Lost my Ranger Stronghold for no reason: help!

    I am playing a solo ranger/cleric, and something odd happened.

    After the first quest for the ranger stronghold (where you go convince the guys to stop digging in the temple area), I went and did the Planar Prison quest. I then came back, and my stronghold had been stripped of me!

    I never gave the kids ale or swords, and I have kept my ranger status with neutral good an a rep of 20. I never got approached by Delon to start another quest.

    Does anyone know what might be the cause of this and how could I fix it?

    My only guess would be that while resting in the Planar Prison, Delon was unable to reach me and so I went over some sort of time limit or something.

    Is there any way to set the game with CLUA to think that I just finished the 1st quest still and will still have my cabin????

    THANKS

    I've encountered a bug in the past that made me lose the stronghold if I returned to the Umar Hills area before being summoned for each quest. Do you have a save before entering Umar Hills?

    Also, it is a timed stronghold, if you took more than a few days to do the planar sphere you may have lost it.

    Yeh I lost my Ranger stronghold one time, I took longer than 3 days after Delon found me again, saying orcs were invading.

    I had three days or I shouldn't come at all. I was in the middle of a quest, lol, might have even been the Planar sphere, point is I took longer than 3 days to get to the Umar Hills after Delon found me again, and thus I lost the stronghold.

    Dang. :( So does anybody know if there is a CLUA code to rectify this?

    I had quite a few good items (including Crom scroll!) packed in there too. :(

    Umm.....I'm pretty new at this (Elfen Lied can probably attest to this), but I'll have a crack at it - just make sure you *SAVE* before hand.

    Set the following variables outside of the Umar hills, and then move there afterwards (the area's script checks a couple of the following variables)....and maybe pause the game while entering them.

    CLUAConsole:SetGlobal("RangerProtector","GLOBAL",2)

    ...sets the ranger stronghold to what it was when you collect your reward from Mairyn after killing the humans who are destroying the forest.

    SetGlobalTimer("OgronAssault","GLOBAL",FOUR_DAYS)
    ...another global set by Mairyn at the same time - this is to make Delon talk to you in a days time or something (...i think - the variable gets set to THREE_DAYS after Delon finds you)

    The last one I'm really not that sure about
    CLUAConsole:SetGlobal("DeactivateCabin","AR1100",1)
    I *think* will open the cabin, but I'm having quite a bit of trouble finding Minister Lloid's .cre and dialogue files to confirm it. If this doesn't work try 0 instead of 1.
    A value of 2 will cause "TriggerActivation("LostCabin",TRUE)" upon entering the umar hills, which I don't think is desired.

    Goodluck - I hope this works

    Minister Lloyd I think is labeled as UHMAY01. least that's what his dialogs are under in the Infinity Explorer.

    Thank Elfen Lied!
    That guy must have a million lines of dialogue or something - I couldn't find any reference to the "DeactivateCabin" global, so I'm beginning to think that "0" might be the more promising value....or that it's set by the area or something.
