If one creates a custom formation for their party, said formation works for the entirety of the play session.


However when one saves the game then exits (crashes :D ) the game, upon loading the save, characters get arranged in a different, non-default formation that doesn't match which that was set by the user.


My custom formation :


 M R

 W P


With T = Tank, M = Monk PC, R = Rogue, W = Wizard, P = Priest


Their formation after I load the game :








Note that quicksaving/quickloading is not enough to replicate the problem, you need to exit-crash the game.

Hey dam,


Thanks for the info! As someone who often makes glass cannon characters, having them default to the front of the party formation each time a save is loaded definitely stinks and I feel your pain >.<. This is an issue we are currently tracking internally. Hopefully we can get a fix in for a future beta build. Thanks again for the feedback and for playing Pillars!

I have the same issue with custom formation not being saved after reload.
