Cemetery Glitch? (Spoilers just in case?)
I just got through a fairly annoying battle in the cemetery and was glad to be rid of it. When I went to interrogate the Captain, I can't. I click on the golden speech box and nothing. I step all around him, reloaded and tried again but I can't speak to him at all. He fell next to a bit of cover and I feel like that might have something to do with it. Should I tell the developers? Will I have to start that mission over? (What a disheartening thought.)

Thank you for reporting this issue. It has been logged in our bug tracking software. Our testers have discovered a work around for this issue for the time being. Play the game as normal, however when the man in the suit has been killed/downed do NOT save the game from that point onwards. You should be able to finish the level and be able to talk to the man in the suit when free move mode is triggered.

Thanks for the advice. I did go back rewind to an earlier save and do the fight over so I can't check it but I will keep it in mind in the future. Much appreciated!

I'm just curious - when will this Issue be fixed and will this patch be released for Linux at the same time? There're also some issues with hiring Coyote (Shannons on my list, but Coyote's missing).
Besides that: You did an awsome piece of work here! The game runs (except that cemetery thing) great and I enjoy it alot. Can't wait to play Dragonfall and see the Berlin of the future (since I lived there a couple of years)

Keep on the good work!

Ran in to this bug also....(after buying a nice set of weapons I was not able to use...going into this quest with my paws and powers)...final killed everything after multiple trys only for it to bug out with combat round not ending) No interagation possible. On a side not perhaps make the weapon icon look greyed out if it is not useable at current level)
UPDATE: Tried playing from before I killed the guy in the suit and did not save afterwards. Still was not able to interogate him after everything else was dead. I guess I will need to start from the very begining of the battle and see how that goes. Very frustrating.

I just ran into this problem as well. Loaded a save (mid-battle) and played through the rest of the battle. No dice-- still couldn't talk to the Captain. Please let us know if there are any other workarounds... thanks.

Major...I also had to do the entire battle without saving. I did not save after killing the team leader guy in the suit but that also produduced the same bug. Said screw it and started the whole battle from scratch. If the team leader was dead at mid battle when you played throught the rest of the battle that will certainly cause the bug.

I have the same problem... So now I have to replay that mission? Or is there and update on the way?

Also had the bug, my workaround was to kill him at his starting position. Afterwards it didn't matter that I saved and reloaded a few times.

Yeah that didn't work.

It is now July, no fix in sight. I am stuck on this part of the game because of it, and no in-game warning that the dialogue "choices" and non-combat skills are nearly worthless makes my conversationalist decker struggle through this each try. Please fix, this game is almost a year old already!

Implement a respec option, too, since non-combat builds are irrelevant and the dialogue "choices" do not actually matter; there is not enough depth to the game to warrant these superfluous point-wasting options which players expecting depth choose to take (players like myself).

Same problem. Not sure I have the patience to replay this section. This might be where i decide to drop the game unfortunately. Just give us a console command or something to jump to the next mission.

Same issue here.

Same issue here. I'm stuck at this point in the game.
