Subject: Upcoming Battlefield 1942 Patch

Looks as if there's another patch in the pipeline for Battlefield 1942 according to this update over at the the official Battlefield 1942 site. The upcoming 1.4 patch looks largely like an update to prevent cheating and will also disable the ability for gamers to use client-side mods.

Fixes and Features in 1.4 include:

Tank Repair exploit - tanks will no longer be able to repair in the airplane hanger.
Improved voting GUI - the voting interface has been improved.
Cheats - we will be implementing features which address many of the cheats currently being seen in BF1942 games.
Linux Server.
Two new guns being added: The DP 1928 - Japanese Assault rifle and the Type 99 - Russian Assault rifle.
I imagine the client-side mod kill will anger some gamers, but overall, it'll at least help provide a less Cheaterstrike type gaming environment.
