Joes Adventure's MAJOR quest breaking bug.
I just picked up a side mission near the damn. This mission description was for the first mission (take care of the guy who got Vito arrested). I click start mission and it sends me back in 1945. So basically my game is resetted. My savegame still says 45% completed, but when i load the save, it is the very first mission.
Either i have to start ALL over a again or i'll have to hope that once i finish the first mission it sends me back in 1950.
Cannot test it now, cause i have to go to work soon.
Either way, i'm extremely frustated.
EDIT: Using PC version. The quest marker is at the point, where you turn in the forest road just before damn (the one that leads to the cabin, related to first main mission).
Can someone else that has played the game confirm this at all?
Somehow i got the feeling that you guys don't believe me. Well, next time i'm prepared to take some screens or fraps video as proof (if the bug strikes again).
I know exactly what you're talking about.
It's not a side mission. That marker is to let you replay the first part of the game, if you want to.
That's why you read the mission description carefully before choosing "Start Mission" or whatever that choice is called. Choose "Back" if you're unsure whether or not you want to play a mission.
I thought it was a nice way of allowing you to replay the first part of the game any time you want to, but I see how it would be confusing for some players because it's not explained at all.
Try dying, and see if it sends you back to the 1950s, or if it keeps restarting the mission. If it behaves like all the other missions, you'll be back in the 1950s when you die and able to select the mission again, or go on your way. If it doesn't behave like all the other missions, then sadly, it will not be very well implemented IMHO.
Fat_Gizmo I would never say I do not believe someone - doing this job you get weird-sounding stuff all the time... but most of that weird stuff has a very sensible solution hidden underneath
NOTE: Don't be in a phone booth on the phone when the game saves for a check point. If you die you will be sent back to the phone booth and will be stuck there. No way out you will have to start a NEW game.
(Joe will be standing there holding nothing)
If you load up the save you will still be there.
I tried to kill myself, but i didn't go back 1950.
EDIT: Ok, i tried to finish the mission and i got back in 1950 where i left. Althrough i lost clothes from wardrobe, everything else seems to be in order.
