Legends of Dawn STEAMED PASSION
Unbelievable experience! Today was a whirlwind experience where we unfortunately made a series of moves that have angered Kickstarter backers, but also gave us the great success of the first two days of the sale that exceeded our expectations.

The passion and heat on Steam forum are rarely seen. Every day thousands of new users join Legends Of Dawn and it's exciting to follow up.
There are a lot of gamers busy playing and enjoying the game and those who have problems are very vocal, which is perfectly fine when it help us find and fix problems.
To those who expressed doubts or worries if we'll support our customers and improve the game the answer is clear - Yes we will, it's all we will do and will continue to do.

We'll address most important issues ASAP and then add desired features to the wish list.

LoD community is rapidly growing and we are monitoring what you are saying and we try to read everything.
Let's address a few implemented improvements:

We have uploaded another patch to Steam server (v1.02). Regarding players getting stuck - we have added Regenerate action to Options -> Controls panel. Now you can configure a key that teleports you to the last respawn point. We have also fixed small translation bug in non-English languages.

The autosave feature is also implemented. You can choose a time interval for auto-saving (never, 10 minutes, 20 minutes or 30 minutes). Autosaved game always takes one slot in the save game list and new autosaves are overwritten over the old one.

We have also implemented a QuickSave action. A large number of players requested this feature so that they do not have to activate Options -> Save Game panel each time they want to save the game. QuickSave simply creates new save game called QuickSave each time you press the QuickSave key. You can bind this action to any key, just as you do with other actions.

Speaking of keys - we fixed two bugs regarding key configuration. The first bug was that custom key bindings did not work until player activated the Options panel for the first time. The second bug was that camera rotations using keys did not work. Both of these should work fine now.

Also fixed is sliding after manual respawn if player pressed respawn key while moving around.

Brown screen bug - for some reason, some configurations seem not to have NVidia physics system software or its latest version. Legends of Dawn uses NVidia PhysX to move all game objects. If PhysX libraries are not installed, game will start with black background. We are still investigating why this bug happens since PhysX should be installed with the game. In the meantime you can install the PhysX directly from NViadia site at

http://store.steampowered.com

Don't forget to reboot your computer.

Next on our list are few assignments regarding movement. We plan to implement left+right mouse key movement forward, and then movement using point'n'click method - that player's character will move by clicking on the location he/she wishes to go. The camera will be improved too.

Some PC configurations don't perform well although in many cases weaker configurations when set up properly will work well. Streaming engine sits heavily on your computer resources so if the configuration is bloated or weak you'll experience low FPS. We'll continue to optimize the engine.

Huge thanks to all who try to offer information in constructive and inspired way. Big thanks also to our friend at Humble store and we are very sorry for every inconvenience you stumbled upon in trying to acquire your keys.

Humble Bundle is handling you Steam keys and they will provide with access to DRM Free version as soon as they set it up (we already sent them the master). Later they will deliver other digital goodies as we prepare them. Unfortunately some PayPal and KS backers still did not get keys so let 's go through steps once again:

a) go to the https://www.humblebundle.com/store/keyresender

b) enter EXACTLY THE SAME email you backed with on Kickstarter or exact email used to donate with Paypal

c) in case you have problems please contact HumbleBundle support http://support.humblebundle.com/

d) if you still have problems contact us directly at support@dreamatrix.net

As you possibly noticed, Steam has $15.99 one week promotional price for LOD, after that it will be 19.99. We thought that $15 promotional price for digital download for Kickstarter backers is appropriate. However publishers consistently suggested lower than planned retail price and we listened. In the light of new circumstances we would like to give some additional reward to our backers who helped us so much. We are still thinking what exactly that will be, but it will come in a form of additional download. Thank you once again for your help!

Help us improve the game.

a) If you stumble upon critical bug that wasn't already mentioned several times please send us the log file which can be found typically (but not necessarily) C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Legends of Dawn\logs\game_lod.htm or for non steam version C:\Program Files\Dreamatrix\Legends of Dawn\logs\game_lod.htm Note that every new start overwrites the previous log. You can send log files to support@dreamatrix.net

b) If you have suggestion that wasn't well covered before, start a new thread with appropriate name and let's see how others feel about your suggestion

c) Let us know also what you like – it’s inspiring and it shows us where we hit the right direction

Thanks for helping and for being passionate about what you want in and from Legends of Dawn

like i said before i think this game will be one of those classic great games that had a hard launch day
dwitherbee Jun 29, 2013 @ 8:27pm 
Decent game, have enjoyed it a bit. Wish I could go to options panel without a crash. This is what I get:

Still, I do enjoy it, and for me the gameplay is not laggy, and its fun. Would like to try to save some games or bind some keys. Let me know huh.

Thanks

I agree with Boomsticksimo. There is HUGE potential here, and I am 100% behind the developers to help make their dream our reality. Keep up the great work and DO NOT be put off by the immature comments and complete lack of patience on the part of some players. This was marketed (for those that have done their research) as an "old-school" cRPG. So far, for me, it lives up to this reputation and has the potential to become a lot more. Before you say, oh this is just a fan-boy, I have no previous relationship with Dreamatrix and no reason to go beyond my opinions to back them. Playing this takes me back to the days of first installing Baldur's Gate and Gothic; and with continued work, on the developers part, and trust, on the communities, this will be a success.

p.s. Originally the game would hang if I tried to change the resolution from 1680 x 1050 (the default on my PC) to 1920 x 1080, to suit my monitor. I resolved this by editing the config file so it would launch at 1920 x 1080. I'm sure a fix will be implemented but this was a 10 second effort to resolve hence I hope passing this information on will be benficial to those that have had this occur.

Thanks, log sent.

Update: I subsequentially went back and picked a bit and found that when i deleted the keys file under config, although i lost all my key bindings, the game options opened without crashing and I was able to continue and save games and recreate my key bindings.

I never recieved a reply from my email logs I sent, but was able to play, so i guess w/e. I enjoy the game, but now the lack of response concerns me, because I have found other gameplay issues in regards to skills, and would like to work them in a effective manner, which would involve a ticket or issue tracking system or a way to know my issue is being worked or there is a answer (ie. knowledge base).

Thanks for continuing to support and refine the game. I haven't claimed my key yet but I am definitely looking forward to playing this game!

Hey Dreamatrix team! I have some questions about gameplay. First I found a swordfish, not sure what to do with it. Second i keep finding arrows on the ground that highlight when i mouse over them. Third i found a hole with wood across it, how do i get in it? Lastly my faith is stuck at 24/56.

Thanks for the fast update devs!
The 2 main problems I have come across is that faith is stuck at first level. It says it goes up each level, but it never regenerates past first level points.( I am at like 38/65) Which is an issue since I can't use all my buffs and heals during combat.
The second is that I can't click any of the first recipes in crafting ( left hand side).
But, all in all I am enjoying your game. I am one of those gluttons for punishment that like figuring a lot of the aspects out on my own.
Well, back to the game to figure out how to identify items. :)

Could we keep this thread focussed on comments regarding the initial post, and leave the support questions to their related (or new) threads and/or directed to Dreamatrix support? This is a development related post and hence the comments should be related to the topic, lest the whole discussion goes by the way-side.
Nijuu Jun 29, 2013 @ 9:15pm 
This sort of irks me. The DRM free version is already available on Gamersgate, yet doesnt still seem to be yet available for backers.
Seth Jun 29, 2013 @ 9:19pm 
Nijuu, we're working on getting those options available. The issue is, we were unprepared for Steam to release our game on Thursday due to a misunderstanding on our part. We totally understand some people want 100% DRM free games, and it was something we promised would be available in our Kickstarter. This is definitely still a top priority for us, and we want to ensure that people who don't want DRM have an option to play our game.

Big weight off my shoulders concering post-launch support, thanks for the update.
Matheryn Jun 29, 2013 @ 10:20pm 
Thanks for the update its an amazing game that i am currently enjoying - takes me back to baldur's gate days

I would like to know if the camera view is being worked on though and i have also encountered the same faith issues as above posters along with the random highlighted arrows on the ground.

Something im also interested in is larger spaces in home chests IE infinate space and also maybe followers/party companions

The hole with wood over the top is actually a well with water in it.
Once you have an empty container/vessel you can click on the well and it will fill the empty vessel with water.

When used it gives you about 8 sec of faith regen.
Once empty go back to a well and it refills.

Found the swordfish too I imagine it will be for a quest triggered later.I have found that npc give quests out at different times so need to recheck npc in the starter town.
I'm going to do that every odd level.
