5.4 Hotfixes

Recommended Posts

"The term hotfix was originally applied to software patches that were applied to live i.e. still running systems."

I'll probably always be making this apology, but here goes... sorry for the lateness of these notes! While the content team was cranking on the next big update our coders (myself included) were chasing crashes and offline contact bugs. Things are starting to calm to a pleasant 'blistering insanity' level of urgency. Here is a list of all the ninja updates we did this week. Can't thank you guys enough for your patience with us as we smash our match-making and chased those loot-devouring crash bugs.

Hotfixes since 5.4

-Fixed a long-standing memory corruption bug that was the cause of many random crashes.

-Mod drop levels determined by enemy killed not your inventory. No more farming Mercury for level 30 Mods.

-Foundry enforced player level requirements. Fix checks for unranked players.

-Minimap rendering changed to use navigation mesh. Necessary for upcoming environment. Work-in-progress...

-Preliminary in-game update message when updates are pushed (working on getting this to sync better with our CDN).

-Hardware failure check to detect problems due to faulty RAM, overclocking instability, heat problems.

-Signin rewards UI shows required days to reach tiers.

-Added fallbacks when trying to join a session that ends while joining.

-Fix chosen Artifacts cards not showing promptly in Front-end.

-Fix double cameras after host migration.

-Fix crashes in AI and animation.

-Fix Corpus laser door networking issues.

-Fix over-bloom on characters.

-Fix for doors/elevator problems with join-in-progress.

-Improvements to prevent accidental selling in Inventory. Work-in-progress...

-Fix rockets and redirectional power.

-Energy cost changes for Volt and Ash.

-Launcher can now resume bulk downloads if the connection to CDN times out.

-Fix network problem with other player showing shield > 100%.

-Dojo enemies now scale up in level. Work-in-progress...

-Fix elemental effects not showing on Scindo, Frago and many crafted Swords and Daggers.

-Energy pickups are now shared with other players. More energy in Coop!

-Fixes for Volt overload being over-powered, then under-powered. Does radial damage as well.

-Fix quit exploits with Alerts.

-Fix revive from Pause menu.

-Prevent join-in-progress of late-stage missions.

-Relax video card restrictions in Launcher.

-Fix Artifacts not applying with join-in-progress.

-AI will not incorrectly target Turrets anymore.

-Update APEX libraries to improve Nvidia PhysX Effects stability.

-Add help option for chat commands.

-Fix Shotgun Ammo Pack reward being 0.

-Fix disarm exploit for some bosses.

-Fix for Contacts list not working when you have large number of Contacts/Clan members.

-Additional attack animation for Scindo and Frago

-Alert enemy levels are now using their region level range.

-Stamina Mods for Warframes added.

-Fix Corpus Security Cams being alert when they shouldn't. Work-in-progress...

-Fix chat window input text being erased as presence changes came in.

-Fix Warframe Armor Mods being most common type.

-Disabled non-XInput joystick enumeration that was causing instability.

-Improvements to 'massive lag' problems caused when a client re-joins a session they had left.

Ah that sucks - what region are you in? Seems like a bunch updated ok... open a support ticket up and attach your Launcher.log (%LOCALAPPDATA%/Warframe)? support.warframe.com

So i had a question about the MODS fix.

Say i am doing missions in Pluto whose lvl range is 30+. Will this make me get almost all Mods in the lvl range of 30~? For example can i get a specific mod like say~ A Bolto Mod of lvl 30~ even though my Bolto is like 1 or i may even not have the weapon in my Inventory?

Agreed, nice fixes.

Although, it seems like you changed the minimap size a bit, but forgot to align the "enemies" text in extermination missions, and it now is half-covered by the minimap.

I can provide a screenshot if necessary.

Don't know about you guys, but the game is over for me.

Its over because they did necessary adjustments to Volt?

Pretty pathetic reason to stop playing a free game because of some changes to a warframe if you ask me...

Really GREAT fixes! :D

I am really surprised these are being rolled out so fast, Warframe looks more promising every day!

Thank you for your hard work!

I just had 55-60 lvl enemies in an alert mission. Barely finished using all 4 of revives for that warframe (rhino, 30, heavily armored). I was playing alone. It was sabotage so it was doable, very hard but still. Any other 'non-hands free' mission like Spy would be impossible. Haven't you overdone it a bit?

55-60 lvl enemies? Quite high. I don't mean to $#*(@, but at this difficulty the game becomes pretty much unplayable solo. This still would be okay if only difficulty or at least enemy levels would be shown at alert briefings, so a solo player doesn't have to face a F*** up to actually learn its a F*** up.

Well the game is a Co-Op Shooter. Usually the zone the alert mission is in gives you a pretty good estimate of what you'll be up against, especially the mission the alert is on. But it would be good if the alert mission description itself displayed the enemy level range.

1~4 players.

I'm sure they'll balance it so it's soloable and still fun with 4 people. It's an ongoing process.

Also, I just tried to solo a pluto infested defense alert. Ends up with 3 ancient disruptors wailing at the pod, which does no damage at all. And then the toxic ancient I was kiting around the upper floor lost interest in me and join the pod hitting fun. Pod went from 100% to 0% in less than 30 seconds.
