    Upcoming Bad Company 2 Patch, Hooray!!!

    This upcoming Wednesday we'll hopefully see a major patch for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 clients and servers that will address issues such as the server browser, punkbuster, weapon balance and an incredible number of other fixes/tweaks. Full details on the Battlefield Blog, and you can find the changelog below. Dice is also keeping which weapons have been changed a secret for the time being, as they want to gauge player feedback without bias (so get your M60 kills in while you can).

    MP – New Server browser
    MP – Added 15 second spawn timer for Conquest/Rush gamemodes at the start of round to prevent high end machines getting the upper hand before other machines load in.
    MP – Crash fixes relating to ALT+TAB at different times throughout the game
    MP – Hang fix when trying to connect to a full server multiple times
    MP – Deletion of soldiers now possible through the account pages in game
    MP – Removed screen flash during loading
    MP – Added support for colour blind players
    MP – Fixed crashes relating to faulty server banners
    MP – Servers closing during connection no longer cause the client to hang
    MP – Auto team swap reflects correctly in the scoreboard
    MP – Fixed scoreboards when switching teams before spawning
    MP – Rush scoreboards fixed
    MP – Veteran ranks no longer display as “12”
    MP – Isla Innocentes MCOM building fixed where knifing the fence would destroy the building
    MP – Logout/Login button correctly reflects the player status
    MP – Added minimum number of players needed to start a round (you can play and take objectives but you will get no score until 4 or more players join the server)
    MP – Isla Inocentes welcome message on the loading screen now fits the text box area
    MP – Reduced the brightness in Russian vehicles
    MP – Medic gadgets now display correctly if the defib is not unlocked
    MP – Server filter options are remembered
    MP – Punkbuster filter now works as intended
    MP – Scroll bar no longer overlays the Join Server button in the friends list panel
    MP – CANCEL server refresh is implemented
    MP – Zooming in on a friendly using the SAIGA no longer causes the crosshair to disappear
    MP – The chat no longer displays the incorrect player name when appearing
    MP – FoV switches to the default value of 55 when entering vehicles to prevent graphical glitches caused by wider FoV settings. The custom FoV returns when exiting vehicles.
    MP – FoV no longer causes the UAV station to rotate
    MP – Fix to correctly display the unlock progression at the end of round
    MP – Chat functionality will no longer freeze after writing a partial message at the end of round
    MP – One account can no longer connect to the same server multiple times
    MP – Squad Death Match is correctly named during loading
    MP – Server browser no longer gets a bad FPS when filtering Conquest
    MP – Server info banners correctly clear between displays
    MP – Setting display settings which the system hardware can not handle no longer makes the game unusable
    MP – Correct camera collision for vehicles' heavy machine gun
    MP – Game no longer crashes if the player sends a message in the loading screen
    MP – Trying to join a full server no longer causes the game to hang on Please Wait message
    MP – Most server filter options are remembered it doesn't remember the setting in dropdowns
    MP – Kit/gadget loadout saved between sessions
    MP – Window on static guns is now transparent on DirectX 9 systems
    SP – Fixed crashes when patching and trying to resume a campaign (there is now a message that you need to re-play the latest mission from the beginning)
    SP – Fixed a crash after the “Upriver” mission end cinematic
    SP – Supply create at “Resupply at Flynn’s create” objective now supplies weapon ammo
    SP – Hang fix when reaching the objective “Destroy Enemy Zu23”
    SP – Fixed hang after “Storm Cockpit” objective
    SP – Changed melee attack raycast to be detailed
    SP – Game no longer crashes when transitioning between SP_03B to SP_04A when installed in Polish
    SP – Game no longer crashes when killed by the first two enemies in the trenches on SP_01 when installed in Italian
    SP – Updating to R7 will invalidate your single player save game. If you update you will need to play your last mission from the start. If you do not update you will not be able to play multiplayer.


    Punkbuster is required ON for ranked servers
    Ranked servers cannot be started with a password
    Autobalance message goes to text-chat instead of in the middle of the screen
    Added weapon balance tweaks to a number of weapons – we are eagerly awaiting feedback!
    (please don't let this be a repeat of BF2 1.3, please please please please please please please...)

    finally, you can save kit load outs?
    What is wrong is always better than what is right, for its the wrong that forces change.

    Yay!

    Hopefully they fix the M1 not counting kills so I can get my 15k points.

    Hoping M60/Gustav/noob tube all get nerfed.
