Greetings, friends and fellow Necromunda: Underhive Wars players!
As always, we hope that this message finds you well.
Following last month’s fourth Major Update, we’re back today with a small-yet-important hotfix that was requested by multiple community members, in response to the possible corruption of some (generally older) Commander Profiles.
Since this particular piece of save game data holds information about all completed Infamy Tasks, as well their associated Infamy Points, we thought it important to provide all players with an optional tool that will - should the need arise - allow you to repair and reinitialize said Commander Profile.
A TOOL TO REINITIALIZE AND RECALCULATE INFAMY POINTS
What is this tool for?
The Commander Profile is at the heart of your Necromunda: Underhive Wars experience. It is the system that continuously monitors and tracks the completion of Infamy Tasks, in order to award their associated (and most useful) Infamy Points.
In some instances (especially in older saves), it is possible for corrupted data to have been introduced over time within the Commander Profile, and to interfere with the normal game flow. If this is your case, you may have noticed some Infamy Tasks failing to register as complete (even though their achievement conditions have been met), or that some of the associated Infamy Points have not been granted as they should’ve been.
If this is your case, you might want to recalculate your Infamy Points (but do so only if needed - please read on).
How does it work?
The new optional tool will first delete, then entirely rebuild a player’s Commander Profile, which contains a list of all completed Infamy Tasks and their associated Infamy Points.
In doing so, the tool will repair any existing profile corruption and attempt to reallocate previously gained Infamy Points. Gang saves themselves will be unaffected.
DISCLAIMER - Limits of the repair tool
Because of how the system tracks progression, some Infamy Tasks cannot be recovered, and have to be reinitialized entirely.
These will be reset to their default values (as if the title was booted for the very first time), and it will be possible to reobtain their associated Infamy Points by playing the game and meeting their unlock conditions once more.
In other words, don’t use this tool unless you have to. It’s normal for spent Infamy Points to be momentarily unavailable if you have previously forfeited an Operation - these will be returned to you when you next complete a new Operation. You should not use the repair tool to try and circumvent this system, unless you’re ready to re-unlock some Infamy Tasks from scratch.
How to use the Commander Profile Repair tool?
Launching the tool is really easy:
- Launch the game
- From the Main Menu, head over to Options
- Navigate to the Gameplay Options. You’ll find the button at the bottom of the tab.
- That’s it! Once the operation is complete, you’ll be returned to the Main Menu.
This concludes today’s small hotfix update - we hope this new tool will be useful to those of you who might have experienced issues with the tracking of Infamy Tasks and Points in the past.
As always, we would like to take a moment and express our gratitude to all community members for your time, patience and continued support - we truly appreciate your most valuable participation and feedback, and we’ll be back soon with more Necromunda news!
Until next time, stay safe everyone, and we’ll see you in the underhive!
