  1. Just came back to Long Dark after about a two year break, spent forever last night trying to hang up the rifle in Trapper's Cabin in Mystery Lake and it's not working there anymore either. Was wondering if I was doing something wrong. Rifle wasn't "snapping" to the rack and appeared to be going outside the wall. Negative immersion points! :-(
  2. My XB1 crashes only happened in Milton. Since I started Episode 2 everything has been fine. On my way back to finish the 2nd quest so it's still early though.
  3. Been happening to me on XB1. Can play for 30 mins to an hour or so but eventually it will crash to the xbox home screen usually when exiting a building but it did happen one time when I was entering one. Started happening when I first got to Milton and started going in and out of buildings a lot.
  4. It was as much hilarious to me as it was horrifying to you. Glad I can laugh at stuff like that instead of getting mad. That first walk to Milton is pretty challenging for a brand new player especially since the timing of it seems to end up being at night with wolves to avoid. I made it without dying or getting attacked only because of months of survival mode training!
  5. Well it didn't happen. It's 11:45 and I've been watching someone on PC stream story mode for about 30 mins now. Still no update on xb1. The only question is will it be hours or days..... Dont underestimate the Microsoft bureaucracy!
  6. I agree! I spent $19.99 on this game 18 months ago and have gotten hundreds of hours of fun open world sandbox enjoyment out of it. This game ranks in my top 5 with other games like Skyrim, and GTA5 as far as time spent playing. On the other hand there are plenty of other $60 AAA title games that I bought and played for less than a day and quit because they sucked! I have more than gotten my money's worth for this game as it is now. I'm also mindful that story mode is not likely to provide the same hundreds of hours of play like the sandbox has. I might not be able to quit playing it and be done in a couple weeks! Hopefully story mode is also open world sandbox so we can keep playing sandbox style while waiting for the next episode to open up.
  7. I'm anticipating the release for XB1 will be delayed for a day or two as has happened in past sandbox updates thanks to the Microsoft bureaucracy taking its time to get things updated. Unless the story mode has already been included in the last update and is just "locked" until Aug 1st? Anybody know if there will be a update to download?

    It's not so unique if you have played Skyrim which is what I thought this thread was about since I have avoided the forums and all possible story mode spoilers lol! Guess I have to adapt to a new Astrid now!
  9. Will XB1 achievements be coming with story mode? Seriously guys, you're missing out on free exposure! When we get achievements it gets shared to our activity thread which all our friends see. I got about 100 friends - only really know 3 of them, lol!! But anyway they would all have a chance to see achievements which may lead them to investigate the game.
  10. I was afraid to go to sleep cause my condition was dropping. But it was my mistake anyway since I took antibiotics as I was walking towards the farmhouse. When I got inside it appeared that the infection was still untreated so I took more antibiotics which started telling me that it wasn't having any effect. I finally did try to sleep for 2 hours and noticed the counter dropped to 8 hours rest needed. I also didn't notice the little check mark on the afflictions display that turns on when you take antibiotics. I thought there was something a little more noticeable before. It has been a while! Anyway my bad, looks like it's working fine.
  11. Well think of it this way - the deer should have fallen through the weak ice and been lost anyway along with your arrow. Which brings me back to one of my original issues - why do deer, rabbits and wolves go out on the ice? Especially deer and rabbits. There's no food for them there so they wouldn't go there. Maybe a wolf might but it would be rare. They would hunt in areas where the food is. That's always been an immersion breaker for me.
  12. Hi all. Just came back to the game to check out the new update. Been almost a year! Looks nice! Got my first case of food poisoning which I tried to treat with antibiotics and it says that treatment didnt do anything. Took 18 antibiotics and cooked reshi tea but nothing worked. I have tried taking antibiotics from the radial menu and from inventory but neither works. My guy is down to 15% health and says he is going to bleed out. So I tried treating it with bandages and antiseptic but that didn't help.Reloaded the same save 3 times repeating all this but still didn't work. This is on XB1.
  13. Well there should be some kind of in-game feedback to let players know it's intentional and not a bug. An audio sound of attempting to yank the door open (similar to when you click on a radio) and maybe an "oh crap, can't open it from this side" character dialogue. People shouldn't have to come to the forums to figure this out. To new players it certainly gives the impression that it's a bug. That's what I thought when it first happened to me many months ago. I died - went outside with an hour of daylight left into a raging blizzard! My exact thought was - it's late, just going to open this door up and see what's on the other side and come right back in and spend the night and check it out further tomorrow. In a real life situation I would NEVER let the door close behind me, especially if I opened it and saw a blizzard going on!
  14. How's that "finalization" coming?? :-(
