Everybody is? Are you sure? I have not had any of the three points you listed signficantly alter my experience. I think you're also mistaken that everybody is talking about it. I would imagine it's only those with the problems that are talking about it... the people who are hapilly getting on and playing the game have no reason to make a noise. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
That is really weird... Every time a game crashes, before exiting I say something like "not again..." on the chat for all and every time people reply with comments like "this is the third time today" or "damned bug" or "I hope they fix these bugs soon". So if every time a game crashes it crashes for all the people I'm playing with, it's normal I assume it's happening to everybody...
I think you're using some incorrect terminology here - you're saying that every time that someone leaves the game 'it crashes' and everyone 'has to surrender'.
If the game crashed, you wouldn't be able to surrender, or talk about it in the chat afterwards.
Do you mean that when one person drops, the game ends?
I haven't seen this issue myself.
1) It is not a crash or you would not be able to surrender. There is a fix in the patch.
2) Yes, it is a problem of syncro with Steam Cloud), we can't do anything.
3) Not a bug, and not really a problem, you can make plane too and you can make AA on the border.
The patch is being tested. It will be released soon (I hope).
1) did have this problem a LOT in Free Weekend. Since I set my graphics to Very Low problem was solved (I do have onboard 3200 GPU).
Maybe your settings are to high?
It seams that the game is EXTREMELY affected by even minimal slowdown in your system. It is resource heavy (on the other hand when i accidentally started game 3v0 (yeah you can do that) and we were building Admins, a lot of admins, and than A lot of units
(we had like 11k cash at some moment) I was able to produce more than 100 uits in single order (light tanks) we had stacks of HUNDREDS of units, and game crashed for both my friends at the very end when we moved all the armies (more than thousand units) Game auto-kicked them. So i do not understand why it is so easily affected in other multiplayer games. But anyway. I had for example to turn off sound effects in my sound card, cos in rare occasions it caused me being disconnected (but softly, it was not breaking game for others, others saw that as me surrendering and for me everybody else was surrendering.) due to high CPU usage. And also sometime steam gets realy busy with something cosing me to lag, but most of the time steam lags stabilize themselves soon enough.
1)I had no freezes after someone drops after the patch.
2)Levels are back. It was steams fault.
3)Fine with me. I sometimes use it. Not a bug since you can do same yourself.
Only big bugs are lobbies that are very glitchy. Basicly after someone leaves lobby it is best to rehost it. And desync issue that is already fixed. We are just waiting for the patch to go trough official canals to steam. So it is slowly getting better. I would risk statement that game is playable again, and for sure will be when desync path will hit steam.
Man, I haven't seen a good complaint about "planes can go around the edges" for awhile.
Last time i saw such was beta, people learned to live with it and use it for their needs.
I have recently purchased From Dust through Steam and the CD key does not work. I find this very unprofessional and would like a refund being that Steam does not supply any refunds at this moment at time.
Since when do you get Keys when you order a game through Steam?!
