Patch question.

#1 Posted by sextus1 (740 posts) -

I promise not to hog this board for a long time but I have just ONE more question. Where do I go to check for patch updates? I went to TW Centre and noticed a post from Radius that mentioned his total mod was compat. with Patch 3. Heck I'm not sure if I even have one although a while back when loading this game via Steam it took a 12 minutes delay that was headlined as "update". Not sure if patchs are done vial Steam or we have to go elsewhere. Help is much appreciated.

As far as I know they are done with Steam. That is how I have gotten all my updates. I am pretty sure I have only gotten update/patch 2 so far. I always get them late.

Your game will still say version 1. But it will have a different long end number at the start-up menu. If I am correct (but I may not be) then patch 3 has the end number 7018.455411. I copied that number down from a different thread who knows maybe it represents patch 2. You can also opt into Beta patch 3 by going to your Rome II Steam properties and signing up for the Beta. I do not sign up for the Beta patches because I've heard it messed up peoples' games. Just thought I'd let you know that is an option.

Sorry I could not be of more help or offer an exact answer. By all means feel free to hog the board: The board could use some life imo.


Actually that long number I gave you I think it represents patch 2. I don't think I have gotten patch 3 yet, and that is the number displayed in my game. I hope to have patch 3 by tonight or Friday hopefully.

At steam make sure your setting for Rome II is set to "update automatically." I think that is the default setting. If you want the updates automatically, if not set it to "don't update automatically."

Your reply gives me more assurance that the updates will come from Steam direct (which is about the only good thing Iwill say about Steam). I was on the TW Centre and one poster stated that Patch 3 was expected to be delivered on Friday, Sept. 26..Please let it address effectively some of the bugs that have cropped up from time to time. Thanks.

I just saw someone on Steam write that we will get the official patch 3 after the weekend.

I am still hoping for this Friday. Looks like they delayed it.
