  1. I have completed all the 4DON challenges up except for day 4 ofcourse. Yesterday i was awarded the Twilight badge after bunkering down and doing nothing for 2 houres in Quenston garage. I was able to see the badge in along with all the other badges, but when i check now the Twilight badge is gone and it has gone back to the locked version. Please help/explain what happend. I even have a screenshot of me getting the badge if needed.
  2. My survival mode game just disappeared without a trace. Not even an option to load. When I logged out last night, I made sure everything was saved and I didn't shut down the computer in the process or anything. What the heck happened?
  3. While this isn't technically broken, it does feel (game-) mechanically broken and almost play-breaking. 1) When doing a repair with a hide, if the repair fails, you lose the hide completely. Depending upon your circumstances, this could be devastating. 2) This one is more pervasive and odd: if you build a fire and, say, throw 12 hours' fuel into it, and then at minute 6, the wind picks up. The fire's lifespan then drops to ~9 minutes, and it winds down until the fire is dead. However, all that fuel that is necessarily unburnt is now gone. This, also, could be unjustifiably devastating.
  4. Hi there! I have been experiencing some crashes lately with the game while playing Survival Mode on PS4. The game is fully updated to the latest version available for download from the PS Store. It did occur to me in the past (with older versions of the game) that, occasionally, the game would crash when entering a loading screen, then it would send me to the PS menu screen where I would get the option to report the problem. But in the last 24 hours it happened more than half a dozen times, some of these being while entering loading screens, but another handful when quick passing time between melting snow in a can and boiling the untreated water. It is funny that all crashes happened in Pleasant Valley, and as soon as I moved region I have not experienced any (fingers crossed). In fact, I do remember that most of the crashes in the past (if not all) may have occurred in PV. If the crash happens in a loading screen then it can be tricky because you may have to redo many things that you did before. If it happens while boiling water then it's more bearable as the game autosaves after the melting process and before the boiling. I have reported all crashes via the PS menu and attached the corresponding screenshots (you are given this option automatically), but unfortunately I do not have further information. If it happens again I can let you know the error description, should that help. Many thanks in advance for your support and my apologies for the wall of text.
  5. I've been playing The Long Dark since 2014, and I'm eighteen years old. While I've had a couple of gaps in my time playing, I'm pretty well-acquainted with the game's history and function. It's a surprise that I wished to join the forums so late, but there's a first for everything! I feel glad to be part of a community like this, and I look forward to spending time here. I live in the state of Kentucky, but unfortunately, I've lived in the city my entire life. That being said, I still get lots of time to enjoy the outdoors at my grandmother's, who lives in Salem, Indiana. I go hiking whenever I go up there, romping through the woods and using my field guides to identify flora and fauna along the way. During the winters, I help gather firewood for the wood-burning stove with my trusty hatchet, Gina, named after a dear friend of mine. I hope to study earth science in college and become a forest ranger up North, in Wisconsin, Minnesota, or if our politics proceed as they do for much longer, Manitoba. I'm glad to be a part of the community, and I hope to contribute thoughtful ideas and really be a part of something. Good luck way out there!
  6. i got great hardcore update idea for long dark but how we can get it trough :I? so you could catch wolfs to pets and make sleigh for chopping trees and stuff then u could put wolf to move your sleigh and you need forge to make steel parts for sleigh that would be amaizing but i bet it would just come survival not story :I. that would be amaizing update about travelling faster in game *wolf sleigh* and i forget say you could add bear bedroll in sleigh so you can be warm there not cold or normal bed roll and store stuff to sleigh so you dont need carry over 40 kg items all the time sorry my bad inglish could this be possible to add atleast on survival mode maybe not story? item requirements to wolf sleigh 4-6 wolf bear bedroll hacksaw hammer forge fir and cedar wood and maybe sticks and last one rope and litle detail there how many wolf you have that give you more item space to carry if you have 4 wolfs you can store 40 kg and if you have 6 wolf you could store 60kg stuff
  7. I know the whole staff is on vacation for the rest of the month, but I'm opening this up to see if anyone has any theories or ideas. It's quite clear now, with multiple veteran players reporting no achievement earned, that it's broken. There must be thousands of player hours wasted on this by now, and we still have yet to see an official statement on it, or even acknowledgment. This is highly discouraging, as this achievement is quite a commitment to undertake. Is there ANYONE out there who has gotten it? If so, was there some special technique you used? Until the team gets back from vacation, and can confirm that it was vetted, and working internally, lets put our heads together and see if we can find some common sticking points, or maybe someone out there has some special tick that worked on a particular stubborn location? Edit: I've changed the title, and am changing parts of some of my posts here, as apparently, I've come off as being in the middle of an epileptic stroke over this. This isn't an attempt to force some staff back early from vacation, nor a ragequit post. I'm just trying to bring different thoughts from the community together so maybe we have a good starting point once the team can look into it.
  8. So my game was lagging really bad and decided to log off and restart, but before I left I wanted to check the Badges bar in the pause menu to check my stats. I then saw the “Saving...” icon but thought nothing of it at the time. So I log back on and check the Badges again in the menu, only to find all the percentages reset to zero! Can anyone explain what’s going on here? Because I have a feeling that something got corrupted that I don’t know about Thanks!
  9. Hello I had collected a lot of coals in mines for the fire, but it's now unusable because it became of charcoal.
  10. Is it just me or does there seem to be a little wonkiness as it relates to the way loot is distributed around the various maps? For example, I random spawned in Mystery Lake on a recent sandbox game and as I looted the map I could not find a single hacksaw anywhere as I scoured the area. Checked every outbuilding, every interior requiring a loading screen change and nothing. Did find 7 axes and 8 hunting knives. Had to divert to FM in order to get a hacksaw and there I found 3 hacksaws. By the same token, only was able to find two cooking pots. Decided to head over to Milton town. Found no less than 11 cooking pots, so now I have 6 pots at the farm house and 5 pots at the old lady's house. Whetstones... just not enough, ever. That always means a trip to Timberwolf to check the contents of the plane wreckage and that doesn't mean you will be finding what you need or want either. so, in your opinion, is loot density or item availability skewed? Maybe requiring a little re-balance? Or is it just fine?
  11. Wasn't sure if this was the right place or not, and this isn't anything that's even a big deal, just a minor detail to call attention to. At least in Google Chrome, the favicon for the forums seems to be either broken or missing. The favicon on Hinterland website and TLD website are both there, it's just the forums here. That is all.
  12. Hello! I am hope for your help Survival mode. The game is broken when I try to enter any structure (building, cave, etc.). Live only outside is not suitable Started in Milton, at other locations did not try. version 1.35 Win 7 32 bit cpu i3 530 gpu gtx 660 ram 4gb What solutions to the problem have been tried: - reinstall the game - updated Visual C ++ 2013 12.0.40660 (there is still a Visual C ++ 2015 on the PC) - updated graphics card drivers - graphics set the lowest - turned off the antivirus - run as administrator - run in compatibility mode with XP SP2 - run through the files ".bat" - wrote in the properties "tld.exe" various startup parameters: "-force -d3d9 -popupwindow " nothing helped files and screenshot attached to the message P.S. I tried on another location. As it turned out, the game is broken at any time (not only when I go into the building) error.log output_log.txt
  13. This: Steam forums post is once again causing confusion, and it is honestly getting old. In the Wiki, The Cooking Skill table has always said Cooking Skill 5 prevents food poisoning and Parasites from COOKED food. However in the image shown in the forums post I linked, the words "from cooked foods" are missing. This has been going on for ages, and people keep saying "I never got food poisoning from eating 0% canned xxx after getting Cooking Skill Lvl 5! So... no one ever will!". Meanwhile, plenty of us have gotten food poisoning from raw foods at Cooking Skill Lvl 5, but somehow we must be lying? Please, clarify, once again, on Steam and here, if food must be cooked to be free from Food poisoning risk at Cooking Skill Lvl 5, and change the dang in-game text to show it, if this is the case. An official clarification could possibly (but sadly, not likely...) shut down the back and forth arguements and any misinformation about this once and for all. Making sure the in-game text is complete and specific would also help greatly. Seriously, it's getting old. Jokes are all fine and well, but...
  14. Stumbled upon another little quirk in the game that maybe can be used to some advantage when cooking. I had finished cooking up a batch of teas and coffee which I placed right next to the potbelly stove at camp office. I came back to the stove the next day to cook a fish I caught when I heard the bubbling sound of boiling water. I looked over to where my teas are sitting on the counter and they are merrily bubbling and boiling and when moused over read "hot." I tried to catch the vapor coming off the cups with the HD cam, not sure if you can make it out or not. Anyways, not a great exploit, but kinda cool non the less. The tea and coffee heats up but doesnt boil away. gets hot and stays hot as long as the stove is burning. thanks for reading!
  15. Issue: framerate is in single digits when in HRV region (and only that region). Specs: Mid 2011 iMAc // 2.5GHz i5 // Radeon HD 6750M 512 MB // 12GB RAM It's an old machine but it still gives serviceable FPS. I used to have the exact FPS drop issue in the past but it was more local – only when turning viewport towards a certain spot in the map; or it was temporary; or it could be fixed by lowering texture resolution. But now most of HRV region is affected, making it unplayable. In the screenshot is the direction I can look where I get normal FPS. Moving the screen even 45° would kill it. It's not game's files (started right after updating) and it's not the settings either.
  16. as many of you know beach combing is game mechanic which basically allows you to get resources that aren't renewable, such as cattails and cloth. But you can also find broken arrows, bullets, flares, saplings, and hats. Now i'm not very concerned about the others, but hats and sapling's i am curious about. Do they wash up on interloper? Or interloper level loot? Because it does take a while to run out of arrows and bows, but eventually you will, and you will run out of hats to wear. So do these things wash up or are all interlopers doomed to die since all there resources dry out?
  17. Hi, well, it was really long time since i posted my last Topic here. I finally decided to change e-mail and password, i did it and well, i'm finally here yet again. You see, i have finally my Gaming PC and i'm really happy with it. But in The Long Dark i have some strange FPS Drops... i mean, inside everything is okay, i have this problem mainly during day-time when i'm outside. I have stable 60FPS but i saw that they like to drop even to 40FPS outside during day. I have everything maxed out, even those gauges. If i'm not wrong the problem is with Trees, when i dropped their drawing distance a lot ( to the stage of prepared Ultra ) the FPS seemed to be stable 60. But still i have a feelings like maybe something is wrong with my PC. Can anyone help me? By the way, thanks for replies! My Specifications: CPU: Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz GPU: MSI GTX 1050 Ti 4GT OC RAM: 4x2GB ( 8GB ) DDR3 1333MHz Power Supply: Chieftec 500W ( it has something like over 10 years ) Hard Drives: Some old SATA3 ones ( lol, really, i don't know much about them, 2 of them are Seagate and one of them is WD. 2 of them have something like 320GB, and another one only 160. They also have like over 10 years. ) PS. I'm really wondering because my GPU should have no problem at running this game. I see in recommended GTX 555, so it should run without problem. My CPU maybe is not the best, but it's also not bad, so i think it should also run this game on max. Or maybe is it my CPU or even GPU? I don't know, i'm just confused with that problem... i'll just say my GPU has around 60 degrees when outside with many trees. On games like TF2 on max i have only 40 degrees... Please help! I have knowledge in PCs but this problem... i just can't get this one!
  18. Started wintermute episode one. When I get to gray mother's house, the video where she shoots just crashes. Started a new one. Crashed again. Can't go on to playing the episode. Help?
  19. Im playing TLD on the XBOX 1 and now I suddenly cant screenshot or record. When I go into capture options it says "Game doesn't allow capturing" This worked an hour ago. The heck is happening?
  20. Since the latest feature update, item placement requires too much free space around items, what makes it impossible to store items "realistically" outside of storage units. Until the last update one could eg stack cans next to each other on a shelf a way what was looking good, now you cant. I hope this can be reverted to the previous behavior.
  21. Seems like the new fire asset can be extremely difficult to place, even on flat ground. I was trying to place one up on the hill on jackrabbit island and couldn't get it anywhere near the house for that moderate shielding, or near the two wolves I killed slightly down the hill from the front door eating the rabbits. It makes staying warm hunting on interloper more of a hassle than it needs to be unless the animal bleeds out in the most opportune of places, which generally isn't the luck you have. Or cooking near shelters that don't have a dedicated fireplace already. The only place near the jackrabbit house I was able to place one was on the rock cliff directly behind the house, on the actual grey rock part on very particular, small places that ended up being very poorly protected from wind.
  22. The quest apparently doesn't update properly on GOG 1.35. Even though I found all the caches, the map icon for the Allan's Cave cache is still showing and the quest's status remains unfinished.
  23. Ive decided to take a crack at the whole survival story thing so after my last custom interloper was mauled by a bear I started anew. The only custom thing about this is that I start in Mystery lake so i don't get insta killed and ruin everything. Sadly, I cant provide screenshots as I play on XBOX. Day 1 of probably not many. Wake up at the crack of dawn freezing to death at the top of the clearcut. Shamble down the cliff somehow not breaking my ankle (Im playing as Mackenzie) and break into a sprint towards the logging camp as a group of wolves decided to right now was the best time to catch some lunch. Logging camp is completely barren accept for a pair of combat boots in ok condition. Pick up some crow feathers off a human popsicle and set my eyes on the abandoned gondola. The wolf that likes lurking in there has decided to take a nice vacation so it looks like i'm relatively safe. Climb up on the rock face so I can avoid the train wreck and not get mauled. Finally manage to get into the camp office before I contract frostbite. The place is completely picked clean besides some tin cans, paper, and a skill book. But whats that glinting in the corner? I crouch down besides some wooden crates and my god.... Its a magnifying lens! I get on my hands and knees and pray to the TLD gods about how thankful I am. Break down furniture for that tasty reclaimed wood, but wait... it was overcast when I got inside! Oh no, my thirst is about to turn red! Oh what am I to do?? I step outside and its crystal clear! Hallelujah! I cry as I boil water. But then the long dark gods laugh in my face and blow wind onto my fire. Least I got some water and rose hip tea, Decide to skim the lake for cattails as i'm starving and need food so I can go to sleep. I shovel cattails into my mouth planning the day ahead. Hoping to get to the trappers cabin, then perhaps skip back and check out the mystery lake overlook then the dam. If you want to here my struggles continue please tell me, also, i'm not so worried about wolves, weather, or whether not I have matches, its the fact I have no rifle and i've barely used the survival bow. Please give me some tips so I can use it without missing all the time. Also, has that arrows glitching out of the world bug been patched? Here is a detailed drawing of my opinion on the survival bow, enjoy.
  24. I've been stuck on 99% for Snow Walker for awhile now, perhaps at least a few days. If I have 99% progress then that means I must have traveled 990 kilometers out of the 1000 kilometers required. To acquire this feat for a new long run I decided to play a few survival games to see how far I could. Getting more than 10 kilometers from at least five different sandbox games was easy enough. However I still haven't unlocked this feat yet. Am I missing something?
  25. There is a preset key binding for Status (F), Clothing (C) etc. What is the key for Crafting? Does anyone know this?
