Battlefield Vietnam Patch Status

The Battlefield Vietnam Website (thanks BattleField Central) has a status report on the eagerly anticipated first patch for Battlefield Vietnam, saying the version 1.01 update "has entered the home stretch here at EA and should be ready for release in the very near future....While future Battlefield Vietnam updates will include game features that were added to Battlefield 1942 post-ship (such as the Voting GUI), v1.01 is intended to address community related issues." The update goes on to detail server fixes, and the following incomplete list of client fixes:

  • Sort by Ping fixed in Server Browser
  • Scrollbar fixed in Server Browser
  • 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

American soldiers are not murderers, they are the murder weapons. Guns dont kill people people kill people. Soldiers dont start wars they are simply one of the tools used to fight them.

You're right about it not being blood for oil but you fail to realize how much money is being made from this war. ITs more like blood for lucrative contracts.

Our (the US) army has been in the middle east since 91 or sooner, depending on what you mean by "in." We've been meddling in thier politics since the 50s and before that it was european nations meddling in their politics and invading them and stuff.

9/11 was an extreme response to the US presence in the middle east this doesnt justify this crime against humanity but it does raise the question of weather or not its worth it to maintain a prescence in the middle east. Basicly If we want to put bases whereever we damn well please this is the price we're likely to pay.

CNN isnt really right wing they are a profit motivated company like any other company and right wing has been profitable hopefully things will swing back. There will always be an independant media, even if we have to distribute it on the insides of matchbooks and spray it onto interstate overpasses.

Nothing personal Inkswich I really kinda picked your post at random because it had the issues I wanted to explore. Of course you can still flame me if you want. I'm sure this thread will bloat to the point where I won't want to read it anyhow.

I'm happy to see EA is adjusting the bullet deviation on the M60. I was worried they'd just take the LAW away from it and think that fixed the problem.

American soldiers do not murder women and children. That's just too stupid to even humor.

What rock have you been living under? Typical ignorant American statement.

Blood for oil? Just as stupid. It would be MUCH cheaper to buy the oil than to make war for it. MUCH cheaper.

The only smart thing you said, however it is still uninformed. What you fail to understand is that the tax payers are paying for the war, not the people that are benefiting financially from it.

Our army is in the Middle East because we were attacked. 3000 + US citizens died in that attack. Women and children, too.

As "learning" point out already, Iraq had nothing to do with 911. Bush's so called reason for invading Iraq was based on them believing that Iraq had undisclosed Weapons of Mass Destruction and Bio weapons. To this date they have still not found anything....but they have taken control of the oil fields (fancy that).

Christ on a pogostick... left or right, you're all still idiots at the center.

On topic: It's about time they fixed the game. The lop-sided matches were getting old. They need to get some more maps out there as well.

BEHOLD, AN NEW IDEA HAS BEEN BORN,
one that has never ever been voiced before:

"It's likely that you owe your freedom to make statements like this to someone who was willing to fight and die to ensure that freedom. So why don't you go to Iraq, pick up a weapon and stand opposed if you feel that strongly about it? Or do you intend to improve the matter by sitting in the safety of your home and trolling message boards?"

YEAH! yeah! thats the spirit! YOu gonna answer him? huh you hippie bastage? Hey there is a collect call from osama, do you accept? I bet you would! hah!

You liberal/communist/socialists keep up with your BS and one day the US Army will be coming for you.

CNN right wing? BAH HAH! If you think that, you are already beyond hope.
