The Talos Principle Hotfix 429074 Live Now
Hey boys and girls.

Unfortunately, yesterday's patch was not finalized correctly and upon uploading it to Steam we noticed several issues with it, many of which were reported by the players. The funny thing about those issues was that we weren't able to reproduce them internally, as they only affected the final build that went to Steam and not the one that we test for issues.

We have now identified the issue, fixed it, and the new build is available to download.

The good news is that the issues you may have seen since yesterday could well be resolved with this new build, as they were caused by that weird finalization problem.

The bad news is that there's a 4+ GB patch waiting to be downloaded, so that's a pretty big bummer, we know. Sorry :(

More good news - patches after this one shouldn't be nearly as big.

If you are frustrated (understandingly so) feel free to lay it out on me, I'm a big boy. I'll handle it.

Thanks for understanding. <3

Eakzoor, those types of issues are not caused by the thing mentioned in the thread. Could you open up a new topic in the tech support forum and post your game log files so we can take a look?

ever heard of a delta patch ?

Steam controller camera movement isn't working for me after this patch.
What's up with all this 4.4 GB downloads. I'm gonna have to put this on delay. My ISP has a limit per month and this is sucking it up.

disliking the huge patch, but the fact that you have this tracked down and sorted so fast is worth a shout out. :steamhappy:

You could make a BUNDLE out of the gold edition for us - it's about time, don't you think?

Looks like I've chosen the wrong weekend to finally try Road to Gehenna. Third huge download in two days. Three more hours of waiting on my slow ADSL connection. At least my traffic isn't limited.

where do users get the hotfix? Talos Principle shows black screen now, cannot start it.

I did fix this and I believe it's something like Steam->Settings->Controller->General Controller Settings then disable the "XBox Configuration Support" but if that's wrong Google for how... also, the OPPOSITE solution (sigh) fixes the same problem in the game "Prey" so if I change it for Prey I have to change it back for The Talos Principle and vice versa. Aaaargh!

It's disappointing that the fix for the previous update requires everyone to download another 4+GB patch.
I'm very lucky that I have a good 50mbps connection and pay for unlimited data, but I fully understand the plight of those that don't have either or both.

I do, however, applaud your prompt and frank communication. I wish more developers would behave like you do.

No doubt most of this patch has identical data to the previous. Is this a limitation of steam's updater, or is it your processes?

The reason for a big download is that the issue was in content finalization, rather than code.
So everyone had to redownload properly finalized content.

A bummer, I know.

You are literally the worst Danny. That's it, I'll add you to my list *scribbles* /s
