I have posted this all over the place and so far no one has been able to help me..
anyways, this is regarding a glitch that I have seemed to run into with the Thieves Guild.
here it is:
any ideas?First some history on what I think could be causing this:
I own Oblivion on the xbox 360 and recently joined the Thieves Guild. Unlike what most people deal with, I was able to get the Diary or whatever to join the Guild before the other girl went and took it, so I didnt have to deal with stealing it from her.
Anyways, I believe this might of caused a glitch or problem in my game because when I went back and actually joined the Thieves Guild I was told that right away the Grey Fox wanted to talk to me. So it turns out (after checking a walkthrough book) that I ended up doing a couple of missions for the Grey Fox before I was supposed to be able to. I think I did two or three missions for the Grey Fox directly and went as far as earning the title of Master Thief. As I was waiting to do another mission for the Grey Fox I started doing the lower thieves guild missions for the other members and eventually noticed that I had run into some sort of glitch when I couldnt find any of my fences other then the first one I was assigned when I joined, even though it listed all of them as being open to me. I also was "promoted" by S'kivva to cat burgular and noticed that it had actually "demoted" me down instead.
So this is where I come into the problem.
I am currently doing the mission "Taking Care of Lex" and have been able to steal the list and now need to take it to the forger. The only problem with this is that although it directs me to the abandoned house to meet up with him, he is never there. No matter what time of the day or night that I go, he is not there. I have searched around the city and the castle as well and have not found him anywhere. It is getting really frustrating as this is technically the final mission I have to do before being able to do the final mission for the Grey Fox and becoming Guild Leader.
I am wondering if anyone might have any idea or maybe a solid answer as to why this is happening? I know the guy usually doesn't show up until the evenings, but he has yet to show up for me at all. I think I have gone 3 or 4 days (In the game) just looking and waiting out for him and he has yet to show. I don't know if this is because of the Grey Fox mission glitch or not, but I really am hoping to get this solved as it is rather frustrating.
I could actually go right now and do the final Grey Fox mission and become the Guild Leader, but I don't want to do that as Lex will still be in the waterfront and if I ever do finish this mission later on, then I will be demoted again and be unable to obtain the title of Guild Leader again.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Or what I can do to fix this? Again, its on 360 so unfortunately I can't just open console and put something in to cheat and get it fixed.
