Hello everyone!

Like Swen said on this forum:

"We're taking early access as an opportunity to try out new things, but at the same time we obviously don't want to frustrate our community when it comes to general balancing, which is why we are releasing this hotfix. We want to fix the most pressing issues - specifically the economy, the longevity of certain surfaces and the removal of some control spells from the early enemies."

Don't worry, your savegames are totally compatible!

Balancing and design changes
  • Prices for items have been lowered
  • Some early-level containers now have a higher chance to contain armor
  • Electrified surfaces and ice surfaces disappear after 3 turns
  • Enemies now have a small chance of dropping a gem or other precious item
  • AI does not use Sucker Punch at the early levels of the game anymore
  • Some traders in Fort Joy will now offer more cloth armor


Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue with general story progression
  • Fixed a crash introduced in patch 3.0.31.292. Was caught by players using feedback tool. Related to committing a crime.


Enjoy the hotfix. If you thought nothing was wrong anyway, you're probably going to enjoy Tactician mode in the full game smile

D.

Ooh, hotfixes, crunchy!

Er anyway, yeah, looks like some pretty good stuff in there, especially the better availability of armour.


J'aime le fromage.

I like the look of things, but do the electrified and ice surfaces VANISH, or just turn into regular water?

Keep questionable skill but dumb down AI, that is not very good style.

I was hoping you say save games are not compatible because I just finished my second run yesterday laugh

Economy feels alot more fair to lawful good parties. I struggled a fair bit to get everything I wanted, but it didn't feel overly punishing. Stealing feels more like a nice boon to parties with thieves rather than a necessity for everyone. I also feel pickpocketing is at the right strength considering you can only do it once per person. I think Bartering could be a tiny bit stronger, but thats just me.

Btw I'm super glad surface effects now evaporate after battle 'cos previously, I'd to clear them up using HammerTime, Rain, etc.

Hi ForkTong,

I'm not seeing the patch on the GOG version of the game. When will it be uploaded?


Every time there I run into trouble on the road, there is always a dwarf at the bottom of it. Don't they know how to drive above ground?

The hotfix is available through Galaxy (since yesterday). GOG posted the changelog earlier today, so hopefully the patch will be available soon.

Hmmm I already downloaded the patch version a few days ago. And yes, this is NOT the 2nd Feb version. I've no idea how to fix this problem though. Maybe reinstall or contact tech support for help?

I hope Tactician mode is going to have a cutthroat economy like before this hotfix (Or even more cutthroat, I enjoyed not being able to get everything I wanted and having to choose wisely)
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. smile

Raze,

Still nothing on Gog... are they normally this slow to push the updates out? Or is it just because of the weekend now? I really didn't like having steam for DOS:1 and that is why I chose GOG.

DrunkenTofu;

The latest version (3.0.33.118) is available through Galaxy, but there isn't a separate patch for it yet, to download through the website.


LightningLockey;

GOG doesn't usually release updates on weekends. Normally the patches (and updated full installers) follow within about a day of being available through Galaxy. I don't know what the delay is this time.

Raze: Hopefully the latest version will appear soon on the site. Or else, Lightning will just have to get Galaxy(good but not great app 'cos you can't limit dl speed).
