No increase of flash knockouts? That's what I was mostly hoping for.

I'm buying this for the PS3 depending on how this update works. Are the above fixes for online and offline? I own this already for the 360, I'll wait to sell the game and system until after the update.

Was there ever any elaboration on "Improved cheat detection logic"? What exactly does this fix?

Can you please explain what a spamming block is? I know it should be self explanatory but I am having a brain fart. Thanks in advance.

I can't wait.

if these work as planned, this could be epic. I stopped playing fn4 online cuz of the cheesing.

Now all they need to tune is the jab and cross and we could have a great boxing SIM.

Man, this game gets better and better for me. This just adds to the replay value for me.

"It's going to sap all your stamina" is what we hope for. Whether or not the patch does that is another story. The first patch adjusted stamina with continuous punching, but not enough. I want to see a guy breakdown early because he throws and moves around too much.

But I agree. I sure hope it all gets fixed.

Being able to edit licensed boxers? That will definitely get me back into playing this game again! I'm sure we'll have to have a "licensed boxers edit" thread.

As much as praise this new patch, i gotta say that the cheesers will find somn new to exploit....its a never ending battle...

but regardless im very happy about the new additions...even lesser loses to cornballs is around the corner

I assume that the licensed boxers edit is going to be a separate download because it's not in this last patch....?
