Serious Sam 4 Patch Notes v1.04 (October 9, 2020)

What’s new

By popular demand, and totally not because we messed up, the game will now save your inventory in your profile upon finishing a level. This means you can now continue your playthrough without losing all your stuff. Keep in mind that using cheats will prevent the inventory from saving.

  • The “show weapon wheel” and “select last weapon” functions can now be bound to the same button, with the weapon wheel being shown upon holding the button.
  • The vast emptiness of the France level has been filled up. Find the filling, and kill it. Let us know how you did.
  • You can now press the weapon wheel button shortly to switch to your last weapon. Holding it will still show the weapon wheel.
  • You can now customize your game difficulty by adjusting the enemy multiplier.

Stability and performance

  • Fixed an issue where the game would sometimes crash during longer Netricsa browsing sessions.
  • Fixed a rare issue where some supported GPUs would be marked as unsupported by mistake.
  • Various smaller performance and stability tweaks and fixes across GPU APIs.

Gameplay fixes and changes

  • Fixed an issue where specific Netricsa messages would not show up when intended.
  • Pyro now has fire coming out of his flamethrower. He sent his original one for replacing. It was obviously broken.
  • Piercing weapons will now actually pierce enemies when you shoot them from close range, and not fly out randomly.
  • We have bought a new Grenade launcher for Sam. This new model can shoot continuously if you keep the LMB pressed.
  • Enemies will no longer start to moonwalk after you shoot them from close range. They will die as all things should.
  • Do you remember how big enemies outside of the black hole don’t explode when killed? Well, they do now.
  • You can now use your finishing moves on Harpies as well.

Visual fixes and changes

  • The default color settings have been tweaked to liven things up. If you wish to adjust them further, please use the Color Options menu.
  • Sam’s sprinting animation will no longer be activated randomly with the Born to Run skill unlocked.
  • The Volcano on Gates of Hell finally erupted. It has particles and all.
  • The ol’ Tractor now has a moving wheel. It’s crazy, I know.
  • Various tweaks of the third person melee attacks.
  • The laser now has a slightly improved secondary fire animation.
  • Fixed issues with some Processed, Gnaar, and Beheaded melee finishing animations.
  • Pyro will no longer do the Vogue T-Pose in the air when damaged. We don’t like dancers.

Other changes

  • Asian languages now have proper word wrapping.
  • Various localization fixes for all languages. This is still work in progress, so you are more than welcome to report remaining issues with subtitles and/or menu strings.

Gameplay fixes and changes

The Zealot will no longer be catapulted into oblivion when killed by a double-barreled shotgun or a rocket launcher. It was fun while it lasted. The Chainsaw Launcher alt-fire will now gib enemies as intended.

The player will now spawn in the Popemobile after loading an autosave during the Megalopolyp boss fight. Fixed an issue where the players would sometimes get stuck near the first gated area in Viva La Resistance.

Fixed an issue where the players would be unable to remove a weapon from their hands while riding a Khnum. Fixed an issue where some secrets would not be marked as such when the player discovered them.

Vehicles will no longer be able to kill enemies without any momentum. L.I.F.E gadget will no longer reset armor to 100 to players who have more than 100 armor at the time of activation. Fixed an issue with the cutscene starting abruptly upon finishing the Viva la Resistance square fight.

The mech “low battery” warning will no longer show for all players on the server, even if they are not in a mech. Players will now select the last used weapon after using a gadget, instead of always autoselecting rifle.

Visual fixes and changes

  • Fixed an issue where Blue Biomech wouldn’t gib on any blood setting but the default one.
  • Fixed an issue where the Time Warp effect would be visible during cutscenes.
  • Vehicle steering wheels and speedometers will now behave correctly in all situations.

The first-person sprint weapon animation will no longer play while riding enemies from the first-person perspective. The Tommy Gun weapon skin will now get bloody! Because we all love blood, amirite.
