Has anyone else encountered the bug with keeping Dante in your party after completing Praetor's quest in Dernholm? It's been close to ten years since I last played, but I recall there used to be a dialogue option where you don't give him credit for the quest, allowing you to keep him in your party. Now, though, I don't get that option, and can't keep him after completing the quest.
A second issue is that even if I decide not to complete the quest, I can't make him wait for me anymore, as I don't get the dialogue option to have him rejoin my party.
I have the UAP-091225, the high-quality town maps, the extra animations, and the high-res graphics mods installed.
