    Happy days.
    In other news, I don't have stats on any servers. I am a ranked as a private1 with no stats or weapon unlocks. I will update this thread as things get back in order and the update is announced properly (if I am able).

    Hopefully this early data will help the BC2 admins to be on guard for the incoming complaints/changes to the game.

    EDIT: UPDATE 1530EST, STATS ARE BACK UP

    next edit will be the announcement.

    Despite the release of BF3 being around the corner, we haven't forgotten all about Bad Company 2. We have a game update ready for BFBC2 PC, which is coming out this week. It is client R11. The exact build number is 795745.


    What is the patch about?
    Its main purpose is to address stability problems with the game and performance issues.
    It is not intended to address game logic fixes, or to provide new content.


    You are being vague. Exact changelist please!
    • Removed some memory leaks
    • Fixed crashes when the game attempted to render lots of content (high detail, high FOV or multiple-monitor modes); this should particularly help multi-monitor users
    • Chat window no longer causes lag spikes
    • Chat window reworked opacity & visibility-time is controllable through settings in settings.ini
    • Clantag is remembered when using auto-login
    • Banner URLs can be up to 252 characters in length
    • SecuROM wrapper removed from non-Steam version
    • Minor performance enhancements
    • Reduced rubberbanding on >24p servers
    • PrintScreen takes a screenshot, file stored in Documents\BFBC2\Screenshots directory


    How large is the patch?
    It is approximately 2.6GB.


    That's huge man. Given that size, I would expect dinosaur survival mode to be included.
    The patch itself contains all previous patches rolled into one. While it would have been technically possible to create a smaller patch for those who have Client R10 installed already, that would have delayed the release of the patch even further - so we thought it better to release a larger patch now, than a smaller patch sometime in the future.


    Are there any known problems with it?
    If your Windows username contains non-English characters (such as , , etc) then PunkBuster will not activate properly. To work around this, ensure that your Windows username uses only characters from the English character set. In other words, "7-bit ASCII only, please".
    We caught this at the very end of the QA pass, and decided that it was better to deliver the build to the public than to give it another tour through the whole patch generation and QA process.


    How do I get the patch?
    If you have the Steam version, then the Steam client will automatically begin distributing it to you in the wee hours of Wednesday morning... at 4AM UTC, to be precise.

    If you have the non-Steam version, then the auto-updater will suddenly discover the patch around that same time.

    Or - you can find a manual updater for the non-Steam version here. Note that if you install Client R11 too early, you will not see any game servers. If so, just wait till those begin updating as well.
    For those users that are having problem with the game's auto-updater, we recommend trying the manual updater.


    I installed the Client R11 Public Beta patch some time ago, how do I sort out my machine?
    Follow this link to see what you have to do.


    What about game servers?
    These will gradually be updated by the RSP companies, starting at 4AM UTC on Wed Sep 21st as well. New game clients can only see new game servers, and vice versa... so toward the end of the day, most of the servers should be updated and visible in the new game client's server browser.



    Now, pardon me, but there are game servers to distribute...

      DICE has never been efficient about their patch sizes...

        hmm, will this be the patch to induce random stuttering and lag reminiscent of 2142........

          I would say that 2.6GB is nothing really compared to the 8.1GB installation of RO2 followed by the 600MB patch released earlier today.

          How I do miss the old BF2142... :(

              removing securom???? wonder if this will be launchable through origin now?....seems weird to remove that.

                Hmmm... I wouldn't know as I don't have the retail copy, but do you need to have the disc in the drive to play? Removing secure-rom may be a move to make the game play without the disc, as DICE did with BF2 and then 2142.

                  I've never played with the disc and I have a physical copy.

                    its an option at install....you can play without the disk, but they only give you five installs to do that with. I use the disk in drive method myself

                      I don't remember seeing that anywhere. No big deal though, I am only on my 2nd install.

                        I believe they call it "de-authorization" its a little window that pops up at install

                          That's strange, I never noticed lag spikes caused by the chat window.

                            While I appreciate patches (I suffer from crashes/lags when MCOMs are armed/destroyed), why now? How do they manage to allocate resources to anything but BF3 with so much at stake? The whole COD killer statement needs to be backed up next month!

                              I get the same lag as you bleeding and don't know why.. Didn't come with a patch just started all the sudden
