I totally appreciate your condescending attitude, but I'm afraid it's you who doesn't understand. Of course, it's understandable since the update wasn't crystal clear.
According to EA's definition Desert Combat is not a client-side mod, DC is already, in its current state a "full server-side mod".
This is a bit of a weird nomenclature, I'd call DC a client/server mod, which are okay with the new patch. The patch only affects pure client mods, that is mods that are not mirrored on the server side. So custom skins, blood patches will be rendered impossible.
That's exactly what I thought when reading the news message, but Sarcasmo seemed so sure I searched around the BF1942 forums, and found a thread confirming this:http://forums.bf42.com/showthread.php?threadid=24398
The thread includes posts by Desert Combat team members who have spoken to the developers.
Edit: Well it turns out I took so long to research and write my post that Sarcasmo found his own error. Apologies.This comment was edited on Apr 19, 16:42.
