San d'Oria Mission The Rescue Drill not working

Post by Drinkie » Sun Nov 27, 2016 3:23 am

As this is what i shall refer to as a "Rank-Up" quest i thought i would mention that it cannot be completed or even progressed once it's started i did see somewhere to open up Navicat or in my case HeidiSQL and go into "Char_var" and change the "Mission" value however there isn't one there only "charid" "varname" and "value"

it works and has been working for quite a long time, you have missed an npc or are multiboxing causing the var to not be set when talking to the npc. A variable named "MissionStatus" will have a value set each time after speaking with the correct NPCs.

Multi boxing is common FFXI slang for running multiple characters, and in the context of private servers additionally implies "on the same connection" at any point during any of said characters sessions. If you only had one character on, you weren't so don't worry about that and just recheck the NPCs.

All missions start out with their status at zero, and when you go to the next NPC/cut scene event/whatever it will go up, at which point you will see a variable (the varname column) set (the exact name is base don mission line - for the 3 nations, is it "MissionStatus") with a non zero number assigned to it (value column).


Minor note: You should never see a blank varname nor a value of zero set in that table (the server treats any var not set as zero, and setting it to zero triggers its removal).
