Black Bag Ops has released their newest version of the popular server manager for BF1942 and BFV. Most of the major changes involve the Vietnam version, but the 1942 has recieved a few bug fixes as well. Here's the update,
I've posted BxSM beta 4g on the download pages. The beta 4g release includes the new BBO Custom Combat Editor (CCED) utility. CCED was written in C++ by a newcomer to the programming team here at BBO, Brent Stolle. You can find out more about Brent here. Brent has generously donated his time to produce and maintain this utility for the BFV community as part of the BBO stable of utilities. Please send your feedback and suggestions regarding CCED to brent AT blackbagops DOT com. The beta 4g change-list includes; Added support for editing BFV server CustomCombat settings via CCED Added new "User can edit CustomCombat settings" permission to BVSM(D) Added "Edit CustomCombat settings" command to BVxM Settings button-menu Made auto-kick-language case INsensitive Made auto-kick-language warn 3 times before kicking Made auto-kick-language subject to auto-ban (3 kicks then ban) Added public !nextmap in-game admin command to show next map BxSMD will now remember the idle map setting between runs Fixed bug requiring "User can issue console commands" for kick/ban in BVSM Fixed bug causing in-game admin commands to fail with colon in player name Fixed infrequent crashbug in BxRM when logging player chat See the BxSM readme.txt file for instructions on how to use CCED with BVxM to edit the server's CustomCombat settings. There is additional information in the CCED readme.txt file in the distribution ZIP archive on the BF Vietnam download page. Special thanks to Jay Samford from WWS clan and Mario Massa from SAS clan for their assistance in testing and trouble-shooting beta 4g.
