Can't interact with anything in town
Hey all,
I just started the 3rd chapter, 'Little did they sleep' and I can not interact with anything in the town. I can talk to Ubin and Mogr, but can't do anything in town. I simply have no buttons.
I checked a let's play video to confirm this and I am absolutely sure: I have no interaction buttons, I can't manage my Heroes, and I can't Leave town.
I already tried reinstalling and verifying the game cache, didn't help.

I do faintly remember having those buttons when I last left off at the beginning of this chapter last week, but I don't have them after today's Balance update.
Any help is appreciated.

I can reproduce this bug, when try to load a save from version 2.28.11.
Changing my Language will show the textmarks 'Heroes', 'Leave' etc. But you can't click them.

The reason for this bug looks like an change of naming for some game variables
Now several variables are using an underscore.
Format looks like 'chaperNumber_VariableName'

You can fix the error by editing your savegame as in the example below.
You can also reload your savegame in Frostvellr and make the transition to chapter 3. This should also work, but you propably have to replay some battles.

Save 2.28.11
... "globalVars": { "1 chapter_saved": "1", "1 chatvognir2": "1", "1 hakoncaravan": "1", "1 strand_has_started": "1", "1 strandmeadfight": "1", "1 strandroyalty": "1", "1 vedrcamped": "1", "1 vedrheroes": "1", "1 vedrleave": "1", "1 vedrmap": "1", "2 chapter_saved": "1", "2 frostcamped": "1", "2 frostheroes": "1", "2 frostmarket": "1", "2 frostoutside": "1", "2 hridgift": "1", "2 kidsfight": "1", "2 savedcart": "1", "2 skograrrived": "1", "2 skogrdivert": "1", "2 traveldrunkard2": "1", "2 traveldrunkard3": "1", "2 village1fight": "1", ...

Save 2.36.02
... "globalVars": { "1_chapter_saved": "1", "1_chatvognir2": "1", "1_hakoncaravan": "1", "1_strand_has_started": "1", "1_strandmeadfight": "1", "1_strandroyalty": "1", "1_vedrcamped": "1", "1_vedrheroes": "1", "1_vedrleave": "1", "1_vedrmap": "1", "2_chapter_saved": "1", "2_frostcamped": "1", "2_frostheroes": "1", "2_frostmarket": "1", "2_frostoutside": "1", "2_hridgift": "1", "2_kidsfight": "1", "2_savedcart": "1", "2_skograrrived": "1", "2_skogrdivert": "1", "2_traveldrunkard2": "1", "2_traveldrunkard3": "1", "2_village1fight": "1", ...

This change worked for my savegame.

Damned underscores...

Thanks for the work-around Gestaltzerfall; the hotfix shouldn't take long (I hope).

Thank you very much for the help!
I thought it didn't work for me at first because I chose "Resume" in the menu and the problem was still there, but I loaded my save at the beginning of chapter 3 and now it's working.
Thank you again!
