  • Enabled multiselection in the Trade UI for keyboard and mouse. Also fixed ‘Buy Back’ prices.
  • Fixed a bug causing party gold to initially be set to 0 when trading or bartering, giving you an ‘Insufficient Gold’ warning, no matter how much you actually had.
  • Fixed ‘Send To’ not showing camp characters in the context menu when selecting multiple items.
  • Selling a container to a trader and then swapping to a different character in the Trade/Barter UI no longer allows you to use ‘Take All’ to transfer the trader’s stock to your inventory.
  • Restored the ability to send items to camp companions while outside of the camp. Many of you felt this was a nice quality-of-life feature, so it’s back!
  • Fixed a bug letting you place equipment into incompatible equipment slots. Please take those gloves off your feet.

UI Continued
  • Restored the ‘Send To’ and ‘Pick Up’ options in the context menu for items in the Traveller’s Chest.
  • Fixed a bug where rebinding the left mouse button would remove its functionality, preventing you from clicking.
  • Fixed the ‘Sort By’ function not working properly for containers and inventories when sorting by the same filter twice in a row.
  • Fixed the ‘Sort By’ function not working for corpse inventories.
  • Fixed an exploit that could give you free items from a trader by quickly escaping the Trade UI while dragging an item to the Barter UI inventory.
  • Fixed the Upcast view on the hotbar closing prematurely when you change your Upcast selection, forcing you to choose the maximum number of targets. Also fixed the hotbar incorrectly reflecting the current spell state after you change your Metamagic selection.
  • Fixed a dialogue not triggering after destroying the Steel Watch Foundry if all the Gondians, including Zanner, died.
  • Fixed a bug causing Minthara to keep repeating a greeting that also happened to be a nice little Act III spoiler.
  • Fixed a bug causing the owlbear cub to disappear from camp. Little buddy just got lost.
  • Fixed the crime dialogue for trespassing getting spammed beside the Steel Watch Foundry if you triggered the alarmed door and then saved the game within the forbidden area outside the Foundry.
  • Fixed an edgecase where having Minthara around could teleport the party back to the Emerald Grove instead of the Lower City.
  • Fixed Wyll’s quest not starting when you recruit him by replacing another companion with him.
  • Fixed the ‘Enemy of Justice’ condition applying to your player character upon reaching Créche Y’llek or the Shadow-Cursed Lands if you knocked out Minthara in a previous region, or upon reaching the Lower City if you killed a guard at Moonrise Towers and Araj Oblodra witnessed it.
  • Fixed a bug where the game would not realise knocked-out Minthara had been defeated in Act I if you took a Long Rest between knocking her out and defeating the other goblin leaders.
  • You can no longer save your game while the credits are rolling. This is to prevent issues with the game not knowing which state to load.
