Greetings,
As pointed out by a few players, there was an issue introduced with the last patch, notably the speed of feinting during a combo. This patch brings the gameplay back to the way it was Pre-UGC patch. We also went ahead and fixed a few more issues.

Patch 34 Hotfix
  • Combo feint time restored to Pre-Patch 34 numbers
  • MOTD works in Duel and TO2
  • "Locked" message in Customization always shows the message for the current tab for less confusion
  • ?modname= works in the server maplist now, allowing servers to switch between mods
  • When running a mod, normal configs are used for non-modded classes
  • MAA "super jump" should no longer be possible.

Fixes
  • Code

      • no longer causes crashes
      • better performance
      • accepts mouse input
      • is blanked out to begin with, instead of showing garbage

    • Fixed: adminrestartmap on modded servers kicks everyone off the server and transitions to the map the server was started on
    • Prevent pawn moving, jumping in SIEGEWEAPON or DODGE states (when using a battering ram, when tipping burning oil, in mid-dodge, etc.)
    • More texture-related crash protection for the Scaleform integration
    • Fix a performance sink: Bink movie was rendering in background if you opened and then closed the escape menu. Also, stopping the movie in the FE if you leave the main menu for another screen.
    • remove uber nodes from the scaleform render target PPCs, and skip depth pre-pass (performance improvement in Customization)
    • additional messaging for the workshop uploader for some error conditions
    • Fix: riposte out of CFTP could cause windup and release to play different animations (e.g. windup would play Right-to-left slash, release would play left-to-right slash)
    • Fix: issue where inventory attachments would go bOwnerNoSee for 3p players upon own pawn death
    • Fixed some text getting cut off in the Customization screen
    • Customization screen will warn when exiting if any classes have invalid (locked) items equipped
    • Customization will be loaded from the config file with any invalid items automatically zeroed out, so even if you ignore the aforementioned warning, your customization will work and not be rejected by game servers (aside from the locked items, which will be reset to their defaults)
  • Levels

    • Belmez: Fixed areas where attacking team could bypass spawn barriers.
    • Outpost: Fixed instances where players could exploit loadout change volumes.
    • DarkForest FFA Cistern: Fixed instances where players could exploit loadout volumes from TO sublevels.
    • Server vs Client desyncs that caused players to disappear and TO items to not function properly should now be fixed.
    • Fixed some issues with the Crypts

Hi everyone, we'd like to get your help in testing Chivalry for Linux and Mac OS X.

Everyone who owns Chivalry should now have access to the Linux and OS X versions. Currently you will need to switch to a Beta branch to access this, the "linuxtesting" branch (for both OS X and Linux).

To access the port testing beta from the Desktop Steam client, right-click on Chivalry in the library, click Properties, click on the BETAS tab, and choose linuxtesting from the drop-down.


From Big Picture, open up Chivalry's page in the Library, move left to "Links & More", and down to "Select Beta..."; open this, choose "Ports testing (Linux+Mac)" from the drop-down, and choose OK.


If you can't see the branch, you may need to restart Steam first.

The Linux and Mac OS X builds should run without any additional dependencies required so long as you have Steam installed. Steam should include all the necessary libraries.

Performance on Linux should be roughly what it is on Windows for the same hardware, with potentially up to a 10% difference or so. OS X should be similar. Performance differences are going to come from differences between UE's renderers, and between OpenGL drivers.

We don't have much in the way of Mac hardware, so any performance reports we can get would be helpful, especially if you can compare performance to the game running natively in Windows, but even if not. Comparisons on Linux would also be really helpful.

Please post any bug reports, performance reports, or other feedback to:
Linux
Mac OS X

'Chivalry' is a word which here means 'hitting men with swords until their arms fall off and their legs fall off and maybe they don't have a head'. It's sad that modern warfare has lost this sort of gallant behaviour, but at least it's alive and well in Torn Banner's multiplayer men-hitting action game. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare has had a few free Steam weekends before now, and now it has another one. Look at it there, all temporarily free to play for the next two-ish days. As is the custom, the game is also 75% cheaper if you'd like to keep it after your sworded time is up.

Our Chivalry review doesn't appear to be online, but I'm reliably informed that we gave it 81%. That's quite a bit higher than the score Andy Chalk doled out to its Deadliest Warrior DLC, which "has neither the depth nor the polish to stay in the fight for long".

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

He is both armless and harmless, do you see?

Hey, it’s the weekend: relax. Kick back. Kick your shoes off. Treat yourself. Have a banana. Have a cup of good, hot, black coffee. Have a beer. Take a nice long shower. Soak in the bath. Read a little. Stab a man. Sit under a tree in the rain. Go for a nice walk. Stomp over the corpses of your conquered foes. Chat with a close friend. Swim in a pond. Swim in rivers of blood. Crack a man’s skull with a maul. Murder. Mutilate. Conquer. Kill.

First-person meleer Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is free to play this weekend on Steam, see.
