View Full Version : Should I patch to 4.09b??

06-09-2008, 12:56 PM
I'm on 4.08m with 1946 right now.

Should I patch to the 4.09 beta? Does it tend to cause any problems? Other than the new maps, what else does it give you?

And any idea when the full patch will be done?

"Should I patch to the 4.09 beta?"
Most online servers are only using 4.08-

"Does it tend to cause any problems?"
No problems here as far as i can tell-

"Other than the new maps, what else does it give you?"
Besides the maps, i dunno, haven't noticed-

This is what you get when you install V4.09 bta

* New maps:
Iasi (online)
Odessa (online)
Slovakia (online)

* Increased buffer size for stationary objects (buildings etc.)
to prevent freezes under some circumstances.

* New objects for FMB

* Colors of water corrected for Water=2,3,4 modes.
Now when looking down it is no more black/dark blue.

* Optimized Shaders for Nvidia 8X00 series video cards.

* Added a new mode for increased visibility distance.
Visibility increased from 36 km to 72km
under "Clear" and "Good" weather conditions.

*New default skins pack

You will have access to the content listed above, plus you will have access to more servers on HL. You can use my switcher to change back and forth between versions with the click of a mouse...yes, it's that easy.

Which processor are you running?

First you install the 4.09b patch
Then the 4.09b skins patch
Then the switcher

I have a 2.4Ghz Core Duo and an 8600GT card.

Also I don't play online at all.

I guess I'll patch up to 4.09b then.

Good idea! I wanted to wait for the final V4.09 patch but after seeing these vids I changed my mind and installed the bta version.
And I still don't regret I did!
