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

Checked the ET servers lately? There was a time when there were a lot of servers packed with players (I mean c'mon, it's a free game). Then PB updated their client and a lot of Nvidia owners suddenly couldn't run the game anymore. Overnight it was like ET lost a huge chunk of it's playerbase. Same thing happened to Raven Shield during it's PB client update.

Moreover PB doesn't keep you from cheating, it just stops the most obvious and easy to pull off game hacks. The cheats that are truly good are circulated among a quiet few players and they work fine regardless of whether PB is running on the server or not. Evenbalance tries to spin it like there is no cheat they can't detect and they're delusional. Patching the game is a much better way to derail cheaters and DICE has been doing that fantasticly so what's the need for PB?

I don't have an Nvidia card but I know a lot of players do and I would hate to log on to BF1942 one day and have to work to find a decent server with enough people for the game to be fun. When it shafts 1/2 your players it's not a good thing.
