1.2.7b Patch Notes 19-6-2012

Servers was down for a short maintenance today,  and as always BioWare took the time to patch the game. Today is more a tweak then a real patch though, as BioWare only decreased  the maximum number of simultaneous players on the Imperial and Republic Fleets. This is a pretty good move if you ask me as I notice my framerate drop from ~50fps to ~19fps while on fleet with 250+ people.  I hope this just implies more instances though.  Coming from having 4 people on my fleet at peak times,  100 people+  seem like a party! And if there were 6 instances of 100, thats 6 parties! Below are the patch notes: 1.2.7b Patch Notes 6/19/2012 General In order to improve overall performance, the maximum number of simultaneous players on the Imperial and Republic Fleets has been decreased —-

1.2.3a Patch Notes – 5/10/2012

BioWare did some emergency patching today, fixing the issue with Matrix Cubes disappearing. Funny thing is the patch is about 50 mb, so I guess that the weight of A Matrix Cube 😉 General An issue that caused some mission items (such as Matrix Cubes) to disappear from player inventories has been corrected. Players that were affected by this issue will find their Matrix Cubes restored. The restored Matrix Cubes can be re-equipped from the Mission Inventory (Press “I” and then select the “Mission Items” tab at the bottom of the window).

1.2.3 Patch Notes – 5/8/2012

I guess we can say that Tuesday is not patch day.  It’s seem like it’s more the more the rule than the exception these days anyways. Below are the patch notes for today’s update.  Some nice fixes in EC in here.  Personally I like these changes:  Custom (orange) moddable items that have no modifications installed can now be reverse engineered. and The default value for the Rarity field is now Standard instead of Any. This allows players to search for most items without requiring that they select an option in the Rarity field. Classes and Combat General Corrected an issue that prevented Smugglers and Imperial Agents from taking cover in place while moving Channeled abilities now fully complete if a buff providing an Alacrity bonus wears off while the ability is being channeled. Flashpoints and Operations Flashpoints Boarding Party This Flashpoint’s Hard Mode no longer has a daily limitation. Operations General Players now receive a “Timed Run” buff…

Trooper Commando Plasma Cell now correctly deals its damage 3 times per application. Companion Characters General Corrected an issue that caused companion stat bonuses from equipped items to be miscalculated when the companion was resummoned. Crew Skills General Corrected some performance issues related to opening the crafting window if it contained a very large number of schematics. Crafting Skills Some gear that could be reverse engineered but erroneously displayed the “No Research Available” tooltip has been corrected. Gathering Skills Slicing Premium Slicing lockboxes now yield the correct…

1.2.1 Patch Notes 4/24/2012

As always BioWare used today’s server maintenance to patch up. This time with the largest patch since 1.2. If you me, the most important issue corrected, is the issue that prevented players from adding offline players to their friends list. This makes it much easier to mail stuff to your alts.  Unfortunately still doesn’t seem to work for our own cross faction alts.
