Update in the works!

You may wish to know...

We’re working on an update for Poker Night to (among other things) clarify how hands with side pots are being resolved. Currently, when multiple players go all-in with different chip totals, the winner of the largest pot (whether the Main Pot or the Side Pot) is being announced as winner of the hand (even when a smaller Main Pot is lost to the best hand). The pots are being divided correctly, but the messaging is causing some confusion. We’re working on making it more clear.

  • @Javi-Wan Kenobi said: Well, maybe I'm lucky, but I've only found two bugs:
    * The side-pot-winner one
    * Sometimes, after Strong Bad wins a hand, the shovel stays floating in middle-air between him and The Heavy.

    Ive only had 2 as well

    The extreame lag(if you check my steam account you can see Ive been playing for 6 hours, that was ONE tournamnent)
    and Max having a chip stuck to his thumb(if he has a thumb)

  • There is bug in how stats are collected. When you were eliminated from the game and you choose to watch continuation all hands are still counted as yours total played.
    I also had some another bug, though I'm not really sure what caused it. So after I've lost I watched continuation to see a winner, and after he was announced I've closed the game. The next day when I launched the game and chose to start a new one it asked, if I want to continue old tournament or to start a new one (even though I've never seen this menu options before nor can I now). I've chosen to continue, but it continued the game right from the point when I've lost, like I didn't watch it to the end. So to start a new game I've picked New Game again, it asked again if I want to start a new tournament, so this time I chose Yes. And after that all my stats were nullified, my unlocks locked again. WTF?

    P.S. Also, your forums (or registration form?) can't handle the unicode correctly =(

    Really? Did Season 3 play smoothly? I thought the requirements are the same.

    well for me season 3 runs perfectly smooth, but this game runs as if I am playing on my netbook.(which is BAD)

  • I once was all in with 3k chips, The Heavy Machine Guy called me with an all in of 33k chips...then everyone else folded. I won the pot and it eliminated the Heavy Machine Guy and I got his full bet even though it should have only given me 3k of his chips. So this is an edge case where there would of been a side pot if anyone matched Heavy Machine Guy, but no one did, and something went really wonky with the distribution of the payouts at the end. I've seen this work, but only if the smaller bet for all in came after the bigger all in bet.

  • Well, one time, the Heavy's cards were floating and visible... needless to say, I won that round.

  • @Falanca said: I think the only announced fix is aimed at the least important bug this game has.


    I hardly think so. It's a PR disaster. People can't have any confidence in a game where the "wrong" person wins, even if it's not actually the case that the wrong person is winning.

    Of course the number of people who can't play the game at all is more critical, but the announcer "bug" is pretty bad.

  • Thanks for the support, Jake. As a user I really appreciate it!

    I still think they should work on compatibility issues, since the ones who CAN play the game also suffers from framerate and cursor speed. Seriously, I think "LOL, I won the thing, I also got the money, but the game says I didn't, what a story" problem is nothing compared to that. It's rather a gaming disaster, although a narrow one in radius.

  • I'm sure they're working on compatibility issues...
