Thank you!

I played as a heavy fighter now maybe next time I will be a mage.

Can I ask when will the game be complete? I mean I know that bugs are not fully foreseeable but I want to wait at least a version where all the quests and sidequests will be solvable!

Keep up the good work guys!

The patch should be available within the next one or two weeks and I guess there will be a changelog or patch notes so that you can check what has been fixed/changed.

Most sidequests should work fine after installing the patch and starting a new campaign.

Will freegame be fixed? It's rather ridiculous that free game multiplayer still isn't playable, 3 months after buying the game.

How about the quest descriptions in free game? Will they finally be correct? (Such as 5 badges instead of 4.) Having to scour the forums for the 'correct' journal entries is just absolute crap.

I really love the Spellforce games, but the bad support and amount of (unfixed) bugs is really off-putting.

I think the support isn't bad at all. Every time I visit the Forums I found the answer for my question and if not I ask and I always get an answer within days.

The problem is that there wasn't any successful part since The Shadow Of The Phoenix and many gamers left or forgot the game... the remaining few (us) needs to hold out until our favorite series rise again (SpellForce 3). We need to help / support each other and keep the Forums and the games alive.

I'm sure they'll fix a lot of bugs with the upcoming patch and also they will release future fixes to enhance the gaming experience!

Releasing a game with broken gamemodes and not fixing it for 3+ months IS pretty bad support.

You're sure they'll fix a lot of bugs in the upcoming patch? The patches for the previous expansions left in quite a load of bugs. For example: The fireforge map bug in free game mode has been in there for YEARS. Both the fid and dotp multiplayer forums have threads about this bug, but it's never been fixed.

How about balancing the game? The shaikan have been overpowered since the release of dragon storm, nothing's been done to fix that. The same thing happened for the nameless faction.

There's just an overall lack of quality and dedication to fixing the game. Everything gets done half assed. Take for example the widescreen support: there's lots of screen elements that are just getting stretched, there's been no effort to properly support widescreen it seems.

Even when the community does a lot of work to fix something, and the fix gets incorporated into the game (saves the devs a lot of time), the implementation still gets done badly. The freegame mode restoration project has been included in to the game, but the devs couldn't even be arsed to update the in game descriptions for a lot of quests. So now freegame mode is even more of a mess. You have to look up the correct quest requirements outside of the game, because a lot of the numbers im game are simply wrong, that's really bad.

The upcoming patch will probably leave a lot of bugs unfixed, like the bugs I've noted in this post. Stuff like this makes me question why I keep buying these games. This'll probably be the last spellforce release that I've bought when it turns out the upcoming patch turns out lackluster.

There's a lot of bugs to fix - mostly in single player, and some multiplayer ones.

Balancing would be good, although I doubt it's currently a priority. I didn't see many players play at the time, due to some bugs.

FiD has been fixed a bit as far as I know, so I do have hope that Nordic Games and Mind Over Matter can fix the DotP more.

As far as i know there will be no fixes/changes for the free game mode. Moreover some of these bugs aren't fixable, because of codeissues (Without Phenomic its almost impossible to fix such problems). The campaign and the multiplayer was set to high priority for the upcoming patch.

Cool, still.

I do hope Spellforce 3 will have a lot less bugs. And also good cinematics, both CGI and in-game

Mano was likely talking about user-2-user support here within the boards, which is not too bad, I'd say.

That's not a "real" bug as it does not happen on every machine nor in every game nor for everybody every time. So it's not only due to game code but also matter of hardware, drivers or whatever.
I'm not trying to excuse anything by saying this, just saying that this sort of bug is hard to hunt down especially if it's not your code and nobody of original coders is around to help with this.

Zitat:

Balancing is IMHO no bug to fix; that's a "feature", developer's wilful decision to have it like this. Of course it's up to player/customer to like or dislike this.
(And up to devs to listen to community's feedback and tweak balancing if they wanted to; true)
Luckily, you can play without the factions you deem imba outside the campaigns.

Hardly can argue this ...

Haven't seen official patch notes yet, but I'd say it'd be a fair guess assuming the patch will be mainly addressing single player campaign and technical issues, crashes and such.

But let's wait and see the patch before prejudicing things yet to come.

Yep. That's what I meant. To be honest I never had to turn to the official support so I don't know it's quality.

However I can agree with some points of Psychoray's opinion. For the first game (Order of Dawn) there was fixes, patches...etc. Also I never used Free Game or Multiplayer at all (I think the game is based on the Campaign/Story, I don't see the need of other game modes).

After JoWood went defunct everything went down. The game remained but I think SpellForce now is just "as is". We have a weird paradox here: The game isn't so popular because of the bugs and other unfinished features and because of that not so many people are buying the game. In the other hand because not so many people are buying it that's why the fixes and patches don't get so big attention.

I think there has to be a balanced way where the game gets up it's fame again and the users will get their required support level. I hope SpellForce 3 will be made for years at least to ensure that.

Oh and about the cinematics: In SpellForce 2 I think there was mainly animations and there were lack of cutscenes. In SpellForce 3 there would be good if the movie styled cinematics could return (like Order of Dawn, Breath of Winter, Shadow of the Phoenix intros and outros) with a lot more cutscenes!

I have shawdow wars.. There are so many SF games..lol


What are the actual expansions for shawdow wars?

I just bought Dragon storm

Demons of the past is also tied to Shawdow wars as well? Are there any others I'm missing.

any clarification of this would be awesome if possible thanks

No, Faith in Destiny and Demons of the Past are stand-alone games, which means you don't need Shadow Wars/Dragon Storm or any other Spellforce 2 game installed prior to installing them.

They aren't as good, but good to have and finish them.
