    I am in the radioactive vault and ED-E just disappeared :shock:

    I still have his perk, so I know for sure he is not dead.

    I tried to type "moveto player ed-e" or something like that from the Fallout 3 console, but nothing. Can someone help?

    Hah, I have exactly the same problem. At one point in the game, ED-E was gone, but the game thinks he is still with me. Would be really nice to get a solution to this.

    Doesn't work to me and I can't read what's written in the console. Prid x part works, then I type in enable and then moveto player, but the last one doesn't work.

    /Edit: Now it worked. German keyboard, z == y...

    How do you find out the codes for the others? I told Cass and EDE-E to go wait at Lucky 38 and when went to try and re-recruit em, poof gone.

    Ouch, I just recruited Arcade and he disappeared on the way to Vault 3... anyone know his code?

    EDIT: OK, can't find it anywhere, and don't have a save from before this happened, so I'd really appreciate if someone could go in-game and look it up for me. Thanks.

    You open console (~) and then click on the NPC. The code should appear on top of the screen.

    Are you sure they are gone? First I thought too that it's a bug, because I searched in front of Lucky 38 for them... but they are actually in the presidental thingy. I didn't knew this and was searching for a very long time until I got told that they are actually in there and that it is my home. :p

    OK, that console command works like a charm.

    Also codes:

    Cass = 00135f19
    Gannon = 0010d8eb

    I searched inside at the time too. Maybe they'll appear there eventually. I'll check again.

    EDIT: They did eventually appear.

    Btw. just in case someone wonders: If you summon a follower via console, the companion wheel doesn't work. I've fixed this with telling ED-E to go back to Primm, then I've waited a little bit and talked to him again. Then the companion wheel was back.

    I think it's just you, it works just fine for me. I'm not sure what's different for the two of us, though. Maybe it's that I always include the two zeros in front of companion ID.

    This just keeps happening for me...

    Ever since I recruited Gannon, he disapeares every hour or so, and i have to console his nerdy ass back to me. I only tagged him along for his quest, but its still a pretty nasty bug.

    And now, I just exited Vault 34 and lost ED-E. I still have his perk, but he is not in 34, not in presidential suite, not in Primm, and console commands do nothing (I select him, but moveto player just doesnt seem to work). At least I could access his inventory and get my Anti-mat rifle and ton of ammo back.

    Anyway, I think ill reload. Vault 34 is a chore, and the rewards are not that stellar. Of all the Vaults its the only crappy one.

    OK, the brotherhood repair dude in the faction shack disappears when I enter. Could someone please post his code? Thanks.

    He is only there every x days. Just wait a while, he comes back.

    Nah, the issue is, I saw him when I first went in the shack, and he disappeared a second later and thus fas not returning, so I'm almost convinced it's a bug.

    'Lost' Arcade myself, does using these commands count as cheating?(achievement wise)

    I never had companions disappear before I got the achievement: [spoiler:968cd19c48] The whole gang's here[/spoiler:968cd19c48] but that's probably just a coincidence.

    Yes, but if you use the console(~), save and exit the game then reload then you can get achievements again.

    Also here is a list of codes for all companions:

    Arcade 0010d8eb
    Boone 00096bce
    Lily 0013d830
    Raul 000e6105
    Cass 00135f19
    Veronica 000e32a9
    Rex 0010d8df

    ED-E no upgrade 001732d1
    ED-E Brotherhood upgrade 001732CF
    ED-E Followers upgrade 001732D0

    I'd just like to point out that ED-E has a habit of getting stuck on the low ceilings and half-closed doors in Vaults especially. It's possible he's stuck somewhere in one of them, if you don't want to/can't use console commands.
