Alright so I have a party of Cassidy, Vic, and Sulik. I only have 5 charisma but got Cassidy after using a mentat. Now whenever I enter battle Sulik and Vic always run away at the start, even though I tell Sulik to never run away and whatever is the lowest option for Vic. Cassidy is the only one that actually fights. I tried it when I only have 2 guys but Vic/Sulik would still always run away. What the hell?
I installed the FO2 restoration patch thingy, not sure if that's the problem or a theres some kind of incompatible npc combination or something.
Usually, one of two things make your companions run. One, their health is very low. Probably not your current problem, or you would likely realize it. Two, they have been crippled. This is much more likely. Use the right click menu to examine them. If this is your problem, it will say something about them having crippled limbs. Doctor skill can cure this problem.
A good friend will help you move. A really good friend will help you move a body.
thanks that fixed the problem, but now I have a wierd error, I'm in broken hills and talking to chad and threatened him if he didnt pay me I'd report him or whatever, but I'm stuck at limbo, between the dialog box and the map screen. Reloading my game before I talked to him lets me use anything in my GUI but I can't do anything on the map (i can access pipboy, menu, enter combat, etc.) and I'm still stuck in the "limbo" state.
