Mission Markers won't update / vanish after completing the task

Hi,

First of all, I really enjoy playing the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games. But for some reason in Call of Pripyat my missions won't update after a couple of missions.

It's the third time I restarted a new game, and halfway in the first map my missions stop updating . For example, I've found the gas canister and killed all the bloodsuckers with it, and even reported to Beard. But still there's an icon on the map telling me to find the gas canister. Same for the Noah mission and missing stalkers mission. Also when i find a stash, the icon doesn't dissapear on the map. And even when after I inspect all three of the helicopters on the first map, the icons won't dissapear, and keep telling me to inspect the choppers.

After some testing, I narrowed down the problem. When I start a New Game, I can play as long as I want without this "missions won't update" bug. I can save all I want without any problem, everything works. But for some reason, the moment I load another another saved game, or I die and load the last saved game the bug appears. From that moment all my missions stop updating even when I finished them, the examine chopper missions won't update and when I find a stash it doesn't dissapear from the map.

So the only way I could play the game without this bug appearing, is to start a New Game, and play it all to the end of the game, without dying or without any error to appear so I don't need te load a saved game.

Is there anyone who knows what's the problem or what causes it to act this way ? Please reply.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards

Hello and welcome,
First of all this does not sound like something that should be happening with COP 1.6.02. Is this the version your playing? Are there any other factors that may matter like is it a dvd version, digital, crack? I presume where talking about an unmodded game aswell.

Hi davideverett!

Thanks for the quick reply!

I played the game some years ago with a friends' CoP DVD and had no such problems (other PC that time). Recently i discovered the Misery Mod and bought the Green Pepper (Publisher) Edition of CoP. Out of the box i installed the game with the english speech presets and it shows the 1.6.02 version number in the main menue, when entering the vanilla game.

As said the problem occures with the Misery and the CoP reloaded 0.8 Mod. Even a complete reinstallation of the game doesn't fix this issue (incl. registry entry cleaning).

Running the game as administrator with the following specifications on my PC:
MS Win 7 64-bit SP-1
i7-2600k @ 3.40 GHz, 8,0 RAM, GeForce GTX 580

Thank you for helping!!

Best regards

I'm afraid I can't help, I've never heard of the Green Pepper Edition, I'm presuming that's a digital version. Does it have the problem without mods?

It's a dvd copy presumably as I found a few other green pepper games, It's german?

I found this http://www.mediamarkt.at/mcs/product/AK-TRONIC-S.T.A.L.K.E.R---Call-of-Pripyat---Green-Pepper,10255,346145,254729.html?langId=-15

So its the regular game and I'd guess the issues related to the localisation.

It can't hurt to try changing that. Are you in Germany and are you using the German version or am I totally off target? If you are there's a few german users here but you may get better help with particular issue from a local forum. This might be a simple issue thats been dealt with already. If you are a German copy user try asking on this forum.

Hi!

Yes, it's a german brand selling the product, but the content is the same as always (bitcomposer game / CoP). So it's just the plastic box around the DVD, i don't have the digital version, bearing their sigil, but the DVD itself has no "Green Pepper" markings itself.

As said i installed the game in english without problems and i run ShoC and CS with my years old copies without anormal, not stalker-ish related problems ... so could it really be that my DVD is too new, some "new edition feature"??

I discovered some guys in the Steam forums having the same problem (don't have the Steam edition, neither is the game connected to my Steam) - i'll try playing the game without mods to see if the bug still appears.
Indeed i registered to the Onlinewelten forums to get some help, but they seem to have some problems confirming registrations at that time, so i can't ask for help there unfortunately.

Thanks again for the quick reply!!

Best regards

Hi RK Roadkill !

I am not running the two mods simultanesouly in the same gamedata folder - as said the problem occurs while using, seperately, the CoP reborn 0.8 or the Misery mod.

Had no time yet to test, if the error appears w/o using any mods.

Best regards and thanks for the kind help!

Hello everyone again!

After some testing with a vanilla installation of CoP, i was not able to reproduce the error - but still, as soon as i use a mod named above, the error occures, and the markers won't update after a death.

So if i just put everything related to quests out of the folder ... it should work? Like if i am only using some texture mod, but how can such a problem occure, when others run the mod without such problems?

Thanks for helping!

Best regards

MISSION UPDATE BUG - INVESTIGATE THE CRASH SITE

Hello fellow STALKERs,

First and foremost, thanks for 0pium to the topic, finally somebody who's dealing with a similar issue like me and willing to share his experiences about it.

Now, I'm running Call of Pripjaty 1.0.6.2 + Complete MOD 1.0.2 and my problem is that I can't get an update for Investigate the Crash Site missions. I figured this out when I was about to see what happened with Stingray 5, but the same applies to every other cases as well.

Indeed, I can examine the choppers, then watch the in-game cut scene when the protagonist crouching next to them, but that's it. In theory, this is where I should get the "Mission Updated" message on my screen, but it never happens. Even worse that after the event everything remains the same in my PDA - the mission markers, the objectives, everything is still there. Of course, I don't have a second "Examine" option on the helicopter.

Here comes the interesting part. What makes my issue different compared to 0pium's is that I can complete / update quests and make looted stashes disappear from the map. Or to be more precise, I don't have any other problems at all. Frankly, before I found this thing out everything was perfect.

What I already tried is using various save games, uninstalling / reinstalling the mod, visiting different Stingrays - the result was always the same. The only occasion where I managed to avoid this bug is when I used the game's first auto-save (which has been made at the very beginning, just after the intro). In order to reduce the number of possibilities (like the OP's loading-related bug), I made a quick save before I approached the aforementioned Stingray and loaded that one - everything went in a proper way. Keep in mind, I already had the Complete mod installed when I made these experiments, but later tried with vanilla with the same result.

Obviously, the reason why I'm struggling to fix this because I don't want to lose my progression in the game, not to mention that it would be pointless to continue playing if I'm not able to complete the main quests... So that's all for now, every suggestions are very welcomed and thank you in advance for your help!

(Update: the post has been slightly edited to correct spelling and grammar mistakes.)

Complete is buggy for a lot of people, Some people manage to play it to the end but a lot do not. Those who have problems tend to not reach the end so personally I advise you cut your loses and try a more reliable mod.

Complete is based on Atmosfear 2, Absolute nature 2 and Absolute structures. There probally the best visual mods available and they have now been updated by Atmosfear 3 and Absolute Nature 3.

Presumably you got the Complete mod via Moddb. You can also get these mods there from the Atmosfear 3 page. There all available as auto-loader mods like Complete is so if you want an up to date improved mod that is not buggy cut your loses scrap Complete and use the following which can all be loaded straight on top of each other so it is simple to set up.

Atmosfear 3
Absolute Nature 3 (Lite)
Absolute structures

Note: Make sure you use the Absolute Nature 3 lite version.

You may find a fix for the Complete bug but chances are you will hit another so why waste time on a mod that is basically running on older versions of these.
