The fact is.. you have to follow the storyline as it is. You may break it if you go somewhere the game doesn't expect you..
You may also have something wrong with a save : usually, saving right in the middle of a mission is ok. But sometimes, the game forget what happened before (like the two bandits already dead in a 'shoot the five bad guys' mission). You then have to load a 'manual save', the one you did (isn't it?.. :) ) before taking the mission... (Edit : It's a good idea to do a manual save just after entering a level...)
Now, you can also tweak the info_portions in the game to get what you missed. You may ask on gsc-forum on that.. or wait til I'm home and my internet is back up and running.. :)
Hello,for the bug of the sniper just use the boxes that are near him(in front) if you are using no mods,push one of the boxes in front of the boss,and then push the box with him beside,he will get into the house,so the sniper can´t kill him. If max is walking,someone must be there,or a bloodsucker,try look for any danger that makes max be at guard(probably this bug appears with others npc)
This kind of troubles(completed mission without end them)appears but just when the mission is kill... or purge...someone kill your target.
Have you try finish the mission even if it appears to be done?
Sorry for my bad english
I have the same problem with the sniper mission. Ill have to try the box trick. But my problem is i didnt do the sniper mission and went and did the kill duty camp mission. My problem starts after all the duty members are killed. It still says destroy duty camp even tho everyone of them is dead. Then Max is running in that brick wall with the explosives that duty blows up for the sniper mission. Hes like running in place. I can talk to him but all he says is after we kill these ...... and i cant get any futher.
HellOut!!!i don´t remember so well,is Max from duty?if he is,you must kill him(kill duty camp),sometimes the game crash because there is a story line that must be done,so if you asked for the mission of the snipper but didn´t finish,the game will do duty figthers attack the military warehouse even if you pick the explosives they are gonna try get inside the base,and if you asked,after not finish the mission kill the...,for the mission of kill the camp...you are trying to be right with 2 different factions,maybe there is the problem,try an old same game and just take missions from one faction...
Ok Max is Freedom. Heres what i did when i entered army warehouses. I went to Duty talked to skull. I accepted the mission then skull dies like 2 sec later from the sniper. I kill the sniper cant complete the mission cause skull is dead. So i go to freedom camp tell them about the duty camp get that mission. Then i follow the freedom squad to kill duty. Killed all of the duty members and my mission still says kill duty camp, and max is still running into that wall.
Hello,try an old save game,thre must be a bug,i´ve had so many and you must load a save game without doing certain missions to skip them. In STALKER a lot of things take part in the game(reputacion,faction war,skill...) so sometimes doing wrong things makes the game crash. When i had to talk with max,he was hide,so i couldn´t talk to him... Anyway,you can finish the game just doing the principal missions. Luck Saludos from Madrid
