Painkiller Patch v1.64

Dreamcatcher have released the v1.64 patch for painkiller today. The patch is pretty much the same as the v1.63 patch and has the following readme:

– FIX: Freezer bug
– FIX: Dead bodies bug
– FIX: Gold Armor bug

– FIX: If a certain path is taken you cant proceed (Docks) is fixed.

– FIX: Items now disappear correctly.
– FIX: Demon morph mode is recorded in demos.
– FIX: Sometimes demos were playing with incorrect speed.

NOTE: Version 1.64 can be installed only on PK ver 1.62 or 1.63.

We had expected v1.64 to be a standalone install to support installs from v1.0. The release of this ~6MB patch is a little puzzling as no changes above and beyond 1.63 are obvious. The official servers in the US are rolling to 1.64 shortly (if not already) and we expect the European servers to follow suit soon. At this time, we do not believe PK++ will work with v1.64 but will look to remedy this in the near future.

*EDIT* PK++ now supports 1.64, current version is Run Steamfish in the usual way to update. Standalone installer will follow shortly.

Vo0 Wins CPL WT Stop #1!

Vo0 has come through the field to win yet again! In a nail biting final, SK|Zyz defeated Vo0 in the first match to bring it head to head for the title. The second match then swung in Vo0s favour and he clinched the title in two straight maps. The final Standings look as such:

1st fnatic.Vo0 ($15k)
2nd SK|Zyz ($10k)
3rd Stermy ($7K)
4th Fatal1ty ($5K)
5th fnatic.gellehsak ($3.5K)
6th x6.Lexer ($2.5K)
7th SK|Stelam ($1.75K)
8th Daler ($1.25K)

Looking through the predictions made by you all, only Anon from Germany got the top three guys (but in the wrong order). A few of you predicted Vo0 1st and Zyz 2nd but missed Stermy out for 3rd. …and I thought you were all experts 😉

Congrats to the top 6 who all recieve free trips to the next World Tour stop along with oodles of cash. Apologies for our very limited coverage but Easter weekend is never best for getting reporters at their keyboards. Well try better next time! 🙂
