GlobalOps Patch - Mess Cleared Up

by Rainier on March 21, 2002 @ 10:26 a.m. PST | Filed under News

Barking Dog's Dan McBride hit the offical Global Operations forums to clear up some of the rumours spread around about GO Patches. It appears that there has been a little misinformation spread around here lately- for that you get a LAW to the groin revoemag!! We are indeed working on a patch for the public beta, but our main priority has been and will be to make sure that those who purchase the game are happy, so most of our effort has been dedicated to making sure that the retail version is as solid as possible. We have already fixed the lockups that some users were experiencing and have improved many other issues that you have been talking about here (yes, we DO read these forums!!). We are working hard on optimizing the server performance, but it is unlikely that these changes will make it into a public beta patch in the short term. The Linux server is compiled and running and we have had a few small tests with it. However it would be doing a disservice to everyone to release it at this point- it needs lots of testing still.
