ok, um i just downloaded the update and i have a glitch(i think) i had last saved inside the ice dungeon that has the ice dragon and.... well i cant see anything. like if i were to try to enter the first dungeon w/o the magic candle. so uh, im stuck cause i cant figure how to get out since i cant see anything, i am trying to just run around aimlessly to get out but its not working, i can see just a little bit though cause of the colored candles in the cave but its not enough. I am going to try for a bit longer but i am wondering if maybe i can get a map of this place sent to my email or something. if i knew exactly what the dungeon looked like i could most likely get out. anyways let me know, thank you

Ok, this is issue number one, and it's kinda bad... My fault, please keep the old savegame if you experience the darkness bug so we can solve it next update.

So the problem is: the new lightning system uses new parameters so if we load an old save wich has already those parameters set it will likely not work giving a impossible to see screen.

Solution:
1) find a way to exit to the nearest non dark map, then the bad parameters will be wiped out and you're ready to go
2) wait until we fix this son of a bitch

For draco:
Depending on where you are getting to the lollypop factory might be extremely hard, i'm sending you pics of the rooms. Let me know if you manage to get out to the light.

hey guys, great job with the progress. i am addicted to DnD atm. however i came across a new major glitch. story short, i used old savefile to explore up to dark eid's place. before entering the castle i explored the helipad then entered. (to see if i was brought there like the last glitch) bought stuff n talked to everyone. even dark himself. noticed we can still go home i saved and checked it out. now everytime i load, i cant leave the castle without running directly down (as if i was flying there with benjamin) just to get stuck on the mountain. the last thing i did before that was see the boat dude who whistles for you. i have no problem with glitches but ever since this, i cant even start a new game without it shutting down on me with code 4. hence me msgn you. so now i cant continue my awesome old save or make a new game without it turning off within 5 minutes.

in 1.2 we acknowledged a big issue.
once you finish the game and you are back to the lab, you CAN'T explore the world since you will be pushed around the world map by an old event.
sorry, a lot. we have already fixed the problem, but due to Xbox limitations, the fix wouldn't be out before the end of next week i'm so sorry since is my fault
we will make up for the inconvenient.
