Release Notes - Patch #8

Postby Drildgen » 14 July 2016, 17:40

Hello Everyone,

We are releasing today the 8th patch (v1.3.4.5) for Mordheim: City of the Damned.

We would like to thank the Mordheim community who helped us tremendously in fixing some of the hardware issues encountered with the last patch. Also a big thank you to everyone for their patience.

This version of the game has been built for DirectX 11 and DirectX 9, while previous versions were built only for DirectX 9. This should prevent crashes with certain video card drivers. These kind of issues are always difficult to track down and fix since they can be caused by various components on which we have limited visibility and control, like the engine or video card drivers. Rest assured that we'll always do our best to resolve these as quickly as possible.

This patch's size is a bit larger than 3GB unfortunately. This is caused by the switch to DirectX 11.

We hope you will enjoy these improvements, and look forward to seeing you fight in the dark streets of Mordheim: City of the Damned.

Known Issues​
- Pyre of Righteous: If you reload a save game after a Pyre of Righteous has disappeared, it will still be there. This will not be the case if the Pyre is destroyed.

​- GUI appearance: The timing of GUI appearance, after certain actions, might be longer on the procedural maps

Special Notes
- If your video card does not support DirectX11, or if you encounter any other problems, you can try launching the build in DirectX9 by setting the following launch options: -force-d3d9
(Right-click > Properties > General tab > Set Launch Options > enter -force-d3d9 > Ok)
