#1 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -

Some notes have been posted over on the capcom forumsdetailing an upcoming patch for 3rd Strike Online due on the 27th september:

  • Fixes a bug that made it difficult to get into a Ranked Match, especially during times of peak traffic.
  • Fixes a bug that could cause players to have very large disconnection percentages (> 100)
  • Fixes a bug that could cause characters to become invisible online, or to be displayed with incorrect colors.
  • Fixes a bug that sometimes caused Hugo’s combo trial #2 to not detect correctly
  • Fixes a bug that permitted an exploit in Trial mode when using "stun" settings
  • Fixes some rare crashes
  • Improves network stability
  • Adds support for additional DLC packs
  • Raises the online level cap

The patch is currently going through the submissions process, and we are targeting a 9/27 release date. Make sure to check back as we will have more news about this update.

Also, we are working on another patch that will address some additional items, as well as add some new functionality to the game (hello dummy recording in training mode!).

The biggest one for me is the ranked match fix but the addition of dummy recording in training mode is certainly welcomed, although it should have been in there in the first place.....

If I didn't have people on my friends list who played I wouldn't have got many games myself, takes so long to get into a match :(

Finally! I got this a week ago and had a hard time believing the online functions as poorly as it does. Great game, even though I really really suck at it. :(
