Patches Patches

Yesterday's patch wasn't such a smooth ride as we had hoped, sorry. Your response was initially quite shocking for us as lot of problems were reported. In the end, we distilled the problems to a few core causes, and we have worked overnight to provide you with an updated patch as soon as possible. We apologize for the trouble, we were confident that the patch was mature and ready after extended testing, but we still missed some things.

The lessons learned and suggestions for you:
  • Let the patch finish! On some computers it may take up to 10 minutes for the patch to do its job, Windows may even claim that "application not responding" but in fact the patch is taking time to update all files. If you interrupt the patch before it's finished, you will end up with executable files and game data files out of sync, and the only fix will be a complete uninstall and re-install of the game.
  • The patch will fail and mess cracked or altered game files. The patch doesn't just plain copy new executable files or data pack files into the game's folder, it uses the existing files and only changes the inside sections of them which were changed. If your .exe's or .scs'es were in any way altered, the patch will fail, and fail silently - we never tested it against cracked game.
  • Make sure you have enough room on the hard-drive volume where your game is installed before you apply the patch. To be safe, you should have 4 GB of spare room on the hard drive for the patch to do all the changes. In the end you will end with about the same free space, the extra spare room is needed just for the patch operations.
  • The patch may have crashed for people using banned Product Keys, there was a bug in the code which should act "mercifully" on banned keys and only show up the Activation Screen again, but instead the game was crashing. Our mistake for not testing the patch with banned keys.
  • It seems that there may be some mods out there which affect the game save files in ways that make the new version of the game unable to read the save files. If you are using mods, make sure to make a backup of your "profile" folder so that you can safely revert things.
  • The ultimate reason that we need a new patch today is that there were incompatibilities with the patch and certain retail editions of the game, that was a problem we did not catch during testing, but should be fixed with this minor update today.
When things fail still for you and you are in doubt what to do, the solution is to uninstall the game and install a new complete fresh version of the game. Keep an eye on mod incompatibilities, and to avoid frustration of lost game progress back up your game profile.

Get the new patch from ETS2 Update page.

Get the complete new version of the game from ETS2 Download Page.

If you had no trouble with yesterday's 1.2.5 patch, there is no need to update again actually, functionally it's the same game. In fact even with the latest patch the game still identifies itself as version 1.2.5 as we haven't touched the game binary from 1.2.5 to 1.2.5.1.

Also please have patience with the new Asian languages support, the features necessary to make it work in the game are quite new and translations did not have much time to stabilize. Consider it the first step.

  4. Hi there.

    When will this patch be available on other update sites that are non-torrent?

    Bit miffed why Torrent has it first but waiting for it to be on AtomicGamer etc...pleeassee SCS

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's likely that they have to send the file to the AtomicGamer admin and have them add it for them. So it's a matter of waiting for the site admin to get around to it.

      Where as torrents they can do instantly themselves. It's no SCS's fault other sites admin are sleeping.

    2. It is online on the tastensen.dk mirror atm. It will be online on the .eu site later today (i just can't do it until later today)

      I would suggest the problem is not the game but your PC. Are you running anything extensive in the background that could be causing lag?

      However on another note i love the new illumination of lights on cars/trucks but they are way to weak during dark nighttime when you cant see cars/trucks in front of you until you almost is glued to their bumper and same with oncoming traffic with to weak headlights illumination.

  14. Hi,

    latest I was writing about my problem with my mod map -....now, my map is working ok !! Patch too. So, big job, guys !

    Anyway, take always time for do the best ! Is better wait on Patch then get garbage of it :) lol ... good luck and have a nice weekend !!

    Now, I have other small problem. Editor find some mistake...I think this is from my starting modifications of my new map .. 2x roads which are small and I can't find it where they're. I always get Report from Editor "Building item #337860 is too small" and the same for other, but I don't know how to find it and move them. Do I have any tool or action button that I can find them in mod map ?? Because, I can't work now, every my move in map ,Editor is blocking with massage box and this Report about to small building. So, if anybody give me some idea, how I can find this to things in map and remove them (with delete for sure), I'll be very grateful. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Now, I Rebuild your Original map without any modding in there (with F8) and Editor is find something out map in massage box - then I hit Enter and my Editor stoped and kick me out. So, is this F8 working good or not ? Must we use this Rebuild F8 button or not ? Because with "Build Map" button is working everything o.k.

      On other hand, I can see map on background (with "A") ...so I don't know what is problem here with that.

  15. are there any map changes from 1.2.5 to 1.2.5.1? cause i just added my mapedits yesterday to 1.2.5. if i do not have to redo the work it would be great.

  19. It would have been great if along with rain probability and brake intensity sliders you added the slider to control the amount of traffic (3 different ones for cities, highways and small roads would be almost too awesome). It just seems to me that the highways are too empty.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maybe you can add the possibility to customize the license plate? Otherwise great game. Hopefully you bring out DLCs with additional Trucks (Maybe US), additional Parts to customize your truck and some more countries and cities in France or Italy.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You don't see American-style trucks in Europe mostly due to overall length restrictions in the EU. Also SCS has discussed doing DLCs with extra cities and countries. It kind of surprised me that there wern't nearly as many cities in ETS2 than there were in ETS1, however the scale is much more massive in ETS2 than it is in ETS1.

  21. Where is the bus added in AI traffic??????????????

    1. You can find them in the cities unless you have some mods installed overriding traffic files, then either play without these mods or wait till the modmakers update their mods to support 1.2.5 version and then you'll see the buses.

    1. It appears that the content of the file got corrupted somehow. Do you have a SSD disk? Please uninstall the game and reinstall it using the updated full installer which is now available on http://www.eurotrucksimulator2.com/download.php using the torrent or "Local link" links.

    1. Well, you did absolutely not learn anything I see.
      It was not SCS but mods, cracks and pirates who was to blame for this shit.. Everyone else did not have any problems.

      Delete
    2. To be fair things like checking available disk space and checking the hash of base.scs/def.scs before trying to patch them, providing user with appropriate error message, all these things must be under patch installer jurisdiction.
      Although fixing the game so that pirates could play it was an unjustifiable waste of developers' time IMO.

      Delete
    3. It's better to remind the player using a banned activation key to activate the game with a proper key rather than to have the game crash - this way maybe we'll eventually convert people really liking the game into paying customers ;-)

    4. I agree SCS, let them play, get attached to the game, then do their bit, make them pay, because SCS really deserved it.

    5. I really like the updates (patches, DLC and expansion included). Shows that developers are interested in improving the game and at the same time is a great reason for people to purchase it.

  29. Will be updating later today. :) Be sure not to rush future patches, you are already doing a great job!

    All the problems people are having with the Euro Truck 2 may not be related to the software itself, but to their hardware. There are some issues SCS software cannot solve if it is all about your hardware making the game crash.

So glad you got DAF as an official licensed truck brand in the game also very pleased with the bus you have added into the AI traffic in the game it is so nice to have more variety in the AI traffic hopefully you will add more vehicles into the AI in future patches or even in a DLC.

  41. you guys should make some rouds like... 2 lanes in one side and 1 lane in second side than that 2 lanes become as a 1 and the 1 lane become as a 2 lanes:(make the roads more interesting, because we are driving mostly on highways and its a bit boring for me) here you can see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qL23c5qRY6o

    would be great if you will add some roadworks or if you gonna release/or making DLC's do 'RoadWorks DLC', because now there is no cool roadworks, just one type.

    And add some more vehicles to the AI like that

    And also in future we should be able to drive tandems, with trailer or without, thanks.

    And increase the speed of AI Trucks from 75 to 85? (it will be still easy to overtake, also its will give us some fun :P and maybe, like me i will sometimes overtake or just driving in convoy, now they are driving to slow ;/ 75 eh boring i have to overtake every truck.

  47. I´m not satisfied with the speed limits...AI are going over the limit everywhere, i tried to stay at the same speed as them wheres there where allowed speed limit 50, they where doing 70, so i stayed too on 70 and got the ticket..and the same thing goes on everywhere with the speed limits !

  49. There are two issues I've found so far since the patch was installed, The Map key "M" when pressed will randomly cause a "CTD" and the readjusted fatigue simulation will cause a fine only after two warnings saying your getting tired.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. +1 to the second point.

      I was able to do two jobs a day but the fact that i'm charged -150 fine while driving to the resting place is so unfair. I so miss the 4hour warning system; although annoying with yawning sound every hour but was better than a last hour warning and continous fines.

      If was possible to sleep while fatigue sim off, I'd do that as in yesterday.

      Can you add ability to sleep while the fatigue sim off meanwhile you are finding a suitable solution to fatigue simulation system/feature.

      Delete
    2. There is some early yawning about 40 game minutes before the messages even start. If you modded the yawning sound out, you might want to return it.

      It is possible to sleep even with fatigue sim off however there are limits how many times can you sleep in sequence before you need to do some driving.

    1. every gearbox in game is 12speed automatic gearbox. 12th gear may not be accessible eg because gearbox of your truck is damaged. you can chceck it in diagnostics screen.

      there is also specific behavior of some trucks. combination of gear ratio, differentials and rpm may make 12th gear viable for automatic gearbox only nearby 90kmh.

When I am reversing my trailer, every few seconds it keeps popping up and telling me that I can press enter to park the trailer, so I press F3 to get rid of it and then a few seconds later it pops up again. Very annoying. Also if I leave the parking brake on and try to drive off it pops up. I do not need to be told why I am not moving, I can work that for myself. Please stop it from doing this. Please stop it popping up at all, it is VERY ANNOYING. Sorry for shouting, but it is annoying.

  54. SCS, Thanks for the patch, everything works fine!
    Maybe somebody from your company will sometimes answer questions your fans? This would be great!)), For example whether to continue in the patches or DLS whether the new and old trucks, the police showed up at the car or not, is it possible to do damage to the car (any) and so on? Thank you, Regards, Oleg.

  55. Well I got the 1.2.5 patch last night, left it run til it finished (took several minutes on quite a fast quad-core PC) and it worked fine even with my mods and my profile which contains modded trucks (i.e. not standard game stuff, e.g. my super-merc with extra engine power!)

    I guess most of the problems were incomplete patch processing. It did *look* like it had stalled at one point while updating base.scs, but I just left it and after a bit it finished.

    a request for further releases:

    Put street lighting on junctions: most junctions in the game have no lighting even when the roads either side are lit - this is very unrealistic - the most likely places to be lit are the junctions. You just don't get a black hole in the middle of a junction anywhere in the real world.

  56. Does anyone else get black squares on some items on-screen? Ones I've identified so far are the A6 and Accord AI cars, the Magnum tractor, and something at the front of the trailer that carries large panels. There are also some on scenery items in some cities. (win7 32 bit, directX 9c)

    At a guess they're missing or corrupted graphics textures or items. I'm about to get the 1.2.5 full game install and try a re-install on the chance that my original database is corrupted.

  59. The game is 99% intellectually crafted and enjoyable except on 1%, the AI obviously. The speed, acceleration and braking is not good enought.

    The AI traffic don't follow rules of the road, do something about that.

    Most especially when it comes to giving right of way..They'd give right of way and bump into you..would bumb into you finding you driving within roundabout..would not yield especial on intersection e.g. M5-M4 intersection. While joining the M5 to London from M5, AI traffic will flood in ignoring the yield marking on the road.

    Please guys dont spoil the hard work of art you have came up with. We value, cherish and support you all the way. Do you jobs; be creative and fix error, and we'll do ours to purchase and enjoy your well crafted work.

  62. guys please try to fix the AI traffic for example when the highway is going from 2 lanes to be 1 lane roud the cars should change lanes like in zipper lock! because the cars what are waiting on the ending lane have no chance to change their lane.

    or even make it like in real ;d because ppl practically do not use the zipper lock system(but its much faster,) so in real ppl makes just a big plug cars, so its simple the ppl changing their lane before and before ... the 2nd lane will end!

    and its not only for this situation for example when you are escaping the gas station maybe ppl should use the flashes lights ;] and than change the lane and give us a free place to join the highway :D ah you guys are very intelligent ppl so you will know how to improve it ! but dont miss about it! :)

  66. Please also fix bus AI: They try to overtake on the smaller roads and because they are much slower, they crash into your truck/trailer in the process. At the very least, busses (but also cars), should 'check' if there is not a truck/trailer coming from behind.

    Now you may wonder why I even try to overtake on such roads as it is quite dangerous... but I like to drive fast :D. Other road users should be aware of what is approaching behind them and not get between the open road with 80 km/h if you are approaching with 90 km/h, it tends to go wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Not sure what the patch really improved but the busses but i'm pretty disappointed from 2 points:

    - The gearboxes didn't make it into the path 1.2.5 / 1.2.5.1, i hope they will be in the next patch then.
    - The new fatigue is maybe the worst fatigue handling that has ever been in an SCS game! I just came to Vienna at the end of my driving shift, delivered my cargo to EuroAcres and got 2 times fined for driving overtime just going from EuroAcres to the hotel. Thats outright RETARDED! Not to mention the much more harsh blackout where you can't even control your truck anymore. I mean it's not the players fault that SCS is too lazy to put in enough gas/rest stations so that you can't get to a resting place in time, so tone that down ASAP. Best is you revert to what it was before, i consider that the best fatigue handling that ever was in an SCS game but what we have now is definitly the WORST!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. gearboxes are there. one per brand, but each brand has its own real gearbox (and thus slightly different truck behavior).

      fine for driving over 11 hour is much more expensive in reality than in game. if you do not like it, turn off fatigue simulation.

      Delete
    2. Gearboxes: there are different gearboxes for each brand in the resources ranging from 9 to 16 gears. I hoped that the button for purchasing / upgrading gearboxes would get available in the upgrade ui. Would make a lot more sense than one per brand, espedially since combining a fixed gearbox with every type of engine gives suboptimal results.

      I personally don't notice a hell of a difference with the new gearbox at all. I'd really prefer to be able to buy the different gearboxes so that i find one suitable for the current trucks engine performance.

      And you don't get the point about the fatigue: You can't punish the player for things that he is not responsable for and that is at times driving overhours. Like i said, it's not even possible to get from EuroAcres to the hotel at vienna without getting 2 times fined. It's not about the money, i don't care about those ridiculous fines, it's about the principle. I have no chance to reach a bed.
      So the fix for this is: Only 1 fine per break and the probability should be reasonable around 33% or so but not 100% and not every 2 minutes!

  69. HelloI would like to know if this happens in other people.Since I'm past the 1.1.3 to the 1.2.5 patch I really lot of slowness in the games. It starts of the appearance of the menu to select the profile with many cut audio from home also. And then at the level of the map of the world, the game crashes any long second (5, 10 seconds) before displaying the map, the same observation when I want zoom in, zoom out. And overall when I ride, ca freeze more often than in the previous version. Have you a solution to this problem that I do hope not isolated.Fred

  74. SCS, I have a little suggestion for the next patch. It's really a simple thing:

    Every time that I get a notification in the game (expenses, fines, earnings, etc.) it is disclosed on the GPS window, but I prefer to use the one that comes attached to the truck panel. The thing is: I don't see any notifications if I close the GPS window. It would be nice if all the messages show up on the screen.

  83. First let me thank you for the great work and the patch, for me it went well, both times, even though I guess second one wasn't needed for me I installed it just the same.

    Have a question though, I thought this was a bug and was hoping it would be addressed but it's still here. When taking a train or ferry to cross over to/from GB the passage fare is always charged to me instead of my employer, why is that ? This makes this trips a bad choice overall, at least earlier in the game.
    There should some way to compensate the driver for having to pay the ferry bill himself, be it has a reimbursement at the final screen or by paying for the full trip length instead of just the driven kms. This is specially bad for trips involving the europort where you get charged close to 1000€ that you have no way of getting back.

    Just something to think about for your next patch.

    Also, for the DLC, for which I don't mind paying for, do consider adding more management options to the garage and more statistical information to. And throw in some options to better control what drivers should focus on carrying, or on which company to focus on, that could open the way to having cargo delivery contracts available, that would also be cool.

    Later, and keep it up!!!

    2. There are lots of country roads with no gas/rest stations. And if you are stuck on one of those it can take several hours before you get to a rest station which also makes driving with blackouts into a nightmare. Of course it requires playing the game to know that :)
      And like i said in another message, you get fined 2 times just driving from EuroAcres to the hotel at Vienna. 1 fine max per driving overhours and a probability of less than 100% (around 33%) for getting fined at all would be appropriate.

      Also shouldn't get fined at all when driving without cargo since sometimes you drive around for example to go to a certain truck dealer or go buy a garage or just cruise and admire the landscape.

      Delete
    3. >Of course it requires playing the game to know that :)

      Oh well, I guess it requires a truly experienced player to not be able to know where are you going and plan the rest stops ahead ;)

  113. I think that employees AI should be fixed. From several "game weeks" my employees status is "return to base" and than "driver couldn't find any job". They just don't make hardly any cash. I'm wondering..

  114. I had no problems what so ever with the 1.2.5 patch.. I had a few mods and the only one I had problems with were the physics 1.5 mod.. I just removed it and all my other mods and savegame worked perfectly! Of course I also bought the game so I never had to fight with any problems. And I run ONLY with ASUS, INTEL and NVIDIA... These three combinations have runned perfectly flawless for 5 years now and never broke down. SCS you are doing an awsome job. One thing I could use in a update, that makes me cry is that the sun is casting shadows BEFORE it even rises. Even on powerlines and also from behind hills :) And lets have scandinavia on the map too.. Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland. Also Spain, Portugal and all of Italy! Thanks in advance from a saticfied customer!
