HOTFIX : We just updated patch 2 to fix an issue with medikits disappearing from backpack when using one of them under some circumstances.

Glad to see that the game is getting better and better. Please put PC graphics options on the agenda for patch 3, then everyone should be happy. :Ulukai:

Still suffering from low fps in okriana:

I have a mid to low end machine, as seen in the screenshot above, but I still think it could perform better. Also, frame limiter seems to be removed from the exclusive fullscreen mode, and the frametime in normal fullscreen mode seems wrong @30fps. Other than that, the game just keeps getting better and better! In the next patch there could be an option to hide the mini map in the cutscenes as well.

Great patch! From 30fps I went straight up to 60 :).

Any possibility to add different colored huds in the future? I'm really missing the neon green :)

Same problem. 40fps in Okriana with a GTX1080 with 17% GPU usage and 40% CPU usage. In others levels, 60 fps but weird fps drops to 40fps sometimes.
Hope to a fix.
still cant talk to sadar or zidar

Workers in Motazaar are singing normal as in the original game on my system...

Good job! Keep going :steamhappy:

Thank you so much for listening and adding the option to disable those word definitions! It was easily the most important thing you fixed. Now Outcast Second Contact is a worthy remake of the original in my eyes. Great job!!!
Could you still add a prone stance for Cutter? :D I know that it sounds silly to request this feature but I think it made hiding from enemies feel much more intense than just crouching because Cutter then really tries to "blend" with his surroundings. I loved hiding from enemies in Talanzaar rooftops by proning and observing my enemies below me :D

I can confirm that. No missing sounds at all. Some minor quality problems, though. And the effects/surround were better in the original with EAX.

Hi !
I'm not used to Steam so if someone can answer to this simple question : how do you check if the patch has been installed ?
Thanks !!!
Raff Dec 29, 2017 @ 3:38am 
Hi,

if you didn't change Steam's options, updates kick in autimatically. To be sure, navigate to X:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Outcast - Second Contact and hover with your mouse on the outcast.exe. Should be version 5.6.3.5981.

Greetings from Germany,
Raff
