this is a small guide on how to work-around a very awful bug that prevents you from completing the game 100%.
until it gets patched out…WHEN it happens.
so to begin with, one of the major bugs in this fairly buggy mess of a Lego Starwars game, is the Kyber Brick bug. (shown in the image below)
(Be aware, this only works with PC, as i do not know how to do the same with Xbox or PS, if this some how end up in your search results, i am sorry this will not be able to help but feel free to read on if you wish to know how this may be fixable.)
This bug in itself will force you to restart the game completely just to get 100% completion, for Achievement hunters (hardcore or casual), this is a nightmare, especially when you want to complete it quick like i did (on my third attempt now), the frustrating about it, no one seems to know how to really “fix” or “work-around” it.
After looking through some Discussion/Fix guides that either involving:
-Disabling Full-screen optimization
-Run as Admin
-Changing your GPU Clock speed down or up?
(which i do not recommend if you don’t know what you are doing, only because it may or may not develop a much worse problem, this is just over complicating an issue in a technical level)
(and this may be for different problems, however it did show up in my search to fix this bug)
As it turned out however, you just need to move and replace some files.
(as i just realized while making this guide, this particular quest “a search for knowledge” does not have a Kyber Brick, just a character…woops, but this will still help with the Missing Kyber brick bug though…Dodgy Dwellings……….
How to actually Work-around/Fix this bug Pt.1
Alright so first, you are going to need to know where to find “appdata” in your Storage Drive/Device
This is how you find it: This Pc\Local Disk\Users\(your user name)\AppData
It is much easier to type down “AppData” after you get your username address because sometimes it does not appear as an icon or on the drop down part of the address do to it being hidden…or just type down “%AppData%” as i just found out while typing this…woops.
After you find it, go to “Roaming” or if its already there by typing it, cool, this will be where you will find the “Skywalker Saga”, which will be in the “Warner Bros” now follow this:
\Warner bros\Skywalker Saga\SavedGames\Steam\(random numbers its been given, its the only file)
I have shorten the name files as its long to type here.
(It should be as shown as such)
Now why the Save slots? because one important .BLOB File is in the Slot 1 to (which ever number)file.
This one to be exact:
Make a copy of your Slot Files for when things go wrong.
How to actually Work-around/Fix this bug Pt.2
To continue from last section.
If you already have a another save (i.e. Slot2) then good, if not then you need to start a new game in a different slot.
(be careful not to overwrite the old game, it is salvageable this way, because other wise, you will have to do the story mode all over again, this will skip that process.)
If you happen to have a game where you did not do the buggy side quest(s), make a copy of that save file, it is important.
(Now a fare Warning before you do the next steps, be aware that if you do this after the bug has happened, this will revert every collectible Kyber Bricks/Characters/Ships/Side quests that you have done already, unfortunately this is something you have to know before the bug has occurred, but it does allow you to Redeem your progress in doing so, Bug free if possible, and you may have to make another copy for either 1 per planet completed, or every Side quest completed, do how ever you wish, just make sure you have a copy saved before the bug occurs again.)
Now from the New save slot (Slot 2) Copy and Paste “COLLECTABLES.BLOB” to the same “.BLOB” file on Slot 1.
After doing so, it should revert every Collectible (Kyber Bricks/Characters/Ships/Side quests), back to the starting point, and back to where it was, like a thanos snap, thus starting over.
(get those bugged quest(s) out of the way before anything else!)
Do those bugged quests, and if everything works, and if you get the character/Kyberbrick, Save a copy of that file, and go to the next, until all those bugged quests are done, then you dont have to worry again.
Again just to point out 2 of the Bugged Quests: “a search for knowledge” and “Dodgy Dwellings”, those screw me over twice, not anymore.
This has to have been the most frustrating bug there is in The Skywalker Saga, as many have said, how did this game got released in such a buggy mess?
I do not know, an it seems like it will not be fixed some time soon, till the next or the next after patch.
And while searching for a ways to fix this bug, no one seems to know how to actually fix it, and or give the same simple fixes literally just does nothing like “turn it off and on” type of answer, thats how i found the “run as admin” answer or the fixes for a Blue/black screen, which was irrelevant to what i was trying to fix.
Jank answers for Jank Bug if you will.
During my third restart how ever, i did come up with finding my save files to see if i can mess with them in Notepad, in such i found out it was saved in \AppData\ why?, i do not know, but it was there, turned out that it was a .Blob file, so opening it a no go, so taking the chance i thought maybe i can over write it with another save file, turned out that did the trick, but at the cost of starting almost over.
which is fine, now i was able to complete “Naboo”, because i was missing 1 brick that was some how non existent.
Anyways, enough of that ramble, hopefully this will help out with your mising Kyber Brick issue, and hopefully, you can 100% the game, at last!
That being said, Have a nice day/night, and Happy Achievement hunting!
PS: will this affect achievements in some way? im not sure, but i assume if copy paste the achievementsystem.BLOB may be able to affect it, but i would not try it, especially if you did not finish all the regions first, unless those achievements are bugged (which it happens) then maybe try it…at your own risk.
