Hit Detection

Increased server-side tolerance for hit detection on human weapons and vampire melee attacks. In-game cheat detection was generating some false positives that caused hits to fail in certain scenarios.

This should help some of the reported issues with hit detection, but we will need to continue monitoring the situation. If you continue to see persistent issues with hit detection, please note specifics (type of attack in particular) in a bug forum thread.





Flashpoint

Flashpoint will be available for a limited-time game event, with a few improvements made to the mode. We have implemented a few changes to spawning, and the scoring system and UI have been tweaked. Please share your feedback with us after trying the mode out.

It will be available as a public playlist from June 18th (today) through June 21st (Sunday), during this timing window each day:


2pm – 7pm EST / 7pm – 12am BST


To check local timings, please use this page (http://www.worldtimebuddy.com/event?lid=14&h=14&sts=23909700&sln=19-24&a=show).
During times when the event is NOT live, you'll get a popup saying the playlist is disabled.



Optimization


Significantly reduced memory overhead in gameplay maps related to character skins and Scaleform UI. This may also improve performance for some users.
Fixed a bug preventing precomputed visibility from working in The Crucible. This should result in a noticeable performance improvement.




Private Match


Private Match games will no longer consume "Charge" on Uncanny, Arcane, Mysterious, or Unique items.




Exalted Iron Guard


The Exalted Iron Guard Hunter skin is now available inside the Exalted Treasure of the Kings.




Team Preview

We've added a new screen at the start of a round, showing off your team line-up




Bugs


Fixed the Crosshair sometimes appearing off-center
Fixed an issue with Steam Achievement tracking introduced in the last patch
Fixed various spawning issues including humans sometimes spawning on rooftops
Fixed an issue causing some users to get stuck in a "Syncing Profile..." loop when joining a game
Fixed an issue that rarely caused some of your inventory to appear missing
Fixed an issue with the last shot in a Scout's clip not causing full draw damage
Fixed a broken grapple point in Freeport

You mentioned in the other thread that the issue where capturing starts before the match timer does was being looked at, but it's not in today's list. Did that get pushed back?

Also, have you posted any screenshots of the Exhaulted Iron Guard yet? I saw some recently, but I might be thinking of the Scout.

It's not outlined specifically, but in the Flashpoint section I mention that there were changes to spawning, it does include that one. I believe the spawning issues were all cleared up, but there's a chance you might run into one here or there, so that's something we'll keep an eye on with this test. And yep, shot of the Hunter skin coming up... :)

That was separate from the spawning issues. It was the capturing one relating to whether the timer had started or not.

Do you mean capturing at the start of a round, before the match started? If so, yes, that's covered on the spawning issues as well. If something else, let me know and I'll check.

We should actually be back up really soon, will post a reply once we're up again. Won't be long.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I just didn't think it had anything to do with the spawning. I suppose simply not spawning next to a capture point would fix it indirectly, but adding explicit checks to the timers would have be the more reliable fix. Anyway, that's the bug I was referring to.

Cool for a update.
When can we expect 1 new map or more?? Is there a hope for that?

I think we'll hear the name of the map before we get a date, but it would be nice to know that one is in the works. The last I heard (in the twitch feed) was that it's not the Dumahim territory. I'd like to know if the Rahabim has left the talking stage yet too. Is there at least a feature list or design doc or something. I don't need to see those things, but like the map, it would be nice just to know they exist.

Very good :)
But why Flashpoint cannot be accessible any time? :S

I have updated the patch notes above (again), as the Hunter skin has made it into the Exalted chests. Here's a screenshot:

We didn't get that one in in time, so it'll be early next week. It'll get awarded automatically to everyone that had an Immortal pack then. I'll keep you guys posted once it's in :)

There has been a delay on our Flashpoint event starting, sorry for the inconvenience, folks! It'll be at least an hour later, for now.

While the mode is offline, you'll get a popup indicating it's not available when you click on it. It'll be at least an hour before we can get it online (this won't affect the other days, just this initial start).

Nope, so far I noticed it in 2 or 3 different matches, but my name vanished both times after my first death I think....


On another note, this patch is rly rly good I think my fps went up bei 10 and even seem more stable, the whole game feels more smooth too (meele with vamps especially).

Thank you very much Psyonix, very good work here ;3

I just want to say how I love the dramatic spawn line up in FP. It's very cool indeed! :D

The bug fixes seem good :)

Sadly though still didn't see any improvement on the FPS in game, it's still remained at the same as the last patch which is a shame. It is however much better in the UI/Lobby.

Don't forget the bug where you can't accept my invites without me being in a lobby. I think you've had that one from the start.

Flashpoint spawns points seem better now, good change. However, the stuttering caused by the build up of the fire noise has still not been fixed after so many months...

Somehow the game gets more buggy and broken for me with each new patch. Now I can't play pretty much due to crashes and even a blue screen incident when using the in game web browser to watch a youtube video while waiting for a match to start... :S The game has just decided I am not worthy of entry to the wonderful land of Nosgoth. :/

Good job!

i still have hitreg problems, especially as prophet. always the same when it happens. i hit someone, hear the sound healthbar etc. but bullets dont get registered and people on the other side cant even see me shooting. its getting worse if i play on us-server with like 100 ping, but i think in this case its due to nosgoth not using interpolation. but even in a privat lobby with around 40ms i had few situations where i couldnt hit 10+ shots even if i didnt hold mouse1 to shoot.

Have you been in touch with support yet?
I'd recommend doing that so they can escalate the issue, and get some log files from you.

And just to check, have you done a clean install of the game yet? By "removing local content" through Steam and then downloading and installing the game again.

The log files they'd need you to gather up are:


Launch.log - which can be found in C:\Users\XXX\Documents\My Games\Nosgoth\BCMPGame\Logs
ph.log - which can be found in \nosgoth\BCMPGame\Logs\Phosphorous\ (actual file path depends on where you install your games)


For crashing issues the launch.log file should be enough though.

Trying to reinstall the game now. If it crashes after that I will contact support with the files.
