Apprantly the patch went back into QA yesterday for final approval after fixing the bug found last year.

 

Full details of the patch list below.

 

Original thread & community discussion on CM forums: here

 

Hi all,

 

Here is the fixlist for the 2nd PC Patch.

 

It's still undergoing testing so I don't have a release date yet, will update you all with a confirmed release date when I have one.

 

The PC patch upon release will also contain the 2nd DLC Pack "Overwatch", contents of which have already been announced.

 

 

  • Support added for 2 new PvP game modes included in DLC Pack 2
  • The host is now able to press "Start" button to ready up and begin the 10 second countdown into game irrespective of whether all players are ready or not.
  • Improved multiplayer stability.
  • Online synchronisation has been improved mitigating various issues such as shots fired not being registered and missing animations
  • Medics no longer become unable to move if the player they are trying to heal attempts to heal themselves at the same time.
  • The corpse looting inventory now appears appropriately when characters are killed
  • The corpse looting inventory updates appropriately when swapping weapons.
  • Tweaks and amends to enemy and friendly AI.
  • The damaged vehicle icon no longer becomes stuck on screen if the player is spawned into a vehicle just as it becomes critically damaged.
  • Fly in camera at the start of the Lumber Yard Infiltration mission now behaves appropriately
  • alt tabbing when in the lobby no longer causes graphical corruption on ground texture
  • Speed hack checking has been activated to block 3rd party speed hacks during online games.
  • Anti-cheat measures implemented to combat leaderboard hacking
  • Ammo counter for Fire team leaders in PvP matches now counts down the remaining ammo correctly.
  • Vehicle control responsiveness improved for clients, with input lag reduced
  • Sessions that you cannot join such as those that contain DLC not present on the players machine appear as greyed out on the browse server screen.
  • If someone without DLC is invited to a game that requires DLC content they will receive a message explaining this and the game can still be started. They no longer take up a space in the lobby.
  • Improved On & Offline stability
  • Player positioned appropriately after exiting a vehicle.
  • Players are no longer able to access a locked vehicle by using an unlocked vehicle
  • Mines are no longer triggered by neutral (inactive) vehicles
  • Death cam view behaves correctly if the player dies whilst in a vehicle and swapping between 3rd & 1st person camera views
  • It is no longer possible to enter aimed view mode while the weapon select OSD is open.
  • Binocular functionality no longer impaired by previously selected inventory item.
  • Weapon torches now turn off properly when swapping out the current weapon via ammo crates with the torch light switched on.
  • Players stance is now correctly maintained after operating an emplaced weapon
  • The player is now able to order a fire team under their control to operate an emplaced weapon
  • "Move To" orders now correctly issued to the pilot rather than individual fire team members when mixed fire teams occupy the crew seats in helicopters.
  • Helicopter chain guns no longer jam
  • Weapons rotations for a.i. gyrostablised weapons are no longer updated if they've not got a target set.
  • Weapon OSD for the M134 Minigun in the AH-6J Helicopter now displays the correct number of rounds loaded (9999).
  • Helicopters no longer make inappropriate wheel contact surface sounds sound when flying over grassland.
  • "Live Link" feature in the Mission Editor should now default to launch the game in Windowed mode
  • The mission editor should now be able to read multiple databases so text strings can be easily added.
  • Unavailable Bradley and ZBD200 squad references removed from Mission editor
  • Mouse look sensitivity for mounted weapons is now aligned with other weapons
  • Respawn timer now displayed in all game modes.
  • Fixed crash using empty string with OFP:displaySystemMessage
  • Fixed rare crash in AI input. Unchecked possible invalid cast in AI input.
  • Changed client prediction code for extrapolating positions, based on how far in the past there is accurate server data. (Optimisation)
  • getVelocities bug fix for helicopter suspension. Refactor removed getVelocities usage.
  • Audio Feedback Manager can search blocked speakers list by name as well. (Optimisation)
  • Destructor of commands is always called in the CommandPool. Prevents possible memory leaks.
  • walkEchelonControlledSubUnits now recurses through only controlled units. Now processes correct sub units.
  • Friendly fire feedback will revert to root echelon if no fireteam members are still alive. Processes feedback case correctly.
  • Fixed clients showing low LOD back weapon between their feet after looting ammo crates.
  • The player can now add custom audio and modify further AI parameters (Weapon usage values and dispersion system).

 

 

The team have kindly created a help file, that explains how you will be able to add custom audio into the game, and you can download it by following the below link:
