I'm rather peeved.
I was doing well. I just got back from the penultimate Tayla mission and I was talking to her about the final one...
I clicked by accident mid-conversation. The conversation stopped but the accept/reject buttons stayed, and I was returned to the bar screen. I clicked on accept and the conversation continued, but the screen remained on the bar screen. Then I clicked on Tayla again and she asked me why I've not made the run yet.
So I go out to do the run and I get attacked by another Privateer -- one with a buttload of ships. And some conversations come in over the comms but it's all weird. Then I get absolutely obliterated and I die.
It turns out that the mission has been accepted twice. It's in my mission register twice. When I leave the pirate base, the other privateer guy is there twice, as is every single one of his ships. They all shoot at me and I'm sucking void within a minute.
Now, I'm not sure what respawning is meant to do, but one time I respawned and one of the Centurions was bright red and damaged, and the other one was flying around on his own. I thought I'd managed it when I killed the second version of him too, but when I left the asteroid field both privateers and their posses started on me again and I was pwned.
So I'm gonna have to start again. If anyone can supply me with an invincibility cheat just to get out of this bind, I'd be very grateful, though. Thanks.
