    Patch 1.29.1 is live on Battle.net!

    This fixes the majority of significant issues and bugs that were on the PTR. We're hearing and getting reports of a bunch of custom maps that broke before are up and dandy again, so that's good news.

    In the full patch notes from Blizzard, there is also a list of known issues that should be fixed in later hot-fixes / patches. If there are issues still worth reporting that aren't acknowledged by Blizzard, please report them. Cheers, on to the next ones!

    Patch 1.29.1 PTR


    Patch 1.29.1 aims to fix a multitude of issues with installation, broken custom maps, and some faults with the editor. It also releases a few changes such as increasing the BNet channel and clan limit to 255. Please test and see if this patch fixes the issues with custom maps, the editor, GB installation, and other bugs!

    Full patch notes and PTR version download:
    https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20762147702

    NOTE: I will edit this thread when 1.29.1 goes live; no need for another thread when this and other hot fix patches releases.

    Omg, he is back!

    I hope they release the patch soon enough.

    One strange thing is that they didn't include in the bug list that ARRANGED TEAM games are broken.

    Polish language is broken too.

    I hope for the increased camera view they had on early 1.29 PTR build. At least optional if nothing else.

    Good question. Basically we can do the testing on the actual patch they've just released.

    Will the 1.29.1 aim only to fix issues or they'll add other natives too? As far as I know there are still a lot of natives mentioned in the Producer Update: Natives List thread that weren't added yet.
    Also, idk if it has already been said but, I have a small bug since the 1.29 update, when I try to test a map in the editor I can't, unless i saved the map first. It's not a big problem after all but I just wanted to know if this happens only to me XD

    That will come with time.
    For me it didn't want to save the test map at all. It worked after going to the editor's preferences and deleting everything but Maps from the Test Map path directory field.

    Hero glow for Player 12 is still wrong in the PTR.

    Has the image border bug been fixed yet? If not, someone should suggest it.

    This probably gets even more important now that we have a mouse api.

    (The pixels of an Images right and lower (?) corner get repeated, resulting in nasty artifacts if your image does not have transparent borders).

    Be nice if they'd fix the windows 10 cinematic issues for the campaigns.

    ^ They could just use remastered cinematics that they released on DVD, why use this compressed crap?

    I wish they could but, wouldn't that mean downloading them again after each patch?

    One would think that it'd mean downloading them once. Why download them multiple times?

    You have to re-download A LOT of files that are the same after each patch, why not these ones?

    Honestly, no idea, but that seems suboptimal.

    I hope custom models and imported sound/music datas (mp3) still work on these new patches. I haven't updated to 1.29 yet. Does the sharpcraft editor still work on 1.29? Because i have exceeded the max doodad number in my map already so that i can only edit my map with the sharpcraft editor.

    Can anyone post the download here? I'm having trouble reaching the US network to update my Wc3 because my lowkey modem in Southeast Asia cant download the patch.
