  1. I started my first playthrough on my home computer on hard with expert mode enabled, and have been actually enjoying most of the restrictions (no helpful tips, aoe markers, can't open stash, etc.) Last weekend I traveled out of town, and decided to play on my laptop. As soon as I loaded my last save I noticed something was wrong, and finally I realized that expert mode was off. I was able to check/uncheck the various settings, like locking the stash, and I started seeing all the tutorial popups. When I returned home and played on my gaming machine, the expert mode setting was back in place. One other oddity I noticed was that my own save games showed up under my wife's account when she started playing. She and I share the laptop, so I assume that somehow my cloud saves got mixed with hers.
  2. I downloaded the game from the Ap Store, where can I find the serial code to sync with Steam or did I have to download it through them? Using Mac OSX Yosemite. Cheers
  3. a proper thread about this would be better http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/aboutpaidcontent also someone posted this
  4. Hi, I dowloaded Pillars of Eternity from steam yesterday, but got an instant crush (within 0.3 seconds) when I try to start it up. Here's what I have tried and not work: 1. restart windows, steam. 2. run exe file directly, run as administrator, use 256 color 3. no log file can be found under the game folder. 4. switch between graphic cards( AMD Radeon HD 7450M, Intel® HD Graphics 4000 ) 5. change non-unicode language into English, since I'm not using an English Windows system. 6. check google for similar problem and solution. My computer environment: Game Version: OS: Windows 8 x64 Graphic Cards: AMD Radeon HD 7450M, Intel® HD Graphics 4000 Log file: can't find it under the game folder. Really want to play this game, anyone help?
  5. So I've been playing Pillars on my home PC, but then decided to install it on my work PC. I made great progress at work, saved the game, but them when I got home and fired up Pillars on the home PC, my most recent save game from work did not come up. Frustrating.... Any ideas?
  6. I play PoE using Steam on my Macbook Pro and on my Windows machine, but the savegames are not syncing between two platforms.
  7. Sorry if this is a total noob question, but its been a long time since I played a modern PC game (still playing IWD / NWN). I have never used Steam, and just recently learned about GoG. So my quesitons are: Where is the best place to get PoE? What is the best "edition" of PoE to get? And can you get PoE at a retail store in Canada (and thus get a physical copy)? I would like to get a strategy guide for the game. Thanks, N.
  8. Hello folks. Just the description of the thread; My achievemens disappears to one day to another. I never used cheats, never. 31+ hours played with different chars, 12+ with the most advanced character. If I remember well yesterday I had them. So.. ¿ bug ? known bug ? I must bite my tongue and f*** myself ?
  9. Using the Steam 64-bit client. Cross-posted from the Steam forum. Due to Ubuntu becoming as stable as a unbalanced house of cards on this hardware with the proprietary AMD drivers, I have to run the open souce Radeon drivers (have an HD 6670 2GB). The problem is, the game doesn't even start. Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard. 8GB RAM. Running from the commandline, Steam reports the following: ERROR: ld.so: object '/home/stuart/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored. ERROR: ld.so: object '/home/stuart/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/gameoverlayrenderer.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored. Found path: /home/stuart/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Pillars of Eternity/PillarsOfEternity Mono path[] = '/home/stuart/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Pillars of Eternity/PillarsOfEternity_Data/Managed' Mono path[1] = '/home/stuart/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Pillars of Eternity/PillarsOfEternity_Data/Mono' Mono config path = '/home/stuart/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Pillars of Eternity/PillarsOfEternity_Data/Mono/etc' Game removed: AppID 291650 "Pillars of Eternity", ProcID 7797 Anyone else had this issue? Any workarounds known?
  10. I've noticed, that the game does not start if the frame counter is enabled in Steam. I only get a black screen with the gauntlet courser. The frame counter itself works, since I can enable it via the Steam overlay, once I am in the game, but I have to disable it again in order to start the game. OS X 10.10.2 MacBook Pro 9.1 (15-inch, Mid 2012), Intel Core i7 2,3GHz, 8GB Ram, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M Game version 1.03 Steam Build Apr 2 2015, API: v017, Package version 1428012781
  11. Steam might be the only one to give preload, but GoG gives DRM free version without the client hog, so different people might prefer different things ... what would YOU pick in the upcoming days ? )
  12. Description: Crash of Pillars of Eternity at start-up via Steam. Steps to Reproduce the Issue: All the time. Running as Administrator makes no difference except the user question. Closed steam in task manager details en restarted and still the same problem. Restarted the PC and still have te same problem. Used te UNCL Fonts removing but the command prompt doesn't seem to do anything / there is no UNCL Font to delete. Important Files: I don't have permission to upload a file yet or the basic uploader fails. But I have a Output log and DXdiag. Kind Regards Mackmora
  13. Hello there! Since the release, the mac version launch with a black screen then crash if steam overlay is enabled. Mac specs: - iMac 27" mid 2011 - CPU: Intel Core i5 3.1GHz - RAM: 12 Go - GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1Go - SSD 1To Unity's log:
  14. The game crashed directly after fighting the bandits in Valewood, and exited with a message about creating a dump folder, I've added dxdiag and the autosave when entering the woods (nearest one I had). (Added zip file to dropbox because the forum attach doesn't work for me.) https://www.dropbox.com/s/ef0qlhfak9kha8m/2015-04-01_210428.zip?dl=0
  15. Description & Steps to Reproduce the Issue: The Steam Overlay will not open if the PillarsOfEternity.exe is Run as administrator. This is true whether the "run as admin" function is set in the exe's Properties or if "run as admin" is selected by right clicking on the exe. The problem persists whether at the main menu or in-game. When admin is set via properties and the game is run via steam v1.0.2.0508 -steam is displayed in the lower left-hand corner. Running the exe directly (by double clicking) only v1.0.2.0508 is displayed. When admid is set by right clicking on the exe only v1.0.2.0508 is displayed. In all three cases the overlay will not work. What I tried to do to fix it - TL-DR: I failed: [After a bit of browsing I thought I'd try the method below to get both working simultaneously. I thought I had it working but upon validating the process in task manager (here's a how to) I could see that PoE was in fact NOT running as administrator:] Find Pillars of Eternity via Steam (the program, not the installation location), right click and select Properties A window will open on the GENERAL tab (make sure you have the Enable the Steam Overlay while in-game option checked) Select the SET LAUNCH OPTIONS... button and in the Launch Options window that appears type in -forceservice and select the OK button. If you have any other commands in here make sure to leave a space between them (found this command here.) Close the Pillars of Eternity - Properties window and launch the game through Steam. The lower left-hand corner of the screen will now read: v1.0.2.0508 -steam -forceservice Now you're running as admin and get to keep the Steam overlay to boot! Enjoy! After four hours of research I'm done. Sadness, I have newb'd. Sadness lives in my soul. Info for devs: As this is not a crash I didn't include any savegame files, output logs or screenshots. Let me know if there is any more info that'd help you. I have included my system specs via dxdiag (as well as the 64-bit dxdiag) and just in case you need it here is my Steam version info: Built Mar 23 2015, at 20:07:51 Steam API: v017 Steam package versions: 1427176184 System Spec links: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5-ClpK5zHyfMzR6MndJc3hvNmc&authuser=0 https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5-ClpK5zHyfZlYyQjZVUEJSYmM&authuser=0 (64-bit version) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oh by the way, I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank the entire team at Obsidian for this amazing game. I've barely scratched the surface and I love it already. I've never played any of the old CRPGs but I backed anyway. The fact that you guys have a splash screen thank you for your backers every time the game starts off is pure awesome. Thank you for that! I know there are mainstream haters out there looking for any excuse to write this game off because it doesn't fit in their "clique" of what "gaming should be" - to hell with 'em. Gamers know what this game is worth and stuffed coffers speak loudest. I'm so proud that PoE is getting the limelight it deserves.
  16. I backed the game for 65$ and then bought the backer beta back when it came out, now however my product page only lets me see the beta key and nothing else even though my kickstarter pledge is listed as confirmed under orders. I've emailed support but no response as of yet. Thanks in advance.
  17. Hi, Started playing Pillars of Eternity this week-end, and I'm very impressed so far, or I would be if I could play without crashing. I indeed regularly encounter a full "crash to black screen" at any random moments of the game. So far it happened to me before even starting the game during the character creation period, and several times during the first 3 or 4 zones of the game. It can happen during combat, during simple movement/exploration, etc. When the crash happens, the game starts by freezing for a second or two, then it goes fully black for a few seconds, and only then I go to the error message "Pillars of Eternity has stopped working". One information that might be helpful, is that I encountered the exact same crash on Wasteland 2 (characterized by having the same error message, same freezes, the same way my screen flickers, etc.). At the time I had spent weeks discussing over e-mail with inXile's support without them finding the cause of the issue. I then stopped playing W2 for a while, and tried again from time to time after they patched to see if it was working. Here is the link to my original thread on the same issue for Wasteland 2, which didn't get much answers unfortunately. As of now, this crash seems to have disappeared from Wasteland 2. This might be after their patch 4 or 5, but I'm not sure they have fixed it knowingly. I do not have any issue with other Unity-based games such as Shadowrun Returns though, and do not have this issue with any other games at the moment. My system specs: CPU: AMD FX 8350 8-core RAM: 12GB OS: Windows 7 64bits GPU: Radeon R9 290x, tested with both 15.2 and 15.3 drivers, both have the same issue Direct upload to the files kept failing, so DxDiag, Save file and Output log are all located on Dropbox here. Hope this can help get it fixed soon !
  18. Hi, I'm new in this forum and I'm sorry from now for my terrible english. Yesterday (29/03) I downloaded the game in the morning and I played it for the first time for 1 hour in the afternoon. Everything works, I was super-huber-happy and at the end I saved the game. Today (30/03) I turned on my pc, I lunched steam application after a "steam search for the updates", I lunched the game. Unfortunately after the sponsors, the program freez at the "kickstarter thanks". Few second after, windows ask me to stop the program and I return on the Desktop. What happens?!?! Someone has the same problem? Thanks for help!
  19. Hi, I unlocked my backer code for a Royal Edition. Game is ok but the DLC page on Steam is empty. Something I can do about it? See screenshot http://i.imgur.com/0FKF78x.jpg?1 PS: there is no search feature in this forum? Also, uploading the screenshot here failed 3 times.
  20. Hi, my game keeps crashing when I try to leave the Black Hammer Smithery. It gets into the loading screen, stays there for a few seconds and then throws me onto the desktop. I am playing the Steam version. The crash reports, specs and savegame can be found here (I'd use the file attachment function if it wouldn't keep giving me error messages).
  21. Hello, I've looked and looked but I couldn't find any solid information. I have the $140 reward from the Kickstarter and I am supposed to have gotten 3 keys total. One is listed under the Royal Tier under the backer portal, but where are the other two located?
  22. I have a Steam copy of the game. By default, the game runs in German; I want to play it in English. However, if I change the language to English (via Library > Properties > Language), the game still runs in German. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?
  23. I'm deciding between getting this on GOG and Steam, and wanted to know: Can the Steam version can be launched directly from the executable without starting Steam? For context, here is a list of such [strong air quotes] "DRM-free" games on Steam. Most Paradox titles are this way, as are Larian's and InXile's games. (I prefer GOG for its DRM-free version but manual patching is going to be a bother in the first few months when patches will come thick and fast. The Steam version being essentially DRM-free is the best case scenario.)
  24. I'm using Steam streaming to play the game on my MacBook Pro. The host machine is an i5 desktop with 16 GB of RAM and an nvidia 760 GTX. I'm running into some issues with this: 1) It occasionally won't show Load Game or Continue at the starting menu. Rather, they're grayed out as if I've never played the game. To fix this, I seem to need to open another game, then reopen Pillars. 2) It sometimes will not fill a 16:9 area of my screen, despite the resolution set for 1080p. Readjusting the resolution at least fixes this.
  25. There's this misconception that Steam is DRM. Steam is just a delivery system, but Valve supplies tool to implement DRM if developers and publishers want to make use of them. Steam games do not require Steam to run unless it is configured so by the game's manager. Skyrim on launch did not require Steam to run, but Bethesda patched it later. Many older games do not bother with Steam dependency, such as Commandos 2. Move the game folder around, copy it to another PC, launch it from the exe with Steam closed (and Steam will not start up). It makes no sense to say "We will offer a Steam version and a DRM-free version" because being a Steam version doesn't necessarily imply things one way or the other regarding DRM implementation. Why not make all versions DRM-free, yet still sell the game on both Steam and GoG? Why punish people who choose Steam instead of GoG as their delivery system by giving them DRM in their copy, when DRM free versions will be readily available anyways?
