I can't activate Trouble on the homefront?! there's a weird glitch!

#1mtjormitchPosted 8/12/2009 2:01:14 PM
I did waters of life and everything, I just went to megaton, no radio signal so I went inside the cave of vault 101, I get it, but when I click it, it says that the radio transmission is gone, but it's still there. does anyone know how to fix this.

I also have all DLC, so is like... MZ doing this? or what?

You went to Megaton right after? If you did I don't know what's up, but if you didn't you may have missed it. If you take too long the quest disappears.

Trouble on the Homefront is a time limited quest so if you didn't start it within a few in-game hours of receiving the Signal then your screwed.

Only post a question once you've read the walkthroughs and looked in the relevant forums as that's where you'll find the answers.

that doesn't make sense!? on another save I played for 20 hours after Waters of life and didn't get the mission mainly because I was exploring, even did broken steel, then I went to megaton and I was still able to get the mission!?

I checked another play through save, and the same problem with the radio, exept that I had already listened to it and got the mission. WTH?

If you have the Pitt DLC, then go to the pitt then come back. that fixed the glitch for me.

Bro, its not something to fret over unless you wanted to use Vault 101 as a house...

Try to reload Pre-Waters of Life, it sucks I know but this is recently known to work.. Unfortunately it may leave you prone to the WOL glitch of where your *SPOILERS*
