The Pit 1.0.7 & The Pit: MindGames 1.1.8

Yes, we've been all clever and we've updated both the base game of The Pit as well as the usual continued support updates for the newest version of the game series, MindGames. This means a few things that were addressed at some point in MindGames have also been fixed/improved/tweaked/changed the same for The Pit. The best example being that The Pit now has the same Big Picture support that MindGames has! So, those of you who haven't moved up to MindGames yet, we haven't forgotten you... and you should totally buy MindGames at some point.

The Pit v1.0.7
- Added Big Picture support!
- Improved NPC AI for area effect weapons.
- Razor fists now flash red in weapon panel when damaged.
- Grabbed targets are now released when attacker is stunned.
- Previously decoded messages can now be retrieved from consoles. (note: Only the first 50 messages can be retrieved from consoles on Easy.)
- Items now list what recipes they can be used for.
- Booby-trapped disintegration bay now shuts down after charges are used up.
- Added teleport door trap. (bwah-ah-ah)
- Disarmed traps can now be picked up and reused.
- Pulse Resonator can now be recharged.

Mind Games v1.1.8
- Consoles now return messages even if all messages have been decrypted, to allow advanced users to
improve Decipher skill.
- Keyboard scroll input no longer overrides item selection in SotSdex.
- Pulse Resonator can now be recharged.

So my saved game with the Marine keeps crashing and now I know why.
Any update to fix that issue anytime soon?

Old saves aren't working for me, either.
Door traps don't seem to work anymore except the teleport door trap. (bwah-ah-ah)

Guess I was lucky in taking a break when I did.

Thanks for the continued support for a very fun game, even if at times its frustrating to play! :)

So, from what I've gathered from other posts here and on the official forums, this update hoses core The Pit players, but those of us with the DLC came out okay.

Kerberos are masters of the hotfix so I'm confident they'll straighten the bad core game patch pronto, but in the meantime, those with the DLC have no reason to hold off on the upgrade.

Forgive my ignorance, but does that mean full controller support is included?

Sorry, I've been neglectful - yes, full controller support for both The Pit and MindGames now.

That's probably worth starting your own topic for :)

Please check for a crash.txt file under:
%AppData%\Sword of the Stars - The Pit

That should give folks an indicator of what the issue is.

Retreiving previously decoded messages is for once you've decoded all of them, right?

There seems to be an oversight. If you have all 50 of the Easy messages but not all of the higher ones, you will fail to retrieve anything when playing on Easy.
