I'm sure you'll be fine Smile All it contains is the transcript, really, which should already be available on the wikia AFAIK in a much easier format.

But looks like that file is correct. Specifically I was looking at the part you mentioned was skipped:
[br][voice Diary_CH01L01_DanielNote_04.ogg][br]One last thing. A shadow is following you.

It does reference the audio file, so at least they didn't just forget to add it. Then it must simply mean that the audio file fails to load for whatever reason, so perhaps the log file will say anything. Could you upload the HPL.log from .frictionalgames/Amnesia/Main/ ? Make sure you've ran the game and encountered the issue first, so the log will be up-to-date.

Just in response to clarify your anxiety, don't stress, you're in the clear Wink

Phew, glad that's all cool, then. That would have been ironic.

So yeah, I was wrong earlier about how it skips the same part every time. I may have been a bit hasty and not done enough iterations when attempting to reproduce the bug. It's actually worse.

When I loaded the save up again to trigger the bug and save a log, Diary_CH01L01_DanielNote_03.ogg skipped instead of ...04.ogg. I quit the game, started it up again, and the very next time I grabbed the diary page, ...01.ogg was skipped and the rest played fine. Third time around, the entropy gods were feeling particularly capricious, because it played the entire diary entry without skipping any parts. So it appears the bug likes to randomly choose which file not to skip, if it chooses to skip anything at all. I wish I had better news.

Here's the hpl.log from when the ...01.ogg file failed to play:
.log  hpl.log (Size: 6.94 KB / Downloads: 1)

That's bothersome. I can't see anything in the log regarding it, but it looks pretty clear to me to be some sort of loading failure. Here's the extract, for convenience, from start of load to start of exit:

I'm afraid I don't know where to take this. Like I said, I've encountered this myself on the Mac version, but was never able to find a fix, and I would guess it's a bug deeper down. Best I can do is pray to Luis!

Not Solved RE: BUG: Portions of journal entry narration are missing/skipped.

I've got a friend coming over on the weekend who owns ATDD. He's also on Linux, but he's running KDE Neon, as opposed to my Arch Linux. I'm hoping it's just an issue of certain bleeding-edge libraries on my end. Neon's packages are more stable and conservatively released by comparison, so it might make a difference.

I'll post my results if I can manage to get the NVIDIA drivers on his system to work.

Hi! Thanks again for such extensive research, hope we're not taking up too much of your time.

I will put this on our bug fix backlog, and keep this thread as a point of reference. Can't promise a quick fix, but we'll take a look as soon as we can!

Your friendly neighbour the community manager.
