X3 Reunion Mission 7 - no cutscene, can't complete - Resolved.

Post by MasterofZero » Mon, 28. Oct 19, 01:43

The mission is to save Saya and Marina in their lifepods at the Pleasure Complex. I get to the 2nd set of lifepod bays to blow the hatches, that is supposed to trigger a cutscene, showing the good guys getting away.

But the cutscene never comes. I did blow all six hatches, that's confirmed. I've tried this TWICE now, with the same results.
I can't complete the mission without this cutscene, as the game is autosaved and you then go on to the next mission.

What happened to the cutscene, is this a bug? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Have you verified your game installation recently? Is your game modded? Do other cutscenes run OK as far as you know?

Thanks for the reply.

My game is NOT modded, and I have not had any problems with other cutscenes, this is the first one.

My X3 games are not on Steam, they are on GOG Galaxy, which does not have a verification feature.
Though some suggest a convoluted work-around that takes you out of Galaxy - which seems beyond my technical competency.

GOG has verification:

In GOG select 'The Game's Name'.
Click on More -> Manage Installation -> Verify & Repair...
Click on Verify Game
Once the verification is finished, restart your computer and try to start the game again.

Okay, many thanks for that, I will keep it in my X3 notes for future reference.

I did try again for a 3rd time, and this time the cutscene came up.
I was able to complete the mission, and go on to the next one.

What I did differently was to take my time in blasting each of the hatches in the six lifepod bays, rather than rushing thru them like I did the first two times.
That seemed to make the difference.

Thanks again for the information.
