Patch 2 update Live![edit | edit source]

Hey everyone!

The results from the public preview are looking pretty good, so today we're moving the newest version of the game from our Public Preview out to everyone.

Most players will see only good things with this patch. But we have noticed a rare occurance on some systems with integrated graphics - textures may get blurrier. This is the result of being safer about allocating texture memory, and the graphic system not reporting correctly. We’ll continue to investigate this.

Mac Kickstarter Backers on the Mac beta will see some changes - mostly good, some bad. Generally, the Mac performance has improved dramatically. Almost everyone should notice that. The bad news is that you may crash, or only see a black screen at startup. There are two steps to fix this. The first is to upgrade to MacOS Sierra which has fixes that Obduction requires. The second is to remove old shader cache files. Here are the steps to delete the old files:

  • Go to the Finder (usually the first thing in your dock)
  • Hold down shift + command + g
  • Type (or copy and paste) this... ~/Library/Application Support/Epic/Obduction/Saved
  • Click Go or push return
  • Delete two files... ByteCodeCache.ushadercode and DrawCache.ushadercache

(If you don’t see those files then you did something wrong, or you don’t have Obduction installed.) If you require further help with this, please create a support ticket at: http://support.cyan.com/


The list of changes and fixes from the Public Preview have stayed the same, but, if you missed them the first time around, here they are:
