    Oh well I'm glad it's going well now :)
     
  2. I HAVE THE MISSION "CHECK OUT THE FAIRGROUNDS, BUT SGT TAN NEVER BLEW OPEN THE BRIDGE.


    - What was the last story mission you completed before things stopped?

    I failed helping the soldiers defend the bridge where SGT Erik Tan was suppose to blow open the bridge.
    I got to the North East Bridge,
    -CUT SCENE BEGINS- Sgt Tan yelled that he was going to blow the bridge
    Zombies Start to Attack
    I got in a car and it said "I Failed the Mission".
    THEN I got the mission to go back to the soldiers.
    -I get them and I get the mission -"CHECK OUT THE FAIRGROUNDS" -
    *but the bridges are still secured.*

    --------I cant get past the bridge because they are not open
    --------and I can not find a way to go across the water.
    --------There is no where to climb up on the other side.
    ________________________________________________________________________
    - What is the last any kind of mission you completed before things stopped?
    I got resources before I failed the mission with sgt tan.

    ________________________________________________________________________
    - Did you refuse any missions and if so, which ones?
    No I didn't refuse any, I only failed to defeat the zombies when sgt tan was preparing to blow up the bridge.
    I failed before he could set the charges, so it tells me to go back to the soldiers,

    PLEASE HELP as I am using resources and can not get another mission so I can not save even if I go farm any resources.

    Thanks

    Mike you're posting so much that our Spam checker thinks that you're spamming us. :) We're a small team and can't immediately respond to every query. ;)

    Mike, can you tell me more about not being able to Save? The game auto saves. If you turn off your game (I believe you're on PC yes?) The game should start at the beginning of this mission. Please give me a few more details so I can pass them along.

  4. sorry i didnt mean to make it look like spam, i just wanted to give you the info you were asking for.

    The game autosaved after i failed the mission where sgt tan blows up the bridge.
    after i failed the mission, i turned off the game and i restart at base camp (in marshall) and it tells me to go to the bridge and get the soldiers.

    and once i get to the soldiers, i get the mission "check out the fairground"

    but the bridge has not been blown up so i do not have access to that area of the map.

    I have restarted the game like 15 times, and have even paused the game, turned off my PC and started it again,
    with the same results.

    I do not restart with SGT Tan trying to blow up the bridge mission, i get the mission immediately afterwards like he did blow up the bridge.

    is there a way to go back before it autosaved that i failed...

    im telling you, i spent 3 hours tryiny everything,
    i went to both bridges, (both closed)
    i ran to the water, couldnt get up the other side...

    i am completely stuck... is there a way to abondon the mission?
    cause i cant even save anymore until i complete the mission

    Mike you are on PC right? Could you email me your save game? I think we're going to try giving it a looksee here in -house to see if we can figure out what's happening for you. (Make sure to include your Steam Username in your email)
     
  6. how do i email my save game?

    ive never done that before...

    sorry if i seem like a noob

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\State of Decay YOSE\Game\levels\Class3 That should be the Path in your Windows explorer.

    You'll have a .sav file in there. Email it to me WITH your Steam ID and Username

    Edit: If you are not playing YOSE but the original game - Directions are here -https://forums.undeadlabs.com/threads/do-not-post-before-using-this-bug-template.33966/#post-374541
     
  8. What was the last story mission you completed before things stopped?
    I helped the trade deal where the brothers killed the people after I left, and then I also went and took the soldiers in the field up to the house to help them clear it out. (also did what I believe is the 3rd Cleo drop if that counts) I'm not sure which was the last thing.

    - What is the last any kind of mission you completed before things stopped?
    Not sure, as I didn't realize it was going to stop. I still get zombie hunt missions.

    - Did you refuse any missions and if so, which ones?
    No, I never refuse them.

    - How many real time hours have passed since you last got a story mission?
    Approximately 24 hours? I've only played twice now in the past month, figuring each time I might come back and have a new story mission but nope. Nothing but a feral hunt. The judge keeps broadcasting warnings and whatnot, but no missions.

    - How many real time hours have passed since you last got any mission?
    Just had a feral, and now I built a kitchen and it said I need to go find some spoons to make a feast.

    - Where are you in the game, more or less?
    I think that summed it up. I have the best base(what we call Home Depot), 8 outposts, and am just trying to get the game to finish. (I finished it 3 times on the 360 so I can't figure out what's up with this)
     
  9. What was the last story mission you completed before things stopped?
    "Armoury" the one where you raid the warehouse in Farfield with Sgt Tan to collect explosives to blow up the blockade.

    - What is the last any kind of mission you completed before things stopped?
    Not sure, when I exited the game to have a rest, the mission was there, then when I went back one a couple of hours later, I noticed it was missing when I realized the Sgt stopped saying over the radio to meet him at the Blockade. I still get zombie hunt missions, infestation and help escort allies home.

    - Did you refuse any missions and if so, which ones?
    Went to the Blockade to start "The Wall" mission, talked to Sgt Tan but declined to start the mission as I wanted to collect more supplies from the military stashes.

    - How many real time hours have passed since you last got a story mission?
    Hard to say, possibly 24+ game hours, although the story mission isn't available I still enjoy collecting supplies and doing side missions for now.

    - How many real time hours have passed since you last got any mission?
    Again hard to say, maybe 20 hours.

    - Where are you in the game, more or less?
    Up to the last mission, have a home base at the Warehouse in Marshall. I believe the story mission disappeared before I moved from the Church.

    - What system am I using?
    Xbox 360 console: State of Decay

  10. So I'm guessing this is a problem that can't just be patched. I put a lot of effort into the game and seeing that this problem is old and solved on an individual basis I gave up. This would have honestly been my favorite game. There was something incredibly immersive, I immediately recognized it as the game I played on my Ipad and I was so excited. I hope you guys come out with a new expanded version of this game but with attention to story progression and game ruining bugs. So much potential, I'm sad I'll never know the story.
     
  11. Q: What was the last story mission you completed before things stopped?
    A: My last story mission was the one right after you meet the judge and you help the cops there clear out infestestations and save people.

    A: Morale Issue Anger

  12. This is absolutely ridiculous.
    The amount of time and money I have put into this game (Bought game all dlcs on Xbox 360 + steam). I wanted to put some time into my game before I went to University and I have finally realised my game is borked. Can't progress the main story line. This is the second time in as many months I have had to start again. Well screw it. This game has been out for how long? It seems the game never was ready to ship! I would be ashamed if I were on your team, charging people for this. What a disgrace.

    What version on Steam? YOSE or normal? They've stopped updating the original, as far as I can tell.

  14. The Wilkersons (and a lot of other factions for that matter) wont respond when you attempt to interact with them if they have nothing to say / do. So that sounds alright to me. Hopefully Doc will appear after you complete a few more missions (side or main).

    After meeting the judge and saving people (Civic Duty right? http://stateofdecay.wikia.com/wiki/Mission:_Civic_Duty) you may have another mission at the Courthouse or the Grange (http://stateofdecay.wikia.com/wiki/The_Grange). Even if the Grange is not currently displayed on your map, they may have a mission for you.

    Could you please complete three more quests (of any type) and report back?
     
  15. hi undead labs. having problems with the main story line and i hope some one can help me.

    - What was the last story mission you completed before things stopped?

    the mission where judge lawton and carl die in the courthouse as it is being over ran by the undead.

    - What is the last any kind of mission you completed before things stopped?

    i keep getting side missions like hunt the freak, ally in trouble or clear infestations.

    - Did you refuse any missions and if so, which ones?

    i refuse the mission where you escort 3 suriviors who are trading the wilkinsons

    - How many real time hours have passed since you last got a story mission?

    about 3 and a half days....

    - How many real time hours have passed since you last got any mission?
    about 10 mintues..

    - Where are you in the game, more or less?
    i am in the church of assintion, with 12 survivors and the whole town of splenters mill looted clean .

    ps. i have 7 other survivor groups scattered around the valley that are out side of the story line with full trust and it wont let them join me.

    The courthouse missions aren't main story missions. They are "side missions" (just for each faction, courthouse, grange, wilkinson).
    You are supposed to move from the church to another location at some stage after you rescue Jacob, do you have the mission to take Jacob out to scout for other home sites?
    If you haven't done this check on Jacob and see if he has a mission for you.

    The enclaves, I dont know if is a bug or just how the game works, but I was never able to recruit any enclaves past the first that's scripted to join in story mode regardless of trust levels.

    DPS lfg PST Starting Off

    Wanted to throw this here as well....

    Breakdown is also not providing quests either. Went 2 days without a quest at all, on Level13. Restarted on the next level, had some issues, started a new game on 11. I recieved quests for a few hours, but not getting anything new. I do have a training and CLEO mission, but nothing else has populated.

    Also, there are few zombies while out and about, and i've seen no ferals or juggernauts in the last two hours or more. At most, one or two hordes on the road between the trucking warehouse and the Mt. Tanner bridge, but otherwise its practically empty.

    This is for YOSE on X1. no fatalities, Lily is alive, etc.

    I will look at it in the morning and do the quests just in case, but not sure it will fix the issue.

    Is your RV repaired? It's likely time for you to move on to the next level. :)

    Make sure that you do all of the missions and explore the map. You'll run into other mission givers. :)
     
  20. - What was the last story mission you completed before things stopped?

    Erik Tan and a few soldiers radio dispatch that "these people are going to die if we don't help them". I went to location and helped them save the civilians at the nearby house.
    Erik Tan did later show up at my base with a thank you gift. No contact from military since. Lily even posted a note under "Rumors" that "The army has been eerily quietly lately and it hasn't gone unnoticed. That can't be good."

    - What is the last any kind of mission you completed before things stopped?

    The above mission was the last main mission completed before things stopped. All side quest lines had already been completed.

    - Did you refuse any missions and if so, which ones?

    I do not refuse any missions. Earlier in the game, I believe one random Zed Hunt or Ally in Need mission may have expired due to all the missions coming so rapidly.

    - How many real time hours have passed since you last got a story mission?

    8-10 hours.

    - How many real time hours have passed since you last got any mission?

    0. I get the random Zed Hunt, Ally in Need, Missing Survivor, Infestation Takedown, Survey Request, etc... all the time. They are the only missions I do get. And yes, there are times where I have zero missions to do.

    - Where are you in the game, more or less?

    Moved base to the Trucking Company, everything maxed out. 8 outposts surround base. Courthouse, The Grange, and The Wilkersons storylines are all complete. Last main story mission was listed above. Should also note, The Wilkersons missions halted at one point. The nervous survivor who needed 5 crates of ammo to repay his debt mission took 5 hours to show up after the previous one. But it did show up after an overnight wait. This is the Xbox One version.
