Beyond Divinity v1.42 Patch Released

Larian Studios has released another patch for the English version of Beyond Divinity, bringing the game to v1.42. Here is a list of all changes to the game to date:

The following comment only applies if you’ll use savegames made with patch 1.4:

There was a problem in patch 1.4 with the regeneration of the inventories of traders. Because of this problem after some time the game crashes. Patch 1.42 fixes this but because of a technical issue it’s impossible to totally upgrade savegames made with version 1.4. As a result, some magical items which are lying on the ground might lose their properties when applying patch 1.42.

This does not apply for items which are in the inventory of your party.

Savegames made with patch 1.41 and which were upgrades from savegames made with patch 1.4 have been corrupted by patch 1.41 due to a problem with the upgrade system. You should not use these savegames anymore as more than likely you will run into big problems later on in the game.

However, if you started afresh with a game made in 1.41, you will not observe any problems. The problems only appear for savegames made in version 1.4 that were upgraded to savegames made in version 1.41.

NEW INVENTORY SYSTEM as of Version 1.40
As of version 1.40, the inventory interface has changed. The buttons on the left side of the inventory no longer act as filtering buttons you can switch on and off. The buttons will now act as tabs. By clicking one of the tabs, the inventory field will only show one particular type of items.

– By clicking the first tab, you will only see your armour.
– Clicking the second tab will only show weapons.
– The third tab contains your magical items (e.g. summoning dolls, charms, crystals…).
– The fourth tab is where you can find your potions.
– The fifth tab will only contain your book collection.
– The last tab uncovers miscellaneous items (e.g. gold, food, drink, quest items…).
