BF1942 Patch Update

The Battlefield 1942 Website (thanks Frans) has word on the upcoming version 1.6 patch. Here's the update. which is accompanied by screenshots of the two new maps:
Attention Soldiers! We're going to talk about a couple of things in todays update. First the upcoming 1.6 patch and then the Battlefield 1942 Map Making Contest. So without further ado...

1.6 Update Battlefield Command has busted butts to get the 1.6 patch done as quickly as possible. Our sincere hope was to release it before the December holidays. Unfortunately, our commitment to releasing clean patches means that we cannot release the patch in its current state. We still need some time to clear up a few glitches. So, you at least have something to look forward to in January when you've finished playing with all the toys and goodies you've received over the holidays!

Here's a short-list of some of the features you can look forward to:

  1. Punkbuster support
  2. New in-game GUI for map and kick-voting
  3. New game server allows hosting of different mods, maps and modes in the same server rotation
  4. Chat lag fixed
  5. Russian Ilyyushin IL-2 added to Kursk and Kharkov
  6. New Battlefield 1942 map
  7. New Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII map

Uh, yeah, actually, it IS lag that causes you to have to lead people, vehicles, and planes. Before you go off, yeah, I know it makes sense to have to lead targets to hit them, and I'm used to that. There may be some built-in "travel time" for bullets and other projectiles, but I've hosed down enough planes with pieces flying off with no actual damage inflicted and nailed so many vehicles in the ass or sides with antitank weapons but watched them drive away unscathed to know that there ARE network issues on top of the so-called "travel time" and that these network issues are so inherent to the engine design that they're not gonna change. I'm hoping they do something with the network code in BF: Vietnam but I'm not holding my breath.
