Important Info

Known Issues

  • A rare issue may occur where rope positions are moved back to origin point (0,0,0) on level Save/Export. We advise to check your level after Save/Export. If in the event your ropes have moved you have the option to restore from a backup (.bak) file or reposition the ropes.
  • Restoring from CryDesigner's "Exclusive Mode" may not restore TOD settings correctly.

New Feature
