I played a few rounds with the Outcast Engineer yesterday, where everything seemed to be in order. I had turned of the mods I usually use, due to “Vermintide Mod Framework” telling me it was “Unsanctioned”.

Today I tried turning on the mods I normally use again and the game promtly crashed when I tried to open Okri’s Book. With the following error message:

GUID: 6cde896d-0bdd-4781-ae46-a3e8f722a128

Log File:

Info Type:

[Script Error]: …/views/hero_view/states/hero_view_state_achievements.lua:1893: attempt to index field ‘dlc_lock_hotspot’ (a nil value)

Mods I use (all should be Sanctioned):

  • Friendly Fire Indicator
  • Penlight Lua Libraries
  • Vermintide Mod Framework
  • Persistent Ammo Counter
  • Countries in Lobby Browser
  • Killfeed Tweaks
  • UI Improvements
  • Numeric UI
  • Skip Intro

So something seems to point towards one of the mods somehow deleting or changing a file. I will try again after I have used Steams “Verify integrity of game files” function.


After validating the files Steam found an error in one file and redownloaded it. But opening the book still made the game crash with the same error. Still playing without mods here, I really shouldn’t have turned them on…

Thanks for the report. This is a known bug with the Engineer release, and a fix should be coming soon! For the time being please avoid the quest book.

I tried verifying again and it found nothing, then I restarted the client and turned of “Penlight Lua Libraries” and “Killfeed Tweaks” (dependent on the Penlight) and now I can both play and use Okri’s Book :smiley:
