Any ETA on the VO for Forgotten Sanctum? I'm waiting to finish up my playthrough until all the ending slides are voiced. Turn-based mode will give me plenty to do while I wait :D

So, are Beguiler Bonus damages and focus regen working as intended against afflicted targets ?

(+20% damages by default,

+30% damages with biting Whip,

+20% damages and +100% focus gain with draining whip)

 

Or is there still some kind of glitch ?

Monk

Effects of Monk's "Turning Wheel" are no longer applied to damage other than melee.

Why melee? Why not "weapon"? Now a monk who uses the Long Pain cannot profit from Turning Wheel - and Iron Wheel is not that useful for a ranged monk. Bummer!!!

Two observations so far.

 

1 - Disengagement doesn't seem to be a thing any longer in turn-based? I seem fully able to run a wounded character away from an enemy without him taking a free swing. That can't be right?

 

2 - Duration for abilities can be strange, I had a priest that acted at the end of the round, dropped her Sunbeam spell, and flanked/blinded the target. And then the round ended and those debuffs fell off. Maybe duration should end at the same initiative number in the next round as they started in the previous round?

I'm playing real-time with pause, but now for some reason the keyboard shortcuts for increasing and decreasing combat speed do not work. I can change combat speed by dragging the needle with the mouse, but this is unfortunately quite tedious, I'm used to changing it up and down all the time and this has unfortunately made the game quite unplayable for me at the moment. Occasionally, the needle indicates the wrong combat speed as well. Is there any way to revert to the previous version on Steam?

Maia's quest is still bugged if you botch her missives (letting the stalker alone) I'm still getting the bad ending of Por Maje :(

It seems I was a bit hasty, the keyboard shortcuts still work, but the indicator needle does not move in response. Still kinda annoying, but should hopefully be easy to fix.

Why is .23 not on the GOG beta channel?  You know, GOG has a beta channel just like Steam.  It works fine as far as I can see.  I'd love to test the beta (since I have finished D: OS and D: OS 2) and could possibly supply some useful information.

 

Never mind! Coming through on the GOG beta channel now!  Thanks! (Actually, I have GOG setup to deliver the latest patch, whether beta or normal release.)

It's very well known that I don't make mistakes, so if you should stumble across the odd error here and there in what I have written, you may immediately deduce--quite correctly--that I did not write it... :biggrin:

I played a little of TFS today and Ydwin's lines were voiced so I guess it means so are narrator's :)

AFAIK it's a randomized outcome for Port Maje stalker.

Really loving turn-based mode so far. Was afraid it would turn into a slog, but that's far from the case early game when upkeep is low. Only issue I've run into is when using stealth and pausing rapidly while attempting to engage an enemy. You can prevent the start-of-combat trigger and break enemy AI, preventing them from doing anything.

I had started testing Beguiler again a week or so ago to re-evaluate it and it's working as intended. It was just a tooltip issue, stemming I suspect from the Soul Whip bonus being split in two.

Did this patch receive some major optimization? The game runs so far shockingly well. I even tuned up some graphical option without a dip in the framerate.

We did do some optimizations since the last patch - I'm glad they are making a difference!

Yeah, there's a bug where they'll complain when you mouse over an enemy during combat. It'll be fixed in the 4.1.1 hotfix.  In the meantime you could zero out the Game option "Voice Frequency" if it's very annoying.
