I have posted the problem numerous time, sent an IM to a developer and yet nothing has been said on what to do to fix this issue.
On the second part of this mission, when IDing bothe the prostitute and Peter van der Graaf, I get the data transmited, but Mina says nothing, the sniper stays locked on to the target forever, and the game can no continue from there. I have reloaded saves/ reinstalled the game/ shot everyone/ reinstalled windows/ played a new game up to the same point to no avail, the issue persists and I want to know what Obsidian is going to do about it, because I payed my hard earned money for this game, waited for it for years and know I can not play it, because of a bug. Someone please help, this is driving me nuts.

Ok, downloading a torrent of the game and will see if that makes this damned section work.

I have the same problem, I have a suspicion it might have to do with previously buying intelligence relating to the mission but I can't test it because I purchased said intelligence at the beginning of Rome and the order I did the missions in has made this mission the last of the three initial ones.

I have a saved game before the mission and purchasing the intel... I will try out the theory and see if it has anything to do with it

Did you guys edit the ini files? I think that might be the problem. The game stuttered a lot so I changed some settings in the ini files, and it helped the stuttering. I started having problems with the game sometimes not progressing properly, though. I never had this problem prior to editing the ini files. So, I threw away the entire config folder that contained the ini files so the game could recreate them to their default settings. The game worked properly from then on. The game also seemed to have less stuttering, although it could just be my imagination.

If you didn't mess with the ini files then I'm not sure what to.

I have, but the game ran all around better, without a hitch, so I have doubts that it's that. Maybe the intel thing Orthae mentioned.

Just curious, what settings did you change? If you can remember. At least try moving your current config somewhere else, like the desktop, and see if the game's default config lets you progress the mission. Then you can move it back if there's no affect.

The intel that you can buy for the mission let's you ID people faster. I've finished the mission with and without purchasing it. I didn't see any difference other than the "ID bar" filling up faster.

Guess I'll make a copy of my inis and try that. That didn't work. Guess I'll see if I can dig up a saudi save and try no intelligence.

If I remember correctly, there are three people or four people to ID in that part of the mission: the prostitute/stripper, a guy to the left of the house, a guy to the right, and possibly a guy to the lower right. I might be mistaken about there being a fourth, but I'm positive there are at least three.

You don't have to ID the Stripper...you can continue without her...at least I could...

I can confirm that you don't have to ID the stripper. If scanning Peter van der Graaf halts the games progression try to ID everyone else then shoot him. Shoot any witnesses as well.

Another suggestion I can give is try uploading your save files here. I'll load it up onto my game and see if I can get past van der Graaf. If I can get to the third part using your save files I'll upload/attach it here. You won't miss anything because there is a checkpoint right after scanning everyone in the second part of the mission. Hopefully this should work.

Since the forums didn't allow .sav attachments. That's one of my saves on this mission at the 2nd checkpoint.

I tried doing the mission without any intel or the prior missions (gelato shop, listening post), to no avail.


I'll be curious to see if this save game exchange program will work.

Alright your save file worked for me. Here's the Save File its right after the second section. It's kinda annoying the forums don't allow .sav attachments. Hopefully I uploaded it correctly.
