  • plz how to not receive any C:DW updates and only C:MW? Don’t see why I should be forced to download content for a game which I have no interest in.



  • good patch guys! :D



  • Thank you TORN BANNER!



  • Thank you for the patch, but is it in your range of capabilities to make it so we don’t have to reset our keys after every patch? Also I ask again, what was the though process of changing the Knight’s parry animation to make it appear slow and lethargic? Kind of misleading when you look at the 1st/3rd anims for the parry. I don’t see any mention of the change in any patchnotes.

    edit: Oh, setting my keys right still randomly sets them to random actions. My sprint is my crouch, ESC key doesn’t work now, etc etc. This has been happening since beta and I know I’m not the only one. Would be nice if this was finally sorted…



  • Good shit, good shit. Time to blaze a bowl and kill some bitches.

    Wait, so if I don’t own DW, it’s still going to download updates for it because they share the same client launcher?

    Please tell me this isn’t true.



  • “WE’LL BLOW YOUR BALLS…FROM THE CANNON!”



  • Hello, nice update, but…

    Nothing was done about the keys config bug where the customized controls are fucked up when saving or sometimes randomly change during the game? This is really game breaking and makes my game almost unusable…



  • @Andrew:

    Optimization

    • Reduced memory usage of the client

    Does this mean that virtual memory will no longer run out?
    If this is the case,then I should be able to play the game fine,I guess.I will check it tomorrow.
    Anyway,nice job TB.Now focus on MW too.

    I have a fix for you, you can thank me later. Just reset your key binds in the main menu. Restart the game. Get into a server FIRST. Now change the keybinds to whatever you want. This will actually save them in perpetuity. I’ve been doing this every patch since the beta and it’s still working.

    It shouldn’t be true, as DW’s files are in a separate DLC depot that should only install if you have a DW license. I just tested disabling my DW license on my Steam account, then redownloading Chivalry, and it only grabbed MW. At the moment, to my awareness the Steam client doesn’t have any way of disabling the download of a DLC you do own, though.



  • That was quick. Good work TBS! Keep it up. 8-)



  • Thanks, I hope further optimization will come soon.



  • Do I see the word optimization in TB’s change-log list?! Never thought I would to be honest.



  • Well, other than losing ALL of my pre-patch progress and having to start over, everything seems to be working fine. Except in duel mode, when the menu gets stuck on or it despawns me or the other guy at the start of the duel.
