Changes:
  • Improved visual quality of unlit areas
  • Increased ambient occlusion
  • The brightness setting slider has been adjusted to be linear and go darker

Fixed issues:
  • Fixed an issue where combat text didn’t show for damaging destructibles
  • Fixed an issue where Blueprints could crash the client
  • Fixed an issue where the Avatar could become emissive after a skill boost
  • Fixed an issue where it could crash the client when switching between tabs in the Entropia Exchange
  • Fixed an issue where the effect of an attachments attachment didn’t work if equipped on an already equipped tool
  • Fixed an issue where it would crash the client when trying to use the make-up system
  • Fixed an issue where colors were switched in the Make-up system
  • Fixed an issue where the error message text position was not adjusted when changing resolution

MindArk and the Planet Partners strive to ensure a smooth and problem-free Version Update. Nevertheless, even after extensive testing some issues may arise after release. Such issues are often addressed via mini-patches directly after a release and in subsequent patches. If you feel that the possibility of encountering minor issues or bugs directly after a Version Update affects your gameplay to an extent that Entropia Universe is not enjoyable, please wait until the mini-patches have been released and any last minute issues have been resolved.

Anyone using Parallels Desktop now have to upgrade to Parallels Desktop 15 because of hard dependency on DirectX 11 or game client will crash on startup :wise:

Please let us put it back into the chat/log instead of IN OUR FACE
Agree except perhaps the server shut down messages

Also can someone please check messages are appropriate to situation, when hunting I really didn't want that Yuka as my disciple anyways. We all accidentally double click sometimes, really not necessary to tell us item busy.

Yes, once again, if you don't screw up the vu for people, you screw up the patch, right before mayhem - not that it matters to most people anyway, right?!
I was already prepared for going through the 95% + background installing already carried out anyway waste of time routine, but then no response from the loader.
Then it compacted my data, then found no direct 3d devices.
How long is it going to be before this works for me again on this computer? Weeks? Really....

And as for the red messages - shut down maybe, yes, but why not like the rather stupid forced pvp one and others when you enter the countdown to safety, which at least appear top left and could maybe be set to either stay until clicked away or disappear automatically like loot notifications do...

Graphics definitely seem better than before on Very High.

Agree with the comments about the Red text. I feel it is useful for new players but an irritation for the majority of us to have every possible system message showing where it is.

I've raised a support case about the screenshot issue I've mentioned elsewhere on the forum and the reduction in resolution options to prior to VU 17.0.0. I hope that those issues can be resolved as quickly as the fixed issues listed above. Fingers crossed. :xmas:

Great work on the speed of the patches MA......it's starting to feel like we're getting there (IMHO anyway). :yay:

Yep, this is a very annoying 'feature' that has been brought in with the new VU. Please remove this, or at least give the option to remove it. :poke:

GOOD JOB MA , before the damn patch the game worked fine for me, just untill I made the damn update and surprise , game won't work now because I keep getting this dumb error : Failed to create D3D device , DXGI_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED: Unsupported.
Like really whats the point to improve the visual aspect of a game if it keeps bugging and screwing some of us with some errors , the devs sleeping or you guys hired some monkeys...

I'm guessing that in their thinking they have something to make it harder for auto-clickers. Keep in mind that those lines don't appear in the chat-log any more.

And that's more important to them than the complaints of the player base. As usual.

----------------------

And for all those with graphics issues, you may want to try -->> the Linux-way <<-- :) :) :)

If that's the reason then they sure screwed up with the F key thing.

There appears to have been a further patch, so you may wish to close client loader and re-open it.

It may fix something.

I had the same error, it is fixed by replacing the video card that supports DirectX 11

Good for you that it worked but, not all of us have the possibility to change our video cards and other stuff from our "old" pc's so we have to complain untill the issue is fixed. My opinion.
