WolfQuest 2.7 Patch Releases

Postby loboLoco » Fri Nov 27, 2015 1:16 pm

The WQ Game Launcher should download this patch automatically (unless you cancel the download). To be sure that you have it, look at the small text at the bottom of the title screen. It should say “Version 2.7p3.” If it doesn’t, go into Settings (gear icon button), and click the Redownload button.

What's New? Alert icons when you have unread messages in your account panel.

What’s Improved?
—Performance improvements to Lost River map, so it should run more smoothly.
—Refinements to Voice+Text Chat: Typing in text field doesn’t activate B-to-Talk or other gameplay functions.
—Phrase Chat panel is larger to fit more phrases, and phrase text size is a bit larger.
—In Messages, message and pack lists should scroll and display properly.
—Problems when you try to rest or sleep in Scent View.
—Wolf sizes are shown properly in multiplayer games.
—Multiplayer lag issues.
—Players won’t lose XP in certain cases in multiplayer games.
—Pasting the Key into the Registration panel won’t add an unintentional “v”
—Elk and stranger wolf scent trails disappear when animals are not around anymore.
—Better instructions to parents for the AgeCheq process.
—Better feedback when registering with no internet connection.
—Pressing “C” to chat while map is open won’t cause problems.
—Other fixes to possible issues with predators during Defend Den mission.

Patch 4 (Version 2.7p4)
Released November 29, 2015

That last patch didn't solve one problem, and created a new one, so here's a new patch, which fixes these problems and a couple others:

- Player names are once again displayed in Phrase Chat
- Packs that you belong to, but do now own, are displayed in Pack List.
- Close Map button properly displayed on Map.
- Phrase Chat panel is now hidden when Hide HUD is selected.

This patch *may* also solve a reported problem with predators appearing too close to the den.

Patch 5 (Version2.7p5)
Released December 7, 2015

Changes and Fixes:
- In multiplayer games, fixed bug with elk freezing and not becoming edible after dying.
- Other player-wolves turn in place in multiplayer games.
- In-game message lengths are now capped, so entire message is visible to recipient.
- More variation in wolf coats of dispersal wolves in social arena.
- Better explanation of Push/Pull Files in File Sync dialog.
- Fixed typo in Login alert.

We have received some reports of the player-wolf disappearing in multiplayer games. We haven't been able to replicate it. If it happens to you, we would appreciate a detailed bug report, especially with a saved-game file that is likely to reproduce the problem on our end. Send it to bugs@wolfquest.org. Thanks!

Version 2.7.2p1, released July 5, 2016.

This patch has a handful of minor fixes and tweaks.

* Improved feedback if player tries to join a game that is full.
* Improved prevention of artificially-colored wolves.
* Cougars on rocky perches are properly networked in multiplayer games.
* Chat window enlarged in Lost River.
* Prevent endless running in multiplayer games while chat panel is open.
* Lightmap corrections in Slough Creek and Lost River.
* Musical flower restored in Amethyst Mountain.

Version 2.7.2p2, released July 6, 2016.

Sorry for yet another patch so soon, but this has a few key fixes:

* Reduced (or possibly eliminated) extreme lag in multiplayer games (for players who have experienced that).
* Reduced lag in the Main Menu (for players who have experienced that).
* Prevent multiple cougars on rocky perches in multiplayer.
* Fixed missing terrain in Slough Creek-Springtime on Fastest quality level.
* Reduced odds of rain in Lost River (until we improve rain performance).
* Dusk and Dawn lighting tweaks in Lost River.

If you're still having extreme lag in the Main Menu, try disabling the little birds that flit around: Press and hold right-shift and the L key, then press the B key. (That will reset after leaving the Main Menu.)
