I downloaded the game at Thanksgiving and have been enjoying it and playing it extensively for the past month, LOVE the game. I managed to figure out how to do all the various tasks, either on my own or with a little help from online posts (thanks by the way).
But, I am having a couple of issues right now. Issue number one: I like to review my prisoners from time to time...check if any hidden traits/reputations have been revealed...you know, before that Snitch gets killed. I had been able to just go to the Prisoner view and systematically go through them one after another. My latest prison has 400 +/- prisoners, so it can be a time-consuming process, but when I finish viewing one prisoner, I can go back to the Prisoner window and simply slide to the next prisoner...one after another. Except, the other night, it stopped working that way. Now whenever I open up the Prisoner window, it goes back to the Death Row inmates by default, forcing me to click up/down to get to the correct security level and manually click right to the last prisoner I was reviewing. You ever try to do this when you have 175 Maximum Security Prisoners? It was working fine two nights ago, annoying to constantly have to reopen the Prisoner window, but at least it was opening up where I left off...now it's excruciatingly frustrating to manage my prisoners. I have basically just ignored my gray, orange and red prisoners since there are 100+ of each, leaving the review my Super-Max, Death Row and P.C. inmates the only viable, non-time consuming option. Is this something that is supposed to happen when the prison population becomes large? Or is it a glitch? Or is it just a case of memory on the Xbox 360?
Issue number Two: whenever I reload a saved game, I'm finding my Legendary prisoners have lost all but one of their traits/reputations. Same goes for some of my Death Row prisoners, and many of my PC, Max & Super Max prisoners who have multiple traits. This is not an issue with them losing them over time, either. I've played for 6-12 hours STRAIGHT, and found NO changes in prisoner traits. But if I bring in a new Legendary prisoner, save the game, go back to the main screen then RELOAD my new save...I come back and traits are dropped. What's the deal? I assume it's just an Xbox 360 issue, as I haven't seen anyone else posting about this on PC or next gen consoles. Am I the only one this is happening to? I keep coming back to find a bunch of super max guys that don't need to be there anymore, so I switch them back to max-red. PC guys lose their "snitch" trait or "ex-cop" trait, but keep their "quick" or "tough" trait, so I kick them back to gen-pop. Not a huge deal, but when a rare Legendary Prisoner comes into my prison, and loses 6-7-8 traits to just become a plain old prisoner...it kind of takes the drama out of the game.
