    A Captive Friend Quest

    Hi guys,

    I know it must be something simple that I am missing, but I can not get all to the ship. One guy just stands at the end of the wall, Barnabas I suppose. All of the cells that I could find have been unlocked, the group up north of town.

    Any ideas, sick of killing everyone over and over. Do I have to complete one of the Conquest Battles?


    Looking forward to your replies.

    All the best,

    Hi KBL007, I'm the creator of that story. I've just tested it a few times and it seems like it's working like it should. When do you run into the problem?

    Hi TG,

    Thanks for getting back to me;
    After releasing the captives then defending Barnabas, he follows me as far as the wall and goes no further. The released captives run around randomly.
    I know it must be something I have missed.
    Are the only captives that need releasing in north/east section of town with 1 large cage with 3 in and 2 single cages with 1 in each?

    You should only need to open the one big cage, and everyone should be freed, then you really only need to worry about escorting Barnabas to the ship. The other prisoners only have to be freed, then it doesn't really matter what happens to them.

    There have been a lot of updates to SCM since I last updated it, and it still uses the original Escort objective, so maybe that might be part of the problem. When I load it in SCM, it doesn't give any validation errors or warnings, but when I get a chance I'm gonna update it with some of the new changes and such.

    Ok, well he only goes as far as the start of the wall.
    What should I try? Is it possible to restart that mission from scratch as every time I go off and do other stuff, then log off and when log back in he is still at wall;
    Setting him on fire makes him move but then he goes back.

    You might want to start it over, if you cancel the story it gives you the option to start over or exit, just as if you completed it, just can't rate or tag if you abort it.

    Have you tried getting on a horse, and see if he will get on the horse with you? When I test it, he rides on the horse with me all the way to the destination, then gets off once we reach it.

    Hi TG,

    Tried riding a horse right up to him, still wouldn't get on, so bit the bullet and restarted. Was completed in no time in comparison.
    Was definitely a glitch in first game save as when released captives in successful version there were 6 in the cage as you said;

    Thanks for your help and patience resolving this.

    All the best,
    KBL

    Glad it worked for you! Not sure why it didn't, but I've noticed only a 22% completion rate for the story, so maybe a lot of other people had the same problem.
