***NEW VERSION [UPDATED]: Release v1.4b***
Hello everyone!

Release v1.4 is here!

Be sure to update your game on Steam. It should do so automatically (as long as you are not playing a game). But you can also double check to see if your version has updated by navigating to your KOFXIII local files in Steam, and looking for a file called "release-v1-4.txt" (it should be in the same directory as your "kofxiii.exe" file).

This update includes:
- Automatic disabling of the Aero theme whilst kofxiii.exe is running (this increases performance and stability - you can use "-a" to stop disabling Aero [Thanks Sir Miggoh =P])
- Start up crashes addressed

- Spanish text on results screen after an online match were Italian. This has been fixed!

We believe the start up crashes were due to issues with save files. We believe we may have found the cause. So please test, and let us know.

If your game continues to crash:
- Back up and delete your KOFXIII save data from the Steam userdata directory
- Disable steam cloud (temporarily)
- Run KOFXIII and see if this works (as you have no data, it should recreate new data)
- if it works, you can reenable steam cloud (if it was enabled before)

Please let us know if this update has helped!

Thanks everyone!

If you don't want to disable Aero, use the "-a" launch option.

Just like the v1.4 BETA, i get a minor freeze at the main title screen, everything else looks fine.
Loading freezes appear to be gone, but there still some sprites looking weird (Raiden, Joe and Hwa [forehead area], Takuma [alt. costume]/Mr. Karate, Yuri [alt. costume]), and the white line in the middle of the Destroyed Stadium.

**EDIT: i get minor freezes on loading screen in Time Trial, nothing huge, but just a little 3 or 4 seconds stop.
Also, i've been noticing some input delay in offline mode, just like i mentioned in v1.4 BETA.

I can't start the game anymore ! I bought it yesterday (ran perfectly fine) and now I just see an error message as soon as the window is opening (crash).
Any help ?

[edit] I get the game to run only if I select the integrated GPU. It still crashes when I use the other video card (AMD Radeon HD7670M).

I have a problem with this update, in the middle of the fight the fps goes from 60 to 55 and less in training mode...

I followed the steps and the game now runs. However I touch any video option the game crashes.
I was wondering why I was suddenly getting switched to aero....

If your dedicated GPU doesn't work, then there's probably something wrong with it's driver.

It's a transparent desktop theme for windows 7, that might have been slowing down the game for low end computers.

I played from the first beta, i had no problem running. thanks for the Kof Team. :)
Just curious about if there is more option to help newbies get through this hard to start game.
As a always suggested a friend practice lobby can hold more than 3 people in the same room, chat, and play. But anyway, its a good game. Thanks.
Also, thank you for the continued support!

No game disables aero. This addition of disabling aero DOES NOTHING. Now I have to do more HACKS just to play the game right -____-. The taskbar appears over the game now and now I have to click the game or add a shortcut just to play? Kinda rediculous. If a person is having performance problems, it's a hardware problem. A user could have just right clicked on the exe to disable aero. Dumbest 'fix' ever.

I don't see any save files in the game Steamapps folder. What number is the save folder in userdata?

this new UPDATE is really BAD, now turn off AERO from Windows but if put a mouse up of an icon, the game begin with lag...
