    Falling through the map

    Post by BrotherBob on Sat Oct 06, 2012 6:38 pm

    Has anyone ever had an "out-of-game" experience, literally falling through the map. I'm just wondering about the causes. I once was invaded at the Kiln. I executed a backstab wherein the other player's feet were at around my character's waist (due to the jagged hilly landscape), and my character just fell right through the floor.

    I've been parried in the Catacombs by the skellies on a slope.
    I fell through the floor shortly afterwards.

    I think it's just something to do with slopes.

    Yeah, you're probably right. Nice pic by the way!

    It happens sometimes when you're have a phantom in your world (most of the time they BS/parry you through the floor).
    But it can also happen if you walk through a fog gate the wrong way (the one in the butterfly forest does this often).

    Yeah. That fall was kind of like the fifteen-second falling scene in "Journey to the Center of the Earth". I can only wonder what my opponent saw.

    If you take shortcut through the level. I can only think of the PW and the butterfly area right now.
    Video - at 8 min you see how he takes the shortcut, and at 22:30 you see when he walks through the fog gate.
    It doesn't happen every time, but it happens often.

    I once fell off the map when using the first elevator in New Londo.

    Wow, this game seems a bit more bugged than I originally thought.

    Not really, it just happened me once, and was in the first version of the game in PS3 (right after launch).

    The Op is on to something with the hilly landscape reference.

    Just yesterday while invading Sens Fortress level 50 I ran across a host and we battled in the beginning area.

    He managed to touch a summon sign and eventually said summon appeared and proceeded backstab fishing me.

    We did that thing on the steps where you backstab each other and the damage is negated on both sides. I BS'd him first in the animation and he got me at the end of the animation. Before he pushed me off of his blade, while still on the steps, he fell into the steps and out of view.

    I proceeded to parry rip the host back to his bonfire. The phantom died about 10 seconds after vanishing into the floor.

    The ultimate lesson that we can learn from this post seems to be to never try to backstab (at least not on slanted areas anyway lol) unless you want to take a nice ten second free-fall towards the center of the earth! big grin

    I feel through the map while fighting the gaping dragon. Was about 2/3 through the fight, when suddenly my pyro is failling through grey nothingness...

    Saved and quit, and when I reloaded, had to start killing the dragon all over again...

    I fell through the ground in the Duke's Archieves on the way to the Crystal Cave. I went outside to the area where the Crystal Giants are located.

    I got the crystal armor, and then tried to go back to the fire. I went up the ladder, but a dead body blocked my path. It was stuck between the ladder and the platform. There was a Crystal Giant below me trying to hit me.

    I slid down the ladder, through the Giant, and then through the floor.

    That is amazing. Like I said, this game is way more bugged than I originally thought.
    @WandererReece: I love that story with the Crystal Golem though.
    @edgie_za: That's a shame that you got that far and then the game decided to remove the ground below your feet!
