Poker Night Update!

The updated version of Poker Night at the Inventory has finally been made available to all customers, be it Telltale customers or Steam customers.

Telltale customers: Get the update from your Games Page.
(Note: If you downloaded the game from Telltale this past weekend, you probably already have the update.)

Steam customers: just restart Steam, and the update should start downloading.

What's new in the update?

[quote]Poker Night update, changes list:

Poker & Gameplay Fixes

* At the end of a hand, winners of the main pot and any side pots all announced individually. (Previously, only the winner of the biggest pot was announced.)

* Each round, the minimum raise starts at the big blind until someone raises, after which the minimum raise is the amount of that last raise.

* In heads up (one on one) play, the dealer is now the small blind and first to act pre-flop.

* If a someone folds and is part of a side pot, and after the fold only one person remains in the sidepot, the sidepot gets cleared and paid out to that one remaining person.

* The tutorial now automatically comes up once, the first time the game is played. It is still also available on-demand from the Poker Help screen.

* Players who have a straight flush, four of a kind, full house, flush or straight will now get the appropriate hand achievement even if everyone else folds to them in that hand.

* Fixed issue causing character tells to almost never play.

* Fixed issue causing only one of the player's hole cards to display when skipping dialog.

* Improved readability/consistency on the unlockable Strong Bad card deck.

* Max properly leaves the table after his "I'll be in the bar" bust out line.

----

Compatibility Fixes

* Anti-aliasing quality control added to Graphics Settings screen.

* Improved compatibility with Shader Model 2.0 graphics cards.

* Fixed cases of invisible and garbled text on the title screen and settings screen on some systems.

* Some lower end video cards which formerly just drew a black screen should now display the game. :)

----

Content

* Two new poker tables available on the Unlocks screen: “Poker Night,” and “Inventory Security”

  • Awesome, thanks Telltale! :)

  • I downloaded and the intro plays fine but when the actual game starts it crashes and the game shuts off and comes up with an error message. At least some of my problems are fixed, but I want to be able to play it...:(

    @Gman5852 said: So were the tables an apology, or a hint for DLC?

    "An apology?" No. But the team is of the mind that patches are always better/more worthwhile when they have a piece of content and not just a bunch of fixes.

    @Gman5852 said: Are the new tables already unlocked or do you need to unlock them?

    They're pre-unlocked. It was too screwey to try and sneak them into the unlocks system.

  • They are? I only have the regular one =/

    Oh well, I'll try deleting the save file, I already lost all my data twice anyways and it's not like I had unlocked anything else since then >__>

  • I just wanted to mention that I can't seem to run Poker Night anymore on my Netbook and I could before the update. Running it windowed on an HP Mini311 with 3 GB of RAM. Nvidia Ion Graphics chip.

    Things went fine previously though I seem to just get a black screen now after the Telltale logo screen.

  • Oh they're at the bottom, that'd explain it >.>

    Yeah, same here. This needs to be fixed. I am dissappoint. :mad:

  • Thank you Telltale team for the recent patch. I've eagerly been waiting to play and have thoroughly enjoyed it now that I finally can. However, there are still some minor errors that should be addressed.

    Via the Poker help menu, graphic issues still seem to plague the game.

    The same problem is visible when hands are shown.


    These fixes would definitely be great to have, especially given the already beautiful nature of the game, and it would only make it that much more pleasing. Again, thanks for all the effort, hard work, and nuisances you've been through since Thanksgiving.

    Oh yeah, Merry Christmas too!
