We are pleased to announce the latest update to X Rebirth which takes the game to 64-bit, allowing the game to make better use of your PC's available memory.

See below for more information. • Fixed Secret Service missions constantly reminding player to talk to mission actor. • Fixed campaign progressing unexpectedly when docking at station. • Fixed player occasionally being in wrong position on platform when loading savegame. • Fixed trade offers on player ships/stations occasionally not appearing in trade menu. • Fixed claimed ships not showing up in property menu. • Fixed ships continuing to move when ordered to wait. • Fixed trade orders not being executed when ship has been ordered to wait. • Fixed various cases of drones being unable to dock/return. • Fixed missing docking bay on Wheat Plantation. • Fixed missing container storage on Pharma-Spice Farm. • Fixed missing MK2 weapons after completing plot (you may need to change zones before this kicks in). • Fixed map not showing player stations. • Fixed incorrect positions of some elements on map. • Fixed menu slider controls breaking under certain circumstances. • Fixed controls no longer working when opening ability menu on a platform. • Fixed controller A-button not working after having left the cockpit while an interactive notification was displayed. • Fixed station under construction becoming invisible after Alt-Tab. • Fixed a leak causing savegames to grow slowly in size over time. • Fixed several causes of occasional crashes.
If you encounter serious problems with the 64-bit version and would like to try reverting to 32-bit then you can subscribe to the 32-bit "beta" using the Steam client. To start using the 32-bit version, right-click X Rebirth in the Steam client, select Properties, go to the Betas tab and select release_32 from the dropdown list. If you are running a 32-bit version of Windows you will automatically receive the 32-bit version of the game, though such Windows versions remain unsupported.
Note: The system requirements for the game have always stated that it requires a 64-bit version of Windows, and future updates for the 32-bit version are not guaranteed indefinitely.
Steam does not currently support automatic crashdump upload for 64-bit applications. We are therefore using a third party tool to provide this facility. If there is a crash then a standard crashdump will be created and uploaded to the third party site, from where we can perform analysis to determine the cause. As with Steam crashdumps no personal information is included in these crashdumps.
