BF3 patch fixes listed

Post by richdoc on Fri Dec 02, 2011 8:19 am

I saw this today, some good stuff in here...and something about a tower falling over too as per Lumpys other post....nice. This is for PS3 with XBOX to follow.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-11-30-battlefield-3-ps3-patch-release-notes

The PS3 patch brings fixes, updates and new features. The patch notes follow - they're apparently similar to changes made recently on PC.
General fixes

All occupied Squads will now show up colored blue on the Squad selection screen

Fix for missing input restriction during intro movie, causing players to potentially fall and die while
watching movie if moving controller (or having a controller with a bad stick zone)

the carrier ship after first base is taken and being able to enter the AA gun

Fixed a problem with revived players not being able to get suppressed

Fixed a problem where you could get stuck in the co-op menu when attempting to join the
session twice

waiting to spawn (e.g. if your teammate dies right before you are about to spawn)

Damage from bullets will now continue to cause damage even after the firing user is dead

Fixed several client crashes

Fixed a problem where players could get stuck in the join queue

anyone in its falling path

being able to enter it again, thus blocking the mission

Fixed a problem where a user can become invulnerable after being resurrected

Fixed a problem with the M60 reload sound

circumstances in single player

Fixed a problem where the enemy would not be able to get a road kill on a user that was using
the SOFLAM
