The second official patch is here!

 

Today we are happy to present you the second official patch of Might & Magic X – Legacy Early Access. As well as delivering many game improvements, we are very excited to announce that this second patch for MMX Early Access comes bundled with the MMX Modding Kit, allowing you to create your very own adventures!

 

Second Official Patch for Might & Magic X - Legacy Early Access

 

Before we talk about all the exciting things we have in store, we wanted to thank you all for the numerous messages posted on the Open dev blog and forums. MMX would certainly not look so gorgeous today without you.

 

Let's talk about the Modding Kit release first! We really wanted to get this powerful kit into your hands as soon as possible, so that you can dive straight into creating and playing mods before the game is actually fully released. In addition to this, we are currently developing a new feature for the website, the Maps & Mods tab, which will enable you to share your mods with other fans and track down the best mods out there. This feature is not ready yet, but our web developer (Open Dev Blog’s father Supacoco) is working hard to release it before the end of the year, and when finished it will be accessible to everyone from the Open Dev blog.  

                      

Modding Kit of Might & Magic X - Legacy

 

The Modding Kit is an extremely flexible, feature-rich tool, and we wanted to show you some examples of the amazing mods that it can produce. That is why a few weeks ago we contacted two modders from the MMX community--one from RPG Codex and the other a MMX Ultimate Adventurer from the Open Dev Blog! They are currently creating their own mods that will be available when the Maps & Mods feature goes live. If you too are interested in modding, then you should totally check out the following guide: MODDING KIT GUIDE.

 

With the Modding Kit installed you can immediately start creating your own adventures or just have fun discovering all its features. However you use the kit, what you learn will be very valuable in the near future when a special modding contest is announced… Watch this space!

 

Now let’s check out what this second patch brings to MMX!

 

Here are the new features of the Second Official Patch:

  • New interactive objects have been added: Liquid Barrels and Buff Statues.
  • New game options. Barks can now be deactivated, and the same goes for game messages and floating damage numbers. You can now also change the opacity for tooltips and the quest/action log.
  • Korean language version is now available.
  • And last but not least, you can make your own notes on the Minimap. (cf. article Feature Preview: Map Notes)

 

In addition, some important bug fixes have been implemented:

  • Several issues where players got stuck in combat have been fixed.
  • We also fixed several bugs where people got stuck outside of combat.
  • Several UI overlaps have been removed.
  • Items should no longer disappear from your inventory when moved.
  • Various buttons and interaction icons that didn’t work have been fixed.

 

Notes on the complete patch can be found here. All in all, since the last patch, about 150 bugs have been fixed. However, we didn’t strip Mamushi of his right to move diagonally and attack within the same turn. It’s a feature!

IMPORTANT NOTICE

  • Using old saves from previous versions of the game will cause issues. For example, items at the vendors will be displayed in the wrong order and items that you had in the inventory before installing the patch will be lost. Therefore, we recommend that you start a new game after updating the game.
  • For Uplay customers, it is crucial that all 3 parts of the 2nd patch are installed before loading the game.

 

Finally we are still working on the following known issues:

  • [Freeze][Save/Load] The battle turns won’t end when encountering Brigands in the 1st floor of the Lair of Thief, after having the game saved and loaded again in front of the opened middle door.
  • [Freeze][Iven] Game freezes if the player interacts with the door and afterwards fights Iven’s brigands.
  • [UI][Options] The drop-down Language menu in Options cannot be fully displayed.
  • [Monsters][Animation] Monster animations move slower than their actual speed. E.g. Player can see monsters' red spots shown in the minimap, even though the monsters didn’t move or are not yet in the line of sight. Sometimes monsters will move two tiles in one turn, because their animation in the previous turn was delayed.
  • [Condition][Feebleminded] The portrait UI will become disordered when a character suffers the Feebleminded Condition from monsters.

 

Once again, we would like to thank everyone who helped bring this game forward with their comments, feedback and bug reports. Your contributions are very much appreciated, keep up the good work!

 

Cheers

 

Your MMX team
