1.6 server

I have a question about hosting a 1.6 server. Do clients that have v1.61/1.612 installed need the Patchswitcher to join the 1.6 server? How does it all work?

Re: 1.6 server

free from memory then, the 1.6 patch was a big update and had new maps and stuff like punkbuster in it, then some guy (luigi aremma?) found a serious (crash?) bug so they corrected that (in the .exe only?) so the rest of the files should be the same as before that. Meaning that it works to use the 1.6 in a never server if the server itself allows it.

This is to my understanding pretty much just some setting in the server code, the ax server allows for the 1.6 version as the owner has the knowhow to fix  bugs himself.

ive been thinking about the idea to try and make a "earlier version" for a while, that feeling that was in the 1.4 version of the game was pretty neat.

Re: 1.6 server

Hmm I just thought about the server crash exploits, the Windows/Linux 1.6 Server Executables are not patched to prevent these, are they. Damn.

Re: 1.6 server

one way around the crash problem i think could be using a passworded server, that would suck a bit ofcourse, but you would propably only get some few players that really is interested in the game anyway.

there is a way to  use keyhashes as a whitelist, so could be one way to do it.

Re: 1.6 server

Thanks for the input.

The servers would be passworded anyway, so that's not a problem I guess. How would you qualify the infantry hit registration in v1.6 compared to v1.61? In your other post you said that you could hit soldiers running with a sniper rifle in v1.4 pretty easily.

Re: 1.6 server

The last time ive played v1.4 was just a quicktest while i installed the game (i have v1 on cd and had to patch it one patch after the other) so i started a coop game and for some reason used sniper kit (witch i normally suck with) and all of a sudden it was one-shoot - one-kill situation. I didnt think much of that just then, but rather after i had fully updated everything and sniping was way harder again. I dont know what changed, but something was done to the game between patches. An old friend once said that they had nerfed the BAR in some patch "it used to be much more effective" or something like that, but i guess it could be an overall situation depending what class one is used to play as.

edit: found a list of all different patches to the game. i haved toyed with the idea of setting up a server with an earlier version just for curiosity, but would need to know if there is any interest from other players. i doubt there is.

Great link. It's interesting to see what changes were made throughout the years. Does anyone know the biggest differences between 1.6 and 1.61?
