Alright, I'll give it a shot. I'll play it safe first and just wait by Thomas for awhile and wait to see if he'll start it. Thanks for the help! Edit: Waiting around for him to start the session did not work, I even left to grab a bite and came back, no messages in the message box. I may try that area save method you mentioned, of course I'll back up all my original files before replacing anything. I think the cause of this may be that I had to go stand in front of the mat IMMEDIETELY upon entering the BOS bunker for the FIRST time, so I probably just need a save file where the player has just entered the bunker for the first time. Hopefully this works, haha.
