Technical Notes

  • The console netcode is based on EOS (Epic Online Services) to allow for crossplay. But, due to a bug with EOS P2P packet sending, players may find more connection quality issues than the PC version. At least when playing Them’s Fightin’ Herds on or with consoles. The issue lies on the Epic side of the equation, but the dev’s will continue to monitor feedback. And work with them to work it out.
  • However, Steam users playing with other Steam users will automatically use the original Steam netcode. Since this offers the same connection quality players expect prior to this update.
  • Note: All platforms continue to use the TFH implementation of GGPO for rollback netcode. So online fights should still feel as responsive as they did before.
