Quests completing instantly.

Post by Scorchbreeze » Sat Aug 03, 2019 1:38 am

My quests seem to be finishing instantly, I got a promotion from the guild in question I was spamming quests from. Is this a save game issue? Is there a way for me to use savefix on my unity games?

Here is a video of the issue. https://vimeo.com/351731239

Welcome to the forums :) Could you upload your player log to pastebin or some other place to see what's happening?

A copy of a save and output log would be very helpful. This one is a unique issue I've not encountered before. More info on finding saves and output log below.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/2yl6mvvplvwi7 ... g.txt?dl=0 output

And yes, i'm running this, and all of the mods recommended in the thread, but only the ones in this thread.

I reproduce this with the save, 0.10.3 and no mods. How curious.

Repeating error in the player log:

Code: Select all

[N0B20Y02] Error in quest follows. Terminating quest runtime.
 
(Filename: ./Runtime/Export/Debug.bindings.h Line: 43)

CullResourceSiteLink() could not find active quest for UID 33561594
My characters don't have this issue.

Thanks Jay, have made an issue for me to look at when I can.

This looks very similar to a bug triggered in TalkManager that I fixed in 0.10.3. Could be some persistent SiteLink data in save from prior to fix. But won't know for sure until I dive into it.

Attaching zip of save direct to this post in case something happens to Dropbox link above. Scorchbreeze, thank you for providing save and log. :)

No problem! Too bad I saved over all my old saves, might have to restart now. I guess I can try another character archetype in the meantime. Thanks for looking at the issue!

If you don't want to abandon the save and start again, I have a workaround for you. In your save, open the QuestData.txt file. Right near the top, you will see the following:

Code: Select all

"siteLinks": [
        {
            "questUID": 33561594,
            "placeSymbol": {
                "original": "_childhouse_",
                "name": "childhouse"
            },
            "siteType": "Building",
            "mapId": 115496495,
            "buildingKey": 520,
            "magicNumberIndex": 0
        }
    ],
Edit this so that it looks like below and save the file again. Make a backup first if you're worried about breaking it.

Code: Select all

"siteLinks": [],
This solved the problem for me with your save above.

Basically what's happened is an old SiteLink has become stuck in your save and the game isn't able to digest it. I'll fix this behaviour in next builds so it's not necessary to edit save and game will recover if this happens.

Thanks for all the great information! :)

Here's a fixed version of your QuestData.txt file in case that makes it easier.
