EXPANSION OF RANKS
- Ranks have now been expanded to allow for players to rank up to General


NEW FEATURE
VISIBLE UAV
- The UAV that is placed by Commanders will now include a visual element. An actual UAV will appear within the
UAV detection radius and circle the area. Players will be able to shoot it down, bringing the UAV detection to a premature end.
The Commander will be able to continue placing UAVs once the timer resets, as per current design.


KNOWN ISSUE
ATI CROSSFIRE CARDS
- Crossfire cards with 256 Megs of memory, running in CrossFire mode will run out of memory at very high resolution settings.
On very high resolutions, such as 1920x1440 with 6x antialiasing. In CrossFire mode the ATI drivers are more restrictive
about where resources are allocated, and as a result run out of memory sooner than with a single board. This running out of memory causes
the device context creation to fail. The result is that the game just sits in a loop with a black screen. If you experience a context creation failure
change your resolution to a lower setting (e.g. 1024x768 or even lower).

Some very much needed changes here. No more bunny hop shooting or "dolphin" diving, nade launcher has a minimum distance for it to work, etc.

Can't wait to hear the whining that comes from the 12 yr old l337 dudes.
