Edit: Nevermind. Fileshack still has only 1.01.

I'm getting like ~180kbytes/s down on the torrent, btw, which is my max right now.
That's a big file, but there's a whole new map in it too.

This is great! The update gets us ready for the SDK too so that should be out soon :>.
I'll get you some screens, JakUp. I'm sure there'll be a few around soon too.

Hold up. When I launch the game it just sits in the background using up 50%+ cpu. I'll try a reboot and if that doesn't work I'll try reinstalling the game and running the update from a stock 1.0 install.

A reboot did it. I think it was just securom because the little CD cursor didn't even come up last time.

It is a DM map.

I'm not sure. I don't usually run servers but I started up a DM on lan and poof, I had Asylum. Looks like it's gonna be fun for DM though.

Here's the same 2 screenshots plus 2 more in png.

Be warned though. I think the problem I had at first isn't cured. I can't start the game back up because it's sitting there at 52% again.
For some reason fraps is working when it wants too too, heh. There should have been about 5 more. One shot being the awesome 3 sided terrarium thing that's gonna be great for smashing up some glass. Give me a bit to sort all this out and I'll get a couple more. With fraps it might be my G15 software overriding it, dunno.

200 kb/s from Fileplanet - I don't care what anyone says, being a subscriber there for stuff like this is worth every cent.

The game refuses to load up for me w/ the 1.2 patch :( Tried uninstalling & reinstalling so far...

I've been hearing a few reports of that...

I reported a SP gameplay bug a week or so back an d i'd like to see if it made the patch.

This is all it fixes for now, Greg from VU games said they should have another one soon...

Adds a new Multiplayer Map, Fixes minor issues within localized versions of F.E.A.R., and Pre-patches the game in preparation for the release of the F.E.A.R. SDK/ Mod tools.

I'm still getting the same issue here after a fresh fear install + 1.02 patch.
It only seems to want to start up after a reboot. After that you have to reboot again to start it up a second time.

I'm posting 6 more screens. The map is freakin huge. I couldnt' find the places I wanted to grab screens of before which is why it took me so long, heh. Uploading now and I'll have them for you in a sec. You can get on the roof in a couple places and the sound is just awesome. I recommend just loading up a deathmatch and walking around and listening.

Here ya go. (6 screenshots in PNG)

More interesting news on the bug. With patch 1.02 installed the autorun from the DVD crashes as well with a windows error like this...

AppName: autorun.exe AppVer: 1.0.0.6 ModName: nvtrpdemux.ax
ModVer: 4020.177.0.0 Offset: 000013f4

I uninstall the game and poof, the autorun magicly works again.
I don't know what's up with it. I reinstall just a stock 1.0 and try the autorun and it crashes now. It always ran fine before with or without 1.01.

Kinda funny. Here's the fix for the startup problems and this makes sense now why it worked after a reboot..

Well,

here's a little "fix" for the 1.02 not starting problem:

Close your internet connection
start F.E.A.R.
minimize F.E.A.R. (p.e. with ALT+TAB)
Start internet connection
Switch to F.E.A.R. Window
Enjoy F.E.A.R.


of course it's not a permanent solution but it's worth a try
Found here: http://forums.vugames.com/thread.jspa?threadID=9220&tstart=0
And works for me.

Did you have a chance to check this map out yet, Jakup, or anyone?

I seem to get some pauses here and there when actually playing it on a server, but other than that it's pretty kickass for DM. Lots of places people can fire at you from every angle. I'm getting pwned as usual but it's fun.
