When attempting to move the protagonist in the prologue, the game will softlock. The character will move, but no menu will appear and pressing B does nothing. The music still plays and the enemies still go through their idle animations. Warping to other chapters reveals this happens when attempting to move any character.
I really have no idea what could be causing this or how to fix it. I’ve found a 3 year old thread talking about the same problem, but in that case they were exclusively using Event Assembler, whereas I haven’t used it once on this ROM yet. Has anyone ran into this same issue before?
