UPDATE

Greetings MechWarriors,

Boom! Banshee is here! The “La Malinche” Banshee hero leads the charge of this Assault Mech. This Hero ‘Mech is available now for MC and comes equipped with serious fire power and 30% C-Bill boost. The Standard Variants of the Banshee chassis will be available for MC on the 11th and C-Bills on the 18th.  The same goes for the Wolverine! Soon you will be able to pilot this Phoenix collection 'Mech which will be available for MC on the 11th and C-Bills on the 18th.

We have a new Champion in our line up of trial mechs. The Cataphract CTF-3D© take it for a spin and decide if this mech is for you. It will be available for MC on the 11th and comes with a 10%XP boost so you can level this mech fast.

DirectX 11 is now supported! So if you have a DirectX 11 capable video card check out your video options. We will continue to add and enable DX11 features within the game and content as we move forward.

Turret! Turret! The rest of the Assault maps have had turrets added to them so be careful out there.  Jump jets get an overhaul and it looks like some of us will need to add some J.J.'s back into our mechs.

There are a hand full of great bug fixes as well so read on!

See you on the battlefield,
Matt Newman

DX11
  • DirectX 11 is now supported.

Front End
  • Tutorial popup will trigger once per user. This is stored in the user directory and will be triggered again if the user folder was deleted or reinstalled.

Performance
  • Default system setting set to Medium.
  • Please note that enabling MSAA in DX11 can drop fps by 20+ fps this is an expensive technique for high end PCs.

Gameplay
  • All maps now have turrets in Assault Mode.
  • Jump Jet Fixes and Updates:Jump Jets will now have slower turning rates based on the class of Jump Jets equipped and the 'Mech's base turning speed.
  • Heavies and Assaults will notice this the most as they will not be able to snap turn as fast as they used to.
  • Medium 'Mechs will barely notice the change.
  • Light 'Mechs will not notice any change.


There is now a significant difference between bringing full Jump Jets and 1 Jump Jet and there is a linear scale to them based on the number equipped to the 'Mech.

The issue of 1 Jump Jet providing nearly the same amount of thrust as 3 Jump Jets is no longer the case.
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where large Friends lists took a long time to display.
  • Weapon Range Modules now affect Artemis Weapons.
  • Testing Grounds are now affected by players' Pilot Modules and Mech Efficiencies.
  • Devices now enumerate correctly on Windows 8 using DX11.
  • Window Sizes now work correctly on Windows 8 using DX11.
  • Fixed a bug in the hardware skinning shader that could impact Radeon Users.
