Invisible, Inc. - small bug patch - April 6, 2016

Recommended Posts

There was a bug in windows 10 where the game would sometimes not shut down properly. We made a fix for that and while we were in there I fixed another bug that had come up on the steam forums about Penetration Scanner working from the inventory even when not installed.

This patch will also put out a change to the way mods are refreshed. Previously, mods would not refresh properly if they needed to change data that was already loaded. Now, refreshing  requires a game reload, but the mods will be able to refresh all of their content.

Patch - Build 172700
* fixes a shutdown bug with Win 10
* Penetration Scanner won't grant armor penetration unless installed now.
* The refresh mods button requires a game restart to refresh the mods, but the mods can now properly refresh.

Great! Thanks for continuing to put out fixes. I recently had a game with a potted plant blocking a doorway, should I submit a bug report or do you not take those anymore?

I think bug reports are always welcome, eh?

The more polished the game can be, the better! Thus why they still release these patches from time to time :)

It was a legitimate concern because they disabled posting in the bug report forum sometime in January, which implied: "Don't bother".

It doesn't seem like they're looking to fully "polish" the game. There's a few bugs that they know exist but they must consider some of them to be not impactful enough and the others would take too long to fix. The bugs fixed today affects a large % of players, windows 10 and mod users, and the gameplay bug was only fixed because it was convenient.

Hey toto768, GOG updates take a bit more time to go up, but it will get updated as well.

Hey @Jason, I discovered a pretty large bug that emerged from who knows when, and it's pretty game breaking. Yes, this is a bug post, but from what I can see, the bug tracker topic is inactive and I can't post there, so forgive me if I am in the wrong, but I will put it here.

So. I am using Windows 10 and the most recent version of Invisible, Inc. on steam. I found out through combining certain programs that Charge does not behave properly with Wisp or Lightning. I was fiddling around in the code ever so slightly and from what I saw I think I understand Wisp's issue.

Whenever a guard is in line of sight, wisp becomes active. Once all visible guards are tagged, Wisp completely deactivates itself, similar to Oracle without any more cameras. In this instance, Charge cannot add 1 cooldown to Wisp, because it is completely inactive. So, during the same turn, if an agent discovers another guard, Wisp is reactivated and free to use again, meaning Wisp effectively costs 2 less PWR but can still be used as many times as you want per turn.

Lightning is in the same boat, but I'm not sure why. It can also be used infinitely during any turn but costs 2 PWR less.

I'm not currently aware of any other programs that behave this way, but I just wanted to bring this to your attention, as this really is game breaking, considering how powerful the Wisp and Lightning combo is when used effectively.

Regards,

Nickster206

Thanks for releasing this fix for Windows 10. I had noticed that when I quit, the game would close, but the music would keep playing for a long time. Good to see y'all are still working on this!

Another small update while the code was still fresh in my head. Fixed those program bugs from Nickster and set up the rescue potraits to use a build. Shrish's agent mods deserve it ;)

Patch - BUILD 173254
* Programs Lightning and Wisp work properly with Charge now.
* Rescued agents portrait can now refer to a build as well as an anim.

Hi @Jason,

I was wondering if you guys had any time-window (approximately) for the PS4 patch that'll fix the main game-breaking bug at the moment.

I really like your game ; thus, I would really like being able to play it sooner than later.

Thanks!

It's being worked on right now BilderbergSlayer. There are a few things that are being dealt with, and there will be some testing, so I don't have an exact time window for you. But I expect it will be fixed early next week.

That sounds pretty good. Thank you! 

Do you expect that the patch will fix the corrupted games, or that on the contrary it will be necessary to retire the agencies concerned and start anew? I was almost at the end of the campaign that initiated the first occurence, that's why I'm asking :)

Since it's no longer possible to submit bug reports the proper way, I'll do it here.

Derek plants an EMP within hearing range of the guard, the guard hears it and enters the room, looks towards a different tile than where the sound came from, and doesn't see Derek. Derek is not in cover, and is standing on the tile the sound came from, so the guard should have seen him and gone onto overwatch.
