Did they re-add assets rather than fixing what's on there?
edit: we need a like system on here. WTF Era.
It is just as bad as retail games having just a download code inside. Like, WTF is the point? I would have made the game digital only, sell it for $40 instead of $60 and probably get a lot more sales for the game while at the same time, avoiding any possible complaints regarding this situation/decision.
Hoping that Deep Silver doesn't do this shit with Metro Exodus.
When are reviews coming out for this game?
I have a strange feeling that Kingdom Come is going to be bug ridden on release, didn't Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 have similar patch sizes?. This is not a good sign
I don’t mind the big patch sizes personally but I understand why they are a problem.
So, let me stop the rumor mill dead in its tracks before everyone continues jumping to conclusions. The way that I've been told that the engine works, is it takes the entire game and separates the PKG or ISO into 2GB archives. If during a patch you so much as alter a 1KB text file within any of these 2GB archives, then you need to reupload the ENTIRE 2GB portion. That beings said, this is a major patch that improves overarching mechanics throughout the game, so it touches almost all of these 2GB archives in the entire game build. Essentially you are having to redownload the game to replace the existing files. It shouldn't stack them and inflate on your harddrive, but rather replace the previously downloaded build files.
I thought we got rid of omega sized day 1 patches smh
But the game is 23 GB..
When I got a physical version of Total War Warhammer II it basically just opens up steam to download it.
Thanks for the clarification.
From the other thread:
The same thing happened to LA Noire Remastered. The entire game is probably on the disc if you install it offline, but if you are online, it downloads a patch that is there entire game, and it pretty much overwrites everything that is on the disc. I don`t get why they do this.
That screenshot is from me and I don't know what should be not true about this. It downloads the complete game and only installs around 100mb from the disc, what can I say, it's what it is.
Haven't tested to install it offline but that's what it does when I'm online.
The 1.02 patch is apparently 5GB by itself if you already had 1.01, so that's like 3 files being replaced.
Lot can be improved in the 6 weeks between submission and shipping, but I am glad with steam I will just get the up to date copy right away.
Good to see devs on here. the outrage machine can get out of hand really bad here on era.
Is it out on Xbox too? Only had 1.01 there.
Alright, got it, thanks.
Does 1.02 fix the horrible framepacing?
That should be priority number one next. It's awful how the whole screen stutters and stops every 2 seconds, it's throughout the whole video.
