Not Tomorrow for gog ?

 

Like I mentioned in the other thread, GOG likes to build their own installers. They probably sent GOG the files, and now its up to GOG to put them together in their installer and then upload them for the users. Since this thread went up so late in the day it makes me think that the patch went out late in the day as well, and thus GOG won't be getting to work on it until tomorrow since they're in Europe.

Fixed and issue where Bash was hitting multiple times with Carnage.

 

Was there some bug with Bash and Carnage I wasn't aware of, or does this mean Bash doesnt trigger carnage attacks now like when they changed retaliate to not trigger carnage?

I don't understand, can someone explain this? How could an effect that only procs on crits have a duration affected by graze/hit/crits?

When the weapon stuns on crit, the stun effect rolls separately against Fortitude to determine whether it lands and how long it lasts. Due to a bug, the result of this roll would not be used to calculate the stun duration, which would always be based off of the original crit that triggered it instead.

I hope you have not forgotten to update your loading screen announcement texts? So that all players know their is an update waiting.

That's not -all- fixes that were listed in the other thread, right?

Seems to be missing the fix for some of the ending slides either having no VO or the wrong VO not matching the text, for example?

No Blood Testament fix? :(

 

And Sabres. So they are similar in damage output early game, but scale less the more % damage boosts you accumulate during your playthrough. That's good.

Haven't purchased the DLC's yet, I did enjoy the main game, but have they address the long load times between transitions?

Loading times are about the same (but will likely be improved upon in a sequel); saves from 3.03 are compatible (when a patch makes older saves obsolete it is generally specified in the patch notes very explicitly.)

This is most likely the last update we ever get for Pillars right? :)

I don't have long load times and PC is 4 yrs old with no upgrades since my original build. Maybe try some needed spring cleaning on their PC?

I admit I didn't except such a long term maintenance. It's good to see the devs caring about their players.

I suppose it's good for Obsidian to keep a couple of people working on PoE if they want to reuse the engine and rules for a sequel.

Fixed and issue where Bash was hitting multiple times with Carnage.

 

Was there some bug with Bash and Carnage I wasn't aware of, or does this mean Bash doesnt trigger carnage attacks now like when they changed retaliate to not trigger carnage?

I found the bug, reasonably routinely Bash would proc more than once with Carnage (you'd get two bash attacks from one swing of your shield) - it may be related to the original Retaliate bug as you say. It was why I wasn't keen on developing my shield Barb idea, on the flip side Boeroer who did work up the idea said he rarely if ever encountered the bug. Still, I guess if the devs found something to patch there was something in the code which was making it act weird, even if the bug was sporadic. I thought it was something that should be addressed with Dragon's Maw being a signature soulbound item for the Barbarian.

 

Great work on the patch guys, looks like almost everything worthwhile is fixed. I'll look forward to getting it on GoG when they get their installer out.

Also, are you open to doing hotfixes? Not a full patch obviously, but if anyone notices anything extremely weird it would be good to get it resolved. This might be a good candidate for such a fix.
