Another user on the facepunch forums and a frequent commenter here on my site had an odd glitch today with SRTT where it automatically unlocked all the DLC including upcoming ones. This glitch seems to have come up before for other players and the person reporting it on the Steam forums said that it straightened itself out the next time he restarted Steam.
The cool news is that we have confirmation and extra details:
* The Angry Tiger Kaneda has a mounted flamethrower that shoots out its mouth
* There are 2 different zombie masks; one with jigglebone green hair and one that looks like a nosferatu
* Devil Horns and Angel Halo from SR2 are confirmed returning
* There’s also a devil mask with the Horror Pack
* Witch Outfit Pic
* Hotdog Outfit Pic
* Slasher Outfit pic with torn up clothing from the zombie outfit
* Ninja Outfit Pic
The patch 4 TWC files contain some new info regarding upcoming SRTT DLC. There is no name given to it so I’ll just refer to it as the
Let’s Pretend Witches and Wieners pack: Let’s Pretend Witches and Wieners pack
* Hotdog suit (FUCK YES)
* Ninja suit (DOUBLE FUCK YES)
* Witch outfit
* Broomstick vehicle
We’re also still expecting these upcoming DLC packs that have been referenced in previous patch files:
* Gives both mission choices for all missions; for example both the apocafists and Killbane’s mask.
Gang Outfits pack
* Player outfits for Morningstar, Luchadore, and Deckers (both regular and specialists)
Penthouse Pets pack
* Gang Customization and homie options
We have a name for the new DLC! Witches and Wieners!
Lenankamp was able to find a way to enable the super powers from Trouble with Clones outside the mission!
It’s not perfect and missing some fx, but still is a really great start!
The final release of patch 4 officially hit Steam for TWC and I tested and confirmed that GoS still works properly. Everything seems to be working correctly, but please let me know if you run into any issues.
Make sure to create new patch files with GoS though since Trouble with Clones does overwrite both patch_compressed.vpp_pc and patch_uncompressed.vpp_pc.
I took a look at beta patch 4, and there doesn’t seem to be any changes that would adversely affect mods. I’ll still do a thorough examination tomorrow on release, but GoS and anything else should be just fine.
Also, Gamersgate is having a 50% off sale today on all Saints Row: The Third DLC. This includes the Season Pass for only $10 which includes Genkibowl VII, Gangstas in Space, and Trouble with Clones.
All file downloads are working again!
The finalack fileserver is going down for maintenance and upgrades on Monday night 3/12/12 8pm EST. The site itself will stay up, but none of the downloads like GotR or GoS will be available for a few hours. This also includes things like individual mods, tutorials, and wallpapers.
I’ll post another update once it’s back up.
Scanti released a texture tool that allows you to unpack, edit, and repack SRTT textures! I did a quick test replacing the Killbane posters in Angel’s crib with a couple of old SR2 screenshots and it worked like a charm!
