    I’m going to put this to rest right now. There has never been a boat start up alert from across the map for Jason. Not at launch, not ever. The only time Jason would hear the boat start is if he was right near it. I am a day 1 player as well, but unlike those purely depending on their memory, I decided to go through some of the earliest videos from May 2017 to confirm whether there 100% was or wasn’t a start up noise. Here is one video you can watch for yourself. Skip to about 23:00, where the boat is still stationary. It is moving 1-2 mins after that, yet there was no start up alert within that time at all. I remind you this is from May 2017, as early as it gets - Make no mistake, what they have added in this latest patch is new. It is also thoughtless and misguided since the way the boat was balanced is that it potentially allowed for a quiet escape, with high risk of death if Jason noticed it moving on the map. Now, it is just a death trap.

    Adding a sound is not a positive. The whole point of taking the boat is a stealth escape. In exchange for that stealth you risk nearly certain death if caught. By adding a sound you make it so only a complete fool would bother with the boat.

    Why would you add a sound for the boat starting? You already were taking a huge risk with the boat. Now the boat is useless.

    Hey, just want to give a shout out and praise for the newest patch. I no longer have to recreate groups over and over just to play with my Steam "friends." The boat sound does balance things I feel as it makes it easier to know when the boat is being used just like the cars. And YES, people STILL get away on the boat, just like the cars. There is still an interaction glitch sometimes but you'll get to it... eventually. I really like the direction you all are taking this game with the limits you are allowed. It is a shame we'll never get Jason X or any new content BUT these patches are making that easier to deal with. Keep up the good work. And ignore the sissies on Steam that are bitching about the new boat noise or that you all ruined that game somehow. They're just idiots and morons that are never truly satisfied.

    Things like this have been this game's undoing. Ignoring actual issues to implement changes that literally no one asked for.

    Fair points, but I disagree with the fact that there should be an alert. On the car if you get stopped you can run out, in the water you're dead. Of course this isn't taking rubberbanding into account either. Also, I'm all for Jason being stronger, objectives being made virtually obsolete is not how I woukd go about doing that

    Just thought of an idea that could have worked if there wasn't this unknown of officially off-limits game changes as of now, but as a trade-off to this whole complaint, if ANY skill checks are missed for ANY vehicle while repairing, then a sound cue for starting up happens. If there are NO MISSED checks during repairs, a vehicle can silently start up. Fair?

    That is the risk of taking the boat. More direct and less obstructions to the exit, yet vulnerable if caught. I don't see the problem. I want this to be a HORROR game, so anything to make that faux feeling of survival a bit more intense I'm all for. Just like the movies (aside from hearing his prox music in the game) it emphasizes that Jason could potentially be ANYWHERE at ANY TIME. I LOVE THAT! An objective item in the bottom of the lake or glitched into the terrain makes the objectives obsolete. A sound cue just makes you (as a counselor) a much more favorable target, but not a 100% guaranteed death (dependant on the Jason players skill/ attention/ intention). Again, a non-issue that only bothers people who want to "win" (as in (and not to say YOU sspecifically) playing in the mindset of a FPS, needing to win because anything less is a strike against your game skills AND your social standing in real life (for fucks sake, I hate social media)) . I want to survive by the "Skin O' My Teeth" or BRUTALLY die trying. @malloymk (Keep in mind, this isn't an angry tag.) I won't keep this up. I wouldn't be able to convince you this is a positive just as you can't convince me it's a negative. Agree to disagree & that's that, I guess.

    I bumped Ben's post from last year, but people will still misremember a boat noise that hadn't existed since launch. I could have bet 10 bucks you'd be slobbering up an added dumb game mechanic and I would have been 10 bucks richer too.

    @[IllFonic]Courier "Added a sound effect to starting the boat." Boat is a death trap now. Thanks. What made the boat escape balanced is that there was no sound effect. If Jason sees the boat moving on the map, it's game over. There is no way to escape Jason in the water, except maybe a slow water Jason in very select circumstances. If Jason knows the boat is in play, no one is escaping by boat unless say boat and car and phone are all repaired at once or something. Now if someone starts the boat alone, game over. Done. You're dead. You can't defend yourself in water and you can't outrun Jason in the boat if he has 1% common sense. Morph to the exit, catch the boat when it gets there, drown 1-2 people, that's it. Done. Game over. When Jason had to pay attention to the map there was a chance of failure and it was more thrilling for the counselors because you could never know for sure if Jason knew you were escaping via boat. Now because he gets notified, the boat is a non-option because he'll drown your ass in 2 seconds. If you are on PC don't bother hiding anywhere because hackers have ESP wallhacks that show the locations of every person and item on the map, and basically the entire PC player base that's left playing are hackers, like 90%. I played 1 match last month and I hid under a bed well before Jason showed up and Jason ran right to the exact bed I was in and killed me. Like out of 400 average players left about 350 are hackers that never get banned or circumvent bans with unlimited dupe accounts.

    I definitely disagree with the boat alert. 1) Unlike the fuse and phone box, the propellor OR gas isn’t always in the general area of the boat. From my experience, one is and one isn’t. Usually, one component is clear across the map. 2) The propellor’s size often makes it difficult to find, and easy to overlook. 3) The boat only holds two. 4) Even Jason’s that are slow in the water can catch the boat if they morph to a strategic place. 5) It takes no skill to kill counselors in the water. Counselors are helpless if the boat overturns. A simple button tap gives Jason an insta-kill. And now Jason gets alerted when the boat starts? Why the hell would I even TRY to find both boat components? The boat can be tough to put together, but it’s rewarding as a stealthy escape if you managed to get it done. Now it’s not going to be worth the effort at all. UNLESS... you start the boat, immediately leave it, then try to come back to it when Jason’s busy. Overall though, it sounds too high risk/low reward to me. If I want to go skydiving, and the instructor tells me that 90% of the parachutes won’t open, I ain’t goin’.

    So this doesn't look like it address the character swaping or the problem where Jason loads in a bunch of mismatched textures with part 3 abilities regardless of which one was selected. And since when did the boat ever make a starting noise to alert Jason? It's never made a sound since release. This is going to make it almost impossible to escape using this method.

    AH! Okay. As far as I know, Roy's Shift is still "neutral." But Jason VII (my favorite and preferred) is now +Shift. I hope that answers your question.

    The boat noise would be a nice addition, plus I have experienced the walking through cars, and the interaction locks on consoles. Some of the bugs appear to be the same. I hope interaction lock gets fixed soon. It's very hard to escape Jason when I can't jump through windows.

    You're more optimistic about this then I am. I think it will just lead to nobody even bothering with the boat.

    I could have sworn that at some point during the launch, back last spring/summer, Jason did hear the boat start. That changed pretty quick within some patch cause I seem to remember hearing it, then later talking out loud that how could that boat escape because I heard nothing... i could be wrong though.

    proximity boat start noise would make sense to me. All the way across the map is kinda bogus...

    The sound should have always been there, even if Big Bens opinion says otherwise. If Jason can hear a car start from any distance, it stands to reason that a boat will too. This is a non-issue that shouldn't upset anyone. More power to Jason and more of a challenge for counselors, EXACTLY how it should be. The alerts, to me, were never the problem... It was the Morph grid layout. A car or boat could easily escape if the game decided to put you some distance off the area you chose on the Morph map, and it happens a lot if you try getting ahead of the boat on Pinehurst near the bottleneck on the West between the exit and that nearest bridge. It won't put you between the exit and bridge, but instead will put you up on land away from the bridge or in the water some distance EAST of that Western bridge.

    1- No , I am serious , if I offended you , I am sorry , as I said , I am not here to have a bad time. I am not here to have some verbal fights. If you still don't believe me.....then I don't know man.....you should not take everything negative. 2-Okay , seems like it was there on PC , we don't know the whole truth yet , we Need some more more People backing it up. No , I like the devs because they brought me a game I love. I know that they fucked up so hard and often but as Long as I have fun with the game , I am happy. 3-We haven't heard yet if there is even a Sound cue now and even if it is , I don't care About it being there. But I can agree , that it is not the best choice they made. Holy moly , some People can get Angry very easily…...

    Same with ps4. There is a sound you could hear if you were near the dock that you would hear, but there was no alert if you were somewhere else on the map. And there shouldn't be.

    I really don't understand how the dev made this decision. I understand when they changed mechanics because players complain about this, like Jason's grab range or teamkill. But who complain about boat starting alert?

    Several people have brought up the fact that we need client side saves, it was said that they were going to look into it, but it wasn't as major of concern as the bug fixes and dedicated servers at the moment. So, like everything else, it will be coming soon.

    Part 6 having khaki pants is accurate to a few scenes. besides, he was in the ground so you can forgive if his pants soaked up some dirt. His build should be more similar to part 5. Not quite that slim but slimmer than Kane, but they wanted to portray all the Jasons as if they were played by Kane. Hence why Part 2 Jason is a Mr. Olympia competitor despite being a feral wildman that lives in the woods and poops in a toilet with no plumbing. Mask should be kind of oval-diamond shaped rather than just plain oval shaped like the part 3 mask. The eye holes need to be kind of guitar pick shaped rather than those weird screwed up circles we got now.

    Topic was probably already created, but not public. Now the patch has gone through certification, they have set it to public. Or time travelling. ?

    Then the reward for doing so should be much, much higher. If the reward for surviving is the exact same across the board no matter the method, players will use the path of least resistance; that’s just common sense. If the fuse — a multi-step process itself — can get everyone out, why do TWICE the work with TWICE the risk to only get two players to safety? Theres no motivation at all to attempt the boat now. The stealth was the boat’s only upside for all the work. That’s gone now.

    Just a joke that went wrong.... @Slasher_Clone I am aware of the: "That you know of" theory.... There may even be something to this... Now I need a beer... fortunately, I have a dedicated beer cooler beside my chair. @Bropollocreed79 I wouldn't hold my breath either. But as far as PC goes... I have only played 4 games since the patch and had no problem getting in with friends.... one friend spawned as Tiffany without their consent... and I saw a savini Jason in the exit animation when the game had Roy in it... so far, that is it for the bugs... but it was only 4 games.

    I believe Jason should be stronger than he currently is. But this boat nonsense is not the way to do it. Killing Jason is a safer bet than escaping in the boat.

    I've been playing since launch and I've never heard the sound as Jason. Unless I was keeping tabs on the boat they would get away unless they messed up the skill check. Which was fair and balanced because its almost impossible to out run Jason in the boat because he can just morph to the boat exit.

    It´s amazingly pathetic that there is not even the slightest info about bug fixing. Big silence about everything game related for ages but as soon as it is about bans someone hops in... Rather care about fixing your game and acting like a decent developer and you won´t have to deal with bans so much.

    It ain't worth $70... $70 for all the dlcs and a poster? Why would anyone buy this? You could just buy the base game and all the dlc for cheaper... Good, the current listings are not worth that hefty price. Edit: Just saw the updated listing, and. I don't know tbh... I sttill think there could be more, how's about a map of the full camp side(That includes crystal lake,Higgins Haven,Packanack,Jarvis House, and Pinehurst) ? Or maybe some crystal lake pocket knives? Just a few ideas.

    Every backers should check their emails, I received an email a couple of hours ago with and update on the Artbook and soundtrack. The Artbook should contain over 100 pages and the soundtrack will include 2 discs of music from the game composed and performed by Harry Manfredini. They're roughly estimating around 6 to 8 weeks until we get those items in our hands. The digital versions of those items will be available through Backerkit when they begin to ship the physical items.
