Battlefield 2042 Patch Tomorrow

DICE announces plans to release another patch for Battlefield 2042 tomorrow with a new round of fixes for the military first-person shooter. As explained in a post on the Battlefield Blog: "This means you can expect a large amount of fixes, balance changes and quality of life enhancements to come your way. And lastly, as we’ve kicked off the Preseason there are some new things to look forward to as well!" Word is new weekly missions will begin next week and a new game mode is coming to Portal. Here's word on all the gameplay changes:
Throughout several areas of the game we’ve introduced improvements to make your experience while interacting within maps feel smoother.

This includes over 150 individual fixes, small changes, and improvements across all of our Maps where we noticed they were detracting from gameplay, such as spawning, visual glitching or collision issues. Audio, rendering and interaction improvements and fixes for weapons, vehicles and Specialists are also included.

Copied from my post in another BF2042 thread above:

Alternatively, open up <Your Drive>:\Users\<Your User Name>\Documents\Battlefield 2042\settings\PROFSAVE_profile with notepad or some other text editor, and

Find and Remove these 10-12 lines that have:

GstKeyBinding.infantry.ConceptYaw

Save, and start BF2042. That way you don't lose ALL of your settings. My game seemed to autofill mouse for mouselook, so I didn't even have to reassign keys after that, it just worked finally in game.

Since the patch is out today, I won't bother posting possible bugs from yesterday. I'll download the patch and see what's up.

*EDIT* I guess they did break mouse look, can't turn left or right, but I can look up and down with the mouse. I'm tempted to delete the settings folder, but I have everything set up as I prefer, so I may just wait for them to patch the mouse issue.

After update 2 I was streaming how I was getting pissed off with official servers and I was gonna play the bots in the main mode (offline), and had 20k score with a 6k XP and the capped message.
Somewhere on reddit someone made a graph showing which mode has what capped/etc but I can no longer find it.

Update 3 is 5-6 gigs (cant remember exact size), but just deleted my settings folder and gonna give it a try.

The Little Bird still has the sound bug with it's cannons (and now will continue when switching to secondary weapons, and THEN overlap a 2nd time when using the primary weapons).
Played 1 map against the bots, and raked up 30k+ score (including 10k first match of the day). Will give it another shot after a nice nap.

Ok so the XP works as a 1:1 your score at the end of the round is 10320 so you should get 10320, after X amount of time ya get less then half of that from the Cap. Also it stops you from being able to unlock weapons/attachments/badges etc. And I could see it as no problem with custom portal games ONLY. But it now effects everything, even playing solo against the bots. Also shouldn't be effecting games with DICE rulesets under Portal but they went full cap across the board and it sucks MAJOR ass.

It doesn't stop you from making progress on weapon unlocks, attachments, levels, or costumes. Like I said, it still works fine with Breakthrough and Conquest; I only play bots, and I'm level 31 or 32 with almost all the attachments unlocked for the weapons I have access to at that level and multiple skins unlocked on the operator that I play. Vehicles have been unlocking new gear at a regular pace based on kill count in that vehicle as well. They had it disabled with bots in those modes for a few days at launch, but it's been re-enabled and working fine for around a week now. I still get "xp is capped" at the end of every match, but I get XP for everything I did in the match and still get the daily bonus as well and can still make progress.

/edit: Ribbons work after the update now, too.

...although they broke mouse look with the patch, and you have to manually delete the settings folder under \\Documents\Battlefield 2042 to fix it...just unbelievable.

Yeah, I don't know what the fuck they are thinking with caps and other limitations in single player vs bots. I think there is also a cap vs kills for unlocks? Ridiculous, considering a lot of the upper unlocks are 800+ kills for a given weapon or vehicle. Hopefully they sort it out after they cut down on the straight XP farming servers in Portal, if that's what's bugging them.

The limits are only in Portal as far as I know, unlocks vs. bots have been re-enabled and working fine for about a week or so in normal Breakthrough and Conquest. I still get "XP is capped" after every match, but I've been gaining XP just fine along the way and have been unlocking weapons, upgrades, and even skins with kills as they should be.

Biggest problem is the XP Cap. You can't play with Bots or in Portal without a cap, even on servers with official rulesets.

I'll revisit this game in 6 months.
