Also, the game will notify you if there is a new update available and ask you if you would like to install it. Includes improvements to netcode, fixes numerous problems that would cause the game to crash to desktop, improves frame rate, heavily reduces lag and disconnects while playing multiplayer, adds the ability to change the field of view for widescreen monitors. The console is also enabled automatically when installing this patch. Many other improvements over the years have been made as well.

Be sure to install to the correct folder where your Nightfire installation is located or the update will have no effect.
This patch does not require the CD to launch the game and will work with any version of the game. It is fully compatible with older servers, unlike the older 1.1 patch.
