News just in from DreamCatcher. The next patch (version 1.62) for Painkiller has been released tonight at 1pm EST (6pm UK Time). The patch will also contain the long awaited Linux server which will hopefully begin the proliferation of servers throughout the world at a greater pace then before. The main patch weighs in at 110mb while both the WIN and Linux standalone servers are 120mb. Note that you HAVE to have v1.61 installed before you install v1.62 to get it working.
The update includes a readme which looks like this:
– CHANGE: Linux server updated to 1.62.
– CHANGE: Additional minor physics tweaks to match 1.35.
– CHANGE: Improvements to visual artifacts caused by high lag.
– CHANGE: Shotgun horizontal knockback reduced slightly.
– CHANGE: Cfg.NetcodeEnemyPredictionInterpolationFactor added to allow adjustments to enemy position prediction (default 0.66).
– CHANGE: Removed hallway collision models in maps DM_Psycho, Absinthe and Sacred to facilitate faster player movement.
– FIX: Demo recording FPS dropping issues.
– FIX: Demo playback resetting to Main Menu no longer occurs.
– FIX: FPS drop collision issue on map DM_Psycho fixed.
– FIX: Getting
stuck issue on maps DM_Psycho and Sacred fixed.
– FIX: Random drop on demo playback bug corrected.
– FIX: Spectators going through portals now works correctly.
– FIX: Double teleportation visual now fixed.
– FIX: Staked grenade explosions behind walls no longer work.
– FIX: Map changes while demo recording no longer cause crashes.
– FIX: Miscellaneous sound playback issues.
– FIX: Minor Windows incompatibility error for some users.
– FIX: Weapon fire prediction FXs.
– FIX: Automatically firing after respawn.
NOTE: Version 1.62 includes all changes and enhancements from previous Painkiller updates. Also note, installing this patch will break any previous savegames that are not autosaves or saved in version 1.61.
As always, we

great, nice job. gl!
Brilliant! next stop? 1.7? 🙂
CHANGED: Telefragging Taken out of MP.
So f*cking niiiice!
movement better, but demo playback = no hud, no crosshair and fps lagg ;/ n1!
what’s the story on pk++ for this version?
pk++ it doesnt work if you have it installed you actually load up 1.61 since it load up a pak file with 1.61 code.. so you can have 1.61 and 1.62 on the same folder 😉
I got demo record+playback working on a local listen server.
But if I join a dedicated lan server and want to record from there the playback doesn’t work. It loads the demo file, then I can see for 4 secs the map and then it quits to mainmenu with “Game loaded” in the upper left corner.
Somebody got this too?
./pkserver: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3\’ not found (required by ./pkserver)
jesus fuck christ, please include a README at least with all the dependancies in it… :\\ Now we gotta find the libraries on our own
no readme included??? olol xD
thx god 4 linux 😀
do you have to have 1.61 before loading 1.62?
shame demo playback is fucked
When will pk++ be released.. Minimod is already out!! What about 0.4 that you mentioned some week ago.. ? Please work hard so we can have a great mod again with the new features in 0.4!
1.62 wO_Ow (sounds good, But is it that?)
We will see …
minimod is imho much better, doesnt rape my fps up, its smaller and i like yar 😀
what the flip… i need cpl pk++ to work…
DreamCatcher\Painkiller\Docs\PainkillerPatch1.62Readme.txt <- I DONT THINK THIS IS THE README FFS
when PKTV will be done ?
When it’s ready
i only started playing since the 1.61 patch and thought multiplayer was great fun (apart from the crashes and demos not running) now the demos run but with no hud or xhair :]
as im fairly new to the game and did not play the 1.35ver could somebody explain this to me pls!
“Additional minor physics tweaks to match 1.35”
only the last works for me with 14 kb/s …
on 2 others i need to reg.
on 1 i have got a error
and the first is overload..
Raven – 1.35 has bad netcode, but it had different physics. In later patches physics engine was simplified to tweak netcode issues (basically whole netcode was rewritten and it affected physics). So now PCF/Dreamcatcher try to make physics being more alike 1.35 on new netcode.
I’ve trouble starting the PK linux server, the only “error” I get is “Server initialization failed!”.
– no documentation
– no logs
– no adequate error message
– b*llsh*t out-of-the-box config.ini for pk linux server
When it’s ready.. haha lol, what a classic! Hope it’s ready soon then.. 😀
its done when its done 😀 😀
Lukin the netcode in 1.35 works better online then 1.5 netcode
drekama — it’s coming soon, and you’re going to like it. 🙂
1.62 rocks! Luv it already.
Anyone know the command so i can have hitsound and killsound using minimod? I can not activate them 🙁
linux server runs ok…..but cant load some maps….
any1 having this problem?
The Patch is great, but some s*** is always there -> Demo
Linux dont have the CPL Maps! (2 all Admins)
& (maybe 1) Filefront Patch (like in 1.61) dont workZ
THX 4 return to 1.35 Physics, but most Mappingbugs still in the Game & FPS-Low on 8xAGP (30FPS = fuck Acid & Water just change it 2 Lava!!!!!) PlaeSEEEE
Ztrider – 1.35 needs more bandwidth and lower ping to comfortable playing so I believe it has worse netcode than 1.5 and newer patches. I guess you have good connection to net and simplifying the netcode didn’t improve anything for you 🙂
STOP PLAY WOW .. release a new pk++ !! :>
jesus christ, this is piece of crap, nothing more. this linux server is maybe good in duel, but still when many players on the server (FFA, large TDM or sth) FPS go looooooooow… yep.
P.S. to PCF? when the next patch will be released? 😛
demoplay system is still buggy… game crashed when map is loaded, that’s all about demo watching 😛
Really like this new patch, movement is much easier and I really like it. Only minus I can find is the demoplay that is a bit buggy.
where is pushlatency command ? 🙁 without that 1.62 sucks ass 🙁 fuckin’ “optimalization” 🙁
how about just…forget about pk?
soon we have the year full, a whole year of a game that doesn’t give us back what we deserve for our like 40€…
how about you go f*ck yourself
what about love?
what about kids?
-hugs, Michael Jackson 🙂
Anyone works on pk++ for 1.62? When will it be done?
handyman. When it’s done it’s done 🙂
re up: very smart answer. really. respect.
What are you guys running your linux servers on ? Debian (stable, unstable or testing), Red Hat (FC1, 2 or 3), Suse, Mandrake, Slackware etc ? Thanks.
Go play WoW.
were can i find minimod for pk 1.62 ?
BTW PCF great work !!!
1.62 have good CodinGG! Good Job!
Linux is damned HOT!
reataliator believe me!!!! the LinuxServer we played was oldshool TechniQ! On a highend PC (i believe) we can play more the 8 People.
I’ve tested the server on two machines, both Debian.
First machine has a rather new Debian (minimal (testing) installation with a 2.4.27 kernel). On this machine the PK server can’t start and gives a “Server initialization failed!” error.
The second machine runs an older woody Debian installation upgraded to testing with a 2.4.18-bf2.4 kernel. Here the PK server starts without problems. So…wtf is the problem?
Both PK Server installations are identical (copied them 1:1 from one system to the other).
The new machine is an AMD machine, the older one has an Intel Celeron…
sorry for bad english
getting stuck on absinthe (near rl in silver armor room) and sacred (before gold armor)
