Hey Survivalist,

We’ve just released Alpha 17 Experimental B197 and could really use your help finding the last remaining big issues. As always TFP is interested in all constructive criticism and feedback, but what we're really looking for in this thread are the following:

  • Show stopping game play bugs (Hopefully with reproduction steps)
  • Crashes (Try and get reproduction steps and post your output_log.txt files - usually found here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\7 Days To Die\7DaysToDie_Data\output_log.txt - directly in your forum post. Note: You will find all output_logs time stamped there, even from old games. You can also attach your zipped up crash dump file too.)
  • Chunk Generation Bugs. People please give us the coordinates of where they were in the world when they run into a chunk generation error plus the game seed. Copy and pasting the error alone and the output log is not sufficient to help with a fix.

Additionally, you can post balance and feedback in the current Dev diary.

We don’t want incompatibility bugs with previous builds so please remember to start a new game with each experimental update.

 

Here's how to opt in and play the latest experimental branch.

 

Open your steam client.

1. Click on Games/View Games Library

2. Right click ‘7 Days to Die’ and select properties

3. From the new popup dialogue box select the ‘BETAS’ Tab

4. Under ‘Select the beta you would like to opt into’ latest_experimental

 

The game will then update and download the latest experimental build Alpha 17 Experimental

 

Switching back to the latest main stable build is as easy as repeating steps 1-4 and on step 4 choose the option ‘None – Opt out of all Beta Programs’ and you’ll revert to the latest stable build.

 

Official Alpha 17 Release notes!

 

Cheers Richard

 

Release notes link no worky! D:

 

Edit: Here's the link! It's the same page as the older A17 release notes, but has been updated!

Can we have a way to cancel out of connecting to a server that hangs? I seem to only be able to get back to the lobby by alt+tabbing and closing the game and restarting. I think the "esc to cancel" comes up for a short time, but if it gets too far into connecting, you have no option to cancel, and I've had 3 hang pretty long for me now. Could be that they are updating since when I go back to the lobby, the server is no longer there, but being able to cancel out would still be helpful. Thanks!

So A17Exp is giving me the most lousy grass models. Same with the one-punch twiggy things that give some wood.

 

Anybody else? Any suggestions?

 

Nevermind. Found I needed to do a full exit back to Steam and then restart, not just exit to the games main menu.

@ TFP I know it sucks for the rest of us with a head on our shoulders' date=' but I kinda want you guys to be tight lipped from now on and just release stuff when it's ready with no warning. Cut yourself off from the community. I DON'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN. but atleast it would show all these self-entitled people what a gaming company is ussually like..... Honestly.... talk about biting the hand that feeds you. I have NEVER seen this kind of contact with the community like you guys do. I hope all these negative word-warriors don't ruin it for the rest of us.[/quote']

 

You guys are so impatient. LOL. I just skipped the last 50 pages of whatever insanity was getting posted.

 

People will act dumb. Nothing we can do about that but laugh, do our jobs and release cool stuff.

(edit added comment by QA Tester-unholyjoe)

 

go to video options in game and first tab set gamma down... mine is at 25% not all monitors and video cards show the same brightness.

 

hope that helps
