So fast even I didn't see it coming until the last minute. GJ fixing those bugs with superspeed while I was away!
...PC vs Mac is like AK47 vs M4A1...
<DutchFlame`> i once heard running runescape in the background gave you a speedboost
<Mr> yes, it allocates more electrons, so there are more electrons available for Soldat -> they are streched less and it is more fluent

Just noticed that i forget to include up to date update.sh and update.txt files

here the original content:

update.sh
Quote
#!/bin/bash

PATCH_DIR=$(cd $(dirname "$0");pwd)
if [ $# -eq 0 ]; then
        TARGET_DIR="$PATCH_DIR"
elif [ $# -eq 1 ]; then
        TARGET_DIR=$(cd "$1";pwd)
else
        echo "Usage: ./update.sh soldatserver_dir"
        echo "If you want to patch multiple servers at the same time you can use the *nix utility find:"
        echo "Example: find server* -maxdepth 0 -exec ./update.sh \"{}\" \\;"
        exit
fi

if [ ! -d "$TARGET_DIR" ]; then
        echo "Usage: ./update.sh soldatserver_dir"
        exit
fi

if [ ! -f "$TARGET_DIR/soldat.ini" ]; then
        echo "Usage: ./update.sh soldatserver_dir"
        exit
fi

echo "Patching server: $TARGET_DIR"

cd $TARGET_DIR

if [ "$PATCH_DIR" != "$TARGET_DIR" ]; then
        cp -r $PATCH_DIR/* .
fi

rm -rf ./update.txt ./update.sh ./soldatserver.exe ./soldatserver_lazarus.exe ./soldatserver_delphi.exe ./soldatserver_legacy.exe ./soldatserver_lazarus ./soldatserver_delphi
if [ -f "./soldatserver" ]; then
        chmod +x ./soldatserver
fi
if [ -f "./soldatserver_legacy" ]; then
        chmod +x ./soldatserver_legacy
fi

if [ -f "./soldatserver_osx" ]; then
        chmod +x ./soldatserver_osx
fi

sed -i "/PacketRate_Adjusting=.*/d" "$TARGET_DIR/soldat.ini"

echo "Patched!"

update.txt
Quote
How to update the server:

If you're on *nix run the update.sh script in the patch directory to automatically patch the server.
To manually update the patch, do the following steps:

1) Add all the files (overwrite existing files) from the patch, except for update.txt and soldat.ini
2) Remove following entries in your existing soldat.ini:
     PacketRate_Adjusting=1
3) chmod +x the soldatserver* files

Done!

Nice job guys. Does this make 1.6.4 the shortest release ever?
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

Great version!

Played a gather and it feels definitely better than 1.6.4. I just think Steyr is still too opped :(
Overall, great work! :D

Alright this is good again, can still tie even if you're 40-50 kills behind.

Why do you get bink from teammates when using rett?
You don't. The green dot on the upper right on my screen is atleast not affected.
