You're right, now that they're owned by Microsoft they'll maybe start reading those. laugh I'll put in a ticket today.

It seems I spoke too soon. There's definitely something strange still going on. The saves I made yesterday are there and work, but if I reload some older saves and then try to load those I made recently, it'll load up one older save where I'm about to enter the chopper before the endgame no matter what save I load. laugh And now it's asking me about the brightness and saturation again.. The saves started to work correctly only after rebooting the game. Insane. headspin

I thought about starting over as well but I fear losing the saves where I'm at the end of Arizona / in California and the chance to try to pop the Scavenger achievement.

I have that same version.

I put in a ticket over the weekend. Fingers crossed for a response and better yet, a fix!

How this game is so unbelievably screwed up is beyond me. I can understand things like glitches/broken quests, etc. Even unobtainable achievements... I can at least fathom how these issues can occur.

But to have the save system so utterly broken that the game is literally unplayable for (what seems like) the majority of players... just utterly baffles me. It's like it didn't even get tested whatsoever.

I'm wondering if they tested the live version of the game at all. My first ticket way back in like January of 2017 was answered and they said at the time they could not reproduce the issue and it never came up during MS certification. Maybe the dev build is fine but something went wrong when it got published to the actual marketplace?

No response to my ticket or forum post yet.

I sent a private message on their forums to one of the moderators and this was their response:

"Hey there, the answer has been "no" for bizdev reasons, and as far as I know that's still the case. Obviously, with the Microsoft acquisition, that may change, but as of right now we don't have current plans to update the game on that platform yet."

Basically it would cost too much money based on how many copies it sold is what I'm reading. Pretty shitty. I say we keep on them, try to include Microsoft somehow. Shit needs to be fixed.

I might consider getting a refund from Microsoft then. I paid full price for it (I'm assuming we all did - don't know if it's ever been on sale) - which is a decent chunk of money for a literally unplayable game.

It will be the first time I've ever tried to get a video game refund after 30 years. If that isn't a clear indicator of how screwed this is, then I don't know what is.

Well, at least you got a response. Bit strange, considering they just patched something. I wish they'd have patched the Scavenger achievement if they're going to drop this game. If they leave this as is, this'll be the last game I purchase from the Windows Store.

It's been on sale at least once, I bought it at a discount.

It's a shame, I've had my eye on this for a while (I game a fair bit on PC, may as well have achievements, never really been invested in Steam) and pop in every so often to check if it has been patched. Would much prefer this on PC having cut my proverbial RPG teeth on the likes of Fallout and Baldur's Gate, but expected it to never get fixed. I;ll likely end up getting it on GoG Hoping the acquisition breathes some life into it. From Games with Windows live to the Windows store and play anywhere, with all the bugs in between, it's always been a disaster.

Perhaps with the new gen and a raft of high profile first party titles (and Game pass) they really will get it up and running. Kind of works for other publishers with the likes of Oirign.

lol I put a ticket in on Nov 24th and got a response today:

"Hey there thanks for writing in.

This may help with the saves: https://steamcommunity.com/app/240760/discussions/1/14832329...

As for the Achievements, according to the developers, any achievement that happens in multiple parts will not grant it until all parts are completed, this may be why you haven't unlocked the "Scavenger" achievement yet.

Hope this helps!

Sent me info about the Steam version, and clearly has no idea what the hell she's talking about regarding the achievement system. I don't know why I bother with help tickets, the people who work them have zero clue about the technical stuff they're supposedly answering questions for. She literally googled my problem and gave me the first response, like I didn't try that before coming to them for help! Pathetic.

A steam solution from 2014, nice. laugh

That reeks of Microsoft levels of 'support', so it'll fit in quite well with the changeover. I had an issue with game saves disappearing in another game and they kept trying to send me to TA to get a solution to my achievement problem.... Couldn't understand the difference.

Oh my God, I didn't even notice the date! A solution from before this version existed will surely be my answer! lol

We get people making new accounts at XBA once or twice a month saying that support sent them to us for help as well, it's crazy.

I received a response as well, and it's almost the same you got, word for word. I then replied back that I tried popping the Scavenger achievement using the perk and that it works on the steam and console versions, leading me to think that it's bugged. We'll see what happens next. laugh
