Difficulty system messed up (Skill = -1)
 
I'm playing 'pursuit'. At this time I have died A LOT of times (10 times or more on this level). I get SWARMED by guys with miniguns. I started the game with both sliders at the fourth setting, so the game should get easier, right? I guessed that that should be equivalent to the normal setting, a little bit harder than the default.

In the Stats-dialog the Skill reads now -1.J# and the Challenge is 0.00. At this point in the last savegame I have 12 health left, I only got there by saving every step, I die as soon as the car stops at the gate because even a shotgun pellet kills me instantly.

I'm really hoping that this is a bug, because I don't think that I'm a bad player. When I quit the game and reload the last savegame the Skill is 75.05 and the Challenge setting is 46, as soon as I die it goes to -1.

any advice?

Thanks,
jdelic

Are you in the car?

Have you been alive for at least five seconds before dying?

-1 lol! that in and of itself is an acheivement, i salute you!

so are your sliders one fourth the way from the left or the right?
(it could be that simple)

it could also be over compensation...

maybe try playing a little longer... grenades help against the heavy gunners

yes, I'm in the car. Before I stopped playing last night I consistently managed to kill the first wave of enemies that come out of the building where the "gate controls" are located by throwing grenades out of the car at exactly the right time, so they explode in the doorway when the enemies spawn. So I live longer than 5 seconds. In my last attempt I then got shot by a guy halfway through the level with a shotgun... so I stopped playing :-).

As I said, if I quit and restart the game, the Skill and Challenge settings have different values. I guess what you're implying is that the stat screen updates only after 5 seconds of gameplay?
