One important thing - my understanding is that this update will not work with your current saves. We should have some official messaging for it once we have everything in place.
What saves? :P

In all seriousness, thank you so much for communicating with us and to the team for working on it!

Any update on the patch? I know it's probably a low priority, but you're going to be getting a lot more people playing now that the game pass is active. Most are just going to think it's broken and uninstall.

We poked Microsoft about it for an ETA. Not sure yet. Will update if/when I hear something.

Saw the update on the main site, as well. Thanks for continuing to support the game. I've been wanting to play this ever since I missed the kickstarter.

Thanks for the info - but any chance this update will finally hit all distribution stores (GOG, Steam) and all platforms (Linux, Mac) ?

I wasn't a backer of Wasteland 2 (only because I didn't heard about the game in time), so I can't complain much personally, but I got Wasteland 2 as part as my (rather high-tiers) TTON backing, and I would like to be able to play with all the fixes on my GOG/Linux version, thanks !

The issues being addressed only affect the Microsoft Store version. Steam and GOG remain unchanged.

Hi. So I see there is a new version of the game on the store:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/waste ... FBVD678GR3

However, there is one huge issue with this: the new version has no achievement support. Do you know why this was the solution? Now I have the old version which was unplayable sitting on my Gamertag at 60/1000 Gamerscore, and it's been completely removed for play. The old version can still be viewed here:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/waste ... blggh6gmln

Can you please talk to the team and find a way to merge the two versions so that the new version which is supposedly functional (have not tried yet) is linked to the achievement list from the old version so we can complete the game?

Thank you.

I hate to be that guy who keeps bumping the same thread, but could someone address the above issue? The achievement community would really appreciate the old version that still has achievements receiving the new, working version of the game. Or somehow merge the two versions so only one exists that has achievements and works. Thank you.

Edit: Also since the new version doesn't include achievements, I wonder if the build would even have a fix for the broken "Scavenger" achievement in it? That was a big part of the original ask when this thread was created. Thanks again.

IDK, maybe they are only focused on their new Bard's Tale release and forgot about us

Hi there! We are two months removed from the last update of "it's being looked into."

Do we know if something will be done, and if so, specifically what the fix will be? As I mentioned before, the ideal solution would be a merge of the existing achievement list into the fixed version of the game rather than creating a new achievement list. I'd hate to have an achievement list on my Gamertag that I couldn't complete due to the issues of the old version of the game.

I'm guessing they don't feel a need to rush the fix out until around the time Wasteland 3 comes out in a few months. If its still not fixed by then, that would be quite embarrassing.

I was also gonna say that the save game fix for the steam version of the game does not work for this version because I cannot find the save files anywhere, even the ones that do show up in game (which only take me to the beginning of the game), nor can i find the TOC file.

Make sure your apps and games have the latest updates. Here’s how:

On the taskbar, select Microsoft Store to open it.
If you don't see Microsoft Store on the taskbar, it might have been unpinned. Here's how to find it: In the search box on the taskbar, enter Microsoft Store, then select it from the list.
After you've opened Microsoft Store, select More > Downloads and updates > Get updates.
For help with updates, see Fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store.
For help with your app and game purchases, see Manage your purchases from the Microsoft Store.
Get updates from Microsoft Store
