    Hey guys I've just installed MIB88's MegaMod, been playing for a couple hours so far but as of right now I've entered a Mountain/Cave on a grid and in this Mountain there doesn't seem to be any exits. Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers !

    Side note, I seem to be crashing quite often now with this error below.



    Edit: Does anyone know if it's possible to change the amount of money some merchants have ? If so what's involved in it, I'd love to give it a shot.

    Does it happen at the coast? There seems to be a river or something like that, what prevents you moving. You can only go back for example.

    Maybe make a screenshot of the place where you are stuck.

    Hey teskal,
    It's pretty much roughly about 1 square around the toxic caves, it's on a blank square which I stopped on to save then saw a mountain which had access to a cave went in and killed everything in there which only had scorpions but there is no exit grid. Screen shot is uploaded that is pretty much the whole area theres nothing beyond it and nothing that allows me to exit, I've tried all areas on the screen.

    I've been searching the forums/search engines and haven't been able to find anything related to this issue. Worst case scenario is I just restart and avoid these Mountain/Caves all together.

    I had the same issue with the gog.com version I bought. It also did not happen always, sometimes I could reach the exit grit, but still not all areas of the cave.
    I needed to use the CD/DVD version from a friend to solve it. Few days ago I bought the Steam-version (And I'm thinking going back to CD/DVD).


    Do you have save game in Klamath? If you click within the wired fence protected area your character will find a way into it, even if there should be no way in. It looks like he leaves the screen and walks in it. So I got the car parts to early.

    I believe it has to do with using an improper resolution were the exit grids are outside your screen.
    Experienced this myself in the past. Change the resolution of the game, load the game and see if it worked out for you.

    You can go back to the previous resolution when you´re out the caves.

    I'm on the steam version as well, and I noticed the same thing as well collecting bottles for a task, the area you speak of I to was able to go around but luckily only collected the bottle that happened to be there.

    Hey Oracle,

    I'm currently sitting at 1920x1080 scaled at 2x, I will give it a try and see what happens with other resolutions.

    Edit: I've fiddled with the different resolutions and it hasn't changed anything, I've had it at 1920x1080 and smaller res's with unchecked scaled option which allows me to see everything past the game environment and it's just a blank border which is normal. Screen shot added.

    Edit: I actually believe that this certain area may legitimately be lacking exit grids ?

    This looks very much like the high-res patch edge file is either not existing or wrong.

    I will do a quick uninstall/fresh install see if that helps. The area does feel pretty cramped and unnatural to how it may suppose to be. You might be onto something.

    It doesn't seem a fresh install did anything, it's still the same, It's most likely this area is just missing exit grid.

    This is not a usual map layout, so I'm pretty sure it's missing the edge file, or it's simply set wrong. Would take a look at it, but I don't have the mod installed, so only @MIB88 can really help.

    All good. Thanks for the input either way. I'll see what comes out of it, I've already started a new play through and will just avoid those caves till figured out.

    After having same and other issues with the versions from gog and steam, I use a DVD version, now. Everything works fine, now.

    I tried to install the newest highres patch, but had the same issue with the caves. I really hope the highres patch will be usable in the future. :-)
