MAJOR bug right before the Maerwald fight

Question

Hello!

 

First of all, LOVE the game, this is why I'm such in a panic to post this and see it resolved.  A game breaking bug happened this morning, as I spoke to Maerwald, listened to his rambling and initiated the fight.  I noticed the ranger pet's icon was suddenly turned white, I didn't pay attention to it due to the intensity of the fight but when it ended, I realised I couldn't find the wolf anywhere.  In fact, double clicking it just pointed to a point on the map which has nothing in it. 

 

Now, as much as it sucked, I figured "damn this will cost me a lot to dismiss this companion and create another one at the same level" but nope, I cannot leave any areas because I need to "Gather my party first".  Uh oh.

 

So...  plan B, I reload an earlier save but no, SAME problem.  Even if the save was before the fight.  So my group is litterally trapped because my pet companion apparently just... disappeared. 

 

So :

- Issue happened right at the Maerwald fight, right after he finishes speaking

- I checked the integrity of Steam's files, no good, didn't do anything

 

Please help!  I'll include a savefile, please advise!

Above is the link to download a zip with the three savefiles.  It includes the autosave, the save BEFORE and AFTER.  I've never seen a bug that applied to all saves before.  If I could get a fixed save by email, joelbouchard@videotron.ca I would be immensely grateful.

You could try to teleport out and see if transitioning from an area to another would not reload the pet. Here's how from another thread. Be wary, this will disable your achievements but this could at least provide a way out. Back up your saves first if you don't want to be locked out of achievements.
 

 

Open the console with the tilde key, type Enter and then iroll20s (THIS WILL DISABLE ACHIEVEMENTS!).

 

Then type AreaTransition AR_0705_Gilded_Vale North1

 

This will bring you back to Gilded Vale. You can use other area code, I found a list here : https://dl.dropboxus...8/poe-areas.txt

Okay, I tried that.  The pet did not reload even with a new map.

 

Also, does it mean the game's achievements are permanently disabled, or just for that save?

From what I gather, it is permanent. Is the Ranger your PC or a Companion?

 

EDIT: I'll try to play with your savefile tonight after work. There are couple console commands at http://rien-ici.com/iemod/console that I'd like to try. (Contrary to the website's name, there is actually something there :p)

Oh man that sucks for the achievements then.  And it's a companion.  Since I need to "gather forth my party" before entering anything, I can't even do the "remove her from the rooster as I exit the tavern".

 

I hope one of the devs can fix my savegame..

It's a companion.  By then I seem to already have broken the achievements (Any way to solve that?  Use another savegame entirely?), I'd really like to get this fixed.  What if I kill her, buy a new level 4 ranger (and it's very expensive) and the same bug happens?  Remember, ALL savegames were affected, that includes the one saved before that dungeon.

Try the ManageParty command, maybe it will let you dismiss her even if you are not in a proper area, I never tried it. Also maybe force transition to the tavern and do it from there. You're not the only one with that problem though so you can maybe wait for a patch.

 

Another solution might be to force re-spec the companion into another class through commands too, thus getting rid of the animal. Of course all of these disable achievements but at least you don' have to restart.

I appreciate the help, I also contacted the support email with my savegames, I hope to get a save fixed at least, or a patch.  This really sucks, I was really getting into the game too.

I know how you feel, I've been stuck in the Raedric's Hold pocket plane for a while now. Had to transition out but can't go back to finish the quest. I'm now way overleveled. I intend to restart once the game is more stable anyways. The patch is due this week, so finger's crossed!

Kill her, cheat yourself in the money if you like (though I have over 30k at level 7, I'm not feeling strapped for cash), and buy a new level 4 something that's not a ranger.

Yeah I could kill her..  but again, what if the new ranger has the same problem?  What if it happens in the next dungeon I go to?  I don't like having to cheat just to progress normally.

Well to be honest, "ignoring the ranger class" isn't much of a solution.  The immortal pet and the very fast rate of fire is a very solid addition to the group.

It's a solution that lets you progress with your game without cheating until it's fixed, but you certainly don't have to use it if you'd rather not.
