Let's try to keep some order regarding brief "Help! I'm stuck!" spoiler threads/posts all over the board.
If you can't find a relevant thread, then this is the place to post your question.

Random spoilers are often read accidentally and will make people unhappy and there will be complaints.
Nobody needs to complain about spoilers in this thread - it's a spoiler thread for spoilers. :D :cool:



WARNING!
If you don't wish to read spoilers... it's best you read no further...

Spoilers below




I'm stuck on the Barrett boss fight because I accidentally blew all of my ammo on the way down there. How the hell am I supposed to beat him? I mean, he keeps trapping me in a corner then picking me up and throwing me until I die, or he blows through my cover and kills me almost instantly. Is there something I am missing?

The area is enclosed, but you will find some small rooms. There are crates full of ammo and grenades (EMP and other types, I believe), as well as that, some weapons lockers, full of weapons at your disposal. You will also find explosive barrels, as well poisonous gas barrels, throw them at Barret, he'll simply get hit by it, and may mutter or say something.

I believe there are two of these rooms, but there should be enough to take him out.

Just some a hacking upgrade and stealth. Also an inventory upgrade but that's not going to help me. Wish I would have gone with thermal plating...

That doesn't leave you with many options, but like someone already posted, try to snatch some ammo, explosives and/or EMP grenades from the side rooms. Also consider throwing him some explosive/corrosive containers.

With stealth aug it is really easy... just go behind him... and of course you need some ammo that you can take in the two small rooms.

OK,I just beat him on Give Me Deus Ex without firing a single shot. Just evade his fire and with a little patience throw every single canister in the room at him. Throw a corrosive one(spraying those yellow clouds), followed by an explosive one, so that he remains inside the volatile cloud...rinse and repeat.

EDIT: I didn't use any augs or grenades aswell.

Barrett is indeed quite vulnerable to gas canisters. His hit animation for them is quite long and you can add damage on top of it with (like the previous poster said) throwing explosive barrel for example. The merchant at the beginning of the level also sell a gas grenade but in the room, there is enough to beat him with no augmentation. For myself, I put all my upgrades in the revolver I got from Zeke. One gas grenade, unleashed the revolver and he's dead before finishing the gas damage animation.

Since he's also a mech, EMP grenades will affect him, it will make him idle for a few seconds, enough time to throw an explosive barrel at him as well.

Bought the game today and nostalgia is everywhere. I have a question though:

After the hostage situation do you ever go back to Sarif Industries to like explore? When Jenson first arrives after his recovery I didn't want to miss the hostage situation so I pretty much rushed to the helipad. So yeah, do I ever get the chance to explore Sarif's again, except this time without a time limit :x

So I'm going to get the antenna and after the second ladder there is a hallway with obvious mines on the wall. In the walkthrough demo I saw online the player simply approached slowly and he was able to defuse the mines. The only aug I have right now is cloak and that doesn't seem to help either. Every time I get close, slowly, crouched, cloaked, it doesn't matter, they still blow up. I'm on medium difficulty. What am I doing wrong?

so i have to wait til wensday to get the game cuz i was busy today,and ive read all the previews and in the first mission with the hostages and milwauke and zeke sanders and that protype i read if you spend too much time in sarif the hostages will die, if i do the mission immeaditly will i be able to explore sarif later?

Well the game is out and I noticed we don't have a thread actually talking about it yet, so has anyone had any really bad botch ups. Where you where trying to do something only to have it totally go haywire.

Mine was when I went to the police station. I didn't even know that was where I was heading. I just found a vent when exploring, but I said I'm here I might as well do that thing I needed to do. I was doing well at the start. I was being all sneaky, using the vents and stunning the guards. Then it happened that people caught me coming out of a vent. I was able to use non lethal for awhile, but got lost and kept getting caught hacking. It wasn't long till I had to switch to a pistol to keep up with all the people attacking me. long story short, I killed about everyone in there. I felt real bad about it.

Throw a barrel at them from a safe distance (I would also like to know if/how you can manually disable mines)

My question is about the special bonuses awarded after missions are completed (or rather major checkpoints...)

How on earth are you supposed to get the Smooth Operator bonus? I've gone through the first two missions without being spotted by any mechanical detection, not being spotted by a human, and no bodies being spotted by either as well and I'm simply not getting this bonus. I tried the first main mission over again and made sure 100% that I was never spotted. I was spotted once but then reloaded and was not spotted since yet never get the bonus, yet I keep getting the Ghost bonus.:nut: Does being detected during a hacking session count as an alarm?

I'm sorry but this is idiotic.

Why do you need to use spoiler tags, in a spoiler thread? In the title it clearly say's post spoilers here. In the very 1st post it says be warned of spoilers.

I'm sure people who are attempting to avoid spoilers would avoid this thread. So why the need for spoiler tags?

Probably because people can ask certain questions in a way that are not completely spoilerish and then go into specifics in the spoiler. Not everyone wants to read through each post looking for something maybe related to their own issue only to see a bunch of other things listed that they didn't even know about yet.

Just crouch, and while crouching walk (not run) towards the mine. Then hit 'activate' to turn them off. You can then add them to your inventory.

They really really need more sub-forums here, was going to make a question/discussion thread but because of the silly spoilers only in one thread rule it gets dumped here so...

Below is a question to others that touches on first real mission (between tutorial and first mission) painfully minor spoilers.

On one hand I appreciate the inclusion of lethal/non-lethal at the start of the games first real mission as a throw back to the originals options when talking to your brother but...

Lethal = Revolver OR Rifle
Non-Lethal = Tazer OR Tranq

Is it just me or is this just a bit measly, cant our organisation afford to give you both? e.g...

Lethal = Revolver AND Rifle
Non-Lethal = Tazer AND Tranq

I mean I quite like the idea of limiting your ammo as they do but... is this only me, did they blow the budget on your sunglasses and trench coat so they cant afford to at least arm you for close quarter and ranged assault?

I mean if you compare the original, you start by default with the 10 mm handgun, a prod, then your brother offers you the option of rifle, GEP or crossbow...

Oh, now that I think of it, doesn't he also give you the knife at the same time?

Doesn't make that much sense in story terms (unless Sarif's trying to test you), but in gameplay terms it would make you far too powerful for the first mission and opening missions.

And no, you get the knife slightly later I think.

I'm quite far in this game, been playing for about 10 days or so, and I'm playing on Give Me Deus Ex.
So with Barrett:

With the 1st boss fight I beat him first time simply by using EMP's and cloaking then stunning him with the taser, took me about 16 - 20 shots with a souped up 10mm for him to go down.

@Hyperbolic

I did the same but didn't get the smooth operator bonus till you leave Detroit and go to the FEMA camp, I think this is because I talked my way into the Police Station and the DRB base didn't have any cameras.

In the first mission there are two hacking tutorials, did you watch them ? They are really helpful imo.

Other tips:
I try to remain undetected as long as possible, so i conquer a single path (of easy nodes). Only if i'm detected or right before the exit node, i start to conquer other nodes (like the data nodes) and improve own nodes.

Important to remember: You can hack in parallel, i.e. you don't have to wait for one node to finish, you can order multiple tasks at once.

Also, as long as you are not detected, do not rush. You have all the time in the world to look for a good path (and check detection probabilities), you can only trigger a detection if you are actively hacking a node (and also if you improve your own nodes).

I had the same exact question the O.P. listed. I did watch the tutorial & was still confused as to what I had to do. My first attempt ended in success, but I'm not sure why or how.

Can someone break this process down in layman's terms ?

thanks

You - the blue player - must get all the green round globes to win. To do that, you need to conquer the nodes between your start node and the green globes. You can conquer a node (select the top option when clicking a node) only if you already own a node connected to it . At the start of the minigame, you are hidden.

The enemy - the red player - wins if he conquers the node you started from. To do that, he needs to conquer nodes in the same way you do (starting at the red start position). As long as you are hidden, the red player won't do anything.

However, every time you conquer a new node, there is a chance the red player awakens and starts to conquer on his own. This chance depends on the difficulty of the node, which can be lowered with augmentations. And thats the whole story :)



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are some special nodes, like data nodes that give you some additional reward like experience or money, and nodes that change the game a bit - slowing down the enemy, change node difficulty etc.. You can also slow down the enemy by improving the nodes you already conquered (the bottom option if you click a node), but the main concept is in the first three paragraphs.

If a hacking game is very difficult to solve, you can use special items called stop worm and nuke virus. If you use a stop worm (by selecting the left option when clicking a node), the enemy will do nothing for a few seconds, so you have more time. If you use a nuke virus (by selecting the right option when clicking on a unconquered node), the node is captured instantly (saving you time), and if you are still hidden, you will stay hidden.

Try it out a few times, you have several attempts. You can stop a hacking attempt by pressing ESC without triggering alarm, btw

Invest some Praxis points into stealth hacking add-ons and other hacking related augs. They will certainly help out when hacking into devices.

When you are hacking, look for a datastore (The cube looking node), it contains some rewards when completed. They are either credits, a STOP! Worm, and a Nuke Virus. The last two rewards help you out when you're attempting to hack into another device. The STOP! Worm will stop the timer temporarily, and the Nuke Virus will allow you to take over any node without being caught.

@DeusVirgin, your main goal is to get the data registry (I think that's what its called), or the green circle. But along that route, you will come across files/directories, data stores etc. You need to get there quickly, because once you're detected, a countdown will begin. If you don't make it in time, you will either have to try again, or you may end up getting caught.

Usually, each node has a percentage of how much you will get detected. Even if its the lowest, you still may get detected. Make sure to go for the lowest level file (Level 1 files being the lowest).

Also some paths will show arrows pointing into a certain direction, if you're on the 'right' end of it, you can go through, however, if you're on the other end, you won't be able to get through, so keep that in mind.

It's not going to get easier from this point, you will get more harder maps to go through, but once you've got the basic grasp of the hacking mini game, you will find it a piece of cake. Just be patient, and look for safe openings. If you fail at the hacking part, and can't do it, there's an alternative, which is to find the password or code from somewhere else (Pocket Secretaries, or other computers).

It's not easy explaining this mini game, but I hope what I said helps! :)

You loose that, but you can try again. However, if the red guy gets a reward node you conquered before, you still get the reward as long as you win the game.

I snuck into the police station using my leg augs and snuck through the air ducts while looking for evidence about the police investigation into Megan's death. When you walk through the vents, you can see into one locked office with a shotgun in the corner but the vents have no entrance to it.

I've tried hacking into the office but I can't do it fast enough between police patrols in the hallway and always end up spotted. I've tried throwing boxes and fire extinguishers to pull them out of position but I still can't do it fast enough.

Has anyone found the passcode for this office in their travels?

Edit: Hahah, I used my silent movement and dropped a box right in front of the hacking terminal. I got alarmed shortly after unlocking the door but if you make it inside the office you can hide under the desk until things die down pretty easily.

Edit2: I believe I have found it, 2231 should be the code to get you in.

Does anyone know what the exact requirements for getting the Ghost bonus are? Are you allowed to alarm the guards in any way, ie Suspicious/Alarmed status. Are you allowed to kill them as long as they don't see you, such as with a sniper rifle? What about if you use a tranq dart from the roof without ever alarming anyone? How about the stun gun? What about punching through a wall with the aug and snaping someones neck?

I know in my limited testing on the first real level I threw a box at someones face from the roof without being seen by them and still received the Ghost bonus so I am no longer sure just how far you can go.

Love the game so far, but I am trying to figure out if there is a pass code log (like the media log). Most passcodes I find in game do come from emails etc so I can find them in the media log, but in one of the first sidequests I was able to persuade a security guard into giving me the passcode to a safe... Yet there is no record of what that password was after he said it. I would have taken note of it, but it came up with a notification "//New code learned"... So I figured it is keeping it somewhere?

I figured it has to be in the game somewhere and I am just not finding it. Like most older gamers, I can't always complete a mission in one session, so if I save then come back to the game... I won't remember the password...

Anyways, please help.

Thanks.

I went straight for the hardest difficulty and I'm just wondering if the really low ammo counts are due to game design or difficulty choice. It's not really been a problem or anything (although I rarely have more than 8 -10 shots for my stun gun and tranq rifle) since I'm going the non-lethal route and trying not to take on any enemies I don't have to, I'm just doing a lot more melee than I anticipated.

I guess another question would be, should stores be restocking ammo? Since enemies tend to only have lethal weapons I bought up all the ammo I could from the few vendors I've run into and they never restock.

Is this normal? A couple of mines and shotgun up close and down he goes. I was suprised the fight was over before it started. Is this it?

Are the other boss fights more difficult or is it the same thing?

I'm playing on deus ex difficulty, so it's not like I can ramp up the difficulty any further.

Hey all,
Towards the end of Shanghai Justice, I'm asked to hack a terminal upstairs in the Hive. Simple enough, but there's a bouncer in the corner watching me, and he'll fire on me a few seconds into hacking. I tried knocking him out, but that causes a huge wave of other guards to come running and generally just makes a mess. I'd rather not have to massacre the entire population just to hack this terminal. Am I missing something?

FIRST: im not a COD player in fact im pretty sure i have never played one, the last fps game i've played was mass-effect 2

Map: Sarif under siege
system: 360
Role: using non-kill bullets
difficult: Give me a Challenge (i thought this was medium?)

run 1: through front door ran into patrol's inside (dead with-in 3 hits)
run 2: found roof access got in cleared room, died in firefight in second room
run 3: roof access stealth past first room, firefight in second room, firefight in hallway cleared both, hacked door into big room cleared that. side room spotted by camera's attacked by guards died in firefight (can not mess with camera's?)
run 4: in progress

so im i missing something? do i just not attack guards at all?

do i change difficulty?

odd that im augmented but still so weak?

i don't think it a bug? im pretty sure that how they made the game

24th Aug 2011, 23:13
I chose the lethal route as well and foolishly expended my sleep darts early on. I spen the rest of the run doing stealth takedowns with the occasional firefight. The thing is, there are generally lots of people that will come running if you get into a firefight so it's best to whittle them down a bit first with silent takedowns.

the other option would be to use praxis points (such as you have access to) to bolster your armor first giving you survivability in a firefight.

OK, firstly, Mass Effect 2 is not an FPS. You could argue that it's a shooter rather than an RPG, sure, but it's not first person.

After that: you can play DXHR by shooting your way through, but that doesn't mean you can just run and gun, at least not until you've upgraded your augs. You'll still have to use cover and think tactically. There's an action route available, but it's more Rainbow Six: Vegas than Serious Sam.

yea same problem with the non-lethal route

Firstly, if you take three bullets to the face you're either in a horrible position or not behind cover. Stand behind cover and wait for them to finish shooting, or shoot them just as they pop out. Standing in the open = dead. And yes, that's intentional.
If you're going stealthy just use the takedowns. I did the entire first mission without me or the enemies firing a single bullet(or dart).
Watch the guard patterns for a few seconds so you know what they do, find one who's not visible to the others at some point in his route, walk up to him, press Q (that is, takedown, dunno what it is for the xbox) and drag him behind something. Rinse, repeat. And remember you can hide and just throw something somewhere else, the guards will investigate and you can takedown as they walk over.



Anyways, I'm wondering if you can somehow disable those laser tripwires (not mines) without setting them off. I found some in a level 5 hackable door behind the two gangsters bothering that guy with the tape during the stolen neuropozyne quest. They release poison gas, and I can't seem to just put stuff in front of them like in deus ex, at least my attempts so far just seems to make the gas keep coming. Also blowing them up or shooting them results in the same thing. Does the gas just dissipate really really slowly?

go in the back wher u find tongs office, find a carbage can... put it on the table next to the security guys standing at the balcony ( the ones who come running when u take him down.. now, thers a door behind him, open it from the inside, do the takedown, and quickly move him inside the door to the back area.. hide the body... and your good to go

My question is about the special bonuses awarded after missions are completed (or rather major checkpoints...)

How on earth are you supposed to get the Smooth Operator bonus? I've gone through the first two missions without being spotted by any mechanical detection, not being spotted by a human, and no bodies being spotted by either as well and I'm simply not getting this bonus. I tried the first main mission over again and made sure 100% that I was never spotted. I was spotted once but then reloaded and was not spotted since yet never get the bonus, yet I keep getting the Ghost bonus.:nut: Does being detected during a hacking session count as an alarm?
in general to get the bonus you need to
have it go to the "alarmed" state I'm not sure if "suspicious" counts or not. This means that getting detected while hacking counts. so
Be sure to disconnect before that happens if you are trying for fleetest of the foxes.
in the first real mission it might be
the turret which is hard to avoid when getting to the terminal that disables it

You can only pick up crossbow bolts that headshot and don't lodge into a wall. If you bodyshot someone or skewer them into a wall then the bolt will snap.

I've heard peeps say that they are there when returning from another hub, but they weren't sure if they stayed after shutting down the game and picking up where you left off later. I'm not far enough along to find out one way or the other - I *just* completed the hostage mission in Detroit, and I've been playing a few hours a day since Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Yeah, I'm slow. I'm playing stealthy, and I tried a few different things (reloading a save/quicksave to try a different approach) before getting into the mission proper.

Alternately: Is there actually a way to take down robots without having them turn ''hostile''? I noticed that if you, say, EMP them, they will still turn hostile toward ''you'' for 5 seconds before self-destructing, even tho they have no idea of whom or where you are. Don't get me wrong, I like mysels some robot-killing, but not at the sake of my ghost bonus, so i'm basically looking for a way to take down the robot without him ruining my ghost bonus.

On a sidenote: does wrecking a robot counters the pacifist achievement?

:mad2:

I just got to the part of the game where you rescue the Sarif scientists at the WHO. The mission log says that the door to Megan Reed's location is open, and so does my minimap. I'm talking about the large steel door right next to the office containing the virus upload point. The door should be open. It is not.

I don't want to reload another save, because I have no autosaves before the glitch happened, and my closest manual save is 2 levels before this one. If there is noclip, or if anyone knows of a website that could supply me with a hack that would get me to be able to pass through a wall, let me know.

has anyone saved malik with this equipment. 10mm (with antiarmor and laser), heavy gun, sniper rifle, dart rifle, stun gun. the closets ive gotten is finally taking out the robot with an emp grenade. just after it exploded she died so i dont know if the emp grenade is actually hurting her or what. i think i missed a sniper but i had taken out everyone else at that point. im on "give me deus ex" mode. i saw the G4TV video on it but its for console and clearly on easy mode cause that guy missed a bunch of times. even if i hit everyone the first time i just keep running out of time. thanks for any help.

Okay, this is a question regarding the inventory.

Am I just daft or is there no way to slot things in the little inventory bar manually like we could in Deus Ex 1(dragging items to it, for example)? I tried looking through controls and moving my mouse over to it while having the Inventory open, but I couldn't even reach it - couldn't remove the items at 0 remaining(like an accidentally drunk whiskey bottle), not change the order of my weapons.

Am I missing a control somewhere?

Ok on Cloak & Daggers I think I hit a glitch. According to the gamespot guide when you take down the MCBs there should be six of them. When I went to the room there were only 5 and the last marker is pointing up into the sky so how the heck am I supposed to finish this mission?

I played the on the same mode for that part, and I just threw 2 frag grenades at the robot, it blew up, though I don't think it hurt Malik, then I dealt with the guys with the heavy machine guns (I think it's them and the robot that does the most damage to her) and then the normal guards, I dealt with the snipers last, they take a while to reload after firing. It's pretty hard tbh and I had to retry it a fair few times. I mostly used the stun gun, takedowns and the cloak so they don't see me coming. But with your weapons, you should be okay :)

So i've been playing all day, having fun, sneaking up to people and then KOing them for extra trollpoints.
But then, i open a door, and there's lawrence barett.


So how am i going to beat this grenadespamming idiot?
First of all, since my character was mainly stealth and nonlethal focussed, i always sold/dropped anything that could shoot lead or exploded. I have 3 types of nonlethal weapons, and a gas grenade.
Also all the praxis points went to stealth/hack/social augs, so i have almost no armor.

So far i tried different strategies, but everytime it seems that it might work, i get spammed with about 8 grenades being thrown all around me.

So how does the sneaking/stealth/social gameplay fit with this bossbattle.
It seems like i stepped into a totally different game.
There isnt even something in the enviroment what can be hacked to give a advantage.
There's no "convincable" npc that warned me about him, or gave me tips about what i should expect.

I do see some weapons and ammo in the corners of the room, though whenever i go there i just get stuck behind a wall of grenades.

So since i cant "nukevirus" him to death or spam him to death with my little dartgun..
How am i going to beat this character???

The stupid boss battles are probably the biggest down-point for this game. It basically tells you "ohhhhhhh, you wanted to use stealth and smarts to get by? Play-time's over. It's kill or be killed, now."

You answered your own question. The room is stockpiled with weapons and ammo. Make use of them.

Conversely, you can just start throwing explosive barrels at him like Donkey Kong.

like i said, when i go into a stockpile room, i get grenadespammed before i can even equip the first weapon...

EDIT:

i eventually managed by...

backtracking the entire mission back to the big elevator, i remembered i saw a RPG laying there.
Though because of me sneaking all the time i never picked it up since that thing is kinda loud and lethal...

Still had to sneak/ko about 10 other guards on my way back and forth...

All this could be solved by just having a "ammo room" just before the bossfight.
Doesnt seem so strange, having a ammo depot in a military complex.

Also the AI of that boss was kinda strange,
i got about 3 rockets on his chest, and then he died by his own grenades (because i was hiding very close to him)

The stun gun works wonders against Barret. It shocks him and makes him immobile for a few seconds which gives you just enough time to grab a barrel that is near you (if you gotta run to the barrel you won't make it) and toss it at him. I actually had 3 frag mines in my inventory from sneaking up to the antennae in d-row so after I shocked him I tossed those at his feet. The stun gun itself does some damage as well, when I fought him the KO hit was with a stun gun.

I'm trying to get Foxiest of the Hounds on Deus Ex. I'm at the part where you speak to the Dutchman, I have the passport and smart card. So when the video finishes, I have the choice of giving him a gun or not. I've tried it with a revolver and no gun. In any case, the enemy becomes alarmed. Does this affect Foxiest of the Hounds? Also, how do you get out without being seen?

I'm slightly disappointed, because up to this point, I haven't even been suspicious'd or had any interaction with enemies (except Barrett of course)

If someone from Eidos could shed some spoiler light on the actual requirements for Foxiest of the Hounds, that'd be appreciated. i.e. what are the requisites, and are there exceptions? I'd think the above situation is unavoidable if not having the enemy alarmed is required, but if they mean alarms can't be set off (as in wall alarms, trip lasers, failed hacks, security cams/turrets/bots), then that's different.

Forgot to mention: I'm trying to beat the game without any augments.

This might be old news, but I found a secret area on the left side of the Derelict Row building in Detroit. On the outside of the building, there's a ladder and stairs that lead you to an opening into the building on the top floor. Inside is an empty hallway, but if you blow a hole in the wall with the crack, it will automatically knock out an enemy standing on the other side. His buddy will be alarmed try to find you. After taking him out, you will be standing in a secret closed in area that seems to serve no purpose. I couldn't find any more weak walls and no treasure of any sort. Why are these guys here and what were they guarding? How did they get in there?

Has anyone found out if there's anything more to this area?

So I'm going to get the antenna and after the second ladder there is a hallway with obvious mines on the wall. In the walkthrough demo I saw online the player simply approached slowly and he was able to defuse the mines. The only aug I have right now is cloak and that doesn't seem to help either. Every time I get close, slowly, crouched, cloaked, it doesn't matter, they still blow up. I'm on medium difficulty. What am I doing wrong?



crouch and make sure you are walking slow, not running, you can approach them easily, disarm them and put them in your inventory

I'f you look left in the empty hallway there is what looks like an old elevator shaft and if you have the 'Icarus Landing System' you can jump down without dying. It's a good way of not getting detected while trying to enter.

go in the back wher u find tongs office, find a carbage can... put it on the table next to the security guys standing at the balcony ( the ones who come running when u take him down.. now, thers a door behind him, open it from the inside, do the takedown, and quickly move him inside the door to the back area.. hide the body... and your good to go

Are you serious? If this is the official way of doing this sidequest then that's ridiculous beyond belief. I have to stack a garbage can next to a security guard? I haven't even been able to do it, there are drinks on the table and they tip the garbage can over. Not to mention that when you move behind the guy watching the hack console he gets alarmed and quickly turns hostile. There must be some logical way to complete this task.

27th Aug 2011, 10:22
And what the earth are these women that are combined with Hyron?

There's an email in TYM that seems to explain that. It refers to something called a Drone Suit or Harness for Project Hyron, and that drones are expiring faster than intended. Presumably Hyron needs a human component, and until then they had just been putting in new random people as they expire.

So...

I started this mission, running around a bit, not killing anybody, not setting off any alarms, but exploring a lot. Finally I reach the hostages through the ventilation shaft but I have to realize they are already dead and the side doors are open? Did some google search and realized I might have been too slow. So, knowing where to go now, I reload my static save right from the beginning of the mission, running the hell to them, taking out just 2 guys (the one right in the beginning and the one in the locker room). Racing to them and... they are dead, again. And are dead when I enter the room. No chance to disarm the bomb. Is this a bug? Or is it a way of DE:HR to say "sorry buddy, don't try to cheat me by reloading"? :scratch:

just noticed I got the following achievement:

I read somewhere that if you take your time at Sarif HQ, David Sarif comes on the comms and says the situations has gotten worse, the hostages were killed. It's probably what happened.

This seems to be the most likely reason. They were dead before you even got there. Make sure you don't take too much time exploring Sarif HQ before getting to the helipad. You get two messages from Sarif about how slow you're being. The first is just David *****ing 'cause you're taking so long (about five minutes after the start of the level), and the second is the "just gotten worse" line (about 5 minutes after the first warning), by which time it's too late to save them.

Something I noticed that may help is that when I got to the cafeteria, David asked where I was and Adam responded with, "Almost there." or "I'm in the cafeteria." Something like that. Anyway, after that minor dialogue, I explored around the cafeteria and outside around the helipad and had no warnings and the hostages were alive when I got there. I didn't experiment, but getting to the cafeteria and getting that dialogue *might* be the flag for getting to the helipad in time, so if you do that, you *may* be able to explore the entire facility with no time constraints.

OK, I will clear this up for everyone:
There is a time limit. The first time Sarif calls you is after 7:30 minutes and asks what takes you so long. The second time he calls you is after 15 minutes and that is the timelimit after which hostages die. So you can't explore Sarif HQ more than those 15 minutes if you want to save hostages. Learned that already in leak because first time i was taking too much time and failed to save hostages so on my second time i decided to take time to see how long you can go around Sarif HQ and be able to save hostages.

Yeah. And there seems to be certain objectives that don't behave properly with regards to Smooth Operator and Ghost. I saved my game after getting a Smooth Operator and Ghost bonus and then just hid in a vent waiting for the next objective to complete (waiting for an elevator to arrive), but did not get the bonus. So I don't even feel like finishing my second playthrough now.

I have this same problem too, I messed up the conversation and then I "accidentally" killed the lady I was suppposed to collect money from. I dont have the lung-augmentations to survive the poison gas, and my Hacking capture is at level 2. What to do? Deus Ex wiki mentioned something about ventilating system and one tunnel overlooking Tong's office... where can I access it? From the sewers? I only have 1 praxis point, so I think I'll have to collect some XP to get the another point needed to activate the lung augmentation...

I didn't even killed her, she said about the money "you have to take it from me".

So I discapacitated her and then looted her body. Then took barman money.

Went back I can only turn in her augment.
Bug? idk.

I've had totally the same, Talking to tong didn't go right, killed the woman in the bartenders mission, seemingly go blocked off on all approaches I took, eventually had a sense of humour failure and killed entire crowd of club. Now Tong won't chat to me and i'm just stuck wondering around with a bemused look on my face.. Can't find anyway to advance at all. Bit silly imo.

[UPDATE] There in the basement of the Hive, you can go to a vent grate looking into an office, you can spy on tong through that and see him talking to some belltower guy, through that you get the address of the hacker.

Did anyone do the Sidequest in Hengsha or whatever where the Bartender wants monthly payment from Jaya (because they gave her a social augmentation)?
Is there any benefit later in the game to helping Jaya rather than Tong?

I payed off Jaya's Debt to Tong (5000 credits) and got the Praxis Kit Tong promised me (so basically I bought a Praxis Kit). I didn't expect an additional reward for helping Jaya, but I was rather disgusted that the game had no follow up with Jaya in any way. You don't even return to her room to tell her her debt is gone so you never hear a Thank you or anything; her character just disappears. Really bothered me.

None of the choices in the game mattered so that shouldn't come as a surprise.It happened for other side missions.

No, the game almost always acknowledges you for doing something. It's not the fact that I didn't get a reward, or that the choice mattered, its the fact that the game itself does not recognize your choice in anyway.

I'm trying to get to Taggart's dressing room stealthily but it is hard. I just went invisible and walked in once and noticed that there is a vent opening in the cieling, where is the other end of that vent? I have a save right before doing this cuz I feel like just walking in like Casper is a bit cheap.

Just finished the game, and I have to say I'm going to play it again soon. ;)

Anyway, I have a few questions that I hope someone here could answer for me when it comes to the plot:

The last battle in the game against Zhao Yun Ru, what exactly was she trying to accomplish? Well, I know she wanted to control everyone who has the biochip, but the Hyron computer rejected her... so why didn't she stop? Secondly, who were the 4 people in the Hyron computer and why were they calling Zhao 'mother'? Were these actually real people or just robots? At first I thought it was Megan Reed because in the cutscene before the battle Adam like tries to sooth the girl in the Hyron when he kneels at her. Finally, what killed Zhao? I thought she just wanted to control the biochipped augs but she was drawing/sucking in something that made here explode?

I don't know, that whole part just kinda through me for a loop and left me with a lot of loose ends. If someone could clear that whole thing up for me with details I'd really appreciate it.

While I eventually got around it and finished the game, anyone had that problem

in the end game you try to hack holding the pod-people inside the computer, the problem is that the turrets spot you from where you are and eventually break the glass.

The window of opportunity is very small and you really have only one shot at it

I am in Hengsha helping the prostitute on her second side quest. Is it better to throw the pimp off the balcony or simply plant drugs? Will one result in more money or repercussions later on?

This might be old news, but I found a secret area on the left side of the Derelict Row building in Detroit. On the outside of the building, there's a ladder and stairs that lead you to an opening into the building on the top floor. Inside is an empty hallway, but if you blow a hole in the wall with the crack, it will automatically knock out an enemy standing on the other side. His buddy will be alarmed try to find you. After taking him out, you will be standing in a secret closed in area that seems to serve no purpose. I couldn't find any more weak walls and no treasure of any sort. Why are these guys here and what were they guarding? How did they get in there?

Has anyone found out if there's anything more to this area?

There's a shaft leading down to one end of the DRB base. If you have the Icarus aug, you can jump down.

So I just started my pacifist playthrough, I'm in Detroit atm, doing "Cloak and Daggers".
Anyway, before I actually started the quest, I went to the MCB hideout in the apartment building, and knocked out the 2 guys guarding the apartment door to save time. Now, once I actually started the quest, I went back there to deal with double T, and noticed that the guys outside guarding the apartment, were now listed as dead. Basically, I knocked 2 guards out, went back later and saw they were dead, does this count as me killing them(Even though I didn't) and do I need to start again?

Figured this out myself: I found a Praxis kit, upgraded the lung augmentation, entered the basement via sewers, found the vent and heard the address from Tong's phone discussion.

After listening of her story i said Jaya, that i d speak to the barkeeper and then killed her to get her aug. Now when i visit Bobby: i give him the aug back, but i dont have any option to give him money. As result Bobby is angry and dont want to help me any more to find Tony.

Before that i had a bad conversation with 'Tony' and he wanted to tell me where hacker is hiding.

So now any possibility to find out in which pod "windmill" is hidding... (pod 302 is closed). And i ve used only quick saving.....ahhrrr.. :mad2:

Looks like the game is broken. :(

I'm at Omega Ranch facility, I talked to the three scientists and handled the GPL situation, now I'm supposed to take the elevator to face youknowwho but the nearby door which says "restricted area" is still closed.

Anything I should know? I hope I won't have to restart after such a long run.

Can anyone tell me if accidental environment kills will count against pacifist achievement? For example I did a non-lethal sucker punch take down and the npc landed in the sewer and drowned. I got XP awarded for a non-lethal take down but does anyone happen to know if that counts against the achievement?

Windmill Emailcode : I didn´t found one. But was it not a "Level 1 Hack" ? Should be possible also with less Hack-augs. Also check Post #40/41 in this Thread.

My BIG HACKING TIP : It´s not possible every time, but it can be very useful: Try to get the enemy/red-node and you will InstaWin AND get all the goodies (without aquiring the goddie-nodes)! So instead going for the goodies AND all the exitpoints you have only to reach ONE GOAL -> The Enemy-Node!

MY Question: in Seattle you have an apartement were you can "store" things on the ground. The will not disappear. Count this only for the apartement and if you drop things elsewhere they disappear? And is there
an apartement in the chinese city?

If you drop something anywhere it will always be there, and there is no apartment in Hengsha.


On your second trip to Hengsha there is a mission where a LIMB doctor asks you to take care of some rouge mercs. I found their first hideout and got the pocketsecretary off the dead body there that says they are going to the sewers, but my mission objective just keeps saying that I have to read the pocket secretary when I've done that like 30 times now. I went down into the sewers but all I found was a Harvester hideout.

Named NPC? (first hub spoiler)

We all know what it means, if they have an actual name they tend to serve a purpose so...

Did I miss a side quest in Detroit? Hooker named "Charlotte" (possibly a different spelling but name is correct) walking abound near the undercover cop?

Same bug? inconsistent design choice? for me....

Its the other district, down the large storm drain culvert type area, you find a manhole in that long ditch about half way down its length, go down into that sewer then getting close to them updates the mission.

Hmm, now i think about it, yes it sounds a bit like an exploit, maybe it would be better if you only win the hack but don´t get the goodies this way, but it is true, you can try it for yourself. The only problem: on some "hackmaps" you have only a oneway connection to the red hub, so you can´t reach it.

Hi Guys & Gals...I'm ultrastuck, and I'm frustrated and upset that I don't know what to do.

Here's my situation, I'm trying to meet Tong the leader in The Hive.

I pissed off the second bartender and he told me to get lost! I spoke to first bartender and he's having me shutdown three satalites by hacking them. i hacked the first two after huge trial and error, but the thrid and final hack i cannot complete. It's been hours and hours of me trying....and I'm at wit's end!

Somebody for the love of GOD HELP MEEEEEE!!! :mad2:

How else can I meet Tong?!
