Is anyone playing on Stadia? I just tried to access it, and the version number has indeed updated.

However, once I get to the main menu, the screen won't take input from the touchscreen and my cursor is missing!!! The cursor changes to the gauntlet while the game is loading, but promptly vanishes as soon as I 'press any key to continue.'

Is anyone else having this issue? It's obviously a major problem.

I also play on Stadia but won't be able to check for a few hours.

Can you try closing your game and then re-launching? I had the same issue when I first launched the game on Stadia after the update, but since launching again the cursor appears.

Thanks. Any idea what kind of time frame we're looking at?


My guess would be tomorrow since it is getting late in the day now. Will post when I have been advised it is live.


The update is now live on Stadia.


Just a heads up for keeping us up to date and informed, hope this will be how future updates will be announced, keep up the good work !

Love the changes with the update, but I'm going to throw my voice in with the people saying there needs to be new content for me to continue playing. Hopefully the patch 4 they discussed has new classes, NPCs, quests and companions. Otherwise I'll be sitting this game out until that stuff is introduced.

Actually what I want as well, but as I didn’t see it in the notes I assume the option is still bad

I closed the game and relaunched.

I logged out of my Google/Stadia account and signed back in.

I rebooted.

I cleared all the Stadia cookies from Chrome.

No Joy.

I did discover that the cursor is there, it is just invisible! If I'm careful I can make menu selections.

I contacted Support

Are hand-crossbows back in or are they still being worked on?

Btw, this isn't going to happen until release. I'm pretty sure Larian has already stated that more races and classes will not be added until after it is out of Early Access.


False, unless you have a source newer than Panel From Hell (1:21:53) to support this. During the panel Swen said new classes, races, companions and features will be added during EA. What isn't going to be added is more acts. (Though you could say more story may be added in the form of new quests or getting more of Act I - we don't have the full act available afaik.)

Here to express my strong distaste for the "dumbing down" of characterisation because people complained that they were mean to the pc. Boooo. I don't think posting this will mean anything but the newer "happy families" changes are just sad.

Is it really? From what Larian said in the patch update, it should be "less annoying" (not criticizing every little thing you do), not "blander" (having no opinions). I was wondering what the player opinions are going to be.

Yeah, I know i'm going to be in the minority but still. I alway saw the approval-disapproval system as their own personal feelings towards the pc and peoples opinions of others do change based on their actions: imo I would have hidden approval completely from the players view and just had the dialogue change, but again that's just me and I highly doubt many people would have wanted anything like that. I personally don't think the change was a good idea, but I'm not going to get all bent out of shape over it.

I also wish this hadn't changed. The author had a vision -- a group of people who, under normal circumstances wouldn't associated, forced to work together. Now that people are more agreeable that story makes less sense.

And it seems like a bad interpretation of the feedback. What's needed are more companions you get along with, not 'personality adjustments'. In BG1 I adventure with my lifelong best friend, two of my father's most loyal friends and insanely loyal ranger.

I want to have a party like that -- people I like and trust -- but I don't want to force square pegs in round holes or to start using a screwdriver as a hammer. The initial EA companions were built for a purpose, let them serve that purpose and let the writers create other, equally compelling, companions that serve other purposes.

Bravo Larian, great job in listening to your players, we are really on a very promising path there, thank you.
I have to admit that it struck a chord in me when Shadowheart proved to be a little more human, I really felt a connexion with her, great job here too smile

I have mixed feelings on overt approval systems. On one hand, it's gamey and I don't like gamey, on the other, it's to show something that would be more visible in real life than it is in a video game (subtleties that would be a massive amount of work for little gain). I also like to know where I'm standing - and instant feedback makes me undestand why companions like or dislike me, as well as learn their opinions on things without it needing dedicated conversations.
