Rainbow Six 4 LOCKDOWN is now $19.99 (CDN)

I know this isnt the greatest game but its actually worth getting now, i picked mine up from futureshop for 22 bucks (thats with tax). I heard that it has a lot of problems but If there was a mod to fix it all i think things would go great for this game.

I'm a resident cheap rat bastard, and I say $19.99 is too much !

With the ammount of stuff I'd think that game would need changing it'd be better to start an Open Source project to write a TacFPS in Java, then pay some one to do the textures/audio.

I will pass, as I don't see any improvement over RVS series.

well I read that these is a patch thats being worked on, it was posted on may 19 2006 (my 21st birthday btw lol) here are the notes

Audio
-----
- Sound popping should be fixed both in software and hardware modes
- Improved software buffer sound
- Added in-game option to select hardware/software mixing
- Fixed some 3D sound propagation issues

AI
--
- Fixed a few AI issues
- Fixed smoke grenade bug for AI team members
- Fixed a few hostage issues in MP Rivalry modes

MultiPlayer
-----------
- Added direct connect to server command line option "lockdown -client ipaddressort", i.e. "lockdown -client 10.24.45.80:2346"
- Improved ping time number, still does a full game loop ping
- Fixed connection issues when playing online
- Fixed some online dialogs and queries
- Changed PunkBuster behavior so it doesn't automatically turn off
- Added ability to specify game port for online and offline connection
- Fixed unlimited rounds on dedicated server
- Encrypted Ubi.com passwords
- Fixed a few game browser filtering issues
- Fixed Free For All spawn location bug for 'merc' side
- Fixed a few bugs affecting scoring in Rivalry modes
- Added spectator mode view when you die in No Respawn games

Dedicated Server

----------------
- New command line "lockdownded filename.nds"
- New rcon command "nextmap"
- Fixed more than a few crash issues
- Dedicated server doesn't require D3D to run anymore
- Multiple bug fixes
- Added a few rcon commands
- Added 16-player dedicated server support
- Dedicated server can now be started from the command line
- Ability to run multiple servers using different ports/IP addresses on a single machine
- Fixed a few issues with reticule disappearing or not being the proper color in some game MP modes
- Fixed a few crashes related to kits and loadouts

Mod system
----------
- Fixed a few crash issues
- Fixed a search order issue preventing replacement of guns, items, etc.

General
-------
- Added suicide and suicidesp console commands

New Options
-----------
- AUDIO
"disableVoiceCommand", turn off voice recognition
- GAME
"spAlternateMovementSpeed", to use old Rainbow Six/Raven Shield walk/run speeds
- MULTIPLAYER
"usePlayerNameOnline", allows player to use their PlayerName when going online instead of Ubi.com login name
"LANPortNumber", Default 2346 allows you to change LAN port
Changing the offline connection port should only be done if you KNOW what you are doing since ONLY machines using the SAME LAN port will be able to see each other to play the game. Changing this setting on a single machine will effectively prevent the machine from playing with others.

"UBIDotComPortNumber",Default 2346. Changing this can help fix router/firewall issues

"LANIPAddress", default "0.0.0.0". Mostly for tech people (not recommended unless you know what you are doing)

"UBIIPAddress", default "0.0.0.0". Mostly for tech people (not recommended unless you know what you are doing)

LETS HOPE FOR THE BEST!!!

If it was any game but lockdown I'd dissiagree James.

If it wouldn't mean most of my life savings, I'd buy it just to try the patch and AI Mod later on.

He's got a point,we'd need at least a 8-Players server if we where to ever get recruitment going.

SWAT4's 5-Man is bad enouhg since they won't patch TSS so we can adopt that.
