Patch Notes 30.04.2019

    Bugfixes



    Game


    • HP display and stats issue when joining mid game - fixed



    Known Issues



    Game


    • DB Error message when joining a server for the first time


      • waiting or restarting the client should fix the issue
    • Visual bug - Character models are not displayed properly during half-time and result screen.
    • Visual bug - The respawn bar isn't filling up when respawning.
    • Visual bug - The PEN and EXP bonuses don't show while on the result screen.
  • I didn't believe it could possible be reverted.


    idk how long it will last but it was finally nice to see today people using cannonade and sharpshooter alongside the rail gun.

    Not to mention Chaser mode finally becoming playable again.

  • Yeah, might seem small but it's a HUGE step. Railgun was breaking the game.

    This one isn't perfect either, but I'd rather have unrewarding headshots for the time being instead of the broken model.

  • good news,

    But how long will it take to fix all these random crash coming out of nowhere ? Because this is the priority right now.


    And do they have a dedicated server in wich they can test and fix weapons balance or bug exploit like Wall shoot or sumsht ?

  • Now the ball in TD is bugged. Once when a player that held it left. Another time i joined a game and it was bugged.

    Cant pick the ball so its basically DM. Its really annoying that i played 20 mins then the game died. Fix pls.

  • I literally can't play.I crashed right at the start of a game six times in a row. Is there anything I can do to reduce the likelihood of a crash?

    For me it gets better after rebooting the computer. Other workarounds that have been suggested are playing one stage of Scenario Arcade or creating a new room and leaving it. It also helps to avoid joining games that have already been started (but this does not apply for you).


    Heiliger was faster :(

  • Found out the railgun is finally being fixed, whereupon I Join game and immediately crash when joining a room.

    Its like dealing with Windows updates with you guys sometimes.

    Exit the server and enter in it again before playing your first match. This will prevent you from crashing until you exit the game.

  • Well after I saw the patch I redownloaded the game. Played the game for 1h and uninstalled it. Not because the railgun is bad, because the game is literally unplayable. I would say "try again" but I'm not really sure if you should. Anyway. Whoever is still playing this game and says he has a fun time in s4 is just lying.

    that its on gun play sadly now you can only play sword match and try just room with low number of player now if you crash on server select search racherito bug fix solution on youtube.

    in patch note (https://s4league.aeriagames.com/news/178393/patch-note-18-07)


    . Railgun:

    - Left Click is now the Normal Fire.

    - Right Click + Hold activates the Sniper mode and starts charging.

    . Left Click while on Sniper Mode to fire.

    . Release to go back to Normal view and stop charging.

    - DMG on Full Charge reduced from 131 to 76

    - Charge Time changed from 3 seconds to 1 second.

    - Magazine changed from 4 to 8.

    - Reloading mode changed from 1 bullet to 2 bullets at a time.

    - CRIT chance on Full Charge is now 30%.

    - Delay Time between attacks from 1 second to 0.65 seconds.

    - Normal Attack DMG reduced from 36 to 18

    - View Angle in Zoom Mode increased from 15 to 25.



    I think you are right.

    but in previous patches, it is based on that.

  • Well I don't really remember what was the case but considering the bomb is 130 dmg and it was the max at that time it wouldn't make much sense the rail gun to be just 1 more.


    Whatever the case is, it won't do much of a difference anyway. Maybe it was 131 to secure a kill with the old stats but it doesn't matter anymore since nowadays everyone is with 140-170 HP (and even with 140 I still get 1hkod by it at times)

  • I got it, and it's busted af.

    I feel bad for using it, thats why I swapped to another rg skin xD


    I hope they fix it with the next patch.

    Beside the OP fact, I wanna use my pretender again without feeling bad c:
