Thank you for playing BATTLETECH! Release 1.9.1 is now available on Steam and GoG. Other platforms will release as soon as possible. The main areas of improvement are: a fix for crash-on-exit, a fix for the debug console, improved error handling, updates to the mod support readme, several mod support fixes, and a small number of visual map fixes.

Release 1.9.1 Notes, 02/25/2020

Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where under certain circumstances the game did not exit cleanly after saving
  • Fixed an instance of a visible debug string showing in place of a percentage value in the After Action Report and during some events
  • The mod support readme has been updated:
  • Fixed an issue where mod names were displayed twice in the tooltip on the mod panel
  • Fixed an issue where one mod was not displayed in the list of required mods in the ‘Mods are missing or not enabled’ prompt
  • Fixed a date issue that would have prevented Paradox accounts from being created under certain conditions
  • The debug console, build number widget, and combat debug options can now be evoked when using their corresponding shortcut combinations
  • Fixed several visual map bugs

Did the bug with failing to delete saved games get fixed? I remember that was on the list of possible fixes.

And is this (expected to be) the last patch?

If so, thanks for all the hard work over the last few years!

The last feature patch was 1.9. From here on out there will only be bug-fix patches (of which 1.9.1 is the first).

Are you going to implement a fix for the "Tag Team"-contract bug?
I described it in the bug section in detail.

I did not know there was a 1.91 patch yet and started the game by accident earlier today (clicked on wrong icon). When I exited the game it froze and I had to use End Task to close the game. May only be a one time deal. If it happens again then I will do a bug report.

Warning to users, new patch breaks the game entirely for persons using the old Steam UI. Talking with support presently.

EDIT: support confirmed no assistance will be given to users with the old Steam UI. As this is the only game I am aware of with an issue, I believe the developers have added telemetry.

I am sorry but we are not going to be able to provide either of those things.

We only support and test games with the current Steam client version. We cannot expend support and developer resources retrofitting new game versions to run under old Steam versions. In this case presumably Steam changed their APIs in the new client and HBS changed the game to detect to those APIs accordingly, so it does not see the obsolete APIs in the old client ("InvalidOperationException").

I don't believe there is anything you can manually edit to change that. It would be hard-coded in the game, not in a .json file or something like that.

Please pay close attention to "HBS changed the game to detect to those APIs accordingly" as the old Steam UI worked just fine until this patch and all other games work just fine as well. The addition of the new API monitoring code breaks the game. As this code is irrelevant, it is nothing but telemetry.

EDIT: Game breaks via altered "black screen of death". There are menu options, but no background image and game is unable to start. You can access options menu.
