If you have corrupted save files, Lords of the Fallen asks you to do this to help prevent it.

Lords of the Fallen has just released a new patch in which They have inserted more than 100 improvements. Between stability changes, performance, errors and other adjustments, they have enhanced and/or fixed many details. None of them were particularly serious, as we have seen in the patch notes, but it is still an interesting update.

Especially because it has shown us that the studio, despite the fact that its work is in great shape, is still very involved in the project. Or in other words, they seem convinced of improving the experience as much as possible. Despite this, they continue to face a rather annoying setback:some save files are corrupted.

Lords of the Fallen publishes a new patch and makes a request

During the last few weeks, several players have had problems saving their games. In many cases, they have even lost all or part of their data. This is why Hexworks has included a new security system. This is intended to reduce save issues to “help reduce the rare issue some users have experienced with corrupt save files.”

In principle, with this we should no longer have problems. Despite this, they have explained that, if we ever have a problem with this, The ideal is that we contact them at [email protected] and have us send them the damaged file. With this, although they do not say anything about recovering the data, they could have more information of vital importance to analyze the error.

So, if you are unlucky enough to be one of those affected, you can help the rest of the players and prevent this from happening again. Otherwise, the patch addresses general issues that improve overall performance and gameplay.

If you are not satisfied with the chosen character in Dead Island 2 and would like to start over again, you can simply create a second saved game by selecting the “Butcher” menu item in the main menu. Under the “Butcher” menu item you will find six butcher slots that you can use to create six saved games. You don’t have to delete the previously created character, you can simply set a new butcher and start the game again.

Android 11 tries a new way to save even more battery: suspend cached apps

The latest version of Android 11 debuts a way to improve the battery in the background: now you can cancel the execution of cached applications. In this way the useful life is extended after a charge, although with a drawback: use of multitasking worsens.

Android always had the sambenito of high power consumption, not in vain it had to run applications in a virtual machine. Over the years Google significantly improved the runtime environmentIt also included improvements for background use and even an intelligent energy saving system (Adaptive Battery). Despite the satisfactory evolution, there is always room to further reduce consumption, a point on which the latest Android 11 novelty affects.

Battery improvement, somewhat slower multitasking

Android’s application execution system caches unused applications so that user can switch to them quickly in case you are using multitasking. These cached apps continue to access the processor cycles and also the other components, such as modems, to use the communication data. This implies an additional energy expenditure since, in theory, the user does not need that application that is kept in cache.

Google began testing a system of ‘freezing’ cached applications with the beta 2 of Android 11, a system that is starting to go live in tests for some users of the stable version. This is confirmed by XDA Developers (via @MishaalRahman), we have not yet appeared on the Google Pixel.

As detailed by XDA Developers, the new system freezes the applications that are in the device’s cache to prevent them from working while not in use. This saves battery, you can also help keep mobile data consumption at bay. All with a trade-off: since the cached apps are frozen, in the event that the user wants to return to them, Android 11 will have to put them back into operation, an action that involves a some delay in reactivating the app. Of course, it will always be less than loading the application from scratch since, likewise, it is kept in cache no matter how long it is suspended.

This new suspension system for cached apps slows down the switching between apps, with the consequent effect on multitasking

The new feature of Android 11, named as’Suspend the execution of cached applications‘, has appeared in tests within the developer options of some users. By default it is adjusted according to the device: in this way it is the system that is in charge of canceling the execution. We will see if it really manages to scratch a few mAh to energy consumption.
