      [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.

  1. Good feature to add, it seems they are copying Overwatch's lootbox system, which, in its current state at least, is a good thing to copy. Overwatch also gives you coins that can go towards just buying what you want - though I have to wonder if Hot Lava having lower prices (just 100 for a box? awesome!) to let you randomize 4 items again, is a better model than straight up buying items for high prices if you really want them. Idk i just kinda like the idea of popping boxes vs buying what i want when i didn't get it in a box.
  2. I finally got to play the game, noticed it in my steam list today (signed up for beta awhile ago.) and man I've been having fun with the game all day! So, here's a small review of it so far. I've really only explored the school a bit and did 3 levels, but in that short time I found myself instantly hooked on the game play and enjoying myself. I also like the fact there's secrets and collectibles to be unlocked. Gameplay is nice, controls are a bit odd at times but nothing that ruins the game. Pacing is also good and once you practice a bit you can sweep though courses no problem.... My only complain is that the difficulty spikes unreasonably, and sometimes it's unknown which way you should go. For the difficulty I notice like midway through a run some places require me to stop and retry the motions a few times before I can make some jumps. It's really hard in some areas to get the momentum you need to make a jump, etc. These are the times the game gets a bit ruined for me, because it's not just a user error, it kinda feels like a luck chance. One area that comes to mind is the 3 balloon pillars in the cafeteria of the school... the first two took me awhile to master, but I could get the hang of them, sometimes I'll miss and sometimes I need to bounce a few times on them to ready myself before making a leap, but they were able to be learned, the 3rd balloon stack however is always hit or miss because you can't just jump to it, you need to jump onto the tables and then onto it loosing all your momentum. I couldn't find any other way to jump, and the rope hanging down is completely misleading, as the only fisable way to get across is to jump from the 3rd pillar down to the trash can and keep going from there. That's just one example of a difficulty spike that feels like it can be improved, like I spent hours trying to figure out how to do this and I still can't do a perfect run yet because the minute I hit this section the difficulty spikes and I need to slow down and pray and hope I'm jumping at just the right speed and angel... fix issues like this and then this game would be 100% great! I mean, the base game isn't easy either, and I understand difficulty for more experienced players,. but these small sections feel like you need pixel perfect jumps, which just seems too difficult for any player skill level and is more annoying. The pogostick is also really hard to control, which I guess is the point but it would be nice if we could hold our walk button and slow down the jumping, or hold crouch and get off it for a brief moment so we stop bouncing, I'm having a lot of trouble with the 3rd pogo trial. The bad aside, the good is that I like the characters, themes, and lore! Keep all of this! I also like the cosmetic system, reminds me of Overwatch, lootboxes but you can earn them or get them for free, that's always a good thing as most users hate micro transactions, though I expect you guys will have a shop for buying boxes or cosmetics at some point, as I do understand that's a reasonable way to make money, it just having the option to earn or buy that makes or breaks a game. Earning it for players who don't want to pay, and the option to buy for players who can afford it. It keeps the game from becoming fully pay to win when there's alternate ways to get the cosmetics... I do wish some of the cosmetics were more colorful though. I get the theme is that our characters are actually toys of the G.A.T. agents, so the acessories are just solid plastic much like you'd find in actual children's toys, but I feel like some more level of detail can be added to them, as most ones I have just have the shape of what they are supposed to be and then are just fully black plastic... that's a little boring and I'd like to stand out just a bit more. High quality toys had more detail to their plastic accessories, so unless G.A.T. agents are a cheap toy brand, coloring some of the cosmetics can only improve it! Overall I love the game and if I didn't have it for free thanks to the beta I would totally pay money for this and be content and have my money's worth out of it... can't wait for it to go public and my friends to get it too! Multiplayer is also a very fun added feature. Keep up the good work on this game, I look foward to following the development through completion! P.S. Please make more of the G.A.T cartoon shorts! I love watching those!!
  3. So I'm not really sure if this is the right form to ask this in so sorry about that, but anyway- I've been wanting to make a character mod for awhile, it'd be in my best interests to make it for Don't Starve Together. I tried making a mod for the base DS a few years ago and I gave up because coding and such broke even though I had everything done right, it just crashed for no reason and I couldn't figure out why. I'm not like, great at coding so I was kinda hoping I could find a template that I can just merely go in and edit the code for. I wanted to make a character with new art, which I can do, and then just take a template for programming, and edit the stuff. IE, customize the comments on items, maybe edit the character's health and sanity, etc. I wasn't planning on adding any NEW items or accessories with this mod... So my question is, can someone direct me to an UP TO DATE guide on how to mod in a character? Everything I'm finding seems to be from 2015 at the latest, and its 2018 now... I have no idea if the framework for Don't Starve has changed, if these old method's don't work anymore, etc... So If someone can like, confirm that information for me and toss a link to a guide it would be greatly appreciated! I'm sorry if this post is kinda spam like, or junk mail, but I just couldn't find a link to anything on my own and I really would like some up to date information. Thanks in advance!

    Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so how a about that new Gorge event?
  5. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    That's great! I love when a community is friendly and nice to each other over stuff like this, very rare you find fanbases without drama being stirred cause of preferred ships and stuff ahaha. Also yes! They are very similar in certain aspects, it was a good guess regardless though! Though with that said given how similar they look clothes wise and their "themes" part of me likes to think Wes and Wolfgang are like both from the same circus team or something like that...
  6. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    Okay so i dont have time to ink this comic and stuff so here's just the sketches. (its like almost 6 am dgahjska) Me and a friend were talking about DS again and shipping and like we have a friendly debate on the go about pairing Wes with Wilson vs Wes with Woodie, so obviously I had to show the superior ship with some cute artwork. (plus the only other art i drew of them is like super old and icky so) Sorry for being shipping trash ahaha.
  7. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    Wilson is mildly concerned. (part of a bigger image im inking and full coloring but just a quick sketch update I RIDE AGAIN. (Also art style shifted... AGAIN.))
  8. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    Oh no Wilson has an idea, what could possibly go wrong... Aaaaaaaand My art style changed... AGAIN. I just can't keep that consistent lol. I like this one though so maybe it'd stick. I just keep geting more and more cartoony with my styles...
  9. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    I really should make myself a signature... no ideas what to put on it though lol Just doing some warm up art and stuff to get back into the swing of the characters and world. Almost done with my newest doodle.
  10. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    Gosh it's been forever since I posted here... I am drawing as we speak though will post it here when done. News of The Forge revived me lol
  11. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    Hey, I'm back again for a bit. It's been awhile. Looks like I missed some small excitement while I was gone, haha. Anyway, I recently played DST again, it's been a long time since I last played, and drew some artwork of Shadow Wes, since I bought his outfit off the steam market when I played again with my friend yesterday. And here's the picture without the glasses cause I always draw eyes and face on one layer and then put the glasses on another layer over it to add opacity and make them look like more realistic glasses. And finally here's a small doodle (sorta canon art style) from trying to get the flow for the outfit and the hair and stuff. Cheers!
  12. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    The deed is done. (quote given to me by a friend) Blank for personalized meme use as well:
  13. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    Thanks lol, I'm tempted to make other reaction memes with Wilson, such as the recent Roll Safe meme.
  14. Maxwell Memes: The Sequel

    Already posted this to my art thread, but felt this meme would be more of use to people here. Anyone familiar with the "guess I'll die" meme? You're welcome.
  15. Don't Art (Magicphobic)

    While quoting the "Guess I'll Die" meme a lot today the topic came up about me being too lazy to cook a meal, so I ended up saying "Guess I'll starve." and then this hit me. Here's a blank one for free use if anyone wants to meme with it. (As long as you don't state claim to the artwork of course)
