Patch Notes

Blacklight March update [8 Mar 2016]

Updated: 2016-03-08 2:34:24 PM

Important to Note:

  • – If you are experiencing problems with the older Weapon Skins, please unequip and re-equip them to fix it.
    – All Weapon Tags with effects have been updated and replaced with Trophies. If you had a Weapon Tag with an effect it has been changed to a Trophy. This is a game design change that we thought long and hard about. It ended up making more sense to have effects on the character to be associated with Trophies instead of Weapon Tags.

PS4 HOSTING REFACTOR PASS 1:

Wifi users will be marked as not viable hosts early on in the hosting qualification determination sequence. This only affects Quick Join/Match, Private Matches are unaffected entirely. Can be disabled via the ini flags.

+ Added function to check if the current console is on eth or wlan.

This function allows us to ping the current netadapter to figure out what process is used. It’s a part of the Online Subsystem, and is usable in C++. Only PS4 has this implemented.

+ Added new config flags that can turn off these features as needed.

bPreventWifiHosts (true) – by default starts filtering users who have wifi to not be used in host determination and will get a heavy rating against them
HostSelectionWifiPenalty (60.0f) – Users who are on wifi get this penalty applied to them (higher means will be ignored for other clients)
HostSelectionStrictNatPenalty (125.0f) – If a user is on a strict NAT, apply this penalty to them.

– Removed depricated host determination/migration code

Lots of script code was deleted due to deprication. It is not used currently and is taking space/being confusing.

Blacklight Retribution Parity Patch [27 July 2015]

Hello all! Thanks for your interest and continuing support of Blacklight Retribution – both on PC and PS4. 🙂

The purpose of this document is to outline most, if not all, of the changes that the game has undergone since our last major patch on PS4. What you see described in detail below reflects changes to the game since that last major patch. Note that since then, on PS4, we did release a small patch that added some Rocket League (great game, check it out!) content and a small fix for the “HRV Glitch”.

Additionally, included below, is a quick summary of all the changes to the PC that PC users will be experiencing. In all honesty, there have been so many changes to Blacklight since the last PC patch that digging up and reviewing ALL of the changes would have been impossible, that we are only going to provide a quick summary, based mostly on the FAQ that we previously posted on our website (www.hardsuitlabs.com/2015/05/blacklight-parity-patch-update-news/).

So below you will find three sections to this document:

  1. Summary of changes to PC game based on our FAQ
  2. Export from our JIRA of fixed Bugs and completed Tasks since March 25, 2015
  3. Export from our source control of relevant changes to the game since March 25, 2015

In their totality, the above 3 things should give you a sense of how the game has evolved and how you may or may not be affected.

So with out further ado, here are the changes that you can review:

SECTION 1: Summary of changes to PC game based on our FAQ

For reference you can find the FAQ here: http://www.hardsuitlabs.com/2015/05/blacklight-parity-patch-update-news/

***NOTE: All of your settings and loadouts will need to be reconfigured!!!***

– New Install size should be about 5.09 GB
– Old BLR Build with the folder “LIVE” under it can be deleted
– New launcher build and deployed for PC Users
– Logging in now happens in the launcher/patcher and no longer in the actual game client
– Game does not require the ARC client to be running. Can launch the patcher directly if you want.

Items and Inventory Related:

– Datanodes have been removed from the game
– Datanodes in a users inventory have been deleted
– Game no longer supports an inventory that players have to manage. Instead it behaves more like an unlock system
– Game no longer supports inactive items. Items are now always activated at time of purchase
– Items owned by users that were inactive, are, as of now, activated.
– If a user owned multiple timed durations of the same item, those items are now combined into a single item with a duration equal to the combined duration of those items. Some additional “bonus” time has been added as well to account for the upgrade process.
– If a user owned multiple instances of a permanant item, they will keep the first instance of that item. Additional instances are deleted.
– Mail system has been removed
– Items left in the mail system have been deleted
– Merchant Pass has been deleted. It is no longer relevant
– Any Inactive XP Tokens you own have been activated and applied to your account, up to the max level cap.

– New weapon attachment system – attachments are now purchased on a per reciever basis. If you buy a scope and want it on 3 guns, you will need to buy it 3 times.
– Existing players, who up until now had had global attachments, will get copies of those attachments for all weapons that they own. Thus their current user experience will not change, but if they buy a new gun in the future, they will need to get the corresponding attachments, if they so desire.
– Pricing for attachments shouls be updated to reflect the neeed to potentially purchase said attachment multiple times
– Premade/Preset weapons no longer exist
– If you owned a permanant version of a premade, you now have all those disparate parts permanantly instead. Those parts are applied to the relevant reciever that was the premade you owned.
– If you owned promotion premade then you own all the parts as per the above, plus a title commemorating that premade. For example, users who owned The Burning Sensation premade, will now get a Burning Sensation title in addition to the parts of the premade
– Heroes have been removed from the game as you previously knew them. New Heroes function as character skins – basically the same thing as a Camo, but instead of just changing your camo color, they can change your entire model, geometry included. These can be found under the Camo/Skin selector in customization.
– If you owned a hero permanantly, you now own their Skin, Depot Weapon, Premade (broken up as per above), and taunt instead.
– Hero taunts have been broken up to be able to work with all characters (kinda). There is a bug associated with this currently where a female hero taunt works fine on a femal model, but on a male model it will break. We are fixing this. In the meanwhile, you have the taunts, but you may not be able to properly use them until we get a new fix out.
– Blacklight Prime has been awarded to all existing PC users.
– Blacklight Prime unlocks GP Permanant prices for all GP purchasable items.
– Other items are available for GP Permanant prices on a weekly rotation. Additionally, some other items are always avaiable for GP Permanant (Combat Rifle, SMG, e.g.)
– All EXISTING PC USERS will get Blacklight Prime automatically.

– Exotic ammo types are no longer controlled via magazines – new category “ammo type” has been added
– Magnum ammo is currently identical to normal ammo, but has different visual/audio fx. When Magnum ammo gets updated you will have it already if you own it now (pre-parity).
– Explosive and Electro have their old functionality but will be updated along with Magnum ammo. Like magnum ammo you will already have it if you own it now (pre-parity).
– Explosive, Electro and Magnum will not be for sale until they are updated.
– Incendiary and Toxic ammo types have been updated to reflect latest functionality from the console.
– Toxic ammo now does less damage on impact than normal ammo, but applies a small toxic damage over time and temporarily reduces the maximum health for a limited period of time
– Toxic Gear now prevents the reduced maximum health debuff from Toxic Ammo
– Incendiary ammo now does less damage on impact than normal ammo, but applies a burn damage over time. The DOT for incendiary is larger than for Toxic.
– There are possibly other changes that we may have missed. Consider this to be “fine print”.
