FYI - Known Issues [April 6, 2022]

Hi Community,

We just released the v2.00 Update! Please note that we are also working on a couple of known issues:

  • Steam Deck: Players who use the Frame Lock option during gameplay may see black rectangles instead of tree art. There may also be an increased chance of crashes.
  • PS4: Players on PS4 may notice that they are missing HDR after the update. Additionally, this issue could mean that brightness controls might not work. We are working to resolve this.
  • All Platforms: Surveyed Locations are not accurate in the Collections > Surveyed Locations section of the Player's journal. Players will still be able to Survey locations, check which locations need to be discovered, and unlock the Faithful Cartographer Achievement.
  • All Platforms: The voice Volume Slider audio option will not change the volume of voice lines.

We are working to remedy these issues and will provide an update when one is available. If you would like to let us know about any other bugs, please reach out to us via our Support Portal.

Thank you for your patience, and thank you for playing The Long Dark!

Unable to light a torch with a fire, except torch on the ground.

Entering an interior location without a loading screen (ie. Mountaineer's Hut) makes the surrounding sticks, branches and limbs to despawn. This is not new to v2.00 (91441), but still an issue.

I'm also getting the problem with being unable to light an unlit torch; thought I was going crazy.

Havent tried in a campfire but definitely cant light a torch in a fire barrel.

This is on PC (Steam) and I did submit a trouble ticket.

Hi Zfp,
the sticks and branches are reappearing after You pass them, walk along about 30m and then turn around. I reported this as a bug.

I can't get worked up about problems of that level.

I am wondering how frequently updates are realesed ? Is there any schedule for it ? Problem with HDR/brightness on PS4 made me to stop playing as in all indoor locations I have to use light source. I am couries if fix is a matter of days or rather weeks / months.

There is no set schedule, and we hesitate to give estimates as they can change based on a number of variables. We can confirm that we are currently working on this issue, and we will provide an update as soon as one is available.

It sounds crazy, but the audio bug is making the game so hard to enjoy, having a loud, hoarse panting in the headphones every 5 seconds gets REALLY tiring. I know you dont like to make statement about when things will be fixed, but with a complete lack of understanding of game development, this seems like an easy fix ;) thanks you your hard work!

Unfortunatly, hinterland is not one to make a quick-fix patch to small problems. Usually, small changes or easy fixes, however gaming-breaking, will have to wait till the next big patch. (Like the blackrock insta-kill zone that wasn't patched for months) while I may not agree with this approach, it does ensure that there are no new bugs added with a small patch, as it's tested extensively beforehand.

Two very minor things..!...

No blood or footprints after a definite hit.. not always ,seems random..

I dropped a cleaning kit on the floor and it became invisible. The hitkey was still there but just couldn't see the item.

Something is wrong with cabin fever risk. I was at 50%, went to an outdoor cave, and now it's completely gone. There's no way it would have reduced that far in the few in-game minutes it took me to get there. This has happened several times now.

Hi Andy -- are you able to capture video or images of this? If you file a ticket via our Support Portal with some additional information, that would help us investigate further: https://hinterlandgames.zendesk.com/hc/en-us

Hi, I have replicated the disappearing cabin fever (Xbox series X) and submitted a ticket through the support portal with a link to a clip demonstrating the behaviour
