Just to be safe, I'm going to uninstall the game and reinstall with this patch. Am I correct in understanding that this new patch 1.42 also includes all the previous patches (so I only need to use one patch on the clean install)?

Larian - Thanks for being so patient with such demanding gamers! I know we all really appreciate the HUGE efforts you all take to get the problems fixed in a very timely manner!

Lynn, I have already restarted thrice now, and I only have 1.4 -> 1.41 savegames. Could you please clarify what are the bad things that will happen, later in the game if I continue ?

Hi,

If you install 1.42 nothing bad will happen, so I strongly recommand that you install 1.42 before you continue to play

Sorry if I'm being a bit slow but..

You write that for technical reasons it's not possible to completely upgrade savegames from 1.4 to 1.42 - some items on the ground might loose magical properties.

Is that *all* the problems with this approach? I mean, I have some 1.4 savegames that I would very much like to continue with (game was started as 1.4) and I don't think I have any important items lying around on the ground.

So if possible I would like to continue playing with 1.4 savegames but since I'm still in Act1 (although close to the end) I would rather restart the game now than getting some game-stopping problems later because of patch 1.4...

If I load my save games from 1.4, you say some items lying on the ground will lose their magical properties... do you mean items in the immediate vicinity of the player? All items that are on the ground everywhere in the game world, whether I put them there or not? Items from dead enemies? Thanks

so apart from loosing item stats on the ground, it should be safe to update from 1.4 to 1.42?

will it actually take effect without starting the game over (as new game..) so i cant continue with 1.4 made save?

Same question about the rather confusing note:

"There was a problem in patch 1.4 with the regeneration of the inventories of traders. Because of this problem after some time the game crashes. Patch 1.42 fixes this but because of a technical issue it's impossible to totally upgrade savegames made with version 1.4. As a result, some magical items which are lying on the ground might lose their properties when applying patch 1.42."

Does this mean objects I placed on the ground, objects in areas I have already been in, all objects on the ground for the remainder of the game or what?

Trying to decide whether to restart or not, and I'd rather not, but I certainly don't want to never have a magic object on the ground again.

I just installed the patch. All my saves were 1.41 and everything I had a problem with is now fixed. Wonderful job, I can even hear lots of music tracks i've never heard play before.

Battlefields are fully exitable in Act 4, stocks regenerate and so far (I keep respawning to check) I haven't seen any "Rat's tooth" in merchants inventories (which is meant to be full plate armor).

I can now finally tackle the final enemy with some potions, updated skills and some new armour.

Here's hoping everyone has as much success with their bugs. Great job.

Well my saved game from 1.4 was in the middle of fighting a death knight in act 1. With 1.41, when I loaded the game, the death knight had no sword and was trying to punch my character to death. Now in 1.42 (from the 1.4 save), he has his sword back but is still doing tiny crushing damage - i.e., from fists - even though he appears to be attacking with his sword. Even if the knight manages to hit me he does next to zero damage.

EDIT: a save and reload solved the problem

Merchants sell magical items to me in Battlefields. I just tested it and bought a magical full plate (+4strength +40 vitality) and saved. Item is still there when I reloaded.

Don't quote me on this and don't take my word for it but I think that with 1.42 you'll be fine nevermind coming from 1.4 or 1.41

aye but still

one of the biggets parts of such games for me is finding magical items myself, not just buying them of a merchant...
so i must really be assured that i can still go scavenge hunting

and if i choose not to patch, 1.4 > the game crashes after a while,is this a sure thing? cuz playing since 1.4 is out, and not having real problems infact...

Haha sorry, I totally missed your point originally.

Yeah I understand. So did 'on the floor' mean in chests/boxes/barrels too? I thought it meant dropped stuff, sigh. I'm a bit dense tonight, dont mind me.

well i actually ment drops of monsters as well...
+ boxes

sometimes monsters (or bosses) drop crazy magical items, would be kinda sad if they'd drop things without any stats now wouldnt it?

Loaded 1.42 then loaded a 1.4 savegame, still having the 'exiting battlefield' issue in Act4. None of my save games work in terms of defeating the act4 battle field bug. Well, I finished 60% of the game, not bad. Starting over is not an option as I would quickly get bored treading the same ground, I never play games twice for that reason. You got my cash this time Larian, it will not happen again...buyer beware I suppose.

Or should we even bother? I mean, I downloaded 1.41 last night - and on my 56k modem it took a good long while.... so now I have to download 23MB again tonight and then again on Monday?! Larian, is this the last patch for awhile?

Wow people complaining after not only a developer takes responsibility for the bugs and keeps in contact with the people that bought the game, but does their best to fix them. I've seen alot of games released full of bugs and no patch was released for a few months and not a word from the developer. Stop whining.

Another thing a lot of people will cry and whine that a release date is pushed back so than when its released faster but full of bugs they cry and whine more saying 'RUSHED OUT OF DOOR WANTED MY MONEY GOT IT THEYRE HAPPY THEY DONT CARE GAME PLAYS LIKE CRAP BUYER BEWARE!!!111'

Another thing people don't understand is that some problems are technically impossible to fix immediately and take alot of recoding to make sure this fix doesnt break that ect. These constant patches showthat Larian is trying to fix the game ASAP so people can play it without making them wait for a few months.

Larian is doing their best, chill out.
