1. Load save SpidersDead.
2. Exit the cave without crossing the trigger (around x230 y720).
3. Exit the Forest of Wyrms and choose to travel to the Troll Claw Woods.
4. Return to the Forest of Wyrms (you might end up in a unique encounter rather than the Troll Claw Woods, I don't think it matters).
5. Enter the cave.
6. Walk over the trigger.

Nothing happens.

An event should trigger wherein a Rhino Beetle and several smaller beetles spawn in the cave.

Internal report #32540

SpidersDead is a save I created while attempting to reproduce the bug. Tom25 and Tom26 are saves from my main playthrough. Tom25 is before entering the cave, Tom26 is after exiting the cave (without the beetles spawning) and leaving the Forest of Wyrms. If you load Tom26 and return to the cave, crossing the trigger does not lead to the beetles spawning.
I think I originally missed the trigger as only my main character crossed it and he was wearing boots of speed. I have checked, and it is possible for him to cross the trigger without spawning the beetles, although this does not seem to happen consistently. I then continued exploring and left the Forest of Wyrms. This appears to have killed the trigger permanently.

You've probably moved on but I've attached a save which should work if you wanted to use it.

#3 Updated by Thomas Carr over 2 years ago

Thank you. Sorry for the late reply. My main save was about five hours further on. I've attached the file. It's a little presumptuous, but would it be possible to edit that file?

#4 Updated by Richard Hilton over 2 years ago

Try this save

#5 Updated by Thomas Carr over 2 years ago

That worked. Thanks a lot!

Is someone so nice as to fix my save-game as well? I'm going through bd0114.BCS but can't figure out how to fix it yet?

#8 Updated by Richard Hilton almost 2 years ago

Try this
(I copied actor 4 from the base area bd0114 into the save bd0114, loaded the game and killed it)

#9 Updated by Tobias Braun almost 2 years ago

Your manual save-game fix worked for me - thank you very much!
