This is amazing.

But, I presume the sniper rifle's damage reflects the single player's damage, correct?

The mods just won't load on the server, there's no need for a clean JC2 folder.

I'm not sure, you can try it with the mods but if it doesn't work just uninstall the mods and have a clean Just Cause 2 file, It should work I say but the mods won't work on the MP if it does work.

There's only one way to mount mods onto MP and as I know of you're not meant to do it. Besides, it just ruins the bug report tool too, so I wouldn't recommend it even if it tastes delicious.

READY THE FAQ CANNON, MEN. IT'S GOING TO GET ROUGH.


Words are not enough to express my anticipation right now.

Quote
Added 2,100 new vehicle spawns
Yes!
Quote
Fixed issue related to respawning
Hell yes! Is this the bug where vehicles don't show up for one player?
Quote
Greatly improved player sync
Yes! Any specifics?
Quote
Standardised weapon damage across player and agents
What does this mean? Sometimes I see flaming vehicles that appear to be close to exploding, but's that's not the case on the other player's screen. Was this fixed?

All I want to know is are all weapons scattered around Panau, do we spawn with a set of random weapons, is the damage for each weapon like in Single player? Does sniper shots insta-kill? So much I want to know  :o
