Game Update – 0.5.5

Not open for further replies.

General Naga

Pathfinder Games
This week we bring the fifth quality of life update to the game since launch. As we discussed in our feature roadmap article we have been focused on short term bug fixes and responding to feedback over the last few weeks.

We are nearing completion of the short-term features on the roadmap and so will be switching to a longer patch cycle after the release of 0.5.6 next week. The following update, 0.5.7 is expected 3-4 weeks later which will include some new features which require more exhaustive testing than a single week allows.

We are also at work on 0.6.0 behind the scenes but we will talk more about what that brings in the future.

Moving around the Pegasus map tonight 10/5/19 -
footsteps were mostly excellent, and maybe we can expect sloshing for water in the future;
some lights and lamps can be shot out, hopefully the others can be programmed later;
some lights are not casting a shadow;
shadows generally are excellent;
very liked movement over the bridge motor room;
a jump from the bridge platform should not kill a man;
the running should go a lot longer without being out of breath.
Is it time for you to plan to have the game on a PC Gamer magazine DVD or attached to the pdf? There are many opportunities to offer the game download, now it is running a more smoothly.

On Saturday 11/5/19. :coffee:
Joined Merville Battery, day, and had a look round. Very liked the sense of movement around the area and it was immersive. The 'run before breathless' distance is unrealistically short for a para and should be at least doubled.
Glitches and bugs. "Replace me" globe floating near a half track; footsteps on mud sound like tarmac near the half track; fence in the air near an invisible barrier (edge of map).
Please show player position on the map (at Escape) or it's not a map just a photo. Could this have been on the short term fixes?
Crash on exit:
The instruction at 0xde7c15b3 referenced memory at 0x00000040 could not be written.
Fault Module Name: CryLobby.dll_unloaded - probably the same as yesterday's (above).
Please have somebody design a 2019 interface for the game because the content is looking good.
Assuming these posts are being read . . . .
Merville map: tyre texture on lorry is the road; grass growing through crate.
While roaming around, I was shot (very poor grunting sound affect) but there had been no notification of another player joining the server.
Pegasus map: grass growing through trench side.
