Single Player Patch 1.2 Notes
April 11th, 2008

Hello Hellgaters!

We’re very pleased to bring our single-player gamers up to date with this patch. We’ve been putting a lot of focus on the online space where we get a great deal of testing done on our Test Center servers. The consistent feedback and requests to have these same improvement made available for those of you that enjoy offline, single-player gaming has not gone unheard! We’re still a small studio, so getting everything done as fast as you and we want to can be a challenge. So we greatly appreciate your patience while we got this patch into the development / test / release cycle.

You’ll find tons of bug fixes, skill changes, class balances, UI updates, graphic enhancements, and much more in this patch. We hope that it makes your enjoyment of Hellgate: London all the greater!

The Hellgate: London Team

General

Based on the number and depth of balance changes to skills in this update, certain characters will be provided a “respec token” that allows them to reassign their skill points. This token is automatically placed in the character’s inventory and can be used at any time.

Fixed a bug where chat entry became visible in the Character Select screen after logging in and then logging out of the game.

Fixed a crash bug associated with exiting out of the Character Creation menu.

Players now only need to make a Normal Mode character to be able to make an Elite Mode character.

Fixed a bug which caused audio and sound effects to sometimes stop playing.

Fields from different sources can now stack. Please note that the graphics from new fields still override those of previous fields.

Players must now wait 5 seconds before they can re-enter a Hellrift.

Fixed a bug which caused weapons to disappear when swapping weapon sets in the middle of performing certain skills.

Fixed a bug which caused the /played command to display the incorrect amount of time played.

If a player dies during (or just before) a cut-scene begins playing or the game begins loading, the re-spawn options menu will come up after the cut-scene or loading screen is completed.

Vendor inventories in Nightmare difficulty should now be stocked with Nightmare-level items.

The Shock effect now deals damage immediately when it’s applied.

Several character and monster animations have been improved.

Fixed known Blueprint exploits.

Fixed a bug which sometimes caused files to require unnecessary patching.

Fixed a bug which caused the mini-game to become stuck if the player zoned to town or quit the game immediately after completing a round of the mini-game.


Memory Usage


Memory manager rewritten for better performance and stability.

Fixed a UI-related memory leak.

Fixed a clothing and armor texture-related memory issue.


User Interface/Controls


Reorganized the De-modificator, Augmentrex, and Nanoforge interfaces to appear in the left-hand panel area.

Added an auto-transparency feature to the chat window.

Players can skip all logo splash-screens with a single click.

The Mini Map is now set to the top right of the screen with character state icons appearing below.

The Chat Window is now scalable. To adjust the size of the chat window, hold down the ALT key. There is a small tab in the upper right hand corner of the chat interface that can be used to resize the window.

Skill Retrainers now have a confirmation dialogue to help players from accidentally using them.

Some UI panels have been improved.

Fixed two bugs which caused the automap fog of war to be reset either when using a PRD or in levels with hellrifts.

The [Shift], [Ctrl], and [Alt] keys are now re-mappable, and may be set as key-modifiers.

Quests


Fixed a bug with the Cannon Street Rails quest.

Fixed a bug in the Helping Hands and Triage quests where Maxim and Arphaun occupy the same place.

Fixed a bug with the Regular Customer quest where Slaughterbeast occasionally wouldn’t spawn as expected.

Characters stuck in the Holborn station after completing the game in normal mode should be able to progress.

Certain quests that could not be completed after defeating Sydonai because Emmera was no longer accessible can now be turned in to a new NPC named Sammy.

Fixed a bug which sometimes caused collection side-quest counters to count down under certain conditions.

Players can now drop the train part quest items for the “…All the Live Long Day” quest. Also players may no longer pick up these items if they do not have the quest active or if they already have the item.

New blueprints have been added for Focus Items and Boots.

Focus Items and Boots can now be made by crafters.

Unique items that were found before Patch 0.5 that are missing special attributes may now be rerolled for free. The process is as follows:
All mods must first be removed using a Delux De-Modificator. This is available once at no cost for qualifying items.

Once all the mods are removed, insert the item into an Augmentrex 3000. Now click any of the three "Add Property" buttons to reroll the item attributes.

All item attributes will be rerolled and the item balance will be up-to-date. If the item level was previously upgraded with the Nano Forge, the additional item levels will be added to the newly generated base level after the item reroll. This means that the new item level may not be the same.

Health and Power injectors now show up in high level stations.

World Movement


Players can now use the /stuck command when in Ghost form.

Fixed rare instances where certain areas were impassible.


Monsters


Monsters with the Infested ability have had their damage reduced.

The Beast of Abbadon, Oculis, and Sydonai will now re-spawn normally, even if the player has previously completed their associated quests.

Fixed some cases where monsters would get stuck in the ground.

There is no power cost for using this skill.

This skill has a chance to proc its effect (based on the skill and increasing based on the rank of the skill) for each individual firing of the skill. Since its effect is no longer dependent upon landing a critical hit, the effect of this skills will be seen much more commonly at all skill ranks and character levels.

Ravager Rounds (formerly Reflected Shot)
“The Marksman uses modified ammunition that has a chance to blow through and subsequently retarget additional enemies.”
This skill is now an Active skill. You must use this skill in order to gain the effect and functions similarly to how “fire both weapons” works.

There is no power cost for using this skill.

This skill has a chance to proc its effect (based on the skill and increasing based on the rank of the skill) for each individual firing of the skill. Since its effect is no longer dependent upon landing a critical hit, the effect of this skills will be seen much more commonly at all skill ranks and character levels.

This skill has indirect synergies with the other skills in the “Ballistics” line. Each rank in Ravager Rounds has a chance (albeit smaller) to proc when either Rebounder Rounds or Concussion Rounds are used.
EXAMPLE: The first rank of Ravager Rounds gives a 3% chance for shots to blow through and re-target a new enemy while using Ravager Rounds. Due to skill synergy, Rebounder Rounds and Concussion Rounds have a 2% chance for this effect to occur while using either of those skills.

Concussion Rounds (replaces Homing Shot)
“The Marksman uses modified ammunition designed for maximum impact.”
This skill is now an Active skill. You must use this skill in order to gain the effect and functions similarly to how “fire both weapons” works.

There is no power cost for using this skill.

This skill increases the Interrupt Strength (indirect chance to proc) of the Marksman’s weapons (based on the skill and increasing based on the rank of the skill) while the skill is used.

This skill has indirect synergies with the other skills in the “Ballistics” line. Each rank in Concussion Rounds increases Interrupt Strength (albeit by lesser amount) when either Ravager Rounds or Rebounder Rounds are used.
