After victory in 5-3 i can't advance because Valeros can't pick a power feat.

This must be because he never selected a role and has no extra power slots. He must have died during the scenario where roles are selected.

Anyway, this story is frozen. He can't select a power and i can't advance to next screen. I can't forfeit and leave the story either.

Yeah, I'm having the same issue with Seoni at this same point.

There's another issue with 2 characters picking power feats at once in quest mode. Possibly related?

I am having the sMe problem in quest mode, in gets stuck and I can't level up all the heroes powers and move on. Which also means that I can't use quest mode, because it always brings me back to the level up screen when I start over. How can I get past this/when will this be fixed?

I finished the The Halls of Seduction and I can't move past the Power Selection screen.  Valeros has no open slots.  I'm sure this is because he did not earn a role earlier.  Is there a workaround?

Any chance you can link to that? I'm experiencing it right now, but couldn't find the relevant topic.

Yes it is very likely connected the problem of not being able to power up two/several characters at the same time. It lets me level up some but not all so I can't push the arrow to move forward. I don't get on these forums much. Do we expect the game administrators to address such problems promptly?

Usually. Aarik D is the community rep who cruises the forums and writes up the bug reports.  Though, he just finished up a 48 hour charity event (For the Kids!), so who knows if he's awake or alive or something.

 

Between that and the recent release of Tyranny, the inmates have been running the asylum for a while.  ;)

Short answer to your question: "no". OBS response rate is very variable and generally very low, you should consider this a community support effort. OBS largely just harvest bugs for their lists (which they fill up faster than they clear) and respond directly to issues related to payment and game/content access. Other than that, we're largely on our own.

Thanks for pointing this out troutman, I'll send this off to have it looked at further.

Morning all....new here, but just completed 5.3, and was on the power upgrade screen.

Sadly the paladin and Valeros already had all available power upgrades and are still sitting there with an explanation mark above their heads.

The blue arrow will not light until those have gone, and there's no way to do it.

Has anyone Elsie had a similar problem please?

Thanks

Out of curiosity, did you add those characters to a party in-progress?  Did they possibly miss out on a couple scenario rewards?

 

The only way characters could have all their powers selected by 5.3 is if they did not complete 3.5 Into the Mountains and never selected a role card.  Once a character has a role, they should have more powers available than the number of power feats that RoTR will even award. That is, in normal play, you should still finish the game with a bunch of unchecked powers.

Hi, oddly enough the 2 that will not advance did complete 3.5. 2 of those that did not complete it had enough slots. Going to try 3.5 again and see what happens. Thanks for the thoughts.

I too am stuck on the victory portion of 5.3. I have no options to choose for merisiel on skills and can't even forfeit since I'm on the victory screen. Please fix this bug and allow characters to pick their roles after they pass a certain point so that even if they died in a particular adventure they can still progress

Sorry pathfinders this is a known issue and we are trying to figure out the best solution here.

What happens is if a character skips picking their role for whatever reason, when they progress far enough so there is no Power Feat available to choose they cannot continue.

Niztael #2405 having the same problem. One of the characters did not complete Into the Mountains (must've died). Didn't think it was such a big deal. Now I'm stuck at the leveling screen after 5-3. Yes we understand the problem, the best solution would be to fix it on the very next update, I just got an update and nothing changed. Still locked onto that screen. I paid for the whole bundle when this game came out and I feel like I'm being treated like a free-to-play gamer. Instead I see you plugging this game on new platforms and you can't even pay attention to the people who first bought the game. Best solution... fix it... tomorrow. Less meetings, more coding.

The problem is that the game allows you to continue, even if you have not made the character role picking. So in this case the game allows gamers to play wrongly and that causes the problem. The solution would be to have a check before scenario, if the all characters have the role card or not. That does not fix the problem with the old characters who allready have been played to the corner, but it would prevent this happening again. Only sensible retrofix would be remove all progress from characters that have get upgrades to the point before They supose to get the role card. And that would be really hard to code... I think that character editor would be the only solution and that would mean manual fixing and that would mean less coding and more meetings (manual tinkering after contacting the customer).

Or Hannibal, the character could be given the role card reward as long as the party succeeded in mission regardless of death. I appreciate anyone who enjoys the current model of business to sell undeveloped software and make it the customers problem.
