Hey, everyone. the 1.05 patch (Build 567) is now live on Steam. We are packaging everything up for GOG and Origin, so those builds should be updated in a day or two.

 

Some highlights from 1.05 include:

  • You can now rename save games.
  • You can now change the portrait and sound set of characters from the character sheet. Click on the gear icon to open the customization window. You can only use this feature on player characters and hired (non-companion) characters.
  • New Stash sorting. You can now sort stash by item type, enchant score, and sell value.
  • Added a News Feed on the main menu to keep you informed on patches and Kickstarter updates.
  • Added a new color for unique items in the inventory.
  • Added a new hotkey for switching weapon sets on selected characters.
  • You can now bind extra mouse buttons to Ability hotkeys.
  • There's a new option in the Difficulty settings to reset newly recruited companions to level 1 (without losing the experience) when they get added to the party for the first time. This will allow you to level up companions to your liking.

 

For the full patch notes on 1.05, please go here.

 

During this patch we needed to change around our Steam depot structure. Most of you should be unaffected by these changes, but if you have problems please report them in this thread. You can also go to that thread for an explanation of the Steam depots and why we needed to change them.

 

Enjoy!

Patch downloaded automatically on Steam, tried to start the game and it fails. Said something about "there should be a data file next to the executable".

Did verification of files, now re-downloading 5,6gb worth of files. Good times :p

We have been unable to reproduce this problem internally. Not sure what would cause it. Please let me know if after a build verification it works correctly.

Yeah, took me longer than expected to verify the files due to connection issues but it seems to be working now. Launched fine after the download and loaded up saves and such as well and the build version is correct.

Feel free to PM me if there's any questions related to the problem.

I also have the  "there should be a data file next to the executable" bug.

 

I think your depot change changed the file location..but Steam doesn't recognize the new configuration.

 

Aka...we have to redownload :(

The exact error is:

 

"Data folder not found"

"There should be 'PillarsOfEternity_Data'

folder next to the executable"
 
In a popup after you try to launch the game.
 
Windows 7 here too.

How much space is the game supposed to take from the HD? 14gb? Mine is currently 27gb.

And there is this folder called EmptySteamDepot that's basically a copy of PillarsofEternity_Data by the looks of it. Same files, same size, explains the sudden extra 13gb of HD claimed.

I assume this is related to the problem we were having, since the actual folder was missing for some reason?

I read that there was going to be a fix for crashes when transitioning. An option for anti-aliasing would be available to toggle in options. It's not there. Can this be fixed? I am using the " ` " "msaa 0" work-around right now.

I'm sure there is a very good reason for this, but why can't you change portraits of companion characters along with all of the rest?

I assume for RP reasons.

Do you happen to have Pillars installed in a strange location? We were able to see the error, but only after we manually moved the PIllars folder into another location.

 

The EmptySteamDepot folder is really strange and shouldn't be there. Is that folder in the root of the game directory?

People want to change the class, attributes, portraits of the premade NPCs. Next they'll also want to change their names, too. Actually, that might be fun...

I believe you can.

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Pillars of Eternity\PillarsOfEternity_Data\data\art\gui\portraits\companion <- is the folder that has the companion portraits. I'm sure you could just switch them out with whatever portrait you'd rather prefer.

Yeah, this works, too.

No, I have Pillars of Eternity installed on my game drive like all the other games through Steam. So nothing unusual about the location.

Yeah, the EmtpySteamDepot is at the root and it was there when I first patched the game. The PillarsofEternity_Data was missing, or I assume it was because that's what the error was about. The EmptySteamDepot is exactly the same size and seems to hold the same files as well.

Based on the dates however, it seems that the EmptySteamDepot file holds some of originally installed files as they have dates that go back to March 26th.

Soooo.. the old data folder was.... renamed? I don't know.

Is it safe to delete now though? It does eat  quite a bit of space.

I'm guessing it's supposed to be a temp backup during the update.

I had the same folder, though it was empty.

It should be safe to delete.
