Hello!

 

The above is my main problem!

 

1) After having installed the patch and the Expansion (now currently have v2.00.0706 PX1), I tried to travel to Caed Nua - and the game crashed. It might be that my save is full of bugs though and the problem might be aggravated because I used the console, too (just fiddling with Godmode and attributes. And I had to use teleport once because of the 2nd problem below).

 

2) Regions I have already visited appear as new when I go back (i.e. fog of war is there again), although my diary entries still show every quest as finished. This happened a while ago (before patch 2.0, maybe even after the patch before that) and I hoped a new patch would fix it, but alas it didn't. But that's also why I don't remember if I can go back and re-do the quests (there was only one similar case to this IIRC, there was no solution though AFAIK).

 

3) I haven't noticed much else than stat bonuses from inns appearing to linger for too long (which was supposedly fixed) and Eder wanting to talk to me although he has nothing to say.

 

4) I also have to wait veeeeeeeery long (especially when I load up the first game it takes like 2 minutes) for the game to load, afterwards about 40 - 60 seconds for transitions (read Roby's post though, so hopefully that might fix it).

 

Sorry I took so long to get to you guys with this, but I thought I could get through with all of it :p

 

This .rar file contains a few save games both from 2.0 and the same from the 1.x version, as well as the oldest save game I still have. All the crash reports and the system diagnosis is in there too. Would be cool if you can figure it out, though too many problems might have come together for that to happen =D

Hello, Reever.  I see from your files that you are running the game in 32 bit mode.  This is known to cause memory issues with Unity games.  I suggest looking into this thread and following the instructions to increase your available RAM.  Please keep in mind however that we are not responsible for any changes made to your system.  Thanks for your patience and support during this issue!

I've been playing the game before indeed with more RAM, but I shut off the function after finishing my playthrough. I will try again with more RAM enabled and will let you know how it went. What about those "re-unexplored" regions, though?

Hello again, Reever.  I'm sorry I did not address that in my previous post.  We are aware of a rare bug that causes events to reset and have it entered in our database.  Update this thread as needed, and thanks again!

That's great, thanks for addressing that, although I guess that's not too high up on your priority list. I added the extra RAM, but it did not help. It seems I can travel for 2-3 maps and then the game crashes.

 

Here are the latest reports - I will start a fresh game and write here again if it works then. Though I hope I can get to play the expansion with this character.

Hello again.  Thanks for the additional information, I'll add it to our database for 32 bit users.  Cheers!

Thanks!

 

With the new patch I am able to get to the Caed Nua, but then I have the same problem as others already reported, namely that I cannot talk to the Steward at all (the mouse pointer turns to a red "forbidden" circle). Can I get the strings to the new locations and the strings for the quests? Maybe I can use the console to start the quest. Although it would be nice if we'd get a fix :)

 

I appreciate what you guys are doing, keep it up!

Update: I loaded up some older saves and lo and behold, I can click on the Steward and start a conversation - but when I get to The White March, I get a pink map and pink graphics and a green-ish menu (happens with both saves). It looks like this happened to some other users too. My Stronghold mercs also attacked me for some reason in the newer save (the Endless Paths one) I uploaded for you guys...

Here you go, hope these are helpful: Reever-Older-Saves.rar
 

Edit: And I also had the issue where enemies froze in Crägholdt or whatever that map is called.

Hello Reever,

 

Are you by chance playing the game from GoG? If so, then you need to download both patches of the game for base and PX1. Then the pink graphical errors will be cleared up. 

 

Let me know if that works

 

Thanks a bunch!

Hey, yeah, I got the GOG version! Thanks for not forgetting me! I'm just re-installing the game (with all the patches) and will add the patch for the vanilla game too. Will let you know what came out of it!

You're right, they're gone. Still didn't solve the issue with being able to talk to the Steward on my newest saves though. But I can at least play the expansion on the older ones. So thanks!
