----------------------------------------
    by Odanan  (odanan@ubbi.com.br)
----------------------------------------

- fixed/changed the Flare Gun and the Blowtorch effects and damage.
- now the Blowtorch can be used as a weapon against infantry.
- added the M14A1 automatic rifle for the US Marines (alternative Support class).
- added the M14 in full automatic mode for the US Marines riflemen. In maps before 1969, Marines have the M14 instead the M16. 
- downgraded the fire power and precision of the M14, for balance.
- minor editing on the AK-47 and Type 56 (AKMS) models and icons.
- upgraded the damage of the AT weapons.
- now each kit has its own speed, acording to the weight of the weapons.
- added the Remington 870 shotgun (model and texture by Odanan/Dice).
- added the M2-2 Flamethrower (model and texture from the oficial WW2 mod). It replaces the Mortar in maps with tunnels.  
- testing a new "Artillery Call" for the Recon/Scout. Maybe it is ready for the next version. >:D
- now the Special Forces Grenadier can choose to use the XM-177 without the grenade launcher (and enjoy the zoom).
- linked the two kind of M79 ammo (no more 2 shoots without reloading!).
- edited/fixed some weapon icons.

- improved AI.
- added (finally) the PPSh for the VC (free custom model by Cheetos and texture by Anderson converted to the BF Vietnam and HEAVYLY modified by Odanan). My first steps in editing the animations.
- added the green smoke grenade. 
- added more messages and multi-language support in the lexiconAll.dat.
- added an outstanding new mod launcher made by Sergio Aschar (sergioasch@gmail.com). No more need of .bat files. :)
- FIXED: menu icons of the custom weapons looking bad on the low video configurations.
- FIXED: missing shadows in the custom models.
- in the next update: a realistic review to all vehicles.
- map support:
	.added the names of several custom levels on the lexiconAll.dat.
	.fixed bot names on the custom maps Death River and Last Light.
	.added Coop/Single Player/Bot support by Hamburger Hill for the official level Saigon 1968 (and replaced the US Marines for the US Army).
	.added Coop/Single Player/Bot support by Sgt Pete (notsogentle@hotmail.com) for the oficial level Defense of Con Thien. 
	.added Coop/Single Player/Bot support by William Murphy (fourcentsshy@cajunwolf.com) for the oficial level Operation Ceddar Falls.
	.added Coop/Single Player/Bot support by ? (?) for the oficial level Fall of Saigon. 
- got authorization to include some of the best custom levels in the mod. All of them, except Radio Nguyen, have support for singleplayer/bot.

- the level Cambodian Incursion in the Co-Op (and with more than 1 human player) sometimes is very instable and crashes. Don't know why.
