The patch seems to have combined 2 of the first one's for PC, which may be why it took 2 weeks to process, instead of what we originally where told.

Playing now, the changes I see are:

Menu's for items, shops, etc properly loops, the music transitions are mostly fixed, monster actions are assigned a new control scheme for Switch users, moves can now be reordered, Permadeath is now an optional toggle so the difficulty modes should have received the changes as well, some overworld door teleports were fixed(one in a cave on postgame island is still bugged but the one at Dark Castle works now, casino games and campfires work and no longer softlock, etc. Everything else like the broken chiefs should be fixed, but haven't played through the story again so haven't experienced it first hand.

The game can still crash, just got my first one in a few days(don't know if it was from a specific sequence of events, just random, or a new issue brought up by the new patch), so that is still something to be aware of, save often.

But yeah, I can definitely start recommendations for the game now.

The stat Algorithm for Isotope Therepy and evolution has been fixed. Monsters now generally increase in most stats instead of 1, especially if they evolve where previously they may have lost stats.

You can now see the estimate of stats offspring will have before choosing to breed.

....honestly, I think I'd give the game a pass. 2 weeks on kickstarters STILL do not have their codes, and the dev has gone radio silent. Thinking those codes may not materialize....at all.

Thanks for the heads-up. I've been keeping an eye on this one. Looks like the physical drops in about a week, so I'll probably grab that.

Hopefully they'll continue to fix stuff, and realistically this game will probably go on the backlog since SRW30 drops this week.

He's been talking about this since it happened. There was a post 2days ago on how he isn't talking about the Roadmap until NA backers get their keys from Nintendo and the update was out
. EU backers started getting thiers a week ago.

SRW30? What is that? And my physical copy should be in. I know some people started receiving thiers already.

Another thing to note, more monsters have been added in. Like Zebracoltyl.

Do you know if these issues exist on the physical version? Are the Updates/Patches included on the Nintendo Switch Game Card or do you still have to download it even after one purchase the physical version?

I like old school games and this would have been a no brained for me to pick up, but if there issues happen on the physical cartridge, I just can’t justify paying money for a broken game.
CAPCOM needs to make Mega Man: Powered Up 2 & Mega Man: Powered Up 3 & SQUARE-ENIX needs to REmake FFV & FFVI for the Nintendo Switch.

Almost all games now require an update or download to fix issues, because companies don't do quality control like they used to or constantly are tweaking the game, or are cheap and don't want to pay for higher storage cards to store games on. Pokemon BDSP is doing the same thing, as you need 3gb for the pre launch patch, and the game still has bugs that need to be patched before the actual release. That's just how it is.

Some games do get cart releases with all the dlc, but that is rare.

I actually was going to close this topic and start a new one with the latest patch notes, because the crashing is no longer an issue, though a few graphical/text glitches have been reported, though rare.

The game's UI, balance in mechanics, features added, has all been changed. The newest update combined 3 major patches that Steam received. This is not the same game we had at launch.

I wonder if he fixed the chief you could fight more then once and get the step up and monster. I fought him 5 times, went up 5 trainer levels and got his monster all 5 times. I'm not super optimistic about everything being fixed. There's a lot that needs to be fixed that the dev isn't aware of. It's still a work in progress. It was released too soon and still isn't release ready. It should still be early access and should have disclaimers to anyone that purchases it. There's nothing wrong with being in early access for a couple years. But there is a problem when you advertise a games as ready when it's not. Nintendo asked for my review, and I gave them a honest response.

Good.

I never said everything was fixed, but alot of the old issues have been, including the Frobec Chief rematch glitch. Unfortunately some new issues have popped up.

There's now an issue with the Box depositing your 8th monster in the PC if you add anything to the breeding box. You have to fiddle around with it outside the barn/Storklift to add the 8th member back in.

PC organization is clunkier. The cursor now lags or displays the wrong monster info when moving a monster, but resets once you move the cursor to another monster and back.

Some people have said the UI menus can freeze, but I haven't encountered this. Seems to be rare, but saving and resetting fixes it.

BIG LIST OF UPDATES AS OF 1.3

https://old.reddit.com/r/crownsgame/comments/qto7u5/official_103_is_live_on_nintendo_switch/hkky925/

Tldr, UI overhaul, crashing issues addressed, moves, damage calcs, game balance during the story totally adjusted, breeding stats changed, options for mounts changed and new bulldoze power added to instantly beat monsters while riding them, new monsters added, Chiefs now have icon on the overworld and some have new teams, etc. There's ALOT.
