Here we are again. So soon? Yes, so it is. But while patch #1 was mostly about balancing fixes, this one got pushed out sooner than normal in order to (hopefully) fix the issues a couple of you have reported with save files not showing up after a play session.
- The chest in the first room of the game can no longer be a mimic (sorry for whackin’ your ass, Tyler)
- Fixed a typo or 2 (thanks, Tyler!)
This was actually fixed in .97c, but I forgot to list it. Whoops. Well, one of em was.
- Adjusted drop rates for enemies in the Lost Cavern.
- Additionally, added Swiftstrike to Batty’s loot pool.
- Upped drop rates for Potions across all zones.
- Lowered Mimic’s drop rate of Lucky Scrolls.
- Added a fullscreen toggle in the Options menu
If it doesn’t work for you OOTB, head over to the install location and open package.json w/ Notepad and change fullscreen true to false. NOTE: When you toggle between the two, it may not update with the proper information. Leaving the options menu and going back in should show the updated text.
- Fixed an oversight where a wall could play the Battle Entrance animation in the Lost Cavern
First attempt at addressing an issue where save files could appear to be gone, but in fact, were not.
If you’ve been impacted by this issue, you can restore your save file following instructions in the discussions forum. If you see this issue crop up again, please let us know!
- Fixed an issue with weird torch passability in a section of the Traveller's Respite
That should be it for the updates today! Sorry for all the announcements! With that said, the save file issue that was reported should be resolved now, with the exception of those who already suffered from it. The fix listed in the discussion forums to restore the save file should be all that's necessary to restore the natural order. If it isn't resolved, we'll take another crack at a fix until it is. Big apologies to all those impacted by the issue.
For those who want the technical gnitty gritty, here's what happened:
The game executable is stored in a certain way to protect the assets within it, and the game loads those assets by putting them into RAM. At some point during pre-launch tests, a config file from a save got mixed into the files loaded into RAM. So, when you played the game, it would see a config file being loaded from the RAM and expect the other save files to be in the RAM as well. They weren't, and the game wouldn't know to switch sources until a file was saved to disk and reloaded. (Or at least, that's the current theory.) By changing how the game was packaged, we should see this issue resolved.
