a mission ( the mission where you go into the game board when you get shrunk) completed it but it won't end.

  • jayden

    My xbox says "Game needs update but update could not be found" then it sends me back to the dashboard?? WTF

  • Joshua

    I've had to start over twice now, the first time I completely blew threw everything and became king saved and cut off the game. The next day I turned the xbox back on, and none of the achievements I had acquired were there and neither were my avatar items. The second time through I took my time, I had tons of Gold, several legendary weapons, and had opened one golden door. I started to co-op the Reaver Mansion mission with a buddy of mine who was around the same place in the story, during the first round against the hobbes we tore through the the first batch with out any difficulty and when the second group of hobbes should have spawned nothing happened. It just sat there, the music still played, however Reaver didn't talk, Page wasn't moving at all and I couldn't fast travel to any location on the map because I was in the middle of a quest. These two problems highly frustrated me almost to the point of never playing again, but being the fan of Fable that I am I decided to give it one more go on a new play through and luckily I haven't had any problems on this run.

  • jolly

    i can not see any of the job signs…..

  • Zac

    Quest: The Game
    Objective: "Find the princess."
    I have killed every wolf in the area, approached the door, and it will not open. There is no "Hold A to Open the Door" prompt that would normally show up in a situation like this. There is only one door to the tower, and there is no way to open it. I cannot fast travel out of this location. I have tried resetting the game, and my character is autosaved in this location. This is ridiculous. Next time Lionhead releases a game, they need to finish it first.

  • Christopher Hutto

    I did a fast travel, and instead of opening in the destination I chose, my hero is floating in the sky unable to do anything. When I fast travelled it auto-saved, and now every time I try to load my game, I get my hero floating in the sky. when I pause it doesn't go to the sanctuary, it goes to the options menu. Is there anything I can do to remedy this, or do I have to start all over again, having just waisted all the game play up to this point? If I start over, will it do it again? I have enjoyed the game until now. I can live with minor glitches, understanding that it's a small price to pay for improved gameplay and visuals, but this is ridiculous.

    • Kevin

      Dude the same thing happened to me!

      I fast traveled to the castle with my wife and i turn up to be flying in the sky and the game autosaved it at the same time. I tried everything. Idk what to do now. I dont want to make a new game because i have been through so muchh that i dont want to go through again.

  • Tiniesha

    After I beat the game, I can't find elliot or my kid (she is black also, not racist just don't know how that happened). I was good but I had enough money to save all the people, too. I've tried going to my house, searching all the towns, but I can't find him.

  • uh…help?

    yeah I can't draw any weapons and my enemies don't even aknowledge me but it works fine for my brother on his xbox WTF?

  • Save Problem ?

    The Saving, Multiple saving withing a 10+ hour period of gaming ( I'm strict when it comes to saving ), yet when i return to the game the next day the game seems to have ignored every save that i have .. well . saved. Now not only do i have to make up 10+ hours of gaming that have been lost but also must i endure the game for a third time. Oh how i do miss those menus from time to time.

  • Teddy

    me and my friend were playing in his game over xbox live
    and in the aurora mission his weapons just disappeared and therewas no way of getting them back he couldnt use anything magic nothing! we got to theend of the mission where he needs to kill something for it to go past but he has no weapons so we cant get past it ?

  • Ben

    my caracter cant use his weponds or open anything.helppppppp

  • Fall glitch

    Potential game breaker here. I was in Aurora in co-op and when we went to go back to the main city, it wouldn't load the map transfer so i fell therough the door. Now I'm stuck falling endlessly. I press start to sanctuary, and it auto-saved on me while taking me to the cutscene menu. So now every time I load my game, I find my character still falling endlessly in Aurora. Any way to fix this?

    • You've been warned

      I know a few ways (because it has happened to me)… Online Ive heard that pressing both sticks up will eventually get you unstuck, I didn't try that so I can't verify; Ive heard letting yourself fall for a few days will eventually get you unstuck, I also haven't tried that; If you're married pressing up on the d-pad brings you to the fast travel map; and the solution that got me unstuck was making your partner quit then rejoin. He'll be free, then get him to search for a dig site. Dig up an article of clothing and press x to be teleported to the sactuary to try the clothing on. I got stuck near the entrance to veiled path in shifting sands. If youre in the main city he could also buy clothing from a shop then teleport to the sanctuary

  • Doc

    my glowey trail just disappears…..kind of annoying….and for some odd reason in my brothers game he had sex and managed to get a black child from a white wife…..awkward…

  • that guy

    so here is the deal, good game… except for the bugs. my butler apparently lost his tongue or i ticked him off because he no longer speaks to me unless i'm in another world, and when i leave, so does there butlers voice. on top of that their is the common complaint of lag, quest issues, glitching dog, and sketchy scenery. personally i think lionshead should have focused more on the game and less on the butler…

  • max

    I can’t move at all or do anything apart from pause and move the camera. Stupid Microsoft!!!

  • chris

    in the dark incarment mission or whatever its called i cant grab blind walters hand, i even restarted the quest, and that doesnt help, i really dont want to restart my game

  • Addison

    I have a very serious glitch going on. It was working just fine a while ago, but I turned the game on a while agao, and now all the quest NPCs are missing, and all the Job NPC signs are missing, which keeps me from doing any quests or jobs. I don't know what's causing it, I restarted the game, it was still doing it, I restarted the console, its still doing it, I even started up a disc lens cleaner and cleaned the disc lens inside the 360 thinking maybe it couldnt read the whole game, but then I started the game up and its STILL doing it. All I can do is run around, theres no quests available because the NPCs are gone. HELP!!!! Also, @Jack Hooper did you complete the game as a pure hearted king? If you did, and you didn't donate to the treasury at all, then all the civillians die in the attack. If you want to be a good king, you have to raise the 7 million gold yourself, which isnt hard, just rent out houses, buy shops, and max out job levels to earn more money.

  • TheSketchyKid

    I can`t take out or use my weapon .. or even my magic ..
    can anyone help me ?

  • Firebug19

    My sanctuary and map table are glitched. There is no back button to leave so I cannot go into the sanctuary during a mission or I get stuck. Two of my friends have the same issue. One friend's save game glitched out and he had to restart right near the end of the game. I cannot buy or repair houses using the map table. Playing co-op over Live, my friend's character became invisible. My dog gets stuck frequently and my golden trail is missing more than it's visible. I'm really not impressed with this release. If it weren't for the bugs, it would be one of my favourite games. But the bugs just ruin it.

  • You've been warned

    SO FUCKING MANY GLITCHES IN THIS GAME DO NOT BUY IT… I ignored the small glitches all the way through now I'm 70 hours in and stuck. Mine freezes every 5 minutes, any load/save screen causes it to freeze like 95% of the time, so the most loading screens I can get through is like 2… I have a friend that is stuck in "The Game" Quest. My dog is a dumbass, who gets stuck in trees and barks at me when I'm standing on the dig spot. I've installed it to my hard drive and moved the save from my hard drive to memory unit… no luck with progressing. Early in the game annoying random framerate drops occured, you end up getting used to it until more glitches come along. I've been in two fights where my weapons wouldn't draw and my character wouldn't move (bringing me close to death… At least I think I was close to death I can't tell anymore because THE FUCKING LIFE BAR IS GONE)… Luckily I was saved by my co-op partner.

  • You've been warned

    In coop sometimes the invisible walls are none-existant and unless youve been in the area before you might get stuck and fall endlessly through the ground. You can't choose your expressions like in Fable 2. I've heard having anymore than 50 or so weapons causes the game to glitch (so you can't keep copies if your going for the collect all weapons achievement), the same happens when you have excessive amounts of gold… The most money you can give someone is 100,000 at a time which sucks when youve bought all the properties and have like 20 million with nothing to spend it on. The plot is short and fairly boring in comparison to the plots of Fable 2 and 1… I could seriously go on but you get the point… Fable 3 is a piece of shit, time-wasting game… you'd be better off spending your money on something else…

  • pixy1879

    I have also encounter the same voice issue after going to reevers mansion. Since then I can not hear any of the villagers talk unless I am directly interacting with them! Help

  • Chris

    First time I played it glitches at the end in weight of the world and I got annoyed so I restarted. Now I have spent over 24 hours exploring every little bit of the world I have come across and am on my way to meet the rebeals and now I can’t draw my weapons or cast magic everythig else works as far as I can tell. I quit for the night but if I have glitches again then I am done for sure. I will not invest more time in this game.

    • Ntd3000

      same here, playe it one right through with noproblems, but now my weapons hae just stopped working. very very annoyig

  • Erika

    Some issue that I have that aren't really problems is when you are fighting people and the screen slow mos into an enemy that just dies, and while you are looking at this one dying enemy you are getting your butt beat by the people that have ran up to you and started hitting you. SO ANNOYING!

  • http://www.facebook.com/toodoodoo Nam-Phuong Cong-Huyen

    i cant tell you how much i love this game BUT i have had problem with it, but I want to tell you before hand, im not too sure if its mainly because of my system or the game itself. Ive try to find info and to see if anyone else out there experiment the same problem, but so far seem like im the only one. So after I completed a quest toward the end called "the stolen statue" my game keep freezing up and there's no way for me to do anything. when i reloaded the game, this would happen, the game will load, then it will automatically take me to fast traveled waiting screen then THERE it will then freeze up again. I thought it was because of the disc (since there was small cut at the back) so i went to gamestop and got it replace, but to my surprise it still doesnt work. :( if anyone have any idea how to fix or advice please let me know. fable ftw!

  • Ashleigh

    I've noticed a few things before it updated today so far it hasn't happend after the update, I managed to get stuck on nothing when I talked to the boat guy at the industrial dock, during LIVE co-op, I got stuck in between to stalls at brightwall both times i've had to restart the game. Also Jasper keeps telling me I have gifts when I clearly do not, nothing problematic just annoying. This only occured today after I updated, during the silverspine curse sidequest, I had just picked up the weapon (wolfsbanne) and started fighting the ghosts, with a mix of lightning and vortex, when they fell into the ground. I could still see their heads and was able to defeat them, it was all quite funny.

  • pissed off

    I saved my game before exiting the game and when I went back to play it erased about 10+ hours of my game. This needs to be fixed. I paid 80 bucks for the collectors addition and it does this, what a rip off

  • Edward

    i have problem with other heroes gift to me glitching. i get the gifts and accept them but when i return to my main game they are gone. can it be fixed

  • Edward

    wonder if there could be more uses for the guild seals. i open all items on the road to rule and i still have 1000 seals left. more dlc please

  • John Boy

    I dont get treasure when i open chests, nor when i dig or dive. Its very frustrating….

  • Adria

    I also fell through the floor during the masquerade party, in the balvarine room.

  • Stormy

    i love this game. however, i tried playing it last night and i would be able to sign in and everything but the first loading screen would freeze everytime. I must have restarted it like 10 times and it wold freeze everytime. I cleaned off the disk, sprayed air duster into the system, and it still won't work. It works fine on my boyfriends profile but not mine. I really don't want to have to restart the game. Any suggestions on what it could be?

    I’m really ticked off that you can’t even walk around with your wings out if this is not fixed I won’t buy shot from lionhead ever again it seems as if every new game they put out get worse and omg there’s so lazy in making their games each new game gets shorter glitchier and slower.

    • Fableplayer117

      your over reacting a tad.

  • alex

    When theresa explains the threat from Aurora and explains about being a good and bad thing I can’t do anything in game except pause so can’t actually continue the game which is a bugger!

    Im hoping Lionhead reads these comments cause im stuck in the quest "Gone but not forgotten" and i made it to the last part of the quest where you are locked in a room with two spotlights and you defeat a couple of steletons and then i have to find Max to get the book. Well Max dissapeared before i got to the book and left me in the room with a wall of spirits blocking me from the book and an enless hord of skeletons coming after me cause the spotlights wont go away. I cant travel anywhere and am stuck in the room, this is a big damper on my gaming experience cause now i am stuck and cannot do anything until Lionhead fixes this problem. If anyone knows of any sollutions im willing to try cause ive exausted all known possibilities on trying to leave this area. One thing i propose Lionhead do is give us the ability to leave an area even if we are questing or ending a quest and restarting it.

    Elliot, who I married as soon as he popped up again, is now gone. I get the message that he has a gift for me and our house is still there with his name as my husband, but he is completely gone! Annoying that I can't find him and that they still get money from me. What's that about?
    Please solve it! If he's dead, then make him/the costs/messages disappear!

    • EmpressSara14

      Try Moving THE FAMILY to another House where it is EASY to locate Him in the village/house, and back again.  That usually helps locate Elliot. In The Castle, He’s many times working in the kitchen, even When I’m The Queen.:)

  • Anthony

    I'm doing the quest "The Voice" which is an Understone DLC Quest I believe. after I went up the elevator, the door locks behind you. Ran down the path to a little arena looking area where an electricy gate pops up on the door to continue on and enemies are supposed to spawn for you to kill to get the gate to go off so you can continue. However, the enemies never spawn, the gate doesn't go away, the door doesn't unlock, and you can't fast travel during the quest. Therefore, I'm stuck in a hallway unable to do anything at all. I'd just start over if it was a DLC thing, but reading these comments it doesn't sound like I'd get much farther before something else broke and I'm stuck again. Think I'll just email Lionhead and demand a refund or a recall or something lol

  • Chef boyarly

    after downloading the DLC for new quest package, im stuck doing a quest at understone, where the electric fence is blocked, and i have to get to him, but when i get there nothing happens, but whats suppose to happen is, monsters suppose to appear for me to attack but its not, any help?

    I was playing Co-OP with my friend we only got to the very beginning of the game before it glitched and there NO WAY TO FIX IT it's the part where you go into the tunnel first part where you can finally use the fireball we get through the bats down into that section then the AI's were supposed to follow just teleport to who knows where and he's telling me to read the book except for it didnt teleport me and my friend and made it so we couldn't use the fireball move so we walkout of the cave to see if we could re get our fireball move (which worked) then walked back all the way down the long tunnel to try the fire teleport thing again but the door that we went through previously is now close ! so were locked in the tunnel and the castle and we tried shooting the people in the castle with fireballs since we realised at this point we could no longer continue the game but the villagers and guards there didn't even get hurt by them all they did was wave and cheer at us as we attempted to burn them with our fireballs .
    Sucks Glitched within the first 10 minutes of the game

    Whenever I press the Start button, to go to the Sanctuary, it goes to the Options screen, where it says "Game Management, Game Settings, and New Game." When I press Game MAnagement to save and restart my xbox, It says I can't save……. Can anyone help me…?

    Game locks up when I get to meet Reaver in Bowerstone…..any suggestions. Have restarted game 2 times and still locks up at that point

    • O IN Y IX

      mine has done the same thing 4 times just past that, in the desert. it sucks ae?

    • EmpressSara14

      I’ve run into a FEW lock-ups but not at Reaver’s Mansion, Thank GOD! however, through My experience, I’ve encountered similar ones, and SAVEING games(at the same save pt.) in a game SOMETIMES helps, and So One Can GO back to ONE of three save games BEFORE the Mansion, hence PERHAPS bypassing that pt.  I ALSO find that IF A Charac. can’t interact with NPCs,etc., I sign off the game and then sign back in, which usually fixes that.:)

  • Fableplayer117

    The only glitch I have encountered is that my moral standing is stuck… I can not increase my morality nor can I lower it. Encountered this after decreasing my morality when upgrading the sandgoose and after upgrading it (by getting evil guild seals by being rude to people) I have been unable to increase or decrease my morale which has been a major problem because I can't get into a certain demon door and I can not upgrade any weapons that require me to get good or bad guild seals. I would appreciate any assistance in fixing this problem thanks.

  • Big J

    playing on the main storyline in reavers mansion where you gotta fight in his areana my game freezes when i fight the hollow men and on one other side quest where i fight a bunch of hollow men as well. any way to fix the freezing

  • smell my cat

    my only problem is that i can't load any of my profiles offline, even though i have all the content on my hard drive, it says i dont have any of the required content to load my game, can anyone help?

  • BashenteesGhost

    Almost had the game finished and then I dropped through a scene and now I am perpetually floating in the sky. Wouldn't be so bad, except the game saved there last so now if I go back to save point, I get to float and I can't do anything. Going to start the game over. Dang. Major killer.

  • Salvador

    Im stuck in the battle for Albion Quest, stupid AI Characters followed me into an alley and now they just won´t move, tried doing everything and i am still stuck. Heard other people had similar problems. So sad such a good saga is being ruined by some glitches, well a lot of glitches. I´m seriously thinking about trading my game because i refuse to play it all over again.

    • EmpressSara14

      Oh DO Play It From A Previous Save Or AGAIN! Because EACH Time You find New Things, The CHARACTERS, NPCs EVOLVE, And Be SURE to SAVE SAVE SAVE! Especially When In the Battle For Albion=So That When You ACCIDENTLY kill a villager/fighter, That one’s children don’t keep saying, annoyingly, “why did you kill that person!”  Including All The People Everywhere! AH!  Gave Me Enough Adrenlin to GO BACK And get rid of logan’s ELITE guards AGAIN! FUN! And I Agree With Ben Finn’s comment, “elite guards my ass!”:)

  • Alexandria

    at first it worked great, but the more i played it, the more it began to lag, until finally it compleately froze my xbox all together. I still love the game (although it doesn't seem to have as much of a challenge as the first two did), but i hope lionhead will fix the issue soon, becuase i can no longer play it until they do.

  • O IN Y IX

    it keeps saying my save file is corrupt when i have done nothing to it-when i go to play it after a few days it says save file is corrupt. bloody anoying

  • Sophie

    Am i seriously the only person that has never had a problem with this game ? Im rather scared now of playing it again xD

  • Guest

    The bread crumb trail continuously doesn't appear, framerate issues super annoying, pause interface sucks, dog sucks, would be nice to be able to fix all houses at once. Minimap or compass would come in handy. My butler keeps wanting me to visit the shop (want to strangle him) slow motion attacks turn my screen around everytime in combat so I have to re-adjust to face opponents. Game is ok… 6/10 (would rather play fallout 3)

  • Uggh

    I miss fable 2. that game didn't glitch or lag. this one just pisses me off. if you read this forum and haven't bought the game yet…dont buy it. huge let down after the awesomeness of fable 2.

  • Jen

    I have played and beat the game wanted to start a new one played for days on it loaded it one day and it took me back to the first game I played. What happened to that game. I then started another new game and after I turned it off and started it back it still took me to the first games I played. Plese help I don't want that first game how do I get the other games to come back???????

  • Mika

    The problem that I am having is that it wont let me marry even though they are asking and I have a ring also it isnt giving me the quest "A Marriage of Inconvenience".

  • Amyn8r

    I HATE BEING TALLER THAN ELLIOT! Either make main characters taller or give us an option to shrink, please! I understand that Heroes are supposed to be tall but for the love of Pete….

    Also: MAKE BEN FLINN AND PAGE MARRY-ABLE! They're such great characters and their stories just pitter off that the end. SO frustrating.

    • EmpressSara14

      I know the TALL Thing gets on My Nerves Too! I’m afraid If I Get TOO Tall Elliot will Look Like a Munchkin! so I just Imagine I’m just wearing Really Tall High Heels Or I stand On Higher ground so it won’t bug Me so much!:)

    • EmpressSara14

      Yep, I hope The Game’s Designers Make Ben Finn Marry-Able Too!  and Although Elliot Has A History with The Princess, Ben Finn Has EXCELLENT Irrisistable traits!:)

  • kenzi

    I'm stuck at the Leaders and Followers quest. I had to return to Samuel so I followed the glowing trail to the Brightwall gate and got surrounded by a bunch of cheering people. Now I'm stuck and can't go anywhere. I can't return to my sanctuary or reload a previous game since I saved there. Anything I can do?

  • dave

    My game is stuck in the dutch language and I cant figure out how to fix it. I put it in my friends xbox with his profile and it is english, but for some reason it is different on mine. It is the only game I have that comes out in this language. Can anybody help PLEASE!

  • Autorated

    So, i just recieved the game for my birthday a few days ago, and now after playing it for a while yesterday, it is stuck on the load menu and wont get off of it for hours. All of my other games work so its not my xbox…Should I get a return for the game? or what?…

    Any one had the problem where you  leave the dwellers camp, and go back in  cause you made a wrong turn then when you try to leave again the game saves and locks you up? i gonna try installing it on my xbox see what happens but would love some some other options

    • EmpressSara14

      i had a problem at the very beginning of the Dweller’s Camp where Sir Walter Just Stopped WALKING and Froze. SO I started a new game and it didn’t freeze up.  Just be sure to SAVE SAVE SAVE In The Save room Throughout the game! VERY VERY Important!:)

  • Chevalierdejohnstone

    It’s a crap game, constantly freezing, quests malfunction, glowing trail disappears, rendering issues (on Xbox).  And the storyline might hold the attention of an 8-year-old…except the game has alcohol and sex.  DO NOT BUY.

    fable 3 on xbox 360 is not starting. the intro works, then nothing but a black TV screen. I’ve downloaded updates, restarted and still nothing. This sucks. :/

  • Guest

    i think fable 3′s storyline is good, but the abundance of glitches is just sad. though i think lionhead should have fixed them before the game was relased, they did not, and though i think they should make a patch for them now, they probably wont. so at the very least i beg that lionhead makes fable 4 (should it ever be made) completly glitch-free, and throw in some free downloadable content for the frustrated gamers involved with fable 3.

  • Ash

    Love the game so much but now I’m stuck trying to meet reaver in bowerstone and it just wont load the glowing trails or reaver, cant find him anywhere! So sad.. Dont buy this game. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. Already put it through cleaning machines but still doesnt work. :(

    I’m having a technical issue in the Sunset House quest. I reached the part of the quest where you chest-battle with Chesty, and after (me) winning, the screen went back to normal and I was immediately in combat mode. Then, all the chest pieces began moving (but not roaming) and I’m not able to continue the quest or travel anywhere other than my sanctuary. Very frustrating and if I have to start over I will be furious because I have very valuable weapons and clothing.
