This weekend, we are proud to release Open Beta Patch 1.5. "Why so proud", you ask. Some of the fixes in this patch would not have been possible if it weren't for a couple of dedicated players that did some very thorough testing. Lebson admitted that the findings of these players led him to solving several large bugs. Also, our new programmer Adam "Macky" MacDonald implemented a brand new knockdown system that we are excited to implement and test.

This weekend, we are proud to release Open Beta Patch 1.5. "Why so proud", you ask. Some of the fixes in this patch would not have been possible if it weren't for a couple of dedicated players that did some very thorough testing. Lebson admitted that the findings of these players led him to solving several large bugs. Also, our new programmer Adam "Macky" MacDonald implemented a brand new knockdown system that we are excited to implement and test. Overall, we feel that the updates in this patch are worth the two week wait since Patch 1.4.



Here is a little more detail on a couple of the updates in this patch. First off, the chat glitch that caused you to hear people's voice at a central location on each map has been fixed. This fix, though not related to, was paralleled by a map glitch that caused player positions to not update. Thanks again as these were brought to you by your fellow players. The G43 has also been completely updated. It has a new world model, magazine model, skin, and shot spread. Other weapons have also had world model upgrades to increase performance. There have been a bunch of other updates as well, but I will let the changelog below inform you of those.

With the release of St. Marie Dumont last patch, you can believe Toni worked hard on fixing the spawn issues and other bugs so we don't leave you with an unplayable map. In honor of the new map, here are some screenshots.

This mod is well done, it's not flawless but they have released a playable version that brings much enjoyment to the player and gets the adrenaline pumping. I love what you did to the use of mic, having the sound come from the character, adds to the immersion and the immersion is great.

If you installed on top of an old version ,it should work just fine.

If it isn't working, there may be something going on with the master servers.

When you can see servers again, just add them to your favorites to keep track easier.
