OK, an obscure title I know, but here is my issue, which may have been addressed in the past before (as it rings a bell with me), but …
Basically, if a player (or host of a session) loads a game “directly” while playing the module, I have sometimes seen some really weird results occur in the play as it continued to be played. NOTE: I am not saying a fresh load (from the main menu), but the type of load if a player hits escape and then loads from that “immediate” menu offered rather than dropping back to the Main Menu first.
At this stage I am looking at removing the option to load a game from this direct method from the XML that offers it. However, I just wanted to ask if anybody else has (or did from the past) experience strange happenings when loading a game this way.
In my own experience, I have seen companions “lose” their companion status, but appear to be in the party still. However, they then start to wonder about on their own, even though the player is controlling them! (It’s like they have come alive! )
Then there are all the other issues that come from carrying out any action using that “uncontrolled controlled” PC.
This NEVER happens if loaded from the first Main Menu “Load” XML. And to be fair, it does not always happen if loaded directly, which is my concern.
Anyone else, or just me?
