Patch 1.1.0 Updates Thread


Question

Hello Beta Patch folk!

 

Version 1.1.0 is almost ready for release. The Devs have been working on this patch for quite a while, and our QA team has been doing the best they can, but we would love to get your help again in seeing if anything has snuck by them.

 

You can find instructions on how to opt in to the beta branch on this thread.

 

Due to the quantity of fixes in this patch (there are well over 1000 fixes in this update), we won't be exhaustively listing them all out. Below are all of the features and a small subset of the fixes in this patch. We'll continue adding to this list as we near the patch release.

 

For those who have modded the game

You may have to uninstall or update your mod when you update the game as they may not be compatible with v1.1.0

 


Build 1.1.0.0034 Updates

The following are all of the updates that occurred between build 31 and build 34.

  • Fixed some Digsite Sublevel encounters that were not playing their emerges.
  • Null check fix in NavigationPath.ClearCorners which was occasionally causing transition / load failures booting back to main menu. (Forum log)
  • Fixed some Partial hair for Maia and Eder
  • Fixed all in-game achievement icons no longer displaying in the Achievement UI or the Achievement notification
  • ‘Start and Skip Intro’ localization added
  • Added some missing Korean Localization

The following are all of the updates that occurred between build 29 and build 31.

  • Potential fix for very long start-up time (before the Obsidian logo was shown)
    • If you were experiencing this bug, please let us know if this is resolved for you in build 31.
  • Removed the "Show News" game option, which in turn fixes the Disabled News bug
  • Fixed issue with opening the Options in the Prologue after Character Creation resetting the player's class when arriving to their body.
  • Fix party AI not reconnecting decision trees when dismissed and recruited. 
  • Various Partial hair fixes

  • Fixed issue where auto-granted abilities weren't added back when retraining.

  • All encounter changes for PotD are now in.
  • Correction! Maia will no longer leave the party right after entering The Brass Citadel, but will do so when the player approaches the Powderhouse.

  • Ship combat balance and combatant count updates:
    • Made Closing to Board less punishing for players by lowering the base damage values for hull, sail, and crew damage.
    • Increased damage for ramming ships (both to the rammer and rammee).
    • Reduced the accuracy given per rank of cannoneer.
    • Reduced Ship health by ~20%.
    • Added opponent deck defender count to ship duel UI.
    • Globally Updated ship combats to have a 1:1 ratio of combatants to crew. Enemy Ship Defenders are now shown separately.

Guys, please, what about all the quests that break when done out of order? I've read enough worrisome reports about quests outright breaking but there are also other issues, like dialogue appearing when it shouldn't or even entire characters appearing and acting as if we've worked together already.

 

Can you at least acknowledge that there are a number of quests that break when you don't follow them exactly? Just telling us you know about them and are working on them is enough for me.

 

I can't play until I know quests won't randomly give me dialogue options for things I haven't seen or done, or throw characters at me that I'm not supposed to meet yet.

Are there any fixes for the companion dispoitions raising too quickly in this patch (currently of planned)? Out of all of the bugs that is the one I'm principally waiting to be fixed before I re-start (since interacting with the companions is one of the primary pluses of the these games in my own mind.)

 

(This isn't a moan, by-the-by, if it's not, it's not - them's the breaks and I'll just have to go bunnies and amuse myself for a while longer, but it would be nice to known one way or another.)

 

I think that should be the number one concern , fixing bugs on companions , story , etc .... But looks like im wrong and making the game harder is more important , in a RPG , well what do i know ...

Seriously?  No fix for inability respec my chanter without losing the chant selected on character creation?

 

 

I'm sorry that is still happening for you @Awkward Davies, would you mind sending us a save file that we could reproduce the issue from? We think our fix may not be working for older saves, so any saves we can get would help us find out why. Saves are big, so we'd recommend either using a dropbox/google drive link or sending it to us at bugs@obsidian.net

 

 

@David Benefield, are you saying I would have to start a completely new game to avoid the problem?  I have tried respecing after updating to latest beta and still have the same issue.  Do you need a save from before a broken respec or after?  Where do I find save files for a Steam installation of Deadfire?

 

 

We may be able to make a fix for old saves, but we'd need to better understand what is broken for those saves. Ideally we need a save just before the respec occurs so that we can cause the issue to happen on our end and trace what it does wrong.

 

See below for notes on where the save game files are stored, and thank you for your help!!

If you play the beta patch this stuff is much improved, Xoti no longer tries to jump directly into your pants, etc. I think it's still getting tweaked a bit though. I think the issue is a lot of conversations are front-loaded and the companion quests are fairly short.

ACE!

 

Cheers.

 

('Course,  the irony is, I'm now going on holiday for a week...! Still, fair chance the patch might be out if beta by the time I get back and am ready to play (not that it being in beta would have stopped me), so all to the good, one supposes!)

Thanks.  I submitted what I think was my most recent test of the problem.  To be clear, I wouldn't really expect it to be fixed in an old save, but I am still seeing this happen with a character without issues that I try to respec in latest Beta build.  The only thing I haven't tried is starting with a new character using the Beta.

The beta patch fixed 2 Aloth's conflicting dispositions by removing one, but now he has too few dispositions and only 2 of those are positives. How are we supposed to raise rep with him if he has so few things he likes?

It's not fair when other companions have so many:

While Aloth only has 5:

He should at least have a positive anti-Leaden Key disposition when he's anti-Leaden Key, or positive pro-Leaden Key disposition when he's pro-Leaden Key. But more positives should be added as well, maybe Skulduggery, Progressive and Resourcefulness. 

Devs, when are you going to address this? Nothing new in the last patch.

Duskfall sword's Drawing Cut ability is bugged, it says "Grants" but doesn't actually grant anything anymore (why is everything getting nerfed?!):

This also is still not fixed with last patch.

With stewardship and dutiful still conflictiing with anti tradition imo. He wants people to obey orders real or imagined irrespective of validity unless it can be pinned on tradition? Two crappy things he likes, 3 things he doesn't like, with his interpretation of "pride" often being debatable. EH!

 

He should have progressive instead of anti tradition (at least if he's anti leaden key), responsible instead of dutiful and irresponsible. skulduggery/resourceful and worldy also wouldn't hurt.

  • Fixed some Partial hair for Maia and Eder

Uhh, right:

I think all companions and the Watcher really need to be "combed" thoroughly all over again before release patch, because these bugs with protruding ears/hair and bald patches just keep piling up:

None of these are fixed either.

I see Sacred Immolation still has obscene amount of self damage, when is it gonna be fixed? Nobody wants to use an ability that kills a paladin within seconds. 

This is still as unusable as before in the latest patch.

This is the kind of stuff I thought the beta was for. A glaring bug with a new feature could be addressed before release. I'm surprised the patch released with it.

Guess they were hard on schedule with the patch. But'd be pissed off if the next one doesn't address these or all the other recent bug reports.

Well about recent..... Some of the companion bugs they didn't fix were found on next day after release

Yea, I'm not defending devs here, but I recall them mentioning that companions bugs likely won't be fixed in this patch, only dispositions (even though Aloth's are still not fixed properly).

And the patch did not fix the part in the legacy creator by not giving the choice to have Manetha keep her regrets. :( I am going to guess that applies to some of the other choices that were mentioned before as missing from the Legacy Creator?
