Quick ETS2 hotfix patch

This is supposed to be announced tomorrow only on the official website, but for our most loyal fans reading the blog late today we have a chance to take an early look at an upcoming "hotfix" for ETS2.

We are working on a bigger patch that will address many things in the game including lots of asset tweaks and map tweaks, but this patch is addressing two potential crash situations in the game. The bugs were discovered and reported to us by customers over the past few days, and we felt it was important to get them fixed quickly, without waiting for the "big patch" to make it through the complete development and beta testing.

At the moment we only have a torrent link, the normal executable file download will come live once we have a mirror or two in place, hopefully in the morning.

ETS2 patch from any version to 1.1.3 - torrent

Fixes in this patch:
  • Improved handling of fatigue.
  • Stopping of advisor lines fixed.
  • Some potentially crashing issues fixed.

  2. Cool...was wondering what was going on with that text line...hehe.

    Just an fyi, I noticed sometimes my cargo takes damage even though I didn't hit anything, even reloaded to check and it is somewhat repeatable (2 out of 3 tries). Happened as I pass a white angled wall by the north side of the road, if that helps any.

    Hope it gets fixed at some point, am becoming paranoiac checking F7 ever once in a while now. :P

    Thanks for patch though. :)

  3. Hey SCS,

    Great work on the game, i love it real badly!
    I don't have any problems with crashes.

    But it is very nice that you support the game this well, and helping the community.

    And its always good to have a more stable game.

  5. Amazing game! Cant wait for more content like roads states maybe different cargos/trailers or more tuning options! I really wouldnt mind if it was dlc for 10-15e maybe with complete France Italy Poland and Slovakia maybe. Then another dlc with Spain, Portugal, Western part of Russia and Croatia then Greece, Romania, other Balkan states etc. This game simply rocks, thank you for making this :)

  6. hmm, wonder what the " big patch " is having for us, hope it will include the antialiasing thing , x4 or x8 , or even x1 that actually works , not like the useless current one !

    1. Yep, I'm interested in this too since only thing so far I dont like about graphics settings is AA...

    2. Yes, current antialiasing is not very good...

    4. go play GTS or ETS1 and see how the game looks like with x4 or x8 AA ! ETS2 is supposed to be at least the same or even better with x16 AA ! thats what i expected anyways :/

      Delete
    5. There must be the settings like in original ETS! 1x, 2x, 4x etc AA settings, not MLAA which doesn't work very well!

      Delete
    6. set the scale to 400%.........

      Delete
    7. I agree with the people above! SCS can try to implement better AA other than the default one.

      You can notice even on SCS pictures from the blog, that there are jagged edges.

      Delete
    8. AA problem is somewhat fixed by setting the scale to 200% or higher since it basically just creates 2x more pixels (4x in case of 400%) so the "stairs" look smoother. But the problem is that on high resolutions it means huge impact on performace, i.e. I use 2560x1600 2xGTX 570 SLI, and on 400% I get 8-12 FPS, cause the cards have to actually build a 10240x6400 frame. Forcing AA in driver panel doesn't influence the image at all, as it seems.

      Delete
    9. And that's why we need "normal" anti aliasing options. :)
      I have also tried the scaling, but as you said it totally ruins the playability and FPS drops too much.

      Delete
    10. yes anything over 150% scaling brings my i7 950/Gtx560Ti to its knees. I looks good but the AA needs some tweeking I think =)

      Delete
    11. XBK, have a good point , when you put it that way. i run at 4545x900 with few OC'ed 560's (the 2GB ones) and there is not way i can play at 400% scale at that res. on one monitor, its a pice of cake tho.

      how much your 570's have vram? cause at that res you need more than 1GB to properly run ets2. mines are eating at around 1.8GB and that's a lot!

  13. I've brought several new releases in the past few months that have all been hyped by their production company and I have to say that only Eurotruck 2 has actually lived up to the hype.

    All the rest have been dissappointing re-hashs without much effort going into them, ETS2 has been rebuilt reworked and made completely positive strides totally deserves to be #1 and stay there for a long time to come.

  14. Hello ,
    i too have problem with performances, running a HD5870 on a 3770k, during nights in the cities with lights especially, fps can drop a lot and start to sutter heavy.

    Also i found this in all gas stations in UK during a trip there, no matter the gas station brand all had same thing:
    http://img4.hostingpics.net/pics/898777eurotrucks22012102318434748.jpg

    Also would like to see full France done and the south or europe with Spain and Portugal please in few months if you can guys, anyways i don't regret putting 30 euros in this game, worth every cent and when i see Dev's at work to fix problems it's even more satisfying , Thx a lot guys.

    1. lvl21 here and it's fine, hope it's not bugged tomorrow though, that would suck. :/

      Delete
    2. So far it looks like the missing jobs are caused by some mod which prevented the game from generating any jobs for near future. For example the mod might contain a map without generated navigational data. That data are only present when the map is saved using the "Build Map" button in the editor.

      To fix this you need to remove that mod and advance the game time by driving/resting in your own truck or by using the g_set_time console command.

      Note that it is always good idea to create explicit save of the game before trying any new mod in case something goes wrong.

      Delete
    3. i had this too after installing a modded map. All jobs went away and I could not get them back even after removing the mod. Had to resort to an earlier save.

  16. Quick question for SCS.

    Could it be possible to change the speed limits in the UK so that it's closer to the rest of europe?

    ie: 50 in town instead of 48 and 90 on highways instead of 84.

    I kept getting tickets in the UK until I used google to translate the mph to kph. Was starting to feel like in that movie 'Snatch' when the guy comes back to the states and is asked if he has anything to declare and responds "don't go to england". :P

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In UK there are several limitations I saw so far: 30, 50 and 60 mph. Which means the limitations are 48 km/h, 80 km/h and 96 km/h*. And as in real life you're allowed to drive with some diversion which means that in UK you can drive with no more than 53 km/h, 85 km/h and 101 km/h. If you keep your speed at these values or below - you won't be fined.

      1 mile = 1.609 km, so you just have to multiply the uk speed limit by 1.6 and add 5 km/h to the result and you'll see what speed you should maintain so that you don't get fined.

      Delete
    2. even easier when you travel from mainland europe to uk before you set off go into option/gameplay settings and turn on miles and vica versa

      Delete
    3. you do know that UK speed limits are in MPH? 30 mph (about 48 Km/h) is standard in UK urban areas. Plus, in UK law, trucks on single carriageway roads have a 40 mph (64 Km/h) speed limit, which the game does not replicate, so you can go faster :). As to BG_Trucker: you can get busted for 31 in a 30 in the UK if you're unlucky. The law about speedometers states that for a real speed of 30, the speedo can show anything between 30 and 33. Trucks of course all have tachos and they should be calibrated accurately by law.

      Delete
    4. That's right, at one time when there were coppers with common sense; you'd get a bit of ticking off if you were going maybe 35 in a 30. Now we have speed cameras, which do you for going 1 mph over the limit. Seriously speed cameras are the worst bloody thing in the history of man; you watch the traffic when they come upon a speed camera, people are so scared of them, the brake down to maybe 20 mph just to make sure.

      Delete
    5. The point I'm trying to get at is that it seems rather unfair since those limits in the UK are made to emulate the speed limits in the rest of Europe, it just so happens those are the closest whole numbers in mph.

      Or is it really so that the manufacturer speed limit on UK trucks is lower than the rest of Europe? That IRL a UK trucker would be blocked by manufacturer limits from driving at the same speed as other truckers on European roads?

      Seems weird to me, but fine, I can accept that if its the case, I'll just avoid the UK or change the settings to mph when going there.

      Delete
    6. Well, in the UK artic's are limited to a maximum of 56mph. Interesting forum entries here: http://www.car4play.com/forum/post/index.htm?t=4522

      I must admit I haven't experienced it, but I use mph so that's probably why!

  19. Few observations:

    -Display adapter fans go at full RPM when game is played. Does not happen in any other game I currently own. Every detail is full and game is running very smoothly. Display adapter is Nvidia 560TI with newest official drivers (306.97 - WHQL)

    -Alt-tab to Windows works for one or two times. After that game just freezes and windows cursor can be moved on the screen. In order to get to Windows you have to Ctrl-Alt-Del through task manager. Operating system is Windows 7 64-bit witn Nvidia 560TI with newest official drivers (306.97 - WHQL)

    -FFB from wheel seems to be bugged. At start it works but goes missing after some time. Not exactly sure but if I remember correctly it was between jobs at garage. When you start new job there is no FFB. It can be fixed by going Alt-Tabbing (or Ctrl-Alt-Del through task manager) to Windows.

    There's the few issues I have encountered. Hope this helps you devs fixing some of these bugs when and if you encounter them :)

    2. i have few 560's and they are loud too. its not a bug.
      great wheel btw :)

      Delete
    3. The fan starts working faster at menu, company management, truck dealer etc. because the game engine basically says to the VGA "Come on, give me everything you got", so it gives like 250 FPS, but loads the GPU to 100%. When you are on the road, there's much more stuff for the PC to work with, like physics, AI, overall huge scenery etc., so the GPU load drops and the fan slows down.

      As for FFB, on my Logitech Formula Force EX only centering works, no FFB effects from asphalt/ground change, bumps on the road etc. And sometimes it randomly makes the FFB strengts much higher, so I have to unplug the wheel and plug it back in again to reset the driver.

      Delete
    4. use Evga precision to limit fps to 60 or something like that, then the cards wont be so loud. the more frames the harder the cards work, the more heat, the more sound.

      i actually don't care about the sound, my headsets are louder :) as for FFB, there are none! unless i go offroad. then it starts to shake and all that. driving with no FFB, is really rubbish.

  20. People who has problems with anti aliasing set scale to 400 then looks everything good

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. A scaling of 400 shows more detail in the distance but 1. fps goes down the drain and 2. FSAA still doesn't work well (I see things shimmering and flickering ALL the time...).

      Let me add though that this bad FSAA is the ONLY thing that's not so good about the game. ETS2 actually is the FIRST truck sim I decided to buy (and I tried all the demo's of the other ones the last decades!). It's great, awesome, beautiful, fun: I am delighted to FINALLY have a truck sim I actually like!!! This makes it even a bigger shame FSAA doesn't work too well... but I am enjoying my purchase nonetheless. Great game. (Never ever expected to say all this about a truck sim... ;) )

      Delete
    2. exactly, when i set the scale to even 300, the fps drops from 60 to 20 or 25 , and if i open the headlights or use the blinker, the game lags like sh*t !
      *sigh*
      i dont know what to do :/

  24. Hello, found a few bugs for your big patch

    -I just upgraded my DAV truck with a bigger cab and I lost my 510 hp engine back to a 360 without reimbursing me the engine :( please fix
    -North of Carlisle (England) on the M6, when you are going north, the GPS tells you to take the service area for a shortcut :)
    -I don't know if its a bug or something you guys missed, but hazardous material can be forbidden in some tunnels, I don't know about Europe laws regarding this. In some case, we should take the boat rather than the train.
    -I noticed some exits that are closed (Big orange walls pointing) Maybe they could be open. Sometimes people take the wrong way and have to travel 6 hours to make a U-turn.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It happens all the time, with all trucks, even if you try (without buying) a new cab, the chassi and the engine, go back to stock. To worksround, while they don't fix it, when you change anything in the cab, go to chassi and engine and select what you have bought, that way, you don't lose anything.

    2. I confirm the gps telling me to go to the service station for the shortcut :P

    2. Wow, just as was said so many times, by you I might add. Oh cmon just release already we can take a few bugs here and there...blabla, add nausea.

      They clearly stated that they were hunting for game breaking bugs! Do you know the meaning of game breaking? Jeez!

      Delete
    3. First of all, there is and was not 50 beta testers.
      Until one week or so before release, there was only 10 beta testers. And YES we did absolutely not do anything. Why would we, the bugs came by themself, well at least I think so, while there is found over 1100 so fare. Wonder who found them.
      AND the AI engine is hard to do anything right here and now, so looking away from that, you should not find that much. AND like Ziland said: Everyone was ready to get a buggy game, as long as they should not wait that long. Where did that tune go now? Huh..

      Delete
    4. @ ZilandOctober 24, 2012 3:39 PM

      Off course we can take the bugs, but if nobody report them, they wont get fixed. And beside, the first release do need annoying bugs, in order to piss off those who illegally download this game.

    5. If you really are one of the beta testers, there's much for you to learn about communicating with the customers.

    6. If you knew what a beta tester are, then you would know that they do not talk to the customers.

      Delete
    7. My point is why did the BETA testers miss so many bugs? There where more than 50 anyway, SCS said.

      Delete
    8. @ MarkOctober 24, 2012 8:53 PM

      3 reasons:

      1: To leave a crappy version of this game to those who illegally play this game while others pay for it.
      2: Releasing a patch (like 1.1.1) will fuck other things that were fine before.
      3: To fix the major bugs in order to prevent crashing games. Tiny bugs like AI not driving correctly, things not appearing properly is minor bugs that will be fixed. Not the BIG problem that prevent players from playing normally.

      And no, I am not a beta tester, nor even know one. Its just common logic.

      Also, sarcasm can be funny sometimes, you just have to read between the lines :)

  33. Yeah seen some AI issues, most notable one: AI traffic joining a highway (motorway, autobahn, autoroute etc) has a nasty habit of coming to a halt at the end of the slip road (ramp). In reality you accelerate up to speed and merge with the traffic, only in very rare circumstances would you stop at the end of a slip road.

    There's also inconsistent AI behaviour at junctions with sometimes the car giving way when I'm joining the road, or other times cars pulling into the road in front of me where I have right of way: however, I regard that as accurate portrayal of the kind of assholes you see on the road every day.

    2 other minor annoyances: 1) it'd be nice if the game save included what radio stream you were listening to so you don't have to reset it every time you start the game and 2) the settings for extra lights get turned off every time you buy anything in the upgrade shop. Also, the "new updates" listed some exhausts but I don't see them on any update screen. Not a big problem, just an inconsistency.

    The only other thing that comes to mind is some of the internal engine sounds are naff. Ones I noticed were the DAV and Valiant, the Scanias sound cool :)

    Overall a very good game and well worth the money.

    1. Llewelyn: for the exhaust problem, you need the sideskirt to be able to place them ;) (i don't know how they call it in english but the part that usually hide the tanks behind the cockpi.

      and i agree, awesome game !

      Delete
    2. ah I see. can't have sideskirts on 6-wheelers, that'll be why I can't see them. Also the one 4-wheeler I still have (for the new drivers in the company) doesn't have them. Maybe at a higher level I can get some nice vertical stacks :)

      Delete
    3. I have to admit i was searching for the sideskirts and exhausts too on my 6 wheeler (only had one (employee don't need top of the line's truck lol)).

      Delete
    4. Im not sure completely sure now, but when i had sideskirts in my scania i still couldnt place any exhausts in my scania. I have to try again one day.

      Anyhoo... there's a mod where you can add one exhaust to the left side of the truck even without sideskirts.

  34. One other point: getting quite a lot of black squares on the video. This may be my rather old (but still good, Nvidia 7900GTX) video card. Some of the cars, some views of the reenault magnum, some of the pedestrians and that tall trailer with the big panels on it spring to mind as repeat-offenders. It kind of looks like the specific graphic is missing or something so it shows a black square instead. Anyone else had this?

  38. Two things; one minor bug and one annoyance.

    First off the annoyance.

    I really dislike what you have done with fatigue in the new patch. Previously the tired warnings would could up on the 90min remaining mark, which was acceptable (though too frequent in my opinion.)

    The "improvement" now starts with the annoying warning before the THREE HOUR mark! Please please change this back, or tell me how I can do it myself, alternatively is there a way to keep fatigue but disable the Route Nav warning?

    I am quite capable of checking my sleep time on my own without these persistent early warnings, though having a warning about 90mins before is useful for checking for the nearest rest stop, three hours is simply annoying having the yawning and pop-ups so frequently that it is actually putting me off playing the game. As it is I am considering removing the patch or turning off fatigue completely.

    And now the minor AI traffic bug.

    Please consider putting traffic lights on single lane roads that T-junction onto dual carriage ways. As this video shows, you can literally spend hours waiting for the traffic to attempt to pull out. In this case I was there about 4 minutes (equal to over an hour in game time) before getting bored and ploughing my way down the wrong side. However I recently had the same issue near Aberdeen too, in that case I waited - I was there 15 minutes! Please take a look at this and either improve the AI so that they can move onto the next bit of road, or change the road to have traffic lights and solve it that way.

    In this particular case the road is the little winding road from just outside Torino that goes towards Bern.

    1. We got feedback that the behavior after the 11 driving hours is too forgiving. We plan to change that behavior so the player might also temporarily loose control over the truck at random times when driving longer than 11 hours without rest. The fatigue warning was extended to accommodate for unexpected delays (like the traffic lights you mention) and long sections without rest places on some roads so the player has chance to react to that before this happens.

    2. I agree with Komat, but about the traffic, just save then load the game and it's gone.

      Delete
    3. With the new patch, driver starts yawning 4 hours and 30 minutes before the "next rest stop" mark. This is not normal. Change it back please, this is really annoying. I want would like to turn it off...

      Delete
    4. Totally agree with mohegan13 about fatigue. Not a small period of driving time you have to listen the annoying yawning sound... At least decreasing frequency will make the sound more tolerable.

      Delete
    5. The voice of truth after holding razdrožaet. Had to disable the fatigue!

    6. Anon who replied below me, I didn't mention anything about sleep. I'm not sure if the feature is good or bad, I haven't seen it in use yet.

      Delete
    7. I really like the fatigue feature, but if it is now changed, I might as well turn it off. It was just perfect as it was in its original state. If it is about realism, I guess most drivers would not even jawn after 15 hours behind the wheel, so realism is certainly no excuse for having such a long period of rest-warning.

  39. Hi,
    You know what? ETS2 is really great, but what I really dream of is USTS (US Truck Simulator). Big trucks with engines in front of cabin with huge mufflers up to the sky :)
    Yes, I know that there was Extreme Trucker, but I think that ETS2 engine is much better.
    Cheers!

    1. there was wheels of steel, and ALH. they were good. I'm hoping for a new US game based on the new physics/game engine developed for ETS2, that would be awesome.

      Delete
    2. Except for Extreme Trucker, they made six american truck games. They are older, but still enjoyable. Pedal to the Metal is my favourite one. I think they will make new American Truck Simulator in future, with ETS2 graphics and physics engines, but until then, you can have lots of fun with those older titles.

      Delete
    3. I agree about a USTS...The physic and graphic engine has improved so much! A truck simulator in USA would be awesome (and especially with the G25/27/H shifter support!)

      Delete
  40. Guys, seriously need a forum. I know you're flat out, but perhaps members of the ETS2 community Beta testers could volunteer to moderate it for you.

    Really need a place to log issues, suggestions and share mods, shots, videos, etc.

  41. There is one bug that Is getting annoying, when you first start a profile the blinkers are working great with no lag but after hitting about level 10 they will lag up so every time the blinker flashers the game slows then picks up and slow again till there turned off. most times i don't use them, as its bad when trying to slow down and you cant tell how fast your going due to the slow down/speed up of FPS

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes this is really bad, i bought the game and i can't remember having such problem when i first tested it in demo version,now with my own truck (volvo) i get this so often that sometimes it makes me do accidents due to the slowdown of speed when fps vary in game, it piss me off a little

  42. Realy a great game, that's for sure!

    It might sound weird but what I'm missing in the game is a passenger mode ;-) From time to time I would like to sit beside my hired truck driver at work and just look around from the window to see all the beauty you guys have modeled for us. I'm missing those nice views because I have to keep my sight always on the road ahead and focus on driving. Sometimes, I would just like to be a passenger :-)))

    1. How did you install the game? The patch will not find the game if required values are not found in the Windows registry. In that case you need to copy it to the directory you installed the game to (contains the base.scs file). The patch will also not find the game if the main game executable does not exactly mach one from the officially released versions.

  53. Hi,

    This new fatigue warning is ridiculous! It starts to annoy me 4 hours before??? It's not a patch it just became worst... in the old games when you were tired you got a black screen so you probably hit a tree and you were forced to stop.. now it just a grey screen and you can see through :D

    1. We plan to restore the inability to control the truck when sleeping. The warning was supposed to ensure that the player is notified that he needs to plan the rest however it likely starts too early.

  54. Hi, SCS

    On MAN Truck...when tires wear is above 15%,on dashboard display appears red warning until tires repairing.

    I think it would be better that after some time(eg one minute) the warning permanently disappears and allows normal usage of display functions.The same principle can be with other parts damages.

    ...just a suggestion

  56. Hi there. I have problems with the game when I use my steering wheel Logitech WingMan Formula GP! When you drive straight ahead appears a bug and the truck turns left and right alone.

    1. Try recalibrating the wheel in Logitech Profiler.
      My Formula Force EX sometimes loses centering (I make a turn and it centers with a slight incline left or right so the truck starts turning by itself). But it fixes itself next time I turn in the opposite direction.

    1. please, before those sugestions check truck speedlimits per country - on highways are in most countries in europe 70-80 km/h - so it is correct as it is

    3. I agree with OP here. Many trucks are going much too slow, especially on highways. I have been driving a lot on Autobahn, and most trucks there are driving in 90kph and some even faster. Same in Norway where I live.

      So the suggestion, let them drive 80-90 unless there are specific reasons not to, then it would feel more real.

      Some regular cars could also go a bit faster sometimes, at least at daytime when you can see them easily. I know the speedlimits are there, but in RL most people go around 140-150 on most european highways.

    -REALISTIC V8 SOUND IN V8 SERIES OF SCANIA AND FOR SURE REALISTIC V8 ---->STRAIGHT EXHAUST SOUND<----
    -CABLES CONNECTED TO TRAILERS.
    -BETTER WHEELS ON TRAILERS
    -DIFFERENT WHEELS FOR EACH TRUCK BRAND(THE CENTER OF A RIM ,THE PART WITH THE BOLTS IN CENTER,DIFFERS FROM ONE TRUCK TO ANOTHER)
    -ABILITY TO SEE YOUR DRIVERS ON ROAD,AI TRUCKS BEEING TUNNED,ABLE TO TURN WINDOWS ON/OFF,MOVEMENT AROUND THE CABIN AND OUT OF THE TRUCK AS A HUMAN...

      - Stay away from AI cars, they are so unpredictable.
      - Do not tail gate AI (following closely).
      - Give yourself a braking distance.
      - Keep the doors closed when needed. (And by doors, I mean an escape route for AI).
