1.127B Pendragon Test-Server Patch Notes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2020 Aug 26 14:04 -0400 GMT
The Pendragon test server is now open for testing!

All tracked bugs on Pendragon should now be resolved with this update and barring any additional issues or feedback 1.127 will be going to the live servers next week!

Important Note:
  • We highly suggest duplicating your game directory and using the duplicate copy as a Pendragon-only game directory *before* patching and testing on Pendragon.
    • ​This means duplicating the entire "Labyrinth" folder (usually found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Labyrinth) to another location and using that copied folder exclusively for Pendragon testing.
    • ​If you do not do this, you *will* experience issues when patching from Pendragon back to live.
      • To force the live client to fix these issues, you will need to delete the mft.myp in your game's directory and then run the camelot.exe patcher again.
For those interested in testing on Pendragon, follow the character copy process here!

Here are the short and sweet 1.127B notes!
