Hot Fix

Posted by Development | 2014 Sep 08 11:07 -0400 GMT
A small hot fix has just gone up that should fix the issues with Keeps displaying texture-less wall-toppers at some upgrade levels.

With this fix, in order to login, players will need to run the patcher once to get the change; otherwise, an error will be seen when loading the game client.

3 Realms, 7 Questions, 5 Winners...1 Grab Bag!

Posted by Community | 2014 Jun 20 19:35 -0400 GMT

Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of the Dark Age of Camelot Grab Bag! Sir Grabford is still in Carol's dungeon for his theft of her last Grab Bag, so he will not be availble for questions today. The good news is that your good friends on the Dark Age of Camelot Team are!

For your chance to win a 30 Day Game Time Code, please submit your Grab Bag questions to daoc@broadsword.com or via PostCount using the following link:      http://www.postcount.net/forum/forms.php?do=form&fid=5

Q: Things are being worked on. God bless. But is there anyway we could see what you are working on and your priority list are at todays game ?

A: On the horizon are a few initiatives which will broaden the communication between Broadsword and our players. Basic information given through, say, the Grab Bag can be informative – but it’s not always the best way to communicate our vision and progress. We are looking forward to providing video patch notes, dev diaries, and interviews/Q & A with the Dev team so that you can receive important information on a more frequent basis!
