Hello everybody,

The following changes are now live.

- custom campaign now has advanced game options
- custom campaign on Planet Earth should no longer crash
- custom campaign strategy maps are different from multiplayer maps on the same level (neutral units)
- custom campaign savegames fixed
- saving & loading of advanced game options fixed in custom campaign
- "it's impossible commander" audio spam and related FPS drop fixed
- UPNP fix should stop people from getting stuck on black screen when clicking multiplayer
- Fix for difficulty level not being taken correctly from game options without restarting game or loading savegame

The roll out of this update was slowed down because of the farfetching impact of a new feature we added that lets you change the game rules in the custom story campaign. This caused some complications but they are now fixed. By playing with these options you can literally turn Dragon Commander into a another game and we encourage you to experiment with all the settings. Also, let us know which ones you prefer. If enough of you concur on specific settings, we might turn them into a game mode.

It's worth pointing out that the story situations you encounter in this mode are completely randomized and are drawn from a larger pool of situations, We've also added different scenarios for you to play on. It's the perfect way to explore different choices and experience their consequences. In custom story campaign mode you can immediately select which princess you marry first, skipping the beginning of the game.

We are currently working on a larger update which contains a number of other improvements and also further boosts the AI's, taking into account the suggestions you've been making. We expect this update to be out in the not to distant future i.e. it's actually ready but we still need to test it.

If you are interested in helping us out with testing the updates, please send a mail to supportdc@larian.com with "DragonTester" in the subject line. We'll then send you a code with which you can access the updates once they are available.

Have fun!

Hi Everybody,

We're still fixing a few things in the promised new custom story campaign mode, so we can't launch it today yet. Most likely it'll be tomorrow. Nonetheless, there were a few things that needed fixing, so we launched a new version today with the following changes:

- Savegame instability problems fixed
- UPNP lookup performance problem fixes (was noticable when going to lobby screen)
- Fixed memory leak in UPNP

Have fun!

Hi everybody,

We just released a new update which does a number of fixes and also introduces a more challenging "hard"' mode. In "hard' the strategy map unit layout and map layouts are a bit different now and the AI will also try harder to destroy you. For full effect, you need to restart the game in "hard' as changing modes during the story campaign will not affect the current strategy map.

Tomorrow we're planning on releasing an update that adds customization of the custom story campaign game rules (like in multiplayer) as well as a number of new battle scenarios for the custom story maps.


- Fixes for users having problems starting the game because of unsupported resolutions
- Fix for the game crashing when pressing the continue button in the main menu
- The continue button will only load campaign savegames
- Sorting of savegames is correct now
- Several fixes to achievements
- Hard difficulty is a bit harder now
- The strategy maps will scale according to difficulty setting
- Several fixes for users experiencing NAT punchthrough failures
- Better detection of recommended graphic settings + added warning when setting the graphic settings too high for your system specs

Have fun!
