The earring that changed everything

Volition has released a fix for the Morningstar Soldier outfit so that the earrings now sit correctly on the player for all body types/sexes.

You might be asking yourself, “Idol, why the dramatic title for this blog post? It’s just a bugfix!” This seemingly small act of goodwill has much larger implications than you might think. Volition officially ended support on Saints Row: The Third quite some time ago, and many fans thought we would never see these issues corrected. Volition also worked with the community to integrate all of our existing dlc fixes into their patch, and have taken ownership by maintaining the release thread on our forums. The best part is that they do not plan to stop here. They have been researching all the existing issues and will also be attempting to fix other standout problems like the homie cooldown bug, Saints not driving the correct purple variants around town, and even the AMD performance issues.

I never expected to see this kind of support, but it really shows just how much Volition cares about supporting their games and the community now that they are free of the yoke of a dying THQ.

    Wow man…this really makes you like them even more. People saying that “they don’t care about us”are so wrong…

    If they could fix de AMD performance I would play another 200 hours to SRTT.
    Seriously it is amazing what they are doing and what you modders (all of you) have achieved.

    Amen, Idol. However, let’s not forget the effort you, Mini, and the others have put forth to help. Without said effort, Volition may have not seen the dedication the Modding community has for the Saints Row franchise.

    I’m just getting into the scene and getting to know you all at saintsrowmods, but I can clearly see how much you all love the series and how much you all want it to thrive beyond just new titles within the IP.

      That is very true but for a Developer to listen and to Help in the Way you do here is extraordinary. In Fact i don’t know any Professional Game Developer who has done what you are doing here for your Community. You Volition and of Course Deep Silver and Idolninja and Minimaul have my my deepest Respect for your dedication and for showing that Community, Modders, Developers and Publishers can work respectfully together. And let me Close this with a famous Quote from Monthy Python that i think is the best to describe my Feelings for Saints Row 4, the Saints Row Series in General and of Course the the Modding for Saints Row: “GET ON WITH IT !!!” :D

  5. What are the AMD performance issues anyway? I’ve never noticed any…

    Any chance at all of getting these fixes for the PS3 / 360?

    • IdolNinja says:

      I asked, but don’t hold your breath.

      • nanoflower says:

        I wouldn’t expect them for the 360 given that Microsoft still charges developers for any patches they want to do on the 360. Luckily that goes away with the Xbox One but since it’s still in place for the 360 Volition would have to pay Microsoft to update the 360 version. That seems unlikely for a game they no longer officially support.

    The amount of dedication of everyone involved in all this is outstanding and gives me hope for the industry as a whole. On a side note I love that they are finally going to fix the homie issue. In my main game at least 3 of my homies have been unavailable after using them once and yarnie delivery has come and gone. (The best call-in vehicle in my opinion)

    Thq fucked them. Plain and simple. Not in the good way either.

    Koch/Deep Silver has FREED THEM FROM TYRANNY!

  9. DarnHyena says:

    Man, they are really getting invested into this thing in such a short time.

    Kind of makes ya wonder just how much THQ really held them back on things.

    It’s more than Rockstar ever did dummies.

  11. if they are so “fan-centric” do this means we will not have any game save protection on saint row4 on the ps3?… fuck i hated that i couldn’t back up my saves for saint rows3 on the ps3. that was the only let down….
