Paragon Chat Patch Notes
« on: January 18, 2017, 06:09:20 AM »
Current release version: 1.0.15.3

Okay, trying something different based on feedback from a few people.

From now on, this will be the consolidated patch notes thread. It will be locked so that the only replies are new releases, handy for people who want to subscribe for email notifications. I'll also be posting each set of patch notes in a separate post so that they can be linked to directly from other sites.

There is a patch notes discussion thread here, which will be the place to talk about new releases.

I'll keep this top post updated with a link to the most current patch.

Patch notes for version 1.0.12
Update branch: Release
Release date: 17 Jan 2017

Badges
  • New command: /set_title_name (also /settitlename) that accepts an internal badge name, such as Anniversary10 or AtlasParkExplorer.

  • Yo dawg, we heard you like badges, so we added badges for your badges so you can earn badges while you're earning badges.
Events
  • Two words: Ski Race
Powers
  • New power: Recall Friend. Somewhat experimental, but seems to be working in limited testing.
System
  • Implement some new powers system features: Teammate target type, power confirmation prompts, and support for secondary targets including range handling.
Zones
  • Resolve issue with zoning in to the revised Pocket D map sometimes taking longer than usual.

  • Added a map marker to the door that leads to the Ski Chalet to make it easier to find for returning players.

  • Increased local chat range in Pocket D by 50%.

Patch notes for version 1.0.12.1
Update branch: Release
Release date: 18 Jan 2017

Chat
  • Hopefully figured out the magic incantation to prevent the game client from randomly removing global channels from tabs when unexpectedly disconnected from the XMPP server.

  • Upon login, 'orphaned' global channels that are joined but not present in any chat tabs are automatically added to the first tab in the client config, which is usually "Global". This should help restore channels to people who didn't realize they had lost them after a disconnect.

Patch notes for version 1.0.13.1
Update branch: Release
Release date: 15 Sep 2017

Network
  • Fix service discovery issue that breaks MUC when connecting to XMPP servers that strictly implement RFC 6120 (notably Openfire 4.1 and later).
UI
  • Force the COH client to register itself as high-DPI aware. This fixes the scaling issue when running fullscreen on Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 on a high-DPI monitor (generally 4k+ resolutions or tiny notebook screens).

Now that people have had a chance to experience the event cold, here are the full patch notes.



Supplementary patch notes for version 1.0.14
Update branch: Release
Release date: 17 Oct 2017

Events
  • Added Trick or Treat event. The event runs yearly from Oct 1 - Oct 31.

    • Most doors in outdoor city zones are eligible. Some doors in common social hubs are excluded.

    • There is a 3 second cooldown after a successful trick or treat before another door can be clicked.

    • After being clicked, doors become ineligible for trick or teating for 10 minutes. Unlike the live game, this is rolling counter and they do not all reset at once.

    • There is a 50% chance of receiving a treat from the following list:

      • A piece of Halloween salvage: Statesman Halloween Mask, Lord Recluse Halloween Mask, Back Alley Brawler Halloween Gloves, or Hamidon Halloween Costume. (Common)

        This salvage currently does not have any in-game purpose, but as was done with the winter event, a vendor will likely be added as some point to trade it in for permanent powers or other items.

      • One of 33 temporary costume powers. These powers expire 14 days (real time) after being acquired. (Uncommon)

        Note: Each power has a separate entry in the drop table, so while their rarity is uncommon, they drop quite frequently at first because there are so many.

      • A candy cane. (Uncommon)

      • A rock. Single use temp power, can stack up to 10 charges. (Rare)

      • Box of 11 candy canes. (Very Rare)

    • If you don't receive a treat, you'll instead get a trick:

      • A halloween-themed pop-up door message. (Common)

      • A redcap on your head! (Uncommon)

      • Transformed into a Rikti Monkey for 1 minute. They finally made a monkey out of you. (Uncommon)

      • Mot will reach up and 'tentaport' you to a random location. (Uncommon)

      • "Mot Chompers". Inspired by the Voracious Maw power from the Dilemma Diabolique Incarnate Trial. (Uncommon)

      • "Falling Sword". The sword cracks the ground and leaves a deadly blue patch that deal fast-ticking damage to anyone standing on it. Based on Battle Maiden's ability to call down falling swords (oddly called 'Spears') from the fight with her in the Apex Task Force. (Uncommon)

      • "Confused Zombie". A zombie got lost on its way to a zone invasion event. (Rare)

      • "Orbital Cannon". Instant death to anyone who doesn't move out of the target area. Loosely based on the Obliteration Beam from the final battle with Anti-Matter in the Keyes Island Reactor Trial. (Very Rare)

  • The Trick or Treat event enables players to earn three new badges:

    • Clothes Horse - Collect 10 costume temp powers

    • Fashionable - Collect 25 costume temp powers

    • Ostentatious - Collect 50 costume temp powers
Gameplay
  • The 'go to hospital' button in the defeat dialog is now functional.

  • Hit Points and Max HP are now synchronized over XMPP, so other players' health bars will be somewhat accurate.
Miscellaneous
  • Added a new easter egg, and a badge for finding it.

    Or maybe there is no badge, and this is just a twisted way to see how Gullible people are.
Powers
  • The option to delete temporary powers from the power list window is now functional. Not-so-subtle hint: Using this ability is the only way to earn the Ostentatious badge without waiting until next year.

Patch notes for version 1.0.15
Update branch: Release
Release date: 26 Oct 2017

Events
  • For 2017 only, Trick-or-treating has been extended to run through Nov. 16.
Miscellaneous
  • Non-local players managed by another instance no longer incorrectly regenerate hitpoints.
Powers
  • Energy Flight is now exclusive to Peacebringers.

  • New Peacebringer-exclusive powers added:

    • Bright Nova
    • White Dwarf

  • New Warshade-exclusive powers added:

    • Shadow Step
    • Dark Nova
    • Black Dwarf


Patch notes for version 1.0.15.1
Update branch: Release
Release date: 26 Oct 2017

UI
  • Attempt to detect when running under Wine, and fall back to using the old Windows XP folder chooser rather than the new one introducted in Vista.

    This may make it easier to choose the COH installation folder on Macs, which seem to have an incomplete implementation of the new common file dialog.

Patch notes for version 1.0.15.3
Update branch: Release
Release date: 19 Nov 2017

Events
  • Fix phantom half-working trick or treating.

  • Adjusted timing for the "Winter's Gift" event. Instead of 12/7 through the morning of 1/7, the event now starts on 12/6 and ends at 6AM UTC on 1/6. This more closely follows the original intent of the event ending after the 12th day of Christmas.
