R8サーバーパッチ

R8サーバーパッチがリリースされています。

Change list:
* Crashfixes
* RCON bugfixes; banList.add can now ban on player name
* Fixes for team & squad handling, both during and between rounds
* Server’s online state is displayed in the “GameId:” field in the server window (see server provider documentation)

各サーバーともアップデートされてると思います。プレイヤー的には「Fixes for team & squad handling」がポイントでしょうか。果たして、分隊からハブられるバグが治ってるんでしょうか。
一点、i3D.net のサーバーのラグ問題で、R8 で何か改善してるのかどうかを BFJC 02 サーバーにて検証中です。こちらはそろそろ「お金返してっ!」って言おうかなと思ってますが、もうしばらく付き合って見ることにします。

R7サーバーパッチ

R7サーバーパッチが、DICE/EAよりリリースされています。
サーバーのラグが問題になっていますが、R7パッチには、この問題への対策が含まれているようです。以下原文ママですが転載。

Changelog for R7:
– Server improvements that should decrease rubberbanding
– TDM/SQDM spawn point fix
– 2 crash fixes in end of round
– Fix for connection problem when joining password protected servers
– Removed ‘vars.allUnlocksUnlocked’ once ranked server settings are enforced, this may come back in some form.

BFJCではサーバー業者とラグの問題について連絡を取り合って解決に努めています。
ラグを経験したら、フォーラムまで報告いただけると幸いです。
