Street Fighter 5 Gets A Post Launch Update
Substantial changes and fixes made to the game already.
Street Fighter 5 is now out, and it has sort of been a mess- online connectivity issues, missing modes, it just feels like the game was nowhere near ready to ship- beyond just having the core gameplay engine down.
Not even a full day has passed since the game launched, but Capcom have already issued an update for the game on PC and the PS4, one which attempts to address some of the issues that both versions of the game have been facing:
Network / server-side issues (PC & PS4):
- Online connectivity – login and intermittent connectivity issues should be less frequent as the service stabilizes now that all platforms and regions have launched.
- Matchmaking issues – the issue should be fixed now as the team identified the root cause and have implemented a server side fix few moments ago. Please checkhttps://mobile.twitter.com/sfvserver for the latest updates and server status
- Fighter ID corruption – a small number of PC users have reported their Fighter ID getting corrupt after account registration. We’re aware of this issue and will have a fix in place shortly to prevent this from happening further.
- Game boot-up/crashing issues – some of these issues may be attributed to certain Anti-Virus software preventing the game executable from launching due to a false-positive error. We recommend users add StreetFighterV.exe and/or the game installation directory to the exclusion list to prevent this issue.
- There are other non-reproducible crashes or stability issues that we’ll be looking into. We appreciate if you can continue sending feedback through the official Steam Bug Reporting thread with as much details as possible so that we can attempt to reproduce and fix the issue.
Feature asks (PC):
- Native DirectInput support – this was one of the more consistent requests we’ve received from the PC community. We realize many fans prefer to use their existing PS3/PS4 compatible Arcade Sticks on PC which are DirectInput-based, so we are actively looking into adding this feature in an upcoming patch. In the meantime, players can use popular XInput remapping tools such as theX360CE[www.x360ce.com].
- Expanded key re-binding functionality – we are also looking into expanding key binding option to allow customers to freely map keys beyond the default B/N/M/,/H/J/K/L keys.
- In-game language options – the currently set language is based on the Operating System’s UI language. We are looking into adding language options via the Steam client launcher in an upcoming patch.
- Resolution Switching – current design requires users to cycle through each in-between resolution setting in order to arrive at a resolution of their choice. We’ll look into making this process much simpler and less time consuming in the future.
- Lastly, we’ll provide another round of updates shortly, as soon as we have a solid timeline for when these feature additions will be ready. Please stay tuned!
So yeah, that’s a pretty substantial chaneglog. Kind of wish it had been available with the game on disc before it launched, but hey, this is par for the course these days.
Street Fighter 5 is available on PC and PlayStation 4.
