LIVE - BATTLETECH 1.9.1 Update Release Notes

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

you could try grabbing the Paradox Launcher, linking your steam key there and playing the game that way which bypasses the STEAM UI.

I refuse to use a lesser UI and the game worked fine until this update. I am merely stating this for others who may be wondering why their game is suddenly broken. If they are using the old UI, the game will not work and the reason for it is purely telemetry. I have already been notified that paradox and the developers refuse to support this issue to protect, what I feel, are their new telemetry practices. Again, this is just a PSA.

Guess I will never see the 1.9 and above game. That steam ui is garbage and if you research it, is a harvester. The game worked just find and then paradox got greedy for data and broke a good game. Sad :/

I disagree.

How are the stats on your computer? Are you running close to the margins?

If you mean me I get 144fps at ultra 1440p, excepting in instances where Unity Engine and dev failings cause issue. These failings are well documented. It is not a hardware issue, it is an issue of refusal to participate in these telemetry practices, which I believe they are unless a representative can post why there is code present in a video game that checks what Steam UI you are using at launch.

No were close to the margins. I can run it all maxed out with no problems. That is not the issue though.

Having the game check which ui being used is a ridiculously absurd reason to break a game.

My apologies for putting this here, but there seemed to be no other forum or thread that even came close to the matter I have on hand.

I contributed $50 - late backer - to the kickstarter campaign some years ago. I got the soundtrack - it is excellent, thank you very much - and the other bonuses tjat backers were to receive. However, the machine I had at the time was not capable of running the game; I was simply going to have to wait until the cash and opportunity came along to utilize what I had waiting.

That opportunity has finally come. I now have a machine with the capafity to run the online version, and, while I will never lose my love for the table-top, role-the-dice game, I would like to at least try out HBS' online efforts and see what is available.

The problem is I have no way of accessing, much less downloading, my account. Is there any way that a member, Moderator or Dev can indicate what the process is, and how this can be fulfilled? I express all gratitude for any directions that can be offered. All best.

The last official patch for the game broke a few things.

  1. My key commands keep resetting Rotate Camera Right to Q and Rotate Camera Left to E by default, when the reverse configuration is obviously the correct one.
  2. The alternative colors for direct and indirect firing lines keep resetting to the old red lines, despite my saving this preference.
  3. The culturals on/of switch in video settings for urban map (the one that turns the cars and truck on or off) keeps resetting to on (my PC is less than optimal specs for the game, and I often turn off the background vehicles, as it makes a big difference in map performance for me).

Are these issues going to be addressed? Sorry guys...the last update was nice, but you broke a few things. Not being able to save options doesn't render the game unplayable, but having to reset them with each session is a real PITA...

Same question

Please reply -_-
MechWarriors,

Let's keep this thread on-topic, please. This is not a bug-report thread, nor is it a thread for wild speculations about some nebulous added telemetry. The user posting about that refuses to switch to Steam's new UI and can therefore no longer run the game in Steam. That is that poster's prerogative, but it needn't be delved into further.
