"Welcome Back, Commander!"

 

 

This hotfix patch resolves a bunch of issues discovered over the last 24 hours, all patch notes for any further updates (including yesterday's patch notes) are below.

 

Over the past months, we've seen unexpected bugs and glitches occurring in patches that we weren't aware of before launch. Some of these have been in the game for a longer period of time while they were unintended. With the release of Patch 5.64a.312, we've solved a number of these issues that were most critical and were in need of a fix. With that, we've also included some minor balance changes and additional map fixes.

Check it out!

Hot & Spicy

 

Edit_001:

It is epic being able to correctly spam explosives again, thanks a lot for that fix, but since this update I have yet encountered a longer and a more heavy load while entering a server which causes an increased time to join. So sometimes I cannot be sure, if Renegade X has been stucked/frozen on main menu while loading up into a server..

Is it happening many times? It's possible the shaders are rebuilding. You can check the logs for that.

Yeah, was guessing about rebuilding/caching shaders. If a map has been loaded up for once, the loading-up process for that specific map is nearly as fast as it was before. Though before this patch and after a complete, clean and fresh reinstall of my OS and RenX, the loading-up process of maps didnt take that long.. I do clean up my caches nearly everyday.

EDIT_001:

On Map "Tomb", I solely insta rushed GDI REF as a Nod Engy. 1 Timed C4 and 2 Remote C4 nearly killed their REF. As about 3% was left only, prob saved by a-second repair.

EDIT_002:

A full server (Field) was nearly emptied while/after loading up the next map (Lakeside), as well as sound bug returned and applied after years. At least for me. Had to restart RenX. Also players were complaining about these both issues.

EDIT_003:

Rockets of Rocket Soldier glitch out. After reload rockets wont be shot but still reloading afterwards. The "reloading-bug" from the past as we know it already.

All shaders are built when we make patches, so it seems that something went wrong on our side. When shaders compile, it basically freezes the entire client and uses a ton of CPU, so I think people get confused with it being a crash/freeze, because there is no indication from the game that it is building shaders. We will most likely be putting out another patch relatively soon

2 days ago straight after the patch, I had planted a remote C4 onto a SBH's head. He seemed afk and cloaked next to a rock where the crate spawns on Nod's Island. After I had triggered that remote, he didnt take any damage of it. Not a scratch. I cannot remember our promotion levels anymore.

Today after the Hotfix as GDI - also on Islands - one single remote C4 did kill me inside Nod REF which wasn't even directly next to me. I had full HP. We both were Recruits. So my 2 Remotes and 1 Timed would had still killed their REF again, as yesterday on Tomb, if they didnt repair it before the Timed exploded.

It looks and feels like Engy Recruit C4's are a bit off.. Yet I havent been able to test that at other promotion levels and/or other characters on CT live servers. Or simply if various MCT's are different..

P.s.:

Today a bunch of players have complained again about these longer loading times, were afraid of a frozen game, as well as heavy CPU/GPU loads, and the "no-sound" bug. Especially happens on Lakeside. About ~30 players didnt rejoin.. That emptied the CT Marathon Server just by now.

But it is great to see a whole bunch of newcomers into Ren-X [...]

 

EDIT_001:

As a last Hotty game kicked me out. Lost Hotty, money and even become demoted.

I gonna double post for a latest update:

 

As of today RenX still needs a lot of time to "re-shade" maps who haven't been loaded up before. For my example it was Whiteout today, and for other players it was Eyes just by now. Nearly half of players were gone while changing from Islands to Eyes.
