FIXES & UPDATES IN 1.0.4.0:

GENERAL:
- Copied map files can now be overwritten/deleted without
quitting first.
- The console command "com_allowconsole" will stay set after
leaving the game.

INTERFACE:
- Improved Game Browser sorting and filtering: You can sort by
up to three criteria, which will be displayed just under the
server list, with the more recently clicked criteria sorting
first. For example, to sort by ping time, then number of
players, then gametype, click them in the reverse order:
Click "GAMETYPE," then "PLAYERS," then "PING." The server
list will be sorted by the fastest ping, then the servers with
the fewest players, then the gametype.
Clicking a category more than once will keep its position as
the primary sorting criteria, but will change the sorting order.
After cycling through all available sort types, clicking the
category a final time will remove it from the sorting. Each
criteria has specific behavior with one or two clicks, as
listed:
Favorite Server: Display only favorites, or only non-favorites.
Password Enabled: Display only locked server, or only unlocked
servers.
Dedicated Server: Display only Dedicated servers, or only Listen
servers.
Punkbuster Enabled: Display only PB-enabled servers, or only PB-
disabled servers.
Server Name: Sort server names A to Z, or Z to A.
Ping: Sort by ping Low to High, or High to Low.
Players: Sort by Players High to Low, High to Low (non-full),
Low to High, or Low to High (non-empty).
Gametype: Sort by Deathmatch, Team DM, Tournament, CTF, or
Arena CTF.
Map: Sort by map CTF1 to DM9, or DM9 to CTF1.

- The Game Browser now displays more than 1000 servers.
- Fixed a problem with the refresh time on the Game Browser.
- Added a Game Browser filter for full or empty servers.
- Players can now connect to a server while the Game Browser is
refreshing.
- Game Browser sorting will display the correct server information
without the need to refresh the list.
- Clicking anywhere on the scrollbar except the button itself will
advance a page up or down instead of shifting to that position.
- Non-full server sorting now disregards full servers.
- Game Browser hover window updates when sort order is changed.
- Fixed a Game Browser slowdown issue with high numbers of servers.
- Added Game Browser server list scrolling with the mousewheel,
keyboard arrows up/down, and keyboard Page Up/Page Down.
- The Game Browser hover window will only appear when mousing over
a highlighted server.
- Sorting by server name will now ignore colored names, brackets,
etc.

MULTIPLAYER:
- The dedicated server window will now be titled with the
si_name setting instead of "Quake 4".

btw: my first post, hi everyone!

But with support from ASE, kquery4 and even Gamespy we dont really need the in-game browser anymore :)

2 additional things I was hoping they would sort in the first update:

FOV setting defaults when you disconnect - that needs to be fixed
and
the bob and roll etc setting needs to be client side and not server side.

I wonder if this patch will be available using the ingame update button. Why would I want to install gamespy, or all seeing eye when the ingame browser is just fine?

I have never really liked gamespy anyway, and the all seeing eye is shareware so go figure.

I am not liking Quake 4 multiplayer so far compared to ut2k4 which makes me want ut2k7 now.

The browser fix is really nice, well done on that, I'm getting sounds disappearing intermittently however, (jump pads etc), very frustrating.

glad they released a patch, but i'm not happy that all they did was work on the browser.. theres a lot of other little things that need to be done.

however, at least the SDK is released now..

"We are also working on a larger, required update that will address a broader range of reported issues in both multiplayer and single player."

Seems that the 1.04 patch has also removed the CD/DVD check.

Can someone confirm that the new Quake4 Patch 1.0.4 has the No-CD and No-DVD included. I will download and apply if I don't have to insert my Quake4 DVD to play.

Thanks

I just downloaded, installed it, took out my DVD, and loaded up single player just fine.

No DVD needed on my end after patching the game.

Now THAT'S what I call customer friendly!!!
Valve, hear this?!?!!

P.S.:
In every Doom game I remember they did it the same way, releasing a patch some day which disabled CD copy protection. But they never did it that early... :)

Yeah, this was done a lot earlier than I expected. It's great though and hopefully more companies will start doing this.
