    Looking at that list it says 4 new quest NPCs to the "Underworld"... what about the other quest NPCs that were there previously and disappeared? Unless that's all of them.. I can think of one that made a "fishy" request that doesn't seem to be on the list though, or at least I don't think he is (maybe I forgot his name?).

    Client-side patch is just going out now - usually means Retribution will go down shortly for its publish.
     
  8. Race change tokens? How do you get these?

    They will be given to people who buy an SA upgrade in the first few weeks (3 tokens per upgrade)

    Imbuing enhancements, really?
     
  11. So nothing yet on the cursor placement or key mapping issues?

    *goes back to 2D*

    ....That fix would be in the Enhanced client updates, not the open beta publishes. <_<

    What do you mean by this... cursor placement?
    Key mapping... I still get the map pop out if I hit Alt M, but M is my map. (in non legacy chat mode).

    ...

    Some of the notes provided are comedy gold!

    Tamed chicken lizard should no longer go vorpal when told to attack

    Fixing incubating egg reverting to stage 2 from stage 3

    Fixed Vorpal speedhacking battle chickens

    Fixed an issue with the 3rd puzzle, you can now solve it.
     
  15. The cursor in SA is about 1/4 inch off from where it's showing it is on screen.


    Not map keys. Key mapping. Both the Alt and Ctl keys have delays on them that shouldn't be there, so any macros you use that have either of those keys are delayed as well.

    Before I guess it was a conundrum rather than a puzzle.

    I'm getting mad rubberbanding all over Ter Mur, in both clients. Honestly it seems to be far, FAR worse in the SA client with me barely being able to move around the map due to the number of spots I get caught up on... whatever you did, the clients didn't like it.

    For 2D its probably map changes without a patch causing it (seems to jsut be a moderate number of aras south of the royal city).. but god only knows what it is for SA.

    Seems to be most everything south and west of the city, where the manor houses are and such.

    It looks like SA might have gotten patched with an earlier version of the map to me.. stuff that was removed the patch before this one is suddenly back, but impassable.

    I see the fix for the Flames from fire pits didn't make this patch. I am
    still unable to get to the 2nd floor of my house in SA due to this bug. Maybe
    next patch will have it and yes I have submitted a bug report via the menu
    3 times.

    IDK if you found this out or not but put the client in full screen mode. Everything will line up. I have the same problem. I know it isnt a proper fix but makes it less annoying.

    The problem with that is that I have a ton of things I need to have displayed (icq, vent, paint.net, whatever work I SHOULD be doing, etc) that I can't see in full screen mode.

    If it were possible to play in windowed mode, then I'd be in the new client full time, but as it stands, I can't because of the mouse-pointer issues.

    That and the issue where if the party has more than six people, the party health bars get attached to the mouse cursor.

    CAREFUL : SPOILER : PICTURE INTENSIVE

    DEVS PLEASE READ DUE TO BUGS !

    FEEDBACK TO THE CAVERN SO FAR :
    OKAY.. honestly ... watch this :

    A little story first.. i went there and killed a few monster noticing different types of monsters were spawning afetr a few mins - just like a champ spawn without an altar... after killing these new types.. at the end a "normal rat" spawned -
    View attachment 2153
    View attachment 2154
    View attachment 2155
    View attachment 2158

    1. 1st BUG : The rats corpse says "A Clan Scratch Chieftain", but the actual monster doesnt show this name but has a normal rat name instead.(picture is underneath)
    2. 2nd : I do not know if its a bug, but the chieftain has ??? Hit Points, and a base damage of 7-9 (!!!) and it just drops a bunch of... well actually it doesnt drop ANY magic items or ANYTHING AT ALL.
      View attachment 2156
    3. 3rd : Almost ALL of these new monsters have MASSIVE amounts of hps, arent dealing a lot of damage and arent droping anything useful, or anything at all.

    Well thats what ive figured so far, but i think theres more...
     
  29. This is in both full screen and window mode...

    This happened to me the first time I loaded Enhanced, but fixed it's self.
    Maybe uninstall your mouse drivers? I had an issue where my logitech mouse would not bind my thumb buttons so when I uninstalled the drivers (now on generic), my mouse works perfect.
     
  31. The only problem with that is it's not just me, so unless messing with my drivers will fix everyone else, we've still got a problem.
     
  32. The only time I have this problem is using Legacy containers, otherwise it seems fine on my screen. Do you have the LC enabled?
     
  33. Yes I do. That doesn't mean it still doesn't need to be fixed as it's a huge issue. I think more than not will be using the legacy option, especially when working with vendors. The legacy options in the client are one of the primary reasons why so many 2D users are giving SA a try where they didn't with KR.

    More 2D rubberbanding aroudn the Royal City's pub, including off of the grassy parts of the hill behind it... did you guys decorate these places fully finally but not patch the maps for it or something?

    Also, Percolem and the people at the pub, as well as the inn's inkeeper, have all seemingly vanished as well...
     
  35. ok, so what was going on with the chicken lizards? lol
