Jaheira Bandit Quest Bug


Recommended Posts

I don't know if this is because of this mod, but I'm having a real problem with the Bandit Quest. As soon as it becomes necessary for me to sleep outside to trigger the appearance of Ertof Dand, sleeping outside suddenly starts crashing the game. Every time. I've tried doing it at the De'Arnise Keep, in Umar Hills and in the Druid Grove. I went back to a savegame I had earlier in the romance and tried sleeping outside in those places and there was no problem.


This means, of course, that I can't get Ertof to spawn. So I tried force-spawning him with CreateCreature and it goes through the whole dialog thing and he attacks, but his friends aren't with him and I don't know what their .cre names are, so I can't spawn them. Apparently the rest of the dialog depends on killing them too, so it didn't start until I force-talked Jaheira. The dialogue went along as normal and I figured I had the bug beat, but now every time I talk to Jaheira it starts with that same "Are you alright?" line and the quest doesn't seem to go any farther.


So just to test things out, I force-spawned Meronia and Jaheira left the party as normal, but she didn't disappear from the screen as she was supposed to. She just stood there. I went and rested, hoping she'd return to the part as she's supposed to, but she never came back.


So, at this point, I'm thinking the whole thing is just screwed. I really want to finish this quest, though, so if anyone has any advice on how to get things back on track, I'd appreciate it.

Apparently doing that second half of the dialog by force-talk wasn't setting the JaheiraBanditPlot variable like it was supposed to. I set it to 9 and it looks like that's solved everything. Haven't tried sleeping outside again, but Meronia spawned like she was supposed to and Jaheira came back after I rested.


Still sort of interested in what might have caused the problem in the first place, though, so I'll leave the post up just in case anyone happens to know.
