2.>New features added in 1.4
Weapon Prediction enhancement for multiplayer games:
Hitscan weapons (such as Pistols, Light Machine Guns and Rifles) have been balanced for connection latency, leveling the playing field between those on modems and players with a faster connection. Additional checking ensures that people on fast connections don't get shot once they've already hidden themselves from a modem user.

Multiplayer Browser:
Server "Ping" text colors have been changed to yellow or white. This will help determine the servers that have enabled the Anti-lag weapon prediction enhancement.

-White "Ping" servers mean that Anti-lag weapon prediction is ON.

-Yellow "Ping" servers means that Anti-lag weapon prediction is OFF.

Filter Servers Button:
Allows players to sort Anti-lag servers via a filter option. Players can now toggle the "Show Antilag" field to: Both, Yes, or No.

-Both - Shows servers ALL servers regardless of Anti-lag settings.

-Yes - Shows only servers with Anti-lag weapon prediction set to "1" which is on.

-No - Shows only servers with Anti-lag weapon prediction set to "0" which is off.

In-Game Options Menu:
Now has a Server Info button that gives you the current settings of Anti-lag within your game. This gives players an in-game method of determining whether Weapon Prediction is on/off.
