Hello,

The patch will update all versions of the game in all standard languages (EN-UK, EN-US, DE, ES, FR, IT)

You can also download the patch in a compressed zip file from 2K Games here.

I will edit this post to update with links of alternative places to download the patch from.

•Various multiplayer gameplay optimisations
•Real-Time Shadows, Bloom, Anisotropic Filtering and Anti-aliasing implemented.
•Map transfer in multiplayer lobby implemented.

Game Balancing

•Fire ballistae no longer auto fire, and targets must be selected manually (does not apply to tower mounted ballistae)

Bug Fixes

•Fixed multiple troops pushing ladders off walls repeatedly.
•Fixed bug which allowed tower mounted siege equipment to be built whilst an enemy was in close proximity.
•Auto-scrolling chat in multiplayer game lobby now fixed.

Thanks
CaptSkubba and The FireFly Team

Wahoo! It's finally here!

I'm sorry, but I'm already having a problem... I can't download the patch. Whenever I try to update it the game freezes, then I try to cancel the patch, and my computer locks up. Why is it doing this?

Hmmm, sounds strange. Are you using a firewall like Zone Alarm ? or are you in Windows Vista by any chance?

Try it again, and when you click to download the patch, press ALT+TAB and see if any messages are appearing on the desktop from Windows, for example, asking if you want to allow permission to download form a certain location etc.

I will turn off my Firewall, but I have AltTabbed already, and no message comes up.

I have turned off my firewall and it still does not want to download..

Heads Up... for those of you who own a legal copy and have dispensed with the need for CD2 by opting for emulation, you will have to start using your CD2 disk again, or role back the patch (which involves uninstalling SH2)

CaptSkubba,

All I can say is sweet! I just played the editor for about a half hour. I have never played it without it crashing on me at some point, this was a blast.

Thanks for posting about this I know alot of people were waiting for this.

Cool

Now next patch can you make it so that balista do not shoot through the walls of a tower, or from those expensive ones that your not supposed to be able to get hit by projectiles lol

SirWhiteWolf, I really don't know what might be happening there. How long are you waiting to see if it downloads (I know thats maybe a silly question) because it is over 100 meg so it may take a while before it shows its at 1%.

I am waiting about 10 mins before closing it. I'm going to try again later today though. This time I'll wait until something happens, however long it may be.

Downloaded and installed.

It runs very well now. I will miss the autofire on the ballista. I don't play MP, and on large maps I would use them at choke points so I could concentrate on other areas. Ah well, it was a bit of an exploit anyway. The fix on the ladder pushing makes a huge difference. That was one of my largest complaints about the game.

Thanks Firefly for delivering the new patch as promised. Hopefully people will take note of this example of honesty in customer service and not so readily dismiss similar offerings in the future.

Awesome!

Now can I hope and pray for a 1.3 Legends patch?

Probably not, but hope springs eternal they say.

Does anyone els see like 50 blank games when they go to multi player? Then you scroll down to find like 10 actual games but some of them seem to be duplicates?

SirWhiteWolf I had to do a fresh install on mine. I uninstalled my game and reinstalled it, then it automaticly downloaded. Try that.

Now this is getting REALLY annoying! Even after uninstalling it and reinstalling it, it still wont download. (And no I'm not using vista.) Is there any possible way that someone could send me the patch in an e-mail? If so it would be greatly appreciated! (My e-mail is, qzar3456@comcast.net)

I have exactly the same problem. It is possible to join those games on the end of the list, but al the rest doesnt work. I installed the patch manual. How can i fix this?

Thanks in advance,

Bassie
