Please take a look at the long paragraph at the end of the patch note. Basically, a bug was found that can only be fixed with a restart but the bug itself is not game-breaking.
What has been restored/added:
The village is life is now accessible, provided that you completed the “boat repair” guild quest.
A guild quest “Loud neighbor again” restored.
A guild quest “Red heads” restored.
A new side quest “The creep part 1” added. This is a grand(meh) quest involving a creep who goes around the world for upskirt shots. The first part begins in Eton.
Tier 2 gears for mages have been added in Eton mage shop.
Below is a list of changes/fixes
- There appears to be a bug where Maco’s IQ attribute gets broken and reverts to a low value (99 in my save). I’ve investigated this and it appears that stats cap appears to be the cause.
Once an attribute goes beyond 200, it reverts to 99 or 100 and its cap becomes 100.
Increasing stats cap in the engine options did not seem to fix this and 199 appears to be the hard limit because once it reaches a value of 200, that particular attribute gets bugged.
Some quest dial choices awards attribute increases and this was the cause.
This has forced me to rework dialog choice rewards. While a restart is required to fix broken attributes, it is not a game breaking bug, meaning you are not required to restart.
Maco’s IQ is the only attribute affected by this bug as it was the most common dialog reward. You will be stuck at her IQ being 99 only (original is 192) but it shouldn’t affect her ice magic too much further you advance the game.
If her IQ value is fine in your save, there is nothing to worry about as this patch removes problematic codes.
I do need to rethink about how dialog rewards work but that’s why this game is in early access.
