  • So, played the patched version: I CAN'T BELIEVE 'Unmount MG' IS STILL LOCKED TO 'E'. They fixed the binds for the hangglider, they fixed the SP->MP binds, but Unmount is still not bindable or equal to Mount. Nor did they implement toggling the Headlights, though there's a key, right there, bound to it.
    Although new cool stuff today were:
    1> temporary sunblindness out on the sand near the Oasis.
    2> repairing my truck, another truck is rolling at me, firing; I quickly run up a rock mound, not wanting to go splat when struck by a truck, to see another truck coming at an angle to the first. They would meet right where I'm standing...If I weren't on this rock, and didn't have an M-79 (it was like "Pod Intersection in 0:03) !BLOOP! The explosion flips the two vehicles across each others path.
    3> Right before I quit for the night, I was on foot and dropped by a safehouse to grab a new truck. I ran past a checkpoint and they must've seen me, because I heard an engine start. I hop up in the truck at the safehouse and wait for the enemy to show. When they do, and I start firing, I suddenly realize this is not my beautiful M-249! This is my beautiful Browning M-2 Air-Cooled .50 HMG! So I saved it there.

    tl;dr unmount bind still broken; sandglare, cars flipping, 50cal MG.
