- 2. To join a patch game with a password you must type the full password including the "#" symbol. (example: #123456)
- Added suspect code scanning. Players with suspect code on their system will display a brown dot beside their name in the game lobby and in game.
- Suspect code includes: Detection of CodeBreaker, GameShark, GSM, OPL, or any unrecognized code.
- Suspect players will NOT be removed unless they are voted out.
- Suspect players CAN join all patch game types as well as regular games.

HOW TO
 
How to create a PATCHED room:
1. Create a password game where the first letter of your password is "!" without the quotation marks.
(Example Password: !123456789)
2. Create the rest of the game as normal.
 
How to create a PATCHED room with a password:
1. Create a password game where the first letter of your password is "#" without the quotation marks.
(Example Password: #123456789)
2. Create the rest of the game as normal.
 
How to create a HALO room:
1. Create a password game where the first letter of your password is "@" without the quotation marks.
(Example Password: @123456789)
2. Create the rest of the game as normal and make the game respawn.
 
How to join a patched room:
1. Join it as you would a regular game without a password.
Patched rooms allow players with the patch to bypass the password entry. Regular users will be prompted with a password. If you are prompted with a password box then the room was not created properly for patch players or it was created by regular players.
 
How to join a patched room with a password:
1. Enter the password including the # symbol.
(Example Password: #123456)
 
How to check your patch version:
1. Hold [SELECT] at the LAN lobby(room listing menu) and the patch version will be displayed.
Note: Patch version will also display on the main menu at the bottom of the screen.
 
How to use a clan tag:
1. The tag is inserted when creating your name at the login screen for LAN.
2. Create your name like this: [TAG]name
Example: [CC]Harry62 The game will separate the clan tag and name when joining a room.
 
 
Rank icons are based on KDR:
 
<0.2:1 = Ensign
>= 0.2:1 = Lieutenant
>= 0.5:1 = Lieutenant Commander
>= 1.2:1 = Captain
>= 3:1 = Admiral
 
 
COMMON QUESTIONS
 
Q: Do patched players have an advantage?
A: No. Patch players will default to non-patch rules when playing a regular game. The only patch features they will have in regular games are listed above in the "FEATURES" section.

Q: Can regular players use the patch features in a patched game?
A: No. In order to have patch features you must have the patch and join/create a patched game.

Q: Does cheat detection work in regular games?
A: No. It will only work in a patched game. Players without the patch can not join these games.

Q: Can I use an older version of the patch with the newest version?
A: No.

Q: How do I create a patched game?
A: Create a game with a password. The password MUST start with the ! symbol followed by any characters you want. Example password: "!12345". Players using the patch will join the game automatically while regular users will be prompted with a password.

Q: Can I still join regular games?
A: Yes and regular players can still join your game if you create a non-password game or a password game where the password does NOT begin with the "!" symbol.
 
 
Known issue and solution
 
Custom maps showing up as regular maps for everyone excluding host. This usually affects the first map only in my experience and testing. 
ex: aban_day, crossroads, cross_night, frostfire, frost_day, etc.

Solution: Create patch games with either custom maps or regular maps, not both.
