I had no intention of using it. I just looked around the harbor and found it missing. Boarding it probably works anyway, just like it does when you approach the missing ferry after the Esmer's takeover.

Twilight is a warez group which released a cracked version of LBA 2 back in the old days.

twilight were some kind of pirate cd that could be downloaded (or bought in the streets, here, since nobody had internet). In one of those there was lba2, and it had a few bugs. I remember you couldn't leave citadel island, or the game would crash. Thanks to that thing I've heard of LBA2 and I had my parents buy the original version of LBA2

Wasn't the crash actually when leaving the cavern after freeing the Weather Wizard? I remember the warez version would crash on that because they forgot to crack the code that looks for VIDEO.HQR.

Yes, the problem was with videos... remember there is a bug that lets you leave citadel island even if you haven't killed the tralu yet, and the game plays a video whenever you take the boat. So, either you kill the tralu or take the boat, the game crashes.

Yeah, indeed. It's some bug in the game code I think that causes a crash when VIDEO.HQR isn't found. Because if you notice, the Intro video doesn't cause a crash in such a situation, but all the other videos do. So I suspect a bug when calling the "show video" function from within the game.

ONTOPIC :

The ferry isn't there at the beginning of the game, to make it appear, you need to read the poster about the temple of Bù and maybe also buy a ticket.
(If I recall well.)

Maybe they hid in to discourage people getting on before they were supposed to (although I assume you still can).

Mmm... Buy a ticket, stand where the entrance of the ferry is supposed to be, select the ticket in your inventory and hit "enter".

This is one of the known bugs, I've seen this one before. The ferry is at some point missing, but you don't need it to be there to get in it.

I don't remember what causes the missing ferry, but we'll include this bug at the KBT later.
Supposedly it should not not be there.

I think he means his Knowledge Base project.

As expected, boarding the ghost ferry works fine:

The KBT stands for Knowledge Base Twinsuniverse, Battlers right. Read more about it in here or see my sig.

There's a lot of bugs out there and we found a lot of them, including this one. So at some point I was wondering about how to collect all of this knowledge in one place, so we can look it up and understand why something happens and how to work around them. It's also a very useful study for tackling some of the post-finish challenges we made up.

The project's on pause for a moment, because I had to take a break after half a years work. But I'll finish converting the older Twinsunica version and add our new content.

The ferry doesn't appear yet

in some cases a glitch occurs which means that the ferry only appears once you've called upon the wizard to conjure his spell from the lighthouse which clears the storm, it is only after the storm that the ferry appears this is not uncommon if it doesn't appear after the storm has cleared buy a ferry ticket and then it should clear
