Gamebreaking bug with hacking

Post by Funkerson » Fri Jan 25, 2019 9:52 pm

So I've been playing for around 50 hours now and everything was working fine until I got the 1337 hacking perk which caused all hard terminals to be blank when I try to hack them. Very hard and average terminals work fine as for the easy ones i have not yet tested them.

I installed everything with the installer so no mods and such. Thanks.

I know its not a fix, but you could hit them with the "unlock" command as a workaround.

It's a perk you get after hacking a certain number of terminals, not sure how much exactly probably 50. The correct name for the perk in the pip boy is 1337 h@ck3r. I've been trying to find that perk somwhere online to possibly turn it off via console but I can't find it mentioned anywhere.

Oh the challenge perk, I totally forgot we made that one. :lol:
I thought it was a level up perk, so I couldn't remember it. :oops:

The ID you want is 10007b65 (unless you altered TTW LO).

I quickly tested this issue but I can't reproduce it. I tried unlocking Megaton's Armory, Lucky's and Vault 112 Hard Terminals and I didn't have any problems. So my guess is that a mod might be conflicting somehow. :?

I don't have any mods or anything installed it's just a clean install with your installer, no mod managers or anything. If it helps it was happening in Broken Steel DLC and at the end of the DLC the quest bugged out and the Brotherhood didnt pick me up until i restarted the game. I will try it soon in NV and see what happens.

Just want to add that Daddy's Boy/Girl tweaks hacking too so maybe in combination with 1337 hacker it bugs out.

I just got the bug with the 1337 hacker perk. My science skill was 100+. I tested with science skill 1 and it fixed itself. So did more testing and found that with science 98 or higher, the terminals break. 100 hours, very modded save. If i remove the perk it fixes. Hope it helps.
