      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. Might be worth trying this as well http://steamcommunity.com/app/305620/di ... 935391633/ Jeremy
  2. Can you send use your Save folder please. Jeremy
  3. It was a bit late coming out of Cert. Should have gone live in the evening yesterday. Jeremy
  4. Hmm, strange I'll check it out. Jeremy
  5. This should actually be fixed in the Update that just got released. You can take off the -force-d3d9 as you won't need that anymore. Jeremy
  6. I find that so weird it thinks that it's a controller :lol: When the update comes out, let me know if this still comes up, I'm hoping the controller changes we made will maybe prevent this from occurring. Jeremy
  7. We've been having some xbox instability issues since last update. We believe we've resolved this issue in the coming update. Jeremy
  8. Minor issue, but still one that should be fixed, as z fighting can be very annoying and distracting. Jeremy
  9. This is fixed in the next update. Jeremy
  10. The wildlife will spawn before the bodies disappear in most cases. So not really useful as a timer. This also isn't a bug and is by design. If you leave some rabbits laying around and only harvest the skin and guts, then it will freeze and slowly decay over the course of a couple days. this allows you or a wolf to walk on by and harvest it at a later time. This can be useful for bears as they have a lot of meat and you probably can't carry it all in one go. Jeremy
  11. This has been reported a couple times now, it's not that it was forgotten it's actually because it's using the same interiors as the fishing cabins. So when you enter it it will say that it is a fishing cabin. This will change eventually but it's not to high on the list. But should be cleared up by the time we final the game. Jeremy
  12. TBH I think the recommended and required on the store page are probably a little outdated now and may need an update. We've added so much since that was put in that I believe the game is a bit more demanding than it was a year ago. That said I do think you should still be able to run it with those specs. Could you attach a output_log.txt file when you crash next and I'll take a look and see if I can see if anything about the game is causing the crash. You can find the log here: C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\TheLongDark\tld_data Jeremy
  13. Seems like an issue with the pathing, We've updated a lot of the pathing in all regions so hopefully they will stop doing this in the next update. For now though, free meat. Jeremy
  14. Could you attach your Player.log file please. after you crash like this next. It can be found here: Library\Logs\Unity Library is hidden by default, you can access it by going to the Finder > Go > Hold Alt/Option and Library will appear in the drop down menu. Jeremy
  15. I think when an arrow breaks it chooses a random condition, it's a different condition because it's considered a different item than the arrow that you fired. Though I agree that it seemingly out of nowhere goes from 5% to 24% does seem a bit against nature. I'll pass it along maybe we can make some changes on how that's relayed. Jeremy
