- Can now be parried
What does this mean, exactly? Is the explosion supposed to be parryable now?
If it is, then the parry sound and effect can be heard/seen, but the explosion still kills you outright if close enough.
Got the beta, installed the game. This occurs on both the last version (that shipped with the beta) and the current update.
Launching the game takes some time no matter what (seems to be a feature of Unreal 3 & 4 at this point).
After launch, all settings are automatically set to highest (ultra, I think it was), I only changed post-processing to low.
I have no framerate issues, everything is pretty smooth, even when there is a lot going on.
The game is installed on a healthy 7200 RPM hard drive and the initial map loading (when the game is launched after being freshly installed) is fast, any map loads within seconds, even for the first time after launch. Same thing after map change.
The loading time problem starts when I launch the game after the PC was rebooted/powered back on after a shutdown:
after launching the game, joining any server (with any current map) takes 3 to 5 minutes, with the loading screen just freezing/muting for the last minute (which I thought was a crash at first, but it still loads eventually).
After the map finally loads and if I pick a team and class fast enough, some assets/textures are still visibly being streamed (this does not happen when freshly installed, even though the map loads so fast) and short freezes occur for a minute or so. On map change, the loading isn’t as slow (~1 minute), but still nowhere near as fast a on a fresh install.
Within a couple of days like this, I just tried uninstalling/reinstalling through Steam after booting up without touching the config files (all my settings and bindings were saved) and it seemed to work, the loading times were back to being ridiculously fast.
Then it was back to slow the next day, and reinstalling the game without rebooting fixed it again.
Is this some kind of cache issue that the game creates after the first launch?
My current OS/hardware:
Win7 Ultimate x64 SP1
i5 4690k @ stock speeds
16 GB RAM (1600 MHz, dual channel)
Gigabyte Geforce GTX 970
1 TB WD Black (game is installed on this hard drive, separate drive from Steam)
Potentially dumb question, you try restarting Steam?
Of course I did, numerous times (as I said in the OP).
Kill the Steam process. ctrl+alt+delete, End Steam.exe. Then re-open it.
Also make sure all games are visible in your library.
I tried restarting, killing it, deleting userdata.
I have my library set to show all games, and it doesn’t show up in search either.
I guess all there is left is to wait.
Edit: We got a new theory now, as strange as it is. We bought the 4-pack, and the friend who bought it got the beta, the ones who got the game gifted (including me) didn’t. Another friend just bought it sepparately himself, he got it too. Could it be that everyone who got it as a gift did not recieve the beta?
As I understand, the new Chivalry beta should be available now for everyone as a sepparate app, however after several restarts (and trying to install it via steam://install) I’m still not having any luck.
A couple of my friends didn’t get it either, while two others did.
Hope this issue is resolved and thanks in advance.
