  •                 I just freed Barabus, and I went outside to the payphones on the building as instructed.  The thing is, Gary won't call!  Am I at the right spot?
     
     I am using the Unofficial Patch v4.7.

  •                 That's happened to me before, and may be random.
     
     Try saving/reloading.

     I just did, several times in fact.  I even tried restoring an older game and freeing Barabus again and it still didn't work.
     
     I am really trying to like this game, but these quirks (among others) are really wearing me down.
     
     Any ideas on how I can fix this issue would be appreciated.
     
     EDIT: Well, I have tried everything I can think of to get him to call and he refuses to do so.  I don't know if this is a bug with v4.7, but unless I can get him to call I won't be able to finish the game.  Again, I would appreciate any help.

     What is the value of G.Story_State and G.Gary_Know? Try setting them to 55 and 0 and then enter the chinatown hub again.

     Silly question - but did you also do the necessary things like purging vamp data from the computers?
     
     I remember using the 7337 code to go in the wrong way once, got a success-state for the quest, but gary didn't phone.

     G.Story_State was at 55 already but G.Gary_Know was at 1.  I set G.Gary_Know to 0 and reentered Chinatown.  THE CALL CAME IN!  Thanks a ton for the help.  I can now proceed! :grin:  Why did I have to change that back?  From what I remember I had to set G.Gary_Know to 1 to get the CD quest from Bertram.

     I did the quest the "correct" way, as I didn't get the code until the end.  Thanks for the suggestion.  Luckily, as you can see above, Wesp5 found the fix!

     That's the reason. The game uses both G.Gary_Know and G.Gary_KnowN and I mistyped one wink .

  • This sort of just happened to me on what might be my 20th playthrough or something. Just a necro-reminder in case someone has this issue again someday; it's important to talk to Barabus before leaving the building to trigger the game state to 55. If Barabus isn't close enough the forced conversation wont trigger. Took me a couple minutes to remember; just going back inside and finding him fixed it.

  • What should I do about it? I think people stupid enough to not talk with the guy they just saved deserve this ;).
