The update fixed "Missing quest Objectives/markers" and "Unable to investifate the bodies in Roaring Meg's Spring / the sewers due to them being missing" for me ! Thanks for keeping us informed. Glad it's fixed even if it took like 7 months, I'm finally able to finish the game.
Thanks for the update @DonFurinkazan! I'm glad to hear that you've been able to progress in "In the Absence of an Ealdorman" following the release of TU 1.2.2Official Response
after reaching the springs cave, where you have to investigate the cave, it doesn't register the progress of the investigation.
it also doesn't allow me anymore to investigate the bodies.
i can't progress in the game now. please help to fix this problem.
for me it's still not working, i have version 1.2.2 but i can't investigate the scene.
its stalled at 1/3
the hidden letter was registere in the progress, but the bodies remain unable to investigate further for the story.

I'd like to reach out to you all with an update. The development team have confirmed that they have deployed a fix in TU 1.3.1 for the issue wherein players were unable to complete the investigation. This issue should now be resolved.
This means that all ongoing issues with "The Absence of an Ealdorman" should now be resolved, and we will be marking this thread as such. If you are still encountering issues with "In the Absence of an Ealdorman" following TU 1.3.1, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can take a closer look. Please include a video that shows the following:

@ubi-borealis for information, because I left that game in quite some rage, what I did is :
- 1 : uninstall the game
- 2 : rage a little because that was my prefered AC so far (played each)
- 3 : wait 6 monthes
- 4 : received the AC Brotherhood of Venice kickstarter boardgame
- 5 : played it a lot
- 6 : got the AC virus again
- 7 : reinstall the game yesterday
- 8 : played through the whole Elderman mission, AND COMPLETE IT
So, this is a complete win for me. If that happened for some people, I'm not sure step 2-6 are mandatory, but this is fixed now !
Thank you, Ubisoft !
(edit : that boardgame is really really great, by the way )
