Ok, if YOU or any one else have the bug where you put the fog injector on Edmond's ship, then he does the race and wins, then you talk to him and Julian, make the aether boiler, and then Irving messages you to find the aether injector, THIS IS WHEN THE BUG HAPPENS!!! When you try to get out of the pits, you can't, and if you use the ship radio and get out, it resets the story line. IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW HAS THIS BUG PLEASE POST THAT YOU (or the other person...) HAVE IT SO THE BUG FIXERS AT THE AETHERLIGHT WILL KNOW WHO TO HELP!!!!!!!! Thank you.
@Mech_Lightspark should be able to help you.
(I personally have already been bumped through by @Mech_Lightspark and have finished Episode 3's storyline.)
