[Act V] Stuck after killing Koshchey

Are you sure you've done all the quests the feed this particular quest ? got a lot of open entries in your journal ? that information would help determine what went wrong.
I don't know what to tell you other than reload to before the fight. Hopefully you didn't find that battle too difficult.

As for the quests I have "Sweet Revenge" with the phase "Sacrifice". The other quests are "Witchers' Secrets" at "Get Azar Javed" phase, Identity at "Love" phase, "Her Highness the Striga" at "Crime
and punishment", "Berengar's Secret" at "The Parting". As for important items I have Ostrit's Journal, Experiment Notes which are the only important items till now I think. I use version 1.2 btw.

let's make sure we are talking about the same two doors (just in case). the door into the koshchey crypt is directly opposite the door out. Is that the case for you ? sorry if it seems silly, but without seeing, i have to ask these questions.
also, have you looted the koshchey's corpse yet ?

Of course I can't guarantee it, but it might be worth the try ;)

Either of the two metal gates in this room is what you mean yes?
If so sounds like a bug to me, they shouldn't ever be locked.
There is only one locked door I know of inside the Catacombs, at the first room with all the monsters.

Oh and btw I also updated it to 1.3 and started from the autosave when you first enter the Catacombs but it still happens :(

The only thought that did occur to me would only help if you could go back the way you came, but you said both doors are locked .... (and yes, M.R.'s shot with the bruxa is a very special case where he managed to charm her in another chamber and lure her into the koshchey's crypt to help him)
... so IF you could get out one door (even the one you came in), the catacombs form a big circular area, so you might be able to go around in the other direction. Which path (neutral / order / scoia'tael) are you following ? that does affect which doors are locked and which are not

i'll keep pondering your predicament, but for now, you have me stumped ... maybe ST_Ghost has some ideas ;)

What have I done to deserve this? ::) ;D
Well, uh, if you tried all the doors and they are locked, then you are stuck. You mentioned patching up to 1.3 recently, but this does not affect the current place you are in. You'd have to restart the act (i.e. load your last Act IV savegame) for it to take effect.
Actually, have you tried a save from before you entered the Old Manor area? That would likely fix it hopefully if there was just a bad trigger somewhere. Make sure you pick up everything from DeWett's corpse too.

I have no idea what could be causing this except some script refusing to fire.
Hmmm how smooth is your gameplay before, during and after fighting the koshchey?

The more you describe your problem and other strangeness, the more it seems to be related to your journal ... perhaps it has become corrupt ? sadly, I have no idea what you could do about that.
One other possibility (not for fixing the problem, but in order to finish the game) is to get someone else's saved game from that point in the game. I have lots of saved games (but you may be disappointed in my gaming ability!). I'm on XP (SP3 and have all the patches applied) -- but i may or may not have the correct path for you
let me know

As for the contract things, those are not of consequence. What I usually do is pick contracts up, read them, then drop them, because you do not need to carry them around.
Same thing with moonblade aerondight, I had no problems with that...

For now I'd like to try a few more times but if it's still not possible I'd be glad to try out your saves then.
I have a few more ideas I wanna try. For example there was a conversation with Dandilion which updates Sweet Revenge quest, I first tried to talk to him about it right before the end of Act 4 during the village hostage part but I didn't get any answers from him.
Although I later talked to him before entering the boat which updated the quest, maybe if I talk to him after reaching the Dike (I saw it on a walkthrough while I was trying to find out if I did anything wrong which suggested I do it in Act 5) maybe it may change something.
Although the conversation option isn't blue like the ones you chose the first time which might mean it's corrupted the first time I tried it on the village, it's still worth a try I think.
If I still fail again I'd be happy to use your save games if it's ok with you. Even if there isn't a save which are %100 my own choices, it's better then staying like this after playing this much.
Also I'm sure you gaming ability is a lot better then a first timer like me ;D.
