The patch will be going live today. Typically, the dedicated server build is released slightly in advance to provide time for the server admins to update.

Just tried it and seems the globalbanlist url is appending the globalbanlist.ini file on startup so you will have a ban list full of duplicate bans.

We'll look into that now - thanks for reporting. If you are experiencing issues, you can delete your old profile and create a new one: homefront dedicated server\GCGame\Config\DedicatedProfile_[ProfileName]

Also, I attached our official damage chart as well as screenshots for some of the new features in the patch. The full size images will be posted to the community wiki today (http://wiki.homefronter.com/wiki/Balanced_for_PC & http://wiki.homefronter.com/wiki/Dedicated_Server_Setup).

We're not get any other reports of duplicates being created thus far. All seems smooth as connection are hitting our servers. B3 connecting in nicely as well.

We'll track this issue closely to make sure.

But as far as I can tell, all systems are go !

Reboot the game / server if you haven't already.

The browser is populated with updated servers but if anyone is experiencing a problem with their server appearing, double-check that you have the correct versions for both. Once confirmed, try restarting your server as well as your Steam client.

If you still have trouble, please provide as much info as possible on your setup.

Thanks

Yep I can only bring up about 40 servers on the browser..

Server is up to date so is my client..Restarted both but to no avail..:confused:

I can join the server via IP connect but they will not appear in the game browser..

But only 38/40 servers keep appearing the browser so i can only assume that the master server is having a problem?
