Patch Notes Update April Update - Patch 2

You are downloading from the FD servers directly. Some people have reported issues with this ever since ED launched. In that case I personally recommend using the Steam servers instead (it is also MUCH faster for many people who can use the FD launcher!). You can find the instructions here:
https://steamcommunity.com/app/359320/discussions/0/487877107132139130/

In your case I kinda suspect there is some file corruption that is affecting both the game and the updater. If you dont want to use Steam, I suggest competely uninstalling ED and re-installing from scratch. I've had this happen with other games as well and this usually fixes it as well, clumsy as it is. Sorry to hear about your struggles!
Back up your keybinds before uninstalling.
 
For me, the FSS is not completely fixed yet. Sometimes, I will zoom in to an object, be it a body, asteroid field or transmission, and the screen seems to scroll, moving the target away from my cursor.

Occasionally, it also seems to do a little jump - can't think of a better way to describe it.

Should I bug report it, or is posting here enough for others and Devs?

Add confirmation to the existing bug report or vote it up, is probably the best thing to do.
 
Not sure exactly what's causing it, or if anyone else is experiencing it, but when I go to the materials trader the list doesn't load. Just the retrieving list text and animation shows. Left it for 5-10 minutes and it was still going.
 
So I can no longer play the game.
Thank you, Frontier. I never got any response to my ticket. I can not load my game, I did nothing wrong.
Basically Frontier destroyed 2500 hours of gameplay. Thank you, Frontier.
I can not update my game, it will stuck, some data is maybe corrupted.
I don't care. Frontier doesn't care.

When is the next bug fixing update/patch 3?
End of 2020. With over 2000 reported bugs in the issue tracker and just 32 marked as solved I hardly can see any different answer. And still no progress in sight. This is coming from someone who's usually the white knight mollifying all doomsayer posts. Sigh...

This sucks.

However, if all else has failed, I would suggest reinstalling ED. After the update I had all sorts of unexplained software glitches. So I bit the bullet and deleted ED (except the journal files and player data which is saved in a different directory anyway). You may also want to backup your custom bindings file. I then reinstalled it from scratch. Let me say this solution is a pill as its a 22 Gb download and you have to re-config the game, but the upside is that it's now running 100% glitch free on my rig. Good luck either way.

Hi
sorry if already covered but.... do you have the oculus version by any chance? the last few updates it failed to update and just got in a cycle of trying to update and then failing.

everytime it has fixed for me by uninstalling from the oculus front end. dont panic... for what ever reason it does not fully uninstall... then you click the install button again right after and then the patch downloads and updates correctly.

i hope this helps and works for you. Not offering excuses for why it is this way, but there are a lot of us on oculus having this happen and this fix seems to work every time.
 
Here is what I did: I deleted EVERYTHING. Every single data from Frontier on my side, on my system.
Then of course I deleted everything running the launcher via options.
After that I re-installed hoping for the best and after 6 hours the program was running again.

Thank you all for your concerns.

My request is for Frontier: make the updates not 100 gigs. The time is too long and apparently IF something went wrong while updating the files are corrupted and everything breaks down.

Please.

100gb update?
Something off there as the only game i have which is over 100gb is gears of war 4. Elite iirc is around 20gb give or take and the updates are smaller still
