Volunteers to test hotfix 3.3.4 & auto-update

Post by adherbal » Fri Apr 21, 2017 2:41 pm

We have completed a small hotfix to address most of the issues introduced in the new update. The game now has an auto-update system which allows us to solve bugs within days or even hours, but it hasn't been tested much yet.

So we are looking for volunteers to launch the hotfix download manualy through the following steps:
- Launch the game
- In the main menu, press SHIFT + C
- type "#patch patch3.3.4" (without quotation marks)
- Allow the auto-updater to download the patch & the game will restart automatically
- After restarting a popup will come up displaying the changelog and the version number at the button of the screen should read 3.3.4

We have tested this on both PC and Mac and it seems to work fine. If we can get a few more confirmations we will make it live, meaning the game will automatically ask permission to download the update.

Fixes:
• Japanese carrier-based fighters deployement/supply bug fixed
• Campaign resources carry-over fixed
• Hotseat: Missing texts fixed
• Online News close button fixed
• Cursor movement boundaries fixed

PS: This update does not affect multiplayer.

Will you also release the Hotfix on Steam?

For now the Steam version will also use this auto-update system. A "proper" steam update will have to wait until after the weekend.

PS: This console command also works on the current Steam version.

Ran the 3.3.4 hotfix, the Online News close button now works but the news shows the Blitzkrieg and 2.9.6 patch screen. Checking for any other issues.

Worked like a charm on steam. Had to hit Shift C and insert #patch patch3.3.4 in command line3 or the connecting just spun..
