A couple of quick patches

So it turns out that when your game is released on Steam it suddenly gets massively playtested and this can throw up a few bugs.  This week I released two patches for the PC version, v28 and v29.  They don't add any exciting new features, they just fix a few bugs and sources of confusion that got discovered by all the new players.  If you're one of those players then thanks for reporting them!  But I hope you don't find any more!

Here's the change log:
  • Added quest arrows to point to the next regional threat, if you are at war, when you select a Complete The Game quest.
  • Fixed 'Sarah Slaughter has an easy quest for you' mission not going away if you chose 'au naturel'.
  • Fixed being able to activate cheat mode before you were supposed to.
  • Fixed being able to get Jim Gallager to join you before Cassie is dead.
  • Fixed being able to trade negative items and get free stuff if you are over-encumbered.
  • Fixed being able to transfer items to you inventory by dragging them across in the 'Bring Supplies Home' inventory page.
  • Fixed fire and zombie sounds not being affected by the effects volume slider.
  • Fixed game crashing on startup on PCs using the Turkish language.

That aside, the Steam launch has gone pretty well, with lots of positive comments and good reviews.  Yay!
