I am working my way through The Dig for the 2nd time, and I’ve cleared all the tiles except the last one. After taking a pretty serious beating (I hate Lycelot Alpha Trackers with a passion), I felt that I wanted to head back to Harm’s Way and brew some more potions. I go the teleporter pad one room back, hit E, select the teleport pad by the entrance… and nothing happens. A bit stumped, I try again. Same results. Now I decide to jus walk back, but I’m at the bottom of an elevator shaft, and now nothing responds to me pressing E near it, including the button that summons the elevator out of here. Lovely.
I feel your pain when it comes to the Alpha Trackers. Those fuckers can take you out completely even at full health. Infuriating.
