its going to work for most once the entire server is using it


so far looks like only 2 people downloaded it from warbux.

You can find the full post regarding the patch here: http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,4982.0.html


Most important part is the following:
 "Both, the host and the player that likes to join the game will need to have the file in their game folder, it doesn't work if only one of them got the file."


There are cases where it might work if only the host got the file (e.g. warbux), but in most cases both will need the file.

I feel strongly about this hosting issue that has plagued war2 for many years. Nothing worse than sitting in the channel with 2-3 willing players and none of us able to host, thus continue sitting with no game. Sometimes theres a full game or 2 and people are stuck on the outside waiting for 1 game to finish to possibly squeeze in if someone afks or leaves.

Hosting is a major issue and should be at the forefront of any updates or patching asap
