My "News" in the top right corner is still only reporting that Patch 3.0 is out (2/16/2016), even though I'm running 3.02.1008 PX1 PX2. I purchased it through GOG.com and installed it manually (not through GOG Galaxy).

 

I can just turn off the "News" of course, but that defeats the purpose and I would like to be informed of actual updates. Is there anything I can do to get this fixed/updated?

 

I have uninstalled and removed all folders/files/entries I could find, reinstalled, and update is still showing as the older 3.0.

 

Thanks for any help  :)

Try to delete C:\Users\user_name_here\AppData\LocalLow\Obsidian Entertainment\Pillars of Eternity\NewsArchive.xml file. After this game should fetch the latest news. Make a file backup just in case.

Thanks for the idea Nicholas!

 

I moved the file to a separate location, restarted the game and it re-created the file,  with the same information. That was a good idea though, I thought that might do it. Thanks for trying to help!

Here are some files that may help, as per cRichards request for all issues.

  • NewsArchive.xml wouldn't attach correctly.
  • Saved game file and goglog.ini are too large to attach.

I've just checked my news and the latest entry is about 3.0 patch too. Seems like Obsidian hasn't updated it since that :-)

I just finished my first playthrough yesterday and i had a big bug in Caed Nua. After finishing almost all building-updates the game would break on me if i wanted to go to the second floor in Brighthollow, the resting place. After that i was brought back to the main menu and if i reloaded a save file without restarting the game i couldn't switch companions. The game would registred that i switch a companion but on screen he would just disappear. Restarting the game and loading an old file would fix this problem but the second floor was a no go area from that point on.

 

The bug isn't a big deal because you can just rest anywhere in CN but i didn't knew that at the time and was really frustrated when i found the bug.
