  1. So let’s play a fun game, alright? Think of a number in your head, of the number of wolves you think I encountered on my trip from Milton, through Mystery Lake, and through half of Pleasant Valley. Go on, think of a number. Got it? Remember it, because it’s story time. First time I start up Archivist, there’s five bloody wolves outside the starting house. Oh yeah, that seems fun. Let’s quit, make a new file and try again. Oh that’s nice, only three wandering the street this time. Start another new file. Oh, we’re back up to five. Start again. Four this time. One last time, and this time only two. I figure “whatever, that’s the best I’m going to get.” So I dodge around them while looting the town, etc. In between the town and the rope to Mystery Lake I avoid four more wolves. Isn’t that magical? Make it to Mystery Lake. Figure that must have been really bad luck and things will improve in ML. Pfffft nope. There’s two wolves outside the Trapper’s Cabin. Of course there is. Why wouldn’t there be? I make the mad dash to the cabin, make it, and of course there’s no rifle there. Shocking. Spend the night there, and leave, heading off towards the Camp Office. On the way, I dodge two wolves. Par for the course, eh? At least I have shelter… Or at least, I would, if I didn’t get ambushed by two more wolves outside the Camp Office. One is scared off by my torch, the other straight up ignores it and bites the heck out of me. Because why would I expect to be able to fend them off consistently, right? Bandage up, stock up in the cabin, spend the night. On the way to the derailment I dodge two more wolves. As expected, no rifle here either. Again, shocking. From the derailment to the trailers beside Carter Dam I only pass one wolf. Yay! But there’s two waiting for me outside the trailers. One is scared off by my new torch, one bites the heck out of me and I stab it. Deja vu is awful isn’t it? I bandage up after getting inside, make a dash for the Dam. Inside the Dam I finally get a rifle (15% condition lol) to go with my 40 bullets. Figure I’m set now. I have gauntlets, ski boots, a military jacket, an axe, a hunting knife, and a rifle (which I cleaned profusely) with two score bullets. ISSA JOKE. At the Winding River there’s two more wolves just in that first wide section. Blow the face off one, the other takes off. That’s more like it! I set up a fire and start harvesting the wolf. While I’m doing so, I get attacked by the second wolf. It completely ignores the fire, bites the heck out of me and I stab it. I finish harvesting after bandaging and bathing in antiseptic. I make it through the caves and to Pleasant Valley. Time for a fresh start, right? Things are a bit more normal on the way to Signal Hill. Only two wolves, shoot one, the other takes off, business as usual. I found my first Prepper Cache (the clothing one) northeast of here. I repair all my clothing to 100%, stock up on food, wood, and water. I get to Pensive Pond and there is a wolf there. Because why not. I run into the fishing hut and close the door. At least there’s a door right? The wolf attacks me through the bloody door. Just glitches through it, bites the heck out of me, I stab it, it starts to run. “Screw this cheating wolf,” I think, and I open the door of the fishing hut, aim my rifle, and shoot it in the butt to make sure it’s dead. I bandage up and move on. Heading north, I only pass one wolf, but then there’s another outside the General Store. I blow its head off, go in, stock up, and prepare to head towards Timberwolf Mountain. Heading west along the river, I only pass one wolf. Things are finally looking up. I’ve got a gun with tons of ammo, durable gear, the weather is relatively liveable, and I’m loaded with supplies. The plan is to head west until the bridge southeast of the Derelict Cabins, then strike off north towards the possible bear spawn. I’ve hunted many bears in the game by this point, and figure this will be pretty routine. As I get to the clearing south of the cave, there’s three bloody wolves within about 10 meters of each other. I put down a lure and ready my rifle as they all start moving towards me. The middle one is closest to me, so I put a bullet between its eyes. The other two run. One north towards the bear cave, the other into the rock wall to my left, just running into the wall. So of course, the wolf to my left turns right around and attacks me before I can react. I stab it, and as it’s running away, I shoot it in the back as it headed up the hill. Two down, one to go. Probably time to bandage up, apply antiseptic, and get ready for the third to my north right? WRONG ANSWER. As I’m bandaging, a fourth bloody wolf attacks me from behind. I know it was a separate wolf because the one that took off ran towards the bear cave. Challenge failed. u ded. git gud. Were you keeping count? How close were you? Did you guess twenty-eight bloody wolves in the space of a direct path through three areas? Do you still want to try and argue that this challenge isn’t broken because of the wolf spawn rate? I have scoured the Hinterland forums, the Steam forums, and the Gamefaqs forums, and have found many posts mentioning how absurd the number of wolves in the Archivist challenge is. A few players actually said the spawn rate was significantly higher than even Interloper Survival. So it sure isn’t just me who noticed that an already difficult challenge is made miserable because of the broken spawn rate of wolves. Now, I know it’s only a matter of time before someone posts here saying “u suck git gud its not the game its u uninstall” but I don’t see how 100+ hours of experience in the game, 40 rounds in a rifle, damage resistant clothing, and torches is even enough to deal with this idiotic spawn rate. It’s not me, it’s the challenge. And the Devs need to understand that and fix the spawn rate for wolves in the Archivist challenge. It's hard enough without a busted wolf spawn rate. Right now it is pointlessly difficult, buggy, broken, and above all else unfun.
  2. Hello everyone, this is my first post on the forum, and I wanted to make you go back a little technical problem but before anything else, I must tell you that I do not speak English (French) and so it's google who translates what I say. So I bought yesterday a wired horipad (switch) in usb to move my old xbox controller, and I note a concern: the sensitivity is maximum, so down in the menu at 0% but the sensitivity is too strong; to the point where it is extremely difficult to aim at the rifle. Here; thank you for your attention
  3. I have tried restarting the game several times and I get the same problem (PC, Steam). I get to the lodge, take the spear down from the mantle, get the little cut scene and then the mission still says to get the spear at the lodge and when I look at the mantel (that the spear is now gone from) it says "cave bear spear". If I reboot the game the spear is back and I rinse and repeat. Any suggestions? I have checked the game files and all is well. Thanks, Bren
  4. pls can you add a multiplayer it Wood be nice . not like Server where many can Play more like with Friends. me and my Friends wait only for this and we support the game for so Long thanks to the Person which read this
  5. Okay, I'm on day 4 of sitting in TWM Chasm cave with my buddy Frank waiting for an aurora. Bad luck with RNG? Have any of you experienced such long waits during this challenge?
  6. Its nothing really, just that the 350ml bottle somehow contains 500ml of fuel and now i can't unsee it.
  7. Image album with examples in Milton and my settings (FPS counter in top left) https://imgur.com/a/Ox16C2C I've no mods installed and graphics drivers are the latest. Anyone else experiencing lower fps when looking at the ground? Edit #1: Was testing, and I can fix and reproduce this by changing the SSAO setting from High to Medium. On High, the FPS drops dramatically when looking at the ground. On Medium there's no change in FPS. Edit #2: Now I have a bit more time, here's my specs for the record: Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K @ 3.50GHz RAM: 32.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24) Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. Z87-A (SOCKET 1150) Graphics: 2 * 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (MSI) Graphics Driver: ForceWare version: 417.35 Storage: Samsung SSD 960 EVO 500GB
  8. I found a bug with a large red box, which is located next to a workbench. First I dragged a one hundred of Scrap metal from the Carter Hydro Dam to the Forlorn Muskeg (where there is a Furnace) to make arrowheads.I filled a red box with 100 iron parts. I placed 25 parts of Scrap metal into the two upper compartments and another 50 parts into the lower large compartment. After that, the front covers of the red box disappeared (!) along with all the Scrap metal. Now I see only the body of an empty box without a front panel in which nothing can be put. I tried to reproduce this problem again. It turned out that the red box deteriorates even if you do not put anything in it. It happens after sunset.
  9. Okay, I thought I was going crazy before, but I know I'm not now. More than once, when entering a building, for the briefest of moments, I see items (on counters, peg-boards, etc.) but they disappear. I just entered a house in CH and saw (what looked like) some coffee and pork n' beans on the counter, but in a flash they were gone! Anyone else notice this?
  10. Ben oyuna bayıldım fakat daha önce ki güncelleme gelmeden önce ki hikaye'yi bilmiyorum. 30 Saat de bitirdim oyunu çok keyifliydi 3. bölüm ne zaman çıkar ve izlediğim videolar da gizli barınaklar var o barınaklar kaldırıldı mı yoksa gizli zula olarak mı değişiti fikri veya bilgisi olan varsa yazabilir mi ?
  11. The prepper cache bunkers on the older maps were there for a long time. I've seen comments from people even in 2016 that they could no longer find the caches, and they looked for all of them since only 1 of them spawns. One of my questions is, does 1 always spawn in Mystery Lake, 1 cache per region, or is it 1 cache per Great Bear Island ?
  12. Anyone else have problems with the new update? Support never responds. List of problems I encounter now in Wintermute mode: 1. Previously I could craft having obtained the blueprints. Now all blueprints are gone. 2. Wolves are more than frightened. At all times. 3. Random crashing with message “do you own this game?” Uh yah I do... Possibly the worst part about it is that “support” will not ever respond!
  13. Hey everyone! Long time no uploads here but I am keen to be back in 2019 with a lot more TLD content and hope you all enjoy it too as always keen to get any feedback so let me know what you would do differently though this is the story mode so lets enjoy it great update. Many thanks if you watched see you at the next one! MbG
  14. Has anyone else had the experience, recently, of shooting an animal (wolf, bear, or deer) and had them run away in a straight line forever? First was the wolf near the Fishing Camp on CH: he ran toward Rockfall until he ran up some rocks I couldn't follow. Been looking/listening for crows in the area for days to no avail. Second was the bear near BC Campground: he ran across the stream and up the hills toward the single Fishing Cabin until I couldn't pursue. Same as before, no sign of crows in the clearest of weather. Another was a wolf between Misanthropes and Waterfront Cottages: he ran directly toward the sea until he hit the edge, went left toward the island you can't get to off the coast of Commuter's and died out on the thin ice. I am playing on custom (don't have the code on me) with their fear set higher than normal, so maybe a specific circumstance. I also have the detection range (non-scented) smaller, so it seems to me they should stop fleeing closer to me as well although, admittedly, I know nothing of how these mechanics actually work.
  15. I noticed hinterlandforums.com doesn't use https and since we do enter usernames and passwords I figured I'd check if there was an https port available. It was -- but it answers with an outdated Let's Encrypt cert (expired January 2, 2017) and issued to beetleforum.net. When going on I get redirected to the site: https://beetleforum.net/forums/ Seems to be an active forum. Now there's nothing wrong with having an (unusual) hobby and I'm sure beetles are very interesting, I'm just curious what the connection to Hinterland is? Your webmaster has a passion for beetles perhaps? Or a server misconfiguration/shared hosting issues? I specifically recommend the topic "Beetles, can they host mind-altering/other dangerous parasites?" - I learned something new today
  16. Most likely an existing post or known dialogue issue; On Xbox One, the new Intro chapter cutscenes for Wintermute we're fine. The scene where Will removes shrapnel from his hand lost the, "grunt", audio, but that may be unrelated. My first time coming into Milton on the new route (which I enjoyed a lot more than the old tunnel route, fyi), the Grey Mother has no audio. I enter her cabin and there's an odd, green filter. There are no prompts until I approach the grey mother and I get, "Interact". Once I initiate that, I get a cutscenes with no conversation dialogue, though the grey mother model moves and speaks. With subtitles on, I see what the intended audio is, though once it gets to a point where I would choose a response on the old build, it just sits. So, yeah, I exited to main menu at that point. I'm looking forward to continuing redux, played as-intended, whenever the next hotfix comes out or if somebody has a fix I need to do. Running on an Xbox one s 1tb console. Original install was last July, updated whenever the December update came out. My previous saves did not persist, I assumed that was an update incompatibility thing. My survival saves did persist, however.
  17. Spoilers. Duh. And sorry for my english and all of that stuff. So after taking the radio parts from the towers in FM and returning to ML the bear attacks me and drags me to the cave. Cool. But after waking up in the cave, all I can see is a black screen and my condition bar. Nothing works. Pressing buttons does nothing. (Exept when hitting the sprint button the stamina meter shows up.) I tried closing the game and turning it on again, but all I see is a black screen and my condition bar. The "What one man can do" text appears on the screen and the quest to get the spear back is activated but that's it. Anyone else having this problem? Tips? Help? Edit: It appears that I might be somehow falling trough the world. It would really suck to lose all of my progress because of this.
  18. Hello, after several month, I wanted to get back to "The Long Dark" on my PS4. I made the update and launched the game. After checking the changelog, I headed to the Wintermute menu, and saw with horror and wrath that my save of 50+ hours was missing. I was at the second chapter a little before the bear. Wtf happened?! Why my savedata are missing?! Please help me! The only thing here is new game, with in red "launch a new party will erase your existing auto save! >n< If nothing can be done, FUCK YOU Hinterland! How dare you making shit that delete the save datas ?!
  19. So, I am currently having an issue loading my wintermute game save on PC. Wondering if anyone else had this issue, or if anyone knows how to fix it. I have TLD on xbox, playing on an Xbox One X. With it now being a crossplay title, I downloaded TLD onto my PC. However, I am unable to play my cloud synced games, that come from the xbox. I have no issues with any of my other play anywhere titles (state of decay, GOW, Forza, etc). The strange thing is, when I boot up TLD onto my PC, go to wintermute, and go to load, it shows ALL of the save files, with the newest save file being labeled as "save incompatible". When I click on ANY of the saves, whether "incompatible" or not, the save does not load. It makes an in game click sound, but nothing happens. Currently my Xbox One X, and TLD on xbox are 100% up to date, no beta/preview builds. As well as my windowsOS and TLD on PC are up to date, no beta/preview builds. Rig im playing it on is a Lenovo Y720, i7-7700HQ, 16GB DDR4, GTX 1060 8GB, and a Samsung 500GB PCIe SSD. I have already tried reinstalling onto PC/XBOX, as well as doing a game reset on PC, moving HDD location on PC, and creating a few new saves on XBOX, then syncing to PC. Any help/ideas/suggestions?
  20. So, No longer having my game save issue, because now the came cannot launch. When I logged into my pc the game had updates available. I assume it was from the two hotfixes they released. So I updated it, now on version 1.44.44083.2, and now the came crashed at launch. The error I get it "Fatal error" "Failed to load Game Assembly!". The only things that has changed on my PC is TLD update. I literally had it running right before the update. I have already tried doing the reset on the program, moving HDD's, and uninstall reinstall. Anyone having this issue, or know a solution?
  21. I've seen very little about this particular issue. Not sure if it is an issue. It would be very helpful if a Staff member could tell us if this is a bug, or if there is more to be found for survival lessons.
  22. Nice quick story about finding a long lost arrow Based at Trapper's homestead and needed food other than bear meat. Bow shot two deer, and lost both deer and (2) arrows, as they seem to de-spawn if they run behind Trapper's up at the rock ledge. So shot another deer and lost it's blood trail as it headed towards No Name Pond in a snow storm. (3) days later, the sun came out and so did some new crows...found a deer and my arrow, (but also could hear a wolf coming nearer). Tried to drop a campfire but the flat snow covered ground would not allow placing a fire on flat snow, so resorted to a quick wolf struggle. Later, found that the only place the campfire could be placed was if it was on top of the crow feather above the deer's head. (Sorry did not get an F8 screenshot, but it was here, screenshot facing back toward hill leading toward Trapper's) Carrying 20 lbs. of deer meat back to base and soon discovered why my wolf friend was no longer harassing my survivor. Has anyone else been losing deer to the cliffs behind Trapper's Homestead?
  23. i recently purchased the long dark on steam, but i'm gona be honest, i used to play the pirated version. now i want a fresh start, but after installation i found the saved game is still carried over to the proper version. how can i get a fresh start, without any feats, challenges, story or survival mode saves? thanks.
  24. When I went to check the charred ruins of Milton's school I decided it was extremely important to reach the bell and the chimney. I then tried to crouch and walk under the burned beams and I got extremely stuck. For some reason I was seeing the school's floor, but couldn't move, neither crouched nor upright.
  25. on the Redux update, the running animation doesn't match the running sound. so for example hearing 2 steps would correspond to jumping only once in the air. previously on wintermute update i woulda jumped once for every step i heard, which kinda felt better, made me feel like i was running for my life or rushing very fast towards something. now its just a slow up and down with faster step sound that don't match the animation.
