Testlive Hotfix (11.05.2019) - Critical fixes

Hey everybody!

We’ve releasing a new hotfix for the game that should take care of a few critical issues introduced with the last patch. We would be grateful if you could check it out and let us know if you find any major issues so we increase our confidence with respect to releasing this version live as soon as possible. In particular, we’re interested to know if you experience any major issues regarding corpses physics and the ability to loot them.

One of the critical issues addressed in this hotfix was the ability to knock out and break some NPC bosses, which is completely unintentional. Since it could result in some critical balancing problems within the game, there will be a targeted wipe of any boss-mob that has been captured: that affects ALL NPCs from the Dagon dungeon and the emissaries from the Volcano area (Emissary of Haon-Dor and Emissary of Tsathouggu).

This wipe will come into action once all official servers are being restarted to apply the patch when it is released live. We sincerely apologize for the short notice, but we agreed that this would cause an extreme imbalance in the game mechanics if not acted upon swiftly.

Thanks again community for your continued feedback and support.


Please remember that updates can mess with your installed mods. We suggest taking a backup of your current database before updating to any new patch if you have mods installed.

Separate TestLive Product on Steam

We heard your input regarding the inconvenience with having to switch back and forth between the main game and our TestLive servers. To make it easier for you and because we really value your testing and feedback, we added a separate product for the TestLive server on Steam.

If you own Conan Exiles on Steam, you should now see a separate Product called “Conan Exiles - Testlive Client” in your library which gives you the option to install an additional instance of the game specifically for the TestLive servers. Please be aware that this will prompt you for a full additional installation.

We are aware that not everyone wants install or has space for two full installations. For those of you who don’t want to play through the additional TestLive Client, you can still access the TestLive servers through our old method.

Before you put in more content maybe you should worry more about making the official servers more stable and not crash every 30 seconds to 5 minutes, that is how you can keep people playing more and purchase more of your content.

:smiley:

As soon as I get play time, I am going to jump on this for you. Being able to adjust the admin panel is very important for the Solo.Co-op players. Thanks for checking into it.

No god bubble Fix? upon server reset it disappears, so lasts 1 raid time, its already extreme that you now had to farm 500 kills for 500 zeal for a bubble but now they only last 1 raid time not 2, bloody joke.

Climbed in the hole between Jungle and Frozen North. Climbed in, climbed up that tall center pillar, climbed out.

No flickering corpses and none disapeared

Changed several settings in the admin and they appeared to have saved.

What about the issue with doors/gates where you can’t open underwater and if you have multiple doors you keep opening and closing the first one. You cant look through an open door anymore you just see the door even when open.

Don’t have allot of time to test today but passage is climbable again and corpses stay and stopped flickering. Good job.

Exactly! I mean I guess we’ll have to wait months for this one to get fixed and tbh that’s extremely frustrating and a little poor from Funcom to not even acknowledge or mention it at all here in this patch.

I mean even if they said they was working on that still but don’t have a fix yet we could at least know that but to totally leave us in the dark about it is not right.

This is so the exact same hotfix and build than the current live one. Exact ?

Can we expect a new testlive patch soon ? Just to know where do my tests, and not do all in double check. :wink:

@Ignasis

Trying to confirm: * Fixed an issue that made a number of NPCs unavailable in the game.

Does this mean that T4 alchemists are spawning correctly once again?

They should be. Please let us know on the PC bugs and updates section if that’s not the case (this patch is now on the live version)

Is the patch available for ps4 yet?

Ok, thanks for the confirmation, so now this and the livebuild are identical.

Good to know, and not double check all. :wink:

Yes, can confirm, did similar climbing tests in the passage.

This is working fine again for me.

Edit: settings also are working now like intended. Thanks !

Ok so ive noticed one my server 3003 EU region some of our building pieces have just gone from existence. My archer towers have been cut in half and our fully upgraded yog altar vanished and we ended up spending loads more time making it again. Please fix these issues as building the same stuff over and over again is time consuming and boring if im honest and I dont wanna leave the game as I enjoy so much when it works.

Please use this section for Testlive discussions. For PS4, please write in its designated section.
Thanks.

There hasn’t been a test live patch in going on 2 weeks.

There are still loads of bugs. Is funcom throwing in the towel on fixing bugs? Are the bugs still here really so hard to fix that in 2 weeks no bugs have been dealt with enough to patch for testing? It’s been a week and there have been no fixes on Live either.

They me be focused on some PVP PVE-c exploits that are pretty much game breaking right now. This will happen when they have a major issue. Everything else gets moved back code wise. Art department probably the only ones not effected at all. Maybe the AI department, but the actual coders who hand le everything else are probably trying to figure out the right fix, where it occurred, and how it can be prevented in future patches.
