Patch Notes September Update - Patch 1

fdev have done quite a bit of posting updates into mega-threads recently so they don't seem to realise that important updates get lost in this process. So I think Will's emoji was just 'I am puzzled'. Which he would be, if they haven't seen that buried / edited updates are an issue. But hey, reading emotion from text is an inexact science 🤷‍♀️
Well there are several ways to get relevant information. You can click on the Dev Post icon to cycle through their replies. You can follow them and see all their posts in your personal forum news feed. You can visit https://elitedevtracker.com/ (which for some reason doesn't display posts by Stephen Benedetti) or you can follow the RSS feed https://ed.miggy.org/devposts.html (which is what I do). So if you are really interested in communication it's not that difficult. Sure, they could also start a new thread for each and every comment they make, but I feel like this would be a little over the top. For more "important" stuff (like the bobblehead), maybe a new thread would've made sense, but for me there is no clear right or wrong in this case.

PS
I am just happy that they are posting... ;)

I am aware of these - but really the very fact that there are so many external ways to find news posts indicates some issues 🤷‍♀️
 
It would be awesome if the forums's dev tracker was actually working. But considering they can't even get their shop online I wouldn't get my hopes up... ;)
Why do people say the shop isn't online? I bought Arx and then cosmetics with those Arxs just the other day, no problem.
 
..... So if you are really interested in communication it's not that difficult. ........
The things is though that it is their job to communicate effectively, the onus should be on them to get the information realdily available to us, not require us to actively search for it. Customers having to rely on third party tools to find out what is going on shows that the company's communicatons are faulty.

If the "Staff/Developer Posts" option on the forum just returned staff posts and not just list every thread with a dev post in it then that might be OK but at the moment they are not making a decent fist of communicating on the forum.

Precisely.

Using that argument you could just as well complain that reading their comments requires a web browser... ;)
Anyway, considering that most other developers aren't communicating at all I am quite happy that Will usually makes several posts per day. And as said above, you could just follow them using the forum software.

As said above, with that I absolutely agree.

I normally rely on OA to keep me informed since I stopped being obsessed.

Ok , here is what the EliteDangerous64.exe.watchdog file says about my copy of ED bombing out on "Unable to Initialize Network. Please Check Your Connection" on a Verizon DSL connection that worked fine for ED for 41/2 years. It only handles IPv4 addressing;

Opened log file.
StartProcess
waiting for event...
Event triggered!
Target app exited cleanly with exit code 3221225477.
Closed log file.

The associated network log

What address, precisely, is ED looking for?

Nobody wants to have such customers. If someone would be that upset with me because I raised an eyebrow, after he accused me of not doing something while I evidently did it, well... I am pretty sure that I would show him the door.
And all that because they basically gifted you a Thargoid bobblehead and increased their offer by another week or something. I really have no words for this, but I am pretty sure that it's the same people who are responsible for the sad state of the world. Their false entitlement and greed is the root of most evil and little examples like this show that they don't have a place in society.
So it's not like customers are a irritation, just unreasonable people.
Epic Sarcasm! You are a Master! Props! 11/11! #Over9000

Try validating your files from the Options tab in the ED launcher. Or uninstall , reboot, reinstall. or just hit upgrade and go for a walk. That last one worked for me.
