Community Update – 6/30/05
Update 1.01 Coming Soon
Thats right, the first Battlefield 2 Update is coming your way very soon. Weve kept quiet about this update so far, but today were going to reveal the major fixes coming with the Update. The best part is, every fix in this update is a result of Community feedback on the demo and retail game release.
-Fixed issues that caused the Multiplayer Browser to become unresponsive.
Weve added some new functionality and buttons to the Multiplayer Browser that make finding an open game of Battlefield 2 much, much easier. Issues users have encountered involving zero ping servers or browser hangs have all be addressed.
-Fixed an issue where some game controls were not available to be rebound within the Options menu.
Some functions previously were not available to be rebound in the Controls Options menus. These items have been added to make rebinding of functions much easier.
-Fixed a crash with rebinding LMB
Users who rebind the Left Mouse Button to “Move forward” rejoice!
With these fixes and more, it should be much easier to get in to a game of Battlefield 2 and that much easier to play it the way you want to play it. Look for this update to be deployed into battle some time next week!
Linux Server Build
Many of you have made us aware of issues with the previously released retail Linux server (2442) in both 32-bit and 64-bit environments. DICE has finished work on a replacement build and QA has been working hard to validate something that we can release to the community. Our goal is to get a fully operational version of the Linux server out to the Community ASAP. Stay tuned to this spot for updates.
BF2 Editor Update
Those of you who have been watching this space over the last couple of weeks are aware the BF2 Editor was intended to be released to the Community by the end of June. While we feel we are on the homestretch now in terms of being able to release a complete Battlefield 2 Mod Development Toolkit, we will not be able to meet our previously stated goal. At this time, we are committed to getting the Open Beta of the Battlefield 2 Editor released some time in July. Stay tuned to this space for more details.
