Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone has launched the hotly anticipated 1.4 update for Stardew Valley. The enormous patch launched with an issue that causes players' game to crash but Barone reassured them and the emoji allergy shouldn't persist for long.
Stardew Valley's update 1.4 is just gigantic. It adds new content, features, quality of life changes, fixes and just about anything else you could think of that could be related to an update in any game. It even contains a new end-game activity and is generally a highly positive move forward for what is probably one of the most beloved games of the generation.
However, not everything is perfect with the update, at least as far as some people are concerned. Namely, the update launched with a bug that causes players to crash if they send an emoji without any text in chat. While it's certainly a genuine issue since no one likes crashing, it's hard not to imagine people who hate emojis just grinning in the corner.
Those worried about the stability of their game shouldn't be distressed for long, as Barone released PSA warning players about the issue that reassures the fans a hotfix will be coming soon.
Furthermore, it is possible to play Stardew Valley with no crashes in the meantime, provided the players refrain from sending lone emojis into the chat wilderness. It is enough to add any sort of text in order to circumvent a potential crash.
Meanwhile, the enormous patch notes certainly point to a lot of new content players can get swamped in, which will be a good way to pass the time until a fix arrives. We would suggest avoiding reading full patch notes for the time being, due to potential spoilers.
If you still want to, read the notes away .
