I had an interesting experience that I don't know how to categorize. If there's a better place to which I should send this feedback, please let me know.
I'm playing on XBox One. Prior to 1.4.71195, I was playing as Arthur and had made it as far as The House Of The Future before crashing every time I tried to enter the engineering lab at Arkwright. I stopped playing. When you announced the latest patch, I started a new game in Slot 2. I ran around in Eel Pie Holm, doing as many side quests as possible, trying to build skills, gather interesting loot, and get a new perspective on the story. I didn't delete the play through in Slot 1, figuring that either a) someday my prince would come, b) I'd build a more experienced Arthur.
1.4.71195 came out, I downloaded and installed it.
The next day, I thought, okay, Slot 2 Arthur, you've been great, but I really want to move on with the story. I selected Slot 2 and hit Y to delete.
Slot 1 Arthur disappeared. I was left with Slot 2 Arthur, who had significantly less experience. I sighed and decided to move on.
Played for a while. Got partway through The English Vice. Got into a fight, got beaten up, went on holiday. Hit A to continue. The game crashed. I called it a night.
I launched the game again the next day. Slot 2 Arthur was gone. Slot 1 Arthur was right where I'd left him, on a bench in front of Arkwright in the Parade District, at an hour and forty eight minutes to curfew. I tried to go back to the Fashion Institute, but the route was obscured on the map and shuttered off.
So. Is this a bug, or part of the game, that I have no choice but to spend the night in. Arkwright? Should I delete the game and reinstall it?
Thanks in advance for your perspective.
