An update to the BF42.com
Forums (thanks Ant) has word that the Battlefield 1942 version 1.5 patch
will not be released this week as was hoped. The update describes how lag
induced by use of the Destroyer's machine gun will be addressed, but chat lag
will not be fixed in this patch. There are also reassurances that the CD
swapping bug will be addressed when the patch finally does come out.
What did they fuck up to introduce this devil-spawned monstrosity of a bug into the game? It was perfectly fine when it came out; someone said something, you saw the message right away. Around 1.2, I think, though, it got screwed, and it's stayed that way for well onto a year now. Just one of the many things about this game's shell design that drive me fucking nuts. Everything that surrounds the actual gameplay would make an average game too frustrating to play; luckily BF1942 is good enough to make putting up with the lack of a proper voting interface, etc. worthwhile.
