The patch includes the fixed version of bg_assault (see post below) and many other small changes. Only servers owners need to install this patch. Server admins please note a fixed mapcycle.txt using bg_assault_r2 (fixed version) instead of the normal assault is included, be aware of this if you put it on your server.

Reduced pistol constant damage range to 8 yards (from 15).

So once again i find that the pistol is useless

as historically accurate as it may be it does not make for good gameplay. Officer i s my favourite class yet its onl;y truly effective on maps like ambush where you dont get shot to **** by enemy fire. It just seems this is making even more hurdles for the officer to jump over

As for the rest of the patch good work yet im not sure how the shot will play now.

The pistol will still deal out deadly chest and stomach shots from close distance, the damage will just degrade slightly earlier. Chest Damage should still be good to about 15-20 yards.

Well, chances are that someone you hit at that distance is not at full health anyway, and 7 yards constant damage range is not a big difference. We will see how this feels in-game however.

SP1 is good but what about SP2? is that good?

SP2 caused some problems with certain Linux distributions, so we still officially distribute SP1. SP2 only contained a few minor fixes.
