Two pieces of good news.

Night-Vision goggles are on sale in the Bar! ...13,000+ Ru though...

1.4002 has solved the crash when entering the Bar area from Garbage.

Great stuff!!!

Sorry to say but I'm starting to agree - which is a shame as initial impressions are fairly good - excepting geometry issues, with white lines flying through the scenery (never seen in 1.3x)

As for 'I should wait for dark and sneak into the Military Checkpoint in a MJ with no NV and maybe a Fort-16...' yeah agreed = stupid!!!

I'm not sure what's gone wrong, but I wonder if the 1.3 leak has meant that they have not given 1.4 to enough people to properly test.

Overall it's considerably more buggy than 1.3 - which had it's own issues - but in 1.4 I currently can't even get to the bar area, due to some nasty physics bug.
hi, i used the teleport function to go get the suit, rifle and artifact, then t/port back to cordon. worked fine
---END QUOTATION---



I'm sure it worked 'fine' for you.
I prefer to see if a game is playable without resorting to such subterfuge.
i.e, playable as is.

Yes, I noticed this, but in the inventory there looks to be a special slot for night vision goggles.

I'm nowhere near far enough into the game to expect to find nv yet, so am holding my breath.

Overall the DC looks very impressive so far.

but at least I have functional binocs (albeit without object discrimination)

Still.No.Night.Vision...
---END QUOTATION---



this is from the change log of Lost Alpha DC 1.4000

Gameplay

- new binoculars
- binoculars now have upgrades, motion tracking is disabled by default


I, for one, love that - I usually remove the motion tracker manually (because that is how I prefer to play) - but this makes everything much smoother, so for that

Did I mention that the firing mode key (V) does not work? All rifles stay in auto mode.

---END QUOTATION---


0 and 9 change the firing mode. V switches the ammo type.

I hit the same "Can't find model file 'physics\sign\bar_sign_right.ogf" show-stopper as blakecasimir, so I've followed his advice and loaded this hotfix: https://yadi.sk/d/YPlXHDlp3HPWGs

Just starting over - hope these fixes help...

Edit: And now I'm downloading the 1.4002 Big Patch. All credit to the team - they're responding pretty quickly to bug reports. Even starting again won't be too much of a pain as I'm really enjoying being back in 'the zone'.
---END QUOTATION---



Yes they are working minor miracles behind the scenes. I'm currently running 1.4002 (big) as well.
Good news! My actor needs to eat now.
Have not got as far as the "bar gate bug" but will probably be dling that fix after I retake the Agroprom.
Still no mode shift on rifles, which is a pain imho, but at least I have functional binocs (albeit without object discrimination)
The food and drink are doing what they were meant to do in 1.3003 (but didn't) - food and booze dehydrates you etc.
More of the artifacts are showing up...
I even raided the stash with the Snowflake - a major bonus at this stage.

I even rolled back to the GMF, ran to Forgotten instead, (in the dark, no NV, everything trying to eat or shoot or burn me)
Actually GOT there, and tried to 'jump' to Yantar. The game gave me the level change popup, and promptly CTDd.

So my alternate strategy to get the SSP-99m and the Snowflake got nixed.
(Assuming that the SSP-99m is still there, and hasn't morphed into a Soldier Suit or the trick Skat-9 mil suit that the Devs thought was so FUNNNY in 1.3003)

As an aside: TWO YEARS ago, I had to pull a guy up on the LA wiki who was gushing about DC and verging on inserting content relating to DC into the LA wiki, on the grounds that:

a) DC was presumably in alpha so any content inserted was quite likely to alter before release.
b) No-one else at the wiki was able to corroborate his DC content because effectively he was playing a different game and doing so as a tester.
c) Was he aware of the leaking situation that led to the release of LA in the first place?

He was. He went off in high dudgeon and has not communicated since.
I don't expect this to change in light of this burnt offering of a release.
How in hell did this mess pass the testing phase?

Knackered binocs
No mode shift on long arms
Actor never getting hungry

Are SoC 1.0 bugs and were fixed a decade ago.
Someone's got a lot of explaining to do...
