Hi, I'm on the "How to HQ" quest and when I have to meet the staff, Lupe talks and then nothing.
What should I do? Thanks for your answer

Regarding long save times..I upgraded all the required files but haven’t downloaded ss2 chapter2 yet.
I wanted to see how stable my game was before doing so.
my saves usually are instant to a 30 seconds. Now they are taking several minutes even in home plate.
so, the problem for me must be in the new version of workshop framework or ss2 chapter one.
‘Playing on a pc with save games to a ssd partition with lot’s of space.

yes same here on the updating ss2 chapter one and workshop framework, just on xbox! I couldn't fit chapter 2 in my load order anyway unfortunately with xbox size limitations. thanks for bringing this up—i dont know why i didnt consider the workshop framework update also causing issue

Something else I've found (pre-Chapter 2):

Did you save and exit? Ready to play again now? Do you get a crash as soon as your latest save file loads? Bring up a slightly older save file and load that. If it loads successfully, wait a moment and then load the desired save file.

No idea why, but it's helped me load saves that I couldn't load directly from the main menu. Having a recent save in a small cell like Home Plate helps, like described above.
I think I got the same problem. Can't reload with F5= CTD. Can't open FO4 and load the last save or any saved with Chapter 2 installed= CTD.

If I deactivate Chapter 2, I can load normaly.
A game saved with no CH2, can be loaded again with the mod on in NMM, but after a save the "impossible load" attacks again.

I realised a SS2 Ch1 is needed, so I'll do and try. I hope now the saved game can load normally for God Sake!

This is a fairly common Creation Engine problem - you can't always install new mods or update mods on an existing game. The state of the save can end up in such a way that adding/changing things makes it unstable.

Sometimes, if you play for a while, and save somewhere different - such as in an interior cell or a city like DC or GN, then try the install/update again and it might work that time as your save file will be in a different state.

Many folks have said going to Home Base, saving / loading there helps alot.

Are you see if you got SS2 (ch1) and Workshop Frame updated? That was my problem with the CTDs

Similar but different issue here on PC. Haven't noticed any save lagging but fast travel is killing me. Freezes after you select a destination. By the time it unfreezes the camera is doing the bored circle around you. Lol
Also I updated all the files but still getting the 999 storage limit message. Only seen it once on each restart though so far.
Love the mod! Love the story! Thanks!

I have the same problem: when chap 2 is "enabled" in Vortex, any saved games (manual or quicksave) cause CTD. I tried creating a new game from scratch but I get the same CTD when I die to the Raiders who kidnap your settlers in the story line of Chap 1. When I disable Chap 2 everything runs fine.

I updated WF yesterday aswell.

Have you try manual installation? Sometimes the mod managers don't do it right...

I have my pc game through Steam, is there a way to load it separately without buying it again? Or a best way to edit files with steam if needed?
I dunno how to do that. For "reinstall" I mean reinstall the mod, not the game itself.

You forgot to mention that NMM stands for Nexus Mod Manager... you won't believe how many folks here on Steam just don't know what wich short stand for.

@LordTrog
Regarding reinstall... on Steam just removing and re downloading the Games files won't cost anything.
As long as the Game is in your Library you can remove and install it as much as you like... if you are a true masochist you can do it even multiple times a Day.
Only problematic thing is when you have a low Bandwith.

The Jake's Private frequency quest is still there even after I finish my chapter 2 playthrough, is that a bug?
