Hello!

Before we take a bit of a Christmas holiday, we'd like to leave you with at least one update. Don't worry, we're still around, reading and all, we're just not at the office during the holidays. We'll be back right after New Year, after a good rest, full of energy!

Please do note that your savegames are NOT compatible. Even though you may still be able to load them, weird things will happen. Please do not try loading them, it'll just waste your time. Also please do not load them and then report "weird things" as they may be due to loading old savegames.

On to the changelog! The following things were done:

- Fixed SupportTool to correctly upload crash reports
- Fixed Sheath/Unsheath states
- Quest log gets more updates now
- NPCs react to vandalism correctly
- Changed lifetime for melting ice, evaporating water (steam clouds)
- Added new mouse cursors
- Armour / gloves / boots can be customized in character creation
- Can switch between characters during character creation
- Character portraits are no longer gone after a regionswap
- Better sight-checks for generic behaviours
- Alignment fixes for generic behaviours
- The Rush Attack skill will not end inside a character anymore
- Game camera can be rotated more
- Attitude is no longer lowered for allies after combat
- Added more tutorial messages
- Added more tooltips and skill descriptions
- Fixed crash when going back to main menu from the character creation screen
- Fixed multiple stability problems, small and large
- Fixes and changes to treasure generation and item generation
- Several story fixes

Cheers and have a good one!

Very nice change-list, thanks a lot to the guys at Larian for putting this out before xmas.

Hopefully with some of the more glaring problems fixed, we'll see some more useful feedback in this forum rather than just having a lot of people commenting on the same few things that the devs probably already know about... (not saying that all the feedback has been like this, and I guess people will post their first impressions along these lines before getting into the more detailed stuff so it should improve over time anyways)

Plan to continue my testing as soon as I get enough free time...

EDIT: Went to listen to the menu music mentioned in the posts above - it's really awesome. It somehow reminds me of Joe Hisaishi's music, although that may just be as I'm a massive Studio Ghibli fan xD

Yeah, it might be a good idea to start a new thread for 1.0.45 feedback and try to keep it to things yet undiscovered or newly introduced.

They probably had some of that done already, just not properly implemented into the build that got originally - not that that's a bad thing though!

I had no issues starting a new game with the first version but now when I try to start a new game it hangs and then (almost) dies - that was totally bizare; i put it in the background then brought it to the foreground and 5 minutes later it started the creation process !

This is great now I can just click to move and don't have to hold the button down !

I had to wait a solid 4 minutes too, when starting a new game. The music keeps on playing though, so I suppose it's just an optimization issue.

When you run the game, the version information is shown in the upper right hand corner of the screen. As this topic's title suggests, latest version is alpha 1.0.45 at the time of writing.
