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

Wont read all the long posts, but heres a quick run down of how bf's bullets works..

You shoot. The Bullet travels at a set velocity, the snipers in bf fire at about 2000m/s, normal guns about 800, so shooting distances do make a big impact to the lead time. Then, if the bullet hits a person as reported by another client to the server, then you get the hit. This means if you have a ping of 100ms, then as well as the time the bullet takes to travel you have to add on the ping time. Now, consider you were shooting at a target 200m away with say a garand. You shoot, the bullet takes 250 m/s to travel, then you add the 100 ms ping, there is a 350 ms latency. Thus, you have to predict where the target will be in a third of a second.

Of course, if the server is overloaded wierd things start happening and you would be better off in another server

BTW, go get desert combat 0.6
