@zpals I just got through the bug last night. Apart from the main story I avoided everything else. Except for a game of dice in Norway and leveling up my gear and skills. Took about 20 hours. Looking forward to collecting all the side quests and wealth now.
I've done a manual save at the end of each region completion. I'm just finishing oxenfordshire then there's sciropeshire and lyndon if memory serves. The only thing I did extra was a game of urlog in Norway.
I've just come across this. Loaded a save game before cent but still occurred. What's the concensus? I saw an earlier post which said they'd restarted the game and not done any side quests and it was fine. Anyone else found this?
