If you are unable to launch the game after the update, we recommend you to use “verify game integrity” feature to solve this situation. Indeed, it seems some users are experiencing data corruption during the patching process. How to verify game integrity: Steam (https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2037-QEUH-3335)/Uplay (https://support.ubi.com/en-US/FAQ/60/3888/how-do-i-install--uninstall--verify-a-game-in-uplay/kA030000000ee85CAA)

Important information concerning saves: on a very limited number of maps (including Ice Demons), your saves from previous version might not work due to potential corruption issues that we’ve fixed with this patch. If you have difficulties loading a particular save, please try to launch the map from the beginning and let us know if it is working better. We are sorry for the inconvenience and will do our best to reduce this kind of incident for upcoming patches.

Please refrain from using the 'pause download' option in Uplay as this could cause game crashing at launch and/or on various maps. A fix will be deployed in the future.

If you suffer a crash, please ensure you use the verify option on both Uplay and Steam http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1296139-Patch-1-2-now-available?p=11081988&viewfull=1#post11081988

We are sorry for the inconvenience

Hello Heroes,

Following the release of our first support patch last Wednesday, we are pleased to announce a small hotfix for MMH7. This new update will be titled 1.2.1 on the menu screen, so ensure you have the latest update by checking this. The hotfix is focused on performance issues and related to a save corruption.

It had been reported that after several hours of gameplay, after saving and loading multiple times, players would experience extensive load times and several RAM consumption problems. This issue was due to an exponential data increment in the save files from the Magic Guild building.

The team is currently working on a 1.3 patch for the upcoming weeks and we will keep you updated on progress as soon as possible.

Best,
The M&M Team.

--------------------------------

Might & Magic Heroes VII - Update 1.2.1
Date: October 20th, 2015
Version: 1.2.1 (rev Rev 32623)

[Fixed] A memory issue related to the Mages Guild in regards to saving and loading multiple times.

--------------------------------

In the meantime, we highly recommend you – especially Windows 10 users – to ensure your video card drivers are up to date. It has been reported by several users that performance improvements were experienced after update of those ones. Latest drivers available on: Nvidia http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx / AMD http://support.amd.com/en-us/download

...
AI performances improvements and balancing fixes

Best,
The M&M Team.

Hi,

Is it possible to have a list of those balance changes somewhere?
I believe upgraded harpies went from 35 initiative to 30 and the battlecry that increases spead only increase intitiatives by 2 from 5 before patch 1.2. I noticed that because I used them a lot. Yet it would really be helpful to have the complete list of change to see how the game evolve (at least mentionning each balance change like Object X changed FROM Y TO Z). Is there such a list somewhere or are we doomed to note every creature/skill stat before the patch then try to compare after the patch? That'd be quite a shame :s

I think you realy should focus on fixing multiplayer instead of improving AI. Who prioritize those?
Anyway, writing that you would like to remind that "will continue to support the game" after releasing only 1 patch...
umm... lets just say... I would be surprised and very dissappointed if you didn't. I would even be so surprised if you cut support for h7,
that I(alone) would not even think of it as possible, but now that you mentioned it....

Please don't hurry it up. Take time to test it right, so that lesser new bugs are introduced (don't repeat the patch 1.2 history). I'm tired of reading posts with people that can't play the game after updating, but could play it before.
Apart of that I wish you to have energy for work.

On release of 1.2 you said that next patch will fix out of sync error. Hold on to that.

Paradox games are actively supported and patched for years and multiplayer still has OOS issues, so it's not a magic bullet to fix it.

Yeah..., but there are many-many-many-many-many-many-many games with thousands online and don't have OOS issues. H6 (and some said H5 too had it) so we don't need a magic bullet, just maybe a little bit more care about the problem, what is "here" for years now...

i can understand that some People want to Play online and have a better multiplayer but AI is more important! hereos games have very Long multiplayer matches and not everyone has time to do this, everyone, even mutliplayer matches have a benefit of an more intelligent AI, it is a core of the Overall gameplay

While I agree AI is important, at least it works. Yes, it's bad. But, it works. Multiplayer just does not work, and that's not acceptable. First it has to work, then it should be refined and polished. The game includes MP, it's just not an option for them to be ok with the fact that it doesn't work.

I don't really understand the point of launching betas when you don't listen to our feedback, major MAJOR issues was reported like the dumb AI and the multiplayer out of synch issues.

And despite the fact that this was reported hundreds and hundreds of times you simply didnt care to fix these major problems that basically has made this game unplayable.

There is absolutely no point in playing this game when the AI behaves like a ****** and LAN and multiplayer is so bugged with connection issues which basically makes it impossible to play.....


This game should have either been cancelled or delayed into 2016.

We are a month after the official release date, and the game is just as buggy as it were on the release date.

Well, now the patch is out.


AI performances improvements and balancing fixes

This did not occur in the patch notes at all. So the only important thing you promised was not addressed.
Also, the multiplayer fixes you list in the patch notes are utterly nonsense:


[Fixed] Several issues where the game goes out of sync during AIs turn
[Fixed] A crash for multiplayer when flee was used in combat
[Fixed] Game getting stuck in sim turns when attacking an army without units


I never get far enough (in games without AI) to even start a fight. First desync comes after about 10 seconds. I will never ever even reach the parts that you fixed....

HI,

I have to aggre with lotoreo1, wih everything he wrote!

From UBI you wrote : several issues where the game goes out of sync during AIs turn is FIXED!
And other things that you so call FIXED!
That just cant be possible, because the MULTIPLAYER still doesnt work!

UBI you have to hurry things up with multyplayer, you are doing o.k job with these patches, but now your top priority have to be MULTIPLAYER issues.
Fix them A.S.A.P.

This is not only an ONE player game, it is MULTIPLAYER game to!
I expect this is fixed very soon!

Hello Heroes!

We are pleased to announce to you the direct availability of Patch 1.5 for Might & Magic Heroes VII.

While last patch was focusing on performance improvements, a primary topic that has been addressed with 1.5 is Multiplayer and Out of Sync issues.

The development team has been hard at work testing as many different possible scenarios that could cause the issue to arise and has made significant head way in fixing them.

However remaining transparent with our fans is always important to us and we would like to iterate that there may still be some cases where the game can go out of sync. If you experience out of sync issues post 1.5 sending us game logs and save game files helps tremendously, and it is with that kind of player base support we've already received that helped us make good progresses with 1.5.

Another exciting new addition coming with 1.5 is the inclusion of 2 new Maps. On top with this we have introduced 5 additional neutrals and 12 Heroes to discover on the following dedicated article: HERE (https://mmh7.ubi.com/en/blog/post/view/upcoming-content)

As always we want to assure you that we are continually working on making Heroes 7 the best game it can be. We'd also like to extend a thank you to you, the community, for sticking with the game and helping us by providing detailed bug reports, game logs and savegames when you've experienced a problem. This has helped tremendously and a lot of the fixes in today’s patch come directly because of the community involvement with the process.

Best, The M&M Team.

PATCH 1.5 TOP LINES:

Further improved multiplayer in combat and on adventure map for out of syncs
Additional content: 2 new Maps, 12 additional Heroes, 5 additional Neutral creatures. See dedicated article for more information! https://mmh7.ubi.com/en/blog/post/view/upcoming-content
Fixed long loading times experienced by some of the users, which were caused by recompiling low quality shaders
Improved animation system for smoother combat animations
Improved AI, Editor and other various Gameplay/Level Design elements (173 fixed bugs)
Stay tuned for more information regarding future patches!

Best,
The M&M Team.
