    @OrdeaL:

    Bodkin/Broadhead arrow fix?? ;)

    On the list but missed this patch.



  • All good, not a big issue



  • You guys truely have made an amazing game. I played a obj map last night, where Agatha was attacking via a beech landing. the map blow me away.

    Im looking forward to playing this with the new patch, my fav class is the vangaurd with greatsword :)



  • what problem is there whit the broadhead arrows and the bodkin arrows?



  • @LuckeR:

    what problem is there whit the broadhead arrows and the bodkin arrows?

    There’s no difference between them, only cosmetic



  • ahh okay. i have notic that no matter what type of arrow you are using the knight still takes 3-4 shots



  • Why is the double axe being nerfed?



  • steam doesnt seem to patch the game for me, is there a way to do it manually?



  • Why not have weapon unlocks with bots?



  • Nice and thanks, the best on the list are
    Nerf of mace and waraxe
    Unlock will work
    And bows are fixed
    And of course the optimization



  • @catmorbid:

    Why not have weapon unlocks with bots?

    Chivalry is a multiplayer game, so it makes sense to only unlock stuff while playing multiplayer.



  • @taimic:

    steam doesnt seem to patch the game for me, is there a way to do it manually?

    Right click chivalry -> properties
    Check that you have “Always keep up to date” on updates section.
    on Local Files section there is Verify integrity of game cache

    This will force steam to check files that they are correct and latest. It will take some time tho.



  • Here’s hoping the keybinding issues are addressed in BP3! :)

    I hate how steam doesn’t tell you the last time the game had an update. It doesn’t say anything at all.



  • unlocking weopons is now working :)



  • Good job guys!
