@BlueMonk ok that's reassuring. I'm veryyyy slowly gaining momentum. How you described it is pretty much how I've felt, running through syrup. I've made it a priority to gain safe zones where I could to make it easier traversing through day only for the time being. I still can't find enough loot to Craft a solid weapon though.

I guess my two gripes I have most with the game, are most of the map seems samey for the most part, and it would he great to use anything you'd like or find as a weapon instead. There's so many things they could've put into the game to use as you're walking through the world. I did find 2 or 3 items throughout my playthrough; but I would've liked to find a little more.

Open chest and police van(when thelockpick bug is off ) you can find free respaw lockpick in a quarantine zone stuffled turtle a supermarket in the nord west of the tower in the first room after you switch off the eletric current there are 3 of them and they respaw each time you enter the market same for 3 Drops just grab them and leave, no zombie fight in the first room i got a lot of them in just two hour of grinding and i am already level 12 on the survival tree( grappling hook is so fun!

Based off the reviews my expectations as far as visuals and performance were on the low side. Either the early patch really improved things or the critics were conservative. In handheld mode it’s very impressive and after I adapted, it feels smooth; so far.

techaland answer to my ticket about the lockpick bug:

Dear XXXXX.,

It is likely the motion controls are turned on and they may be blocking it. As this mechanic does not have a tutorial, it can also be somewhat puzzling to new players that you have to tilt the lock to the left so that it does not jam, because when you turn to the right, it blocks.

You can also reconfigure your joycons in the Switch settings, which can help. Switch Main Menu -> System Settings -> Controllers and Sensors -> Calibrate Motion Controls. And there, you can recalibrate consoles and controllers. You can do both.

Additionally, you can also update your controllers in this menu.

It should also be noted that there is no vibration on Switch Lite, so if you have this version of the console, you the lockpicking mechanic can be quite confusing, indeed.

Best Regards

I don't think the really understood the problem beside I only play handheld and I only use the gyro but I will try the solution they gave me to recalibrate the joycons plus I will try to deactivate the motion control in the menu for a second when the problem appears to see if will fix it

Ya, it looks good in handheld. Plays well. I’m definitely happy with the quality of this release.

Just wanted to say my Dying Light cartridge came in yesterday and I popped it in last night for what I thought would be the obligatory patch download and maybe a few minutes of gaming before shower and bedtime, but it kept me playing till after 1am! I had to shower in the AM.

Very impressed with the magic they worked to put this game on Switch!
Now I've got another great game to juggle somehow (with Darkest Dungeon, Metroid Dread, ACNH, Creature in the Well, Cruisn Blast... oy vey)

It works! If you have the lockpick bug just turn off the motion controls for the time to do the mini game and turn it on after, it solve the problem for me and it took a while to reappear again

@aresius Thanks for the tip. At least there's a workaround until it's patched.

@Teksetter Same here, I got it yesterday too. It's quite an impresive port and I'm still surprised about that. It's probably the third party game that I wanted the most on Switch as the game is a blast.

They should have separate motion control and gyro in the menu so we could keep the first one off

Patch out better resolution in handheld, fix to the framepace, better gyro for aiming(but no fix for the lockpick) and other fixes

Checked the game out post patch (that was fast- wow!).

Handheld mode looks better, Framerate is now locked. They killed it. They absolutely killed it.

So now whenever I get the lock pick issue, I just tilt the controller until it goes away. I can live with that but I would rather have the option to turn motion off for lock picking. It's a great game.

I haven't had any issues at all picking locks. Is the bug something psecific?

By the way, this game is awesome. Can't wait to unlock more of the agility tree - although that grapple hook looks like a gamebreaker

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

I have a lot of respect for this game, it’s really good. I’m just not having a lot of fun. My biggest gripe is not being able to save my game anyplace. It feels like they just did this so there’s a punitive death system.

I think many probably like this system, but I’m just finding it tedious. It feels like the game just takes itself too seriously for my tastes. If I could save anyplace it’d make a big difference. As it is, I doubt I’ll get much more out of this. Not a good buy for 50$ for me.

@BlueMonk
the game has an auto save system will save your progress(and your items) in the game every time you: trigger a download like enter a quarantine zone, pick a collectable, enter a safe zone. Now if you mean the respawn system when you died or load a save file that depend the quest you are tracking in the menu, for example if you are following the quest stuffled turtle(a quarantine zone) you will always respawn near by , so by change what quest you are following will influence your respawns , you can even use this as a form or fast travel if you want by leaving the game and reloading a save
if you have other issue maybe I can help you with some tips , for example combat starts very plain but as soon you unlock some skills it become much deeper compared to the start(I can dropkick zombie, smash the head when they are on the ground , using camouflage to get out of sticky situation(virals incoming) ec..

it solved, i played yesterday with motion on never happened again, anyway the game is a so worthy, I had a blast with a hard quarantine zone yesterday, some exploding zombie (witch did not appear yet in the main map because I am still within the first quest assignment ) they killed me like 4 times from behind, and infinite respawn of viral(the fast zombie)I had so trouble to stay alive and kills these piecies of ***** (they are so fast to reach you, but to attack as well and are able to dodge your attacks as well!!) while I was looking for the drops, I only manage to get 4/5 and get out of there, used a lot of supplies(firecracker and molotov) and I consume the special machete placed from the developer as ester egg (565 damage) and i died in total 7-8 time loosing a lot of survivor points buttt it was so much fun a lot of adrenaline, at a certain point with fews HP and no way to use a med kit on time I had two virals running at me, i throw my machete at one killing on the first shot on his shoulder and I kick the second one gains few sec to smash an electric guitar on his face , ahhh so fun , I think, I will not play nothing else for a pair of months

you can find this blueprint in the north-west on the top of a difficulty apartment building to climb(and you have to kick with the prompt bottom the blue box 50 time to make it opens, it cost only 10 alcohol and a 1 metal gear to create it, but it cannot be repaired is called korek machete and it was added by one of the developer to easy the beginner of the game , I got it for collection and never used until I tried this quarantine zone kk

but just to let you know ester egg blueprint works only in normal and hard mode, not nightmare and even with this weapons night special enemies are still to much
