UPDATE: Hey guys, got an update for you. This patch is huge. As in, it's over a gig right now. We need to take some time to get it to a manageable size, or else its going to be a disaster when everyone tries to download it at once. Therefore, maintenance is being delayed 24 hours until the same time tomorrow.


In the meantime, here are the patch notes:



- New map: HeloDeck!

- Spectator mode added. Click on a game server, then click on the Watch button to spectate!

- Added models for Chance Packs.



- Datanode fusion is now 4x faster!

- Quick Join now prioritizes latency, followed by level restrictions, followed by amount of players in the server.

- Fixed the occasional crash related to chat.

- Fixed cases where the Revival UI was persisting longer than intended.

- Fixed the infinite load screen when failing to load into level because of missing content or content differences from server.

- Fixed the wrong message showing up when being kicked from a server while above the max level requirement.

- Fixed Ambient Occlusion crash when enabling after already in a game.

- Fixed the server crash occurring on all regions intermittently.

- Fixed a startup crash.

- Fixed some special characters not working in Blacklight passwords.






Hey guys, it's server maintenance night! Tonight's maintenance will contain a patch aimed squarely at fixing the terrible lag problems plaguing our servers. There's also some other stuff happening, but that will have to remain a surprise for now.


Downtime will be from 11:00 PM Pacific until 1:00 AM Pacific.


Patch notes are being verified, and will be posted as soon as I get the go-ahead. Have a good one, everyone.

Yeah, not real sure what the real benifit of having EB (or any anti-cheat) if this PFF turns out to be like how server rentals in Tribes Ascend are handled. The PFF games that are rented through the game developer.


There will be many hollow blacklight bans issued by EB, and they will sell those stats to the next developer that stumbles their way. R&R


That said. Downloading how :fighting0050:
