View Full Version : Uplay PC Client – March 2016 Update

03-03-2016, 12:01 PM
Hello Folks,

We're back again with another update for you all. This month we're making it a little easier to find new friends as well as see what your current friends have been playing and we're making some other improvements to game pages. Check below for more info on what this update includes.

Changes in this release:

Friend Suggestions have been added to the friend list in the in-game overlay
A notification is now displayed when sending a friend request to a suggested friend
Videos displayed in the “Videos” section of a game page will now be played inside the client rather than opening a browser
Supported games pages now show friends that also play that game
Uplay will now apply updates to games in a “preload” or “preloaded” state when available. This will be particularly beneficial in relation to day 1 patches and making sure that you’re able to get in game in the shortest time possible on launch day

Bug fixes:

Fixed an issue whereby newly created accounts could not be found by other users nor would their friend requests show for others
Fixed an inconsistency regarding the Download/Play button not showing the correct state when a game supporting progressive download has an update pending
Fixed chat notifications displaying multiple times after a friend had stopped sending messages
Fixed a client crash that sometimes occurred when launching Might & Magic: Heroes VI from Steam on Windows 10 (64-Bit)
Fixed 3rd party games disappearing from the Notification Tray icon menu when switching from Online to Offline mode (and vice versa)
Fixed an issue in which re-mastered games would display a “Verify File” option when the game is not installed
Fixed an issue that allowed interaction with Download buttons while the client is in offline mode
Fixed an issue when using the client in Russian that caused the context menu for pending friend requests to appear cut off
Fixed an issue which caused the most recently completed Club Action to not display as localized

That’s all for now. Keep the suggestions and feedback, we're always looking to improve Uplay and we'll have some more good stuff for you in the future.

The Uplay Team

This update is causing The Crew to crash when uplay hooks in. Hopefully this doesn't affect The Division tonight or it's gonna be some pretty bad PR for a launcher people already don't like to use.

Will be submitting my logs shortly.
