So I tried a workaround...|
Since, while 'working' in Outskirts to find the calibration tools, there seemed no reason not to dis the Earthquake device and snag the PC info for later.
The mission will not fully complete of course because you are supposed to do this after the scorcher is dissed, but this is a minor matter since Guide spawns in his lair, and a quick chat gets the heads-up to 'meet with Fang'.
Now initially, I didn't bother with Fang as I wanted to do the X16 routine - which turned out to be "broken", so I backtracked to where I HADN'T entered Countryside principally because I couldn't re-enter Countryside from Lost Factory - as it crashed the game... - and met up with Fang.
No problem there, nor in Radar, but I'm not thrilled at the prospect of the occupants of the PU station. I'll get shredded. So I work something that worked in v1.3002, v1.3003, v1.4002,... and jump the fence on Snork Hill and run round the back of the level changer to the NPP. Again - no problems, and a smallish firefight with the Sarcophagus door guards.
I do all business and head for the Generators. Do the X2 sequence and arrive in "Unknown Area" to 'meet with Ghost'. I also get the alternate ending heads-up (since I have the 'enlightered docs' (not my typo)) so I get over to where it's supposed to happen - and make a save.
I just slept 3h in X2 before grenading the 'thing' so my actor will not sleep..
I'm fully fed and watered...
And the Oso door leads straight to my desktop. No logfile. No error message. Just the desktop, repeatedly.
Alternatively talking to Ghost starts the 'Good Ending' sequence - time goes into warp mode - and I die of sleep deprivation, then thirst, because the game clock is still visible ticking off a game day every 10 seconds.
No Freeplay obviously.
This game was tested????
Exploiting 1.4007 DC as best as I can. I will NEVER, EVER use a "cheat pack" - a game lives or dies on its gameboard. Best of luck, stalker...
