Hey everyone!

As it's been a year since the release of Deadfire, we have come to the point of moving on to newer projects and ramped down the Deadfire staff as a result.  We will no longer be fixing any issues we deem to be non-game breaking.  At the moment, we are only aware of a few potential issues for some users that can prevent player progression and have come up with solutions to these issues.  If we find that there are any progression breaking issues going forward that prevent gameplay, we will look into finding workarounds or potentially hot fixing them and adding those to this list.  The following are the known issues and their workarounds.

  • Players with general performance issues, freezes, or crashes, we have compiled a list of diagnostic steps that have worked to varying degrees for other users. You can find the list with some instructions listed below.
    1. Reduce graphics settings

    2. Restart game

    3. Delete or move excessive saves

    4. Disable Unity Console mod - if applicable

    5. Remove Unity Console mod - if applicable

    6. Verify Integrity of Game Files - Steam - GOG

    7. Reinstall Deadfire

    8. Change PhysX settings to GPU instead of Auto

    9. Install the Special K mod with recommended settings

    10. Update graphics drivers

    11. Update operating system

    12. Check for faulty RAM - Steps to do this can be found here

    13. Roll back graphics drivers

    14. Reinstall operating system

  • Mac users who are having graphical issues where large sections of the map are white, it has been found that if you save the game and load the new save file, the map will go back to normal.
  • Players have reported Nungata disappearing from Serpent's Crown and being unable to turn in quests.  This is not a bug as she leaves the area during the quest The Final Maneuver and will return to her normal location when that quest is resolved.

If you run into an issue different than the ones listed above that prevents you from being able to continue your adventure through the Deadfire, please feel free to let us know in an email and attach any screenshots, output_log.txt files, save files, and crash logs that may assist us in helping to resolve the issue.  Should you need information on how to obtain those files, you can find instructions here.  Please send these emails to support@obsidian.net and we will do what we can to get you back on track.

We at Obsidian want to send our heartfelt thanks to this wonderful community for being so supportive of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire!  We hope you will continue to enjoy Deadfire for many years to come and hope to see you in the next great Obsidian adventure!

So when eventually the console port is released, how will patches be handled?  If a non-game-breaking bug is fixed for the console version, will that fix be ported to the PC version and a new bugfix release version issued?  Or will console/PC gradually diverge?

Unless there's a radical departure from how it's been done in the past, the console port is Team Paradox, not Team Obsidian.

Versus Evil in this case. Afaik they don't work with Paradox on Deadfire. But I read somewhere (Aarik on Twitter or Discord I believe) that Versus Evil is doing the port.

Excessive saves, ehh. I have 200+ at the moment, and definitely noticed a heavy degrade in save/load menu performance. But I need all of them 😋

 

Just move some to a different directory, maybe? And just alt-tab to explorer and copy-paste them in before opening the load menu if you need a specific one?

Via Versus Evil, the port is handled by Red Cerberus, who further subcontracted the development to the team at Grip Digital.  

I'm assuming they're the reason why there's a gripreferencebuild branch of Deadfire listed on SteamDB for console testing.

Yeah, I do this before starting a new playthrough. Although I haven't actually "played" since December, and have been mostly checking/testing stuff.

Since I am unable to play (due to NVidia freeze bug) a game I help fund, I do not think I will be looking at the next adventure… Sorry.

Thanks for the correction, guys.
