Finally, v1.03 is up in the PSM store and early reports are positive that the mysterious crash bug no longer occurs. But we’re not out of the woods yet as the original cause of the bug was never found, there was only evidence to suggest that smaller loading sequences would prevent it. So a few of the larger areas were split up and that seems to have worked.
The other bugs in the game have been addressed. Unfortunately, some new bugs were created:
Fixed as of Version 1.04
1.) The Desert Skags, a group of NPCs in Swellsville will not be able to find their dialogue. If you try to talk to them they’ll spit out an error message.
2.) Using the Vantage ‘Counter’ will crash the game. This is a vantage that Doc can learn from the Fedora hat. Fortunately, the learning rate is only x5 so I hope most players will have moved on to another hat before learning it. The bad part is that unless a player is reading this it will not be apparent why their game is crashing. Enemies can still use ‘Counter’ without any problem.
If the game crashes for any other reason, rather than the app just closing, users will get some kind of error message. If this happens please take a picture and send it to me.
But there is also a new feature implemented in the game now. If a character falls in battle (and a teammate still hasn’t) they can now eventually self-revive (provided they are not fully wounded). It takes a while, about the equivalent of charging a 20 power action, and you’ll still get a wound, so it’s best to still avoid losing characters as much as possible.
Okay, now I hope people can enjoy the game as intended!
