I feel happy for all the non steam people

Recommended Posts

Gave me an good excuse to delete my ultra-boring hard (too easy) playthrough in its entirety just now. Even better, I actually managed to find one of the real endings by massacring everyone I found in defiance bay before deleting the whole thing.  :devil:  There is at least one plot critical character there if you haven´t tried it yet.

I checked through all the steam settings, I see no option to disable updates.

 

But I already got up to 90% of act 2 done ... I DONT WANT TO START AGAIN!

Steam doesn't force you to patch the game.  It didn't do anything to my save thankfully.

I think it does unless you have some setting enabled

 

 

My steam is still offline, so I'm still using the old patch.

You didnt get forced to install a patch that broke much more of the game and ruined peoples saves and characters.

 

As per this thread: https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/75207-cant-interact-with-locks-after-patch/

 

Sorry, did you say something? I couldn't hear you over the sound of my tavern-hired rogue picking a lock.

There's no stopping it!  Not possible.  If you want to play on steam it wont let you do so unless game has all current patches.  On a separate note many are playing without issue.  I wouldnt be worried tbh.

Actually it does - There is no such thing as "disabling patches" on Steam. If you're online and you attempt to run a game, it will check for the latest version and try to install it without asking you first.

 

Only way to avoid being force-patched is to go offline and stay offline until you want a patch - Or ask the developers to add in a rollback feature (or letting the game run without Steam running)

 

In 99% of cases you wouldn't want to do without those automatic patches (because you want to get in and play asap), but in the remaining 1% it's a trip to hell and back. Especially games that aren't savegame compatible across versions.

I'm so annoyed by these bugs. They haven't even fixed the reckless assault bug that I detailed in a bug report last week. Then someone makes a thread about the same issue TODAY and it gets recognized by a dev and added to their database. Seems like I'm being ignorned or just devs only read the first page of a forum.

 

I'm shelfing PoE until the expansion comes out. Going to keep playing Dota and wait for Mortal Kombat X.

 

thx obsidian. You get a negative review from me. Nice 4th place position on steam with 92% review compared to 96% cities.

 

Was hoping to play this game so I can get a break from dota, but nope, Bugsidian lives on.

Bugs...bugs everywhere.

I wish I had the GOG version instead of the Steam version at this time because the new patch made me unable to loot or open any containers. I knew I should have waited a few weeks to start a game because of bugs. That's what I get.

Or not - Earlier versions has plenty of gamebreaking bugs. This one does too.

 

You know - I think I'll pick the third door. Shelf the game until it's playable without forcing me to keep a small database of savegame backups around.

I didnt have any gamebreaking bugs before the patch, only after. 

 

You may want to give the "known issues" list a read. Plenty of things that can and will ruin your experience.

 

Crashes at the keep, stats that raise and drop permanently (ruins balance) and losing racials. Just to name a few.

More fool you.  Should keep backups of everything...especially game saves (whether backed up on a cloud service or not...I mean...how would you play if the cloud service had a failure huh?).  But you're prerogative ;)

There's a difference between saving - And saving in separate files every few minutes just to avoid losing progression because of a sudden bug.

 

Cloud? Only a fool would use the cloud. Most unstable pos on the face of the planet.

And what do you think Steam does/is huh?

 

As for the topic....for anyone who actually didn't think there would be any issues with a new patch...I'm speechless......is this all your first game or something?   Never, never....ever....install a patch the moment it is released....

 

And seriously...off you go again with your hyperbole....saving every few minutes haha....that would be called...exaggeration.

I would respond with the same response as I did in a different thread - But we can't have you going around accusing me from writing the same thing in different threads.
