Yes, i thought my game had been updated, but it hadn't. After updating I saw the scene and it was fine.

Fix for blacked out maps/minimap? No? Kissing animations were more important, huh?

Urgh. Act 3 still hideously broken on Mac. I think my save games must be buggy at this point. No choice but to restart. frown

Thanks for the hotfix, Larian. Appreciate the work, but two hotfixes for one patch may suggest the amount of playtesting that is done is inadequate/disproportional to the massive scale of the game. It also bears reminding that Minthara has been bugged since launch and Larian have seemingly chosen to ignore her issues for a prolonged amount of time.

The state of the ending/epilogues available has also demotivated me from finishing my third playthrough. I have decided to stop playing to allow myself to get invested in other games. Hopefully when I come back in a few months or so, the game will have improved significantly. Maybe winning GOTY will motivate the team to work even harder than before. Cheers smile

I have not tried this latest patch. As of last week, Act 3 was fully broken and unplayable on PS5.

Same same, I’m gonna give it until the new year and see what state the game is in then. Hopefully act 3 will be closer to a finished product, including endings and epilogues.

Larian, what’s going on?

You provided a perfectly working game with acceptable bugs and quirks on the PS5.
Then about ten days ago you broke the game on PS5 COMPLETELY.

What avenue for support and help do we, paying customers, have?

Act 3 is is UNPLAYABLE. I have several videos with examples, if you’d care to see them. But more importantly, when can we expect a public apology?

If you don’t think it is needed, have power up a PS5 and try to play five minutes of Act 3. No sensible person would feel proud of the experience the game provides after the latest patch.

The apology would be best received with a roadmap and promised date for a fix, like CDPR did with Cyberpunk. Both products have proven to have been released in an unfinished, untested state.

Do you make actual bug reports on their support site? I’m on ps5 too, and I’m sending plenty of detailed reports that they kindly respond to and inform me if it’s already a known issue or unreported. Granted, you can’t send videos - only screen caps, but that’s where I choose to write more in detail ‘what, when and where’ - so they have a chance to find the issues more easily.

They know about this they just don't care.
They don't even responded to the journalist.
Its ok to be a fan of the game. But to be a fanatic isn't.
A fanatic will stay in the burning building and die. While the fan will be alive and he will be just disappointed.

It isn't a nice thing to attack ppl when they are pointing out real problems and having serious issues . We had fun to play this game til patch 2-3 w/o any serious issues. No we don't have fun but we also don't have the possibility to roll back.

Ah, I know that there are a lot of issues right now, but it’s still one of the best games I’ve ever played. They’ll get it all sorted. Eventually. I believe in them.

Before hotfix 11 Steam would correctly detect the DualSense controller I use and show me Playstation glyphs, even if I had enabled Steam input support.

Since hotfix 11 however, when Steam Input support is enabled, the game keeps defaulting to Steam Input and therefore showing Xbox glyphs. It also keeps throwing 'controller not found' messages at random, interrupting play.

I fixed this by disabling Steam Input for Playstation controllers in the Steam/settings/controller menu. This both re-enabled the Playstation glyphs and stopped the error messages.

Nothing major but perhaps it's useful to others who are experiencing this problem or maybe important to devs diagnosing the current problems reported by controller users more widely.

Honestly, I love the game to bits, but it has gotten to a point where I can't even be bothered to send bug reports - much less detailed ones. I also reported a lot of bugs prior to Patch 4, and they replied they were working on it. Guess what? They're still there.

They're not in Early Access anymore. We shouldn't have to do the work for them. The recent changes have made it clear to me they're not doing a lot of playtesting. I really wish they would just come forward and tell us what they're currently working on, etc. Just a crumb of communication between updates.

And it is still. I can literally Do nothing in the under City but walk around a Not fully loaded area while every npc and companion is freezed on Spot. You cant interact with anything for Minutes till the game Catches up Just to freeze 5 seconds later again. This really makes me sad as it is my first playthrough and the first two Acts were so Stunning and absolutly the best experience gaming experience since elden ring for me. Im sad

I kinda Felt really Bad For Yu Bro..
and yu are in your First Playthrough yet and had to experience something like that..

in Truth im avoiding this Forum and the Game at All..
im Glad i Get to Beat hin already at Least 2 times Running Ok was in Lounch and 2.0
Becouse after 3.0 the game turn into a Frustration for me.
evry new Patch i Wiped out evrything and Start a New Run Just to Come across new Crazy Bugs..
so far stop conting on 11 but i bet i did more.
becouse sometimes i just deleted the game when i get to act 3.
at Least act 1,2 i did more then 20 times already.

and im just waiting now.. taking a really good time off this Game..
maybe someday if i Had a chance again in my Life..
i Give another Try.

and dont Get me Wrong the Real Sad thing for me its that like many already said..
the Act 1,2 of this Game its Something i Never Saw Before in Any Game..
some come Closer to Me but the first and second act of this Game is So Complex.. that really felt like Real Life..
Evrything yu Say and Do.. Will Have a Consequence.. amazing like Real Table Top.
and to see the Game going so Bad this Way..
and to see that Larian its already wanting to Move On from the Game..
Dont Know.. i cant see any Light for this Game in the end of the Tunnel anymore..

I have to disagree here. Yes, of course, BG3 is complex and the quest design is very intelligent. But not everything you do and say directly influences what happens in the world. That's not true. I think it's also time to demystify the magic of BG3. Yes, there are connections and many decisions vary in the course of the game. Nevertheless, in the end you've chosen either Side A or Side B. The possibilities of decisions may seem extensive at first glance but the actual tangible consequences are manageable. It's far from the case that a single different choice leads to a completely different outcome. This impression is often created. The paths to solutions are sometimes very broad, yes, but the end result is often either/or, not to mention that decisions in Act 1 have any significant impact on things in Act 2 or Act 3. Yes, there are some effects here but they are not the norm. Each act is, for the most part, self-contained. This becomes evident in the respective endings, where almost nothing from the decisions made during the game is picked up or mentioned. I'm not saying that it's all poorly done; on the contrary, but I'm starting to be bothered by how BG3 is elevated far beyond what it ultimately is

Dear Larian,

Can you at least say whether we should expect the patch next week or week after or should we just play other games in the meantime?

Honestly I don't want explanation apology or anything like that.
What I want is 4 things on the next patch note.

Laag stutter fixed.
Couch coop fixed.
BG3 is working again on SteamDeck.

Added new feature to select older patch versions.

This should be priority . They should focus on those things.
The rest can come with hotfix or this should be a hotfix.
