    Oooohhh I was on the tower and had no clue what to do when I had it in my inventory thanks!

    Edit:
    Okay I'm still stuck, I'm on the top of the building in the slums after climbing and there doesn't seem to be a single spot to use the filter

    Only did it the first time I've played, so I can't remember on what exactly you use the filter on (but it's on top of the tower).

    It's better to sell it as you get the same Reputation and EXP, but also couple thousand $.

    So, I am currently in the Bunker in
    New Reno behind Stryker.
    I am near the computers, and I am in front of a door that needs a key card to unlock. I keep using the metal detector near the computer and the crates, but nothing comes up. Only "That does nothing." message appears.

    Help?

    You could wait until you get the upgrade for the metal detector (missing prospectors quest in Reno slums). It doubles the range of it so it's easier to find items.

    I don't remember the exact spot where the keycard is, but it should be in the same room you're looking in.

    Loot in that room is OK

    There’s an outsdoormen skill check when you use the metal detector, I think it’s pretty big for the item you’re looking for. I believe it’s in corner. In my experience most of the metal detectors items are exactly on the tile touching a wall or object

    do you have some scrap of paper you had very early in the game. I am not sure though but I remember for certain you get keycard. Or try again in Strykers place ask

    Hello. It's me again. I am currently in
    Hawthone, and I went to a building that had turrets inside
    , I disabled them, and used the computer using the Science skill. I chose "[Close the security protocols of the building]", the screen then shows "Done." then I can say "Good move to avoid future troubles.". This is supposed to cancel the forcefield on the second floor, but it doesn't. Interacting with the computer again shows the exact same choices, and nothing happens. It just makes me choose the close security protocols option and that's it. Nothing that I do disables the forcefield. Can't use Science or Repair skills on it, the computer doesn't do its job, and now I am stuck.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Dunno that seems weird as I used science. I thought you get an answer like. " You have disabled turrets,,, etc , so things are ok for any future visits. Try explosive to blow forcefield if it's a doorway blocked. Or reload. Well you have said the same really unless it needs higher science. Try later or neck a few mentats.

    Computer only disables turrets. You can disable them like the force fields in other Fallouts- Repair (using Tools gives you extra bonus), Science or blow it up.

    You can buy a Tool in Reno railway station and if you use it on slot machines on Hawthorne (in bar and casino) you can get a few hundred $.

    Yeah. I did the slot machines just with a crowbar I think. Also opened newspaper stand. I overthink things sometimes and tried to short the fusebox in SLC with the copper cigs case which I know was part of a mission.
    My Biggest slip up was helping the tribals to rid the gang. I waltzed upstairs and killed big Loui cos he came at me lol. The penny dropped when I found the trumpet. I often run through games in an unorthodox way lol.

    Have you ever spotted this video ? The uploader looks a bit like me.

    I had the same issue on the forcefield, use a hot key for science or repair, THEN click on the forcefield, don’t click on the forcefield first trying to use a skill it won’t work

    How do I heat the key ? I stashed my Flamethrower because of it's weight and that lighter isn't worth a wank. You can also find a piece of cheese and if throwing is 75 or more, or you have a backstory which includes, volleyball player, baseball pitcher or grenadier guard you can throw cheese over to the other side. This spawns a pigratpig that comes from out of the wall cavity and ploughs/plows into the forcefield. This causes disentanglement cooks the pigratpig and clears the way. If you have previously converted to Mad Mullah or Rabid Rav you cannot use meat as { feast for the people achievement ). If you have not been able to find the cheese use a blunt knife to scrape your bell end and rub the smeg over a packet of mentats or similar.
    The pool ball will not work as it rolls too far. {logic}

    Is that a revised score for my absurdist post or are you saying you have a lower than average 4/10 sense of houmus ?

    No the first post was still a 0/10, your retort on my rating was funnier so I gave that a 4/10

    Hello,

    recently i started playing the Nevada mod for FO2, which is great so far.
    As i advanced through the game and wondered how to get forward with the main storyline, so i checked a walkthrough, but it seems that i am stuck somehow:

    I did not receive a message from Jay when entering Hawthorne
    I cannot get "Bridgeport" on my map, so i cannot continue the main storyline.
    Walkthrough is saying, i would get the location from the computer in the secret bunker in New Reno, at which i can talk to the Bikers. But using the computer with high science skill, the machine only offers me the dialogue option to get to know about the history of the bunker.
    I also cannot use the signal jammer on the radar equipment, console is telling me "That does nothing".
    Any hints?

    This is the walkthrough i am referring to

    You are talking of the bunker behind Strykers place ? Yeah. Did you get through the last door ? Or if you need to up INT which helps science drop 1 or 2 mentats. I can't remember if you try computer again you can hack it. Or there is somethin in the last room. Hate to be vague but I's a while since I finished it. I uninstalled as well to go through resurrection again,

    By the looks of things you may not have got as far in Hawthorne as you may think
