Patch 1.55 hotfix released
« on: 08 September, 2012, 07:24:48 AM »

Hey everybody! We come less than 24 hours after the 1.5 release with a quick hotfix to resolve a nasty bug we found. If this bug does not affect you, you do not need this patch. Read on!

Some of you may have noticed that when doing Lets Plays with a microphone, your voice will be played back to yourself at random intervals when you jump. This was an oversight on my part on a new entity I was working on. If you're encountering this problem when playing the game, download this patch. If you're never talking into your microphone when playing, you can safely ignore this patch. To download the patch, simply launch your Cof Launch app and click "Check for updates".
