at approximately 9pm UK time. There have been some additional changes to the PC Patch notes, which are listed below;

Multiplayer
- Added client-side support for dedicated servers
- Ranked match lobbies will no longer end after every match... See More

Due to the demand from the community and better than anticipated progress on the server software, we have decided to release the dedicated server as an Open Beta rather than a Closed Beta, and make it available to all. To access the Dedicated Servers from the PC client, go to Player Match > Browse > change the “server type” filter to “Dedicated (Internet)” and then click browse. Please note that the initial availability of servers may be limited.

The full patch notes are below;

General
- Stability improvements to address rare and infrequent hangs
- Implemented a workaround for missing audio issues with certain hardware (SoundBlaster X-Fi, Realtek onboard, etc.)
- Fixed save games being lost or corrupted if connection to Steam is lost or if user switches to offline play

Multiplayer
- Added client-side support for dedicated servers
- Ranked match lobbies will no longer end after every match
- Fixed XP being incorrectly affected by offline play (though only in the local stats; this will be corrected next time you connect to multiplayer)
- Fixed other players sometimes appearing to have the wrong weapon or continuing to fire indefinitely after dying
- Fixed rare issue where players would be temporarily invisible
- Fixed some selection of servers and players in menus sometimes being incorrect

Considering that the game requires Steam and that will be the only way that the patch is deployed, I would say that the time estimate given by the patch notes should be accurate. I'm hoping to see some of my random framerate drops in DX11 go away.

Finally, with new 196.75 the mega freezing is gone, and in combination with the new patch (dedicated servers) the game has become very playable... really impressed!!!

I installed the latest nVidia drivers and AvP seems to be running much smoother and much faster.

The patch seems to cause some lighting issues in DX10 and DX11 mode. Flares cast weird shadows that shouldn't be there, and the flashlight has a square outline around it on certain levels that has a higher brightness inside the box than outside, but its not a smooth brightness transition.

Is anyone else with a DX10 card having trouble loading up the DX11 .exe? I thought you were able to run it and it would revert to DX10 mode. I have dual GTX 275s and it just crashes at startup with the "avp has stopped responding" or whatever. I am kind of annoyed because people say that dx11/dx10 mode is smoother.

DX10 is smoother, yes, and it works for me. Dunno.

Now that the patch seems to have fixed a few issues, I may snag this on steam after work.
