I let a friend play my game a few weeks ago and he made all my special points at 10 and I beat Lonesome Road and when you return to the mojave you must add a special point. Well all of mine are at 10 and it gives me no options so change it. I cant accept the only button I can choose is reset. I tried to set one of my specials at a 9 but it stayed at 10. Im stuck! Anyone have a solution? Im going to kick his ass if I cant go any farther.
You should get your friend to change it back or help you out if hes good with modding. I also had the same problem with a maxed out special at the end of lonesome road. Im playing on Xbox and had to use my PC to mod my file for this occation. I lowered 1 special point, then the dead mans burden perk replaced it putting it back to 10, and everythings fine now. I used 3 different programs to it though. Xplorer, Modio, and a Hex editor. Its kind of complicated and hard to do becuase you have to know what file to look for in Xplorer and what number to change in the Hex editor. Modio is used to rehash and resign. I fell like the Dead mans burden perk is big FUCK YOU to modders from the developers. Especailly since it comes in the form of a perk. It Shouldn't be mandatory, thats how you know the developers did this intentially.--Robandbig 11:16, September 21, 2011 (UTC)
What do you need to edit in the hex editor? I have exactly the same problem. I know the rest, just what line if you would help, Thanks. Xarxes 18:35, October 10, 2011 (UTC)
This is what happens when you cheat. ReapTheChaos 19:51, October 10, 2011 (UTC)
OP are you on PC? If so "setspecialpoints 10" will let you reduce your special points "modpca" doesn't let you reduce specials which sounds like what you tried to do, then you can add all but one back up to 10 and you'll be fine, that's what I did.

I think that after logging 100+ hours gives people a right to on a character they don't plan on spending anymore than 20 on haha bit if anyone knows a fix for xbox that would be great. Xarxes 14:12, October 12, 2011 (UTC)
I found an xbox 360 modded save that is compatible with ALL DLCs, but you must have ALL of them.

when that poped up on me after i bombed the leagon i used the command CloseAllMenus worked for me ..macisland22
Skullsies- I found a work around for xbox 360. All you have to do is fast travel right after the final cut scene. If for some odd reason that does not work, use the big mountain transportalponder if you have it. Dont hesitate either, if you wait too long after the cut scene, the achievement will pop and the screen for adding the stat will open.

@ReaptheChaos So what if he cheated? I've beaten fallout many times over, what of it if he decided to play a super op play through? Also, for anyone dealing with this bug on PC - type CloseAllMenus into the console, that fixes it. - Vecordia
