    I am just before the last mission on Insane difficulty and Hardcore mode on. For some strange reason I've got a bug which isn't allowing me to leave last bunker to go and fight calculator, I also believe I know how I activated the bug. Just after I completed Scott City I went to the bunker and accidentally left the bunker and cinematic come up. I went back to the bunker straight away and just as always, did my shopping, talked to Dekker for briefing and wanted to go and kick some more robot asses, but even when entire team is on green field - nothing happens. Is there any way to fix it? I already installed a patch hoping it fixes the bug - no, it doesn't. I also realised that my last extra save is on Rock Falls :/

    Did you ever get demoted or have your main character switch place in the squad? Because it sounds like this. You can try returning all your squad to the recruit master to see if you have any duplicate recruits otherwise you'll have to go back to Rock Falls. And save more often in separate slots in future.

    If you still need help, send me the file with saved game state and the "bunker05.mis" file from that version of FOT which was present before you installed the patch.

    Currently you may send me only the "Xeed.sav" file. However later, if I will need the "bunker05.mis" file I will inform you of the way you can obtain the file.

    I need your Xeed.sav file. The bunker05.mis is needed only for comparison with map data stored in your Xeed.sav file.
    Is the bunker05.mis from unpatched version of FT?

    The "Xeed.sav" has been fixed. Before you will start the game patch your FT to version 1.27, Jun 1 2001, otherwise you won't be able to load the game state from the file.

    The cause of the problem was a missing trigger titled "EXIT THE BUNKER - SLIDESHOW FOR END OF STAGE 5" removed by the game after it was executed, because it haven't had set an option which would cause that the trigger would be preserved by the game. This bug was probably present in an old version of FT, because in version 1.27 it isn't present. This bug is also present in several special encounters thus be careful. Once you will find such encounter, don't revisit it, because you won't be able to leave the map.

    Get ready for the final battle with Calculator and have fun time!

    Did you download the XeedFixed.zip file?
    Did you unpack the XeedFixed.sav file from XeedFixed.zip archive to the "core\user\save" directory?
    Did you load the game state titled XeedFixed?
