King of Fighters XIII new patch out now on PSN
Should improve your multiplayer sessions; Xbox 360 update follows soon.
A patch for the PlayStation 3 version of Atlus’ beat ‘em up King of Fighters XIII is now available for download, with the Xbox 360 update promised to release at a later date.
The new patch adds an advanced filtering system, which accordingly should bring “dramatic improvements” to your online matchmakings. Of course, you should expect some general tweaks and bug fixes. In the meantime, you can get a grasp at the details crammed in the new update below.
-Ranked Match Filtering: One of the most requested additions, players may now set conditions for their opponent’s connection. When a player who doesn’t meet the standby conditions tries to enter the Ranked match, a warning message will be displayed and the match cancelled.
-Improved Filtering: Filtering functionality in general has seen dramatic improvements. Previously, certain connection data was not filtered sufficiently and the player had a chance of connecting to opponents with poor connection quality. Now, more aggressive filtering should ensure that players are only matched with opponents who meet their filter settings.
-Improved Connection Antenna: The computation behind the players’ connection antenna, the meter indicating the quality of a player’s connection, has been improved, resulting in a more accurate and consistent measurement.
-Temporarily Saved Custom Match Settings: Players may continue searching for opponents with the same settings as long as the player remains in the PLAYER MATCH/RANKED MATCH menu.
-Character-specific Bug Fixes: “NESTS-Style” Kyo and Iori with the Power of Flames no longer become unresponsive under certain circumstances.
-Additional refinements, fixes, and more.
