Yes, I’m playing this game normally, and as for the “restart the game from save file”, that was when I commented that I didn’t know what to do after beating Serena and then realized I broke the game because I did the vagabonds’ quest first before talking to her, and then deleted my newer saves and restarted using an old save from before I defeated Serena. Yes, the caches were all dug up until I reached the floating island, and I absolutely did not dig up the caches myself. I am using version 1_0b.
Got it. This should be the case as I already mentioned, I’ll look into it but can’t give an estimated date since Ouro’s development consumes most of my time.
Also, starting vagabond’s questline shouldn’t be critical in any way. Did you try to talk with Ayane on that step? Perhaps it’s a case of a non-so-clear help hint…
What happened was I talked to the vagabonds because I happened to go into their camp, and then when Serena came back I talked to them one last time before I could talk to Serena about their case, so Serena ended up helping me clear them before I got to finish the main quest which is to talk to her about how she was doing, so that probably broke something in the system, other than that i have no idea.
