    Frame limiter is your friend. Expedition:Conquisador has similar problem of >9000 fps.

    some games without proper limiter/vsync and some bad coding will run as hard as your gpu can work, so yeah, notvturning on limiter will cause the frame goes over 9000 as work your gpu like it is mining bitcoin.

    But to answer the question why? It is a mystery

    Nn.

    Incidentally, this is a good game, but I strongly dislike the changes from Conquistador. Being more of an isometric RPG drained the immense sense of discovery and exploration to a fraction of what it formerly was. They traded design sensibilities that were fun and thematically appropriate for more theme parky BG2 elements.

    A good example of what I mean is that in Conquistador you have these vague Indiana Jones style encounters with supernatural forces, but you have to dig around for them. Now you get totally on the rails camping dreams with Odin. Can't miss 'em.

    Can't help but feel as though this franchise should be above that.

    I like the direction they took with this game, but I do wish they would have been able to keep some of this

    a little more alive. I would definitely say that I prefer Vikings to Conquistador in general though.

    Hi, I don't understand, 4 of my companions are starving. Even if I camp 4 times in a row, with enough rations and meat, and Eydis cooking, everytime I get the same message after camping : "4 of your companions have not eaten" ! Confusing....

    I had a similar problem. Eventually it went away, I don't know why.

    Word of advice: either ally yourself with one of the factions or go full fantasy heathen fag and conquer britain. The "prosperity" ending is very unsatisfying and you miss quite a bit of content.

    Also, it is possible to make an alliance with Mercia. One of the most obscure outcomes in the game actually.

    The type of wood doesn't really have any bearing on gameplay, outside a few random events.

    I wanted to ask this, but actually my question is if this game is in a PoE 3.0 type state, or ever going to be

    Just finished the Denmark campaign with the 1.05 patch and it makes a world of difference to stability. Entering town is no longer a coin toss to see whether the game will crash or not. Changes like the player bonus formation round and limits on skill progression are all for the better.

    Finished! Britain has been crushed and my legacy is secure. Upon meeting the required Power resource I was half dreading an abrupt cutscene signalling the end of the game, but to my surprise I was able to take part in the invasion. Glad to say the improved stability does extend to the second campaign. If anyone has been tentatively nibbling their credit card waiting for Expeditions: Viking to reach a playable state, now's a good time to pull the trigger.

    The next patch 1.0.6 is going up for beta testing soon. It'll include more customization options, support for custom portraits and support for custom random events, and a few other things as well as hopefully fixing the last crashing issues (We had to update the engine for this, which is why it's taking longer). The new difficulty settings and ironman will be in 1.0.7.

    Managed to run it on my cousin's system.
    Damned good fun Bros.
    Dane-axes are the shit. My Viking of 10 10 1 4 4 stats can mow down most archers, berserkers and spearfaggots in a single blow. Had only two hard fights so far though, logic and grainne.

    The new patch(BETA - 1.6) sure is sweet. I guess right now the game is pretty close to being in a "finished" state.

    My opinion hasn't changed. I dislike the viking setting but the game is so good I am going to replay it.

    Bought it on release, but will most probably only start playing the 1.07 version.

    Make it the best as possible, aye!

    I finished it twice on normal, it's an enjoyable game but way too easy (when I find it easy, that means it's seriously easy). BTW, there is a huge difference in number of quests in Picts vs Northumbria. I liked Picts better so found it very dissatisfying that I have very limited number of quests to complete for them which was also reflected in reputation. By the time I was done crushing Northumbria, I still had higher rep with them than Picts.

    20 hours in the game. Very decent. One of the best games of 2017 (could be my GOTY if there were no Persona 5) and much better than TToN.

    We haven't broken even yet, but in time we're confident we'll get there. We're not ready to talk about what's next, but the next game is already in pre-production.
