I know you said you experienced the bug yourself, killap. Were you using the Hero Appearance Mod? If yes, could you please answer the four questions I set out in my earlier post (or at least as much as you can recall of it...)? If you are indeed using the Hero Appearance Mod, then it might be time to bring Mash on board for a look, since he undoubtedly knows better than anyone else what changes the Mod makes to sfall and the engine code. Then again, Goris is in a disguise of sorts -- given the reputation of the Deathclaw in game, people in the towns and cities of Fallout 2 are more than likely to shoot him on sight rather than let him walk about unmolested -- I think this was explained somewhere in one of the Fallout Bible pieces. So I think that maybe Redding shouldn't be rejecting Goris, but it doesn't necessarily mean that all places that reject Marcus and Lenny should automatically reject Goris. Then again, I don't have any of the game files in front of me at the moment, so maybe there is some dialogue justification for the behaviour. Chees, -- The Haen.
