Hi all,

Most of you guessed today would be release day, and it looks like you were right! The Patch is scheduled to go live at 12pm PT, but please don't panic if you can't get it right away, it can sometimes take a few mins from the flicking the switch to you guys seeing it on your consoles.

As always, do NOT post bugs in these threads, they will get lost and I can't chase loads of bugs in the one thread amongst discussion, please post them in the Console Bug Reports section using the guide provided and I will get to them asap.

I know a lot of you are waiting on info about A15 as well as bugs not listed below you would like an update on etc, so before you ask, when I have this info I will share it with the community as a whole asap.

Thanks,
Clare

So here's a quick question for you Clair. If someone has a idea for a possable item or new buildable structure, etc. Say for example a storage crate for clothing/armor. Where would be the best topic to post this so that it can be seen by the devs?

Nice.... Something to look forward too now when I get to log on again. Crosshairs you can actually see!!!! Not sure those other ones were issues for my game as of yet but I'm sure one of those instances has bugged us out.

Not sure it's the minibike fix you were hoping for, but you can still hope! Personally I haven't lost one yet.

Wish I knew about the meat and hide exploit before they fixed it.

I liked standing dead Zombies, you could get a good close look at them, without being whacked, glad I did while I could.

For suggestions etc, pop them in general discussion, I gave a list I update regularly and starting a new post is a great way to see if others agree it's a good idea or not. However I recommend also searching to make sure you're not doubling up on another suggestion.

There is another section called "Pimp Dreams" TFP may frequent in PC, but I wouldn't recommend posting console suggestions there.

Hey Claire and team, any way u guys can fix the issue with the map not loading correctly. I play as a client with my chick hosting (we're in the same house) it kind of sux. When I open my map for the first time my map is all grey and takes a minute to open fully. When it finally opens fully, most of the map that My character's not standing on is open but, all scrambled and digitalized. Anyways luv the game keep up the good work

The workbench he is refferjng to is a better workbench system where you have to use it for certain items, you can level up your workbench, some recipes are different from your backpack compared to workbench, etc etc.

Well, a good idea is a good idea whether you're playing the game on a PC or a toaster. *shrug*
Still - it would help mentioning that you're playing on console because the context is important.

The rather extensive rebalancing of A15 is not going to be in there. I'd probably know about that.
You can't "just make a console patch". That's a very time-consuming endeavor so it makes sense to wait until the dust settles and then only put the "finished" balance values in a patch.
It's not an issue of TFP hating consoles. =P

Very exciting. We will get more content when it's polished, balanced and perfected on PC. A15 is still being worked on and ironed out on October and things will change.

So why would they port something that may change to only have to do all that work all over again. It makes sense, originally they nerfed spikes to only little slow down and very little damage. They changed that back to spikes kill, if they had ported it immediately they would have had to port it right back to the newer version. So be glad we will get it when it's done, it actually speeds things up in the end. Be patient.

Clare, Gazz and team, thank you for the continued updates, support and fixes. I look forward to new content as well but I will take any bug fixing patch I can get. Anything is good at this point as it means we have not been forgotten and likely won't be.

Playing patch 1.0.6.0

So far so good. Seems there is less stuttering when it auto saves which is a real improvement, however the controls were unresponsive the first time I loaded a game - I force quit and it reloaded successfully. Thanks for the update!
Note: multiplayer is still not working but as that wasn't amongst the listed fixes I wasn't expecting there to be any improvement here.

I'm playing MULTIPLAYER just fine.

Some people have a lot of issues, I play alone in a private and have pretty minimal issues, j joined a friend the other day and the whole game just took a s**t on my screen...

I had an area about 80x80 blocks I could walk and nothing else would spawn, I was dying of hunger and starvation yet couldn't access boxes, I could see my friend but they would be running and my screen would only update their position once every 2/3 seconds... They couldn't see the hundreds of spikes I placed... The list goes on...

Yeah multiplayer is broken for most

IBKillingfools
10-05-2016, 10:30 AM
What I'm getting at is that's probably the reason they are having issues nailing it down.

And just because the notes don't say anything, maybe some of the multiplayer issues are based around some of the little things they did fix.

Nah I think something like that would be part of a bigger picture thing... A big update to tackle a few things at the same time to solve the problem

Eg the amount of data required by the coding etc might be to much for most peoples internet, they would need to clean that up along side other bugs at the same time to fix it... That's just my theory

My interwebs are not the fastest most greatest. Think I average a 25mbs wifi not sure the upload speed. And my daughter is constantly streaming videos and whatever garbage preteens do online these days. Either way, to kill the bug you must track it down and exterminate with extreme prejudice. If not everyone is effected, it's probably making that part extremely difficult.

While some say they can play MP on xbox one there are plenty that can't. Me and several of my friends can't play anything but SP. It's not our ISP or NAT as we can play other MP games without any issues. The game was fine before the first patch and MP has gotten worse with ever patch after. Here's a clue devs... people who have disk copies seem too play MP fine.. while those of us that have digital copies can't play MP at all. Hire a new team, I've never seen a game so riddled with problems. It's not even EA. At least it's not advertised as EA and change the store page while your at it from MP-Co op to single player. Would have saved me money if I'd seen that.

My friend and I both own digital copies, and aside from the game crashing every 2 - 4 hours, we play together perfectly fine, even with the corny little nonsense such as game stutter. So I'm not sold on the MP problem being digital-only.

No doubt... Your frustration is justified. ♥♥♥♥, I get pissed just when it disconnects after a couple hours, so I can only imagine how you and many others must feel when it disconnects after only a few minutes. If it's taking them this long to fix it, the bug must be pretty difficult to not only pin down, but to fix, seeing as how some people have relatively few problems with mp, while others can hardly play it

Yeah my MP doesn't work either and I'm digital copy. It hasn't really after patch one like most but I do see some people are able to play MP. I think that's why they request us to fill out the form because finding the one coded error that makes some work and some not work is probably harder than just fix it but I'm no expert. I'm still sticking with the game for now. I love the idea and game but I'd love it even more if I got MP back. Good luck to the team.

Hey guys,

First all, I haven't been seeing too many of the bugs so good job. It's a great game. My question is I know that pc is on 15.0 or whatever, so does console have to go from 1.0.6.0 to 15.0 or is it like "patch 10" would be alpha 15? Guess I been wondering that. Just curious.

IBKillingfools
10-06-2016, 03:10 AM
No. We do not have to go thru that many patches. As of right now we may or may not be getting any of the new features. But I would think that they SHOULD hook us up with some for staying loyal fans of the game after all the crap we have to wait thru for some of us. I am in the same boat as you and am not as effected as others. Thankfully.

From now on I'm not holding my breath. We were supposed to get the see for miles kinda ordeal, venders, traders, new crafting stuff, you name it that pc a15 yas. Well I'm disappointed in TFP now. Seriously you shouldn't have gone with telltale, they're just money hungry idiots. Keep me updated if you're actually going to give us what you promised.....:mask:

- - - Updated - - -


Don't be sorry! Speak your mind, let TFP know that they made a HUGE mistake on going with tell♥♥♥♥faces or TSF for short. I'm only being nice here by the way. And yeah we'll be getting news out to a lot of people console and pc about how we're all getting ♥♥♥♥ed now. And watch, in a day or two, my posts are going to be deleted. lmao lame.



Were exactly did you see this so called promise, the patch notes clearly stated what the patch was to cover and they delivered.

Hi all,

Most of you guessed today would be release day, and it looks like you were right! The Patch is scheduled to go live at 12pm PT, but please don't panic if you can't get it right away, it can sometimes take a few mins from the flicking the switch to you guys seeing it on your consoles.

As always, do NOT post bugs in these threads, they will get lost and I can't chase loads of bugs in the one thread amongst discussion, please post them in the Console Bug Reports section using the guide provided and I will get to them asap.

Have we told you lately that you all are the best? All of your feedback, ideas, and bug reports have been extremely helpful! Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us!

all your ideals? really i have yet to see anything new in the game as far as zombies, stores, clothig, food, weapons, new stuff to build, books, food, drink the list could keep going but iam sure you get the point you might want to send this to mad mole or whoever this is getting old with the patches for each new patch something breaks in the game and there is hardly any new patch that has fixed multiplayer game.

a friend of my said they added oil in the game now but i have yet to find it also doesnt show up on the list of things thats been added online the game as it is very boring specially when your playing by yourself had i known they wouldnt pay as much attention as they do the pc version i wouldnt have got it i wish i could get my money back

i want to know why is it hard to make and add more content and really fix alot more bugs. in the game ark survival evolved the game was like 7 days to die the only difference in this they not only fix majorly alot of bugs but added a ♥♥♥♥oad of stuff

the fun pimps dont listen to anyone honestly iam surprised people still want to play this

Yeah its a great game thats sure. But im pissed off the console version. The same with minecraft, terraria etc. The ♥♥♥♥ paystation isnt getting updates so far, it always thakes months or longer and than it is not the same stand as the pc is. or look at some differences wtf is goin on? Paystation only contents or pc dont matter. Its all 4 the money. If there dosent comes a update with new things up to 31.12.16 i quit the game. There is no fu information whats comming or what is not comming ... not with me there so many games, i wont waste my time with waiting. Sure everything needs time to finished but deer devs TALK TO UR FANS !!!! WHAT IS PLANNED 4 THE GAME AND WHEN WILL IT RELEASED? sometimes i think ur only 3 guys they working on the game ...

Minibike disappearances, including all items on them are a real problem. Also where are the traders(traitors)????!

Hi Clare. Please try your hardest to get whoever you need to, to agree to port A15 to the ps4. I'm poor, I have a crappy laptop from 3 years ago that can't run 7dtd without lagging and overheating and I won't be able to afford a decent laptop anytime soon. So, for the rest of us living in this semi-poverty limbo, our ps4's/xbone's are our best chance to enjoy this game fully. Alpha 15 sounds like a fun time.

I agree with this guy I had this game on pc first but I don't see why the big separation- ANY FAN that paid money for the game (and its more expensive on console especially if you factor in DLC content) should be treated equally console and pc all this dividing up on forums and slow content release on console Is not fair please try to work together with the fun pimps or something its to slow on console!!

Will we be getting anything new anytime soon like weapons gear maybe a vehicle that's not so mini and can carry other players like a truck has a lot of storage and eats gas like crazy or a car or something these would be cool don't let PC have all the fun give us something they don't have yet also updates on the maps if possible that would be awesome if you guys take my ideas into consideration

It is amazing how quickly people are to post their rage about what the pc folks are getting. The pc folks have been waiting for years to get where they are today, we have only had a few months on console and the jealousy is unreal. I would love new content to go along with this awesome game, but let them get it running correctly and efficiently before they focus on new variables. They just released alpha 15 stable and there are still issues that are being worked on in it. If people would take the time to read the posts about the future of the console game, they would probably have their questions answered, or at least settle them down enough to keep them from posting the same questions repeatedly. I hope that someone takes the time to read this, but they probably won't. I put my two cents out there. Enjoy.

That's like saying a old man had to wait 50 years to see a flat screen TV and a newborn should have to wait a while until he can :) ..

No but foreal I don't care if we have to wait I would just like some kinda info what we will get , what they are working on and some kinda ETA like a couples months or a year , Or is the console just fix problems and no new content or are we going to have to pay for DLCs ?

I am hoping that we don't have to wait 3 years for some of the current content we are seeing in the pc section; I am just saying that they just released alpha 15 stable, so it would only make sense that it will take more time to get it to console. These are copied from madmole's post about what the future holds for the console version. This is the same information that was linked to further up in this thread, I just took the liberty of copying his statements to save people the trouble of clicking a link.

"We hope to do a full port when PC is gold. Telltale wants to do more select feature ports along the way which we are working on. So you'll get certain features in the upcoming months, and later hopefully a full final PC port." Madmole also replied with "To be fair console got most of alpha 15 first. All the hitching, the bug fixes came to console first. PC guys didn't come crying when console got exclusive DLC's and were getting patches and loads of bug fixes first. There were over 600 bugs fixed in patch 2 that PC A14 had in it. So the way its going to work is we'll be adding new features to pc, then porting select ones to console, while mostly working on A16. So we're spending a few days a week on console porting, and a few days a week on new PC features for A16."

"So everyone is getting stuff, all the time. Now lets all get along. You console guys can participate in these A16 discussions just like everyone else can, knowing it will most likely come to your platform at some point. But this forum is for the PC version, so lets keep the console chatter to a minimum."

I know that he does not give a timeline as to when to expect new content, but it is stated that it is coming. At the moment, I think that is the most information that has been given about what the future holds for updating the console version.

mein Kollege und ich haben das Problem dass wir überhaupt nicht in den Multiplay kommen ( Xbox One) . jedes mal wenn wir versuchen einem Spiel beizutreten, dauert es ewig bis er geladen hat und wenn dann endlich mal "Spiel wird geladen" angezeigt wird, wird die Verbindung unterbrochen oder das Beitreten ist fehlgeschlagen. Liegt das irgendwie an uns oder haben noch ein paar mehr das Problem ? andere können anscheinend online spielen, da ich auch schon online nach nem Random Spiel gesucht hatte und anscheinend auch beigetreten bin, da mich die Hoster der Spiele mich angeschrieben haben warum ich denn beitrete und direkt wieder raus gehe.
Es wäre echt toll wenn das mal behoben werden könnte, da es ziemlich langweilig wird wenn man ständig alleine spielen muss, und Coop ist auch nicht immer möglich.

Hi Fenrir,

Please post in English on the forums so both the community and the moderators can read what you post.

There is a current persisting issue with multiplayer that the team are working on. If you wish to report issues in the future however, please do not post in threads like this, it will get lost, please post in the "Console Bug Reports" section.

Thanks,
Clare

I hope it will not take much longer time. :)

Clare, can we please get an ETA on when the POI bug will be fixed? Please put your foot down and stand up for the community that you lead. Being unable to answer anyone's questions almost every time is helping no one, including you. If that sounds mean it's not supposed to, encouraging is more like it

I honestly think Clare is doing a fantastic job keeping us informed. It is rare to find a game forum where you can get some kind of a response in a reasonable time. And even more rarer to find a game company that puts this much work into fixing and upgrading their game.

So good to hear that the MP fix is being recognised by the team as important for a lot of players. Are we looking at days or weeks before we get their status report. Honestly, at this point, I'd just like a timeframe for a likely fix, even if it means waiting another month (or two) for the release. Thanks for your time.
