Cutscenes do not work
I bought russian steam version of the game (btw it's amazing ). Got a really annoying problem though. Most of the time before any cutscene game scripts don't trigger. For example, at the very beginning when Clay Stewart says you to get inside the house, I get there, but nothing happens. Clay just stays outside and the door is still open. It took me 4 or 5 times to trigger the cutscene. Same things happen along the whole game: fight with the kidnapper in the middle of 2nd chapter doesn't start, dialogue with dr. Hartman after he acquaints you with Odin and Thor in the beginning of the 4th chapter doesn't continue (I got there so far with this problem all the way). It also affects endings of chapters skipping the final scenes so I have to watch them on youtube's walkthroughs to understand what's going on.
I believe this problem is somehow connected with the fact that I push the buttons before the beginning of the scene and it skips because of that and corrypts the next trigger most of the time. But I can't guess when the next scene starts so I could put away my fingers from the keyboard. And sometimes it's very hard to do because of the fight or running from dark presence.
Can you help me with this problem please? It already made me crazier than Wake himself so far
My PC is Core i7 2600k, GeForce GTX 580, 24 gb of ram and Win7 home premium.
Thanks for reading this and sorry for my English

Re: Cutscenes do not work
as reported in another thread, we have a fix coming up for this.
The workaround should be to avoid controller (b) button, space, enter and esc in the first few seconds of a cutscene.

Re: Cutscenes do not work
A little addition:
the trickiest bug of that kind is in the 6th chapter after you enter a tunnel and walk out of it in the dark. if you miss a movie there you will be able to walk freely without enemies in the area ahead including magestic motel and the bridge. Sad thing is that at first you may not recognize it as a bug and proceed to the motel considering empty level to be a suspence element before the final fight. And then it's too late because checkpoints still work and you won't be able to restart from the point before the tunnel and trigger the movie.
Guess, this bug finally got me Only way now is to replay the chapter from the beginning and use the advise from Markus while heading to the exit of the tunnel. In such moments AW really misses good old PC saves
Thank God collectibles stay during such replay.
Hope this little bug report helps someboby.
