Overwatch Patch Notes



  • Added the ability for scripters to measure the server performance of the current game instance.
    • Three new values make this possible:
      • Server Load – Provides a percentage representing the CPU load of the current game instance.
      • Server Load Average – Provides a percentage representing the average CPU load of the current game instance over the last two seconds.
      • Server Load Peak – Provides a percentage representing the highest CPU load of the current game instance over the last two seconds.
    • As these numbers approach or exceed 100, it becomes increasingly likely that the game instance will be shut down because it is consuming too many resources.
    • A new preset example displays these values as HUD text in the upper-left corner of the screen. The rule in the preset can be copied into other scripts to help identify performance problem areas.
  • When a game instance shuts down due to excessive Workshop script load, a new error message is displayed in the chat window (instead of the “unexpected error” message).
  • Additional strings added.
