TF4.5 hotfix PATCH is out! Dec 28!

Postby Kling » Thu Dec 28, 2017 2:12 pm

All,

A new patch is live and should be getting to your installation folder.
The patch addresses the following:
1.- Server lag.
This is the fix that has been running on the ATAG server for a week now.

2.- Driving wheel crashes.
This was identified as a bug on the microsoft side when trying to apply joystick axes force feedback to the wheels. As a workaround this issue, the device is being identified now by any of the following two things:
a.- If the USB device informs windows that it is a "driving" device.
b.- If the device description text contains "wheel" (this is a safety measure in case the device is not properly reported as a "driving device".
If any of those two are true, the device will be skipped when selecting a FF device. Note that there might be wheels out there that do not match any of the two conditions which would make the test fail and the issue to happen.

Besides preventing the crash, this has another advantage. The game picks the first FF device available and assumes it is the joystick. If the wheel is first on the list, by skipping it, the next device should be the joystick and FF should work on it.

Thanks for the notice. We'll take another look.

One of the nice things about Steam is that it makes rolling out patches like this so much easier for the users.

It will still show the same version in game. It is still 4.5 with this hotfix. It is partly mybfault for calling it a patch when it is actually a hotfix only to 4.5
I have a feeling it will be 4.5.1 sometime soon though ;)

How do we know which version we are on, if they are both labelled 4.5.0?

When is 4.5.1 coming out?

I guess if you haven't got any downloads to do then you're up to date.

Admittedly it would have made far more sense to change the version number but it is Christmas. Easy to forget. Besides that sort of thing may be governed by the agreement between TF and 1C.

For Dietrich
Cant say anything about a TF4.5.1 or what will be in it. You should know better than asking that ;)

If you run the game and have steam online, then you will have the hotfix.
