We’ve just released patch 188.8.131.5220 which reverts the web browser we use to power our remastered UI to the previous version. This should fix the performance degradation and blank UI panels occurring for a small portion of players. Please note that in future we will need to upgrade this again, for compliance reasons. We’ll be reaching out to some of those affected to see if we can test with them privately before we attempt this again, assuming we are not able to reproduce the issue internally.
As always, thanks for your patience and support!
RT @DarkHorseDirect: Yes, Commander? We are excited to announce that the StarCraft Terran Battlecruiser Ship now glows-in-the-dark! Weapons…
Glad to hear some of the problems were resolved with yesterday’s patch.
To reiterate what Matt wrote yesterday, if you are experiencing unresponsive or blank UI in the game menus (e.g. chat screen, game search screen), please contact us:
We have not been able to reproduce this issue internally yet, so (long term at least) the only way we’ll be able to improve the situation for those impacted players is if you reach out to us.
So far, very few people have contacted us about this issue, which may mean it’s impacting a very small number of players.
Even if we were to rollback our browser library, we must at some point in the near future upgrade this for security compliance reasons. So a rollback is only kicking the can down the road.
We may take this option - but even if we do, we’ll still need community help to identify the PC configurations that are causing the issue.
Thank you so much to all of those of have reached out with quality feedback and data! It is very much appreciated.
