'Overlord' - v1.4 Update Patch Available NOW

by Rainier on Dec. 6, 2007 @ 6:25 a.m. PST

In the game¬ís seriously warped fantasy world, players will become the Overlord and get first-hand experience of how ¬ďabsolute power corrupts absolutely". You could be a regular run-of-the-mill Overlord. However, with incredible power at your disposal and a team of evil-minded impish critters, the Minions, on hand to do your bidding, how will you resist the temptation to be wonderfully despotic?!

Get the Overlord v1.4 Patch off WP (75mb)


INSTALLATION

Download and run OverlordPatch1.4.exe, then follow the onscreen instructions.

N.B. This patch can be applied to both the retail PC version of Overlord and to versions of the game which have been patched to 1.2.
PC Patch 1.4 can also be applied to Overlord Raising Hell.
Overlord Raising Hell can be patched directly to 1.4 without needing to patch to 1.2
Patching Overlord Raising Hell to 1.2 prior to patching with 1.4 is unnecessary.

The patch may prompt players to locate the Overlord Installation folder. This will happen if it cannot find the Overlord registry key, which can be caused if you uninstalled the demo after installing the main game.

Overlord v1.4 Game Features

* Split Screen

Select the Split Screen option on the Main Menu to start a Split Screen match. You can choose from any of the Slaughter, Pillage and Co-op Survival maps and change Time and Score limit for each. Maps include a new free Survival map called Rocky Race.
You must have a second input device to play a Split Screen match. Player 1 will use Keyboard and Mouse and Player 2 will use a Gamepad.
Use the “Config” tool to change key and button settings.

* amBX

OVERLORD PC Patch 1.4 is designed to support the amBX™ PC gaming peripheral. To ensure it is set up correctly:
- Run Start Menu -> Programs -> Codemasters -> Overlord -> Config
- Select the Video tab
- Select “amBX”
- Click “Save & Play”

VERSION 1.4

  • Quitting and saving at the start of the Jewel Tower cutscene no longer results in the “Speak to Jewel” Quest remaining incomplete. Existing Save Games affected by this issue will also be fixed, if the following steps are taken:
    1. Leave the Tower using the Tower Heart Portal.
    2. Visit any domain.
    3. Return to the Tower using any Waypoint Gate /Save Stone.
    4. The Jewel cutscene will play on returning to the Tower. Jewel will be present in the Tower and the “Speak to Jewel” quest completes.
  • Patch enables players with the Overlord Raising Hell boxset to play Online/LAN matches with Overlord players (who have also patched to 1.4).
  • A number of additional minor / rare issues resolved
  • All 1.2 fixes

VERSION 1.2

  • 30FPS cap has been removed. The game can now run at higher frame rates if your video card supports it.
  • Refresh rate is set by default to the lowest available within the Configuration Tool.
  • Potential desync in Multiplayer resolved. This could occur in Co-op Survival / Versus matches when Tower Objects were collected. Only affects games containing a machine with an Athlon 64 processor.
  • Minions can now cross the entire length of a bridge in the Ruborian Desert while carrying a health upgrade back to a Tower Gate.
  • Fixed an exploit which allowed players to forge/upgrade equipment without losing any minions.
  • Melvin will now never reappear in the Halfling Party Area after he has been killed. Existing Save Games affected by this issue will also be fixed.
  • The ‘Kill Kahn’ quest will now always show as completed when Khan is defeated. Existing Save Games affected by this issue will also be fixed.
