Downgrade to 1.6

brightrockgames 3 months ago in Community Forum • updated by Lee "Noontide" Moon (Community Manager) 3 months ago 5

Can anyone tell me how to get back to 1.6? I installed GOG Galaxy and it upgraded my game without asking - this is why i hate Gog and steam, but now its almost unplayable and lags like a bitch all the time. I just want to get back to a working version.

Hi Richard,


I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with the game in the latest version and we'd be more than happy to try and resolve these issuses separately if you would like to raise a bug ticket (How to: Submit a Bug Ticket) we'll investigate and hopefully have issues fixed for the 2.0.1 release in the coming weeks.


As far as I understand you're using GOG Galaxy which by default automatically updates to the latest version released. You can override the auto-update functionality in the GOG Galaxy client on a per-game basis or across all Galaxy games.


To disable this universally simply click the GOG logo in the top left of the Galaxy client, open settings and disable "Auto-update games" in the features list. 


For disabling auto-updates / rolling back updates on a particular game: 

  1. Select the game in your list 
  2. Click the "More" drop down
  3. Click settings
  4. In "Override features" uncheck Auuto-Updates
  5. You can then also select an older version of the game to load instead.

If you require further help with these features of GOG Galaxy may I suggest you contact GOG support as we're not the authority on the Galaxy client and they may be able to help you better than we can.


Cheers,


Lee

Hey Richard,


You can revert on Steam by right clicking the game in your library and going to Properties -> Betas and selecting "Previous Build". You should also be able to download an older version of the DRM game in GOG.

I don't have STEAM. I purchased the game DRM Free from Kickstarter, then humble, then transferred to GOG. Regardless, I don't want GOG to have anything to do with it because that's what upgraded it anyway without asking. 


So, for clarity, I want to downgrade to the version before the one that GOG downloaded and upgraded which from memory was 1.6. The new version is virtually unplayable, lags badly and creates instead of moving seem to appear and disappear and imps keep appearing in lava and dying. Hopeless to play.

Thanks Lee, that worked great although my saves have gone but at least its playable. As for a bug ticket I don't honestly think this is something a bug ticket can fix and I'm not the only one with serious lag issues. I know the first release was 'early' but we knew that and took it on board but since then the QA seems to be notably absent from releases which is a real shame.

Glad to hear. In any case we're working on improvements for the upcoming 2.0.1 so I hope that it will be in a well enough state for you to enjoy. It's difficult to understand why performance has degraded for some users as internally we measured improvements prior to 2.0's release. Hopefully our targeted improvements should return stability for those affected.


We've actually significantly increased the amount of QA dedicated to our releases but it remains one of the hardest parts of game development and we're only a very small team with what is honestly a gargantuan project. But we're always learning and will continue to improve in this regard.


I'm sorry that we've not been up to snuff thus far.
