We will be updating Steam with the following fixes later today.

  • The all-in close-up is now shown for everyone at the table, not just for the player going all-in. However, it is only shown when the situation is interesting enough, which is not very often in practice.
  • REP received from sending gifts to other players used to be random. Now it is 10% of the gift purchase price. For example, if you buy a gift for someone for 150,000 chips, you will receive 15,000 REP.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some instability during ranked tournament matchmaking.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a server disconnection and return to the title screen for a situation that should only show an error message without returning to the title screen.

Thanks for the reports!

Since we released the new Diamonds affiliation we've been looking through the forums and addressing your feedback as it comes up.

Here's an overview of the minor patches that released over the last couple of weeks.

  • This update fixes the "Not Enough Chips" error when going from a ranked games search to QuickPlay
  • It also fixes a rare crash
  • Loot cases will award items only for your current gender
  • Improved messaging around trying to join games with an insufficient bankroll
  • Fixed a couple of rare crashes

This update should fix the inability to rejoin a 6 player ranked tournament after at least one player has been knocked out. It also fixes a very rare crash on the game results screen. And those of you who have negative hands remaining on a table item boost should find that you now have more than zero hands remaining on that item, after re-Entering Prominence.

  • Player counts in the Ranked Games lobby, back by popular demand
  • Your missing 2% table item boosts have been converted to 5% boosts
  • A few minor cosmetic and server fixes

We are absolutely flattered to have been awarded "Best Card & Board Game" of 2016 by the TrueAchievements community!

Instead of simply patting ourselves on the back though, we'd like to thank all of you for making this possible. We've said from day one that Prominence Poker is a collaboration between our developers and our players, and without your honesty, insightful feedback, and attention to detail, our game wouldn't be nearly as good as it is today.

That said, our best days are still ahead of us. Prominence Poker is a growing, ever-evolving game, and if you like what you've seen so far, we encourage you to stay tuned. We've got big plans for the future, and we look forward to hearing your thoughts as we continue to build the best poker game available!

Happy Holidays!

Prominence Poker 27.471.008 is now available! This release fixes some bugs with achievements and server disconnections. Here's the full list:

  • A number of server disconnects have been fixed, especially in the lobbies and around invites.
  • Some bugs on the server with rep calculation have been fixed.
  • The Makin' it Rain achievement (100k from daily cut) has been calculated incorrectly since the beginning. It was including only base + bonus, not the streak and boost bonus. The daily cut total has been getting tracked in the user profile this whole time, though. After this update, the next time you collect your daily cut, the achievement progress will be updated to the total value from your profile, and will use that value henceforth.
  • Some people have reported that the Social achievements are not progressing correctly. We have not reproduced this, but we've added a potential fix. Please let us know if it worked.
  • The turn timer was often inaccurate, showing more time than you really have. It was especially bad on slow machines. It should be accurate in all cases now.
  • There are a number of changes around improving usability for people with very slow machines, and around improving quality of life for people with normal machines who are at the same table with people who have very slow machines.
  • Sometimes the RAM would stay up for a while after you took your action. No longer.
  • Fixed a bug where for some very specific chip stack values, your chip stack amount in the HUD would temporarily show about 900 chips less than the actual value.

Some of these bugs were fixed only because someone reported them in the forums. Thanks for helping, and keep letting us know about any problems you find!
