Bugs with weapon unlocking



  • Please fix the weapon unlock system. It’s so frustrating when your kills don’t count towards unlocks while playing on official servers. And sometimes all the weapons are locked again. Workaround for that is logging on to a bunch of random servers and then they reappear but fixing it would be preferable :D

    Side note:
    The training tutorial needs fixing/polishing. Extremely buggy throughout. Still doesn’t unlock steam achievements. Also this area/level runs at much lower frame rate then all the other levels. This gives a very bad first impression to new players.

    Exploding heads/decapitation on ranged weapons/fists should not happen in my opinion. But I’m guessing it’s not considered a bug.

    Make sure that you’re playing on Official Torn Banner servers, that way you’ll be sure to progress further.

    Torn Banner is aware of that. If you’re not satisfied with tutorial please check these videos:

    @SlyGoat:

    Unfortunately this won’t be staying :P If you wanna blow peoples’ heads up from a distance I’d suggest the sling. It’s not crap anymore! :D

    While it’s intended for fists and sling, it’s not intended for bows and will get fixed in next patch.



  • Hi Rumpelstiltskin

    Thanks for the reply.

    @rumpelstiltskin:

    This might be a stupid question but are the TBS servers marked in some way other then the word Official? I only play on servers that have the word Official in the server name and vac required but I still on occasion encounter the bug where kills don’t count. Especially while unlocking the warbow. It felt like I had to unlock that puppy twice.

    I agree there are tons of great videos on youtube but my concern is more with the impression one gets as a new player. But as you say it’s probably getting looked at. Thanks for the list. 37 minuts of popcorn time 8-)

    I did not know that. Thanks for telling me and I guess I understand the lol factor in keeping it for fists :D

    If you’re having problems with any official servers contact TB Community Manager via email kimiko@tornbanner.com
    Make sure you write down exact number of the server though (Official #1 EU for example)



  • Just wanted to say that this bug DEFINITELY happens when playing on official servers. I’m a bit tired of people just saying “play on official servers and you can unlock weapons.” Maybe that works for SOME people…. but there is most certainly a weapon unlock bug that affects people regardless of server. I just got off an Official FFA server where my unlocked weapons would randomly become locked when we changed maps, and where kills did not count.

    I think this is an amazing game. But there are other games out there. I’d love to keep playing this one, but unless this gets fixed I’ll just play something else… it’s really frustrating not to be able to progress at all, and to have my progress randomly removed.



  • Hi there,

    We’re looking into this!

    Thanks!



  • I hope you resolve this bug very soon, because at the moment i can’t unlock new weapons and sometimes weapons that i unlocked are locked.
    I play the game less and less, cause this bug.



  • Pitching in. Why does so obvious bug even exist?!

    Unlock problem SEEMS to self-correct on some game restarts, but only unlocking weapons you couldn’t see last time, and still not unlocking anything further as you play. Sort of like catching up on itself. Steam achievements do pop up, but numbers on unlock counter don’t decrease.



  • @Kimiko:

    Thanks for the heads up! Really nice to know that you guys are looking into it.

    Still looking? Lol…



  • Getting really tired of it. It happens to me ALMOST ALL of the time even on official servers. I’m stuck on Rank 6 and my weapons keep resetting. Please, I really like the game but this bug is making me tear my hair out



  • i have this problem too.



  • Last patch notes read this was fixed, but its gotten worse for me. I seem to find less servers where I can actually make progress. Please don’t write bullshit on patch notes…

    Sometimes a map change will reset the stats and sometimes not. Seems totally random to me.

    And now the steam achievements are broken aswell. I have used the bow maybe 2 times and I got Cupid achievement. Whats up with that?



  • Hi all,

    new to the forum but wanted to post this.

    So many players are affected.

    I thought I fixed it yesterday and was able to unlock a weapon after doing the ‘steam game integrity check’.
    Played again today, had 27 on the shortbow and brought it down to 3. Tested if it was successful with a restart: 27 on shortbow again.

    I’m doing the ‘game integrity check’ again to see if this helps again. Will post again later.

    Hope you guys can fix it, cause it’s really frustrating to unlock weapons and lose it again :/

  • Seems to be a cache issue between local files (steam?) and TornBanner in game data?

    I run the integrity test:
    1st time: fails (4 files failed to validate and will be reacquired)
    2nd time: success.
    I can play again and I can unlock weapons again.

    I close the game, unlock some items, play again: I cannot unlock weapons.

    So before playing as workaround I run 2 integrity tests and I can unlock again.

    Maybe I should do that with deadliest warrior.

    And you only need to do one test. AS the first one doesn’t actually fail. It just says what was wrong with your game and fixes the problems. Doing it a second time is a waste of time.



  • Let me preface this post by saying I LOVE the game. My favorite FPS combat game out right now by far, and the best melee combat system I’ve played. It’s incredible.

    The system of weapon progression is a great idea. It forces me to try out new weapons that I might not use in order to unlock more weapons. It keeps me playing the game to get the veterans helmet. Unlockables are awesome.

    The problem is that I have no guarantee that my kills count towards unlocking weapons.

    First I heard “play on official servers”. So from level 2 - 15 I have only played official servers.

    Sometimes my kills count. Sometimes they don’t. I never know until I leave the game and join another game. I exit my game in rage after getting 50 kills in one server with bastard weapons, unlocking the Messer, and the Steam Achievement, and the Veteran Knights helmet, only to find the next day that I was 50 kills away from the Messer. I still had the achievements, still had the veterans helmet, but didn’t have the Messer.

    My question is, what the hell?

    I expect more from a game that I payed for. This bug is game-breaking and customers deserve more support than a “we’ll look into it”. I am not playing your game nearly as much as I would if this bug was fixed, and I won’t recommend it to my friends until the issue is resolved.

    And I will certainly NOT be buying the expansion because of this bug. If you can’t fix a game that has been out for a YEAR, I have ZERO confidence in your DLC and no desire to reward you for your lack of support.

    tl;dr The game is great. When it works. Weapon unlocks are broken and game breaking. Won’t be buying DLC because of it.

    same,

    even the workaround I tried isn’t always working.

    unlocked the crossbow (my last unlock) a few times and still rank 31 (should be 40+)



  • I also would like to express my frustration towards the bad support that the devs are giving ppl that paid for the game. At first glance it was one of the best games I played for years. However the weapons resetting randomly and wasting a lot of game time in order to unlock weapons only to find them locked again is frustrating and greatly reduces the quality of the game.

    I tried everything I could find on forums. Changing “F” to “f”, checking the firewall, playing exclusively on official servers, verifying game data (which worked only 1 time), disabling the steam cloud, etc…

    What is more frustrating is that I tried posting on this forum and my post did not go through (I hope this one does) and I tried mailing the support team and got no response. Its like they are telling us give u your money and then you’re on your own. This is dramatically lowered my regard towards this team and the game. I was going to buy the expansion but after this I doubt that I will even continue playing this game.

    Making games is not just about making money. Making your customers happy and supporting the product that you release is a major part of it. I hope someone listens.



  • So I’ll say almost the same as everyone.
    PLEASE! I LOVE this game!
    But it’s getting each day harder to motivate myself to play. Weapon unlock was buggy sometimes in the beginning.
    Since the last big patch, i played almost only on OFFICIALS servers (DE#x, UK#x, …. ) and my weapons unlocks have NEVER been saved.
    It’s sad to say but it’s true: never.

    I’m so tired of unlocking everything for the fifth time, can’t you put more efforts into this than on the DLC? It’s a major issue and if it was not in the DLC I guess we would have seen a (working) patch on the main game already.

    Guys, please, community maps are the reason I play these days. Otherwise I would have left. But the list is short atm and yeah, it will get boring soon without new weapons.

    Don’t be like EA and BF3 shit, releasing buggy patch every god damn 6 month with other shit in it. You are better than this (and I believe we deserve it too).
