Help us Help You!

We have been working on the recent game update for several months, spending a ton of time on fixing, testing, and re-testing again and again. When we released the 1.4.1 patch, we felt pretty confident that it's in very solid state. In reality, bug reports started coming in almost immediately.

The game is BIG, and growing bigger. A new feature or a fix for one bug may often introduce a new problem; such is the nature of big software projects. We'll need to figure out betters ways to test the releases thoroughly, but effectively and quickly.

We have been thinking about involving a wider group from our fan community in testing for quite some time, but now we see that we need to do more than just ponder it. We need to give it a try.

We are making new builds of the game for testing purposes pretty much every day. On the way from 1.3.1 to 1.4.x, we have been through 96 major revisions and testing builds! Over a hundred people had access to the builds to help us test them, but it is obvious that this is still no enough eyes, not enough combinations of hardware, not enough variety in how our testers play the game. So we thought - what if we tried to make our daily betas publicly visible, for thousands of people to give them a try? The inspiration basically comes from what Mozilla is doing with Firefox Nightly Builds.

And here we are, with a quick update of the previous ETS2 update. Experiment time!

Please note that the link below is NOT FOR EVERYBODY. Only download and apply it if you are ready to volunteer to test a potentially unstable BETA VERSION of the game. We believe it's bringing fixes for a few problems discovered in 1.4.1, but so far not enough internal testing was done to make sure it's stable enough - this very build is intended to be this test. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

- ETS2 BETA patch 1.4.1 to 1.4.3 torrent download only -

We are making it accessible only in the form of a torrent, sorry. We do not plan for this beta patch to be mirrored by any 3rd party servers, as we are afraid of seeing our own download servers melt if too many people were downloading the exe file straight away. It may be a bit of a hurdle, but advanced computer users can deal with it, and perhaps it's in fact better to have this little barrier of entry in place. In the future, if today's experiment proves useful, we need to figure out a smoother and more convenient way for you to access the daily builds, but for today, this must suffice.

For reporting problems, the most useful way would be to visit SCS Message Board, there is a new Forum created just for this problem Bugs 1.4.3.

Keep in mind that this is not a beta completely open to anybody. It's only going to work with a genuine and valid Product Key. Also, do not try to apply it to the Steam edition of the game. Steam users will soon get access to such experimental daily builds too though, using the system of Steam beta branches.

Thanks!

  4. Hi there.
    Don't know if you noticed, but there is a bug with a mirror above the right window only on MAN TGX, on other trucks there is no such problem.
    I have posted about this problem on scs forum. So far didn't found other bugs, but if I do, I'll let you know.
    Keep up the good work.
    Cheers ;)

  5. Just my opinion, but :

    I don't like this kind of thing, sounds like an abuse to use volunteer work in a commercial and closed source project.

    You gave the example of Mozilla, but they give back the code to the community, and in the case of ETS the community gets nothing*, because all the knowledge is keep in your hands and we also need to pay for the game.

    *of course that with this, the patch's can arrive sooner, but that is far from being a equivalent retribution for the community effort imho.

    1. World of Warcraft got PTR and sends BETA-invitations to ones who applied for them before releasing a major update (aka addon), Elder Scrolls Online seems to be going the same way so far. So it's quite a known way of involving community into testing, there are lots of people interested in this themselves.

    2. no one is forcing you to upgrade to public beta's.
      you can just sit back and relax, wait for the official stable patch and you should be fine.
      not to mention that YOU DON'T PAY FOR THE BETA!
      stop bickering, please.

    4. Yes, volunteer work is used even in some sport events, like the Olympics, and the soccer world cup, but I don't like it.

      ohaha: You don't pay for the beta (obviously), but pay for the game.

      As I said, just my opinion.

  7. Dear friends:
    I installed the 1.4.1 update, and also installed the program zero.
    In both cases, There is a hum in the cabin, the driver, which resembles a giant fly.
    Can anyone tell me, that it is?
    It's terribly, very uncomfortable.
    Not the retarder. Not the Brake Motor. Clarified.

    Thank you very much.

    1. I think you're talking about the warning sound that happens when you drive off the road. When either side of your trucks wheels (not sure if it works with the trailer) touches the safety lane line you'll hear that humming noise.
      I have to admit it is annoying but it makes you try to avoid it more :)

    4. The rumbloe doesn't necessarily mean you're a bad driver. Last night I was doing a couple of quick jobs - both in Majestic trucks - and there was a terrible rumble noice in both cases. So. First I thought I had hit the stripes by accident, but no. Driving in a true straight line in the middle of the motorway lane the noice was still very present and annoying. I ended up switching off the sound - only to switch it back on when I returned to my trusty 750bhp Volvo

  11. great idea! I downloaded it!
    One thing: I`m just wondering what happened to your Hi Way- Soundrecordings?! I expected them to be with the new truck model, that is indeed very, very well done! I really like it!
    I personally just need an original MAN- Sound (`cause no modder of the world can make a good sound out of youtube videos ;) )
    And to everybody complaining `bout the costs: ETS 2 is really cheap in my opinion! The Train Simulator for example is about 43 € just base game, with all DLC`s you could pay I think almost 1000€! So please buy this great game! It`s a big world for the bit of money ;)

    Keep up the great work and the best simulator the world has ever seen, SCS! I`ll buy all your DLC`s, that`s for sure!

  13. The problem with sharing this with the public is you will have people install the update without first reading the information and think that its a non beta.

    1. Maybe it would have been a good idea to open applications for people to become beta testers and the new beta testers could have been brought on for a trial period , then those who joined the beta test just to play the latest build without giving bug reports could be kicked out of the beta testers and have someone replace them. Honestly ETS2 is huge so you need as many testers as possible but having it available to everybody is not a good idea.

  21. Honestly, I don't think that this will work.
    We all know that most of the people that play your game and most of the people that come here to this blog (mostly to complain) are immature.
    I really do think that you need to educate your future beta-testers about what a beta is all about and that it's meant to have flaws, errors and bugs in it. (So you won't get the bitching and complaining you usually do)

    They probably don't understand the entire concept of a public beta version and thus will complain and bitch about everything that doesn't work if you just say: ''Here's the beta patch, have fun.''


    Other than that, I feel betrayed by the company, I have paid money to buy your game that I thought was completed.
    But it turns out that you haven't made a complete game and there's still a lot that you need to fix and work on.
    That's fine, that can happen, most of the gaming companies release patches, sure.
    But I think that saying: ''We need your help improving this game, because it isn't complete yet'' is a bit weird.

    I've got the feeling right now that I've paid money for some weird beta-experiment and not a full game as you have promised us.

    I however will not bitch or complain about that, it's just a point of critism from me, I like the game a lot, but this new beta-patching idea is a bit below the quality level I expect from a full game.

    1. Obviously you don't know too much about software development. I've been writing software for more than 35 years, and in short - software always contains bugs. No matter how much you test.

      Also testing is an extremely time consuming activity if done right. One tester finds one small bug. Then the programmer does a software change or the artist does a change to whatever map/prefab needs it, and a new build is done. Now the tester has to start right from the beginning again. Not just continue where she left off when reporting the bug.

      You will never get a 100% bug free game. Or accounting system. Or banking system. Or insurance system. Or any other system. No matter how much money you pay for it.

      You paid for ETS2 original version. You can play that. Then you've received - for free - several patches - to improve upon the original version.

      So you have absolutely nothing to criticise about.

      Try playing World Of Warcraft. You pay lots for the game. You play lots every month so you can actually use the game you have already paid for. You get a game so full of bugs you wouldn't believe it. And you get the 'right' to help Blizzard to test new expansions if you download a copy (about 20 gigabytes) of the test software.

      I welcome the idea of beta testers that SCS is coming up with. But as you have pointed out, it's not for everybody to be a beta tester.

      SCS. You will have to make it possible to have both the 'real game' as well as a beta version of the game installed on the same machine for the same user. Otherwise you will get a lot of complaints from people messing up their game or profile(s). Personally I would just keep the original install file together with official patch files and then make sure I back up my profiles before installing any beta patch. That way I can always get back to the working version if the beta is dud.

      Delete
    2. Oops. Small 'bug' in the comment about World of Warcraft. It reads 'you play lots every month' and it's supposed to be 'you PAY lots every month'

      See. Bugs always appear where they do the most harm :)

      Delete
    3. I said: ''But it turns out that you haven't made a complete game and there's still a lot that you need to fix and work on.
      That's fine, that can happen, most of the gaming companies release patches, sure.
      But I think that saying: ''We need your help improving this game, because it isn't complete yet'' is a bit weird.''

      I said that there are bugs and errors and I said that that's fine (not in a direct way) because most-if-not-all programs have flaws and glitches.

      And let's be honest no, the game without the patches absolutly sucks, I think that this last patch did a great job fixing a lot of stuff and I'm also glad that SCS took a lot of suggestions/complaints from it's fans serious.

      I am well-aware about game development (not as many experice that you claim to have) and that if you fix something, something else could break, but this last patch -even though it fixed a lot of stuff- has a lot of big bugs/glitches/errors in it. So much small things that are so absolutly obvious that I start to doubt that -and I'll qoute you-
      ''Also testing is an extremely time consuming activity if done right. One tester finds one small bug. Then the programmer does a software change or the artist does a change to whatever map/prefab needs it, and a new build is done. Now the tester has to start right from the beginning again. Not just continue where she left off when reporting the bug.''
      has been done properly.

      And because it hasn't been done properly, SCS now asks our help. But then there's the point where we both agree on and that is that not every imbecil can download and test the patch (I think most of them won't even report a single bug...)

      But yeah, you're right, I may have overexegarated my point where I said that I paid for the full game that isn't completed.

      And after saying all of this, I think I should start a new carreer in politics........

    4. Imho it's ok that SCS is trying to improve ETS2 more and more.
      GRID2 for example is a "complete" game but it has bugs in 3D models. Take a look for example at Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution 2 and BMW M3 E30 Sport Evolution. 190E has glass sunroof when, real car has metal one!. Model also has other screwed up details. What with M3 Sport Evo? Wrong seats. Sport EVO has other in real life, than other M3s.
      Now you think that they gonna fix it? Nope.
      SCS compared to them, is fixing models and other things that other developers will ignore.

      greetings D.J.

    5. For the kind of systems I work on a lot of the testing is done by automated tools. E.g. when doing banking transactions, you know what the results are supposed to be, so you set a test tool to run a set of transactions through the system. Then the test tool compares the results to the expected results and report whatever differences occur.

      When it comes to testing a game like ETS2, the majority of the test has to do with checking the graphical results. And this is not easy to do with a test tool. It is done by people viewing the resultting screen. Imagine how much time you would have to spend viewing every little bit of graphic for ETS2. How long do you think it would take you?

      No way is it possible for any one person in a reasonable time. It does not mean that the game is incomplete in any way if for example some piece of grass is a different color or if a tree is floating or suspended in water. You, as a user, will find it unfortunate or even annoying, but you can still play the game. On the other hand if you want the SCS team to test every bit of the the graphics, you would have to pay so much for the resulting game, that you'd probably not buy it. So asking the users to help with reporting bugs is absolutely a viable way to go.

      Anyway. None of us would ever make it as politicians. We are being much too civil to oneanother :)

      Delete
    6. You are right, I absolutly agree with you.

      This was a nice discussion actually, can't believe that this occured on the official SCS blog.

      (And besides that, we've done more already than an average politician would in an entire year :P)

      Delete
  22. Maybe you are looking at it from wrong point of view.

    I think, that you bought full game already. Yes, it had some issues but there were all things that made the game fun and enjoyable (much more than most other current games).

    But authors are working further of course. They are tuning their simulation engine, improving maps, models, algorithms or just simply working on their knowledge base. All this for future projects. But instead of years of secret work and then release of other game, they show and even give you pieces of improvement in form of the addons to old game. They gave it to you in exchange for some feedback to speed up their work.

    Nice, isn't it?

    1. This was proabably a reponse to my comment, wasn't it?
      Anyway, I'm not really saying ''OMG YOUZ SOLD ME UNFINISIHSD GAME!!!''

      I'm just saying that, even though the game is great as it is, that SCS should consider to put some more quality in their work (some things in the last patch could've been tested and prevented) other than asking the community to help because they've f-d up.

      It's like saying: ''Yeah, here's your new car, it doesn't work but well tune the engine a little and then just leave, if it still doesn't work we'll come back to fix it'' even though they could've just stayed to actually test the engine.

      And after the last patch I really wonder how the current beta testers are working, because they're obviously blind....

      But yeah, sure, we're helping them, they're helping us.

  23. SCS please bring back my 'ka-ching' sound when my drivers make me richer.

    At least make it optional to have the sound or not.

    I really miss it.

    When doing something where you need to concentrate, you don't always see the scrolling text in the bottom right corner.

    Btw. There is also some speed issues regarding the text. Sometimes it scrolls very fast if the driver also got 'upgraded' by making the delivery. And when you wake up after a good night's rest, you get a lot of mesages related to all your busy drivers, but the last message of them all is scrolling very, very slowly.

    But primarily : please bring back my 'ka-ching' sound :)

    1. Good for you. But you are not the only person playing ETS2. Different people do different things within the game. And they see different things. For example somebody is complaining about an indicator arm not moving when activating the indicators. Personally I couldn't bother less as moving indicator arms are not important to me when I play ETS2. But that doesn't leave it a moot complaint. Obviously it is important to the person making that complaint in the first place.

      Basically if you have not noticed any bugs, don't start downloading beta patches as you won't really know what to test in them. You may not even want to download any official patches either, as you may have no interest in whatever they contain.

      When I first started playing ETS2, I was not aware that there were several patches available. So I played the game and enjoyed it. Then by chance I found out that patches existed and upgraded to 1.3.1. Much to my surprise I now didn't own any Valiants or Davs but Volvos and Dafs. Then I enjoyed playing even more.

      What made you download the upgrade to 1.4.1 in the first place? Something fix you were interested in? Curiosity? Just because it was a patch?

      The beta patches are not for general downloads as it is being said. They are for people willing to help SCS testing fixes. So apparently there is no point for you in downloading them. Maybe some day you will be able to download an official patch with new trucks, new cities, or new map areas that will also work flawlessly for you. Because other people bothered downloading beta patches and doing test work.

      Happy gaming

  33. I don't really see what's wrong with them doing this. Do I feel like I bought an unfinished game? no. SCS have said from the start they're going to continue to develop ETS2, that can only be a good thing for all of us, how are you even complaining? The game is already quite different to the one I originally bought. The changes which seem to be coming up would be in ETS3 under most other game companies. Even in version 1.1 it was still simply the best sim of its type by a very long way. Most other driving sims are either so awful they're actually hilarious. Garbage truck simulator springs to mind with that one. Or so convoluted, complex, unrefined, and awfully inefficient in the way they use your computers resources, that they're actually really annoying, and can be pretty unplayable. OMSI leaps to mind there. This is the first driving sim, i've played that I've genuinely enjoyed. I used to snigger and laugh at these sims. Not because of the concept, but because the people who made them were so untalented, and clearly unable to make a game like this work. The word "simulator" in the title meant this is going to be so bad, it's going to be funny. I've always had a little secret interest, and perhaps even deep curiosity for these simulators, and perhaps a secret desire to drive a large death machine for real, and far more often then not been very disappointed by what I've seen. Then ETS2 comes along. I actually watched the nerd cubed road trip video on you tube, and it really got me interested in the game. But I approached it with the usual caution because of past experience of these types of games, and decided it's best to torrent it, because I'll probably be deleting it within the hour anyway. It was incredibly easy to get working and set up properly on my aging pc, and my xbox 360 controller, none of that overly convoluted, broken crap that a lot of these games have, The next thing I know 6pm is now 6am, I've just spent 12 straight hours driving a DAF XF around Europe and building an empire, of hairy sweaty truckers, the likes of which, the world has never seen! The next...well afternoon since I ended up sleeping in late, I was straight on Amazon and ordered a real copy of the game. Then I hear they're continuing to develop and improve, what is already a fantastic, and compared to its rivals incredibly realistic experience. What is their to complain about that? Yeah it's not perfect, but, it's still easily the best of its type. At least the team behind it have some talent, and passion for what they're doing. I hope you continue to work on the game play aspects, and follow peoples advise about multi drop off points, more challenging roads, and better economy, and business mechanics, would in time make this a exceptional, they just need to make the gameplay deeper, and more involved now.

    1. I agree with you 110%, the fact that people are still complaining is blowing my mind, this amazing company is doing everything for their fans of this amazing simulator they have created, they got way more sales it seems then they could have hoped for. I have spent 200 hours in this game easily, I bought it the same day it was released. The new patch made the game run twice as smooth, has only crashed one time since 1.4.1 came out. Any game that are being updated and having continued development, as heavy as this is, will get more bugs, and have more issues along the way, that goes for ANY program, be it a game, or a Power Client... doesnt matter, no company makes perfect programs right off the bat and never run in to a bug, has never happened, look at the GTA games, everyone loves the GTA series, but those games is some of the buggies pieces of software ever made. Anyone remember cars coming at you on the roads backwards with the nose pointing down in to the ground? Or planes randomly parked under a carport? Seem there are some people in this community who got their first computer yesterday an old modem and goes on here talking shit when they barely know how to start the damn computer on their own desk, and for sure have NO clue about developing software of any kind. I'm no programmer or anything like that, I'm just a nerd dreaming of driving a truck one day... but I've been around computers for almost 25 years now... and have never seen a bugfree game. ETS2 is one of the best releases I've ever seen, not because it was perfect, hell, it was sluggish and demanding as hell pre 1.3.1 and 1.4.1, even on my monster machine, or well, its pretty fast anyway... now it runs smooth as butter at max settings for me, I used to have 10 fps if I ran max settings, dont know what I had now but it feels smooth so it must be around 30 - 40 fps. I'll end my rant here.. sad that I have to feel angry every time I read the posts here, so many disrespectful and ungreatful people... :( SCS, you guys rock! Have no other words for it, just ROCK!

  35. SCS, I've found a problem,

    I was behind a truck (with trailer) that was just approaching a train crossing. I accidentally bumped into the back of it. When I moved away to let it go, it continued on straight over the crossing, which at the time was closed and a train was passing. Basically, what I saw was a truck driving through a gate and train with no effects/crash whatsoever.

    Just thought I'd let you know. If you want me to be more specific (if it helps), it was a train crossing just above a petrol station on the map (the secondary road heading vertically between the M5 and A483, with the petrol station being almost horizontally level with Birmingham). Thanks.

  36. if SCS wants lots of feedback I think IT would be better to have a standard reply form so that users could give all the details of their systems as well as detailed explanation of the bug, 'xxxxx don't work' isn't the sort of feedback SCS needs but that's what their gonna get

  38. I recently downloaded 1.4.1 and went driving, after some kilometres, my trailer disappeared, just gone. There was no more directions on my GPS and it said i have no delivery on F6. I have no mods installed so i know that it's not mod bug. I also discovered that trailer disappears always at same locations.
    I can't finsih any deliveries because of that. Please, fix it.

  47. o som do freio dos caminhão para quem usa volante e pedais está muito ruim, o som do freio tem que ser ouvido depois de tirar o pé do freio, e não quando você está pisando no freio.e quando você quer apenas diminuir a velocidade do caminhão, para você poder ouvir o som do freio ,tem que pisar fundo no pedal para que o som do freio seja acionado ! tenho certeza de que todos estamos acostumados a ouvir o som do freio do caminhão, e está horrível dirigir sem o som do freio em perfeitas condições!! peço a scs que corrija esse erro o mais rápido possível por favor!!! obrigado.

  48. the sound of the brakes of the truck for those who use wheel and pedals is very bad, the sound of the brake has to be heard after you take your foot off the brake, and not when you are treading on freio.e when you just want to slow down truck, so you can hear the sound of the brake, have to step on the pedal for the brake sound is triggered! I'm sure we're all used to hearing the sound of truck brake, and is horrible driving without brake sound in perfect condition! ask scs to correct this error ASAP please! Thank you.

  51. I had no issues with 1.3.1 or whatever the previous version was. Is it possible for me to go back to that somehow until a less bug riddled version is released

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you want to go back to 1.3.1, you'll have to remove the game. Then reinstall your original game and also reinstall patch 1.3.1. You should be able to find your old 1.3.1 profiles saved in your 'documents' library under ets2. There should be a backup of your profiles in the 'profiles(1.3.1).bak' library.

      Always do a complete backup yourself before installing any patch. Just to be on the safe side.

      Personally I do a backup of both game folder and documents-folder before installing.

      Happy gaming.

    1. I have absolutely no problems with my G27. Are you sure you have done the settings correctly? In the Logitech setup, you have to tell it that the game can change settings. And then in game you have to do all the new settings to your liking.

      Delete
    2. Yes i'm sure, I haven't changed them since the update. I lose all feedback as soon as the game loaded after i clicked continue.

    2. What you say in your reply is correct as for the first press turning on power and the second press turn on the engine. But the way you say it??? How about being a bit civil and nice?
      Iuchian doesn't ask the question because he's either dumb or a moron. But because he doesn't know the answer. And you shoud stop shouting. It's considered really bad practice to use all uppercase.

  63. There will be (soon) an ETS 3 game ?

    Untill how ETS 2 will be patched, what patch number (x.x.x) ?

    You will cover all Europe (more or less) before release ETS 3 game ?

    About multiplayer: there's a so far possible comunity patch to play ETS 2 on multiplayer, but not supported by yours. Will be this a native option in ETS 3 ?

    About ETS 3: do you think to release it on a next-gen console (Xbox One and PS4) ?

    Sorry for this answers, but i'm so curious (and i don't work for a magazine or other).

    2. Maybe you should get your facts straight before you post a reply here Anonymous July 14, 2013 at 78:28 PM.

      This is a bug that has been reported earlier by several people.

      And there is no 'protection triggers' in ETS2. It is freely downloadable for free trials with limited functionality.

      If you want the full functionality, obviously you must buy the game.

      Anyway. Why do you suggest that the person saying that his trailers disappear is a pirate? Just because he has experienced something you haven't seen in the game?

      Happy gaming

    3. It's too easy to blame someone huh?

      I bought it a week ago. And I am having this problem.

      Is it only me who bought the game and trailers randomly disappears? I don't think so.

      And thanks "AnonymousJuly 14, 2013 at 8:46 PM" for further explanation.

    1. Absolutely correct.

      And actually we're up to patch 1.4.5 now.

      So not much point posting bug report regarding any earlier version of the game.

    1. If you have installed the beta-patch 1.4.3, you can go to forum.scssoft.com. Then go to ETS2, bugs, bugs 1.4.4. There you will find a post from Pavel from SCS that will let you download patches 1.4.4 and 1.4.5.

      Install both patches one by one.

      Then you will have a much more stable version.

      But remember, they are still beta-test patches.

    2. I use G27 with the game. You have to set the Logitech profile to be able to be changed by the game. You also have to set the Logitech profile which buttons on Wheel/gear stick have to do what in the game. Then in game, you go to settings and set force feed, gearbox, clutch, brake, accellerator as you want them. Also you can set the strength of the braking in Game settings.

      Happy gaming
