Look at you and your white knight s*** getting all offended on behalf of people you don't even know. Why do you give a s*** about them or what I do with my time? You're obviously judging me for calling out other people on being lame. I don't give a s*** about them. I'm just surprised these people can't be bothered to use the stock V or take 10 seconds swap a nose, hair color, or skin shade. They're trying to save time? They probably spent more time browsing, downloading, unpacking, and moving the save file than it would have to just make their own V.

save game file =/= mod
I edited the .ini myself for the dodge/crouch swap mod. Took all 60 seconds to do it. I put my money where my mouth is.

@ACel13
That's just as equally lame and a really petty excuse. you are just too lazyfor browsing, downloading, unpacking, and moving the ini file.
Pathetic.

I think that's enough, you guys can just agree to disagree on this one.

CDPR have released Hotfix 1.12 that fixes the exploit, meaning we're lifting the ban on save games.

It's a real shame, but the Witcher 3 was the exact same problem. People even dubbed it the Glitcher 3 if I remember correctly. Witcher 3 is now very highly regarded of course, so I think with enough time it'll become much much better

Hence I do not understand the reactions. I am a software engineer myself and what the company tried with this game is not easy, there are a lot interconnected complex scripting systems going on. I have pre-ordered the game and I did not have played it because I knew this would happen. I have installed the game to check its binaries, giving me an insight of what for challenges they (the developers) have to tackle down. Because of our high expectations, the developers have to program complex pieces of code that are all connected with each other into a single application. Having bugs in new complex AAA games is inevitable nowadays.

Even RDR2, a game that is well-owned and even won two steam awards for 2020 had launch issues when it was available for PC (I got it on Rockstar Launcher) and it took Rockstar months to iron out the majority of the problems. Those that owns the game on Steam have already a RDR2 game with two or three huge patches ready for them on the day of the release (the launch was a month after that one on Rockstar launcher).

Therefore I do not agree with the majority of the complaints here. Yes I understand that there are problems that should not be a part of the delivered product but it is not fair to complain or criticize for that. Give the company some credit (because of their earlier products and current service) and see if they are able to iron it out the months after. This is not the first game that is unfinished at launch. Hell, even Batman: Arkham Knight got two delays and had a lot negative reviews on the day of launch. That game is now having a good rating because of the numerous patches the months after.

You can thank the people who sent death threats to CDPR for the delay...along with media pressure to release it.

?The reason they released it so early is because people nagged them, sadly. The problem is the crunch they had, not that it was too early to release. A lot of content got cut out/rushed and I think if they never had the crunch then cyberpunk would've released in late december - mid january. It's a real shame, but the Witcher 3 was the exact same problem. People even dubbed it the Glitcher 3 if I remember correctly. Witcher 3 is now very highly regarded of course, so I think with enough time it'll become much much better.

I'm a game tester. We generally start crunch months before devs do. Basically whenever there's a milestone, testers are crunching to get ready for it, crunching to get through it and crunching to finish it while devs get to enjoy their weekends. When they do have to do overtime, I've seen them get lunch (and/or dinner) paid for them. Hell on one project the devs had dinner catered. They locked down the cafeteria and had actual catering come in. It was paid for by the company. Devs whining about crunch is just that. Whining. They are paid more, know to expect it (it's not a secret and hasn't been so for ages), and most of the time the crunch in their own fault.

Crunch wouldn't happen if they spread the work out over a longer period of time and managed their time better. A lot of game development is smooth sailing for a while, then cram for a deadline. Panic when things go wrong. Cram some more and then go back to smooth lazy sailing once the deadline has passed.

This isn't only a case of the public nagging them. Sure it didn't help, but there isn't 8 years of development worth of content in the game. Not to mention how the CEO was talking about about the many features we never got just last year. Just a couple months before release he even stated "The game runs surprisingly well" on the older consoles, which was a blatant lie. Why all the hoopla about putting a penis on a girl character when it changes absolutely nothing in the game (You can't even see it anywhere in the game except the menu)?

What actually happened in the CEO made a ton of promises and got a fat head from an inflated ego. Developed a game for 6-7 years, then somehow got Keanu Reeves involved, and at the same time also announced a release date. Wanting to brown nose to Keanu, they tried to change everything they had developed for 6-7 years to revolve around him. In about a year they had to rebuild everything they had instead of finishing content that needed to be finished, which is probably why so many of the features that were talked about were cut or are barely in the game.

They had to build a game in the time that's usually used for polish. All because of the ego and hubris of the CEO.

?Unlike Cyberpunk 2077 that was shipped on a disc and advertised as a finished product, Baldur's Gate 3 is still in Early Access phase. Devs themselves stated that the high price is dedicated for the hardcore fanbase that is willing to embrace the game for what it is.

Early Access is basically pay to be a game tester (instead of being paid like I do) and get the game for "free" (because you already paid for it) when/if the game eventually comes out.

The problem is people are dumb and equate early access/beta/alpha to being a demo/preview. You see it all the time. Company puts out an Alpha/beta or enters early access people get access and immediately the forums and anywhere talking about it is full of people complaining about all the bugs and how the game is unfinished, and in cases where they paid demanding a refund.

This game will never be finished or fixed. Patch (a) broke (z), patch (z) broke c, and d) patch (c,and d) broke (a) again. Just put a damn sticker on (Early Access) Not even mass effect andromeda was this bad at launch day. CDPR should have done the right thing and not to release this garbage code collection called game. At least if they must hit the market they should put a sticker on it a "Early Access Pre-Alpha" so we should know what to expect. I purchased updates for my Alienware 17 R4 laptop in a form of an Alienware Graphics Amp with RTX 2080 OC. Regardless CDPR say this "game" runs nice on 1660. I don't really experience the nicely run part on my RTX 2080 4k with only 6GB vram used out of 8GB, only bugs. Even with patch 1.12 i still falling through the map, i tried turning resolution down, and its just getting worst in performance. I give up on this game and better not to bother any more. Deeply regret buying it for 59 on launch. My female character regularly have a penis clipping through her pants. REALLY????
