    There is an older post similar to this, that I already replied to, but several days later and there's still no response, so I figure that making a new topic is okay. The problem is simple. I've finished the boss fight and after climbing over the wall, either by using the ladder or climbing the wall itself, you're supposed to open the gates by destroying two locks. I've done that, but nothing else happens. There is no popup or no prompt for the quest to continue. I already tried loading an older save, the one where you invade the village, prior to activating a cruel destiny.

    I'm really reluctant to start from an even older save, or heck, to start over from scratch! Because it takes a few hours to get there and I'd be [censored] if the same thing were to happen. One solution is to look for a savegame after this point, and maybe this is just semantics, but I want this to be MY game, not someone else's.

    I have no idea what the problem could possibly be, and I want this resolved!

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @ubi-peach My apologies but I can't do that, because I'm pretty sure, I figured out what the problem was. In the settings, there is the option to turn off the prompt where the use key appears, right? For other things too? Like, press 'E' to do Z. I think I may have turned that off, so the use key wouldn't be there. And I also think you need to hold it for a few seconds (or at least faster then just hitting and releasing) Combine those two things and you have my problem.

    In other words, in someone else has this problem, they need to verify their settings and make sure that the prompt shows up and then make sure to hold it for at least a few seconds. But even so, perhaps it could be patched, so it activates automatically after the locks are destroyed, instead of holding the use key to do it?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Hello @kradking! Sorry you are unable to progress in "A Cruel Destiny." Did you encounter anything odd during the cutscene for this mission? Any crashing? Could you also provide me with a video showing you are unable to open the gate? You can upload that video to your video hosting website of choice and provide me with the URL here.
