Framerate[edit | edit source]

  • FPS in single player once again defaults to 60 fps.
  • The UI now renders on each button press (providing immediate feedback to the player).
  • In-game chat commands are now functional for controlling FPS:
    • "getfps" to see what their current ui/fps values are.
    • "setmaxfps #" to alter their maximum fps in single player.
    • Replace # with a number between 5 and 10000.
    • "setuifps #" to alter their maximum ui fps.
    • Replace # with a number between 1 and 10000.
  • Please note that increasing these value may reduce responsiveness or create drops in overall fps.
  • Please note that players may need to disable vsync in the options menu to see the fps increase.

AI[edit | edit source]

  • Custom AI mods now correctly appear and are selectable from the Player Name drop down.
  • While setting up a standard game with Conquerors enabled, the player name drop-down now properly calculates custom AIs.
  • AI now default to Computer in the Player Name drop down when returning to the setup screen.
  • AI will now respond to player commands (like asking for food or trying to ally).
  • AI will now resign when appropriate.
  • AI will now attempt to go after the Relic in Capture the Relic games.

UI[edit | edit source]

  • The red Age Advance bar is back.
  • Resource fonts are now using the correct font type and no longer flicker.
  • When hosting a game, the Game Lobby title is now Multiplayer Game.
  • Post game Player Names are now centered in the banner.
  • Post game Technology Stats headers are now visible in all columns.
  • Tech tree icon is now updated and centered.
  • In the Editor the Trigger Toggle buttons are now visible.

Mod manager[edit | edit source]

  • Upgrading mods should now function for all players.
  • Improvements for players with more than 50 published mods (now easier to manage).
  • Added a commandline argument "FASTVALIDATE".
    • This will sacrifice smooth animation on the validation screen in exchange for greater processing speed (most noticeable for players with 300+ mods).
  • Fixed an infinite loop crash during validation when it’s waiting for something it can’t find.
    • If players run into an infinite loop, they can hit Ctrl+C to break out of it.
  • Icons for status and type are now displayed next to each mod (along with help text).
    • Status Subscribed is an open scroll icon.
    • Status Published is a sealed scroll icon.
    • Status Unpublished is a blue feather pen icon.
    • Status Legacy Published is a stone tablet icon.
    • Type Dataset is a gear icon.
    • Type Legacy mod is a broken stone tablet.
  • Players can hover the mouse over the column headers to get in-game descriptions of the icons.

General[edit | edit source]

  • When launching the patch for the first time the game will attempt to auto relocate files including custom scenarios, AI and random map scripts.
  • Intro/outro sequences for the "Battles of the Forgotten" scenarios are now functioning.
  • When holding a Relic while force closing the game it will no longer crash.
  • Relay network message will no longer spam players.
  • Relay network message should appear localized correctly for the player (not the sender).
  • Campaigns should now work correctly for players with Chinese Local.
  • Game Lobby file transfer bar has been improved.
  • Launch Option NOMODS no longer breaks video playback.
