Dear BattleGroup42 fans,
since the release of RC4 in December 2018, we’ve received quite a lot of bug reports from our players and team members. All of the reported bugs up to 27th of February 2019 have been fixed. The reworked damage system introduced in RC4 still needs some fine tuning, and we’re still working on that.
You can find the patch files: here

I've been maintaining a set of Linux dedicated server fixes for a while, but I'm opening it up to a wider audience

This includes a number of patches that have been floating around as well as a number of new fixes. The important gameplay changes are:

* Weapon deviation is set to max when selecting a weapon: Weapon deviation does not change for weapons that are not selected. Some players take advantage of this by keeping their weapon stowed while moving and then selecting it right before firing.

* Player names are sanitized: No more player names with special characters, leading/trailing spaces, or names shorter than 3 letters.

* Assault maps now award victory to the defending team if they survive until end of round (Wake, Omaha, etc). This is what was originally intended, but due to a typo never took effect.

* Death bubble now gives damage to players rather than their vehicle. This prevents the death bubble zombie wreckage problem.
