# Mouse control didn't work in Special Forces - Fixed
# Falcon controls overwrote on every map load in Special Forces - Fixed
# Highway Tampa crashes at 14% - Fixed

    * Incorrect camo Humvee was being spawned in Taraba Quarry - Fixed
    * UH-60 (Black Hawk) guns had 0.25 splash damage setting, down from 3 making it difficult to hit infantry. - Fixed (this is now set to 1.5 to improve the UH-60's usefulness while not allowing it to dominate)

The fuck? AA is PERFECT as it is, Air to air missiles actually require skill and timing to hit (except against F35 or Mig29) and ground based AA missiles have 100% accuracy if you don't deploy flares...

I'm suspecting this little fix might ruin everything.

What's 'runway grieving'

Something to do with rearming the jets I presume? Someone clear this out for me please!

People blocking the runway so the pilot has no choice but to run them over so that the person getting run over can give them a minus score and a punish.

Probably driving in front of jets force TK'ing and other runway related shenanigans?

Anyway

TotalBF2 should have this on their front page instead of those dumb essays that idiot writes where every single comment is "I agree 100%!".

ok they are pulling this out of their ass.  has there ever been an actual real world dogfight between these two planes?  no.  so how can they state that so confidently?  and don't give me some shit about technical stats, because the only thing that makes any real difference in a dogfight is the pilot, not the plane.

Which implies that they're basing their assumptions on technical specifications. Sounds reasonable to me.

While I can't give an exact date, we are aiming to release our first Beta towards the end of April '09 as long as everything else goes well.

yeah but they are probably wrong.  just because something "should" be able to do something, doesn't mean it will.  i think they should make all the planes about equal, to level the playing field.  too many people think they are awsm because of that j10.

Yay!
Seems they're dropping the DRM, so we don't need the DVD or a mini image anymore.
Very good!

Too bad that there is no mention about official widescreen support. That would be an most useful feature in these days.
(Does BF2141 have widescreen support by the way? I suppose not.)

Also, I'd really appreciate if they finally enabled mouse wheel scrolling on the server lobby menus.

Aaand please, please, please, should there be a v1.51 hotfix shortly after the release of the v1.5 patch, let them release an incremental patch and not make use download half a gigabyte of patch a second time.

No shit.
I´ve been waiting for that to happen since the first patch came out.
I don´t really care about the other stuff, but the mouse wheel scroll would be awesome.

Thanks for the link. I remember reading that but it's been a while so I forgot about it. It looks a bit bland, but if it plays well, I don't mind.

So says the guy who has over 15x airtime versus AA time.   If all they fix is the seat-changing unlock exploit, it would be sweet.  Simply put, if they make the AA just a bit better, it'll keep the noobs off the air vehicles.  End result, the better pilots will get the air vehicles more.
