State of Decay Update Woes Cause Dev To Ask For Players' Aid

So what's up with those freezing consoles?

State of Decay, the zombie apocalypse sandbox title that has enjoyed tremendous sales since launch but has also endured update woes, has once again stumbled upon a problem that is proving tricky to solve. The second update seems to have spawned a bug in which the game freezes, or gets stuck on an eternal loading screen. Developer Undead Labs is asking for players affected by this bug to get in touch, as without their input the problem may prove impossible to solve.

"It's happening to so few people that we can't get a solid read on what's going on," Undead Labs Tweets. Undead Labs needs to know the exact model and date of manufacture of the affected players' Xbox console, as well as how much space remains on the hard drive and internal memory. At the moment it would seem the bug is causing random crashes, so Undead Labs is looking for any kind of commonality in the affected games.

"I've been reading this post, pulling my hair out and contacting MS," says Undead Labs. "If this is something we can fix, we would love to."

I like how much these guys are trying to keep in contact with their players.

They seem to care, and that's a rare thing nowadays.

Well here's a good reason to prefer Mods over DLC =/

I thought developing for console and it's uniform hardware and OS was supposed to remove the threat of wild bugs like this.

The solution would be to put it on PC already.

I'll care when it's on PC.

PLEASE PUT THIS ON PC, I REALLLLLLLLY WANT THIS GAME.

I mean, the bugs would still be there, but at least you have CTRL+ALT+DEL!

I suppose everyone can add me to the "wake me up when its on steam" crowd.

They need to rebalance the game again. I haven't any non-essential items in any container since the last patch. The worst part is that I can't not play since it's one of those games that keeps track of time when you're not playing.

Um, no?

OT: I barely even know what this is but I've certainly heard it's been having some trouble. Fair play to them for at least getting down and wading through it though, I guess.

And access to community made fixes that appear weeks before any patch.
