EDIT! UPDATE!

We had an issue which could wipe shared stashes when this patch was pushed. We rolled it back immediately, and issued an emergency patch an hour later.
That patch is now live and you should be OK.

IF YOU DO NOT SEE YOUR CHARACTER ON THE LOADING MENU, PLEASE SEE THIS THREAD!
viewtopic.php?f=30&t=35698&p=322365#p322365

You have our profoundest apologies if you are adversely affected by this.


Hey everybody! It's early early in the morning, but our first post-release patch just went live.
We have a list of other stuff we will be doing in upcoming patches, but we wanted to get one out ASAP to fix some initial issues-

Here's the goods!

STABILITY
*Fixed a potential crash bug when applying affixes and effects in certain circumstances
*Fixed rare crash when turning in quest in the Undercurrents.
*Put in protection against character save file corruption. Corrupted characters will not appear in the list of characters. (And thus can't cause the game to crash on load)

SKILLS
*Fix for Berserker geyser proc showing up as a mappable skill.
*Fix for triggering Shocking Burst and Arc Beam out of range while hitting shift that could cause chain casting.
*'Resist Slow' affix fixed.
*Proc affixes scale better with player level.
*Berserker 'Wolf Shade' now has the (intended) 60 second cooldown applied to all ranks.
*Fix for mistriggering when chaining two skills together when there is an early hit-frame.
*Safety check to stop any looping skills that get stuck in the 'on' state when the character is not performing a skill.
*Fixed bug with 'Poison Burst' procs (they should properly engage at more distant ranges).
*Fix for potential issue when units would queue removed/unavailable skills.
*Fix for having more than 100% reduction to charge decay or a negative flat charge decay.

PERFORMANCE
*Made significant optimizations to particle collisions.

SYSTEMS
*Fix a bug when recalculating the price on objects to make sure the calculation is based on the correct data.
*Fix for bug where rapid clicks could misspend stat points.
*Removed access to console commands in multiplayer games.
*The game's login dialog now correctly allows passwords up to 64 characters long.
*Removed display of other users' IP addresses in multiplayer games.
*Removed Steam Cloud toggle in the settings file (it didn't do anything); the ability to toggle is available in the Steam client.
*Removed logging for achievements to potentially reduce some FPS drops for some users.

LEVELS/SCRIPTING
*Tweaks to various areas to prevent units from getting stuck.
*Changed lootable rocks to be non-colliding as they could occasionally block very narrow corridors.
*Fixes to some level scripting logic in the Frosted Hills.
*Fixed a bug that could cause multiple Tower of the Moon entrances to appear in the world.
*Implemented a few specific boss room pathing fixes.

ACHIEVEMENTS
*Fixed friends list based achievements.
*Spell-learning achievements now don't incorrectly trigger based on other players.

MINOR
*Fixed several typos.
*Improvements to journal tooltips.

    Awesome work! By the way, all my expectations were completely dwarfed by the actual game. And I thought I was already over hyped about TL2!
    Remove sticky casting!

    All I know is this game is crashing more now than when I was playing in the Beta which I find odd. My last crash? About 5 - 10 minutes ago. I go to restart the game and now I gotta wait for the update. Not saying the update is what caused the crash I just find it funny it happened at the same time is all.

    What ****? Every crash I seem to lose a couple of levels. NOT FUN!

    EDIT: Just checked and verified this crash did NOT remove any levels or loot. What is DID do was completely reset my single player map which does not bother me too much but seriously the crashes are just annoying. Hoping the client stabilizes after a few more patches.

    2nd EDIT: Actually it did remove some loot. A nice hammer I received for a quest reward. It also reset the quest it appears as if I never completed it or received the reward. :(

    Cool. Thanks for the update!

    Have you guys thought about working on the targeting/hitbox system a bit? I have been having some problems targeting enemies with my Outlander's shotgonne. The hitboxes seem a little off. This was especially apparent in the phase beast portal challenge with the 3 tar champions and numerous little tars. I could not easily target the champion tars (their hitboxes were too small and the minion tars' hitboxes were too large), and I could not even run at some points. Anywhere I clicked on the ground was apparently hitting some mob's hitbox, and my character just kept shooting causing me to die.
  • Woot, First patch! Nice job; keep it up.

    I second that, have been having trouble with the targeting system too.

  • thanks! i hope u fix the big fish same icon problem.(simple fix) It is a missing feature in TL2 (TL1 has it). Not really important but it is nice to have it. :D
    Fish and EGGS. = It seems the item icons are the same in the inventory. Big fish look the same as small fish. (its a step backward from TL1) The Eggs look the same for all types.

    other suggestion.

  • Thank you for the update and all the hard work you've put into this amazing game.

    I wanted to point out that after patching my game on Steam, my shared stash is gone. Not sure if the patch caused this or something else. Anyone else have this happen after the patch?

    I have the same issue. I really hope this is temporary and not just gone, because I had probably about 10 uniques I was waiting to transmute, plus a mess of gems and gear for alts.

    First of all, thanks for all your hard work on this game and for supporting it post-release.

    EDIT:

    I can confirm this is happening to me too.

    Also...

    SUGGESTION: I would love if you guys consider tweaking the server browser a bit, especially in a way that it saves the last filters used. And maybe then implement a reset button for the filters too. I only play Elite, so I find myself poping in and out of games a lot and I have to adjust the server filters everytime I use the server browser, it's a small thing but it sure is annoying.

    Thanks :)

    Awesome. Thanks for getting this out, Travis + co.

    I noticed that sometimes my characters will totally stop what they're doing in the middle of combat, whether i'm right clicking or left clicking, and stand there until I reclick/attack. It's been frustrating because it means my damage over time etc. skills that do things over time aren't triggering/getting a chance to trigger. Brixtan noticed this, too.

    I'm also still getting the
    Torchlight II failed to launch (Application is Running)' error >.<
    And doh..I figured my pet spectral wolf was too good to be true XD

    The game is so great so far and this is the only issue for me. I'm having big trouble targeting monsters correctly with my Outlander as well. I died numerous time because I couldn't even move while fighting the guy that spawned countless stone pillars. Everywhere I clicked on the ground, it would hit something instead of moving for some reason, it's really annoying... :cry:

    Anyway thank you so much for such a great game, having so much fun!!! You gave hope to the Hack & Slash genre again! :D

    Edit: fyi, no missing shared stash for me after patch, not using steam
  • Awesome! Thank you to all the devs for getting this out there this fast.
  • Thank you, Travis (and the whole team at Runic). Our LAN party was a huge success. With the exception of 1 pesky ice mage mob stuck behind an enclosed area (no way to path to it) sniping us, all was hunky dory. I got it using the Spider Mines' explosion upon re-summoning though. :p Anyway, get some rest lol.
  • Post-Patch my shared stash has also been erased. Any fix for this?
  • MetroMetro Posts: 575
    I'll echo the sentiments about the awkward targeting and odd periods of delay where the character just sits there for a second or so despite commands being input. I guess it has to do with the queue/cancel/whatever debate during beta. Good way to get a **** character killed.
  • The stash issue seems to have something to do with Steam's cloud syncing (not that I know very much about it). The game refuses to launch now, crashing immediately after showing me a loading screen. It occasionally tells me that "steam has not finished syncing, do you still wish to launch the game" (I don't have the exact message in front of me, unfortunately) and I didn't take that option out of fear of losing my stash. No idea what's actually going on, though, I'll probably sleep on it at this point.
  • Yes, get some rest :) Your families miss you!
  • Take a rest Runic Games.... :cry: :cry: :cry:
  • Post-patch shared stash disappeared...any word on this? I've disabled steam cloud support to aid in future problems.

    We've pulled the patch - we just found the stash issue ourselves, have a repair, and are building it now.
    I'm profusely sorry :( We'll be here tonight until the fixed version is up.
    If you are using Steamcloud DO NOT UPLOAD -
    grab from the cloud again and you will recover your stash!
  • My game crashes right after startup after this update :( Just as its about to get to the menu.

    Question: If we didn't launch the game after the first patch and then the second patch went through -- will the stash still be there?

    Which file contains the one with the stash/character info? Thinking I might want to back it up before re-launch.

    You can hold the "`" key (left of "1" key) to move your character, it's not appear in the control setting though. :?
  • When are you going to support foreign characters in the chat window? :roll:
