I could finally continue thanks to the patch. 


My only other look at thing I'd like them to consider is of the maps that you have explored on the big map, there should be a way to look at the big map and use it to send your squad somewhere.  Sometimes like the first cave level in dead hills, it is hard to find out where exactly you need to go to from the regular perspective. 

I realize you don't want to make the game to easy by just sending them into the fog of war places, but places you've already explored you should be able to send on the main map. 

Unless there is a way to do this and I missed it.  Because again, I never look at the tutorials, I just frickin wing it baby.

X button still stops working on the Ortago.

L1 and R1 buttons still unresponsive in the skill menu.

Typo in potential safe rooms is still there too. "WELD DOORS TO CREATES A SHELTER."

Can't wait to play the game, but I'm gonna wait until more patches have been released and the game is more polished.

Not a bad idea. It's apparently working a bit better than it was at least, but it still has some pretty big issues. At a certain point on mission 7 it just wouldn't let me save anymore when making shelters, and it's still crashed a couple of times on me post-patch.

It's a good game but the technical problems are definitely its biggest drawback right now.

I had to quit a game earlier yesterday because I went into the menu and the x confirmation button wasn't working.  I closed out and it started working again, thankfully after I just saved, but it is annoying. 

It has so far run better on the second playthrough after the most recent patch better than it did before this patch.  But still I know you can't duplicate every glitch with limited amounts of playtesters just because you can't get all the variations a player will come across out of a gamer base that big, but still the game was ALMOST broken upon release (I had the pharros spire bug where I couldn't advance where it tells you to go to the top levels, even though you've been to the highest levels for Pryce).  That stuff needed to be way more polished.

I've actually ran into more bugs since the patch. Some have been minor while others are near game breaking.

Datapad glitch is preventing a secondary objective on nuclear protocol. I'm currently at pharos and only missing this one.

The bridge has also lowered locking me out of the other objective.

No saves outside of main objective completions on the montero.

The elevator wouldn't activate on tantalus. I had to redo the mission multiple times hoping one would work.

I know there's two more game breaking bugs in later missions and I seem to be hitting every one 😑

This playthrough was started after the patch.

Thats too bad. My game has been running buttery smooth since launch and exceptionally smooth when i bought a 12gb video card from Nvidia,before having an 8gb rx480 radeon. I guess it pays off in mental health to invest in premo hardware lest id be here scolding the gods to fix their broken ass game as most playstation players on the basemodel are doing on steam forums daily.

It does seem to be pretty hit or miss.  I didn't really have gamebreaking ones until my first playthrough on Pharos, where it wouldn't load the next mission even though it finished everything else. 

I had the x button not work, and randomly one of my medics died leaving me without a live one for the rest of the game (which ever level you go to the frozen cultist base and everything is all explodey at the end).  But he died sometimes after boarding the elevator, and sometime before the end of mission cutscene.  Which was annoying.

I just hope their next update will include a major game addition rather than these ghost fixes and little QOL updates. In addition,  they desperately need a new game plus. This game is a master piece of its' genre. I just wish they would keep it alive rather than let spambots spam their Steam forum discussions for this game. Or maybe they are all cranky devs who worked on it, I don't know. There is stuff like "I don't know how to click Y" to "Things are too hard for me" to "I don't want to hear the audio because voices suck" kind of comments coming out of that forum. Its disturbing and silly as it sounds.

Exactly . Don't know how much the game sold , which will definitely be a factor for what kind of a support the game will have .
But this is indeed a dream come true playing this game . Who would have thought that an rts of this kind would be the best Aliens experience so far (although FTE and AVP2010 were also pretty good imo) . Hope they support this game with additional stories , missions , modes whatever .

Well for me and many others this update broke more things than it fixed. Main issues remain like you cannot complete some secondary objectives to some really game breaking stuff like not being able to push story further because you cannot interact with computer.
Many new graphical glitches appeard with it as well.

But the devs are focusing on stuff like fonts and fixing the little light on the drone while some people cannot move APC or are stuck due to bugs and save system.

The priorities for this team are baffling to say the least.

Nice to see they're still working hard on the game. I'm sad to see no real info on future content or any kind of developer comments, press, media etc., but I do understand they want the game fixed before they hype anything else up.

The trailers and hype for this game were almost nonexistent until a month before release, so I'll try my best to be patient. :laugh:
