Cuphead Forum  /  I need help with a softlock

so when i exit to map or talk to the kettle i still softlock after i get the three coins from the apple man


you probably left to main map during dialogue with kettle (or other npc), this is known as text storage which is not allowed in speedruns and also can softlock game like this, restarting the game should fix this issue

Yeah, I'm curious as to why it's not allowed as well. I mean, no one would even want to do something that crashes the game. So why even bother banning it?


i think there's a change which there's not dialoge at all and u justt get the coins for what i hear. since u have to setup it before runs i guess is a unfair advantage

Ohhhh. I see. So it can actually be used advantageously. Thanks.
