Dark and Darker August 8 Patch Notes

We are really sorry. Due to a miscommunication about patch application, the server went down without giving you enough time to prepare.
We were preparing to apply an urgent patch to the server to fix the discovered critical issue.

Restarting server is expected to take about 10 minutes.

And we’ve received the reports that some of you were encountering issues when uninstalling the Blacksmith Launcher.

To fix this, we’ve deployed an update for the launcher and hotfixed the issue.

Blacksmith Launcher:

  • Fixed an issue where you could not install with a “Blacksmith is already installed” error.
  • Fixed an issue where some user data on the installed path could be deleted if the launcher was installed in the non-empty folder (e.g., specified itself as “Desktop” or “My Documents” without Blacksmith).
  • Fixed compatibility issues with running some virtual machines.

We will do our best to quickly correct the various problems that are currently being reported.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
