DC: Dismissed recruits disappearing

Post by Armin » October 14th, 2015, 9:40 am

With the DC, NPCs dismissed from the party do not return to the Citadel.
The only one that seems to work normally is Scotchmo. He was waiting in the lunchroom, like before.
Vulture's Cry, Chisel and Takayuki are simply gone. Not where I dismissed them, not where they are originally recruited, just gone.
Even Angela disappeared, and I dismissed her from the party right IN the Citadel.
Also, Pizepi Joren never showed up in Darwin after I helped the mutants there, despite me having the required 22 combined charisma in the party.
What's wrong with the NPCs. folks? :?:

With science, you can turn a frog into a Ph.D. ..
... and still keep the frog you started with!

Can confirm, tried it with Vulture's cry. Dismissed her, and she disappeared after I changed location on the World Map, and is not in the Citadel.

Yeah, this has been reported on Steam forums too. Damn, just stopped my playthrough in its tracks. I would be really mad if certain characters disappeared since I dismissed them temporarily...

Same for me, any dismissed companion seems to be gone forever.

Edit: Lex and Pizepi have shown up at the Citadel, but no one else.

Same problem here, real bummer.

What happened to them all sticking around in the Citadel after "registering" them with the dude in the mess hall ?

Dismissed both Angela Deth and Vulture Cry in Highpool, walked to Ranger Citadel and can confirm - both NPCs nowhere to be found.

Just tested it on the ps4.. they disappear on the console as well. I even tried dropping them off in the lunchroom but they aren't there on return.

Ralphy gone from citadel, dismissed him in AG when I picked up Rose. Citadel hadn't opened yet, but when it did, I was able to get xp for him as a new ranger recruit, despite the fact that he's nowhere to be found lol. Now I'm just avoiding new NPCs until a fix...

I can not find dismissed recruits (Xbox one)

Post by csniper » October 17th, 2015, 1:02 pm

I'm playing Director's cut on Xbox one(I'm one of the Preview Member and using new dashboard). I dismissed Angela Deth to recruit Takayuki. After that I tried to find her in Ranger Citadel, but I was not able to find her. I hung around all of the Ranger Hall. I also dismissed Takayuki to recruit Ralphy, but I was not able to find him too.

Finally, I dismissed all of my NPC members. I went out out to the world map and come back to Ranger Citadel. I hung around all of the places in Ranger Citadel to find them. no ones there. What's wrong with my game?????????

Known bug. Hopefully it'll be patched soon as it's a pretty big one.

[Director's Cut] Dismissed NPCs are gone

Post by praguepride » October 17th, 2015, 5:33 pm

In the Rail Nomads camp I dismissed Angela Deth and Pizepi to make room for Scotchmo and Ralphy. By this point I had already gotten the "new recruit" reward for Pizepi (and tried it for Angela). This is also prior to Demonta (hadn't reached Titan yet).

I dismissed them via the pop up menu to accept Ralphy/Scotchmo.

When I returned to Ranger HQ they were not present anywhere that I could find. They weren't in the cafeteria where I would find dismissed recruits in the pre-Director's cut version. I searched inside and out, looking on both the map and the rooms but could not find them. I think dismissed Scotchmo INSIDE Ranger HQ.

I traveled back to Rail Noamds and confirmed that Angela/Pizepi were no longer in the places I dismissed them (they weren't). I then traveled back to Ranger HQ and now Scotchmo is completely missing (despite dismissing him via the character screen inside the citadel).

Ya it seems they are aware of the issue but not sure of the cause or have a solution yet.

DC stands for Definitive Console Edition - Directors Cut was a misnomer.

another bug containing npc recruitment is that dismissed npc wont give all stuff to party ( which makes sense in some point) but new npc after joining party he has nothing even it shows on him that hes gun etc

Glad I saw this thread. However, I already swapped out Angela Deth with Takayuki. Sure enough, back at Ranger Citadel she is nowhere to be found. Wow. I guess the Wasteland really is dangerous!

Not game breaking but makes one wonder how rigorously the DC was playtested.

So, I think I might have found a work around. When you first get a new NPC, if you let them into your party and then immediately dismiss them, they will show up at Ranger Citadel. Did this with both Chisel and Takayuki, and they didn't disappear. Unfortunately, Angela and Scotchmo are MIA before I figured this out, but that's life, I guess.
