Previously I had two separate issues on Penny Dreadful 2.

Now it happened on The Creeps

 

Going to try a clean install after you all have the chance to download the save.

The only item in that room that I can't frob is the coin purse in the cabinet.

 

Is that what you're referring to?

Yep.

Did a clean install, and couldn't frob it then either.

Something is definitely happening.

 

Other than this, I had an issue with Penny Dreadful 2 on two separate occasions with two separate pieces of loot.

When you can't frob something, it's nothing to do with your install, it's a positioning problem with the item. Usually it needs to be moved or 

lifted a bit. I had this with the Stewards diary in my manor and that's how I fixed it V


I have a small YouTube channel making videos on a variety of games. Come and have look here:

Although if an object was frobabble in a previous release and isn't any longer, and the map hasn't changed, that's a problem.

I tried the mission with 2.01 and had no problem frobbing the two bottles and coin purse inside the cabinet.

 

I also verified that I can't frob the purse in 2.05 (not using the savegame; so it's not a savegame problem).

 

So we killed it somewhere between the 2.02 and 2.05 releases.

 

I'll create a bug report.

Can verify, it worked at a friends house who was still on the previous versions of TDM.

This is not map-based.

So far, testing with SVN, I'm seeing the trace line from the player's eyes to the purse striking a frob-blocking entity which shows as much larger than it really is. This 'hides' the purse, so it's impossible to frob. Will continue tomorrow.

I can link one of the other saves if it helps any.

A few months ago I played through nearly all the DM missions.  It was excellent.  

But there was a problem with frobbing in several missions.  
I used the showloot command, which I've now forgotten, to verify that the impossible to frob items were indeed loot.  But I couldn't frob them even with noclip.

 

I guess I should've reported the problem, but I didn't want to complain.
