leads to a 404.

Good catch! Should be fixed now. The releases notes is under going a major restructure and a few months back the fund page was merged into the download page. Next month or so the link should be fixed (it’s already fixed in the test build I link below). I’m currently finishing up the final touches for the next website release which will contain a new features page as well as restructured notes, new home page and restructured community page among other UI changes.

Hello RPaladin,
thank you for the new build.
I’m not doing anything with Armory at the moment, but it’s nice that it’s still being maintained.

Is the live patch broken?

In the new build (ArmorySDK-2022-8) I always get this error message with the live patch activated.

Hi. There are currently three issues open relating to the live streaming feature.

If any of these opened issues have similar causes (of crashes), I’d suggest posting there so that the issue can hopefully get fixed faster. Otherwise, if they’re not already listed, please open a new report instead.

Many thanks for your answer!
I have open a new report.

Armory gives really satisfactory visuals . Nice lighting and shadows. Just annoying it can randomly crashes.
