We have a fix and it should be in 1.04.  The issue doesn't affect the stronghold or any gameplay, it is essentially a display-only issue.  It is caused by saving and loading the game.

Anyone knows what is causing this issue so I can avoid it?

 

Probably this happens while loading a saved game.

Any update on whether this has a fix? I know it's not a class A bug but I hope it goes out with the next patch

 

 

 

 

No, but since the devs seem to have found the reason you can expect the bug to be fixed soon. Either in this week's update or the next. ;)

 

 

Is there a day for the patch? Guess or otherwise?

Does it changes the 'Days passed' number in game, or just the year? If it's just the year, I guess I can keep playing.

 

I used to write fake dates in my own journal as well just for screwing with anyone else trying to read my diary. Maybe my character does the same thing. :shrugz:

In case a save is still needed:

 

I have one here from the very first zone in the game, the Encampment.

 

My journal contains two entries:

 

Find Sparfel in year 5645 (active)

Collect Springberries in year 8467 (completed)

 

All I have done is start the game with a new character, collect everything that isn't nailed down, gone through Heodan's conversation options, and sold everything that isn't essential to Heodan up to and including my wizard's armour (because he pays top price, which is why I have around 3000cp which will surely be nice once I reach Gilded Vale), and killed the wolves.

 

It seems unlikely that you'll find a more minimalistic example than this.

 

I don't recall whether this character was started from a clean start (i.e. start POE, create character, play character) or after returning to the main menu from playing another character. A subsequent single attempt to reproduce it from a clean start (all I could be bothered to do) where I just ran and killed the wolves immediately failed to reproduce the bug.

Game version is Windows/Steam.

mainliy it effects stronghold time-releated things.

 

 

*Update*: We're able to reproduce the bug on our end.

 

Any chances that this will be solved in 1.03 ?

At this time, we're still working on this issue. Thank you guys for submitting your save files and player logs. It really helps us track down the bugs when you do.

Hello Obsidian. I can confirm that patch v1.03 did not resolve this issue in the journal. I will attempt to upload my savegame (if you still need it) when I'm able to (at work currently).

Hello BMac,

 

Thanks for responding. It looked like a display issue. It is humorous. Man, it took me a really long time to complete some of these quests ;) And, in some cases, I went back in time. Now that's some dedication!

 

Cheers!

Great news ;)

 

Will the year be fixed after loading a game, or we need to start anew?

I'm using the beta patch right now and it seems to have stopped the years growing but doesn't seem to have had them set to the correct 2723 year. Hopefully the final patch will revert those dates. I mean I'm not a programmer but couldn't you say Check how many days have passed in game. If that number is less than 365, set year in journal entries to 2723 and have it run this only once.

Did the beta fix the problem retroactively?

Yes it seems. That way. The first beta stopped my dates from growing and all new ones had the right time but beta had seems to have them all in the right year

My journal dates are still bugged, even after beta 2.

I recently checked and the years are still in tens of thousands... so no fix in 1.04

It's fixed for me. I had to create a new save post-update and then reload it.
