Novikov is the tech guy from the Clear Sky faction. He gives a weapon enhancement quest, where you need to obtain 3 flash drives. It's a routine quest given by all the tech guys in the game.
It took me quite a while to get back to him to complete the mission. Now when I finally did, Novikov seems to have "forgotten" about the mission entirely. He doesn't have a dialog option to accept the completed mission. Instead, he gives me the same mission like it's the first time.
I can take the mission from him anew and complete it, but the "forgotten" mission still stays in the list of incomplete tasks and there's no way of completing it.
Is there any way to fix this? Maybe hack it somehow? Force Novikov to "remember" the mission? Remove the mission from the list? Anything?
---QUOTATION--- That happens in Stalker games from time to time, a job gets stuck on the 'to do' list even though it is completed. It doesn't harm your game so just ignore it.. ---END QUOTATION---
That may be so, but in this case it turned out to be entirely my mistake: I thought it was the Clear Sky tech guy who gave me the mission, but I was wrong, it was a different tech guy, from Cordon. I don't know why I was so sure it was Novikov. I should have double-checked everything before posting here. My bad!
