Battlefield Vietnam Patch

The first patch for Battlefield Vietnam is now available, updating the war-themed shooter to version 1.01. The update consists of a 17 MB client patch on the Battlefield Vietnam Website, mirrored on 3D Gamers, FileFront, FilePlanet ((registration required) thanks Brennon Thompson), Fileshack (registration required), and Worthplaying and a 111 MB dedicated server on the Battlefield Vietnam Website, mirrored on 3D Gamers, FileFront, Fileshack (registration required), and Worthplaying; while the new dedicated Linux server can be found on the Battlefield Dedicated Server Forum Distribution site (thanks BattleField Central) and mirrored on 3D Gamers and Fileshack (registration required). The server includes optimizations and GameSpy & ASE fixes, and here's the list of client fixes:

-Sort by Ping fixed in Server Browser.
-Scrollbar fixed in Server Browser.
-Player number now displays properly if more than 10000 players.
-Soldier prediction fixed to remove jerky movements when walking/jumping.
-M60 removed from the LAW kit and replaced with M14.
-M60 and RPD min/max bullet deviation increased when standing/moving.
-M60 and RPD max bullet deviation decreased slightly when prone.
-Rate of fire and velocity of M60/RPD adjusted.
-Player movement speeds on Heavy Assault kits reduced slightly.
-Network overhead of vehicle engines and airlifting significantly reduced.
-Added minimap warning icon when enemies are within capture radius of an opposing team flag.
-The Dedicated Server option in the Multiplayer -> Create Game menu has been removed to fix potential issues with Punkbuster. Non dedicated Internet servers started from this menu will no longer use Punkbuster. As a result of these changes, Punkbuster can only be enabled when using the Standalone Dedicated Server. The required exe's have been included in the client 1.01 patch.
