Evil Genius 1.01 Patch

By Maarten Goldstein, Nov 11, 2004 1:50pm PST

The first Evil Genius patch has been released, updating the US retail edition to v1.01. Fixes several game bugs, though to completely fix them you need to start a new game instead of loading a saved game. Thanks 3D Gamers.

  • Do we know if this makes any changes to henchmen special abilities? I know that in particular Lord Kane's Smooth Operator ability is way overpowered. When you use it on an agent, the agent stops what he/she is doing and doesn't react to anything, even fights, until the animation is complete... even if Lord Kane has to run from the other side of the island.

    Now, don't get me wrong, I enjoy rendering agents helpless for the time it takes Lord Kane to run over there, and I've exploited it to power-level my other henchmen. I just wonder if they changed the behavior so that agents don't freeze and ignore everything until Lord Kane gets in range, instead of from the moment you click on them.
