In game broadcast about 300 MB update.

Recommended Posts

So I got an in game broadcast in my tavern saying there was a new version of the game with a 300 MB patch to download. Steam only downloaded a 1.9 MB patch (I downloaded something yesterday so I think I might have gotten through a backend download). However I don't see anything different and there aren't any new posts in the patches section. Did anyone else get this?

Probably a hotfix

That's what I was thinking too but I don't recall getting an in-game broadcast for the last one plus there was an update post in the patch notes section. Also that feels like the right size for that Q.o.L. patch along with the new shard vendor they've been talking about. To be fair I wasn't expecting that until approx. the end of March. I was just wondering if anyone else got the broadcast as well.

LOL, the next update will not be 300 MB, it'll be much bigger than that.

It was a second round of the same hotfix that was pushed out previously (for PC only, being applied to PS4 and Xbox with our update), back-end changes, and the ability to additional ways to measure performance and where things could be improved.

As for the update itself, our current goal is to have it out the first half of April. We're getting almost everything into an RPG testing state for this week and then we'll go through their feedback, iterate on it, fix any bugs that are discovered, rinse, and repeat. GDC is also next week, and a handful of us are going to be out for that week (got to make sure DD:A is going to have all the sweet advancements it can). This is all while we're also doing DD:A work, we're really putting in the hours to make sure both projects are getting love.

This patch fixed the enemy health and the stuck in dying.

 

 However the defender packs are now defective. They don’t give anything.

Yeah I also just experienced this and posted in the bugs section. I was going to purchase more but not now that they aren't giving anything. 

 

@ Lawlta, Thanks for the update.

Whew, glad the Billion HP enemies are gone but yeah, wow, defective defender packs? That should suck. Didn't have any at the time but, note to self, don't open any until it's fixed O-o.

Thanks for the update too Lawlta! Which mean we can expect the next dev log or check-in by the end of this month or early April?

They are actually giving stuff, its just that you don't see the icons of what you got when opening the pack. So you would need to double check all of your  flair and costumes to see what you actually got.

Hmmm....if that's the case, hey, at least it's not def packs not giving anything squat.

Still, I think I'll save mine for when it's fixed. As I do reroll my def packs content, I want to know whether it's giving dupes/pet stuffs or something new.

It's something we're working on a fix for, but they are correct, it's just not showing up (they are actually there). I'll keep you all updated if we have a hotfix coming out for this (and a few other things).

Thanks. Though 99% of the boxes I get are dupes... the gold is nice, but sometimes I'd like it to have a better chance at getting flairs I don't have (and dammit I wanted to make a sandwitch so much and call it Sammich).

Possibly coincidental but since yesterday's patch I'm getting more bouts of lag and twice today I've hard to force the client closed because it refused to load a map. I'll keep an eye on it over the next few weeks to see if it's just me.

@LAWLTA not coincidental and not going to leave it any longer without saying further. The lost temple map (only one affected for me) is becoming hell to play the higher I go because of lags on it that I never had prior to the latest two hotfixes. Not sure what you guys did, but it's painful rubber-banding around the map.
