    We are committed to improving Dovetail Games Euro Fishing and will be doing a patch update in mid-July and then again in August to improve your Fishing experience.

    The first patch to be released mid to late July will consist of:

    • Several new boss fish over the 5 lakes including a 150lb Cat fish (more details of these fish will be released over the next few weeks)
    • Force feedback/vibration on the Xbox controller when playing a fish.
    • The option to invert Y axis on the Xbox controller.
    • An extended hold of the B button to close down your peg with when fishing. This will stop accidental peg closing.
    • The option to “Abort a cast” for when you get a run on another rod when casting.
    • Several bug fixes (a list will be published ASAP when we have tested these fixes)

    Details of the August update will follow soon.

    Kind regards
    DTG Euro Fishing Team

    Great news because when i enter a tournament and start to load the lake it freezes and goes back to my xbox dashboard and also i lose 3 mins and when i top water fish it comes close to me and i get a great strike it breaks my line automatically and it makes me lose points and fish and the game has alot of glitches and needs to be fixed

    That's great news just one more thing I think that needs to be fixed is the host of a multiplayer lobby is not able to keep fish on the line while fighting another fish very troublesome when playing with friends no one wants to be the host thanks

    I agree.. in fact hosting a multiplayer has a few problems that needs ironing out.

    -

    Yeah I've had it do both to me as well. I started the desert wieght tournament and every time it kicked me out when I started to pick my fast travel point for the lake. The really bad thing about it was it started the timer on me and by the time I got the game started back up 5 to 6 mins have passed. So I've lost 20 to 25min of fishing the first 4 rnds. Gunna go ahead and finish the last round and maybe I'll get a top 50.
    Maybe something can be done to where the timer doesn't start until you cast into the water. Bait hits the water then timer starts that way until a major fix can come this would atleast stop ppl from getting docked on time. Ty DTG for listening, together we all improve and make this game better as we go.

    Yeah it does. Seems the DTG ppl have been real responsive on feedback, so hopefully it's addressed or I'll lose future
    interest.

    Have you already caught Pink Belly? I think he is the second largest cat in the game. You cant miss him he will wave at you while he is checking out your bait lol.

    Am hopeful you will sort out the time of the weekday live tournaments. . . . web page states 3 one hour sessions, but game runs 5 one hour sessions . . . this is for me
    (with work) too long to take part in. . . which is real shame as is best element of game . . . is noticeable that there are many less people entering these tournaments (compared to the shorter ones), am sure its due to them being too long. . . muchly enjoying the game otherwise (aside from the glitches that have mostly been mentioned). Keep it coming :)

    I agree with you completely. 5 hours on a tournament on weekdays is a little much. I think 2 hours is enough for a weekday. They should save the 5 hour tournaments for the weekends.

    Yep 5hr weekend ones makes sense . . . .would also be good if live tournament entry page had a bit more detail - session duration, species (not just 'unique fish') - helps with tackle choice and knowing how long i'm commiting. . . webpage details of live tournaments dont always match the actual tournament. . . .

    It's better to wait a few more days and get it right than rush it and still have some errors...I'll miss climbing a tree to land my catfish though.

    As long as the line tension bug and the fish climbing onto land bug are fixed I can wait a few extra days, hopefully they'll have fixed them, getting kind of annoying losing fish now because of them.

    Agreed waitied this long on update am sure they just want it perfect. Would rather they took the time to get it right than rush it out causing more problems.

    If I am understanding correctly, the update has been sent to Microsoft for certification. Which I think simply means Microsoft will test it to make sure it doesn't cause problems with their xbox os. If this is the case the update could happen at any time but is still depending on whether or not the update passes certification.
