Stronghold Hirelings "currently unpaid" and Treasury Bugs

Question

Hello.In stronghold screen when i click hirelings menu it says under every hireling "currently unpaid" despite having plenty of coin .after i fire them then rehire them text dissapears.But if i quit the game and then load the same save,it says "currently unpaid" again.Also guest hirelings dissapears for good if i fire them but their bonuses stays.Not sure about the last part when i fire a regular hireling stronghold's prestige and security drops but when i fire a guest hireling there is no change.So either their bonuses doesnt apply or stack even after i dissmis them.Secondly after my companions return from off screen adventures text in the stronghold screen suggest there are some rewards in the treasury but it is always empty.Sorry for english it is not my first  language.

I also have my stronghold hirelings marked as unpaid every time I restart the game. I have patch 1.05 but am continuing a game I started on patch 1.03, if this matters.

 

I've decided to keep my hirelings even though this means every time I play I have to rehire them as I've seen other players warn that otherwise they will turn on you during an attack. The reason I like to keep them is because trying to keep them all alive makes defending the stronghold more interesting. Often they kill each other ... with unnecessary last second spells ... stupid Warden of the Wilds.

As of today 2/24/2016 this bug is NOT fixed. I receive NO income on taxes, ever. I receive NO quest rewards. My treasury is permanently empty. I just downloaded an update yesterday and  it is still NOT fixed. I have 68hrs on this game and have not been able to advance past ACT II due to game breaking or frustrating bugs. I have lost count of how many times I have restarted the game. I even Deleted it and re-installed it. Every play-through is a gamble. What a waste of time. We obviously have have different ideas as to what "near future" means. Without the Treasury, the Stronghold upgrades are basically pointless.

Hello ChopShop,

 

Welcome to the forums and thanks for joining us. I'm sorry for the inconveniences, but this issue has been fixed back in June. Could you please upload a save file and an output log so I can take a look at your save? If you hirelings are unpaid, they wont be paid until the next pay period or you can just unhire them and rehire them. 

 

You can find those files by clicking on the link in my signature below.

 

Thanks!

I'm talking about the treasury bug. I don't see why I have to waste my time and give you anything! I've wasted 88hrs on a broken POS game! There is no way that you have fixed this bug. Have you ever checked Steam Forums on your own game? There are dozens of these posts. You can't behave as if this is the first time you have seen bug. So, I'm NOT creating a .zip file and creating a link to a drop box. Listen, I purchased a product from you and it did NOT work as advertised. If it was anything else other than a video game, I would have a right to return it for a return. FIX YOUR PRODUCT!

Games are complex things, and this is especially true of reactive RPGs like Pillars of Eternity. There is a reason why the two Baldur's Gate games are considered all-time classics, yet modding communities and Beamdog are still fixing myriad issues fifteen+ years later. In this case, you may be generating the exact bug, but for entirely different reasons than another user. By looking at your save file, they can hopefully recreate and identify your problem, isolate the issue, and address it for you and others. 

 

Or you could just rant and scream.

This treasury bug has been around since I first downloaded the game a year ago. I quit playing when the game was first released because of all the bugs. It's the same reason why I don't buy games still in beta. I just started playing again a few months ago, I figured a year was plenty of time to work out the most annoying and game breaking bugs, and since they had already released the expansion I was sure they would have fixed them. Well imagine my surprise when I re-download the game and my first character, which was a Ranger, did not have a pet. Even the little circle around the bottom of his portrait was gone. I tried reloading, but none of my saves had his pet in them. (restart). Next character, a  dual-wield fighter, I make it all the way to the Stronghold and suddenly I can't loot any of the sparkly loot bags dropped by the Shadows and such in the courtyard. Since I remember this same thing happening a year ago when I first purchased the game I reload from an earlier point and try again. Luckily it worked, no re-start. I continue and about the time I finish my first stronghold quest I return to my treasury and there is nothing inside the chest. ???. So I rest and wait around until the next time I collect taxes, and sure enough, nothing. I check my coins and they have not increased. So I check the Steam forums and they are chock full of people with the same issue. So I re-start. (Again) I get to the stronghold and the first time I collect taxes, nothing. I Complete a quest and no item reward in the treasury chest. I try to delve deeper into this issue and find that Obsidian has claimed to have fixed it 9 months ago. So now I have wasted $40.00 for this game and 88 hrs of my time playing it (I consider my time valuable), and countless more hours researching the bugs I keep encountering. And when I bring up this issue I'm told that I have to spend more of my time creating .zip files and attaching it to a drop box so they can "look" at my issue. NO! I'm not a developer or a beta tester. I'm a CUSTOMER! You fix your product, it is NOT up to me to waste more of my time helping you fix your product that was not ready for release. These bugs are known to the Developers and they are known to the players. (just read the forums) I'm not complaining about some strange unknown bug here. It has been going on since this game was released. So, since I paid $40.00 for a game I cannot play, I believe I have paid for my right to "Rant and Scream".

Hello ChopShop,

 

I apologize for the inconveniences, and I understand that your time is very valuable, but without uploading a save files and an output log I can't really see whats going on with your game or system. I truly want to help you and make sure your game is working correctly. 

 

By the sounds of it, you just need to verify your game cache (if you are playing on Steam) as your installation is either missing files or some of them are corrupted. Since these issues haven't been reported on the forums for quite some time.

 

I'll do my best to assist you with the information I have.

 

Your game may be out of date, we are currently on v3.01.0977.

 

If you are playing on Steam, please verify your game cache. In your Steam Library, right click Pillars of Eternity > Properties > Local Files Verify Integrity of Game Cache.

 

If you are playing on GOG, unfortunately you will have to uninstall the game and redownload the 3.01 installers.

 

If you are using GOG Galaxy, please verify/repair your game under the games configuration settings in the Galaxy Client. 

 

I hope that helps! If there is still an issue, please at upload an output log so I can take a look. (Note: You do not need dropbox to upload text files to the forums)

 

Thank you for your support.
