Having Problem With The "Meet Doc" Task_[Spoiler]

I've gone back to a number of different saves and replayed getting the wire for Sakharov, but when the Professor gives me the "Meet Doc" task, I make it to Doc's house, after dodging the helicopter, but when I enter his house I'm shown a cut-scene, and when that's over the game crashes.

That crash is being saved as an _autosave in my directory, so when I'm restarting the game that load option is available, but when chosen the game crashes.

I'm not sure what I've done wrong , but something else happened earlier in the game when Sakharov sent me to Dead City to get his package. After I was knocked out and ended up in a cell with Doc, I got a message that the 'Find/...Strelok' mission failed. That didn't happen to me on my first play-through before the new patch, so I'm wondering if that was a first sign?

I assume that the "Meet Doc" task is important to the main mission, and I might have missed something prior to Dead City...all thoughts welcomed.

1. You should have reported this in the dedicated "Lost Alpha Bugs" forum:
https://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&sec_id=20

2. Well known issue, tons of people already reported it if you look for it in that forum, follow these steps:
https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_page=1&thm_id=23169&page=3&sec_id=20#394452

Once you have extracted that .avi file to the proper location within the Lost Alpha install directory _and_ have made sure that when you double click on the file, Windows Media Player opens and plays it fine (no other player!), it should be working and not crash for you.

The cutscene at Doctor's place actually loads a 'new map'. It is really just a video clip, and you get another loading when it is done to put you back in Doctor's house.

You get the failure message for the 'Kill Strelok' mission in the cell with Doctor because it is at that point that he tells you who you really are. That should mean that you no longer want to kill Strelok - unless you're suicidal, in which case fixing a bug at Doctor's house is the least of your worries.

That cutscene is in heavy need of subtitles. I don't understand anything that those people are saying.

In my first play-through of LA I never got a failure message even though the Doc told me who I was. So getting a fail task message is normal for the new LA (patch 2)?

Haven't tried the recent patch yet. I got that message in 1.3001 all three times I went through the game.

It isn't on screen for long. You might have just missed it.

I didn't get this failure with 1.30013 but did on 1.3002, and given the number of reports, it seems associated with 1.3002.

Not that this should stop anyone using 1.3002 - it's fab!

The problem is pretty easy to fix too - although I would never have worked out the solution in a million years - so very well done whoever did!

You also get the failed "Kill Strelok" task after you meet the Doc when you return to the Strelok's group hideout in the original game (ie when you find out who you are). Makes perfect sense to me.

I don't see what's to fix here, this seems to be working as intended.

I think henry is referring to fixing the meeting Doc mission at his home in the swamps. If the scene in the jail cell with Doc is meant to fail, then all is cool, but with the earlier version of LA it didn't fail, so that might be causing some confusion.
