Report article RSS Feed GoldenEye: X Patch 5a Released!

The fifth release of GoldenEye: X has been made public. You can check out a trailer for the mod in this article, and also find a link to where you can download the patch for yourself.

Posted by Wreckd on Sep 22nd, 2012

Over a year has passed since the last public release of GoldenEye: X. Now, we proudly bring to you, the newest installment; Patch 5a. Since 4a, we've been working hard to improve the overall quality of the mod, as well as including new materials. Weapons were a primary focus this time around. Many more are now available, they're in the correct order, and previous firearms are using their proper firing rates and muzzle flashes. Menu colours are also new. Instead of the blue that you've been used to seeing, you're treated to a much nicer green colour. Simulants have become even more intelligent this time around. They now know the best ways to utilize their weapons, at which distances to keep from their opponents, when to go get more ammunition, how long it takes to reload, and what firearms are more deadly than others. If you thought they were tough before, get ready for a real challenge. And speaking of challenges, the 30 Assignments are all setup. You'll experience a wide range of scenarios, face off against Simulants of increasing difficulties, and play all the classic GoldenEye maps in brand new ways. As a special treat, bringing one of the most treasured beta aspects back to life, All Bonds are playable in VR mode. Your favourite 007 actors from the historic franchise are just waiting to get back into the thick of things. There have been so many little tweaks and updates, that naming them all here would take too long. For more information on those, please check out the list below. Once again, we deeply appreciate the support of those who have been anxiously awaiting a new release. Thank you for sticking by us, and for taking the time to play this mod.

You can download the patch either here at Mod DB, or at the GoldenEye Vault website
(www.goldeneyevault.com).  If you are unsure how to patch your Perfect
Dark v1.1 NTSC ROM, please refer to the FAQ section of the same website.

Elevator songs 1 and 2 have been brought in as a replacement for the other two.


Known Bugs / Glitches...

Eyelid Doors in Caverns:
There's a few issues with these.  Simulants have trouble opening them, and often run in place in front of them.  Also, if you crouch down, it's possible to actually walk right through the lower door.  We're trying to figure this out, but weren't able to in time for release 4a.

Simulants:
Since the first release, every map has been fitted with an AI Path Network.  This means that Simulants can freely roam the stages.  Also, extensions and drops have been worked into most levels, improving Sim navigation.  They are also much smarter when it comes to weapon choice and utlization.

Martin Hollis, 008 Simulant Partner:
Currently has female voice files during missions.  These will need to be replaced with male samples.

Headers/Dividers:
Because we wanted to have everything (or mostly everything) unlocked from the start of the game for new users, some of the menu headers and dividers may be missing.  They rely on certain flags to be set in order to be shown.  It should be fixed everywhere, but don't be surprised if something seems off.

Hangar Information PC:
The computer stationed in the Carrington Institute hangar will often crash the game.  If you attempt to preview any of the files stored on the PC, the gameplay may freeze and you'll be forced to restart.  We're not sure why this happens at this time, so you'll just have to avoid it for now.
