25
DICE's long-awaited Battlefield 2 v1.50 beta patch is now available on FileShack.

Requiring v1.41 to be installed, the incremental update brings the new "Blue Pearl" map to the multiplayer shooter, along with better Vista support, widescreen support, compatibility with Novint's three-dimensional Falcon controller, and more.

    FEATURES
    • Additional support for Windows Vista.
    • Added Highway Tampa as a required map.
    • Added a new map called Operation Blue Pearl.
    • Added support for Widescreen resolutions
    • Added support for the Novint Falcon controller - www.novint.com
    GAMEPLAY TWEAKS
    • Changes made to both the J10 and F35B to make them more balanced. Please note that the J10 is a superior dogfighter to the F35B and as such these two aircraft will never be equally matched.
    • AA targeting tweaked to make it more effective.
    • Added checks to prevent "runway grieving".
    • Various changes made to prevent cheating.
    • Tweaked the hit detection, hits will be more accurate to the model.
    • Increased the time to go prone after jumping from 0.3 seconds to 0.7 seconds
    • Fixed G36E HUD during sprinting to match other weapons.

Thanks to dpno1 and GrimmyD for the heads up.
