I've about had it with the Pitt already.
Quest stages aren't advancing correctly, NPC dialog refuses to end and begin on cue.
Had the first huge problem during Ashur's speech. Audio finished, and it just sat there. Square locked off by collision planes, half my controls locked. Just sits.
The "solution" to this problem is to reload the game and "try again". I did. Six fucking times. Never would go through. So I forced it via console setstage command. This updated the map marker, but neglected to remove the collision planes, and left my controls locked.
And the added bonus that one of the reloads caused a stack overflow, with its attendant BSoD and forced restart of the computer; windows bitching in my general direction about an unexpected shutdown, and so on.
Get forward a bit more past the Imperial Arena with radioactive waste... excuse me, I mean "the hole" (because they totally didn't use the same announcer or anything!). Get to Haven.
Ashur's conversation again won't end with his lackey. They just stand there.
Force the conversation to move on. We chat a bit, the intercom interrupts, Ashur says nothing more to me, and slides out of the room, clips through the wall, and is gone. No quest objective. No marker.
Leave the cell, re-enter, Ashur is at his desk again. Force conversation again, he says something about finding Werhner. Again, no marker, no active quest entry.
Check stage on the quest. It says 200. I save and exit, look in the GECK, and quest 02 doesn't have a stage 200...
About the only thing that is keeping me from uninstalling the game and pulling a vanishing act from the Nexus and the blog here is that my girls continue to perform above and beyond any other NPCs in the game.
Google and the forums both continue to be useless; turning in results that have absolutely nothing to do with what I searched for.
I've had similar problems already because of Broken Steel. It screwed the GNR quest up somethin' fierce. Dialog with those worthless brotherhood twits refused to advance on its own; ended up having to just go kill the super mutants my damned self to get them moving again.
Unfortunately, not an option in the Pitt.
I will also note, that whatever writer they hired for the Pitt should be fucking ashamed of themselves. This is the great adventure full of "moral ambiguity"? It's zombies on all fours and people with the plague. *yawn*
I've read creepypasta with more compelling storylines.
