      [UPDATED] Physical Megapack Disc Issues   04/16/2018

      Update 5/11/2018 We do not have any more information at this time. The last we spoke to 505 indicated that the discs should be ready very soon. We will likely have more information next week; hopefully with full explanation of when and how to get new discs.    Updated: 4/27/2018

      On April 17th, the Don't Starve Megapack was released. Almost immediately, it was discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). The disc contained Don't Starve Together, but was without Don't Starve, Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked. As soon as we confirmed the problem we contacted our retail publisher to find out how this happened and what could be done. It's taken some time to get this far, but this is all the information we have at this time. The current status of the issue is as follows: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks.  When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc previous to 4/26/2018 can now contact Klei support HERE for a Playstation Store voucher code that includes Don't Starve Together, Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC that you can play now. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  New purchasers of the Megapack in store as of 4/26/2018 should be given a voucher at the time of purchase on your receipt. If you do not get a code, contact us ALL purchasers will have a path to get a new disc when they are ready. We do not have details at this time, but we are comitted to ensuring that all players get what they purchased.  We are hearing from some players that some retailers are telling players that they will not be exchanging discs. We believe this to be incorrect and that particular person or location is just misinformed. 505 has ensured us that they are doing their best to make sure these discs are being replaced for all players. We will not allow anybody to fall through the cracks here. We will buy and ship the discs ourselves if we have too.   This was our first major retail release and we're extremely disappointed that our players have been let down with their purchase of the Don't Starve Megapack. We're doing our best to make sure this issue gets resolved as quickly as possible. Thanks everybody for your support and patience. We'll keep you updated.    UPDATE: (4/26/2018) We are now ready to send out vouchers to players who purchased the physical version of the Don't Starve Megapack - These codes will allow players to download and play Don't Starve and DLC as well as Don't Starve Together To get a voucher players can contact as at our support site: http://support.kleientertainment.com/customer/portal/emails/new  For the subject, choose "PS4 Megapack" and fill in the form and we'll get you fixed up as soon as possible.  We will require a picture of your receipt, your Klei account ID and the region you are located in (so we can give you the proper voucher).  UPDATE: (4/24/2018) Earlier this week, we discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). It’s a really unfortunate situation and we’ve been working hard with 505 to resolve this as soon as possible. Below is the latest information: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks. When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc will also be able to contact Klei support for a voucher code that includes Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC until the new disc is ready. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  We will have more details when they become available including details on contacting us and what information we might need.  Once again, thanks to everybody for their patience while we work this out.

About This File

111mglk_jpg.png

“Hero in the Dark” – Is a traditional fantasy mod This mod will incorporate traditional fantasy elements and lore while retaining the artistic style and the survive or die elements of Don’t Starve. A large focus of the lore and design of the mod will be from D&D and other games/books within the genre. Barbarians, shadow knights, druids, Necromancers etc etc

The goals of this mod are to make an alternate form of Don’t Starve, not to add on to its current game. We have added in creatures, events, more lvs, boss mobs, items, dungeons, unique leveling system, 12 playable character(not all characters are in yet)s, 100's of new recipes etc.

Here is the first version of Beta. We are still looking for more artists coders and people to help with character scripts to join our team. We need things from Characters, items, monsters, terrain etc We are currently looking for 2 to 3 artists/animators and 1 to 2 people to help with character scripting. If you are interested please send me a pm.

(Note: this is still in Beta, we are still missing some artwork and character scripts, I am not posting this to steam as of yet)

(Note: if you are using a controller, you must disable spell books. To do this, hit the configure button on the mod page inside the game and turn off spell books)

Please give feedback within this thread and bug reports here or in a PM to me. Don't forget to follow our mod and rate it!

We now have our own sub forum here

Crashed at startup? T.T

Which game version? RoG active or not? Any other mods? Any particular crash log?

 

Note: HeroInTheDark should be in your /mods folder, not dsmods-alpha1, check directory structure. This was packed from github directly so has extra directory depth.

 

Note no.2: if running on old version that does not support api_version 5 (e.g. not updated since idk, february? for some reason) you can change to api_version = 4 in modinfo.lua file to get it to run. It does not require neither this year's updates nor DLC to run.

 Thanks for the reply first of all. Seriously appreciate it as I've been look all over to do this.

 

Basically when I first open the game, I go to the mod section, and it notifies me that the mod crashed on start up. (Mind you I never even played the mod, this was the first time ever being opened since moving file)

 

I did make that it wasn't the alpha file input to the file.

 

Changing the api version... What program do I open it with? Notepad?

it's not the mod that isn't up to date with standalone, it's standalone's api version that is not up to date to steam api version. Klei refuses to update API version on standalone apparently until ROG is ready or so, which is putting us in a very frustrating situation, it's either standalone clients won't run it out of the box or steam clients complaining the api is outdated...

 

But like I said above, you can just extract it etc and open modinfo.lua in notepad or something, and change

api_version = 5

to

api_version = 4

 

and it will work fine.

 

I know it's a hassle, but It's honestly an issue out of our control, however we set it one part of the user base will have an issue until standalone is patched properly.

it's rar archive split in 2 due to klei download size limitations. Make sure you have downloaded both parts before extracting.

 

If it still fails, it might be your unarchiver does not support split archives (is that even possible?), in which case you might want to download something that does, most obvious choices being

 

http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

http://www.win-rar.com/download.html?&L=0

 

depending on your OS, former should work with windows/linux, if you're on mac might want to get unarchiver tho winrar works too

Yes, I downloaded them 2.

No need to manually merge anything or even touch the 2nd file, just dump all files into same dir and start extract on the first, software itself will go through all archive parts and make HITD dir.

Bird Tokens:, when you kill a bird its drops a coin,, when  you get it says Bird Token. There are pigs in game that ask for items like Worm Token, Spider King Token, when you give the item to the pig its dissapear and give you  strange meat, i think is a quest.

I have to say so far the mod is going in the right direction mainly

the new content. Goblins are a very nice addition.
