Welcome to BATTLETECH 1.2! This release contains a number of quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes, as well as some cool new features. We have also released an overhaul of MechWarrior abilities to Beta (see details below), and have updates on Linux and Localized versions of the game.

HIGHLIGHTS: Players using the Custom Campaign options introduced in 1.1 can now take advantage of a new "Prologue Skip" setting to fast-track new campaigns (this is definitely not recommended for first-time players, though!). The combat Morale system in the campaign has received a significant overhaul (and is now called Resolve - more on that below). We've added a Memorial Wall in the Argo so that you can honor Dekker's sacrifice whenever you want. We've made several improvements to our save game management systems (and you can now name Manual Saves when creating them). And lastly, we added new events for you to discover during your mercenary adventures.See further details below.

Linux update: The team is still actively working on our Linux release. We hit a snafu with playback of audio (as in, “There’s no sound in the game”) but we’ve gotten support from an external party and appear to be back on track. We expect the Linux version to be available in Beta within the next few weeks.

Localized versions of the game: Players looking for BATTLETECH in French, German, and Russian still have a wait ahead of them. Our localization testing team recently discovered a bug that was preventing our translators from seeing a large quantity of content waiting to be translated. The issue has been fixed and localization is back on track. Unfortunately, release will be delayed for another couple of months.

We apologize to Kickstarter Backers and others waiting to play the game in Linux or their native language and we’re doing our best to get this work done as soon as possible. More details regarding localization can be found in this BATTLETECH Community thread: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/in-depth-localization-update.1116568/

MechWarrior Abilities Beta: We're also excited to share a big revision to MechWarrior abilities, now released in Beta form. Before putting these live, we wanted to give interested players the opportunity to try these ability revisions and share their thoughts. Thus, we are releasing this work on a separate "public_preview" beta for dedicated testing. This beta is identical to the live state of 1.2, except for the abilities revision. We'll be reviewing beta feedback on these abilities in weeks following and expect to push this revision to live in our next big release, Update 1.3. Please read BATTLETECH Lead Designer Kiva McGinn’s Dev Diary post describing the new abilities: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...aries-1-mechwarrior-ability-revision.1116566/

Note: Players switching to the public_preview beta will have all of their MechWarriors XP refunded, since the new abilities change each skill’s progress fairly significantly. This free re-spec will also be offered to players on the live branch when it’s officially released. It is highly recommended that you make a backup of your save games folder, as you will not be able to use a save game file from the new version in the case that you roll back to the live 1.2. This is especially important if you are in the middle of an iron man playthrough.

Please enjoy BATTLETECH 1.2, and also consider jumping in to the "public_preview" branch to give the MechWarrior abilities revision a spin!

IMPORTANT: If you experience any issues after updating, or see a popup like this one when trying to run the game...





This is a known issue with Steam, where it can occasionally fail to apply the update as expected. Here's the most reliable way we've seen to get around it:

  1. Remove an existing game file in your installation directory (e.g. BattleTech.exe)

  2. Verify Integrity of Game Files (Right-click on BATTLETECH in your Steam Library, select Properties -> Local Files tab)

  3. The update should now download and apply normally.
IMPORTANT: Additional note for players who mod various game files…Reminder that modding is not officially supported. If you have saved a game with any mod active, that saved game will not work after an update has been applied unless you replace all modded files exactly as they were when the save game file was created. Saved games require the exact same data state in order to function properly.


As always, if you experience further issues please contact Customer Support at: https://support.paradoxplaza.com


New Features & Content

New Prologue Skip Option. Added the ability to skip the opening missions and cinematics of the campaign and skip to your first mission as a mercenary commander, helping a group of miners.

Aside from the lack of news on the Marauder, Warhammer, Raven, and the legendary MechWarrior/Mech cameos, how're you guys feeling about difficulty scaling in the singleplayer campaign, in particular with respect to story missions? Same for light 'mech viability at higher difficulty missions?

Tooltip for Firepower still fails to correctly calculate missiles. A small thing, but it's disappointing to see it's still not fixed - especially for those of us not so good at doing math in our heads! (I don't mean to sound ungrateful, though: All the updates are much appreciated!)

What is the error?

I've missed this one.
The tooltip calculates it as 1 missile only ... which gives a wildly inaccurate figure for max damage on any 'Mech mounting missile launchers - e.g., an LRM20++ with 6 damage per missile (total damage, 120) is calculated as doing 6 damage. I have to do alpha strike calculations manually for any 'Mech with a missile launcher as a result. (As I said, not a big issue in the grand scheme of things; almost inconsequential if Prussian Havoc hasn't noticed it! - but the tooltip for Heat Efficiency made things easier for me in the Mech Bay, and I'd kinda like the Firepower tooltip to do the same, if possible!)

The tooltip calculates it as 1 missile only ... which gives a wildly inaccurate figure for max damage on any 'Mech mounting missile launchers - e.g., an LRM20++ with 6 damage per missile (total damage, 120) is calculated as doing 6 damage. I have to do alpha strike calculations manually for any 'Mech with a missile launcher as a result. (As I said, not a big issue in the grand scheme of things; almost inconsequential if Prussian Havoc hasn't noticed it! - but the tooltip for Heat Efficiency made things easier for me in the Mech Bay, and I'd kinda like the Firepower tooltip to do the same, if possible!)
Thank you, Good @jsbenjamin. :bow:

Guys, please be aware that the escort-missions are still bugged. (I open a new thread in the bug-section for the devs.)
Hey, I had that happen to me yesterday (destroyed last enemy, and kept hitting the done button, but APC never moved). However, once I moved one of my mechs close to the APC's, they started moving again. It maybe actually fixed. Next time if you run into a stuck APC, try moving a mech (or your whole lance) near the apc, and I'm pretty sure it will fix it.

Welcome to BATTLETECH 1.2! This release contains a number of quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes, as well as some cool new features. We have also released an overhaul of MechWarrior abilities to Beta (see details below), and have updates on Linux and Localized versions of the game.

HIGHLIGHTS: Players using the Custom Campaign options introduced in 1.1 can now take advantage of a new "Prologue Skip" setting to fast-track new campaigns (this is definitely not recommended for first-time players, though!). The combat Morale system in the campaign has received a significant overhaul (and is now called Resolve - more on that below). We've added a Memorial Wall in the Argo so that you can honor Dekker's sacrifice whenever you want. We've made several improvements to our save game management systems (and you can now name Manual Saves when creating them). And lastly, we added new events for you to discover during your mercenary adventures.See further details below.

Linux update: The team is still actively working on our Linux release. We hit a snafu with playback of audio (as in, “There’s no sound in the game”) but we’ve gotten support from an external party and appear to be back on track. We expect the Linux version to be available in Beta within the next few weeks.

Localized versions of the game: Players looking for BATTLETECH in French, German, and Russian still have a wait ahead of them. Our localization testing team recently discovered a bug that was preventing our translators from seeing a large quantity of content waiting to be translated. The issue has been fixed and localization is back on track. Unfortunately, release will be delayed for another couple of months.

We apologize to Kickstarter Backers and others waiting to play the game in Linux or their native language and we’re doing our best to get this work done as soon as possible. More details regarding localization can be found in this BATTLETECH Community thread: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/in-depth-localization-update.1116568/

MechWarrior Abilities Beta: We're also excited to share a big revision to MechWarrior abilities, now released in Beta form. Before putting these live, we wanted to give interested players the opportunity to try these ability revisions and share their thoughts. Thus, we are releasing this work on a separate "public_preview" beta for dedicated testing. This beta is identical to the live state of 1.2, except for the abilities revision. We'll be reviewing beta feedback on these abilities in weeks following and expect to push this revision to live in our next big release, Update 1.3. Please read BATTLETECH Lead Designer Kiva McGinn’s Dev Diary post describing the new abilities: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...aries-1-mechwarrior-ability-revision.1116566/

Note: Players switching to the public_preview beta will have all of their MechWarriors XP refunded, since the new abilities change each skill’s progress fairly significantly. This free re-spec will also be offered to players on the live branch when it’s officially released. It is highly recommended that you make a backup of your save games folder, as you will not be able to use a save game file from the new version in the case that you roll back to the live 1.2. This is especially important if you are in the middle of an iron man playthrough.

Please enjoy BATTLETECH 1.2, and also consider jumping in to the "public_preview" branch to give the MechWarrior abilities revision a spin!

IMPORTANT: If you experience any issues after updating, or see a popup like this one when trying to run the game...





This is a known issue with Steam, where it can occasionally fail to apply the update as expected. Here's the most reliable way we've seen to get around it:

  1. Remove an existing game file in your installation directory (e.g. BattleTech.exe)

  2. Verify Integrity of Game Files (Right-click on BATTLETECH in your Steam Library, select Properties -> Local Files tab)

  3. The update should now download and apply normally.
IMPORTANT: Additional note for players who mod various game files…Reminder that modding is not officially supported. If you have saved a game with any mod active, that saved game will not work after an update has been applied unless you replace all modded files exactly as they were when the save game file was created. Saved games require the exact same data state in order to function properly.


As always, if you experience further issues please contact Customer Support at: https://support.paradoxplaza.com


New Features & Content

New Prologue Skip Option. Added the ability to skip the opening missions and cinematics of the campaign and skip to your first mission as a mercenary commander, helping a group of miners.

Known Issues

  • If you load a save game that was in the middle of combat into the public_preview MechWarrior Re-Spec version from a previous version of the game, you will still have the old abilities even if the UI represents the new abilities. You will need to be back at the Argo before the Re-Spec process will take place.
First feedback -- there are a lot of little changes here that were on my old "wishlists", so that's cool.

Second feedback -- when the Ability changes to live, PLEASE leave the old Abilities and "tags" in there, so that modders can restore the old Abilities instead. PLEASE.

Yeah I'd noticed this also. It would be one thing if it was trying to give you an average damage for missiles (presuming some aren't hitting, vs the full pack, but if the missile pack says for example 4*15 it counts it as only 4 which is nowhere even close to accurate

It's nice that you pushed this as a kickstarter update as well, but I would suggest you rev up that ol' mailing list and also send it to late-backers and paypal-backers. I think we never got noticed about the 1.1.0 update in email form too.
