Patch notes

1.17.0 - 2/10/2021

Contains: 617, 618, 619 and 620

Changes and fixes

    Fixed directx12 hooking not working when overlays were present.
    Fixed symlink deployment with Vortex.
    Drop second implementation of Scripting::ToRED() which was very outdated. This was limiting what overridden functions can return.
    Fix gamedataTDBIDHelper helper that behaves the same as gamedataTweakDBInterface.
    Sanitize type names to be a valid Lua identifier. This makes namespaced types added by redscript accessible in Lua.
    Force garbage collection for overridden functions of inkGameController and it's descendants. In some cases, there seem to be issues with unreleased instances of inkGameController leading to crashes. This was introduced when we started to properly wrap the context in Handle<>.
    Changed the behavior of observers so that all observers will be called even if an override is defined.
Observe('PlayerPuppet', 'IsPlayer', function() print('Observer 1') end)
Override('PlayerPuppet', 'IsPlayer', function() print('Override 1') end)
Override('PlayerPuppet', 'IsPlayer', function() print('Override 2') end)
Observe('PlayerPuppet', 'IsPlayer', function() print('Observer 2') end)
Will output
Observer 1
Observer 2
Override 1


    Stricter check of the passed context when calling the RTTI function. Prevents unwanted crashes when invalid value passed as self / this. In particular, it prevents crashes when a dot is accidentally used instead of a colon.
    Support for ISerializable strong and weak references. This opens access to some new classes, but not all of them.
    Function to add new CNames to the pool
print(CName("CET").value) -- Empty string
print(CName("CET").value) -- CET
    Workaround for parameterized struct constructor. Previously, fields of a reference type could be corrupted right after construction.
    Support of nulls for strong and weak references.
Assignment example:
-- Set reference to null
self.resetConfirmationToken = nil
Parameter example:
-- Omit optional task data
Game.GetDelaySystem():QueueTask(this, nil, "ResolveGameplayStateTask", gameScriptTaskExecutionStage.PostPhysics)
    IsDefined helper function as in redscript. Checks if reference is not null and valid. Can be used on game object's field and lua variable.
    EnumInt helper function as in redscript.
print(EnumInt(GameplayTier.Tier2_StagedGameplay)) -- 2ULL
    Support for CRUID type.
local dialogLine =
2 = CRUID(12345)
    Support for gamedataLocKeyWrapper type.
TweakDB:SetFlat("Items.Preset_Overture_Kerry.displayName", LocKey(40475))

if reason.value == 'consoleCommand' then
registerHotkey('TestError', 'TestError', function()
Game.GetTimeSystem():SetTimeDilation('consoleCommand', 0.25, 1.0, 'Linear')
Will print the full callstack in the log:
[error] ...x64\plugins\cyber_engine_tweaks\mods\test-error\init.lua:4: Function 'FloorF' parameter 1 must be Float.
stack traceback:
[C]: in function 'FloorF'
...x64\plugins\cyber_engine_tweaks\mods\test-error\init.lua:4: in function <...x64\plugins\cyber_engine_tweaks\mods\test-error\init.lua:2>
[C]: in function 'SetTimeDilation'

Contains: 568, 572, 573, 574, 575, 577, 578 and 579

Script API

    Whitelisted collectgarbage to let scripts force release game references.
    Added exEntitySpawner to spawn entities easily
spawnPosition = Game.GetPlayer():GetWorldTransform()
-- [Simple]
-- Spawn 'Character.Judy' just like prevention system
-- Optionally set appearance to 'judy_diving_suit'
judyEntityID = exEntitySpawner.SpawnRecord('Character.Judy', spawnPosition)
judyEntityID = exEntitySpawner.SpawnRecord('Character.Judy', spawnPosition, 'judy_diving_suit')
-- [Advanced]
-- Spawn base\quest\secondary_characters\judy.ent
-- Optionally set appearance to 'default'
-- Optionally set TweakDB record to 'Character.Judy' (VO/Name/Equipment/etc)
judyEntityID = exEntitySpawner.Spawn([[base\quest\secondary_characters\judy.ent]], spawnPosition)
judyEntityID = exEntitySpawner.Spawn([[base\quest\secondary_characters\judy.ent]], spawnPosition, 'default')
judyEntityID = exEntitySpawner.Spawn([[base\quest\secondary_characters\judy.ent]], spawnPosition, 'default', 'Character.Judy')
-- Some time later...
-- entities are not spawned instantly, FindEntityByID may return nil
judy = Game.FindEntityByID(judyEntityID)

Changes and fixes

    Fixed a crash that would occur on machines without ASLR enabled by enabling LuaJIT's GC64 option.
    Fixed nested RTTI calls that would crash the game due to memory release of the previous call's memory.
    Fix the disable anti AA and async compute patches.
    Fix for TweakDB default values.
    Fix tooltips that contained C format characters and would crash the game.
    Improved update hook.
    xmake install will now install in the game's directory to make it easier for those installing from source.

1.14.0 - 17/06/2021

Contains: 551, 552, 553, 557, 558, 559

Script API

    All game classes are directly accessible by name. For example, entEntityId, PlayerPuppet.
    All game enums are directly accessible by name. For example, gamedataStatType.BaseDamage, gameGameVersion.Current.
    Classes can also be accessed by their aliases from redscript. For example, WeaponObject instead of gameweaponObject.
    Classes have the conventional .new() constructor. For example,
    A constructor can take an array of properties to create and initialize an object in a single statement. For example,{ hash = 12345 }).
    Static methods are accessible from classes using the dot. For example, ScriptedPuppet.IsDefeated(npc).
    A static method can be called from an instance if the first parameter is of the same type. For example, vec4:Length() instead of Vector4.Length(vec4).
    The overloaded function is resolved based on passed parameters when called by its short name. For example, StatusEffectHelper.HasStatusEffect(target, gamedataStatusEffectType.Overheat).
    Partial Variant type support. ToVariant() and FromVariant() are only applicable to classes.
    Observe() and Override() now accept both native and scripted type names.
    Added Game.GetSystemRequestsHandler() as an alternative to GetSingleton("inkMenuScenario"):GetSystemRequestsHandler().
    Added TweakDB:SetFlats
TweakDB:SetFlats('Character.Judy', {
level = 99,
tags = { 'Immortal' }
    Added WorldFunctionalTests
transform = Game.GetPlayer():GetWorldTransform()
entityID = WorldFunctionalTests.SpawnEntity('base\\quest\\secondary_characters\\judy.ent', transform, '')
entity = Game.FindEntityByID(entityID)
    Added Imgui.GetStyle()
    Added support for ResourceAsyncReference. Allows editing of TweakDB props of that type by the mods.

Changes and fixes

    Fixed disappearing footsteps issue.
      The issue still can occur if the mods do not properly release the player reference.
    The GetMod() is only available after onInit as there is no guarantee that the required mod will be loaded before this event.
    Types and functions that rely on RTTI are only available after onInit event to prevent some unwanted crashes and unexpected behavior.
    Improved detection of whether the game is running. Prevents more crashes when exiting the game.
    Implemented optional parameters support. Prevents some unexpected crashes.
    Fixed DumpType("Type") returning empty result.
    Fixed crash when accessing properties of invalid Enum, eg.'', '').value.
    Fixed crash when setting an incompatible value for an object property.
    Fixed crash when calling function with out parameters of Enum, CName or TweakDBID type.
    Fixed memory leaks when passing strong or weak references to the function.
    Fixed memory leaks when invalid parameters passed to the function.
    Fixed memory leaks for function results and out parameters of certain types.
    Fixed memory leaks when creating new objects.
    Fixed memory leaks when setting object properties.
    Fixed memory leak for arrays with elements of certain types passed as an argument.
    Fixed a crash when passing an incompatible array as an argument. For example, an array of numbers instead of an array of handles.
    Fixed memory leak when passing an object instead of an array as an argument. This resulted in a silent crash without calling ResetAllocator.
    Fixed inconsistent self and random crashes in Observe and Override.
    Reverted Override() to the previous behavior so when the handler fails, the original game function is not called.
    Added implicit conversion from Int64/UInt64 to other arithmetic types.
    Added type safety checks for Int64/UInt64.
    Added recursive freeing of arrays.
    Added logging for errors occurred in the module loaded with require(). Should make the transition to the new version less painful.


    Global fallback table is used now for all mod environments. No need to whitelist what's defined there.
    Aliases like Game['GetPlayer'] = Game['GetPlayer;GameInstance'] aren't needed in autoexec.lua. All global and class functions are automatically resolved by short name now.
    Added implicit class to strong reference conversion.
    Updated RED4ext to latest version.
      This fixes the error when trying to use a CName that is None


    Patch for the Minimap flicker

1.13.0 - 28/04/2021

    Crash when using TweakDB:Update in an Observe/Override callback
    Direct3d12 command queue could be null sometimes
    Error logging from Observe/Override callbacks
    Redundant Lua environment passing
    64bits numbers are now correctly interpreted as numbers by Lua
    Strings can now be implicitly cast to a TweakDBID when the scripting framework expects a TweakDBID

1.12.2 - 14/04/2021

Support for patch 1.21
    Lua scripting errors with functions returning some values with out params
    GameOptions.Toggle() now works

    SQLite3 database not closing on mod reload
    Equality comparison to some types (Vector3, Enum, TweakDBID,...)
    Concatenation for TweakDBID

    Modal popups for unsaved changes into Bindings and Settings widget
    Modal popup on first launch asking user explicitly to bind some hotkey for toggling Overlay
    Option to enable removing of dead binds (default is on)
    Option to enable ImGui assertions to make sure mods are not breaking something (default is off)
    Option to toggle ImGui Diagnostic window (default is off, this option is not preserved after restart!)
    Nicer formatting of headings inside Bindings widget (replace characters that are not alphanumeric by space and autocapitalize each word)
    Reworked Settings menu (options are now split into two categories - Patches and Dev)
    Reworked Bindings menu (separated hotkeys and inputs into two categories)
    onDraw is not called for mods while CET modal dialog is active (including first launch)
    First time launch (it should now be more streamlined)
    Decoupled config.json from bindings.json (overlay key is now located only inside bindings.json and is left out of config.json)
    Overlay key was moved to Bindings menu
    Updated TiltedCore to 0.2.2

1.12.0 - 29/03/2021

Added support for patch 1.2.
    os.remove and os.rename were not working properly.
    The debug menu patch would not show the menus.
    Fixed dofile, loadfile and loadstring.
    Lua environment would not be applied correctly to some callbacks.
    Lua to RED engine converter now works correctly with nil values and double.
    Security issue where scripts could override another script's functions, calling another script is now read only.
    Key bindings were improved.
      Support for scroll wheel.
      registerInput for single inputs. This handler is similar to registerHotkey, but function now takes one boolean argument denoting if input was pressed/released.
      IsBound and GetBind added to check if action is bound and retrieve string representation of it.
    TweakDB experienced many changes:
      All TweakDB functions can now be called with strings instead of TweakDBID. TweakDBID is still accepted.
      TweakDB:SetFlat now updates records if it already exists (see SetFlatNoUpdate)
      Performance improved.
    Lua version changed to 5.1 this can break your mod if you were using post 5.1 language features such as bit operators. This change was done to fix environment issues, we also got a performance boost by switching to LuaJIT instead of the default Lua implementation.
    Updated Imgui to version 1.82.
    Updated spdlog to version 1.8.5.
    Updated sqlite3 to version 3.35.0.
    Re-added the SMT patch for AMD CPUs that did not get a performance boost after CDPR's patch.
    Added Lua's bit32 library.
    TweakDB additions:
      CloneRecord, CreateRecord and DeleteRecord.
      GetRecords, obtain a list of records associated with a type.
      SetFlatNoUpdate, faster way to set without checking if there is an old record to update. Requires call to TweakDB:Update afterwards to apply changes!
      TweakDB editor in the UI.
      Supports loading archivehashes.txt.
      Can now search through record flats.

1.11.4 - 18/02/2021

    Fix memory allocation errors due to missing argument.
    Fix Observe/Override sometimes affecting scripts when they shouldn't.

1.11.3 - 17/02/2021

    Fix crash when using multiple mods.

1.11.2 - 17/02/2021

    Crash on game exit when a reference had not been garbage collected by the lua vm.
    Missing enum value CellPadding in Imgui Lua (Pull Request: 496).
    Crash when using Override/Observe on pure script functions.
    Crash when reloading mods using Override/Observe.
    Crash when a malformed lua file was loaded with "require".
    Lua execution error when a callback used a global variable because environments were not applied.
    Fix memory leaks when reloading mods using Observe/Override.
    Memory optimization for calls.
    Replaced the hacky thread safety used for the Lua VM with TiltedCore's Lockable<T>.

1.11.1 - 15/02/2021

    API changes to support Imgui 1.81 and added missing ColorButton overloads.
    Override has now 2 overloads to simplify usage, this will completely remove the original function or add one if it doesn't exist:
      Override(typeName, fullFunctionName, shortFunctionName, function)
      Override(typeName, functionName, function) - both full and short names are set to functionName
    Observe has now 2 overloads to simplify usage, this will not remove the original function but will add one if it doesn't exist:
      Observe(typeName, fullFunctionName, shortFunctionName, function)
      Observe(typeName, functionName, function) - both full and short names are set to functionName
    Upgrade Imgui 1.80 to 1.81.
    Fixed Override so that it can override at runtime after scripts have been loaded.
    Revert Lua caching of functions as the new override method will work regardless.
    Fix game crash when a script used "require" on a malformed file.

1.11.0 - 13/02/2021

    Override function to either listen to a function or to replace a game function. Despite its name it can also be used to extend a type by adding a new function. Usage is as such:
Override("PlayerPuppet", "IsA", "IsA", true, function(self, className) print(className); return true end)
The first parameter is the class type, second the full name of the function, the third is the short name (usually they are the same), the fourth boolean is used to specify if this is a replacement of the function or not, if set to true it will replace entirely the original function, if set to false, your function will be called before the original function is called. The last parameter is your handler function, note that the parameters are passed according to the RED script definition.
    Telemetry, the experiment gave us the data we wanted, obviously a lot of people use the mod and we are very happy about that! We are sorry this caused so much drama, it wasn't the intention and quite frankly we still don't really understand why.
    Calling RED functions used to be cached, given that functions can be overridden at any time the cache has been removed, it's a bit slower but shouldn't be visible in the real world.

1.10.3 - 12/02/2021

    Using the up and down arrows in the console now retrieves the command history

1.10.2 - 07/02/2021

    Added Telemetry so we know how many people use CET (can be disabled in settings), note that we do not store any information we just count the number of players

1.10.1 - 06/02/2021

    Fix TweakDBID issues with large arrays
    Fix TweakDBID crash when using specific functions

1.10 - 05/02/2021

    Updated to game version 1.12
    Updated RED4ext.sdk to the latest
Proper sandboxing (#454):
    Each mod is (right now) assigned sqlite3 database implicitly, accessible through db lua object (will be changed later to on-demand through info in metadata file)
    Introduced proper sandbox with LuaSandbox helper class
    Bytecode cannot be loaded now (native modules included)
    require cache is reset on Reload all mods now
    require does not support '.' instead of '/' now (only breaking change, functions the same otherwise)
    All pathing is now relative to mod (breaking change, includes all io functions, dofile() and such included)
    stripped ImGui, json, io and dofile and such from console sandbox (only needed things left for it in)
    Added dir() command for mods to list directory contents
    Errors that happen in Game, game class methods,... should now log into proper environment (to console when executed from console, to mod log when executed from mod)
More ImGui stuff(#452, #453, #457, #460):
    Enabled ImGui keyboard navigation. (ctrl + tab to switch window, arrow keys to navigate)
    Removed the deprecated power argument in Drag and Slider widgets, replace it with the newer ImGuiSliderFlag (breaking change)
    Made the argument open optional in ImGui.Begin(), ImGui.BeginModal(), ImGui.BeginTabItem(), so the close button can be hidden when setting flags.
    Added bindings for the new tables widget in ImGui 1.8.0
    Added selected mouse utilities back
    Added bindings for ImDrawlist
TweakDB binding (#461)

1.9.6 - 30/01/2021

    Added jsonsupport to Lua

1.9.1 - 23/01/2021


    Added support for the latest patch 1.10
    UI with settings will now ask you for a console key on first launch, you can edit it later
    Mods can now request hotkeys via registerHotkey, the user can pick what key they want to use in the menu
    You can now instantiate game objects with NewObject('class name'), do not expect this to work with every class without any issues
    SQLite3 support was added, you can use the entire API at the moment, we are going to remove all open functions in the near future and replace it with a open that can only open a single database linked to your mod
    Mods will now log to their own log files, you can also use spdlogto print in your log


    Scripting is now handling memory correctly, calling Game.GetPlayer() every frame is fine now
    Game doesn't crash when exiting anymore
