Stuck in single player

#1gilgamesh99Posted 12/29/2012 9:23:46 PM
I got to Myrkwood. I beat up on the boss and then headed to the Orc camp where you get ambushed. I cleared the ambush. I am entering the spider cave. The dwarf says there's a hidden door, but I don't see one. I don't see any chests. There's a part where you drop off a ledge. When I drop down I can't get out. I can't move forward. So I end up stuck.

Looking at videos online before you drop down the ledge there is supposed to be one of those white checkpoints that calls your team and loads the next area and you are supposed to fight a troll in the lower half. After re-loading my game many times, I do not get this and cannot advance the game. I can't leave the area either.

Any ideas or am I just screwed?

I'm not exactly sure where you're stuck. I covered the level in my LP:

But given that you've watched the level already, I'm not sure if this helps any way.

Actually it's before that. If you look here:

It would begin at the 9:08 mark until

At 9:22, Farin finds a hidden passage that on my game is already blown open and contains no treasure but a dead end room - as if the game never registered the objects.

But the killer is at 9:58 you will see there's a white gather troops type point.

In my game that isn't there, you can drop down into the room that should hold the Troll but you cannot leave once you do.

I cannot advance the story because the checkpoint is missing. I guess I'm going to have to either start a whole new game or hope that I can get past this point on multiplayer.

this game has a lot of glitches. you have to load your game and then reload it a second time to get all your quests loaded. if you don't you may get stuck.

try doing it online.

Huh, interesting. Have you played online previously in this level?

I have not played online. Single player only so far.

Seems like what I've read is that my best bet will be to join a coop game and hope to get past this point.

Kind of a shame. My first time picking the game up and I was enjoying it a good bit. Oh well. Hopefully I can get past that online...

Update: Online got me past this point, but not by much. I was able to get to the end of Myrkwood and save Radagast but now the next place to travel to isnt spawning. It must not have spawned for our host b/c he dropped on the map screen and it wont spawn for me either.

Not sure this game is worth tge effort any more... :(

Update: I joined a match and we got past this point. Big thanks to keybladerule and viciousjulios for a great run. According to other posts this happens by not talking to Erebor immediately after killing the boss that rides the dragon and shoots fire. If you dont talk to him at that point, you won't have the option to talk to him after saving Radagast and thus cannot advance the game. I'll try testing that theory out on my next char.
