Version 1.05
------------

This v1.05 update gives players two brand new multiplayer gameplay modes. Here are brief descriptions of the new modes.

Control mode:
Two teams compete for three Control Points. Teams earn points for each Control Point they hold. To win, one team must reach the score limit before their opposition or have the highest score when the time limit expires.

Capture All mode:
Two teams compete for five Control Points. Team points are earned for neutralizing or capturing a Control Point as well as killing enemy players. To win, one team must capture all five Control Points, reach the score limit before opposing team does, or have the highest score when the time limit expires.

I must say they are pretty persistant with the patches and improving multiplayer with more maps, gameplay modes and the SDK. Then again it's funny what happens when a game sells well.

does it support custom resolutions?

i heard that 1.04 doesn't, it kept me from upgrading

Well, it's letting me run it at 1280x1024 by editting the config file..

Be warned about this patch though...once you install it, you can't load any save games from a previous version. It just crashes to the desktop.

oh damn, thanks for the warning. i only play the single player (er, replay rather, gone through the game more times than i can remember), and i've got saves at all my favorite fights lol, so that would have really sucked.

I actually found a way to make the saves work..you have to replace a certain file with the one from the 1.04 patch and they will load fine. The only problem with using the 1.04 file is that everytime you start the game, it informs you there is an update available to install. No big deal but kindof annoying. I'll try and find the specifics for you...

EDIT: Ok, here's a link (http://forums.vugames.com/message.jspa?messageID=276643)to a thread over at the VU Games forums. The 7th post shows how to do it. Apparently they are working on a hotfix to fix this problem.
