      The Long Dark Sandbox **May 2017 Test Branch** [OPT-IN, FORUM PASSWORD, SPOILERS]   05/19/2017

      Hello community, 

      As we did with the December 2016 Sandbox Update, we are implementing a TEST BRANCH for The Long Dark's MAY/JUNE 2017 Update, FAITHFUL CARTOGRAPHER. This reflects the fact that we have a huge diversity of players on a variety of hardware configurations, and as a small studio we just can’t test them all! 

      The idea here is to provide an early version of the next update, about a week or so before we’d like to launch it officially in the Release branch (i.e. where you are currently getting it), so that we get some extra time to find bugs, crashes, and any other issues before it goes lives for the rest of our community. 
        >>> IF YOU DO NOT OPT-IN TO THE TEST BRANCH, YOU WILL NOT GET IT. I.e. You will not get the Test Branch build "by accident". This should help keep spoilers to a minimum. Here on Official Forums the Test Branch Discussion subforum requires a password to access. The password is: test_branch
      Some details. READ THESE CAREFULLY: 

      * The Test Branch is for STEAM ONLY. It is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. 
      * The Test Branch is full of SPOILERS. If you don’t want to see what’s in the next update, stay out of the Test Branch and all its discussions. 
      * The Test Branch is a tool for us to find issues with Work In Progress features. We’re primarily looking for feedback on bugs, crashes, and any major balancing issues. 
      * When reporting on bugs or issues, please use the appropriate TEST BRANCH sub-forums on Steam and in our Official Community. DO NOT DISCUSS TEST BRANCH FEATURES outside the Test Branch sub-forums. Those posts will be moved or deleted. 
      * When reporting on bugs or issues, please use the posted bug submission procedures. This will help the development team filter the feedback, eliminate duplicates, and in general ensure we can act on the feedback in a more timely fashion. 

      Our hope is that this new Test Branch process will allow us to ensure we can continue to put out stable Sandbox updates well into the future. 

      We’re very hopeful that the people who choose to opt-in to this Test Branch will approach this as a way to help ensure the updates are as smooth and stable as possible, and not use the Test Branch discussion as a forum to lobby for or against certain features or content. 

      As always, The Long Dark is a community-informed, not community-driven, project. We look forward to enlisting your help in identifying whatever issues we’ve missed in our own internal testing! 

      For more details, please check out the TEST BRANCH discussion forums [SPOILERS!] http://hinterlandforums.com/index.php?/forum/81-test-branch-spoilers/ (See password info above for access)

      Thank you!

  1. Hey Steve, I think since the game is still in development and at a fast paced development with a small team the likelihood documentation is small. Also I think that they are constantly tweaking how these things work from version to version so one month they may test something out and It may never reappear again. I would say continue to make your observations, tests and post the results. It the least it might get some discussion going.
  2. you can find it at the top of the keyboard pictured here.
  3. I'm pretty sure that is by design, you can randomly get a sprain and the steeper the angle the better the chance.
  4. Might want to try verifying your game cache: viewtopic.php?f=56&t=7888 if that doesn't help post the output log and see if the devs can't find something.
  5. When its on the ground Right Click it and it will turn green. You have to drop it from your inventory first.
  6. Thanks so much for letting us in on the process. It has been amazing journey so far and I can't wait to see whats next!
  7. No worries, you were not the first :]
  8. Do you mean "Posts"?
  9. You are right Bill and I apologize to all those who have achieved high rankings on legitimate runs.
  10. Problem is people who hack the game are instantly going to screw them up again. Guaranteed once the leader boards are reset the very next day somebody will have a 1000 day run which is of course impossible in 24 hours of real time. I know those dudes think its cool but it just ruins it for everyone else. the best thing is to compete with yourself and your friends because usually the guy at the top is actually a loser.
  11. Typically start a different thread for each bug. Also check to see if the bug has been reported already. Floating ice around the lookout has been reported. Thanks for contributing :]
  12. The screenshots are taken as .png which are not compressed. The easiest way I have found is to open the in screenshot in Windows Paint and "Save as" a .jpg. It takes the file size down quite a bit.
  13. If you watched the major update video from the staff then you would hear their promise of a new level (finally! And out of how many more to come? Come on, how big is this game really?) Doh Never made it that far into the video apologies.
  14. Where did anyone promise a new region?
