LIVE - BATTLETECH Update 1.2.1 and Linux Beta Release Notes

Welcome to BATTLETECH 1.2.1! This release contains a hotfix for various issues related to lances with custom ‘Mechs. Separately, the Linux version is also now available as a Beta!

Live Update 1.2.1
Issues surrounding custom ‘Mechs should be resolved. Specifically, if you had created a custom Mech or a lance including a custom ‘Mech in Skirmish, there were several issues with loading into the Skirmish lobby list, editing a custom lance, or changing custom ‘Mech names, these issues should all be resolved with this update.

Linux Beta
The Linux version of BATTLETECH is now available in Beta on Steam only! When it goes live, it will release on all supported distribution platforms. If you are a Linux Steam user interested in participating in this Beta, you can opt-in to the "public_beta_linux" branch on Steam. It contains the Linux platform and a number of small bugfixes.

Warning: If you are moving from Win/Mac games in progress to the Linux Beta, we advise that you back up your save games. You should also not expect to be able to move a saved game back from the Linux Beta to the current live Win/Mac version. However, when the Linux version goes live, a saved game created in the Beta should be forward compatible.

Multiplayer Warning: Both Beta and Live version players will be able to see each other in multiplayer lobbies. If Beta and non-Beta players try to join each other’s games, they will get a version mismatch error. BATTLETECH only supports multiplayer games between players using the same version of the game.

Linux Known Issues
  • Typed characters are being doubled when naming a 'Mech or a Lance.
  • Some menus may be extra light or extra dark depending on the system’s set screen resolution.
  • Hyperlinks are not functional on SteamOS.
  • Logging into a Paradox account always ends in a failure on the first attempt on SteamOS.
  • Multiplayer on SteamOS has intermittent connection issues (better as host than joiner).
  • Refreshing the save game list can sometimes hang on the main menu. Restarting the game should fix the issue.
IMPORTANT: Additional note for players who mod various game files… Reminder that modding is not officially supported. If you have saved a game with any mod active, that saved game will not work after an update has been applied unless you replace all modded files exactly as they were when the save game file was created. Saved games require the exact same data state in order to function properly.

As always, if you experience further issues please contact Customer Support at: https://support.paradoxplaza.com

About This Game



From original BATTLETECH/MechWarrior creator Jordan Weisman and the developers of the award-winning Shadowrun Returns series comes the next-generation of turn-based tactical 'Mech combat.

The year is 3025 and the galaxy is trapped in a cycle of perpetual war, fought by noble houses with enormous, mechanized combat vehicles called BattleMechs. Take command of your own mercenary outfit of 'Mechs and the MechWarriors that pilot them, struggling to stay afloat as you find yourself drawn into a brutal interstellar civil war. Upgrade your starfaring base of operations, negotiate mercenary contracts with feudal lords, repair and maintain your stable of aging BattleMechs, and execute devastating combat tactics to defeat your enemies on the battlefield.

COMMAND A SQUAD OF 'MECHS IN TURN-BASED COMBAT

Deploy over 30 BattleMechs in a wide variety of combinations. Use terrain, positioning, weapon selection and special abilities to outmaneuver and outplay your opponents.

MANAGE YOUR MERCENARY COMPANY

Recruit, customize, and develop unique MechWarriors. Improve and customize your dropship. As a Mercenary, travel a wide stretch of space, taking missions and managing your reputation with a variety of noble houses and local factions.

TAKE PART IN A DESPERATE CIVIL WAR

Immerse yourself in the story of a violently deposed ruler, waging a brutal war to take back her throne with the support of your ragtag mercenary company.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR 'MECHS
