Yes, it said "24.55GB" but it didn't download and install anything close to 24.55GB...;) Indeed, the total patch was just a few GBs in scope as the patch actually started for me somewhere around the 21GB mark and concluded a few minutes later. Total time was about ten minutes (or less.)

Apparently, the hotfix was installed over the tail-end of the last 24.55GB patch--instead of repeating that entire download. I was not running Galaxy earlier, so it wasn't downloading in the background--unless Galaxy can now download & update my GOG games even when Galaxy isn't running! If that's so, this is the first I've heard about that...;)

Anyway--looks like you were a little premature on the trigger, there, Thespen. I can definitely recommend this update for Galaxy users--I see nothing about it that is "broken" thus far.

Wanted to add: this is the first time I've seen this, so maybe they've been refining the GOG update scenario through Galaxy...

Small hot-fix? What you talking about willis?!?! It landed at 24.55GB!!1!1!oneone (GOG all the way)

As a side note, playing the same Act for 9 months isn't my forte. Once we get some Act 2 lovin' you'll get a slew of QA/QC data from me.

I'll admit I have definitely slowed down considerably on the amount I play so I don't totally burn myself out before the game actually releases. I'm sure I'll pick it up again on the next big update but honestly I've played act I so many times now with so many combinations of characters that the excitement has worn off quite a bit. Hopefully the game is still picking up enough new users so that a good quantity of feedback - and some new opinions - will keep flowing in while those of us that are on our 10,000 playthrough start to slow down.

I'm glad it was just a couple of gigs for you.

I'm playing a multiplayer game so I did download to continue playing with my team mates but while a little bit smaller than the 24+ gigs it still downloaded over 21 gigs (and for at least 2 others people I play with/know).

Also my internet is not too bad and is the fastest internet available in my area atm ( hopefully FTTP is coming here this year, which will fix the problem for me smile But what about those who can't get fast internet or heaven forbid have to pay for the amount they down load (and yes some areas of the world have these issues). So I stand by my original comment, thanks.

YES! This is the best news I have heard all week!

Truly? I'm not even sure about what it means.

For once we seem to be agreeing. What on earth does that mean? A community update about blah blah blah. What we all want is a whopping big update to the game.

It is what is said, they will actually finally go into detail about what feedback they are parsing and how. Right now Larian has been more or less secretive in that we don't even know if us talking here impacts anything, this will finally give us definitive answers and make it easier for us to actually give feedback and make this game the best it can be.

Larian : "we learned reading you that missing is really a problem in BG3. We added loaded dice to help you but our data showed that it's not enough.
We decided to add another homebrew : now players will be able to stack advantages/disadvantages"

"Us" : 😳

It worries me, talking about their in game telemetry and how they draw from that, since what we've seen so far is that they look at blunt character action data gathering pools, and then jump to their own completely unfounded wild conclusions about what players want or like based on that, and then claim they're listening to us when they make changes based upon that. That's what we've seen so far... I'm interested to see them explain it from their perspective, but it doesn't sound like they have any intention of diverging from this method, which is depressing.

Thanks for the update on the multiplayer--didn't know Larian had put any time into multiplayer as of now.

Yes, it was a couple of gigs--but I also downloaded a 24GB patch, too, in the past. You keep saying that something's "broken"...but I can't see that anything is broken. I mean--Larian is creating the patches and the fixes, and the patches work and install just fine from what I've seen. I don't see that anything Larian is doing is broken.

Can you maybe set your system up to download when you go to sleep at night, etc? There are ways to address such problems--we've all had to do so at one time or another in the past.

I don't understand your notion that games and patches should all fit on a floppy drive, apparently, and if they don't--they are broken...;) AAA games in 2021 can be as much as, and often more than, 60-80GBs when installed, with multiple tens of gigabytes of high-res (4k) textures included for 4k--some textures compress OK, others don't.

I guess my point is that it was you who signed on to the EA edition of the game. You are going to be doing so much more downloading of patch after patch than the person who waits until the game ships--or the person who waits until the game is finalized, etc.

You mention "what about the people with slow download access"? What about them? I don't get it...;) There are tens of millions of people globally who have no Internet at all, or who have slow Internet, but no hardware capable of playing a game like BG3. Are they Larian's fault as well? Is Larian to blame for what you perceive to be inequity? I don't think so.

I'm not trying to be hard to get along with--but you are talking to someone who suffered through years and years of dial-up modem Internet access so slow you wouldn't believe it today. Yet, ways exist to do and get the things you want even on modem tech so slow it's beyond obsolete today--and you are nowhere near that level of byte deprivation...;)

Instead of complaining and calling realities you don't like "broken," try and figure out ways to maximize the resources you have. Don't just sit there and wait until someone "fixes" it for you--do what you can for yourself with what you've got and you will be surprised at what you can accomplish. Criticism and blame are easy, but what's the pay-off? Not much, imo.

If the files are too big to download in ten minutes then download while you sleep or you are at work or in school, etc. Find workarounds to your problem--they exist, believe me.

Good news! I just downloaded and installed a 3.9MB patch through Galaxy for BG3! It, too, wasn't broken as it installed just fine...;)

Take care...I have no doubt you can work it out...;)

Hmm, Steam Database today shows both Patch 5 EA and Patch 5 Main branches updated at the exact same time... does that mean anything? Who knows!
Sigh. I'm trying to be as reasonable, patient and accepting as possible, but even I am twitching in anticipation of some kind of news/update/breadcrumbs... smile

Sadly the discussion that was had over this was that - no it doesn't mean anything.

I am 99% certain we won't see an update until during or after E3. Sorz.

Trying to follow Steam Database is (almost) always a fools errand akin to reading sheep entrails. Not worth the brainpower or time.

Yeah. They're losing me. Not gonna lie. I can only take so much of the same convos and the same gameplay and such.

If they don't give people something soon...

Well - we're not supposed to be playing the same game over and over again for the full year of EA just to test bugs. That'd be a sure way to burn out.

I've been re-playing Dragon Age: Inquisition while taking a break waiting for an update and/or Patch 5 here... I won't lie though, this game has got me hooked, like no other game has in years (except the Dragon Age series, but that was a while back). That's why I'm here on the forums every day!! smile
