BF2 Patch 1.4 released…finally

Posted: September 6, 2006 in Games Review, General Area

In the gaming industry, we all know most games are released in order to meet a deadline, well …Battlefield 2 was one of them. After a year+, with so many bugs and server crashes, we finally reach patch 1.4 which is supposed to help in much needed areas.

New Map: Road to Jalalabaad (Conquest 16-32-64, Singleplayer, Co-op)
– New Server Option: No Vehicles mode (Infantry Only)

Gameplay changes

– The vehicle drop has been modified to help prevent exploits such as blocking enemy vehicles, destroying vehicles and commander assets, or as an alternative to artillery. (gay) improvisation of available reasources is what makes the US military so great                                              – C4 tossing distance has been reduced. (gay)
– A prone->crouch delay has been added. (gay)
Bug Fixes:
– Fixed the Linux server hangs when trying to load a Special Forces Co-Op map.
– Another attempt at fixing the Red/Blue nametag bug. (great)
– Fixed the missing server info on the map briefing screen.
– Fixed the server browser issues with updating info.
– Fixed the filter by maps size option in the server browser.
– Fixed a low reproducibility crash bug related to the vehicle drop.
– Fixed a crash in Co-op after a player is revived without a kit.
– Fixed a server crash on Linux 32 when trying to rotate maps in Coop Mode.
– Fixed the occasionnal red distance marker appearing on the ground.
– Fixed the bug that caused the player’s arms to become invisible when switching weapons.
– Co-Op bot console commands now function on local servers.
– Fixed the excessive damage taken by the Muscle Car.
– Adjusted the minimum number of players to start the round on ranked servers. The new values for 16, 32 and 64 players are 6, 8 and 8 respectively.
– Re-enabled unlocks on unranked servers.
– Commander options are no longer available whilst commander is dead. (good)                                                                                           – Fixed bug where a spawn point is shown as selected when it is not if player has spawned in during the preview round.
– Co-Op (Local Server) – Fixed the issue where no other players may join the server if the server host is kicked and banned.
