Updates and hotfixes release notes

Postby Chogon » Tue Aug 30, 2016 8:38 am

This thread will be for current version released and the hotfix/update release notes. I will sticky this and lock it to keep it clean and easy to find.
The Obduction Team is working hard to fix problems and issues (and more platform releases!) as quickly as they can.

On Steam. There are two versions available to the public. One is the default and the other is accessible as a BETA. In the Steam properties window for Obduction (right-click on Obduction in your Library and select Properties from the menu), select LOCAL FILES tab, you will see “Current content BuildID” followed by a number. This is the Steam version.
Using the BETA is at your own risk and can be retrieved by going to the BETAS tab in the Properties window for Obduction. Enter “publicpreview” (without the quotes, no spaces) in the beta access code text box and hit CHECK CODE button.
Currently on Steam:
default = Steam BuildID 1310800 = Internal 21182 - P1 (Aug 31, 2016)
publicpreview = Steam BuildID 1350934 = Internal 21615 - P2 (Sept 22, 2016)

On GoG.com. You can check the download version on GoG.com by going to your LIBRARY, select VIEW DOWNLOADS and the GOG version will be listed under the OS type.
Currently on GoG.com:
GOG-4 = Internal 21065 (Aug 29, 2016)
(update to P1 in process)

[Updated Sept 22, 2016: updated Steam publicpreview branch]
