I'm too hooked to Fallout 3 to play FC2 . . . AND the L4D demo comes out tomorrow. Looks like I'll start this back up around Christmas time.

Don't bother with L4D. What a stinker. ::(:

Those idiots http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/1521068375/m/4161024207 now I cant even use the FOV hack, how do you unload this dumb patch ? Kinda tired of driving around in circles anyway

Heh, that thread's getting locked soon. Don't worry about the FOV hack, it probably won't take long to fix. Would be nice if they allowed HOR+ but chances aren't good IMO if they didn't do it to begin with.


- Dedicated Server can now be launched in command line.


Maybe this means I can actually run the dedicated server on a server now...

Still waiting for a Racer_S fix to come out for the patch, seeing as Ubisoft won't do it.

To tell the truth, I don't even care about a patch (unless it really went in and fixed the things I don't like, which I don't expect will happen). Since I got Fallout 3 and Dead Space, FC2 has been put on the back burner (as it wasn't particularly tickling my fancy to begin with). Have to get in the mood again to play it. Even though I've played Far Cry a gazillion times, I still enjoy playing it more than I do Far Cry 2.

I never get excited about Ubisoft's patches. Their patches always address issues that are unheard of. Maybe a 1 or 2 fixes for petty issues, but most of them just seem to be made up for the sake of pretending to show support.

No biggy, this patch doesn't fix anything that anyone anywhere ever wanted fixed anyway. ie; it's beyond ****ing pointless.

What about the 5.1 Dolby nonsense. What is that? I already have surround. Was it only 4.1 before? Is it for people with DDL. Which I now do.

Damn I was hoping for "Added slider to adjust time for enemies to respawn at checkpoints"

:(
