Arrow Official 1.3 Beta Patch Thread (released 4/21/05)

That's right, there's a new patch out (and new dedicated server), and it finally uncaps the Framefrate, plus some other nice fixes like the remote administration feature.

For PC: 1.3 beta update

Patch Name: Battlefront_Beta1_3.exe

Platform: PC

Format: CD-ROM NOTE: The patch is a downloadable exe.

Size: 8.95 MB (9,389,691 bytes)

Min. Requirements: N/A

Posted: 04/21/05

Installation: This is a self extracting exe. Double-clicking on this file installs the patch.

Reminder this is a BETA version for Battlefront and may not work on all systems and is for the U.S. version of the game only. Version 1.2 must be installed first in order for this version to be properly installed

This update addresses the following:
-------------------------------------------------------
CHANGES FROM 1.2
-------------------------------------------------------
Multiplayer
Unlocked frame rate
Better tolerance of latency spikes and frame rate spikes
Fixed an end of game hang
Better smoothing of predicted positions and orientations
Allow more maps specified from dedicated server command line
Better Droideka prediction
Added remote admin support for those hosting dedicated servers
Tighter clock synchronization under normal conditions
Fixed joining servers behind most firewalls
Allow more mod maps (was 50, now 512)
Global
Fixed CIS Pilot shooting backwards
NOTE: Users hosting Star Wars Battlefront PC Dedicated Servers will need to download and install the updated version of the PC Dedicated server software for compatibility with the 1.3 version update.


I have yet to try it out online, but it sounds great. Will it be enough to keep this game alive? You decide!

Mods: If you find any other patch threads floating around in here about 1.3, please merge them into this thread, thanks (or if you're not a mod and find one, PM me the URL and I'll do it when I have time)!
