1. Turn OFF Reckless Assault
2. Save the Game
3. Load the Game
4. Turn ON Reckless Assault

Then you haven't played Wasteland 2. It had a lot more bugs then PoE and they were ironed. I think the devs are doing a great job, my only complain is the log of the dialogue/combat size that gets reset every time I launch the game.

If someone can't read what should be well readable with healthy eyes, he can always use the browsers text scale option. (With bad eyesight you normally have such an option for larger fonts activated permanently. So your font size would be even too large for them.)

All right, but then just use your created thread to post new updates for your list. Or keep your posts at least within one single other thread instead of posting the same message multiple times in different threads/blogs.

So, I see... that's the reason why you started to spam your message all over the place but hold on and think about it: It is trolling!

 

If you don't like that Obsidian released the game in the initial given state, just open ONE thread about it or write an open letter to Obsidian. But stop reposting the same stuff (I know, it's updated) everywhere. What do you want them to do now except working as hard as they can on the patches? - Should they invent a time machine and correct this mistake?

Jazou

 

Don't confuse two separate issues and assume it is something it is not, i.e my posts to highlight bugs and my, justified, frustration as a customer.

 

I am updating the thread as I go as I can't edit old ones.

 

I am not trolling, I am making them aware because the last time I posted on this thread for patch 1.04 Darren, a dev, was very happy that I posted it and kept it updated.

 

If you notice my with my updates I also update to remove fixed issues once they are addressed.

 

Anyhow, think as you like, I can't change someones opinion, but I am simply posting the updates for ease of reference and so they are noticed. 

 

If you consider it trolling, that's your opinion, nothing else. Not one other person has complained about it, in fact people have appreciated it, including the devs.

 

And if people do start to complain about it, then great, that means the thread has been duly noticed and the bugs stand more chance of coming to the community and devs attention.

 

By the way, what do you think writing an open letter will achieve? Some empty words of commiseration? Will they change the way they operate and release games due to my letter? You know the answers to that, so there would be no point in writing such a letter.

 

Why do these post bother you so much anyway? It make no sense that you would be upset for me trying to get these issues to the devs attention, who have already shown appreciation, in order for them to fix them.

 

Thank you for your suggestions though.

 

Once patch 1.05 is release I will compile a new thread with the existing bugs and post them all again in all the patch threads. Hopefully they can address the most common remaining bugs in patch 1.06.

Just because someone else did it does not make it right. I also said I know they are working to fix it. That does not mean I have no right to be upset for buying a faulty product.

We get why you're irritated at bugs and certainly appreciate that someone is keeping track of them, but there really is no need to use such a large font size, especially when it contains a lot of links. When it's posted three times in the comments of a single post ad features a lot of repetition, surely you can see why people would find it a little annoying. If people have bad eyesight then they can zoom in, and indeed, they probably already have seeing as everyone else uses small text.

Please take the discussion regarding Baladas and his issue tracking posts to another thread. I would like to keep these comments more focused on the issues relating to 1.05 so the devs can quickly find and fix them. If these comments devolve into bickering the devs will have a more difficult time finding problems in the beta.

 

Thanks.

9. Spellbind items not giving the spell until you equip then save/load

 

http://forums.obsidi...luntains-staff/ 

 

Chances are this is related to this.

 

 

EDIT: Unrelated, but I've just noticed that 1.5 shows "Interrupt" and "Concentration" in the character record. Nice touch :) Any chance they'll get a small icon next to them like other items shown in there (accuracy, damage, defenses, damage reduction)?

 

Also, could any dev shed some light on how exactly Interrupt and Concentration are calculated?

Was the bug that causes members with items or talents that increase spell count to have a permanent increase in spell count when going from area to area fixed in 1.05? I sort of posted this in an old thread but I am not sure if it's been addressed in the beta as one of those hidden fixes.

 

http://forums.obsidi...t-level-spells/

 

For me it's being caused by

 

1. Not having the members in my active party

2. They were equipped with either the rings that give a spell cast bonus OR the talent that gives you an extra spell cast

3. Within my stronghold, (from the room where you rest on your bed for rest bonuses) every time that I descend the stairs I find that the spell cast count in the tier boosted by the talent or item increases pernamently. So if Hiravias can cast say 40 tier 1 spells and is not in my party, descending those stairs would increase it to 41 since he has that bonus tier 1 spell cast talent mentioned.

 

Interestingly enough I went to the Gilded veil inn, entered and exited through the front door, returned them to my party and noticed the spell count went up for one for Aloth who only has the bonus forth tier spell talent but not Hiravias who has the bonus first tier spell talent.  Went to the dyrford village inn and did the same but nothing happened. Not sure what's causing this but it's definitely involved with entering and exiting/moving from certain areas. Here's my save and log. Also if the party member is on some minor/average/major adventure and is busy, the glitch doesn't seem to affect them for the time being.

 

https://www.dropbox....e.savegame?dl=0

 

https://www.dropbox....ut_log.txt?dl=0

 

I suppose it's more beneficial than not but it feels kind of cheap to be walking around with 20-40 spell casts in the categories that have that skill since I switch my party members around often.

Good work, thanks guys for your engagement.

There is one question left in particular localization for the added content.

Do you have plans which deals with non loacated text?

Thanks in advance!
