Killer Instinct Gets Another Patch

By Marc Hollinshead, 4 years ago
The recent addition to Killer Instinct's roster, Spinal, has helped to mix things up a bit, because who doesn't love a new character in a fighting game? With his entrance, a few bugs have appeared in the game, so Double Helix have been hard at work to address them. As well as this, a number of general fixes have been made alongside fixes for the game's Jail system. The full patch notes can be seen below:

· All “Jail” stats have been RESET aka “clean slate”
· Fix to bug where BOTH players would go to jail on disconnect
· Adjusted percentage rate for match disconnects that will cause the user to be sent to jail.

· Fix for Spinal teleport causing crash/ de-sync in corner against back dashing opponents.
· Fix to manuals being unbreakable after using the dive kick as an opener
· Fix to counter breakers not being accessible when using a divekick as an opener.
· Fix to second Spinal divekick snapping to ground if you do it while opponent is still in reaction from first dive kick
· Fix bug with Spinal skeleport linker not crossing up correctly

-Users no longer lose points when losing a match in Survival Mode
-Fixed an issue where progression data would not save. All user data, items acquired, etc. should now save properly.
-Potential Fix for Ultra audio glitch (may still happen and needs more investigation).
-If you perform an ULTRA COMBO in-game, you automatically win the match. Players who disconnected while their opponents perform a match-winning ULTRA COMBO, will take a loss on their win/loss stats.
-Fixed an issue where players would soft-lock on the character/stage loading screen. This issue has been resolved.
-The character select option from “Replays” has been removed.
Double Helix are also aware that issues have been reported regarding the game's replays, so they are on the case to sorting that out. They urge players to report any other bugs they encounter on this thread, so if you notice anything peculiar, be sure to do that.
