Patch 1.02 Available and Changelog

Post by Surtur » Thu Dec 11, 2014 9:28 am

Hi guys,

we are pleased to announce v1.02 is now available. It contains a very long list of fixes. More than we thought and were planning.

You can download the patch here, or use the updater tool. The steam version of the game will be updated automatically.

Please note that some balance changes will only take effect when you start a new campaign. For example infantry unit size changes. If you want to continue an existing game you can work around this by upgrading your infantry to a different type and then back again and it will reset all your stats and you can continue with new fully sized squads.

You can see the full list below.

Fixed bugs:
• Game screen sometimes goes black after Alt-Tabbing out of the game, changing desktop resolution or suspending the PC.
• Upon exiting and restarting the game, the voice volume slider resets to default.
• Some edit boxes miss caret.
• The description for Max Hit Points is missing.(IDS_HELP_MAX_HIT_POINTS)
• On square monitors main menu background image is cropped correctly now, but in Loading screen it is still distorted
• Killed unit list does not work
• The game now correctly displays custom scenarios from %My Documents%\My Games\ Warhammer 40,000 Armageddon\Scenario folder in scenario list. Both in single player and multiplayer mode.

Features:
• Changes in unit panels in main UI:
o Added unit’s faction icon
o Added tooltip to experience bar
o Added health bar (like in unit list)
o Improved name and type presentation: now, if unit name includes type (as in all auto-generated names), type is not shown and name occupies two lines, and so is never truncated.
o Range now always shown as Min-Max.
o Replaced strength and health stats with cover and morale
o Combat prediction is indicated with blinking red on attacker’s and defender’s health bars.
o Added per-weapon combat prediction (weapon status, firing accuracy and damage).
• Unit which will provide support fire is marked on the map with “support” symbol next to its strength plate.
• Melee impact animations and audio effects have been integrated.
• Added hot seat mode via MP interface (accept your own challenge)
• Added chat screen (accessible via Enter key, also appears automatically at the end of the turn and at the beginning if there are new messages)
• Added FPS limitation (50 FPS max)
• Setting volume to zero disables sound completely, not just sets volume to zero
• Mouse cursor no longer depends on game frame rate – should move smooth on all systems
• Mouse cursor is confined to game’s window (on multi monitor systems)
• Mouse cursor turns to arrow with ? on icons which can be clicked for more info.
Editor changes:
• Added automated tile placement (Tools->Generate Tiles)
• Added firing effects editor (Edit->Efx Editor…)
• Fixed Tools->Validate Scenario command
• Fixed Tools->Show Statistics command
• The Editor should no longer display “invalid scenario” message when saving valid playable scenarios.
• Removed Tools->Options command as it is not used by the Editor.

Many infantry teams with only one range weapon have gained increased formation sizes for all factions.
Hive Militia units defense lowered.

Bug: Ultramarine termies not getting Land Raider transports in Act 2 (act 3 normal).

Caused by Unit ID 787 not being included in avail7.whdat

BA and Sala Land Raiders are OK (ID 587 and 687)

Suggested hotfix: add 787 to avail7.whdat

Seeking Yarrick bug ?

It is strange that you do not win if you kill all enemies. Looking to scenario parameters, you win if you have no unit (side 1) on the map and Yarrick is discovered. Should it not be that Yarrick is found and no enemy units (side 2) are on the map ?

Am I crazy or are Mega Nobz next to impossible to kill now? I keep losing the second Mission in Act 2 because it takes a rediculous amount of firepower to kill them..and I keep running out of turns with way too many opposing units alive at the top 4 objectives
