New patch?

Post by Insolentius » March 28th, 2017, 9:09 am

Just received a ~200MB update. Is this the long-awaited bug-fix update?

First impressions...

Pros

- the performance has been significantly improved
- camera scrolling feels very responsive and fast

Cons

- this is still an obnoxious problem - viewtopic.php?f=47&t=17271&p=184838 (you didn't remove (or at least reduce) the 'whoosh' sound effect when initiating dialogue)

This one is in our bug tracker. Our focus for this patch was primarily to fix as many critical issues as we could, and also optimize performance, particularly for consoles (but also lower-spec PC systems).

With the new patch I cannot get past the opening crisis. On PC obviously, since patch hasn't hit consoles yet. Explained what's happening in the patch notes thread as well: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=17672

Wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

Any plans on when you´ll add more options to the graphics menu? HigherShadowQuality, a ResolutionScaleSlider and one to select higher TextureQuality would be easy things to start with.

Someone with 1.0.2 patch please start a new game and tell me if you can get past first crisis encounter with sorrow. I've tried 3 times and the sorrow never ends his turn, forcing me to quit.

Is this in the Calm at the start of the game?
Yes.

Are these patches or file replacements?
(Meaning are they difference tables, with just the changes to make to the installed files; or are they complete updated replacements for files.)
If it's the latter, why is that ~exactly?

The latest patch still hasn't fixed this. The sound effect gets progressively louder the longer you play. It ends up being deafening.

I had this game on ice for nearly four months. As it stands, I'll never play it. :cry:

Game was released less than 3 months ago. Weird.

I feel your pain though as that sound is really annoying. I'm surprised it made it into the initial release.

Time flies. :lol:

Somehow I remembered first playing the game in late January.

I did not have that problem. Sorry.
