Patch 1.1 is out!

News

Hello stalkers!
The 1.1 patch is here!

Before reading the changes made, I want to let you know that you can support me and those projects on uTip (watch ads without creating an account or send small donations) or Patreon. It's optional but really appreciated. Ideally it would give me more time to work on games because IRL job takes too much time & energy. Thanks. ;)

Image from the benchmark. Path.


So, how to install this?

Be sure to have Forbidden Trip - Early Access (base package 1.0) already installed on your system. Then, download the 1.1 patch; you just need to merge the Forbidden_Trip folder in the patch zip archive with the one already on your computer and it's done! Replace all files when asked.

It should be compatible with your saves.

1.1 patch: optimization patch.

This patch is important! It makes the current Early Access a "healthy" base so that I can finish and add the next maps (the objective of next patches). :)

The main point of this is to address the performance issues: if you could not play on 1.0, you should try again with this patch, you may be surprised! Here is why:

  1. all Forbidden Trip textures are now optimized (pow2 size & correct dimension) = no more runtime crashes between levels, faster loadings...
  2. the benchmark is here: use the hatch on the ground when you begin a new story to launch it. It lasts 60 seconds and will help you determine if you should use the...
  3. performance mode; it's back! Select this mode when starting a new story and you will be able to play the larger maps easily! No more low FPS, if you have an older computer this is for you! Personally I nickname it the Silent Hill mode. Even if you have a strong machine you might want to try it for fun... ;)
  4. updated Windows launchers; the x64 launcher is back as well.
  5. various updates, corrections, edits... for more details, read the complete changelog:

1.1 changelog

// General:

  • TEXTURES OPTIMISATION: all textures I created for this project are now fully optimized to pow2 size (651 files were manually edited).
    Additionally, the size of some textures was too big so that was reduced.
    Some decals (18) needed to be fixed as well.
    The result is faster loadings and no C++ runtime errors/crashes! I was able to play it on a toaster laptop!
    Note: there may be a few pow2 errors left because of content made by others that are used (only a few textures & models). I will fix them later if it causes problems but you should be fine for now.
    As a reminder, the game often do autosaves so you can resume quickly from where you were!
  • PERFORMANCE MODE: it's back, for those of you who struggle at 2 fps in the biggest maps. Select this option when you start a new game and you will be able to play those maps in better condition. I call this the Silent Hill mode! Try it even if you have a strong PC... ;P
  • BENCHMARK: launch this one minute benchmark to see if you should play using performance mode or not.
  • Missing chapter messages added.
  • Minor text edits on two loading screens.
  • Wrong (older) music (not) playing during credits (no music would play).
  • Updated Windows launchers; x64 exe is back too.
  • Added missing mat file.

Sir, I was anticipating this mods release since like 2013, I even played your demo few years ago. Recently I found out you made an early access.
Seriously, I already abandoned Amnesia but when this is the case I will download this and try it, maybe even enjoy it, if my PC will not burn in the process because the demo gave me lags.

Hello!
If you play it maybe select the performance mod, you should be fine. :)
I'm working on the remaining maps, it's mostly scripting plus adding the last brush strokes; progress is very good.
See you!

All in all, even if it is in early access, this is still a solid and incredible experience :) 9/10. Full review is visible in the review section. Here is my walkthrough:

I really wish I could play this, However the game crashes every time in the loading screen when I go to the car. The game crashed like 1 minute in the loading screen. I tried to solve it with the tips in the notepad, however the force thingy was already on true, I also tried it with false as well and it still did not work, so both on false and true it crashes there. I tried it as well with the left high performance door (my FPS were fine during the testing), it still crashes. My resolution is 1280 X 720 I believe. I tried it with the three different .exe files, the normal one, the one with safe and the one with safe-nodrm, this also did not work unfortunately. Help.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that... do you play on Steam, retail... ?
Did you play from the beginning using 1.1 Patch?
When you crash, have you tried resuming your game with the last save/autosave? Same problem?
I suppose you don't click/use keyboard either during loadings (Amnesia doesn't really like it).
What is your hardware?
Any particular error message?
When you got a crash, upload/send me the log (Documents\Amnesia\Forbidden_Trip\hpl.log), maybe I'll find something helpful. Thanks!

I do it via steam, I have the patch 1.1 and yes I try it via the last save. Nope I do not click or touch the keyboard. Hardware should be ok, I still did it on performance and it crashed as well. i5-3470 quad core at 3.20 GHz with 8GB ram and geforce GT1030. I will send you the log once I try it again.

I did the benchmark and every cutscene went smoothly. First I tried the high detail door and everything went smoothly up until the crash when the protagonist goes in the car. But it happens even in the best performance one.

Ok; no error message at all?
Does it just close?

Let's try this:

Go to Documents\Amnesia\Forbidden_Trip\Your_Name\

Remove all .sav files (or put them somewhere else).

Download this save I just made and tested:
Yanka.is.free.fr

Unzip the .sav file in Documents\Amnesia\Forbidden_Trip\Your_Name\

Launch the game, select Load (not Continue) and select this save.

If you get a crash again, please send me the .log, thank you!

It worked, thank you so much :D I heard the car door closing so I guess that is the end of the car trip. btw, did I miss anything like a cutscene or was that save file literally the other end of the loading screen?

Ah, I'm happy for you! Still, I don't understand what happened...

You did not miss anything, as you said this save is just after the loading screen! Have fun, I hope you won't have problems anymore!

I need your help once more, now I have a complete different problem where I cannot open my inventory nor the journal in your save file. I might need your save file + the user_settings and user_keys files with your save file as well :/ I of course need to have my inventory or else I cannot use keys etc XD
