Latest Home Update?

15 Replies 630 Views Created 20-04-2011
I entered home at about 8.45am this morning and everything was working fine, and then at 9am on the dot i got disconnected. I tried to load home again but it kept stopping at the black screen with the home logo with a message saying that i need the latest update to use home. I had the latest update up until 9am. Is there going to be an update today? Usually when there's an update it does it automatically when home is loading. Any ideas?

That didn't really help as it just takes you to a sign in page...

Lum, apparently version 1.5 is coming today. Not that you would know though with the zero official information we've had about it around these parts.

Re: Latest Home Update?

Usually when home is offline for maintenance there's a message on the loading screen saying that home is undergoing maintenance but this time it said that i needed the latest update thats why i thought something wasn't working correctly. I've since seen the posts about 1.5 on the home gd boards.

Re: Latest Home Update?

Thanks for that Retro :smileyhappy:. i wasn't going to sign in on that link that was posted by #2. I knew that 1.5 was earmarked for around this time but a headsup from a mod before home was taken offline would have been appreciated.

Home v.1.5 Patch Notes

Application of the patch

If you are upgrading from any version of Home other than the latest one (1.41) then when you attempt to apply the 1.5 patch please wait for the orange “hard drive activity” light to stop flashing on your PS3 before commencing the patching process.

New features

Wardrobe
  • We have increased the number of wardrobe save slots to 24.
  • There is a new facial structure under “Character -> Structure” in the wardrobe.
    • We have added a download progress bar and speed indicator to the Navigator when downloading a space.
    • There have been various graphical tweaks to the Navigator.
    • We have added a new option to let you more easily manage furniture that has been placed in your Personal Space or Clubhouse.
    • When you are in one of those spaces you can access the new management screen from the Menu Pad under “Personal -> Redecorate -> Furniture”.
    • The screen lists thumbnail images and names of all of the items of furniture currently placed in the space. You can alter what is displayed on this list:
Navigator

Furniture management

o By pressing [L1] and limiting it to only one category of furniture (for example just “Actives”, “Seating” or “Lighting”).

o By pressing [R1] and changing the order in which the list is sorted (for example by “Recently placed” or “Closest” to your character).
  • The list changes dynamically so if you choose to order it by furniture that is “Closest” to your character it will update as you move around the space.
  • The currently selected furniture item is highlighted with a blue box around it.
  • If you hover over an item on the list your camera will turn to face it.
  • You can temporarily fade out most of the interface by pressing and holding [L2] to get a better view of the space. The effect is analogue so the more you press the button the more the interface will fade.
  • Pressing [CROSS] with an item selected will take you to the standard furniture movement menu for that item.
  • It is possible to “tag” one or more furniture items on the list for removal by selecting it and pressing [TRIANGLE].
o Items tagged like this have a grey border around them.

o You can un-tag an item by pressing [TRIANGLE] on it again.
  • When you exit the management menu any items tagged for removal will be removed from the space.
o You are still given the option to confirm the mass removal once it has been applied or undo it.

Chat log
  • We have added a new symbol for slash commands “@”. So “/Local” and “@Local” will both do the same thing.
  • You can quickly access the channel switching option menu by pressing d-pad [LEFT] on the text tab or d-pad [RIGHT] on the voice tab.
  • There is a new option to find another user in your space. You can access it by highlighting a line of text in the chat log, pressing [CROSS] and choosing “Locate”. This will make their name label flash until you get near to them.
  • There are several new customisation options for the chat log. These can be found in the Menu Pad under “Settings -> Personal -> Chat Log”:
o There is a new chat log text size “small” for people with large, HD TVs.
o You can adjust the channel prefix attached to each line of text.
o You can add a time stamp to each line of text.
o For each channel you can change:
§ Whether text from this channel is visible in the chat log.
§ How the pop-up colour of other users is displayed.

§ Whether chat bubbles are displayed.
  • When you attempt to enter text from the VKB or a USB keyboard the chat log will automatically switch to the text tab.
  • If the chat log is minimised it will automatically open when you receive a Private Message.
  • There is a new “None” option for voice channels which will take you out of voice communication.
  • We have added some more keyboard controls so that when maximised the chat log can be controlled with the arrow keys, Enter and Escape.
  • We have reduced the stuttering (sometimes interpreted as “lag”) that could occur when you receive a reward.
  • The loading of high “level of detail” characters has been improved.
  • There is a new “game” icon to indicate when you have a game targeted before you interact with it.
General


Wardrobe
  • We have added 13 new character presets to the wardrobe under “Presets”.

HomeStation Presents: The Upload, Episode #7

UploadLogo

Outso is on a roll right now!

Let’s start from the top.

  • SodiumOne. The best game in all of Home. Any questions?
  • The fashions. The hairstyles. The accessories. Yes.
  • All sorts of behind-the-scenes stuff that you’re not even aware of (unless you read our second issue’s cover story, which you did).
  • The early rumblings of epic win from SodiumTwo, still heavily under wraps. This game will mash your brains into sushi.
  • The redesigned Sodium Hub!
  • And now…a Sodium-themed personal estate for Home.

Thus, it is with great pleasure that HomeStation Magazine presents a very special episode of The Upload, dedicated entirely to Outso. And, to make it even cooler, we were able to interview Alex Loffstadt, Outso’s Community Manager!

Want the scoop on Blaster’s Paradise? Want to know what’s up with SodiumTwo? Want to find out all sorts of cool stuff? Then press play and enjoy the ride!

Re: Latest Home Update?

I think that no one knows anything at the moment, least of all, Sony.

However, follow the speculation here.
