Hot Fix Notes



1.126 Live Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Nov 13 16:38 -0500 GMT

Endless Conquest and patch 1.126 have been up and running smoothly for a full day now. It's been exciting seeing all the new (and many familiar!) faces. A huge thank you to those who have sent in feedback and/or bug reports, please keep them coming! We have some fixes and changes based on those initial reports for you this evening.

Developer's note:

  • We're currently aware of and working hard on fixes for the following issues (these fixes will likely require server downtime to address):
    • Certain pets chain-buffing themselves as well as occassionally enemy targets.
    • Certain pets not casting certain abilities that they normally would.
    • Targeting and attacking issues after coming out of forceful zephyr.
      • NOTE: As a temporary solution, players experiencing this issue can clear their target by clicking on the ground and then re-select their target to be able to attack again.
    • Dead players appearing as "alive" briefly after /releasing.
    • The /bg groups command no longer functioning

1.126B Pendragon Test-Server Patch Notes

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 Nov 05 16:09 -0500 GMT
Patch 1.126B is now on our Pendragon Test server! 

Many of these changes are in direct response to the feedback we received on the 1.126 test-server notes. Please hop on and test our latest changes and leave us your detailed feedback

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!
