I can confirm that the freeze and crashing issues are much worse if you do not have a Playstation Pro. I swapped consoles with my sister and went from crashing every ten minutes to maybe twice during raid time. (Our player list is 30+ during raid time) I play on a very active Official PvP server so limiting the build or use of thralls/pets for defense is not an option. The crashing always occurs when I am in my inventory, and more often if I have a full inventory and moving items into boxes or benches.
I always report the crash with a clip. What I want to know is what else can we as players do to help get this issue addressed? Not everyone has the option to upgrade to a Pro or hard line and while I understand it is being “looked into” by the developers it would be nice to see a bit more feedback. On a computer there are options to reduce video settings is this not possible for consoles?
and Point Number 3 of the “Internal Game Development Prioritization” slide, displayed and commented the 27th of August through the Funcom Q2 Financial Presentation does not seem to be good for Single Players … Slide displayed at 15’06".
I’m really curious to see if the incoming patch will include something for performances enhancement … for consoles like PS4.
Even Firespark got pissed off with some mod kits, which did not DO anything at all. Or remove durability completely…
Like did that even someone, just 1 person, ever test before throwing at testlive? Because for sure it wasnt…
Testlive = public beta. Normaly that means, that INTERNAL TESTERS tested it, but it looks like FC has no testers at all or they just tested the DLC content.
I understand that it was vacation time, but how many devs are working at CE? 1? Because it honestly does not look like more than 1… They have many designers, because new stuff comes, but fixing really stupid bugs is impossible.
New stuff means munne, fixing issues means 0 cash.
Many things are still non functional from day 1, many of ‘em are just basic functions…
But new stuff is always released, and there is some “activity” behind that, but it is money driven (I can understand it, I do not think devs works for Glory), I saw some dev replies here that froze my bones… “dyng hair clothes? I will inform our developing team”
Geez, this simple issue has been reported since the day of the release, and still recenlty I read this “devs reportation” , I feel a lil’ unconfortable with these answers…
So I just had a look at the TOP forum post to see where this forum stands and it is not even in the list, Come on funcom, have you hidden it, if so that is totally out of order, TOP posts are TOP posts. The only way it comes up for me is if I go to it through my notification and click on a previous comment???
FYI, the patch dowloaded and installed well and the new dlc did too.
But I got my first freeze after a run in between 2 of my (numerous small size) bases when opening the admin panel.
So globally it sounds ok till now. No regression. Same freezing frequency.
I still expect some enhancement as it’s told in the patch delivery that performances and crash were worked on
We do have a hotfix in the pipeline and are gathering more information on the crashes that some users are experiencing, it would be of great help to us if anyone that’s currently experiencing them after the last update shares what’s triggering them ( trying to login to an official server, opening a chest, loading a base, etc ), and if they occur both in singleplayer and online modes.
My crashes are mostly related to rendering but too much items in storage seems to be the culprit as I recently tested this theory and it was successful. I build 10x10 2 wall high ceiling box 2 thralls 4 lights every bench and 100 large chests full of stone. When in there it’s fine. Travel to unnamed city and as soon as I get inside the box game froze and crashed. Every time. I play ps4 1tb 2015 gen 250mb wired internet amd app is installed on 500gb external ssd. this was done on Official server
