In chapter one, I just finished securing the work site. I am now prompted to build a rig. I look at the structure, hold the triangle button, select the rift extractor, place it so it is green on top of the old one, click x for build... and then nothing.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It's a bug. Happened to me before.
Just restart the level and it should work next time.
It won't happen often but sometimes the game's story mode gets stuck at checkpoints. Thank the play testers at Sony for not correcting (or finding) little issues like this.
In this case, I'm supposed to build it on top.
When the scene concludes, you will be instructed to build a Rift Extractor in the place of the old rig. Hold triangle to bring up the menu, then select the option at the top of the wheel. Position it in the designated area to create the Rift Extractor.
I started the entire game over, and it's still not letting me build the first extractor!!
Wow, never happened twice in a row for me and I've played it dozen of times.
This is right after the old Union rigs explodes (when one of the guys repairing it gets blown back), correct? You've clear out the baddies and then Cutter tells you to drop one of your own...so we are on the same page.
I'll retry it and see if there is some other trigger I may have missed.
Okay when it asks you to build a rig do you get the yellow outline when you try to place it but it doesn't turn green and let you place?
That's the bug I have encounter before. Or is it something else?
The game has AIDS. There is simply no cure for it's endless problems, and the more it's infected with the more we're stuck with.
The game has been abandoned for the most part and campaign has become a monumental task since all the patches for multiplayer affect the campaign.
