9:35 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
Aspyr Media's Amy Torres wrote to inform us that they have released a beta patch for Return to Castle Wolfenstein. According to Torres, no bugs have beeen encountered in the 1.41 patch during internal testing, but they would like to hold a public beta test before declaring the patch final.
The long awaited patch address multiplayer lag issues, but also includes various fixes and new features from version 1.4. For a full list of changes, view the readme at Activision's site, which is linked below.
[Update]: It seems a number of users had trouble with the initial rush of downloads, so make sure your download isn't corrupt before attempting to install. Watch for mirrors to be posted later today.
Some users also seem to be reporting trouble connecting to Punkbuster-enabled servers still. For those people, it seems Aspyr's previous advice regarding 1.33 servers may help. Downloading the PC 1.41 update and extracting its mp_bin.pk3 file may let you connect. A link has been added to below to the PC file. Make sure you open up the exe file from within Stuffit Expander, as double clicking on it likely won't work.
Finally, if you find even replacing the mp_bin.pk3 files still results in errors when connecting to servers, another user has put together a fix which includes a few other files from the PC version as well. To install it, simply unzip into your Wolfenstein's "main" directory.
We'll talk with Aspyr about these issues and attempt to get another version from them as soon as possible.
