Joint Operations Patch

A new Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising - General Update is now available, a 26 MB patch that rolls together the recent flurry of updates to NovaLogic's multiplayer first-person shooter (thanks Frans). Word is: "You do not need this update if you have already received the update through the update wizard."

" I don't understand the question... what camping?"
Like I said I donot own the game, in other words this is all based on ehat people have said in here and in reviews.

"The last-but-not-least element that keeps the game from breaking through to something consistently fun is, ironically, the way vehicles are set up. In addition to having no tanks or planes, only the attack chopper lets you operate the vehicle and shoot things at the same time. Everything else is like driving an extremely death-prone bus. And the Stinger and AT4 launchers are so powerful that the passenger vehicles become killboxes if you dare stay inside for more than a minute.............Nerf the snipers and add some attack vehicles, and it could be a real barn stormer. " from one review.

Some people complained about camping so I brought it up. As to the question of hoe a vehicule could help, simple a fast moving jeep with a gun mounted on it could help someone get to a sniper while being to fast to hit. Thisis just an example.

As for your other questions. "Not sure what you are looking for in regards to fixes"

From another review: "With that said, Joint Operations is already a great game with still more potential for improvement. When it really gets going, it's an exhilarating game of modern combat, albeit one that's also weighed down with some bugs and gameplay issues. For what it's worth, the same was true of Battlefield 1942 when it shipped, though that game's growing pains seem long forgotten by now."
Most reviews i've read have a comment similar to this one.

Since you've had a great experience with the game I assume that th earlier pathes helped and that the game is worth buying.
