Barony V3.2.2 Windows Hotfix "PhysFS Failed To Initialize"

Hi All,

A small amount of Windows users reported that Barony would fail to start and immediately shutdown, producing the following error line in the log.txt file:
[PhysFS]: failed to initialize! Error code: 0

The Steam files have been updated with a new "physfs.dll" which hopefully fixes the issue. If anyone has trouble after this update, a backup of the old file is in the Steam install directory "physfs_backup.dll" which can be renamed to overwrite the new file and work as before.

If this hotfix doesn't work, please report in the bug report forum thread. Otherwise if this fixes your issue, let us know in the comments! This will be pushed out to our other storefronts in the coming days.

Cheers,

Ben

Barony V3.2.2: Faster Performance, Faster Digging, and Faster Bugfixes!

Hi All,

Grab your pickaxes and digging spells! We've got big performance optimisations in this V3.2.2 patch, and as a result all areas of the game should be smoother and sleeker to play!

Changelog:
  • Greatly optimised entity lookups for pathfinding, targeting and movement. Tiles now keep track of what entities reside on them.
    • Initial level load times heavily improved.
    • Pickaxes/digging spell stutter reduced from 500ms worst case to < 1ms. Miners rejoice!
  • Improved frame-rate limiter to a higher performance counter for smoother fps.
  • Added option to disable multithreaded Steam multiplayer networking. Fixes stutter/lag issue that Linux/OSX users were reporting! If Steam lobbies perform worse then direct-ip, turning this off may improve performance. Many thanks to Exezin for helping solve this issue on our GitHub page
  • Added tooltips to options in the 'misc' settings menu for clarity.
  • Added setting in the 'audio' section to mute music and sounds when the Barony window is not in focus.
  • Added setting under 'video' to show skill values (trading, magic, leadership etc) as numbers (20 / 100) rather than tiers (master, novice).
  • Boulders now properly destroy furniture as they roll through them rather than clipping through.
  • Added notification on enabling /brawlermode to show if the achievement is active or the current run requires a reset.
  • Fixed boulder traps spawning on top of entities they shouldn't (again!). Traps will be removed if they generate above a chest/door or other collidable object.
  • Fixed camera turn up/left/down/right getting rebound if bound to the previous default keybinds of q,e,z,c.
  • Fixed minotaur/hunger icons being blocked when HP/MP bars were set to a higher UI scale.
  • Fixed furniture displaying incorrect 'ghost' HP boxes when switching targets from a monster.
  • Fixed crash for Linux/OSX when attempting to open the Steam Workshop or Custom Content menu options.
  • Fixed Steam in-game leaderboard scrolling for categories with more than 15 entries.
  • Fixed score window monster kill text spilling outside the window.

As usual the feedback/bug report thread is here to submit your comments.

And finally if you haven't joined our official Barony discord, you can join via this link to chat and start up some multiplayer lobbies! http://discord.gg/Eg2r5fE

Cheers,

About This Game

Barony is a 3D, first-person roguelike with cooperative multiplayer that brings back the cryptic and intricate designs of classic roguelikes such as Nethack and melds them with RPGs like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, and Daggerfall. Challenge is the calling card of this hard-boiled dungeon-crawler.

Features


  • Gameplay inspired by RPG classics like Ultima Underworld, System Shock, & Daggerfall
  • Roguelike mechanics such as perma-death, random dungeons, cryptic messages, and more
  • Meticulously narrated action that mimics the insane events one could expect to find in games like Nethack
  • A complex yet intuitive drag & drop interface to manage items and character stats
  • Cooperative multiplayer for up to 4 players over internet or LAN (includes Steam and direct-IP connections)
  • Hundreds of unique collectible items and loot, including several rare and mystical artifacts
  • Chock-full of secret areas, special levels, developer easter eggs, and more
  • Bundled level editor, exposed assets, and simple file formats for easy hacking, modding & tinkering

The Story So Far


Barony tells the story of an undead lich named Baron Herx, who terrorized the town of Hamlet in a previous life and is now holding out in a vast subterranean complex known as the Devil's Bastion. As a single hero or a group of adventurers, it is your mission to descend the depths of his abode, confront him in his hellish lair, and destroy him forever. Whether you will simply meet your doom in the dungeons as many have before you or rise to victory against the Baron and his hellspawn is ultimately up to you.
