Happy Wednesday Grunts,

These are the notes for Hotfix 1.5.4 for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. Thanks again for everyone who has downloaded the game. We’re happy to say that you’ve been breaking records for player numbers over the last couple of weeks!

This Hotfix took a little longer, courtesy of the QA required around some of the performance issues, as these were related to how player stats were being handled on EGS. Players should now see far less hitching when players join servers, for example, as well as other performance improvements.

We also have the SDK working for the mappers/modders out there, as well as the first round of some QoL fixing to the whitelisting system. The missing Green Army Men maps are back where they should be and a number of other issues (see the Changelog for details) have been addressed. And some fixes for Vivox VoiP issues.

From here, we will review any outstanding issues from the EGS implementation, including lingering VoiP issues and move on to some further Quality of Life issues. All of us at Tripwire (and Saber) thank you for your continued support and patience. We hope to see you in the ‘Nam!
