=> I activated the “Activating Character Class System” Quest and selected Marksman. This quest completed and then prompted me with another quest to level up my Marksman level. Before I could accept this 2nd quest the game lost connection to the server. Now I am unable to locate this 2nd quest and instead am stuck with the “Activating Character Class System” quest completed.
Player(s) with issue? (steam name)
=> Dr Chau
Server? (EU or NA or RE)
When did it happen? (Use server time: type ingame cb:time)
=> 29 September 2021, unknown exact time
Further checking: It appears I don’t actually have the Marksman class assigned, as I am getting no bonuses.
I can Re-Activate the “Activating Character Class System” Quest again and it pops up the Class Window that says I am a Marksman, but then says I have no benefits from being a marksman. I can not progress to the next quest, it just allows me to quit.
Thanks for the reply. I will reach out to Vermillion for more information on the cause of the problem.
My thoughts were as server admins you could possibly reset progress in that quest or bring me back to the beginning, but I realize it is almost always more complicated than that. I’ll update this thread if I receive more information.
Well, you are absolute right. As Server Owner I can edit almost everything along your way.
The question is: is this maintainable and doable?
With thousands of dialogue variables by now, with thousands players by now, this isn’t possible, sorry.
The creator of such quests needs to fix it in their core.
Updating the thread with more info from Discord, in case it helps in the future:

Yes, i’ve seen the report.
There’s no fix or even a possible fix. Since what happened to you will happen to any and every rewarded mission in the game, since it’s a limitation of the PDA system coupled with a bug where rewarded chapters aren’t being made visible (There’s an intermediary step so that this doesn’t happen, but you broke in the middle of the intermediary step).
If you can get an admin to forcibly activate the mission for you, that would fix it. But I don’t know if that’s even possible.

I believe I am stuck one step before your screenshot.
I completed quest in my screenshot by selecting Marksman. Then it pops up a new window to activate the quest you have and that was where I got disconnected. If I select the “Character CLass System” White text I can activate that mission again, but all it does is say: You are a Marksman, bonuses are 0, and allows me to exit. It doesn’t prompt for that next quest again.
Thanks for all your time looking into this issue.
Here is a screenshot of my PDA:

Reply from RexXxuS:
Thanks. So the bad news is that I can’t fix it for you. This is some internal PDA data mixed with already saved Dialogue variables.
The good news is that @Vermillion can fix it by implementing another PDA chapter activation for that intermediate chapter together with a new Dialogue option to forcefully (fallback) start the next mission.
I can show how when needed.
