Any way to force the Robin encounter?
I have walked the earth for ages now and no Robin
I haven't actually played 8.0.0 NC or 8.0.1 NC to test whether I am able to get the special random encounter with Robin of Locksley.
The following is from the game guide & walkthrough sticky thread:

Is it 29 days after you first speak with wilfrick?
Any other thing that needs to be done, i own the castle.
I had problems with fear of ghost but i set it as done in the editor maybe i just have a faulty game
Can you post the savegame?
Reinstalled and starting over so no savegame survived.
It's doesn't really matter with the robin encounter as the main purpose of the playthrough was the new earthtemplestuff.
But thanks anyway
Is there any way to force this encounter. I am like 10 days past when the game.global_vars said the encounter would happen. It said it would be 26 days. I ran back and forth from hommlet to nulb about 100 times because I didnt want to rest past the day it was triggered.
Also, I'd appreciate if you could post the save so I can see what went wrong - I thought I had it bulletproofed already...
Unfortunately, it was my 8 year old kids game, and he has since overwrote his 5 saves with a new evil party he designed. I wont even be able to test if your quick fix will work. Thanks for the info, if he runs into again with this game, I will be sure to snag one of his saves for you, and test the game.encounter_queue.append(3434) out. Thanks again :thumbsup:
I had the same problem with 8.0.1, but not with 8.0.0.
After several hundreds days of waiting and travelling game.global_vars showed 28.
I checked several saves. In all of them the value of game.global_vars was 28.
I have the same problem: No Robin no matter how often I sleep. Tried the console for the first time but couldn't do it. Can't close console after enter code. Maybe because of different console (German) ?
Edit: Ok, managed to close console (had to hit keys for a couple of times) but still no Robin encounter. Tryed to travel for about 30-40 times.
I have another game with the same problem, would you like the save?
Yes, please post it.
Here ya go, let me know if it works. :thumbsup:
Thanks. For some reason it seems Wilfrick's script randomly halts execution for no apparent reason (i.e. it executes the game.global_vars = ... command, but not the commands that follow it... sometimes. :shrug
I've added some bulletproofing in Wilfrick's dialogue - his dlg script will now continually re-attempt to schedule until successful. That is to say, if you don't get the encounter, try talking to him again, it should set things in motion (but you'll probably have to wait the period specified in  again*).
* to be clear, talking to him again won't RESET the timer, it will just set it if it hasn't been set already.
Wow, that was fast, Thank You :thumbsup:
