During my first EtDW game, my position (the arrow) would not show on the map. I completed the event without it, but I'm mentioning it because it was not on the list of fixes. For me, the fog counter showed 0 minutes briefly entering interiors. Also, when a Lure was about to expire and you went indoors, upon exiting it would be reset to 100% if the monster didn't reach it in time.

Noticed that my character kept repeating the same monologue  everytime the Darkwalker was in the vicinity. Is this something that has been or will be addressed? 

@Torqen there should be multiple different lines. Are you literally only getting one piece of dialogue when the Darkwalker is near?

el error con la cámara temblando al apuntar con armas sigue ahí. No aparece siempre, pero a menudo

It is not a mistake, it is something that was added to the game when your character is at risk of hypothermia by pointing a gun and shivering from the cold.

No fix for those using the alternate launch options "-force-glcore"??

Fix the bugs introduced into the game by this event please. Random crashes is not a pleasant thing.

Yes... and it's getting worse. As of today I've been unable to play the game at all with constant crashing either in the Disclaimer or in-game loading screens. In the last couple of days there were some intermittent crashes, but for the most part it was still playable, I think I did like 6 hours yesterday with "only" 2 or 3 crashes. Not like today with absolutely total no-go no matter what I do. And interestingly, my key bindings are now also resetting to defaults aftee those crashes, which it did not do before. It's almost as if there's been a 1.87b patch that broke it even further lol

(And for me, doing force-glcore crashes the game even before launch so that too is a no-go)
