[UPDATED] Console and Mobile Port Status Update

Recommended Posts

This'll all be over soon, even if it isn't soon, it'll be eventual. In the meantime I've just been casually playing. I honestly lost hope, but when this post happened, I was more hopeful than I was for the forge! I understand if youre all feeling like this is a lost cause. I'm just trying to stay positive here  :wilson_laugh:

There is a bug on don’t starve Pocket Edition when if you kill glommer and not pick his flower from the grave and save and quit. You cannot go back on. It will show a WARNING! ERROR! Screen telling me to exit the application or to go to the don’t starve forums. I tried everything I restarted my phone, deleted and redownloaded the game using iCloud to not lose any saved. And kept asking around. If anybody in the Klein team sees this is there any chance that you’s can do a update to don’t starve pocket edition for where this bug doesn’t occur, because I don’t want to lose my world. So please try to help and possibly respond.

Hey everybody

For quite a while now we have been working to sync up our update schedules for console and mobile with the live versions on PC/Mac/Linux, including updates and events such as The Forge and holiday events. 
Unfortunately we haven’t been successful in getting things to where we want them to be in a timely fashion. We are making some operational changes to fix this and we wanted to update you all and let you know what we’re doing to fix the situation.

Without getting into the boring details, between launching on Xbox, working on releasing a retail version and localizing the games for 8 languages, we have overloaded our porting partners which resulted in limited resources getting in the way of other projects like DS updates on console and mobile as well as DST event updates. 

We had previously made some attempts to correct this without significant operational changes, however this was not as effective as we had hoped so we are going to bring DST updates back inhouse so that Don’t Starve Together can get its frequent updates more synchronized with what is currently live; it’s just a lot easier and faster for us to do these ourselves. While we would like to have simultaneous launches on console with the Steam version, certification still makes that unlikely - however we anticipate these updates to be about a week or two apart once we catch back up. 

This opens up our porting partner to focus on what they do best and work on new platforms and updates that are less time sensitive from a player perspective.

We have already begun this transition and we believe we should see the results of these changes very soon. By the end of February, we should have the localizations ready for Don’t Starve and Don’t Starve Together which has been holding up Don’t Starve and Shipwrecked bug fixes on console and mobile. Shortly after that we will bring the Forge to Console and that point we should be caught up with the new operating schedule. 

We sincerely apologize about this misstep. All of our fans are important to us and we’re sorry that we let some of you down. Thanks to everybody for your support. If you have questions that I haven’t addressed above just post on this thread and I will answer what I can. 
 

Any update on when we can get this or any update on the console versions?

Will we have availability for some popular/useful/must have mods like some other games (one of them is Skyrim).

I don't really care who messed up.  Just give us real times when you expect to do your updates.  It's bad enough that you are not synced up, but to say, "soon", "someday", is infuriating.  People will just give up waiting.  if you tell us when they will drop, people will be excited for them.

Home Sea Home Update for SW on ps4: WHEN?

STATUS UPDATE - 

We hoped to get DST for PS4 and XboxOne out this week, but ran into some localization issues that need to be addressed. We will be submitting for certification on both platforms next week. So unless some sort of catastrophic event we, should see PS4 and XboxOne updates live either late next week or early the week following. 

That will put PS4 and XboxOne current with the PC build including the Year of the Varg event!

We're looking at how we could do The Forge on console as well, but due to the nature of the event servers and item rewards it's a bit more challenging than just a straight port. But we're working on getting that sorted out as well, we'll let you know when we have more info. 

 

TELL ME WHEN THE SHIPWRECKED UPDATE IS COMING!!!

Well it’s coming but it will probably be released after the forge or something like that.

From my understanding DST and DS has separate teams so I'm not sure this has any relevance to when we'll get the SW update

Well, bravooo :). I will be happy to play when we see the update live.

But this doesn't change the fact that I already have that feeling you will abandon console in the future. I see only troubles :)

So other then the recent updating compatibility for iOS 11 and iPhone X is there any idea or time frame for a actual content update for DS and shipwreck?
