See the EP Beta FAQ for general information about EP Beta and details on how to participate.

EP 4.2.1.0 is now released live, nothing new is available to test at this time.
Additionally, support of 4.2.x version line has ended.





EP 4.2.1.0 Introduction

This update is primarily meant to lay the groundwork for easier development of future updates and to improve the updating process for users. 4.2.1.0 is aimed to be the final update released on the "Production 2" Release Channel, which has been in use since EP2. Further updates are to be released on new channel "Stable". A short FAQ on what does this mean:

What will be the effects of changing the Release Channel?
At least EP 4.2.1.0 will be required to receive further automatic updates, which means a currently outdated version might need a two-step update to get on the latest version. For example, a user launching old EP3 will first be prompted to download & install 4.2.1.0, after which the user will be prompted once again to download whichever the current version is. If you keep your EP up to date, you will not notice any difference.

So, do I need to do something special to get this update or continue getting automatic updates?
No, the process remains automatic. EP 4.2.1.0 will simply start using the new default channel on its own.

Why is this happening?
In order to change the compression algorithm of released updates, we must force older EP installations to first update to such a version that supports decompressing given algorithm. Otherwise, an attempted automatic update from a version older than 4.2.1.0 directly to a version newer than 4.2.1.0 would fail to decompress the update files, leaving the user with no choice but to download and install the latest version manually.

Is there anything to test here?
Yes! Please see if the Beta update installs properly for you, verify that EP still works and that you can get back on the stable version safe and sound. A seamless switch of the release channel is something that has never been done before, and it will only be seamless if we test it properly before the public release.

EP 4.2.1.0 Beta1 [2018-04-28]
changelog since EP 4.2.0.0

All ESOC custom patches
- Removed http://eso.com status check from ESO login process, thus allowing players to log onto ESO while http://eso.com is down.

Launcher
- Added support for decompressing updates in LZMA/7zip format, allowing for a significantly reduced download size of future updates (-64%).
- Default Release Channel switched from "Production 2" to newly created "Stable".
- Remove HIGHDPIAWARE compatibility flag from all custom executables, as it seems to cause lag for some players.
- Release Channel should now persist upon downloading an update from a different channel than the default. This prevents the confusing message offering a "downgrade" immediately when switching to Beta channel.

Internal
- EP build process vastly simplified and made more efficient.

EP 4.2.0.0 Beta1 [2017-12-29]
changelog since EP 4.1.0.0

ESOC Standard Supremacy Patch
- EP: Fixed a bug that caused Iroquois War Hut Big Button tech Lacrosse to not increase the range of Tomahawks.
- EP: Fixed a bug that caused Mountain Warrior card to not double the amount of resources gained from treasures.
- EP: Caravel, Galleon, Galley default attack range reverted to the correct value 20 (from 18).

Launcher
- Upon opening the EP Launcher, compatibility flags of all custom game exes are now automatically configured. For some users, this should solve performance issues, settings bugs, and the occasional "Application Not Responding" alerts. The default configuration will be set to WINXPSP3 DISABLETHEMES DISABLEDWM HIGHDPIAWARE RUNASADMIN, however, a different OS compatibility flag will be respected and not reconfigured to Win XP automatically. Additional flags will also be respected and not removed.
- The auto-update process will now automatically copy all ESOC and Blitz maps for use on the official RE patch as custom maps (this will only work when updating from EP 4.2.x onwards).
- Improved detection of when the game is already running and cannot be currently launched, also improved some error messaging.

Anti-cheat
- Various anti-cheat improvements, fixed a security issue that would allow players to send free shipments (http://eso-community.net/viewtopic.php?f=399&t=13032&p=274273).
- "Zoom mod" is now detected as a cheat (except from within the Observer UI).

Installer
The installer cannot be tested the standard way on the Beta channel, since it is used only for new installations. For testing purposes, it can be downloaded manually from here, but I would recommend reinstalling the stable version of EP afterwards.
- The exe installer setup now automatically attempts to activate DirectPlay, which is a legacy component required for any version of AoE3 to run, but disabled by default on most systems with OS Windows 8 or newer.
- The installation process will now automatically copy all ESOC and Blitz maps for use on the official RE patch as custom maps.
