...what should I know? I see there is a new patch (1.4) available, I take it that installing this will allow me to access most online games and maps. Also what is the deal with aimbots and the like? Last time I stopped playing shortly after they turned up, ruining many games! There is some kind of cheater software thing included in the latest patch from what I read. How does it work? Also I know when I played in the past many people had invented their own maps which were becoming increasingly popular, are these included in the patch and if not do I simply download them from codfiles? Finally, what's the deal with the expansion pack? Will I still need to install the latest patch for CoD first or can I simply install the expansion? Also should I expect to see lots of new updates/patches on codfiles for the new expansion? Many thanks, Neil PS: sorry for all the Qs, not played this game in ages!

I'll tell what i know. 1) yes, the 1.4 patch gives ya ability to play maps. however, you need the maps bocage and neuville because that is what was made a stock map (the patch 1.3 made that possible) and the 1.4 patch includes a weird version of stalingrad. joy! 2) Punkbuster is included in 1.4, and since its add on, there are have been MANY less cheaters. of course, you cant get rid of ALL cheats, but PB is doing the best it can. 3) custom maps have to be downloaded. none popular maps that i know are part of the patch. only bocage, stalingrad, and neuville are maps that are part of patches. 4) Just buying UO, I learned you WILL need the latest patch, 1.4 in order to contune installation. as for updates, UO was just released, so i wouldnt expect much of anything to happen until maybe 2-3 months from now.
