I think that's down to servers not being on the new version.

Nope. Playing solo campaign, not online, not on a server, text corrupts everywhere there's a text box.
As for sound drop out, haven't really noticed it as a major problem, however I will say that I don't seem to get many character hit sounds. If I fire at someone, only the sound of the gun firing seems to occur, and I might be hearing bullets hit the environment behind and around the target, but I never seem to notice any sound indicating a bullet actually hitting a target (person).

I"m planning to give it a try again tonight. Hopefully most servers will be updated by then.

The only other major issue I have with the game (aside from balance issues, but those are always ongoing) is the problem with invisible characters. It's only happened to me once, but it's still something that needs fixing asap.

Huh. I just tried Quake Live for the first time like 2 weeks ago (ya I know, a little late to the party on that one) and it worked fine in FF4 with no hacks. I didn't even have to restart the browser. Totally seamless.

You can turn that off in the options.

Text glitch is even worse, affecting everything nearly all the time now.
And if anything, my bot teammates seem even stupider than before.

Sound still glitched... Splash has really dropped the ball on this one. Messed up fonts, Glitchy sound, and some people claiming worse FPS , tho FPS has never been a problem with my system... Sound glitch and font glitch has been universal... Oh well, back to Witcher 2 and Arma 2 and Quake 3 live for my Twitch fix...sigh

Maybe try a different server. Medics revive me all the time. Maybe you were playing with people who still didn't know what they were doing yet.
Or maybe they were just dicks.

Sometimes it's hard to tell...

Anyway, I'm glad to see they fixed the sound issue finally. The alt-tab thing is welcome too. That annoyed the hell out of me.

Well RE-fuel is a great map, so yea, I am glad the sound is fixed..hadnt played that map too much because of sound glitch... But yea, as an Engi I am top of scoreboard all the time... Just doing Objectives ususally gets me there, tho I find it really easy to kill in this game, Even tho it is a lil too twitch for me. Can alwasy see the COD fanboys in maps tho,.... doing NO objectives and in the stupidest spots trying to get kills...LOL.

Game STILL has font issues, horrible auto facing feature when buffing or reviving peeps, 100 FPS feels like 20 FPS... meh. Had a blast at first, but NO one plays team anything anymore, just after patch played a rounnd, had 5 Medics around me, died... had to revive my self, at Spawn point....

COD ruined any chance this game , or any other real team based will ever make it online.

Sad sad day.
