Exclamation Official Magicka Status Report (Jan 25th)

(Follow www.twitter.com/magickagame for up to date info - remember that devs/publisher are in Sweden - Central European Time)

Thanks for playing the game!

Here's the official status of Magicka as of now (25th of Jan).

Short story:
Singeplayer works fine for the most part, Multiplayer does not - patch on the way for both! (as soon as steam pushes the button). We'll patch the game as often as possible.


_______________________________________




Long story:

Singleplayer: Small bugs reported here and there and a bunch of them are already fixed. We're especially aware of the "middle mouse click" bug. Re-map option on the way! Devs will fix more stuff as they come in.

Multiplayer: Players are experiencing connectivity problems. In addition to that we know that we have a bug with status effects not being reported correctly on the client side in MP. This leads to a bunch of problems. The fix is in the patch!

ADDITIONAL INFO:

Some players are reporting other problems. Please follow these general steps and hopefully it'll help most of you.

Make sure you're on a computer that has sufficient juice:

MINIMUM Requirements
  • Operating system: Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7
  • Processor: Intel® Pentium® IV 2.4 GHz or AMD 3500+
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM
  • Hard disk space: 2 GB Available HDD Space
  • Video: NVIDIA® GeForce 8800 or equivalent
  • Direct X-compatible sound card
  • DirectX® 9
  • 3-button mouse, keyboard and speakers
  • Internet connection for multiplayer

We've seen that a bunch of players are reporting that the game is running poorly on their netbooks/laptops without proper graphics cards. This is the primary reason why the game is acting up.

Make sure you have the latest drivers for your graphics card. Visit www.nvidia.com or www.amd.com.

Make sure your have the following installed (should have autoinstalled)

We (devs and publisher) are super committed to fix stuff that's broken and make sure you guys can have a great time with the game.

Additionally we've also have a bunch of improvements (password for private games etc) planned and will be patched in as soon as the major issues are out of the way!

Keep letting us know if there's anything else we can do!

Thanks again for playing and watch out for friendly fire!

/ Paradox & Arrowhead Team

Thumbs up for the support. =)

There appears to be a minor desync issue in multiplayer, though it's difficult to replicate. Sometimes a player's position is not updated (3 players don't see him), and sometimes a different player claims to be dead despite having been resurrected (and killed off) repeatedly.

It's nice to see the developers being so into fixing the problems.

please use your "mod power" to make this important thread sticky!

edit: it would be also helpful for you and us to have the buglist stickied and/or linked to from here.

Thank you so very much for the reassurance and transparency. Its truly appreciated. Nothing is worse than feeling like you're shouting into the Void.

A+ for Support. I am beyond impressed.

The requirements you have posted here are different than those on the steam store page, and in fact, HIGHER than those.

You might REALLY WANT TO look into that.

Magicka store page if you want to see for yourself: http://store.steampowered.com/app/42910/

We do our best. We're gamers to and know how frustrating it is when there's no official word whatsoever at launch about issues (because there always are).

We appreciate that you're patient with the game. We promise to do our best to smoothen out issues!

Actually, is there a chance we could get patch notes?

I still get a CTD after having downloaded the patch.

Think I'll stop trying for now, all those steam updates about me playing Magicka is bound to get on my friends nerves.

I am sorry, but could you at least give me a confirmation about the acknowledgement of my problem? Only a few people seem to have it and that makes me rather hopeless.

dotNetFx35setup.exe is a bit difficult to find and the installer says that it's incompatible with x64 systems so maybe that's why its giving problems in silent mode O.o
