    ANY UPDATES ???

    It's in Microsoft Cert, it'll hopefully pass soon, then they have to in house test it and if all goes well they'll release it!

    Hi are you one of the devs ?(if not then this is for the devs)

    Can you keep us updated even if it fails the cert , obvs I'm not alone in saying this but this is killing me just waiting and not knowing

    I went off subnautica for ages and started again couple of months back and the addiction returned , so I'm mortified I can't feed my habit , PLEASE WE'RE DYING OUT HERE !!!!!!

    The reason devs don't make any updates on this is because they have their work to do, which we all know what that work is.

    Hey everyone. We're having to take some more time to figure this out, as we ran into more save/load problems after putting in a potential 'fix'. We're working hard to resolve it and get the patch through cert ASAP. Thanks for your continued patience.

    Ok some good news for a change , I managed to save a second time after spending many hours the first time , the only thing I did different was to leave it paused for about 10 mins before saving whilst I went on my iPad for a bit , hopefully I can do it again

    OMG I DID IT AGAIN !!!

    I've managed to save three times now just by pausing it for about ten minutes before saving , the pic changed when I went to reload it e.g. Save the game facing the radio and the save game file shows you facing the chair instead also when you reload you may be facing a different way

    You can tell it's worked coz the "saving" notification at the top stays a bit longer , its wise to try saving a second time just to see the difference

    Obraxis I quoted you as this may be of some help to you guys

    I hope this works for other players

    GOOD LUCK GUYS

    Ok now it seems to be saving fine as long as you leave it a little while between saves

    E.g. Saving twice in a row the second one's notification goes off far quicker

    So you're saying if you pause it and let the system "settle" for a bit, you get pretty reliable saving?

    That worked fine for me , yeah I left it paused for roughly 5-10 mins and it saved fine , I'm gonna go and test it again and I'll post my findings

    NEW THEORY THATS WORKING SO FAR
    Press save where you are and it will do the usual quick save and nothing , then move to a different biome and it saves leaving the save notification on screen for about 5+ seconds , I then went back to another biome and it worked again ,

    So save once in the biome that you are in that has your base then move to another biome and save then return to the biome with your base and save

    Neither of the above methods work for me. I've spent 6 hours trying different variations, including new save games as a control.

    I've tried moving literally from one biome adjacent, to the extreme of one end of the map to maximise distance. Save. Return to base and save again. Didnt work.

    Moving, saving. Coming back, pausing 10 minutes and then saving. Nope.

    Moving, pausing 10 minutes and saving. Coming back and pausing and saving. Still not updating the save.

    I tried pausing up to half an hour at a time and it had no effect for me.

    We appreciate that. Because of the extra delay, we were able to slip in some more performance improvements in the build we're currently testing. Once it's out, we'd appreciate your feedback. :smile:

    Performance improvements are always worth the wait, excited to try it out, will definitely let you know how well it's running once its released B)

    Excellent! For me the performance was already improved (save issues aside) so that's even better!

    Any updates on the progress
  • obsidian_eclipseobsidian_eclipse uk Join Date: 2017-05-04 Member: 230239Members Posts: 86 Advanced user
    It takes about 1-2 weeks for the MS cert process, so I imagine that sort of time frame plus however long it takes for Unknown Worlds to run their next test. So my guess would be mid October earliest?

    Not only does my game not save. I reinstalled it and now it's in a different language. I looked for a way to change it and followed everyone's screen shots but when I go into options the language change option is not there. How the hell am I supposed to change language and when will it save correctly?

    They added some code to try and find the bug, so play anyways, hopefully you'll help them find the issue.

    How long does it usually take for Microsoft to test games ?, surely all the need to do is make sure it saves since they passed the last update as it was .
