Now I have to decide if I want to take the Warhammer IIC out after patch ot my Nightstar 9S with 2 UAC20's!

Is anyone else hoping that the focus on MechWarrior 5 will lead to MWO moving to the Unreal engine?

This all better lead to something good. Otherwise my wallet is closed due to the attitude of development toward MWO.

No fix for the macro problem (most recent guass)... not even a game wide disable of macros. Because they cant do anything about it... EXPLOIT ON.

Pretty damn disappointing patch, pretty much nothing except those solaris city stuck things that requires anything else than changing a number in XML.

HMG ammo increase is welcome thou...

There is no macro problem, not since they fixed Racro... What is this gauss macro that gives you huge advantages thing?

And how do you disable macros that are not run by MWO? You know pretty much EVERY gaming tagged mouse and keyboard has their own software that includes macro programming. Then there are external softwares like firecontrol.

but I would really like what kind of epic exploits you can do with macros?

I really like how they deleted the shadows of bolt-ons and weapon doors instead of actually fixing them. Really classy, PGI.

Sorry for being late guys, I'm just coming back from Cuba, Mexico. All the family needed some sun induced vitamin D. We came back from airport at 4 am and decided to rush in the bed instead of going online to reply.

So you have it, this is where MWO is today, no more passion from devs. MW5 is the main focus.

Some of you will remember when the Jagermech had a shadow issue with the fins on the shoulders, it was fixed in a timely manner. Today they prefer to delete than fixing because MW5 takes all the ressources.

But you know what? I still prefer they removed it than doing nothing again and ignoring the problem. At least those broken shadows won't be distracting and that's a plus to me.

Why it took 2 years then so many very visible posts from me this last year to get this simple fix is beyond me.

'Mech Quirk changes
TNS-4P:
  • Mobility increased to similar levels of other higher mobility TNS variants.
    Design notes: Out of the Thanatos line, the 4P stood out as under-performing compared to other variants. We will be bringing its mobility up to match similar Thanatos variants.


In line with the hangover, the 4S, or something else? Both are faster variants but they don't have the same stats.

They already hotfixed the Racro/MG exploit, which apparently capitalized on the fact that the weapons lacked a proper cooldown setting. That came on the 4th.

Disabling macros in general is impossible without removing all user inputs from the game, the ability to play it, and the game client itself. The game even has a built in macro; it's called chain fire. Its script is to change to the next weapon 0.5 seconds after the last weapon fired or upon each click of the group's fire key.

So long as weapons are coded with proper cooldowns to prevent a "fire on button press any time you press button", Macros can't do anything better than regular firing and short of fails on PGI's end, a macro at best can reduce your firing rate to create cool beats.

Probably because you were the only one caring about this issue. And since in most professional studios even very simple fixes require quite some overhead (e.g. testing/QA to ensure the fix did not break anything, merging the fix in source control, updating the task in project management software, updating changelog, ect.), those issues which only cause aesthetic problems for very few players are usually priotized extremely low.

Just caught up with the Feb. 19, 2019 Patch Notes... I can not see anything objectionable here. :mellow:

Huh... That's actually Good News! :)

Now, that said....... I hope at some point in the next few months that they do for the Mech Attachment Shadows (Weapon Doors, Bolt-Ons, etc.) what they were doing with the Glowing Eyes on the Atlas... In this case, creating a Proper Fix for the return of such visual features that helped with being immersed in the game. ^_^

However, Everyone... This goes to show what kind of time that PGI will honestly REALLY NEED to create anything reasonable, and get it PROPERLY put into the Live Server MWO Game Client for all of you. The question is, can you be more supportive (even if only mentally) in the meantime, and QUIT doing the stupid thing of trying to rush them so damned hard that they're constantly blowing things with Bugs and such? :blink:

IMO, this has to be the way forward, I have a i7, 32GB's of RAM and a 1080 and this game struggles at 3440x1440 without AA.

If they could just at least hint at it, it'd put so many people's mind at rest. Then onwards, they can take their sweet time as long as we know this game will evolve we'd be a lot happier.

Honesty and transparency is the best way to keep a gaming community going.

*cough, cough* we will get the new "old" Maps. Its because ... ah, just watch the official videos to this issue they brought out after the disapointing Mechcon why its so difficult to build new maps. I wished they bring 1-2 (new!) Maps in the year like it is sure they bring 1 new Mech in the month. But who am i asking as a customer for more than moneybringing mechs.
