Thanks for playing the game!
Here's the official status of Magicka as of now (25th of Jan).
Singeplayer works fine for the most part, Multiplayer does not - patch on the way for both! (as soon as steam pushes the button). We'll patch the game as often as possible.
Singleplayer: Small bugs reported here and there and a bunch of them are already fixed. We're especially aware of the "middle mouse click" bug. Re-map option on the way! Devs will fix more stuff as they come in.
Multiplayer: Players are experiencing connectivity problems. In addition to that we know that we have a bug with status effects not being reported correctly on the client side in MP. This leads to a bunch of problems. The fix is in the patch!
Some players are reporting other problems. Please follow these general steps and hopefully it'll help most of you.
Make sure you're on a computer that has sufficient juice:
- Operating system: Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7
- Processor: Intel® Pentium® IV 2.4 GHz or AMD 3500+
- Memory: 2 GB RAM
- Hard disk space: 2 GB Available HDD Space
- Video: NVIDIA® GeForce 8800 or equivalent
- Direct X-compatible sound card
- DirectX® 9
- 3-button mouse, keyboard and speakers
- Internet connection for multiplayer
We've seen that a bunch of players are reporting that the game is running poorly on their netbooks/laptops without proper graphics cards. This is the primary reason why the game is acting up.
Make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card. Visit www.nvidia.com or www.amd.com.
Make sure your have the following installed (should have autoinstalled)
- XNA Framework
- Microsoft .net framework 3.5 (dotNetFx35setup.exe)
We (devs and publisher) are super committed to fix stuff that's broken and make sure you guys can have a great time with the game.
Additionally we've also have a bunch of improvements (password for private games etc) planned and will be patched in as soon as the major issues are out of the way!
Keep letting us know if there's anything else we can do!
Thanks again for playing and watch out for friendly fire!
