Dark and Darker Early Access Hotfix #43 Rolls Out Following Database Recovery

Ironmace has released Hotfix #43 for Dark and Darker after completing a crucial database recovery. A persistent problem causing the game to crash when players exited has now been resolved.

There was a bug where classes other than Fighters equipped with the Fighter’s Weapon Mastery faced penalties while using their default weapons, and players will no longer face issues with removing poison damage when hit by enemies using the Poisoned Weapon, alongside perks like Over Healing and Shadow Touch.

Furthermore, the Rogue’s ability to pickpocket will now be restricted correctly to appropriate zones, ensuring that this skill cannot be exploited in basecamp. For the full list of changes, you can check them below:

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.
