'Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield' - Patch Issues & Temp Solution

by Rainier on June 17, 2003 @ 5:12 p.m. PDT | Filed under News

Noticed on BluesNews that a post on Raven Shield Platoon describes a problem they've found with the newly released v1.3 patch for Raven Shield, as well as the workaround that will at least allow you to get out without rebooting should it happen to you. Here's the deal: The 1.3 patch has an error that causes servers to crash on the "deploying countdown". The crash has you (and everyone else in the server) sitting in the game staring at the countdown stuck on 1. This happens at random times. The only way to exit is to open console and type in either disconnect or quit.
