Did this bug get fixed? I've just gone in to tchort and failed their interview so hostile, don't want to get locked out of the game by a bug.
Also since I'm apparently locked into the end game now (I read somewhere I get pushed into the deep caverns from here and can't get back out) am I buggered if I didn't take a heap of ammo, medicine etc with me? I only thought I'd be infiltrating by doing a bunch of gopher jobs like I did with coretech and protectorate so I didn't load up before I went in
If you are hostile to the Tchortists or otherwise unable to get in, then I am afraid that you may be locked out of the Institute. If possible, I would reload a save from either right before or during the interview and either advance through it correctly (you basically just tell them what they want to hear and try to sound as innocent as possible) or just slaughter everyone in the Institute. It sounds like hell, but once you get past the 2nd screen it's actually a piece of cake. Killing Eidein is the hardest part, but he can be practically stunlocked if you have things like flashbangs, traps, telekinetic punch, electrokinesis, the electrokinetic trap, any melee skill that stuns, etc.
If you pass the interview, then all of their shops will be available to you and you will be able to stock up for the journey to the Deep Caverns. I definitely recommend that you take a lot of meds and ammo with you, but if you're allied to or neutral with the Faceless (as in, you spoilershelped them in Foundry, saved the Faceless in the Drop Zone, don't attack them when they plan to invade the Institute, and maybe you also let them kill Buzzer or persuaded the Mindreader in his shop to let him goend spoilers
) then you'll have access to more ammo than you could ever possibly use.
PS: The security measures for this forum are above and beyond. I have serious issues reading those verification letters and on top of having to google history is it really necessary? And I was searching for threads earlier so I didn't post up something that had already been covered and after two searches it locked me out because I'd searched less than five minutes ago ... seems extreme.
Have you noticed all the spambots on the forums, especially within the past couple of days? It's bad. Somehow they still get through, but I'm sure the security (while it is annoying) is probably keeping a lot of bots out.
