Orphix Venom: Hotfix 29.6.8
 

Ensmallening Part 3: Mesh Accuracy + Sound Fidelity. 

Tenno, 

We bring you Part 3 of the ensmallening. By now you already know about Part 1 and Part 2,but now we will go into how we are changing Mesh Accuracy and Sound Fidelity.

We expect the download size to be 7 GB  with an estimated 3.6 GB of savings overall, meaning the game just got 3.6 GB smaller in file size!  These numbers may vary slightly. 

 

Mesh Accuracy:
A big part of the Ensmallening Part 3 is how Meshes are changing. Not only are we reducing filesize, we are also significantly improving quality.

Look to this Before and After for the improvements you can expect:


BEFORE:
Take care to observe the eyes and mouth and ear details. Jagged details are widespread. 

 


AFTER:
Take care to see the improved contours and details across the Mesh. A much smoother finished piece!

Sound Fidelity:
This one is for the audiophiles! 

We are making some changes to the way we handle encoding of Warframe’s audio. We are replacing xWMA with OPUS and a new ADPCM encoder! ADPCM will provide less noise and brighter mids. It also has improved spatialization so that the full audio mix just feels more alive.

Here is a spectrum plot of sine sweep 20-20k with the new ADPCM encoder above the old. Much improved!

In general, Opus will really improve the way you hear Warframe’s accompanying music. We also expect this to improve general synchronization and any start up lag! Stay tuned for a future Devstream where we go over this in a bit more detail, too, for the audiophiles out there!

 

DTLS Roll-Out

We are testing some new network code out in this Hotfix. Even though we’ve tested it extensively on the Test Cluster we need more coverage!

The primary goal of these changes is to improve networking for Xbox players by replacing some proprietary network code; when these changes make it to Xbox they will enable our automatic proxy service that already helps players with Strict NAT and other network problems on other platforms (this is something we’ve wanted to get to Xbox players for a long time).

The added advantage of this new code is that it should be more secure and more robust on networks that corrupt network packets (we already defend against this to some degree but the new code is more thorough). This won’t make your ping any better but if something is mangling network packets we might be able to avoid it causing bugs in the game.

We’ll be monitoring the roll-out closely and will be able to disable quickly if we encounter problems. Please comment any related issues you have in this thread - thanks!


 

Optimizations:

  • Reduced the number of DirectX12 micro-stutters that would occur mostly right after loading into a new area.

  • Optimized download speed for fresh installs from the Epic Online Store or from the stand-alone installer.

  • Made some micro-optimizations to rendering on all platforms.

  • Made micro-optimizations to DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 rendering.

  • Optimized away several MB of memory used by DirectX 11 to track shaders.

  • Optimized away 7 MB of memory used by DirectX 12 to track shaders.

  • Optimized DirectX 12 shader memory footprint and run-time performance.

  • Fixed memory leak that would occur when running the Enhanced Rendering in DirectX 12.

 

Additions:

  • Lavos/Cedo and their parts can now be purchased from Father’s Wares for Entrati Standing:

    • Lavos Blueprint: Rank 2 - Acquaintance 

    • Lavos Chassis/Neuroptics/Systems: Rank 3 - Associate 

    • Cedo Blueprint: Rank 4 - Friend

    • Cedo Barrel/Receiver/Stock: Rank 5 - Family*

  • Added missing Orphix Venom Leaderboards to the Archived section.

 

Changes:

  • Added a confirmation prompt when selecting to ‘REMOVE ALL’ Mods in the Upgrade screen to alleviate accidental removals. 

    • Accidental removal happened quite frequently when using a controller due to the button to remove a single Mod and all Mods are the same, and is dependent on whether your controller cursor is over a Mod at the time.

  • Tweaked Kuva Lich login Transmission probably so they don’t play at each login.

  • Minor improvements for the Cedo firing animations.

 

Fixes

  • Fixed inability to use Railjack navigation if the mission failed.

  • Fixed Fishing breaking when putting away the Fishing Spear in certain conditions.

  • Fixed Transferring to Operator being temporarily blocked by Warframe landing a Bullet Jump.

  • Fixed zero Damage numbers appearing for unranked Stahlta primary fire.

  • Fixed Stahlta Alt Fire bolts not exploding from Mirage’s Hall of Mirror clones when the Unreal Shock Rifle Skin is equipped.

  • Fixed visual bug where the player firing the Stahltas Alt Fire appears to fire indefinitely if the Unreal Shock Rifle Skin is equipped.

  • Fixed ability to fire equipped weapons during Wisp’s Sol Gate when the Helminth ability Empower is cast prior. 

  • Fixed ‘Rank Up’ HUD not displaying specific item or level while piloting a Necramech.

  • Fixed bindings that have multiple entries showing in the incorrect order (i.e. Ability A would show NUM1 instead of 1 in the Railjack HUD as well as in the keyboard bindings screen).

  • Fixed Deimos Isolation Vault Bounties displaying with "no expiry", when in reality, the rewards do rotate (like the normal Bounties do).

  • Fixed Necramech waypoint not being the standard numbered waypoint.

  • Fixed Bonewidow's shield appearing on other Necramechs in the Arsenal if you were just looking at Bonewidow and it had a Skin equipped.

  • Fixed Eudico’s “reveal” not appearing for her Transmissions despite Old Mate Syndicate Ranking. 

  • Fixed missing Hecaton Shotgun Skin reload animation when equipped on the Cedo.

  • Fixed Pending Friends list not initially showing Mastery Ranks. 

  • Fixed Star Chart music playing underneath End of Mission rewards screen.

  • Fixed enemy ship sounds playing over Quest cinematics.

  • Fixed Codex mission icons having icon transparency where unexpected.

  • Fixed the Chat window rendering behind The Index Mission Progress screen.

  • Fixed autocomplete showing the hint and text you typed, instead of just showing one. 

  • Fixed another case of Terlyast spawn sound persisting when returning to Plains of eidolon from Cetus after spawn has started.

  • Fixed typo in the Mastery Rank Inbox message.

  • Fixed script error that could occur if you died while Fishing.

This part of my life... this part right here? This is called "happyness."!!! 

Thanks for Everything! I love you all!

I think i found a bug or glitch or something like that with Scindo Prime. The original holster style of Scindo Prime was Hammer Holster, but when i use the tennogen skin it just swap to heavy blade holster and make a visual bug, it back to the hammer holster if i dont equip the heavy blade holster but then when i go to mission it sometime glitch in visual that the Scindo Prime poke through my warframe cuz it use the wrong holster style aka heavy blade.

The same happen with tennogen skin for nikana, while in mission it have similar visual bug.

Unless I missed something, what about a new home for the necramech mods introduced with operation orphix venom?

You can still get those mods with bounty rotations I think, or bought from Loid for standing. Unless I'm missing something.

That OPUS upgrade is a very good touch indeed well done. I don't know who in your team came up with the idea but that person deserves a raise really, especially if you know the tech behind each codec.

That being said, I think that no game in this day and age should use ADPCM audio for it's music files.
I mean all of your ADPCM related audio in your data is exclusively the procedurally mixed soundtracks of each stage which is like 30 stereo tracks in total(?) [give or take I don't quite recall]. It's like 5 layers for each tracks mixed real-time depending on what's happening during gameplay.
The issue with ADPCM files is the noise thresshold in  tracks with great dynamic range is suffering really bad.
For example, in Void missions, all of the chanting audio layers suffer from high white-noise, which when added one layer on top of the other, the noise level gets higher and higher.
I mean, obviously. I can understand why you did such choices like so many years ago during the conception of Warframe and it's game engine but at this day and age why not replace them with regular PCM streams? I know this might slightly bring up the size of the game (not alot) but not enough to be considered an issue. Decoding and memory requirements are on par with ADPCM too so I'd like to think that phasing out ADPCM would be the right move.

So all of the open world mining when will be revisited for proper veins 6 different colour for each individual ore? ( Not magical dots on the tiniest hole where the laser couldn't reach it! )
All fishing should be optimized as well same fish should be in the water already, not magically appearing from thin liquid for the group who is in that mission. Dozen of time when "fish" is under the bottom of texture of lake, pond, sea OR even swims into a rock! )
Railjack still nowhere what was advertised on social media about slowly 2 beautiful years ago.
Gunnery:

2 Phantom Eye Augmented reprojection and turret suspensors allows full 360 degree combat engagement.
  • When active, players using the side turret guns will have all visual and turret movement restrictions removed.
  • Does not apply to the forward turrets or the forward artillery.

This one is still not revisited... 134629915_895516274541047_65066147057945
134628677_3694339400605312_1003333102373
134643036_831176040763383_19304254495379

Oh almost forgot to mention...
Would be a really good time to start to fix up a the scripting to the latest engine dear devs!
Best regards!
Wishing all the best and good luck for the fixing!

this patch kinda broke my game. FPS drops on a high end PC. going down to 20 on the orbiter while moving and bullet jumping. missions are very laggy and the game stutters like crazy.

Unless the Wiki is wrong, mods like Necramech Rage, and Necramech Repair are not available anywhere else. 

Yet. But I could be missing something.

I appreciate the work you do for the game and for us! Hopefully things will now look more pristine and run better.

Oh, and in the event it was missed, this ought to get looked at:

Warframe Launcher does not close when starting trough EPIC, after exiting the game the warframe launcher stays open in the task master requiring you to manually End Task it before you can restart it again.

Thx fot the hotfix but the game now plays even worse than before on DX12. I have a 2080 RTX and it still stutters. Still a long way to go. Keep up trying to optimize it. Thx! :)
Also the music I play in the orbiter got cut and then played from the moment of cut. :(

Months of documentation on whipclaw's awful inconsistent interactions and ruined ability synergy still not enough to get this addressed? This frame really is DE's punching bag... 

EDIT: [DE]Ruu provided insight, hopefully this it doesn't get left under the rug.

Actually those did increase(they got bigger like instead of 250ms they got to 1000ms) after update.
