Fable 3 Problems: Submit to Lionhead for Xbox 360 Patch Update

We have some good news for those of you who are still suffering from problems with your copy of Fable III on the Xbox 360, as it has been announced that users can now submit their problems to the game’s official website in preparation for a future patch update.

As reported from VG247, the page has been set up specifically for players to let rip on any bugs, glitches or general game problems that they have experienced whilst playing.

It is likely that Lionhead will study the list of problems, especially those of the same nature that mount up, and add it to their list of problems that need to be addressed in a future patch update on the Xbox 360. We wrote our own problems thread after the game was released, and so far we have had over 100 comments with users explaining their problems with the game.

Sadly there is no release ETA for the patch update, but at least you can rest assured that Lionhead are working hard to get it out asap.

Do you still have any problems for the game? If so, you can submit it online to the developers here.

My fable 3 (xbox) was working (though from cd), until I added some add-ons (free), and then now it wont even load and is constantly (chicken twirl) -update for hours.

Im hoping to find out whats wrong before I decide to take this cd in for trade for something else.
And this one of the games that came with the box when bought.

Already tried re-installing.

When I do my chicken race, (1st time) I place my bet on Two-Wing Timmy.  I bet 1000g on him.  When I hit X to start it, it starts but i just look at the empty cage where the chicken used to be before the race.  I sat there for 5 minutes and nothing happened.  This problem did it to me 5 times now, and i got the game 3 days ago.

Since I started playing co-op mode, all of my mini-games are unplayable. IE: The blacksmith, pie maker, and lute hero. I can’t play any of them. Yes I have the chest unlocked and so does the player that I was co-oping with.

My first Time around playing I got to the end and able I was saving I dashboarded which then the data I played with was totally corrupted and I couldn’t use it again which ok…. Was totally my fault and I’m ok with that but than i started again and got to the quest gone but not forgotten and I’m locked in a room trying to find max where he is clearly right there sitting on the piano or whatever the hell that is and I can’t fast travel out of here and so I just run around and kill… Read more »

I cant restart a new game! I finished, and now when I restart, it mixes and matches with my old one. Downgraded and not a true RPG as you can not really guide how you grow very well. A choice of cruelty leading to victory or kindness leaving to utter destruction is far to black and white. No grey here. I am disappointed to say the least.

Neil Mitch

I dont think they could do the changes that people will want in a single patch because there are so many things that people hate about fable 3 that they would just be better making a fable 4 and going back to using the mechanics of fable 1 and 2 because fable 3 really has taken away all the fun choices you had in the prior fables

I loved the story, but it was short. Really, really short. I finished it in about 1 and a half days. The fact you get taller while using guns is alittle annoying. Since im litterally taller than EVERYONE else on my female character. The fact when your good you turn Ghostly white. ALSO annoying. I want to look like a normal person, wings and runes during Flourishes are still fine. I like it. But I hate being overly pale. And these random spurts of lag I get are also annoying. Other than that its a great game. Well, I would… Read more »

Ok lets break down the pros and cons. Pro's Controllable Economy- Versatility in economic gaming functions Changing Environment- Albeon is continously changing Moral Declaration- You can still kill innocent people..or save them. Unlimited Quests- Relationship quests are forever more, but can be repetetive. Thoughtful Side Questing- The side quests are very well thought out, and provide interesting predicaments occuring outside the main story line. NPC Diction- Plausible, decent, and hilarious in some cases (Garden Gnomes) Fast Travel- FINALLY THANK YOU! Cons- Lack of weapon and clothing versatility primarily in customization. Over 51 legendary weapons, 51 of which are non-customizable. I… Read more »

I agree with most of the above comments, but what i dislike about the game is that i cant have many different saves that i can return and load from. You have to pretty much start the game over with a new character and save in order to even have more than one save. I cant say that I completely hate this game because it still offers a lot of the great game play that i enjoy just because no other games have them.But they have also downgraded everything. I hope they can find away to improve this before they… Read more »

(SPOILERS) Things I wish they would fix with fable III: 1. I absolutely hate how all of a sudden the game goes straight to the war once you’re done with the judging and decision making as king. They really need to give an option to start the final battle. I was playing a good character, only good decisions, debt was nearly paid off. While waiting for income, I decided to do some decisions making. After completing this, it went straight to the battle. I had no idea those were the last choices, I though the game would wait for me… Read more »

Im stuck, in the quest "Gone but not forgotten" Where: In the last part of the quest where you are locked in a room with Max and the book, with a spirit wall blocking you from the book. Objective: Find Max Problem: im locked in the room with two spotlights that wont go away so the skeletons just keep coming, and have to find Max but Max has mysteriously dissapeared and now there is a spirit wall surrounding the book that wont go away meaning i cant complete the quest or game for that manner because I cant fast travel… Read more »

I hope Fable IV goes back to the time of the original. The guns are stupid. There need to be more customization options. The more the better. Individually repairing the houses (even from the minimap) was a pain in the ass. The fact that you only truly look good or evil during an expression is retarded. There should be more exploration, hidden items/ quests, and mystery to the game. Thats one of the things that made the original so great. The way the game skipped from 365 day to 250 days to 122 days to the final day was total… Read more »

The only bug I've had is I'm stuck on the "Stop the robbery at the Bowerstone Market Pub". I go in there and there's only 1 guy and after I kill him I'm stuck, no other guys to kill and the game won't let me leave the pub or choose another mission or fast travel anywhere else! The worst thing is that my GF played it and had no trouble!! Now I have to start all over again grrrrr!!!

I play Many games of all sorts and my opinion is that Fable 3 is good. I do have to say, I have ran into some bugs and I have listed them below. 1) After playing with another player online your guild seal meter may not work and you won't be able to gather anymore. I had to restart my game twice due to this issue. 2) The glowing trail can mislead you and or will not show up at all when you use it. 3) My weapon has morphed on me even though I had already morphed it once… Read more »

Even better, they've already announced DLC. They release an unfinished pile of buggy unplayable crap and their focus is on DLC rather than a playable game.

This strategy needs to fail, so that we end up with playable games and not dlc-milking buggy bull.

I realy enjoyed the game but I hate that it’s completeley bugged. Iv finished he game and it had a good storyline, but I’m so pissed off that I can’t even get married or adopt kids because when I go to select a house to live in, it glitches out because A button is broke and then I can’t backup because that’s broken too. It’s a really good game but lionhead really needs to stop fucking around and do a decent job instead of screwing up the game by filling it with endless glitches

I’m having problems with earning money myself. I’ll buy shops and what not to earn money and over a very short amount of time the money I make from them starts dropping off. I don’t get it. Yea, once I’m king and everybody dies there’s a good reason but still…..why?

I asked him to back out of my game and he did after that I was able to jump down onto the ground in front of the princess and Barron.

I love this game but have had to start over 3 times i was 37 hours into my first game and was playing coop and went to open a door in aurora and fell,through the ground into some kind of freefall then my game saved right when that happened. Restarted game and made it 12 hrs into this one when the wizard storytelling mission glitched and wouldnt let me proceed and finish the quest . I love the game but cannot make it to the end so i paid 65 dollars to just get pissed. They put out a patch… Read more »

Yeah problems galore – but I just had slow downs. Maybe the newer machines cope better. I agree that Peter should have done more play testing and let us wait an extra month for this to come out. He was so optimistic about the experience, but I think he had huge issues with the game and had pressures from the stakeholders. Nobody in their right mind would release a game that has so many bugs, that has a huge following. Peter has a great mind, and he cannot be blamed totally, but he is the person in charge of the… Read more »

I think that the original fable game is the best game of all time and lion… Have f* it up they have gradually made it worse mostly by limiting the clothes I loved having plate armour now there is only 1 set of metalic armour the rest is crappy stuff like a pirate suit or princes outfit I hate that and also they have f* the shops up by only allowing you to pick stuff off a table and also your body features or sh*t I loved the fact that you could be the same size as a small car… Read more »

I WISH PEOPLE WOULD JUST ACCEPT THE FACT SOME GAMES HAVE PROBLEMS WHEN THEY FIRST COME OUT ESPECIALLY WHEN ITS SUCH A HUGE GAME, THEY WILL FIX ALL THE PROBLEMS, AND THEN EVERYONE WILL BE RIGHT BACK INTO FABLE AGAIN. I'M HAVING PROBLEMS ON THE DARKNESS INCARNATE LEVEL AS I CAN'T GET WALTER OUT OF THE CAVE SO CAN'T MOVE ON IN THE GAME. I HAVE REPORTED THE PROBLEM AND I'M SURE THEY WILL FIX IT SOON.

I'm on the chiken chaser mission and every time I go to put on the chicken costume, I get stuck. I cannot return back to the game. I have tried several times and nothing works. I am able to get to the costume area and put on the costume, but I cannot return. I have hit every single button and still nothing works. FIX THE GLITCHES MAN.

That patch pulled out is BS, my strong character is still underground in a falling glitch is bull it’s happening to everybody, I might not buy another lionhead, I agree with the comment, lionhead F d up on this on. All my family was goin to buy but after I tell them, they definitely won’t. Limited collectors edition waste of money.

we did the chicken chaser quest and can't buy the house of cluck. also, there is only one prostitute at the mercenary camp and no more anywhere else. The prostitute is a dude and no women to be found. also, the gift wood for driftwood quest isn't showing. Glitch, or did we do something wrong? any ideas?

Jamel Pearson

the game needs more clothing more magic more people to fight. like its mad boring. i need more locations with a ton of items to shop for. i have 63 million in gold from my houses and cant spend the money at all. wtf i need more for $80 bucks i spent on this. also this problem about me not earnin g guild seals and i havent opened all my chest on road to rule.

Jamel Pearson

wtf fixxxxxxxx my game i cant earn guild Seals for fighting or for interacting with villagers. Are you kiddding me i brought the collectors edition for this fixxxxxxxxxxxx my game.

My friend asked me to join his game (he is about half way, I just started). Now I said yeah sure and joined, after a while of fighting I noticed I just earned 258 guild seals before I left to go play on my character, yeah I was really happy… until the point where I noticed I couldn't earn anymore until I finished a quest… that's when everything went downhill glitches here, there, everywhere. Got stuck and couldn't move and sanctuary got glitched. So, does anyone know how to at least fix the guild seal bug,

I personally like the game. agreed that fable 2 was a much better game as far as more things to do… Only Problems i've came across is the uber lag sometime but a lot of games have that no biggie… the one that does piss me off is the fact that i actually took the time to collect all the keys and flowers but it says im missing one of each. now i know for a fact that the keys are glitched i spent hours going through mistpeak valley because i am somehow missing one there even tthough the 7… Read more »

Another big release game filled with bugs and content cut out and simplifed to appeal to the casual gamer.. We have to stop buying these glitch ridden, watered down games to send the developers a message! we want game that DONT crash and mess up all the time AND we want games to stop holding our hands and guiding us through like a video game nanny!

honestly, number one was the best, but number 2 was just their, the storyline was completely a waste. however number three is fun, i havent had any problems with mine, the whole wings thing not staying out kinda sucks but apparently you can glitch your game to keep them…..i dont exactly want to risk my xbox on that though….haha! hopefully lionhead will be making a fourth one…btw, im ok with talking to one person cuz i hate the bastards that follow me everywhere ….stupid stalkers

5) lion head should also look at people's comments not just the brown nosing 10 year olds that play the game, 6) this game had so much good promise. A good story line and a good backing of people who loved fable 1 and 2. And a good history. 7) lionhead needs to get their head from up there arse and realise they released a game that still had s good 6 months of work left scrap fable 3 as a massive mistake and take the time to release a good fable 4.

Hold hands feature is messed up, shouldn’t have to disengage a quest NPC after they are finished talking just to hold their hand, I only got annoyed at this while doing date quests for a weapon upgrade, but still it happens on most hold hands quests and it shouldn’t be a problem.

Executor

The game obviously lacks content in the sense that no one should beat this thing in 8 hours or less. Really its been nothing but a straight line game with a large lack of side quests and it has basically streamlined my gameplay towards the main quests. After I see the credits roll there is pretty much jack shit other than doing quests such as finding a mans wedding ring. Yes I agree with lionheads humour but the lack of content is just crap

the game sucks bad. fable 2 was much better, and fable 1 better than that. fable series gets worse with each installment. and now were slammed with this buggy piece of crap. First, were given the ability to play with our friends online and local with our own characters, but with this, they took away uniqueness. Everybody looks the same because there is hardly any clothes to choose from. Second, the game is very buggy. I jumped a fence in aurora and got stuck in a rock, reloaded, had a friend try to push me, everything. i had to restart… Read more »

I personally had no bugs on my play throughs, but the game just wasn't the same. 1) Bring back Expression Wheel – I am sick of dancing with just one person at a time, when I could have easily just had a crowd of people. Getting only 1 seel everytime was abit time consuming. 2) More Weapons – Cleavers, Axe's, Katanna's, Crossbows etc. be brought back AND morphable. 3) Equal Choices – I felt the choices when becoming King/Queen were uneven. Waste money to save the people but get them killed off anyway, or gain money and everyone hate you?… Read more »

All they need to do as add a bunch of more new items for cloth and spells also they need a new dog breed and better animations and make the game play smooth and have the options to wear your demon/angel wings and looks outside of charged attacks and expressions

I completely agree, they've taken away so much more than they've added. They seem to have been obsessed with reducing interface but in doing so have really ruined the game. Am upset to hear being evil makes things unavailable, seeing as the shops are so rubbish already. Really hope they patch the expression thing, it really gets me that you can't choose. Just really bothers me. Fable 2 was so much better.

I have to agree with the above comments, however I'm not upset so much about the new game mechanics but with the overwhelming impact of the glitches and bugs, i can't earn guild seals from expressions or kills and because of this my weapons wont upgrade, and when i got to the "Gone but not forgotten" quest i got locked in it and had to start over. I love Fable and so does my wife but this is bull****.I can't enjoy myself when i play because i know it's gonna screw some where down the road. I should get paid… Read more »

I.E: less clothes, less expressions. you would think with the updated multi-player that there would be more clothes so as to be more uniquely different than your guests. I normally play through an entire game as a good character and play a new game as an evil one the second time around, But I'm already so F-ing bored that I couldn't bare to go through all this BS again to be evil.
