Default Stuck at Forsaken Compound

I'm on the map 'forsaken compund' and I just cleared off a wave of enemies that spawn across catwalks about a swamp area in front of two big doors. Mostly tanks on the catwalks, the footsoldiers with the laser guns and witches.

Everything is dead now, the music is in 'normal' mode, not action mode so I know there's not some badguy stuck in a crack somewhere I need to kill, but the big double doors are locked still. I've looked all over the place for a switch or a way around but I'm not making any progress. I can't get up on the catwalk, there's two big shipping containers angled like you can walk up them and get on the roof near the double doors, and I can make it up there, but I'm blocked by invisible walls.

Anyone know where I'm talking about? I can't figure out what to do to progress.

Hello Dynotaku,
I am in exactly the same spot as you.
If I figure it out I'll be back with the answer.
It is driving me a bit crazy :-)

Is that the area where you have to get inside the elevator to go up? Trying to remember.

Thanks everyone trying to help :-)
I am still stuck in the spot that Dynotaku describes. If anyone else has an idea I will be grateful as I have been stuck here for about two hours of game play, looking for a "stuck" enemy, hidden switch or elevator.
Yikes!
hahaha

D-girl, if I understand you corrently...as suggested before (above)

stand in front of the door (facing it), turn 90 degrees to your left (3 o'clock), walk that way, and then the wall/building will make you make a little right-left turn - there you'll see a bunch of crates and some barrels - hoot into barrels, and BEHIND those is a HANDLE, take the handle, walk to the door, and on the post on the RIGHT side is a HOLE, approach it and press USE key ("F").

Now, if you're talking about scene after that - I suggest you use the cheat, s-bomb everything, save, edit the save file to remove cheat flag, and reload....

Hello Arach,

Yes, I am talking about the scene after it. I made it through the door where I found a handle, inserted it and moved into the next swamp area. So if I understand you correctly, there is no way to play the rest of the game and get past this point without cheating?

Sorry for being such a pain.

You could load your last save point or restart the level

Yeah, it's the part after you find the handle. That was easy, Nettie tells you what to do in that sexy British voice.

The exact place I'm talking about is after the intro of the Cerberus dogs, you move through a door and there's a bouncepad behind a water tank looking thing that bounces you to a secret health, then you can bounce back over to another small island and you get the double shotty, then you fight your way up to the area I described with the catwalks, tanks appear across the top slowly, about 5 of them while the footsoldier types run at you. I've cleaned out the whole area and I walk up to the door and it says it's locked, Nettie doesn't give any tips either.

If the action music stopped, and the door is still locked I think youll have to load your last save or restart the level

Yes, Dynotaku, this is right where I am also.

Thank you Arach for your "cheat" suggestion.
Is cheating the only way beyond this point? I mean is it a bug in the game?
Or is it because somewhere there is an undestroyed hidden enemy?

Thanks again everyone for the suggestions - I'll post upon my success --- or further failure - heehee

Ah, I figured it out. When I started that area, some of the times I went in, there's be a bunch of guys just inside the door that I'd have to kill and sometimes there wasn't. It looks like the game can miss triggers at time. apparently there's a wave of guys that spawns as you're approaching the door that didn't get triggered last time I played the level, it's about 15 footsoldiers and 6 of those blue and yellow floaty balls that shoot the blue beam at you.

I got past the area by simply replaying that part of the game again. I went to my single player game and hit 'continue playing' and it loaded me up right at the door that leads into that area. So I fought through, and this time that last wave spawned. So there's you're answer DevilGirl, just load up a save before you get to that area and fight through it again. It sucks, but that's the only way to get past apparently.

Hello gezzi, yes, I had to go back and replay the game from the "beast bashing the door down" too.

The double doors opened my second time through.

I believe it is a bug.

Good luck

Angry Stuck in Forsaken Campground RIG 13 Door Locked

I am stuck at the locked doors (RIG 13) after the beast breaks down the double doors in the Forsaken Campground.

I have followed the advice of others in this thread and replayed the level 4 times from the beginning and the doors are still locked.

I have searched for stuck enemies every time and the music is calm.

I applied the latest 2.064b patch before playing the game.

Ok...I redid that section and the doors opened this time. more guys did attack me that never did the first time. However, now after that, i have the same problem at the next set of doors..first time in..all these extra guys attacked. i got killed..upon trying again, they never appeared, so i kept going thru after getting the double barrel shotgun...got to this other set of blast doors, and they won't open now

Ok, after playing the level 10 times the RIG13 double doors finally opened.

What I noticed was that -Rocket Launcher- was failing to spawn.

I tested the beginning of the level 10 more times.

What I found:

1) If the -Rocket Launcher- does not spawn after defeating the first boss to enter the Forsaken Campground the next set of double doors (RIG13) will not open.

2) If the Rocket Launcher does not spawn a whole lot of the other baddies will fail to spawn for the rest of the level.
(This is probably why the doors will not open.)

3) Just before the RIG13 double doors:
Avoiding the Rocket Ammo, when you have no Rocket Launcher, and picking up the Plasma Ammo first prevents the Crate behind the Plasma Ammo from exploding open.

No Kidding! This is stupid. I had the problem with the past two doors. I'm starting to see why the call this level forsaken...

Good thing this game is so fun to play, because if it wasn't, I wouldn't be playing the same level 10 times just to get enemies to show up and doors to open. I'd throw it in the forsaken trash can.

Comeon Croteam, how many times did you actaually play test these maps? If you need a game tester, you could hire me. I would rather be paid to find these bugs than pay you for the game and then find them.

DeathTrick,
I admire and agree with your statement.
This bug should be addressed and fixed.
The game is great, fun, and I'll play it all the way through.
Croteam, take a listen to what us players are saying.

DevilGirl

p.s. Croteam, if you need someone that is brilliant and caring of consumer needs, I am available.

Believe me -- Crotem does monitor these boards and does their best to fix problems.

Your best bet, if you want to see these problems adressed, it to post in the Help and Support forums.

I hit a similar bug just before the prison level -- something failed to trigger, and I wound up having to replay it three times before I could advance. Let's move the discussion over to the appropriate forum and see if we can figure out what happened. Don't forget to post logs, if it happens again.
