      • Hamzah Hussain

        i found the solution, do not fight the guys before running in the cart instead, ride the cart as soon as possible and head toward ur destination. You need to reach ur destination before the dialog finishes.

        That worked for me

  • jonstryder

    My problem is this: While playing the game went to load a scene – faded to black and just stayed there. I powered off the PC and back on again and started the game up. The initial logo appeared like usual after clicking the icon to start it up, but instead of opening a window for the game (I play the game in windowed mode) it immediately turned my whole screen black. There is no way to get out of it without rebooting the computer.

  • Denis Stan

    I have this black screen problem too on sequence 5 (hijack the train), right before the cutscene cinemagraphic after releasing Ned from Popo’s carriage.

    So I forced closed the game (Alt+F4), then I run the game again (continue), then voila no problem at all. I was afraid going to lose my saved game (game data corrupted because I forced closed it on the loading black screen), cant imagine how many hours have I played to liberate London, fiuhh –“
