Gunman Clive Will Have Glitches Fixed In The New Year

Posted by Andy Green

Second boss crash woes to be addressed

3DS eShop title Gunman Clive has been discovered to have a few glitches that can cause it to crash. Fortunately though, developer Bertil Hörberg has responded to it and is working on a fix.

In a post on NeoGAF, the developer wrote:

As I suspected, the train boss bug is a command buffer overflow, which should be easy enough to fix. There's a few other issues I need to look into as well and then there's the whole process of releasing a patch/update that I haven't really looked into yet. It could take a while, especially during the holidays.

For now users can lower the risk of encountering the bug on the second boss by turning off the 3D during the fight, as there are only about half the render commands in 2D.

We gave the game a glowing report in our Gunman Clive review — we didn't encounter the glitches — and hopefully this glitch and other issues mentioned by the developer will be fixed as soon as possible.

Have any of you come across any glitches in the game? Let us know in the comments section below.

yeah I got hit by the train boss bug. wasn't a big deal to be honest, but I'll happily download a remedy.

I didn't have the problem. I started my second run just now. I'm playing as Mrs. Johnson, she floats like Princess Peach. I love this game, so many details!



Squashie said:

I have the game and it really is quite awesome! I haven't noticed any glitches to be honest!

Suffered this glitch once, but it didn't bother me. It would be cool if the developer could sneak an exclusive level or two in the patch though

Seriously?? They better fix it asap... I always play my games w/ the 3D on. I'm still grabbing this game on Thursday regardless because the price is right, and it's a Mega Man clone.



MeWario said:

Yea it happened to me, first play through. it was simple enough to reset 3DS but will be good to get patched.

I've completed the game four times now with 3D constantly on. Haven't encountered a single problem with it personally, so hopefully it won't affect huge numbers of players.

@KnightRider666 Man I love my games in 3d. I almost get upset when people say a game shouldnt be in 3d. I payed for a playstation 2 powered 3d videogame machine and expect to see games that press the system. I would love to the all the megaman games converted to 3d Classics. Ive already played them in 2d and want see them on this cool 3d system in 3d. another cool series would the cstlevania games converted into 3d classics



Marakuto said:

No glitches have occurred when I replayed the game, but I do hope that this gets fixed.



HeroOfCybertron said:

Hopefully there will be a patch by Thursday (doubt it though) or I will have to put off getting Gunman Clive until the patch is released.



KnightRider666 said:

@Windy: Ditto. Why buy a 3D system if you're not going to play in 3D? I'd love to see Mega Man 1-10 in 3D! How about all the Zelda's from the Nes and Game Boy in 3D as well? Who's with Windy and I on this one?



MeWario said:

@HeroOfCybertron: Don't let it stop you. Game is great, and though the bug has crashed the game twice for me, it is simple to reset the system.
@Windy: I agree, I think the 3D generally looks gorgeous. Most games just look flat without 3D and I think it's a real shame that the 3D isn't more of a selling point for some people. The realism it gives games like Ocarina of Time, Kid Icarus and Resident Evil is stunning!



Windy said:

I would absolutely flip out if DraculaX from the PCEngine was ever converted into a 3D Classic. I can only dream there has been no talk of that. I really like Ocarina of Time. I should get into the Resident evil games they look great. I cant wait for Animal Crossing im in a group called Blue Rogues at Phantasy Star World and we have been waiting for that for online multiplayer. Phantasy Star Online would be an awesome addition to the 3ds, omg would my life go bye bye if sega would bring out just the original Phantasy Star Online to 3DS

Gunman Clive is still a first day purchase for me. Hopefully a patch will fix it soon. the game just looks to good in 3d to pass up. glitches or not the game seems tobe a perfect fit for 3ds. Im confident the glitches will get fixed and that will be that

@KnightRider666 want to trade Friend codes? I love online games. Let me know you can email me at Im an older gamer been gaming for about 30 years

I picked up Gunman Clive this morning and ran through the game to the first Boss. WOW just WOW. Gunman Clive is easily the best 1.99 game. it actually feels more like a retail release. Very polished, beautiful graphics and really good gameplay. I havent ran into glitches so far but just played it about an hour. I hope we see more from this developer. Great Job and thank you so much. I hope you sell a gazillion copies of Gunman Clive

I love Gunman Clive. I beat it on Hard mode in less than 2 hours. I did encounter the infamous train boss glitch. Just turn the 3D off when you get to him on stage 10 and you'll be fine. I'm going through the game again w/ the female character. I wish there were more than 20 levels. For $2 it's a steal, but I would have gladly paid more if they made it longer. Let's hope for a full fledged sequel. They've really got a winner on their hands here, no doubt about it!



Windy said:

I emailed you Back KnightRider. I beat gunman Clive yesterday on Easy Mode. I died quite a few times. The reflexes just are not what they used to be. However Gunman Clive is better than Half of the retail releases so far and to me is more fun than Cave Story. Cave Story is a deeper game, Clive just simply plays better. Its really fun to get a game like this with a different Graphic style. It reminds me of an old video from MTV called Take on me, I think the Band is Aha. This is exactly how I imagined most games should be on 3DS.



KnightRider666 said:

@Windy: I added you to my friend list on my 3DS last night. I didn't even try easy mode, I just went for the gusto on hard mode right off the bat! The band is Aha, indeed:) They gotta fix the glitch on stage 10 though. I hope they make a sequel w/ a much longer experience. I'd gladly pay more that $2 for that.
