Le nouveau patch du jeu est enfin là, après de longues semaines d'attente. Il fait quand même 270Mo environ est ce trouve ici (ou encore ici, merci NoFrag), quand au patch 1.5 à 1.6 c'est . Voici un petit récapitulatif du ChangeLog :

  • 2 nouvelles maps (Liberation of Caen et Raid on Angheila).
  • Modifications de quelques maps déjà existante.
  • Ajout de Punkbuster.
  • Bugs corrigés.
  • Modifications de l'interface.


Pour le voir en entier


  • New Map - Liberation of Caen

    Liberation of Caen is a new map for BF1942 owners. It includes a whole new
    army, the Canadians. The army includes the Sexton SPA and the Lynx scout car,
    as well as new skins, flags, voice overs, and a new Assault rifle and the
    Johnson M1941 LMG. The Germans in this map are also equipped with a new scout
    vehicle, the Kettenkrad.

  • New Map - Raid on Agheila

    Raid on Agheila is a new map playable for owners of the Secret Weapons of WWII
    expansion pack. This exciting map adds a bevy of new vehicles, including
    mobile spawn points, stationary rocket launchers, a new tank, new
    self-propelled artillery, and the Flettner, an experimental helicopter.

  • Modifications to Existing Maps

    • The Russian dive bomber, Ilyushin IL-2, has replaced one of the Yak 9
      fighters in Kursk and Kharkov.

    • Battle of Britain can now be played using Objective Mode. Secret Weapons
      of WWII expansion pack is NOT required to play Battle of Britain in this
      mode.

    • Invasion of the Philippines has been slightly revised. The Japanese
      Destroyer has been rotated to face North, giving the Japanese a better
      chance at the start. The out of bounds area has been pushed back, and ticket
      bleeds have been slightly reduced.



  • Client Specific Changes/Bug Fixes

    • Added support for Punkbuster anti-cheat software


    • In-game HUD Player and Map Voting Interface Via Scoreboard

      • To access the new scoreboard features either enter the spawn interface
        and click the Scoreboard button, or press TAB. (NB- clicking the right
        mouse button while holding down TAB will give you a cursor- clicking on
        the 'lock' button will lock the scoreboard onscreen.)

      • Features of the new scoreboard:

        • Add buddies.

        • Vote to kick players.

        • Vote to kick a player on your team (only your team can vote).

        • Vote for maps.

        • All players can be seen through scrolling the score list.

        • Integrated vote dialog to respond to vote requests.

        • Added two new key bindings map to Yes and No for the vote response
          dialog (default: Yes: 7 and No: 8).

        • Added a new key binding for quick access to the map vote dialog (default:
          INSERT).

        • Please note that if you already have these keys bound in your custom
          profile you will need to assign these functions to other keys or use for
          them to work.





    • Improved Server Browser

      • Support for favorite servers as a separate list accessible from the
        filters pane. NOTE: The favorite servers list must be refreshed manually
        to reflect the latest information from these servers.

      • Added button to place server in favorites list.

      • Much better filters and updated performance.

      • Added new filter buttons:

        • Populated only.

        • Favorites.

        • Pure Servers (Content Check).

        • PunkBuster only



      • Server Information pane will now detail which mods are present in the
        server rotation - Fixed the "Add server" button in the in-game server
        browser- now works for servers that use the standard GameSpy BF1942 ports.

      • Added button which takes you to the server rental service website.

      • Added LEGEND button (looks like question mark). This details what the
        main icons represent in the Server Browser Interface.



    • Other Fixes / Changes

      • The game.listPlayers command shows the cd key hash of the local player.

      • Slightly improved loading speed of maps.

      • Fixed sinking destroyer bug.

      • Changed APC exit point to minimize certain exploits.

      • Fixed an exploit involving damage to Aircraft Carriers.

      • Fixed crash bug when a dead bot was thrown through a window or door.



    • Dedicated Server Specific Changes / Bug Fixes

      Added Support for Punkbuster Anti-Cheat Software


    • Win32 Dedicated Server Implemented Through Back-port of the Linux
      Dedicated Server

      • Runs in console mode displaying a status monitor with an interactive
        console.

      • The server uses a different binary than the game (bf1942_w32ded.exe).

      • Status monitor changes (compared to Linux server 1.5):

        • Added chat feedback.

        • Added number of tickets and current round number.

        • Added game state (playing, paused, etc.).





    • Added Support for Mixing Mods, Maps and Game Modes in the Maplist.

      • (NOTE: This is only supported from the dedicated server GUI)



    • IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT NEW SERVER FUNCTIONALITY



      Please note that all old maplists are incompatible with this new feature and
      will have to be created again. Running the server with an old map list will
      not work.

      • As a result of this the game.serverGamePlayMode command in the
        ServerSettings.con file and the +game command line argument are now
        obsolete for dedicated servers and should not be used.

      • The Maplist.con was changed to allow three arguments:

        game.addLevel < mapname > < game mode > < mod >, e.g.

        game.addLevel Gazala GPM_CQ bf1942

        ** NOTE : the following commands now also use this functionality:

        • admin.changeMap

        • admin.setNextLevel



      • Updated the DedicatedServer.exe launcher program to allow for creation
        of maplists with the new functionality.



    • Updated Chat System

      • Fixed "chat lag" by streaming messages over a high-priority channel.

      • Added basic flood protection which prevents players from taking to
        much chat bandwidth by "spamming".

      • Added chat text as messages to the status monitor console.



    • GameSpy/ASE Host Reporting Changes

      • Added (kills/deaths) to ASE score format.

      • Added roundTimeLeft to GameSpy keys.

      • Added reporting of cd key hashes to GameSpy keys.

      • Added active_mods key showing all mods in map cycle.

      • Added content_check key showing content checking mode.

      • Converted GameSpy reporting keys to lowercase and replaced spaces with
        underscores to facilitate filtering in external browsers.

      •  



    • Upgraded XML Logging Format to 1.1

      • Added support for CD key hashes for players.

      • Fixed a few spelling errors for keys.

      • Fixed a bug where compressed XML logs where sometimes being corrupted.

      • Escapes non-printable characters as bf:nonprint tags.

      • Added chat text messages to the XML stream.



    • Updated Banning System

      • Bans can be set on CD key hashes as well as IP addresses.

      • Timeouts can be specified in these ways:

        admin.banPlayerKey
        [timeout]

        • Where timeout can take one of these formats:

          • Omitted or 'perm' meaning that the ban is permanent

          • An integral number meaning the number of seconds the ban will be
            active (i.e. 3600 means one hour)

          • 'round', meaning the ban is active until the next map

          • An integral number prepended by a colon (i.e. :1234567), meaning
            the epoch exporation time of the ban (number of seconds since 1 Jan
            1970). This option is most usable by external tools.



        • IP address bans continue to work as earlier but include the new
          timeout options as well.

        • Bans are stored as absolute times in banlist.con. Existing bans in
          banlist.con will be interpreted as permanent bans.





    • Updated Content CRC Generation

      • Generation bat files are now created only for the mods you select. The
        new bat files are named getcrc-.bat.



    • Updated Remote Console Output

      • The remote console now mirrors text written to the main console by
        prepending each mirrored line by a hash character (#). This is useful to
        capture chat text from external tools that periodically send commands to
        the remote console.

      • Please note that if several remote connections are made, the state of
        the mirroring is cleared so that mirrored console lines can easily be lost.
        Thus if you plan to use this feature in a tool, please only connect with
        one remote console connection at a time to ensure that you will get the
        correct results.



    • Other Fixes/Changes

      • Added installation sanity checking that will tell you about common
        installation errors such as missing files. The sanity checking is done
        automatically at startup.

      • Added more readable error messages for common errors such as
        misspelled level names.

      • The game.listPlayers command lists cd key hashes of connected players
        when running in internet mode.

      • The game.showPorts console command can be invoked to display the ports
        currently used by the server.

      • Added overlayPath feature to support running multiple server instances
        from the same installation directory. To set up an instance, please follow
        these steps:

        • Create a new, empty directory to hold the instance, for instance
          C:\Server1

        • Copy the mods\bf1942\Settings directory from the main installation
          to the new directory

        • Create a new, empty Logs directory in the instance directory

        • Start the server with the overlayPath argument in a shortcut:

          • bf1942_w32ded.exe +overlayPath C:\Server1

          • Please note that the working directory for the server must still
            be set to the main installation directory.

          • Also please note that if your overlayPath contains spaces you will
            need to quote the path in the arguments in one of these ways:

            • bf1942_w32ded.exe +overlayPath 'c:\path with spaces\server1'
              (single quotes)

            • bf1942_w32ded.exe +overlayPath """c:\path with spaces\server1"""
              (note that these are three double quotes)







          • Admins Take Notice

            The 1.6 patch radically changes the format for the maplist.con file. Please
            see below for details, but note that your current maplists will not work when
            you update to the 1.6 patch. We've included the information you need to modify
            them once the 1.6 patch is released.
