LIVE - BATTLETECH 1.4.0 Release Notes: The One with Localization!
Welcome to BATTLETECH 1.4! This release contains a number of quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes, as well as the official localized releases of BATTLETECH in French, German, and Russian. We have also improved performance for saving and loading games.
A few things to note about localization:
If you switch to a different language and it isn’t showing up on screen, back out to the main menu so that the language pack can refresh.
There is no noun declension in procedurally generated contracts.
BattleMech names are consistently not translated, as consistent with other BATTLETECH translations.
We hope you enjoy our latest BATTLETECH update!
IMPORTANT: Additional note for players who mod various game files… Reminder that modding is not officially supported. If you have saved a game with any mod active, that saved game will not work after an update has been applied unless you replace all modded files exactly as they were when the save game file was created. Saved games require the exact same data state in order to function properly.
As always, if you experience further issues please contact Customer Support at: https://support.paradoxplaza.com
