NordInvasion Launcher
Posted by: Naozumi - 08-04-2018, 05:09 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (11)

Hello all,

Today's big news is not an update to the game, but a new launcher. Today we are releasing the NordInvasion Launcher.

In short, this launcher has been completely rebuilt from the ground up to give you a better experience and replaces the previous updaters.

Major Features of the NordInvasion Launcher

  • Completely redesigned UI.
  • Much faster launching, checking and downloading.
  • Threaded checks and downloads (max 20 threads - if your internet can handle it!).
  • Supports multiple installations and NI betas - will automatically add any it can find (or just click the big button).
  • Supports module folders with names other than "NordInvasion".
  • Displays the latest NI News in the launcher and links the forum thread.
  • Launches the game (both steam and non-steam).
  • Selects the NordInvasion module (or whatever you named the module) on the Warband launcher when you click "Play".
  • Automatically verifies & updates the module files (enable/disable as you wish).
  • Installs like a normal program.
  • Is written in .net.
  • Finally feels like a LAUNCHER rather than just an updater.
  • Runs as a normal user rather than administrator and will elevate only if it needs to do something as administrator.
  • The UI is more responsive that some of the previous updaters.
  • All windows can be resized.

We strongly advise you move to this new version - we will likely look at disabling some of the older updaters at some point. The updater will not remove any older updaters you have installed just in case you should have some issues. If you have any issues, please file a bug report here.

The new launcher is available on the download page.

We hope you love this new launcher!

  1.9.5 Client Release

Hello NI community,

This patch provides some general bug fixes and slight item modifications, as well as completely changing the Severance from a bastard axe to a throwing axe due to awkward 2h animations and overall under performance as an item.  It was a waste of a beautiful model and we have been looking for throwing axe models for a while.

Item Changes:

  • Awakened polearm secondary modes added
  • Loss of 2h indicator on swords fixed
  • Aged Estoc -4 length
  • Pride -5 length
  • Malice +4 accuracy, +2c
  • Mangler +2 weight
  • Cursed Mangler +2.75 weight
  • Converted Severance to throwing axe
  • Phoenix Feather added to House Crafted throwing weapon recipes
Scene Updates:
  • Forgotten Bay (barriers)
  • Nordic Village (ground texture and barriers)
  • Offshore (entry point)
  • Swadian Castle (entry points and inaccessible props)
  • Swadian Temple (ai pathing)

  1.9.4 Client Release
Posted by: Winter - 25-03-2018, 03:14 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (15)

Hello NI community,

This patch continues cleaning up item progression and features a complete rework and rebalance of hoplite spears and zweihander sword secondary modes.  Hoplite spears are now much longer and have had certain item flags changed to make them much more pleasant to use and reduce how often the spears will bounce due to odd speed bonus multipliers.  Zweihander sword secondary modes no longer remove length (which led to negative ghost reach) and can no longer swing, but now do high amounts of pierce damage for taking down armored foes.  In addition, alternate mode indicators have been added for polearms that can swap to a stabbing or crush through mode.

Item Changes:

  • Harbinger bastard mode fixed
  • Dragon Halberd -3c, +9p, +2spd
  • Mangler -.5 weight
  • Cursed Mangler +1p, -.25 weight
  • Aegis Shield +100hp, +1 armor
  • Alternate mode indicators added for polearms with alternate modes
  • Hoplite spears reworked
  • Zweihander secondary modes reworked
  • Ancient Greatsword +1spd
  • Durendal +1c
  • Schlachtschwerter +5c, +2p, -2spd, +1.25 weight
  • Talhoffer -2spd, -2c, -2p
  • Headtaker -2spd, -3c
  • Forlorn Hope -3c, -3p, -1spd
  • Bidenhander -3c, -2p
  • Runic Greatsword -3c, -3p
  • Legacy -1c, -.5 weight, +1spd
Other Changes:
  • Players can no longer vote to skip Prep Time while Wraiths are alive
Scene Updates:
  • Fortress Under Siege (barriers, new beer barrel)
  • Graubergen (barriers)
  • King's Castleyard (removed unusable interactive props)
  • King's Reach (new surgeon table)
  • Nordic Village (fixed glitchy flooring, other minor adjustments)
  • Praven (entry points, barriers, new surgeon table)
  • Swadian Great Hall (entry points)
  • Swadian Old Village (fixed platforms)
  • Swadian Outskirts (barrier)
  • Swadian Temple (ai pathing, adjustment to mountaintop fortifications)
