So the Exploiter Orb mission is really buggy, which has been the main reason I've been putting off getting my remaining part for Hildryn (just need the chassis), and today I tried my luck and was greeted by having to try to do the entire fight without gaining any information. During the intro scene when Mommy Exploiter comes down into deck 12, the HUD disappears for a while during her little bit of monologue, though usually you get it back soon after. I did not. I could not see my health, ammo, energy, damage, nothing. I was fighting with the HUD permanently off. I tried turning it on and off again in my settings, but that did not change it.
I have several images to show different parts of the battle. I was hoping that perhaps after getting to Phase 2 it would load back, but alas that did not happen.
I should mention in this picture you do not see the heat bar because I got off one of her parts. When it is time to throw thermia at her to warm her up again, you do get to see that bar, but that is it.
This was to show that if you pick up things like Oberon parts and blueprints, then that will show up. Normal pickups like polymer bundles and energy are not shown.
I should also mention that I got no indication of picking up mods except for the sound you get for picking them up.
That's all the information I can think of right now, but if there are questions for more information, please contact me. I am available most of the time, so I will most likely respond rather quickly.
Okay, so bl1te commented a possible cause of the bug from his own personal experience, so I decided to test it out. I just did another run to test it, and he was indeed correct. When Exploiter Orb comes into Deck 12, if you press escape and enter the menu while the HUD has been obscured, it will stay obscured. Hopefully this will help with figuring out where in the code to go.
