An update on the next console patch:

Unfortunately it won’t happen but everybody needs to stick to their guns and not buy the DLC for full price and just wait for it to drop in price. and having to wait much longer is ridiculous. business wise only putting effort in PC and not all platforms can’t be the most lucrative way of running a company. more than half their sales is on the console side.

It’s an inexpensive way to keep the lineage of your games by allowing the public the mod them I think Bethesda do this long ago fun come we’re smart. But I think they’re following the path of wild card for the console side you still don’t have mods for ark like developers are just doing what they can to collect paycheck since things are so rough in the world right now with pandemic

Watched the dev stream… 2.3 sounds optimistic, 2.4(only god knows how long this will take to come out)… Supposedly will have more complete effect to performance and stability. Heres my take, again i cant tell nobody wat to do. Anyways i will not spend a dollar on conan exiles until 2.4 is released. And the only way that would change is if 2.3 has a better than expected effect on performance/stability. Do wat u want but zarr’s right about everyone holding out to make a point of these last 7months. I realize times are tough for everyone including the employees at funcom, but a broken game for 7months and counting is un-excusable if thats even a word.

I recomend you watch the livestream in its entirety. It explains a lot kid. You are most likely causing your own crashes.

I watched it and, ‘likely causing your own crashes,’ just no.

Greetings!

We’re linking the Stream recap here to help answer some of your questions.

Our team talked about incoming changes to the base game and to Isle of Siptah, console update, and much more.
A huge thank you to @Multigun for putting this together!

This is the there last chance to fix these issues or there gonna lose everyone. 1. Porking 2.dropping the server with warmaker keys. 3. Undermeshing if these are not fixed…I’m done

Im sure Im not the only one thinking this but here is a few things that I think could potentially improve the already strenuous relationship between xbox players and Funcom.

  1. Use the specs for the lowest grade xbox running a high grade server if you can make that at least 60% stable then chances are most players would be ok not many people still playing on gen1 Xbox One.

  2. Ask around your Modder Community and see if any of them would agree to let their Mods to be released on consoles as FREE DLC. Good example would be structure texture and placeables Mods.

  3. And lastly most Xbox players have no idea what an OOM crash is much less what can cause them, so perhaps try releasing a dev letter or thread that better explains the crashes what causes them and maybe some preventive measures we as players can take to make crashes less frequent.

Just by reading the notes from the dev stream it sounds like they are using the Series S as they’re benchmark basically flushing Xbox one and One X players down the sewer. And I would not be a bit surprised that they are still the majority of the playerbase to be honest.

I also still don’t understand how a parity patch to version 1.8 which started this mess (well to be truthfull the mounts update is when this game went south stability wise but 1.8 made it unmanageable) which added nothing to the game simply some changes to current assets could exacerbate an OOM problem so significantly that even the opening cinematic cannot run smoothly and even single player games are impossible to play. I believe there is far more wrong other than out of memory issues.

Also they explain OOM crashes pretty well in the stream notes above, and to prevent them is easy.

1- Never ever leave noob river
2- don’t build any structures bigger than a 1x1 shack with no roof.
3- never have more than one thrall.
4- this is optional but you can also uninstall the game until it is fixed like I did after 4 months of no communication and 2 temporary site bans for just posting facts and very well deserved criticism.

Take note Funcom, on 3 16 gta v put out an update that caused all xbox players to not be able to get on or if you did get on you would dashboard. Not even 24 hours later its patched. Now that is customer service. Point is, gta v listened to a pc modder and tried to improve the load speed for pc and it jacked xbox. But they fixed it without concern of how it would affect pc, keep all your player base happy, not just cater to one group. Thats why im on gta v and not ce. And why I wont be coming back or buying anything else from your company.

PC parity…looking at the amount of bug topics and posts about PC being full of bugs, some from 2.3, and considering the amount of bugs already on XB, along with OOM issues, and the fact that i love commas😁, makes me feel like stability should be a standalone update. A reasonable amount of time and testing to determine if it works as intended would also be agreeable. That time could be used to patch the 2.3 bugs on PC first. 2.3 could be adapted or duplicated for XB then released. I just dont want 2.3 to make things even worse.

I urge anyone from FC that sees this post, to please carry this suggestion to the appropriate person, presented with sincere concern and respect for the XB consumers that have waited an exuberant amount of time plagued by bugs and an inability to play CE.

Please dont allow 2.3 to deteriorate CE, or its community any further.

I crashed the game by playing the game?

Buy a series S the game does not lag on it, it just crashes every so many hours which is still annoying.

I know you shouldn’t have to upgrade to play this game, the Devs should be fixing it but Tencent are still new here and sometimes these games can be a life draining experience. Wouldn’t surprise me if some poor sod is stuck in there Dev department 24 seven pulling shift to sort this out.

I have a feeling that last gen consoles were not ready for Conan, it’s a demanding game in last gen and me buying the series S and noticing such a difference on it compared to Xbox one is very noticeable.

Ark had similar problems and they sorted it abit where draw distance was toned down more, they also eventually fixed the crashing which is the most annoying thing.

If they are using the series S as a benchmark it’s because player who have a series s like me have noticed how stable it is. All that’s wrong is the crashing, if they can fix that then they can venture outwards to the Xbox one, Xbox one X and series X. The series is is now like the console that smoothly runs Conan exiles and they have most likely bought one of them to test it for themselves after I and others have reported it.

I think if we put the crashing to the side for a moment with which we know that needs to be fixed in all consoles. With that aside we can see how smoothly it runs Conan exiles, everything is magnified and looks ace, no lag not matter the big base you build. The problem I see for last gen consoles is that last gens were not ready for Conan and the only way I can think they sort the lag out is to tone down graphics, draw distance and optimise it more for last gen.

Conan is a demanding game made for pc at the time and it’s very noticeable that last gens suffer with running it. So we move onto next gen and people buy the cheapest machine which has upgraded everything and people start finding out that the series S is a real price of hardware that can play those demanding games that last gen couldn’t.

I think MS realised this and though let’s get a machine that can run these pc titles out there and for the cheapest we can do it and here we have the series s.

My advice is bite the bullet and get a series S guys and then they can just deal with a memory leak issue, should you have to buy a series S, no, but hey gaming is moving on up now and we need to get with the times.

I can not afford to upgrade my xbox. Its not ‘‘biting the bullet’’ for some people, its litterally NOT POSSIBLE for me at all.

That was my point.
Someone saying our gameplay causes the game to crash?
That’s just silly. :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

I repair my armor, game crashes.
I look in a thralls inventory, game crashes.
I run into a random area of the map, game crashes.
I open the inventory of a workbench, game crashes.
I fight 1-10 NPC’s, game crashes.
Etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.

We play the game, the game crashes.
And this is on an XB Series X.

You keep saying last gen was not ready for Conan, then why did I play it for over 2 years on xbox one x? I would crash every once in a while and had little lag around some bases, usually people who where glitching resources would lag you. Im not saying it was good with no problems, but it was totally able to play. The real problems started after tencent bought funcom and they started on the isle dlc. Since they dropped isle to pc, xbox has been broke. And i will be getting a new series xbox but it will never see CE. Point is game was playable 7 months ago when they broke it, and they have done nothing to fix it, and have done tons of updates for pc, and the ones for xbox were to the core game so they could do a update for pc. Sorry thats what I see.

I can buy one. Where can I buy one? Everyone sold out. Doesnt matter it would never see CE.

Right, been playing for years and now here they come saying its not ready for this game. Problem started with Isle drop to pc. They had to do something to core game that messed things up this bad. New system for a game that has worked for years cause the system wasnt ready for game. Doesnt make sense to me. Them messing with core game for Isle dlc, way more sense. Game worked till then on my not ready xbox one, so take it how you want.

Well Funcom better hurry up as time waits for nobody and you have eleven days left actually ten since you’re in Norway.
