    Tez ADI , DTG doesn't know how to do proper updates. You basically have to re-download the the whole game every time there's an "update". It was the same with Euro fishing and will be the same with this game.

    SPACE ODDITY , have you tested if achievements works now ? Do we have to redo them or do they unlock immediately the ones you already met the criteria ? I won't be able to do the update till much later so am not able to check that out now.

    No achievements for me & the game just crashes if I try to change my equipment via the customize tab on the home screen.

    From an initial look there is additional content which is appreciated..

    In the anglers log section, the Rudd’s and roachs are now the same, i thought Rudd’s had slightly upturned facial features.... they used to in game play at least and for the picture afterwards.

    At least the screen now says ive caught all the types on the lakes ive caught them, rather than failing to recognise what species ive caught previous. Looking forward to seeing if theres any improvements / troubles over the next few hours

    Think i'm done with this game which is a shame.Just tried a single player Bass Tourney & the AI are catching all the time yet I had not one single take in 20 minutes.
    Still no achievements,game crashing & no doubt other stuff that's probably broken just seems like one step forward 3 steps back.
    Good job Red Dead Redemption 2 has fishing in it.

    Oh no this doesn't sound good. If this is the way things go I will be uninstalling. I have had about as much of DTG's incompetence as I can take. I'm at work so can't do and check the update yet , but feedback like this just makes me wonder if I should even bother with installing the update.

    Achievements didn't unlock for me, hundreds of hours wasted and now looks like you have to redo everything again. They have adjusted the bite rates which I really like, hooks and baits do feel like they matter a little more now, but saying that this is going to make it a lot longer to redo everything we have just lost (Achievement wise).

    After losing hundreds of hours spent meeting requirements for just about every achievement apart from two on the game, I don't think I wish to invest my time towards any achievements relating to Dovetail games until I have seen other people have been unlocking them.

    I would like to see an explanation on why we have to redo everything for our achievements from Dovetail.

    Some quick feedback (from the carp side of things) - will no doubt be more. Some good positivity coming our way, just need some more lol

    I have some found improvements i like.. having the ability to have / not have the hud is a good thing, more realistic... although seeing where you have cast is tricky (would always be on a small screen)

    An option that would be good is if we could have a discreet momentary pop up confirming changes (eg drag changes). Yes the controller vibrates differently for reel speed, but if you cant see the line, how do you know if its taught and productively bringing the fish in, or if you over exert the line?

    Also, why do we need a 1 to 5 reel in speed setting if we have the pressure sensitive trigger buttons on our controllers.

    I like the fact that close up whilst tacking the fish the camera pans wider so you can see what you are doing... that used to annoy me something chronic...

    I still dont like the eternity it takes to change rods to avoid loosing catches though, its as though the controller isnt responding - very frustrating.

    Another weird one for me is night fishing in the canal with day blue sky.... it never used to be black and unseeable, but daylight in the dark? Must have been an oversight surely or a glitch.

    The dovetail T-shirt’s and boats i cant see, but i can see some flourescent sweet corn yay!! And the addition of hook sizes and types are welcomed to

    One more puzzling one... previously you couldnt land the fishing until it was spent (no net catch as on previous).. why can i now catch fish and they lie dead and still put a struggle up to land... some dont even fight... oh my god I’m killing computer fish..... :-(

    New menus

    I wish the line depth would of stayed for the no bite icons. can't tell how deep my lure is in the water. The bite indicator was the only issue for me. However I did play the game without the hud completely.. one thing I can say. You need a controller that vibrates.. you don't have one. You won't know that you have a fish. This mode where the sound of the tension from the reel be more necessary. Cause the PC users won't be able to use this type of method cause no vibration = no fish for them.

    Also the vibration for the ps4 had intensified. makes you want to shut it off completely. Should only feel the vibration only up until a fish bites. Then it can continue to vibrate.

    Also I believe the achievements that were in the game were lost cause the game don't really know if we actually achieved that achievement. This problem wouldn't be a serious issue for me cause no we can earn the achievement like we supposed too. Perhaps a compensation for redoing the achievements maybe small rewards like extra money towards gear. This would be a nice welcoming.

    Why do we need all none or part?
    Why cant we have a drop down menu like they have already that say each thing and we opt in/out as we like, as clearly they will never make everyone happy...

    **sigh** The worst part is , how do we even know if the achievements even will unlock if we redo it ???? No guarantee that it will even work now. Now we go and spend a lot of hours again and it might still not unlock. How do we even know that it is in fact fixed and even worth it to redo it all again ? What DTG says is useless so I am definitely not taking their word for it that it is fixed now.

    Exactly buddy.

    I think I will spend today working towards earning the achievement for catching 250 fish. If it doesn't unlock bang on 250 fish, then that maybe me done.

    You can remove just the bite indicator or the entire hud.

    Here’s the new dlc lake as u can see by the picture don’t think it’s out yet but it’s not the point they should be taking there time to address all the bugs and issues first before realising a new lake

    I cant see anything re this on the xbox side of things.... I’m assuming the new lakes will be chargeable or earnable through gameplay though - hopefully soon- hopefully free of charge!! :)

    the update was announced beginning of October and it's 18 days in. I think the updates came pretty fast. But one part bugs me now. There's no depth shown for the no bite icon.

    Yeah no surprise there. Anyone familiar with DTG knows they will pump out DLC all the time.

    I had the pleasure of experiencing a proper developer doing and releasing 4 major bug fixes in 24 hours. Average for that developer was 3 major bug fix updates per week during times when there were plenty bugs in their product. THAT is how quickly serious bugs should be addressed and how proper developers does it who cares about their community and product. With the major bugs this game has and so many things broken we should have had at least 3 updates by now.

    If you noticed that many many people wanted more lakes for the game.. as I can see that this might be another American lake. There pushing to fix the bugs as I see it.. Give the devs a break. This company probably only has a few workers that does the modeling and texturing. It's not a easy job to do. I should I know. I do 3d modeling myself. It takes time. Right now the only problem I see what others are complaining about is the achievements and really there's no real reward for getting these achievements. The the fact that the missing depth of your lure is gone. Probably these can be fixed in a quick amount of time. The point I see that there trying and I hope there with be more updates for the game as the game is done very well. Could use better sounds for th splashing of the fish and better animation for bigger fish. I'm sure though that they will get to it. Only thing I see is that others are complaining even after the update. I know that DLC's are early but I will get it. More the better.. Hope new species to these lakes as well.

    Did it unlock bud ? Or you not past 250 yet ? I got mine for the " Loose 25 fish " last night. ( I was letting lots of carp get off during a match tourney ) so that one
    I can confirm is working now.

    The problem is not the adding of new lakes , the problem is the price tag of that new lakes. That is what all Euro veterans will be worried about , the price and if we are going to get screwed over again like with Euro where season pass owners only got half of the DLC lakes. Those are the type of issues the veterans are worried about when it comes to DTG and DLC.

    Oh yeah.. I know how much there DLC's are.. I see it on euro fishing. I never bough it seeing that some of there DLC's are just as much as the game itself. I mean I can see if it's what $10.. then I see it be a fair price but to charge $20 or $30 is just too much. So I am eager to see what this new lake will cost but it's cost half what I spent for the game itself then I'm not buying it..

    The achievements are working got a few doing online tourneys and the walleye and blue gill are nice love the fixes and minimal hud for screenshots and recordings.. still catching tons of carp though but noticed a lot more perch bites off fluro maggots and imitation prawns.... night fishing be nice to see nocturnal fish species be more active and bite better ie walleye and catfish... all in all great update... tackle finally feels like its working ie hook size and line strength.

    think the online match series would be better if carp never counted and was total weigh instead of numbers

    That's would be the carp championship that counts as weight and how many fish you caught. Match series is how many fish you can get total before time runs out and mean any fish counts regardless if it's carp,catfish or any other European fish.

    Let us know how you get on with this.

    Have you completed the requirements for these achievements since update went out?

    Money is earned through the Dovetail Fishing League events. It shows how well you have done throughout the live tournaments.

    Can you contact our customer support team at https://dovetailgames.kayako.com.

    Which platform are you playing on?

    So far I have unlocked 7 achievements and can confirm they unlocked bang on when they was supposed to, well done Dovetail on fixing them. I just wish I didn't have to redo all the requirements again, but at the end of the day they can now be unlocked and that's what matters.

    Yes I can confirm also but my only issue is the Brand Junkie Achievement for buying 100 items as I had already bought most of the stuff before achievements was fixed I only have boat wraps left to buy now so I don't think I will be able to unlock it :(
