The issue that prevented us from our beta build yesterday has been resolved and the beta build for v3.1.0.0011 has been loaded onto Steam and GOG. Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.

A couple of minor bits of feedback:

 

Some of the premade characters have the same portraits as crew members you can hire. I understand crew members using player portraits because there are only so many portraits you can make, but I think with premade characters there should ideally be no overlap, since the premade characters and crew members both come from the developer side. So please check the premade characters' portraits against the existing crew members and make sure none are the same.

 

The new Berath's Blessing to give Eder a pet slot is nice, but maybe a bit expensive. A second pet running around isn't THAT big a deal in terms of balance etc. Maybe an 8 or 5 cost would be better for that

We were actually making sure it was indeed fixed as it was fixed as a consequence of fixing the Potions a Plenty quest.  Thank you for helping to verify Bellegar :)

Anyone who has passed the point of getting the fragments that want them, please Private Message me so I know you need them and I'll see about getting them for you.

While I haven't tried the encounters, I think I'm loving the willingness to have injury-inducing attacks on PotD. Really adds a parallel technical difficulty to the fights I think.

 

Looking forward to trying Hylea's challenge

When I switched to the 3.1 patch I got a graphics stutter almost exactly every three seconds (the screen freezes for a fraction of a second). Needless to say, that is very distracting! Switching back to the non-beta version (via Steam) and the stutter goes away, switching back to the beta causes it to come back. I tried saving and re-loading and restarting the game a few times, but the same glitch is there.

 

I upgraded my graphics driver (Nvidia) to the latest version (it was two month's out of date) and now the stutter happens every six seconds instead of every three, but the effect is the same. I went through the suggested settings for people with high-end Nvidia cards (I have a GeForce Titan), but none of that helped. Lowering the graphics quality to "Low" and changing the resolution also does not help. This does not seem to be related to my graphics settings at all.

 

I have played Deadfire with every version and patch since the day it was released with this exact same hardware, and have never had any problems with graphics at all, played on the highest setting.

Could someone confirm Challenges and Blessings can bow by used in conjunction?

 

If using two pets, do their effects stack?

 

Amazing patch, anyway—thank you Obsidian!

Obsidian's attitude toward portraits is essentially that they do not matter.

I FOUND A BUG: There is a way to choose challenges and blessings together: simply open the blessings menu then click the "x", then turn on challenges and click "continue" - you will be taken back to the blessings menu where they can be selected. I haven't tried to actually start a game this way since I assume this is unintended and would screw up somehow.

Challenges + Blessings should be possible from the get-go. I really don’t get why they chose to let you play Challenges on Story Mode but Blessings are out.

 

Hope they’ll reconsider and let us use Blessings and Challenges together.

 

Are mods usable with Challenges now? (They really should be.)
