Default Resistance 2 patch incoming

Started a new thread since the other one is discussing sound and the other is for trying to set up matches.

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2009/...h-140-details/

Quote:
Multiplayer Progression

Some people have seen their competitive and/or cooperative characters reset to level 1. For several of those cases, this patch will not only bring back all the XP, stats, and attributes that you’ve lost, but it will also add to your character profile the XP/stats/attributes that you’ve earned since those levels were reset. For example, say you were a level 20 medic and after being reset to level 1, and you earned 5,000 XP. Thanks to the patch, you’ll return a level 20 medic and that 5,000 XP will be added to your profile.

This patch will also correct some medal and trophy issues, including the “Killing Machine” trophy (if you’ve already accumulated 10,000 kills but haven’t received this trophy, it’ll pop up as soon as you download the patch).

Here are some additional patch 1.40 details:

Trophy/Medal/Ribbons

“Salute Me” trophy is not awarded until player reaches level 31 (Lieutenant)
“Berserker” trophy can be collected during non-ranked games
“Survivor” medal can be collected in cooperative games
“Sure Shot” ribbon is awarded if player has accuracy of exactly 50%
Clans

Added clan support for viewing members, sending invites, and setting up clan tags
Default clan region is now USA
Match Balancing

Unbalanced ranked games are cancelled in staging before the game is started
Parties are prevented from matchmaking into free-for-all Deathmatch games
Competitive

Loadouts can be disabled in the “Create Game” screen in competitive games
Balanced the chance of dropping large ammo pickups in competitive games
Core Control scoreboard displays “Kills”
Improved scoreboard formatting
Cooperative

Balanced the amount of XP gained by the Medic class in cooperative games
Stalker movement enabled in cooperative games
Small ammo pickups don’t give LAARK ammo in cooperative games
Weapons/Gameplay

Splash damage on Pulse Cannon can damage the player firing it
Rossmore reticule better reflects its accuracy
Fire is easier to shake off
Players cannot swap weapons in the middle of a melee attack
Miscellaneous

Localized text updates
Network message optimizations
EULA displays the correct language text for Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish and Danish
The best part, imo

Now you may be asking, “But what about adding the option to save the second player’s character progress?” Truth be told, it required a certain PS3 firmware that wasn’t available at the time of Resistance 2’s release. We now have that firmware and are currently working to implement the feature. As soon as it’s ready, we’ll get it out to you.

Seems like they made Co-op harder, sweet! It was getting a bit easy.

I just bought Resistance 2... I haven't even played it yet. Perhaps there is something to be said for waiting a while before buying.

I pre-ordered Gears of War 2 and there were some issues that have finally been patched... I might have been better off waiting a while and then buying it.

Hmmmm.

ooooooh, you have no idea how much my buddy has been waiting for this patch.
we were so disappointed when R2 came out and we realized player 2's co-op stats were reset. so he's been bugging me every time we hang out if it's been fixed yet.
