Point Release

Well, more like Zero Point Something. Here is the long promised multiplayer patch 1.

Online testing revealed a whole list of fixmes a couple months back, so we got to work and eliminated all known problems, except some of the less important niggles which got deferred to a later release. In short:




Put the pakfile (pak1.pak) in the same directory as the multiplayer demo. So you have pak0.pak and pak1.pak next to each other.
