    Default Patch 2 official content!

    Just this min got a email from epic..... it reads

    We are currently testing this patch internally. If all goes well, we’ll be releasing a public beta to this list in a few days. Here is the current change list:



    Gameplay:

    - Increased UTGame MaxPlayersAllowed to 64.

    - Fixed leviathan turret instant refire exploit.

    - Fixed errant lock on warnings when no longer in vehicle.

    - Fixed first person weapons in demo playback.

    - Fixed translocator telefrag victim message.

    - Fixed encouragement sounds not being randomly picked by bots.

    - Implemented viewobjective spectating system for Warfare.

    - Fixed berserk held by driver applying to all vehicle turrets.

    - Only force low gore on German versions that were low gore only before being patched.



    User Interface:

    - Clicking on the settings tab goes to directly to the full settings menu.

    - Added VOIP speaker portraits to HUD.

    - Fixed character portraits sometimes not showing up on HUD or not staying up long enough.

    - The Host server menus will no longer disable internet options if CheckNatTypeDisplayError returns true. It's just a warning now.

    - Fixed the CD key always prompting when the user has no network card

    - Added support for commandline log in -login=xxx -password=xxx. This also allows Gamespy comrade and other external applications to be used to launch network clients.

    - Added UI option to hide objective paths (the white arrows).

    - Added UI option to enable joystick support.

    - Added JOIN to midgame menu when spectating.

    - Added cancel button to "logging in" message box.

    - Added support for auto-updating UI with new options.

    - Improved language support for French, Spanish, Italian, and German.

    - Joystick key bindings in UI display properly.

    - Added game and UI support for customizing crosshair scaling.

    - Added "Add Favorite" button to Server Browser server list tab.

    - Fixed favorites Tab Page server details not updating.

    - Improvements to voice menu. Added "status" section.

    - Leave "Disconnect" and "Exit Game" on the mid game menu when seamlessly travelling so that players have a way to abort lengthy downloads

    - Show "Change Team" button before the match has started.

    - Added support for localized "single score needed" string.

    - Tweaked some HUD message font sizes.

    - Favorites/History lists list servers that are currently offline.

    - Favorites/History lists don't stop working as the number of servers in them crosses max threshold for GS query.



    Networking:

    - Added support for autodownloading packages while in gameplay or while travelling.

    - Auto team re-balancing before map transition if bPlayersBalanceTeams is set.

    - Fixed dedicated server memory leaks.

    - Force client state synchronization when in spectating state. Fixes sporadic issues with players not being able to join games.

    - Fixed sounds not being heard correctly by clients if the sound location is the Actor's location and the Actor is not relevant to that client.

    - Fixed spectators being unable to move after a level transition.

    - Fixed track turrets being in the wrong position on clients in some cases after being destroyed.

    - ConnectionTimeout and InitialConnectTimeOut now both 60.0. Addresses both clients failing connection because they take too long to load a level, and initial connections staying open too long.

    - Fixed HTTP download compression.

    - Fixed a bug where download during seamless travel would break because the downloader was keeping a pointer into the package map's list, which is unsafe while the game is in progress because that list could have more items added to it (and thus the memory rearranged) at any time

    - Fixed a bug where in rare cases packages would get downloaded twice.

    - Fixed spectators able to enter as extra players in Duel.

    - Fixed issue where CTF, vCTF, and WAR maps are listed in the server browers when searching for a DM game when server changed gametypes.

    - Fixed bots not replicating their view pitch, so their animation looks better in net games.

    - Strip OwningPlayerName= from the URL, as this is determined elsewhere and was breaking dedicated internet servers launched from the UI.



    Server administration:

    - TCPLink and Webadmin functionality implemented.

    - Banning is now based on CD key hash, so players can’t circumvent bans by creating a new profile.

    - Fixed being unable to kickban players with | in their names.

    - Added versioning information to the game settings

    - Dedicated servers don't require DirectX shader model 2.0

    - Fixed AdminForceTextMute and AdminForceTextUnmute.

    - Restored the compress and decompress commandlets.

    - Fixed AdminCmdOk() function not working properly if you were the listen server.

    - Banned IDs readability improved.

    - Added MaxClientTravelTime config option to GameInfo. If set, clients are kicked if they take longer than this many seconds to travel between maps.



    Mod support:

    - Added ScriptedTexture, a type of render to texture that gives Canvas access to script/C++ for rendering custom overlays.

    - Added a version of DrawTile() to Canvas that takes a Texture instead of Texture2D so render to texture stuff like ScriptedTextures can more easily be used.

    - Added Timestamp function to UObject, returns a string in the format YYYY/MM/DD - HH:MM:SS

    - Weapons now take roll from player viewrotation.

    - Fixed custom character DLC not applying until the next time the game is run because the default object was not updated after combining the .ini files.

    - Added a ModFamilies array to UTCustomChar_Data to allow mod authors to add families to the list.

    - Fixed Change Node Status Kismet action not working on fully constructed powernodes.



    Map specific:

    - Fixed DM-Deck get out of world exploit

    - Fixed DM-Gateway portals sometimes sending you back to your starting point.



    AI improvements:

    - New orb carrier strategy AI.

    - Improved bot hoverboard use.

    - Reduced bot orb spawner camping.

    - Fixed bots stuck on orb spawner unable to grab flag.

    - Low skill bots use artillery properly.

    - Tweaked shooting at nodes vs shooting at enemies.

    - No human bonus to threat value.

    - Improved threat picking AI, taking into account effectiveness of bot's weapon.

    - Tweaked bot AI for link gun, flak cannon, redeemer, and AVRiL.

    - Bots tend to stay on same enemy more, and focus on key vehicles more.

    - Tweaked campaign auto skill adjust.

    - Possible safe fix for bot navigation issues with staticmeshcollections on console. Also a performance improvement on PC and console.

    - Tweaked rules for whether to attack node or enemy first.

    - Improved bot AI for defending nodes with an orb.

    - Fixed pathing issues that were causing bots to get stuck in some places. When a move fails, force a route refresh. Add cost to reachspecs when bot fails repeatedly.

    - Improved AI code for adjusting around obstacles. If adjust left and right fail, try moving to center of reachspec.

    - If previous move failed, don't allow "advanced tactics" (serpentine, etc.) for next move.

    - Added FailedMoveTarget and MoveFailureCount to controller to track movement failures.

    - Added bForceNoDetours to UTBot. Don't allow detours when bot is approaching a neutral node (more important to touch node first).

    - Fixed bots thinking they've reach the orb spawner without quite getting there and touching the orb.

    - Fixed cases where bots could get stuck failing to translocate over and over - bots know to give up now.

    - Adjusted bot reaction time to seeing new enemies.

    - Improved bot AI for dealing with lifts and hoverboards.

    - Bots taunt after winning a match.

    I really, really hope, that "Fixed first person weapons in demo playback" covers the actual demo playback of online client-side demos :/

    Wow. This feels like Christmas.

    Auto Team Balance + improved bots.... I can't ****ing wait.

    Just give us a MOTION BLUR option, Epic, and all of my wishes are basically met =)

    Oh, and the weapon bar only showing up when in use like in the demo.

    Some of these changes are pretty big, and pretty awesome. Maybe this is also going to be the first ps3 patch? Or at least, steps in the direction towards it...

    Thumbs up

    Excellent changes all round. Plenty of welcome new improvements to the interface, handy network and server tweaks, and gradually giving the bots a much-needed re-education.

    "- Fixed sounds not being heard correctly by clients if the sound location is the Actor's location and the Actor is not relevant to that client."

    Is this the "all sounds emanate from the amp" bug? Please say yes...

    I know it's just the first, very early beta of Patch 2, but can we expect any performance boost or fixed performance issue with this patch ???

    Awesome patch, 4 picky things though.

    -Still no way to decide from Player UI prefered team. (always red by default)
    -Still no bot customization.
    -Still no Stinger primary fire damage reduction.
    -Still no fix for UED constantly using 40 % out of a Q6600.

    And on another note, taunting bots are entirely useless. Keep it up Epic.

    Looks good! I like the Joystick interface back and hopefully configureable and also the compression redirect!

    webadmin is nice but i still dont see this as being enough. things like vehicle and player sounds should have been fixed as well as vehicle tweaks like adding a 3rd person zoom and a 1st person pov. oh and nerfing the orb some would have been nice, like maying not having it respawn instantly

    Well at least it's a patch, but apart from webadmin & favs might actually work, I don't think it's anything to write home about. :|

    Nice to see the white arrows gone,but there`s still a lot that needs to be looked at.
    But overall some good fixes.
    When you kill 6 people in Unreal Tournament 3 it's "Monster kill", In Quake III it's "Excellent", in Counter-Strike Source it's "Kicked by console".
