Another patch brings more fixes for bug plagued title
Those that have been waiting for the next patch for Frontlines Fuel of War will have to wait no longer as Kaos Studios has released a new patch. The PC version of this eagerly awaited FPS title has been plagued by a variety of bugs, both big and small since release.
Fixes with the 1.02 patch include –
. Crashes when locking the screen during loads has been fixed (i.e. Using Alt+Tab).
. Server browser will no longer show servers that are not running.
. Alt+Tab will work properly in Windows Media Center.
. Lockups/crashes while “Please Wait” popup is on screen have been fixed.
. Player no longer becomes stuck in an unresponsive menu after quitting a match at the end of a round.
. NAT (Network Address Translation) – Listen Server now shows public IP and can be joined.
. Fix for infinite loops that occasionally appear in single player.
. Fix for hang issue/crash for Chinese and Korean native operating systems.
. Game will no longer crash when the user suspends the game using Ctrl+Alt+Del or Win+L on the splash screen after the game launch.
. New .dll’s to address sound card issues added.
. Fixed Japanese character issue on scoreboards.
. Russian fonts fixed.
. Polish, Chinese, and Czech language support added.
. Player count sort fixed on server browser.
While the latest 1.02 patch does address some of the nagging problems that have caused players a lot of issues with the title, already some have said that the patch does not go far enough to resolve many of the problem issues. In the FFOW forums, many users continue to complain about issues with the game and a variety of problems that still need addressed.
Kaos Studios seems to be committed to resolving issues with FFOW and trying to enhance the game with each released patch. Unlike other developers, Kaos has been very active in the forums and communicating with the players and keeping them up to speed on the latest developments with the title.
The sad thing is that many have already given up on the title and moved on to other games or back to games that they were previously playing. Kaos has the patch 183MB patch available for download on their Web site in a variety of versions.
Those that purchased the title through electronic distribution using Steam or TryMedia will have to wait until they get their specialized version of the patch up for download, but Kaos expects it to be available to Steam and TryMedia owners of FFOW shortly.
