Question about Ubi Soft Entertainment Grandia II for Dreamcast

1 Answer

Grandia II Dreamcast hangs after battle

I just got to the fissure with the floating eyeballs in the Area Dream story. Every time I fight something in the cave, the game hangs after I win the battle. After the points are awarded, the screen fades to black as it usually does before fading back into the gameplay, but it just stays black. Has anyone experienced this glitch? Is there anything I can do?

Seeing as the game hangs after the sequence and not after doing a specific thing then I would call it a reading error rather than a glitch.

All I can say is to check your discs for deep scratchs and smudges and to give the game disc a good cleaning.

Disc based game media commonly has this problem of hanging in very random areas and sometimes even odd artifacts, though that is usually rare.

Also some game shops have disc rebuffering services and can be worth it despite the cost.

Also a chance the Dreamcast's laser is malfunctioning, check other games for simular problems that are known for running fine.
This problem is usually rare with good care however and shouldn't be the case.

I suggest cleaning and possibly getting the disc rebuffered if all else fails as this appears to be a common disc reading error.

[LA03]
> > L A H K E S I S & A T R O P I S < <

Like I said, this is one hell of a battle!

>> Attacks (Atropos):

- Energy Shot: Atropos will fire a green energy shot towards Kratos. It
follows him a bit, but not as bad as the last round.
+ How to avoid: Roll or deflect.

----------

- Energy Beam: Atropos will start from one side and fire out an energy beam
then move it horizontally over the floor of the whole room.
+ How to avoid: Jump (double jump) or grapple. You can also stand by the wall
closest to her mirror on the opposite side of whatever side that she fires
the beam from. For instance, if she starts from the left, stand on the far
right side closest to the mirror.

Now Kratos is back in the Temple of the Fates with Lahkesis. Atropos is
trapped in another time where the past Kratos is about to defeat Ares. Atropos
can still attack during this battle however. She will be able to get half of
herself through the mirror and will shoot energy shots and fire a beam.
Atropos will retreat back into the mirror each time Kratos approaches the
mirror that she is attacking from. You can also deflect her energy shot back
at her to make her instantly retreat.

Lahkesis will have the same exact attacks as the last fight for this battle,
but she will alternate between flying and simply floating near the ground. You
need to go after Lahkesis first of all. Use Cronos' Rage to put a constant
hurt on her and do not let up with your attacks. Her life range for stunning
her is much shorter during this battle compared to the last. She will
eventually fall to the ground and lean over after taking enough damage. Notice
how her forehead glows at that time.

Quickly use the Amulet of the Fates as Lahkesis falls to the ground to slow
time and find the mirror that Atropos is hanging out of. Run toward the mirror
and attack Atropos as much as you can. She will fall over to the ground after
enough attacks and will retreat into the mirror at it cracks. Use constant
attacks once time resumes while the mirror is cracked to shatter the mirror
permanently. Fail to break the mirror in time and it will renew itself and you
will need to go through the whole sequence again.

Lahkesis will attack once again as the mirror breaks. Go back to wearing
Lahkesis down once again until she falls then quickly use the Amulet of the
Fates and find Atropos' mirror once again.

>> Attacks (after 2 mirrors are destroyed):

- Energy Pillars: Lahkesis summons electricity all around her then releases it
in flying pillars toward Kratos.
+ How to Avoid: Stand between the waves.

----------

- Energy Gust: Lahkesis summons electricity around her that will stay for a few
seconds.
+ How to Avoid: Stay away from her immediate area.

Once there is only one mirror left, Lahkesis will float over to it and stand in
front of it to protect the mirror. She will perform a few new attacks at this
time in an effort to guard the final mirror. Atropos will not attack at all
during this phase. Be sure to roll away from Lahkesis when she unleashes an
energy gust around her and it starts to stack up into pillars. She will
unleash several energy pillars at that time and you must stand in between them
in order to avoid them. She will also still shoot her energy shots, but she
will shoot more of them at a time. Reflect her energy shots from a distance to
help out in damaging her.

Lay out Cronos' Rage orbs near her and attack her from about mid range just in
case she performs her energy pillar move. You can also stand at a distance, in
between the waves, and fire Typhon's Bane - she will shoot energy shots at you
if you do this, but you can always deflect them. Once she falls, she will have
an icon over her head, so quickly tap the O button to start the Action
Sequence.

*******************************************************************************
* Action Sequence *
*******************************************************************************
* Kratos leans toward her and picks up her staff then [LEANS BACK] and hits *
* her on the back with it while she tries to get up. Kratos picks her up *
* and throw her to the middle of the room. Atropos crawls out from the *
* mirror behind Kratos and grabs him. Lahkesis recovers then readies her *
* staff. Kratos [NOTICES] the attack and quickly breaks out of Atropos' *
* grip and grapples to the side grapple point as Lahkesis flies toward *
* Atropos and stabs her with the staff. Kratos [SWINGS] toward Lahkesis *
* and grabs her then holds her and [STABS] her directly in the forehead *
* with his blade. Kratos pulls out his blade then pushes her into the *
* mirror to join her sister. *
*******************************************************************************

Now that both sisters are in the mirror, you must break it to end the fight.
The interesting aspect about this part of the battle is that you can take all
the time you want to gloat in your victory before breaking the mirror. The
mirror is broken and they cannot fix it. Go get yourself a soda and take a
restroom break while the game remains unpaused then come back and shatter the
mirror to end the battle.

Fun Fact: You can still use the Amulet of the Fates while the two are trapped
in the mirror. Time will instantly resume, but it still amuses me that it
actually works at that point.

Hi Re-Be,

 

My Best guess on a solution would be to disassemble the Dream cast and clean up any dust and lint that haas built up inside the unit.  This is about the main thing that knocks the power out in the fashion you describe.

If your not confortable with doing that, My shop called the Playstation Clinic works on Dream casts. Contact us through my website www.playstationclinic.com

Best of luck and I do think you will have the dreamcast back up with a good cleaning.
