Product Update - Valve
Modding and map making tools are now available free to everyone that owns Red Orchestra 2! While the limited functionality preview versions of the SDK have been available to select modders for a while, this release now makes the full capabilities of the Mod SDK available to everyone. Other changes in this update include:

General
- Settings menu bug fixes (e.g. Changing Vsync setting now requires a restart)
- Switching roles/teams while in a tank should now work properly
- Melee hit detection improvements. For example, it is now possible to hit a prone player with a bayonet while standing.
- The commanders order marker will now disappear properly when aimed at the sky instead of getting stuck at some location in the map
- Countdown maps will no longer show the improper amount of manpower when a new player joins during a match in progress

Performance / Stability
- Crash fixes based on .dmp files provided by players
- Fixed occasional freezing when spawning
- Updated Punkbuster to address framerate spike
- Overall performance optimization

SDK: How to use redirects to download custom maps (Modders)
- Publish your custom map using the publish button in the editor. This will 'cook' twice because the server needs a different version.
- Grab the files from Published/CookedPCServer/ and give those to your server admins. Remember to clearly label these as server files.
- Grab the files from Published/CookedPC/ and give those to your server admins clearly labelled as client files. You must rename the published map files from .roe to .upk.

SDK: How to use redirects to download custom maps (Server Admins)
- Place the server content into ROGame/CookedPCServer
- Place the client content, removing any sub directories, at an http address. If the client content contains any .roe map they must be renamed to .upk.
- Add the following to ROEngine.ini:

[IpDrv.HTTPDownload]
RedirectToURL=http://pathtoyourredirect/

- Clients will now automatically download the custom content when connecting to your server
Product Update - Valve
General
• New achievement Fighting The War on Christmas - Participate in a successful territory capture on Commissars House
• Improved CPU performance for all players
• Spectators will now respect the server's roaming restrictions if the viewed player is killed
• Fixed occasional crash when changing teams in the role selection menu
• Weapon upgrades that have been unlocked no longer have a lock icon next to them in the profile menu
Countdown
• There is now a 5 second timeout after using a reinforcement wave in countdown. This addresses problems where several waves get used up at once.
• If the last player alive is still bleeding out they will now be able to live out their last few seconds before the round ends
Territory
• Fixed the round end screen not displaying if the spawn select menu is open
Server
• Servers that become unranked will now attempt to become ranked again after the map changes. We are still working on fully solving the issue with some servers going unranked, but this will help improve the issue.
