Vietcong 2 Revive 1.00
 
 
 
This patch made exclusive and 100% compatible with version 1.00 of VC2 that converts the old master server Gamespy to Openspy as the new server that supports multiplayer mode. this patch offers no advantage over other players but improves the gaming experience and tries to call new and above all old players back to the game
 
 
 
- This patch includes improvements in game performance that prevent crashing.
 
- Solve compatibility problems with some maps where it was not possible to play with version 1.00.
 
- New commands for admins.
 
- CD-key problems fixed.
 
- New anticheat system & antihack (don't use Hradba).
 
- M16, XM177, XM148 Fixed.
 
- Admin command to disable explosive weapons, smoke grenades. Radio (no more airstrikes because of hackers and lag)
 
- srv.cpufriendly fixed (activating this box will reduce CPU usage but will reduce server performance).
 
- Added direct access to the "Mates Arena" server.
 
- etc etc...
 
 
 
 
 
-this is the first patch before 1.20 and if you want to play online its best to use the version 1.00 and also if you want to host your own dedicated server then version 1.00 is what you will need because version 1.20 does not have the openspy patch and openspy is the alternative to gamespy and version 1.00 also adds the widescreen fix
