I love this games concept, the story, graphics, etc. That being said I'm also very close to never playing it again. I'm about 3 days in, gametime, and still figuring out the mechanics so I use the walkthroughs online for side missions and they say distract the bobbies by throwing a glass bottle or bribe them with scotch. When I throw the bottle one of two bobbies leave and the other will not. When I bribe them the scotch disappears from my inventory but nothing else happens but a momentary pause in the game. So I try another mission and the same thing happens. I've wasted an at least an hour yesterday and another one today with zero progress. I've seen similar posts here with no resolution, what gives?
I'm playing on PC, Steam, build 1.5.72378 . The prompt to bribe bobbies seems to appear or not appear almost randomly. There doesn't seem to be any reason as to when it does or does not appear. When the prompt does appear, bribing doesn't work. Most of the time when I attempt a bribe, things pause as if an animation is playing (I can't move for several seconds), and the Scotch (or other alcohol) disappears from my inventory, but nothing else changes. The bobby doesn't act as though he's consumed any alcohol afterwards. Occasionally I'll find a bobby where the animation actually plays and he'll become intoxicated, but the majority of the time, I'm just losing scotch and not seeing any change.
