Add me to the list. I come back to the game after almost a year off and I get a game-breaking bug like this; not the kind of welcome home I was expecting.
I'm stuck on "Night of the Comet" at the point that you beam down to Drozana Station. After forming/selecting my away team, the game boots me to the login screen with "Cannot Transfer Character." Starting in normal or safe mode has no effect.
I've been having this issue for 3 days as well! Started with Traelus System and now when ever it wants on any mission!
Cryptic... Honestly I understand the issue, seen it for a few years now, it's called job security. all PWE game are plagued with fix 1 bug create 3 to replace it! DON'T continue down the path of the dark side! retain your pride in the game you created!! So Sad....
Same issue during "Night of the Comet" when trying to transfer to Drozana Station in the past. I'm not sure if it's important but doing it on KDF.
Couldn't transfer character
EDIT: So I just tried something... I removed all my BoFFs and replaced them with security. Though when I selected continue from the sector map it added the BoFFs back in, it allowed me to continue. Prior I had tried Safe, and Normal logins. I even restarted the game client and none of that worked. To anyone else having this problem give that a try. If that does have something to do with it, it could help the Devs narrow down the cause.
Edit 2: Nevermind that thoroughly bugged the mission and the npcs wouldn't spawn. That completely shut down the mission as I was unable to progress. So I beamed out and tried to continue. I'm back to "Couldn't transfer character". Also tried dropping/restarting mission. Getting "Couldn't transfer character" at exact same point still.
I got this on my KDF toon tonight. I'm trying to do Cold case and I keep getting the error message on the second planet in the mission. It ****es me off 'cause I wanted the 3 piece set and now I can't get the mission done.
