  1. Yeah, that's why I play Custom game mode without wolves and bears. I got tired of they always flee (Pilgrim) or always attack (all the other game modes). Others may have different experiences of course, but this is what I saw.
  2. This is a good idea, though I can't see loading times increase - maybe because I have the game on SSD. But what I see (only in Milton Town so far) that the Region has been changed here and there, some of my past paths are blocked now by rocks. Maybe this was one of the reasons of the warning to move stuff from some regions?
  3. Just took a quick look into it, and looks pretty. You've done something tweaking with the graphics as well. Nice job, thank you!

    Thanks, that was that I thought of.

    Just to make it clear: upon the coming REDUX launch, will there be changes to the Survival Mode gameplay too? (I think of the aforementioned developments/improvements.)
  6. Unreachable box?

    Hi All, just a quick question. I'm in the Hibernia Processing at Desolation point. There's a metal box seems to be unreachable. Has anyone met this situation? Is that box reachable? Thx.
  7. Can't report Bug

    Yes, it's working now. Thx.
  8. Can't report Bug

    Hi All, it happened to me today (not the first time since I use Windows 10) that the game crashed and made a dump file. I wanted to send the files to the Bug Report, but when I clicked the "+" sign (Create new case) nothing happened. I tried it with Firefox, Edge and Internet Explorer. I was logged in to the forums each time. Any hint someone? Thx.
  9. Save Button! - reason: Windows 10

    Thanks, but I got a better idea from the old days, when Windows 7 was new, and some XP or 98 software wasn't able to run or crashed. So, I switched TLD.EXE into Compatibility Mode (Windows7) and so far it seems to be working. The only thing that makes me worry is that Windows 10 is 3 years old now, and as far as I remember the 3 year-old XP or the 3year-old Windows 7 was OK... Take care all.
  10. Save Button! - reason: Windows 10

    Hi, thanks. I never had viruses, I knew of at least, not under 7, and so far, either under 10. I always use antivirus software and avoid know dangerous webpage types. The crashes (those I could inspect) came from some kind of memory access conflict. I would think that the structure of the 10 is very different from the previous Windows editions, and this may be hard to follow in some ways. I also have a video editing software (commercial) and when exporting I switch on VGA acceleration, I get a blue screen and then system reboot. These two are the only I experienced problems with, but they are pretty important for me.
  11. Hi Folks, I seriously think that this 3 years old OS is a complete crap. I bought The Long Dark game some 2 years ago, yes, back in the wonderful early access days, and played on Windows 7. And never had crashes or other bigger problems. I bought new hardware for about 1 month now, compatible only with Windows 10 (aside from Linux, of course) and I had 7 crashes! And only two of them gave me dump to upload to TLD Bug Report. Surely, the coding guys at Hinterland have something to do as well. But I think we need "save gameplay anytime anywhere" becuase it's not a deal losing 20-40 minutes of gameplay. Or I will have to move to Linux (I have problems with other commercial softwares too, under Windows 10 anyway, but I'm not experienced Linux user). Man, I am very angry. The only thing I don't know (info nowhere to be found) if I have to buy the Linux version separatedly, or I can use my Steam PC copy. But the thing is, that I have a 309 days survival mode gameplay, and I don't want to lose it.
  12. Making Food Poisoning More Realistic

    Well, basicly I agree, but, on the other hand, it depends on one's body. When I ate something bad e.g. for breakfast I felt it within 1-2 hours and was completely through it by the evening of the next day. (Happily enough, it didn't happen to me often.) Yes, it was painful and I felt weak, with all the "usual process". And I never took antibiotics, only probiotics for the intestinal flora.
  13. Badges counter

    Hi All, I was starting a new CUSTOM game some months ago. That time I checked my badges, and Firemaster was on 75% (all the others are "fully accomplished" for about a year now). Today as I started up the game I thought I checked my badges. And the Firemaster was still on 75%. I decided to make a test, starting 70 campfires. This should add to the percentage - I hoped. No, it didn't, it's still on 75%. I can guess two: #1/ Badges counter stuck somehow. #2/ Badges counter is only for the predefined sandbox game modes. (I play only Custom games since this option became available.) My current game is at day 279, the journal says "Fires started 181" before the test and "Fires started 251" after the test. Any idea?
