Patch 1.06 Notes (July 15)
Happy Tuesday from Rise of Nations HQ!

We released a new patch today that contains some of the game improvements you all have been asking for. Thank you to everyone who continues to provide feedback and report bugs. Remember, when reporting bugs, include as much detail as possible, any repro steps, and any relevant screenshots or replay files. Doing so is extremely helpful in the bug squashing process.

We'll see you online!

Patch Notes

Who is in the lobby?

  • On the old lobby screen, users were limited to seeing how many people were in a particular lobby, but not who was in that lobby. Users can now hover over a lobby and a pop-up will appear with a list of players currently in it.

Lobby chat sytem

  • We've been monitoring your feedback closely and implementing your suggestions into our new lobby layout and design. Now, users will be able to chat in one centralized location, allowing for easier communication between users.

User info

  • Users will now see a box next to the lobby chat screen containing information on people in the lobby with them, such as ELO scores, games played, etc.

Increased Twitch stability

  • We've implemented fixes to improve Twitch integration performance based on user feedback.

Zoom level in replay

  • We've implemented a new feature when viewing a replay in which users can zoom the camera out further than they have been able to previously.
  • We thought this would allow the users to better understand the game and see all movements happening when viewing a replay.

What's not in this patch?

Last week, we posted the 'upcoming patch notes', referencing today's patch: http://steamcommunity.com/app/287450/discussions/0/46476145679882046/. However, the BGRA support fix did not make it into this patch.

As mentioned, early versions of DX10 deprecated the use of BGRA (making the support optional) despite it being supported in previous versions of DirectX.

Although later versions of DX reintroduced the support, it appears that some DX10 cards do not currently support implemented in hardware for BGRA texture creation. This results in the "Could not create texture error" that users like OMG U Kill Kenny! and Keefus Maximus are seeing.

Although we have a fix in place, it did not get into this patch as there are a few knock-on issues, like:

  1. In Conquer the World, the minimap colors in the top-left do not match the colors on the main map.
  2. Blips that appear on the minimap in game need to be RBG flipped.

These are just the issues that we've noticed thus far, and we didn't feel comfortable releasing a fix that we're not confident about.

You all have been very patient, and rest assured, we are still working towards getting this fix in for you soon.

Very quick suggestion steve,

I would say chat shouldn't have who entered or left the lobby, see how it can be spammed with just that:

Also I would say, taunts shouldn't play in Lobby. They can be very spammy, For ears as well as the chat.
Thanks for releasing the patch. Great job guys.

Is there a possibility to have further zoom in normal gameplay?

agreed with KAN. at least, an option to turn off the notification for people joining and leaving the chat. it swamps up the window too quickly

otherwise great job on this stuff!

Yes easily fix. Please implement this fast. We can see who is leaving and entering from the player list on the right.

Great patch overall, huge impovement. Big thanks to the developers. There are some bugs with the patch that need to be fixed. I will list few here and add them as I find more:
  • Players randomly entering and leaving the list (even through they are present in a game). There are stability issues with the player list.
  • Players leaving and entering games doesn't need to be explicitly stated
  • When hosting a game, the global chat is being spammed with "Joining Lobby Chat #1... Lobby Chat joined." It only needs to be stated once and not keep repeating itself every few seconds.
Once again, good work developers. You guys are almost there.

Kanishka is right about taunts and players who entered or left the lobby.

Or reset them from start so we know it's working properly.


EDIT: Ok so I played one team game, and won it and I got loss. So there is some bug in it.

Guys BEAUTIFUL patch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well done!
btw... I was gonna point a big bug or whatever it is to u guys.

BUG:
when a player is in the lobby and joins any game, in the lobby chat- it says that the player left the lobby . Thus making the lobby chat filled with "name- has left" Id suggest you guys make it so that players can join and leave games without them dissapearing from the lobby window.

is it possible? ill let you guys do the work!

Would love an option to bind the keys for panning up/down/left/right across the map. Right now you can only scroll with the mouse at the edge or use the cursor keys and the key bindings options don't have an entry for it.

have you looked in options? You can set every key to whatever u want! try and find it set a key . does that work?

here is a picture that confirms people leaving the lobby should not be showing in lobby.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=286618791


And please remove the taunts in main lobby, this will cause the noobs/newbies to spamm numbers and irritate the Sh*t out of players in lobby, because i even tried minimizing my game, it still played the taunts in the background!

this is realy weird and bad. LOL Just pointing these out so they can get fixed.
