Epic is very glad to announce that UC2 Upgrade #1 is now available.

I know you haven't heard anything about it for a while, and we're sorry about that; we've been incredibly busy around here, and we thought it would be better to take what time we had to work on fixing stuff rather than posting about it. ;)

So, what will it do? I'm glad you asked! Here's the official 'fixed' list for UC2 Upgrade #1; I've bolded the one that most of you are probably most interested in. ;)

Gameplay changes:

• Fixed team kills being counted for Weapon Master
• Fixed winning a TDM round by the Weapon Master bonus causing it to count as two rounds won instead of one
• Fixed issue where if a player was standing on the enemy flag base and a teammate captured the flag to win the round, the flag would get into an invalid state
• Fixed the extremely rare sniper rifle freeze
• Added the ability to play DM on Overdose maps
• Fixed issue with lightest characters using a slower speed.

Graphical changes:

• Fixed "Loading" text being outside the safe zone for the second splitscreen viewport during pre-join dynamic loading
• Fixed characters being stuck in the T-pose after round cycle
• Fixed static meshes in DM-AcidRain improperly disappearing during a split-screen match
• Fixed spectator camera going into first-person view in UC Classic mutator

Networking changes:

• Fixed user unable to join session with all private slots when joined by accepting a cross-title invite
• Fixed clients getting stuck if kicked while precaching the next map
• Fixed the inability to activate split-screen after choosing to join a friend's Xbox live match while in split-screen mode, then backing out to the main menu
• Fixed a loading freeze that would happen sometimes under extremely bad network situations while joining a server
• Fixed a rare problem related to a client sometimes not closing its connection properly
• Fixed an extremely rare freeze when transitioning to a new match on the same server
• Changed the order client connections are serviced to prevent clients with poor connections from being skipped due to network saturation, which aids lower bandwidth clients when the server is under stress
• Major reduction to server outgoing bandwidth, which should reduce lag issues significantly
• Tweaked the default client network speed


Miscellaneous fixes:

• Fixed radioactive glow not going away on round reset when using the radioactive mutator
• Fixed occasional ghost players visible after round change
• Fixed Warrior Spirit not showing the proper description when Raiden uses it
• Fixed unable to bypass the controller removal message if the second player in split-screen removes their gamepad at the same time that the game travels back to the menus
• Updated some localization text

So there you have it. Again, sorry it's been so long; thanks for keeping faith.

Thanks for that guys. There are a few things missing like the wraith/homing issue which can be frustrating but this will do fine for now.

Yes finally, maybe I wont quit playing this game for a much longer time now :). My faith in Epic is restored.

Best additions-

DM playable in OD maps! Sick!

Less Lag.. pretty self-explanatory

Faster light characters- now Lauren and Calypso are actually playable!

What the hell does that mean? 2 players on live?

legacy-XoVeNmiTsX
07-25-2005, 08:46 AM
is there one on there where we dont freeze or ghost?

btw, my fav update is the OD maps available for DM. SWEETNESS those maps are some of the coolest in the game!

also do our stats get reset? i dont like the look of 890 D/C's[face_wink]

legacy-Carn4ge
07-25-2005, 08:48 AM
Yea, I hate to sound like an ass and maybe I just missed it, but the only thing that concerns me is that my xbox freezes on this game every 15-30 mins or I glitch out of the map if it takes too long.

Were these addressed?

legacy-Fierce
07-25-2005, 09:00 AM
• Unlocked downloadable maps CTF-Monoxide and DM-Sever
• Unlocked downloadble ‘alt’ characters Apophis, Calypso, Jackhammer, Judas, Kraag, Syzygy. When highlighting a character for play, hit (X) to swap to their alternate character.


What does that mean? I doesn't make sense.

Or maybe it's something like: the upgrade will be available in next OXM to offline players, but they will only get half of the DLC and the rest of the DLC in upgrade #2...

But it's a nice upgrade, Epic (especially DM playable on OD maps). THX!

yes MS is completly slow, and like this game, are bound to overlook about everything.

Technically, if they tested the patch as much as this game, the patch would make things worse.

This is the fastest I have ever seen people post to one topic!! Anyways! I hope this helps.

I totally agree on the stat post just now. Stats in this game are retarded! If there are going to be stats at all they should be based of of experience or something that can be more fair and not cheated so easily.

legacy-BlackKnightOfH8

HALO 2 DIES FOREVER SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MWUAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA [face_angry] [face_skull] (not that i hate halo 2, but seriously why go back if lag is actually going to be GOOD now? :D :D :D)

(And btw Epic...wanna make Ictus the unofficial community relations guy for the board, or any other one guy at least? :) If for nothing else than further improvements to put in for Upgrade #2 that the community can point out ;) )

<3 To Epic!!!!! [face_rose] God willing it will be out before the summer is done :D

Here's to UC2 becoming that much closer to realizing its full potential as one of the best online experiences EVER created!! *cheers*

It won't stop, most of the people will want more characters and maps after this.

I think this is the last downloadable thing we are getting.

legacy-RorixBladewing
07-25-2005, 11:13 AM
Funny how you say the complaining won't stop, and then you yourself complain. Personally, I think that once the lag is fixed, peole won't complain nearly as much. Sure, some are still going to complain, but the main community won't.

legacy-Mr_Lemur
07-25-2005, 12:37 PM
My Favorite:

"Fixed an extremely rare freeze when transitioning to a new match on the same server"

I especially like the use of the term "extremely rare"

I guess that makes me special?


Anywho, thanks for your efforts epic - hopefully it will be out before my 3-month XBL subscription runs out, because I ain't renewing it if it does.

L.

Edit: Sadly I doubt this will this patch will make the game more enjoyable for me. While my Verizon DSL 756/128 connection is great for UT/PC gaming I don't think It will ever be enough for UC2 on XBL. No more glitching will be nice, but lagging is not likely to change (for me) unless they really overhauled the netcode.

legacy-AntiSuperStar
07-25-2005, 01:57 PM
I hope the 'Epic' bashing now ends. We should all be thankful they had there ears open to us. I had faith in them the whole time. Sides, if this game died/failed due to lack of patches, I always had Unreal2k4. : )

Thank You Epic for the new Patch. I look foward to it.

legacy-sicsicsic
07-25-2005, 02:55 PM
thanks epic, looking forward to the upgrade.

i hope that if this upgrade doesnt fix some certain issues that the next one will.

for example, the warrior spirit and berserk not working properly when playing online, and with the wraith not working properly online. and any other things that you can do in instant action but not online.

imo, i think the lag, glitches and freezes are my main concern, but those differences i mentioned really do effect the unreal gameplay. so i would definitely like to see those fixed also.

Dude...anyone else notice how there were a LOT more servers up today? And in just about every game I was in, the buzz was flying about the new patch :D

I think it's possible the community is already getting some new life breathed into it from this announcement alone....

Might be a good indication of how great a response this will get from the community :) In any case....it can't hurt, so long as they glitch/bug checked it good :D Can't wait can't wait can't WAIT!!! :D

By playable I meant a Selket like Calypso and not a Gorge like Calypso in terms of speed. Same goes for Devastation, as they are now there speed really makes then not worth while.

A glitch that not many know about is in CTF- Aqueduct. Some players seem to suicide themselves for no apparent reason. Player could be walking, jumping, & charging, when all of a sudden the player gets killed saying xxxx has been obliterated. I'd stay out of CTF-Aqueduct until they fix it.

No Acid is right, mainly only Aquaduct. It happens all the time you're running after the flag carrier and die on the spot for no reason. Counter you're probably seeing that when you have no life left and jump from a high distance "leaving a small crater"

CounterZeus
07-26-2005, 04:44 AM
but it did happen once in an OD-game (I think I've even said that somewhere on the forum) and in CTF-Octane.

PS: I do check the death messages [face_shame_on_you]

That's not going to happen, they'd have to redo some XBL stuff. ANd if you think server whores are bad now, when there are leaderboards it'd be even worse. Clans aren't necesarry for this game, if you want you can set one up third party.

It wont be back on the top 25 list.If it did, it would rank like 24 or 25. That list does not mean much anyway. I mean just about everything on that list has a real single player campaign as well as multiplayer and Xbox live aware counts as a connect just as much as a multiplayer game does. UC2 single player is not for much more than unlocking characters.

Yeah that doesn't say anything :P i quit playing Fable looooooong ago when i beat it within the first day of having it... its wayyy too short for me. I also even tried 'owning' everything, but after buying this one town [literally the whole town] i dont do much other than just sleep 2 times, and collect money in the morning. That doesn't really feel like i'm playing anything. It kinda feels like i'm playing the sims now only they pay me money or theyd die. I've actually got to the point where i used to kill all the townspeople but now i'm thinking... Dead people don't pay no bills.

I understand you are talking weekly but the weekly games are what makes up the all time list also. Fable used to be in that weekly list and ranked very high.

Single player action helps that list as much as multi does.

Crimson Skies ranks 17 on the list right now. I was in crimson skies one day last week and it was very hard to find a single server. I put my UC2 disc back in and found games pretty damn fast.

The list is not based on multiplayer gameplay. it's based on time played on both xbox live and single player with xbox live aware active.

ShakaM, thas b/c szalor owns everyone. My brother's first time playing the game, he was szalor, used melee only, bladeburst over predator. He still jump dashed to start every attack. He won aswell. But some devestation player was in the game with him using head turret and a stinger. So he just spammed reflect while attacking the devestation player. and all the other shots that came after him, flak, snipers, ripjacks were all getting pushed aside. would get multi kills with just the left trigger. People need to not attack szalor with 2 bars of adren and the reflect button as his main weapon.

How is someone a ''n00b'' for using melee? Melee is apart of the game. Your just mad because they keep owning you with that melee and you can't counter it. If your so good then you will find a way to counter that melee and make sure your the one that does not die. Do I make a point?

Frank,

Can you tell me if this is fixed- For some reason I get the message during a game, "You have been disconnected from Xbox Live, would you like to Troubleshoot the system?" Just a few minutes ago it kicked me out 3 times! I wasn't able to play online, is this fixed? Its never happened during another game.I can't say for sure, there's any number of reasons you could be getting disconnected from Live. I think if it is the game, it's certainly possible it could've been fixed, what with all the networking tweaks we did.

So I guess the answer is "I hope so." :)

This time it's looks good, Murphy.

The Upgrade #1 unlocks 6 of 10 downloadable characters and 2 of 4 maps (sever and monoxide). This doesn't make sense, unless there would be an offline version. So people without XBL get the upgrade (maybe with OXM) and only the half of the DLC with it. Maybe the rest of the DLC (Necris Selket, Evil Hands, etc.) will be unlocked for offline players in a second upgrade.

It's a rumor, but it would make sense.

Sounds like someone is getting owned pretty bad in the game by everyone they come across.

It's not because they are n00bs. It's because YOU can't counter them. Don't take it out on every else by calling them ''n00bs'' just because you can't counter what they do to you. You sound like one of those people that name off everything you can do in the game and call it ''n00b'', and the only way they could not be such ''n00b'' to you is if they stand still and do nothing.

Well I have something I would like. The ability to spectate in dedicated mode. I think this is just about the only game with a dedicated mode that the host can't spectate. And it should not be too hard would it? They already have a type of spectator mode in survival so wouldn't they just have to tweak it a bit to work for the host? I doubt it would happen but I know I would make dedicated servers more often if I had that(I still make one every few days and let it run for quite a while but I would make them more often which would be good) More dedicated servers are always good. I doubt it will happen though.

One question though. When they say you can play DM on overdose maps can you play team deathmatch on them also? If not then I would like that.

2) Experienced, and honing in 1 or a combination of some tactics
3) Experienced, and trying some new things

I thought of another one that I would like although I don't know if it is a possiblity. I doubt it is one because this is probably something a bit more to do with live so I don't know if they could add it, but it would be nice. When someone invites you you can press a button or something and get some info on the game. At least show what sort of game type it is. Although I doubt that could happen because that probably has something a bit more to do with live then this game but it would be nice.

^That is so true^

I remember once I had just joined a game. The host was this person named Morningrise. I am normaly a ripjack guy but I thought I would play around a bit so I selected the flak cannon. Well in the first minute of me playing I killed the host with it. Right away he starts crying to me how I am a flak whore and says, "If you use that again I am going to ban you!" Also calls me a noob a few times. I killed him again with it and guess what? He banned me.

I HATE the word noob. Mainly because it really makes no sense. In this case how am I a flak whore because I killed one person with? I picked the weapon, and if I find explosive ammo I will use it! Just because I picked that weapon once suddenly I am a noob who can't get a kill without using that weapon.

Did he catch the Poison Cloud Bug? I know for a fact it doesn't work in Instant Action. I've heard it works on live but I know it doesn't work on instant action. The moment they step outside the cloud the no longer lose damage.

What may confuse some people is that they still have that green mist above their head and they leave the cloud so they assume they are losing damage but they are not. Poison Cloud should effect the after they step outside the Cloud, just like the other poisons in the game, and every other Poison in every other video game ever created.

However I heard that it works on Xbox live so, in that case it would make it a full on Bug. Poison Cloud should also last longer. Not neccessarily the Cloud itself, but the duration in which it drains an enemy after they have left the Cloud.

legacy-Frank_the_Avenger
07-29-2005, 10:14 AM
Well I have something I would like. The ability to spectate in dedicated mode. I think this is just about the only game with a dedicated mode that the host can't spectate. And it should not be too hard would it?It wouldn't be too hard, but then you'd lose all benefit of being a dedicated server; if a host has bad performance, that can cause bad client performance, so having the dedicated server not render anything makes sure it has no performance hiccups. So it is possible, but it would be bad. It'd essentially behave like a listen server.

As to the patch availability, MS won't ever release a patch on a Friday (which makes sense, as if there are any problems with the release, nobody would be able to do anything about it until Monday) so you'll never see a patch just before a weekend. Hence, hopefully early next week. :) But honestly they haven't told us when they plan to send it out.

That works pretty well actually, for some reason they just dont see it coming the second time.

I tend to spam the stinger over people though, primary, because with steady aim it rips people apart.

Yes, in a delightfully spiritual way, it does feel reminiscent of Christmas. This will sound kinda crazy, but I'm definitely going to appreciate the whole UC2 experience even more than if there would've been zero problems to begin with.

I mean, if the game always worked flawlessly from the beginning, we'd naturally take this aspect for granted with a complete lack of appreciation for the LIVE component.

It's kinda like buying a brand new Ferrari and then realizing it's not running at it's full potential. After tweaking the necessary elements though, you gain a deeper respect for the progress that was made.

- Thanks Epic!

I hopped on Live for the first time in quite awhile (Been playing Guild Wars) early this morning after work. Had a couple hours of good gaming with a couple guys. Heard about the patch, came here to check it out.

Can't wait. All the bug fixes will be great. I'm the type of player that takes a match or two to warm up...and then I glitch out. Sigh. (today was good though, only lag when someone joined.)

But I am most looking forward to having the lights run a bit faster. I use Lauren almost exclusively, and am getting tired of having Anubis and Malcom catch up to me and melee me in the back, without Speed on! Argh!

I used to use Lauren all the time, but when Necris Selket became available I tried her out and it was a bittersweet surprise to learn she ran faster than Lauren, a fellow light. From what I've heard Lauren's speed, or lack thereof, is a bug that will hopefully be repaired in the upcoming patch.

Actually, I'm seeing lots of new people on this game everyday. I think the game went down in price or something. But this time they should stay because the patch is coming out real soon for them.

And the voice glitch is where you join a match and no one can hear you talk until the next game.

I've never heard of that voice glitch before, and i play pretty much every day. I have alot of times where peoples voices are REALLY quiet, but then the next match they're REALLY loud. Thats just weird, but that could just be them messing with their headset, or me accidentaly hitting volume.

legacy-Ravid182
07-31-2005, 12:19 PM
Yeah lately I have been seeing tons of new players. Maybe it is because of the price drop(It is like what 30 everywere now?[except, for at least mine that is, for best buy which it is still at 50 for some reason]) I know what you mean about the people who just got the game. I hope they do stay. But I have one friend who seems to only play Ghost Recon 2. A couple of days ago I saw him playing this game. I don't think he has played this game since. Of coarse he could have just been borrowing it or renting it though.

Your blind to the truth, it is too late, there is less and less server's all the time, you think the dedicated server's are gonna be here forever?

New buyer's dont consider the patch.

Anyone who was going to buy the game, already has, the fact that its price dropped so sharply doesnt actually reflect well on the popularity of the game.

People could comeback, but seeying as most of the gay glitches dont seem to be fixed, the only REAL up is the bandwidth reduction. Which, let's be honest, didnt make much of a difference too the American Dedi's.

The patch will help a bit, give some people the ability to host 8 player's, but it won't effect client's much at all.

But then there is somthing we havnt considered yet, what if the patch creates problems that out-weigh what it fixed? Ever think of that? I know that one is a maybe, but im just saying, dont get your hopes up, that patch passed through M$ testing too fast for my liking.

I don't know what you play, Hell Spunk, but I see new people in SV everyday. For a while, it was just the same people. Because of the price drop and the patch coming out real soon, people may actually start buying and playing this game again.

man hell spunk u really don't know what you're talking about. The glitches are all being fixed. I don't know wha tyou think the "gay glitches" are. The lock-ups are from LAG!!! Reduction in lag = less glitching out. There are still plenty of servers up. Everynight i see about 20 DM's up and running with people in them. I think if you'd stop being such a damn pessimest you might actually being looking forward to the patch.

Optomism is pointless.

Who said the lock ups are because of lag? I've been in perfect server's, normal ping, 2 or 3 people, still glitched out, and its still ceased up.

This is (edit) that should have been fixed before the game was released. I'm so tired of putting up with this (edit).

You must understand that Deathless, is saying what actually makes a noob. Not just saying that since something beats him it is for noobs. You couldn't obviously think that he gets owned by that.

That fact that you stand up for and defend that "tactic", says alot about how you are as a player.


If I want to Melee you then I will Melee you. If I want to rocket whore you, then I will rocket whore you. I'm sorry if it comes to that, it's apart of the game (even through I don't ever do crap like that, I count myself as an unreal junkie..guns are my first tastic..I rarley even use adrenlin). I am not trying to turn this into a flame war and I don't intend to. How can you judge me as a player when you probly never played me before? Thats shows WHAT kind of person you are. Again i'm sorry for this remark, but I must defend my point and will continue to till someone has somthing brilliant to say about this. (I'v seen a few Brilliant remarks, but this guys remark was somthing I had to respond to.) I will not respond to anymore remarks reguarding this topic, and if you rather continue this on PM me and we will take it to X-Box live (Talk or Game it out, don't matter to me), and I will show you how 'cheap' you claim I am.
