In Undead Parish.. I spend an hour fighting and dieing to get to the point where I can trip the lever to open the portcullis in front of the curch... I run back to the bonfire under the dragon bridge, rest... when I come out, the portcullis is still up... sweet... I shut the game down (because my wife was staring at me)... I reboot a few hours later... the damned portcullis is closed again! The one at the top of dragon bridge is still open... why not this one???
