Tetris Effect: Connected Patch 1.2.8 (01/19/22)

——–PATCH NOTES V1.2.8 ——–

[ALL] Extended the timing window of button/key presses required to successfully help REVIVE fallen players in CONNECTED and CONNECTED VS.

[PC] Added SteamVR support for Quest headsets. (Note: the Y button of the Touch Controller is assigned to pause the game by default.)

[PC] Fixed an issue that caused colors to look incorrect in certain cases when HDR was enabled.  Also fixed an issue where the game switched from BORDERLESS/WINDOWED to FULL SCREEN when entering MULTIPLAYER when HDR was enabled. (Note: DISPLAY MODE will now automatically switch to FULL SCREEN when HDR is enabled in the Options. HDR will be disabled if the display mode is changed to BORDERLESS/WINDOWED.)  

[ALL] Temporarily removed OVERALL SR decay. Your OVERALL SR will no longer decrease after extended periods of inactivity. We are working on an alternate system for encouraging players to not “sit on” high scores or records for a future update.

[STEAM, EPIC] Added local backups of saved game data. (The backup data will remain even if the game is uninstalled.)

Backup data on Steam: \AppData\Local\TetrisEffectConnected\Steam\<UserId>\Backup_Game.sav

Backup data on Epic:  \AppData\Local\TetrisEffectConnected\EpicGames\Backup_Game.sav

[QUEST] Fixed an issue where offline mode was not working correctly.

Other minor adjustments and bug fixes.


KNOWN IN-GAME ISSUES (not a comprehensive list):


[PS4/PS5, XB1/XSX] Leaving the game in the multiplayer menu when suspending/putting your system into sleep or rest mode can (if or when your network connection is interrupted at any point) return a network error when trying to access Rankings or matchmaking in Ranked Matches. Please restart the game to fix this.


[SWITCH] Changing the Nintendo Switch system clock to a future time and posting scores in online multiplayer and then resetting it back could prevent your scores from updating in online multiplayer. Please do not change the system clock when playing online multiplayer. 

[QUEST] Oculus Quest has implemented a new cloud backup system that is currently only available to users with OS version V35 or later.  Please note that this cloud backup is a different system from the previous cloud save and backup occurs only once a day on a set timing. Since this is still in the test phase, there is a risk that your progress may be lost when uninstalling if the data is not backed up correctly. Please continue to refrain from uninstalling the software for now.  

[WIN10] A cloud save dialogue window can appear “under” the game when launching on some PC configurations, effectively stopping the game from starting. If you experience this issue, please go to Startup > Right-click on Tetris Effect Connected > More > Run As Administrator, and the cloud save dialog window should appear on top of the game.

[WIN10] If you have more than one Windows user signed in, your Xbox account may not be recognized in the game. A workaround is to sign out all other signed-in users so that your Xbox account will be recognized in the game.
