Anyone got a way of getting out of this in-game without having to kill IV?
Or is this just a known bug and "deal with it"?

To elaborate on the image: I tried to catch the "most wanted" criminal in Steinway, all four of them split and went in four directions and while got two of them, two got away, and so the game announced it.

Now, when I select his name in the police computer's "Most Wanted" I get this screen and no amount of [Esc] gets you anywhere. In fact, no key gets you out except the magical combination of Ctrl+Alt+Del or Alt+Tab. Yes, I have crashed out of the game since, and STILL his name locks my game.

D'ya think I should register this as one of the things I WON'T miss about this f***ing game now that V is going to fix all?

Do you have any mods installed that might be causing this?
Can you try the same thing on another savefile?

Hiya Girish,
Nice to see you're still around and living up to your reputation as the most helpful mod. smile.gif
No mods installed (I wish!)
Unfortunately, don't have a second savefile. You're not thinking this is a permanent installed game glitch, are you?
Is this a known glitch? Because I have had it before, so I cannot imagine no one else has.

I can't be sure. I have never heard of such a glitch before though.

You can download a savefile and see if the glitch appears on it too. If it's a problem with the game, then first try deleting all files from the Settings folder. If that doesn't help, reinstall the game.
