In addition to our big announcement today of the new X Rebirth VR Edition, we are also releasing new public beta updates for several of our existing games.
X Rebirth 4.10
X3: Albion Prelude 3.2
X3: Terran Conflict 3.3
All three of these updates improve the games, and include a number of fixes and performance improvements that have come to our attention over the past months. These updates will, of course, be made available to everybody once the testing has ended.
This is a small technical update for Windows only and does not contain any new gameplay features.
• Fixed selection of wrong graphics card on systems (particularly laptops) that have dual graphics. • Fixed issue with menu performance on systems with particular AMD graphics hardware and driver combinations.
We are pleased to announce that Steam Cloud support is now enabled for all games in the X series, to bring the older games in line with X Rebirth.
Your savegames will now be synchronised across different PCs using the same Steam account by default.
If you do not wish to use Steam Cloud to synchronise your games, then right-click on the game in question in the Steam library, choose Properties, go to the Updates tab and uncheck the "Enable Steam Cloud synchronization" checkbox setting.
You can, of course, re-enable it at any time if you change your mind.
The Bonus Package for X3: Terran Conflict has just been released on Steam. It's a free collection of script plugins that have been created by members of the Egosoft forum community. Egosoft has selected them as extensions that fit well into, and do not destroy, the balance of the game. To access the bonus content, simply install it from the store page. The Bonus Package will also show up in the DLC tab of the game properties, where you have the option to uninstall it.
If you have previously installed the non-Steam version of the Bonus Package, it is recommended that you uninstall it first.
