CHANGED:

- Disabled ex_indoor_large "1" in mapcontrol.cfg.

will move old weapon on back after picking up a weapon.

(you can have fixed nades at spawn, but rank changes are always linked to rank settings).

FIXED:

- Unability to chat while on parachute (spawn and gunship eject).

- Hopefully fixed range finder runtime errors.

- Ghost nades after defusing tripwire. Enemy nades are converted to own type.
- Unable to set trip when holding only one enemy frag and smoke nade(s).
- Ingame rcon fast restart after switching game type will mess up server
Now code will force game type back to original value when doing a fast restart.
- Rank demotion not taking away nades (code will take away all nades if it has to).
- Ingame rcon weapon settings not working.
- DOM and ONS can cause lag on some maps (caused by "spawn away from flags" loop).
- Falling from gunship when boarding (pressing USE) in range of ammo crate.
- Loadout update did not include weapon in virtual slot.
- Error in map rotation server messages code when playing a map that is not in rotation.
- Runtime errors when player connected just before the statsboard came up.
- Change in team_russiangerman.menu to disable russian selection when forcing auto-assign.

Unlinked from bomb(site) when aborting landmine plant, allowing him to move the bomb.
- CTFB defend and assist points fixed (set scr_ctfb_flagprotectiondistance "0" to disable).

REMOVED:

- Removed scr_objectiveicon from CTFB (now reads ex_objindicator only).
- Removed maps\mp\gametypes\_hud_libteamscore.gsc (obsolete).
- Removed extreme\_ex_scopedon.gsc. This been been moved into _ex_main.gsc.
- Clan logo TEXT (mylogo system) removed due to HUD element limit (miscfeatures.cfg).
WARNING: mylogo variables have been renamed for clarity!
- HITMAN: removed materials hud@headiconagnt.tga, hud@headiconcmmd.tga, hud@headiconguad.tga
and images headiconagnt.iwi, headiconcmmd.iwi and headiconguad.iwi (replaced by new icons).

RELEASE NOTES:

- Do NOT copy over scripts or configuration files from older versions!
- Do NOT enable features in the configuration files that require an OPTIONAL MOD before you have integrated and uploaded the optional add-on!
Instructions on how to enable the optional mods are included in the archive.
- If you put more than 64 maps on the server (use the map rotation stacker feature for that), the map name will not display right. It will display the long name, like mp_gob_rats instead of Gob Rats. There is an arena file limit in the game that we have no control over. The server will work though.
- The helicopter is not perfect. Where recent COD games have built-in chopper physics and map supported heli paths, we have to figure it all out in a script. Not perfect, but quite deadly anyway.
- If you have a custom Main Menu (ui_mp\main.menu) you want to reapply together with the new font, please make the following changes to it:
1. Remove all #define statements at the top
2. Change: boldFont "fonts/boldFont" 30 into boldFont "fonts/extraBigFont" 40

Hope you all enjoy it!
