Hi, sorry you are experiencing issues. Are you certain it only started after the 1.4.5 update?
If you are both playing on Steam, I have something I will ask you to try.
Everyone who is playing multiplayer together must do the following:
In Steam library, right click on Stardew Valley, and select "Properties"
Select the "Betas" tab
In the Field labeled "Enter beta access code to unlock private beta", type "testSDKupdate" (no quotes)
press "Check Code"
Select the "stats" beta from the drop down menu.
Press Close. Stardew Valley should now update, and the title in the library should have a [stats] label next to it
Then try playing as normal. Please let me know if the disconnects still happen or if there was any change to them.
That's immensely funny to me because my main was also an undead mage AND I used her name for my Stardew Valley character.
Mages are best if you focus on getting achievements what with their sweet, sweet teleport ability.
Cool! yeah, mages are great. I always played as a frost mage, through thick and thin
I was actually a WOW player for many years (undead mage), and while I don't play it anymore, I do think the game had an influence on my game development style. Many people describe Stardew Valley as "addictive" and I think some of that might come from the WOW influence.
no no no lol. F12 through Steam will only take a screenshot of what's on the screen at the moment you press it. It won't generate a picture of the whole farm. If you just want what's on screen, then sure, F12 is fine. But if you want the whole farm in your shot, you have to go through the menu for it, there is no hot key. As for F4, it's meant as a tool for screenshots with F12 by getting rid of the GUI overlay(the toolbar, and the date/time/money panel up in the top right corner).
Perhaps u/ConcernedApe could add a hotkey for taking a shot of the whole farm when/if there is another update?
Hi, there is a quicker way to do it. Press the '/' key and then type "mapscreenshot" and press enter. You can also add optional parameters to the command to set the name and the zoom level (e.g. "/mapscreenshot myfarm_1 50" would create a screenshot of the current map called "myfarm_1.png" at a 50% zoom level (Default zoom level is 25%)
I've been curious: do you have a background in any musical instruments or training? It's really amazing to me that you developed the entire game from the programming, the world building and lore, the story, and all the assets including soundtrack all on your own. That's so awesome.
My 18 month old loovvveessss the overture! She could be playing with something else but as soon as she hears the opening bars she'll stop whatever she's doing to stand in front of the TV and clap, dance, "hum" (it's just a flat "ahhhhhh" but it's obvious she's trying to hum), and/or sway to the song. She's recently started bopping her head to other tracks while giving us a big smile.
I have no musical training (besides playing percussion for a year in middle school), but I did play guitar and make electronic music starting in high school, and before that I played around a lot on a little electric keyboard I had. I never learned to read music or any music theory or anything like that. Glad to hear that your daughter loves the music haha
The 1.4 update is now available to all users on Android. iOS is still in the approval process, but should be available soon.
Also, there is a small patch out now for PC platforms (1.4.5) that solves the following issues:
mizkyu is right, I used Propellerhead Reason to make all the music. Mostly I just used whatever instruments were in the default libraries. Sometimes I'd make some synths myself too. I made a lot of the sound effects in Reason too.
The 1.4.4 patch is now available on PC, Xbox, PS4, and Switch.
This patch fixes some critical bugs on console (namely the napalm ring crash and the brick floor bug), and also makes some improvements and minor bug fixes on all platforms.
It also adds in the screenshot feature on PS4 and Switch!
