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

Odd then that CoD was developed by the same developers that did MOH:AA where cheating was also rampant (and got worse when EA started doing the expansions in house).

You don't need cheats to ruin someone's game. You just need to grief your teammates. In my opinion it's a lot worse being cut down by a teammate and having them repeatedly log back into the server after they've been kicked, than it is to have someone playing with a wall hack (which can be done with certain video drivers and MSN Messenger in any OpenGL game, btw, PB or no PB). There is even a hack that eliminated the effects of the Gas grenades and flashbangs in Raven Shield that PB still hasn't caught (yet the company reps is the forums will spew "there is no hack we can't catch"). I'll reiterate, PB stops retards from "cheating" but it doesn't do much to stop the dedicated cheater/hacker. All it's gonna do is boot all the Nvidia users from the BF1942. Ironic considering that EA is the "Way It's Meant To Be Played" ass kissing publisher.
