I am going to suggest something i am not sure has been tried thus far. first things first, check, then uncheck every single one of the flags you checked while your save file is loaded into both the game and cheat engine. then save the file. from there close out monster hunter world and then reload the game. DO NOT ATTACH CHEAT ENGINE TO THE GAME AT THIS TIME, instead go on an expedition as i have heard the handler will be at camp. from there, go on whatever assigned quest is next on your list, not optional, investigation or event, an assigned story mode quest. COMPLETE THE QUEST WITHOUT LOADING CHEAT ENGINE OR ANY TRAINER. more than likely the flags that were saved into your save file do not match the quests completed and as such the game engine does not know what to do with the mixed data set it is receiving from the save file and since all story line quests require talking to npc's and in a specific sequence; more than likely it has either multiple variations on the npcs or more than likely different scripts for the npcs both dialog and actions, and as such the game engine simply cannot load the npcs as it cannot parse the scripts attached to them. finishing a storymode quest launching it from an expedition may correct that data as it would need to overwrite the corrupted flags as the progression flags would have to be set in the save file for the game to know where your character is at in the story line. it is a long shot, but it is just crazy enough to work.senseirain wrote: ↑Fri Sep 07, 2018 8:35 amUse " Unlock Amor/Weapons for Current Tier Level "
for more Armor and Weapons Go to "Zeni/Research Points/Flags" > Flags > Progression Flag (Zorah) (Unlocks Teir 2 Weapons) / Progression Flag (HR Armor) (Unlocks Teir 3 Weapons) / (Unlocks Xeno Armor/Weapons)(Makes NPCs Disappear)
<---EDIT i realize that if you have not talked to an npc to get the next story line quest, that the first solution will not work as you would need 1 assigned quest uncompleted to reset the flags. there may be another way though. when you set the flags past zorah quest to craft high rank armor, the first thing the game is going to ask you to do is go on an expedition, i forget where so you may have to search each available area starting with the ancient forest and what you will eventually find is some ??? monster tracks, this is story mode after the 2nd zorah quest and may also reset the flags, although if it does you will be way ahead in the story line. one way to check this is when you walk out the gate and the map comes up, in the upper left hand corner you will be able to toggle lowrank and highrank maps as they are different. if so, finding those tracks may override the glitch and fix your save file although you will miss whatever quests you have not completed before using those flags in cheat engine. tinkering with progression flags is usually some ugly ugly business and generally is not worth it no matter what you may gain out of it.
@Squall8 if either or both of these possible solutions is able to fix this problem for those in the thread afflicted with the glitch, please post it somewhere easily visible for anyone who downloads the table as i'm sure many people download the table without signing up and commenting. Greatly appreciated!
