"The issue fixed itself on my latest game. And for those who complain about the bugs, as someone who has done coding in the past, they will happen, the more code you use. Sandboxes will be buggy. It's like the song"
This is why I hate programmers. They all have this mindset of there will always be bugs. Guess what, if you expect someone to pay full price for a game, they expect to receive an actual working game. You want full price for the game, I want an game that is actually full.
I think I found a solution for PC players. (for me atleast)
My current state of the game is that I have the oficial update PLUS the unovicial udate from the nexus mods site PLUS all the dlc's
my version of the game is 22.214.171.124.8 (versions shown in escape menu).
You indeed need to remove the book from your inventory to do this you need the ID, this is diffrent for every player so to find it thype in the console:
this will show a list of all your items in your inventory, however like by me this list is not fully shown because of the console text limit, so simply remove all possible items from your inventory and try it again.
now you should have your black book ID, and thype the following in the console:
"player.additem [black book ID] -1"
now you do not have the blackbook anymore, now thype:
"player.additem[black book ID] 1"
and now you have it and working, hope this worked for you.
I just found the ultimate solution for this glitch. While looking at the book point your cursor to one of the black holes and jump up. For a moment you will have the option to choose the perk! Yay!
I am having a problem getting into the apocrypha with this book. I entered, died, and reloaded in solstheim. When i tried to read the book again, (I loaded to before i read the book first), it didn't let me in. It just said, "learn the black book's hidden knowledge", but didn't take me anywhere.
I know it’s been a while but I am having the same problem. On my first play through. Somehow I have 2 books in my inventory. For me the first time I read the book I went in to the other realm, I was in the middle of a quest so I decided to exit and then as time went on I collected two or three more books but I did read those, got the perks at the end. But I still have the quest open for ‘the winds of change’. But somehow along the way somehow I picked up another book and it will not let me enter.
This worked for me on PS4. I had to jump up onto the book, and then pan around carefully to get the hit box to engage. It's the book right behind you as you emerge in Apocrypha.
Guys, you don't have to look at the holes in the book. Point at the green globes above the holes (look up!)
What do you think?
