Bug Fix

  • Fixed a bug where under certain conditions weapon doors would prevent missiles from registering properly on the server.




Patch Files (Direct Download)

To make the patching process easier for players with limited download caps, we'll be providing direct download links for the patch file(s) that comprise this patch. This will allow you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, for manual injection into the MWO patcher through a Patch Cache folder.
Aside from allowing you to download the patch file(s) elsewhere, on another connection, there are no additional benefits to performing the patch this way; the patching process itself will be the same.
This direct patch download process will only work for players running the standalone client. It does not apply to players running MWO through Steam.


Patch File(s): To be provided on patch day

How to use these patch files
• Download the above file(s)
• For sake of ease, we recommend creating a dedicated folder for the patch file(s), such as 'MWO Patch Cache'
• You do not need to unzip or unpack the patch file(s)
• Launch the MWO Portal
• Select the three horizontal lines in the top left of the Portal Window
• Choose the 'Specify Patch File Cache' option
• In the field that appears, paste or enter the location in which you saved the patch file(s) and hit OK
• For example, C:\Users\<username>\Documents\MWO Patch Cache
• Click the blue Patch button
• The launcher will now check the Patch Cache folder you defined. If it locates the required patch files, it will unpack and use those files to apply the patch.
• Once the patch is complete, launch the game

How come you patch based on comment from a noob in GD last week? I posted this exact same missile problem in September of 2019!?

PGI wake up!!! Paul, Matt, whoever, do something. This was the worst day I had in MWO so far and I am playing on several accounts over the years and invested hundreds if not thousands of Euro. Matchmaker is a joke. Waitingtime between matches unexaptable. Tiersystem and Matchscore is fundamantaly broken. You wanted skills to count for tier ranking well it is only damage that counts making good lightmech players obsolet.I know that I am not alone with my frustration cause it is the same through out every gamechat and if you need more confirmation watch baraduls latest video on youtube and hear what he has to say. I am close to quiting the game now. A game that I loved to play for years. Get your act together people, this game and community diserves better and most of use don't give a s... about MW5 until it is complett in about 3 years time judging from your development speed.

@ PGI Staff — Thanks for the Emergency Bug Fix for the Weapon Doors that you're about to throw in. Hit Registry should never be allowed to fail, because that ends up providing unexpected immunity to opposing targets, which would definitely ruin the game. :)

Since this will have an impact on other things, is the time that's allocated to the July 2020 Beach Party Event going to get a minor extension to compensate for this Emergency Bug Fix to the MWO Game, or is everyone unfortunately losing the time needed to put the Patch into play? :o





As for these thoughts...

I second this. We shouldn't be having problems due to a glitch with Weapon Doors on any Mech in the game. My own Dervishes, Catapults, Kintaros, and King Crabs are all thankful to have this issue cleared up. ^_^

They don't read the forums. I emailed a link to a video of the problem and a link to the forum to tech support, and they responded to that. I'm happy to see they fixed it so quickly, but disappointed to know it was ever a problem if it was this easy to fix. I would have complained about it a couple years ago if I had owned Butterbee back then. Last time I ran SRMs on a Catapult, they were outside the weapon doors.

I think this bug is at least a year old if not longer. What is bad is everyone just blows you off when you even mention it.
it was the patch that was breaking it and nobody is going to put any effort in fixing that whole process. The patch always broke the leaderboards. remember?

You actually got a response from support? I have several reports of bugs from YEARS ago that have been completely ignored with no contact from support to try to resolve the issue. Several recent bug reports haven't even received the auto-response "we received your report" e-mail.

I took it as a sign, well one of many signs, that PGI has packed it in and abandoned MWO completely.

We shouldn't have weapon doors at all. They aren't explained anywhere in the game. How is a new player ever going to know they even exist, much less what they do?
Just make them all work like King Crab arms and be done with it. They should have no game effect at all.

Unless they've been changed, weapon bay doors give a slight bonus (10% if i remember correctly) to armor on the location in which they are placed.

20% damage reduction but only when closed, which they won't be if you are shooting. Unless you get surprised often and start eating damage before shooting, it's better to keep doors open to avoid the delay.

I could see my SRMs landing behind the mech standing in front of me, but thought it was a lag issue.

Didn't expect it was a bug, even less that it would be fixed.

On the side note AMS shoots through rocks, floor, roof whatever... Should we send a video of that too ?

Yes, we should! For the first couple of years after I figured out how to turn off AMS, I used to always do that when I was inside a tunnel because I assumed it was just wasting ammo trying to shoot at missiles outside. Then I was the one SHOOTING the missiles outside, and trying desperately to figure out where the AMS was coming from, and why I was having such abysmal luck getting them to their target. That's when I put 2 and 2 together and stopped turning off my AMS. :)

I've never had bad luck getting an email response. It's the forums they never seem to even look at. I copy the email address from the "support" page into my personal email composition page, and fire it off. I've actually had pretty good luck getting at least an explanation, if not a fix, that way. Of 326 posts (allegedly), I've had two? maybe three? posts responded to by PGI, but only when I'm yelling at Matt or Paul for something on one of their own posts, or when I'm confusing Matt Newman, Paul Inoye, and Paul Newman...
