This looks great, but be aware that they have not released the 1.03 dedicated server executable yet. So I would strongly suggest you keep a function copy of 1.02 around until the servers you play on can be upgraded.

Will Advise tommorow Or later today for ya Brits And Scots......oh And Welsh.

I've dwld the patch ..and tried to load the campaign and it crash to desktop...I wasn't surprise cause this game is still BETA...it will need a couple of more patch...probably be a good game if one day they can fix it....but i trully doubt that they can.

If you have fun with this game well good for you...but I don't.

Were you trying to reload your already in progress campaign?

If so, getting a CTD is not a surprise.... From the Patch instructions:

It is not recommended to use any savegames created in versions 1.00 or 1.01, if you use a savegame from 1.02 some of the fixes may not apply to that game in progress until the beginning of a new mission.

I understand people have also seen crashes when trying to load 1.02 saves.

1.3 patch is causing wide scale issues with all original and modded missions at present. Big issue is some map object ID`s have been changed. So any missions at all, that call an ID will not function until reloaded and saved in the editor.

Mods and addons are also causing lot of issues with server synching and crashes. Most seem to be they are not compatible any more and need some fixes.

Played coop last night with no mods ar anything else, team of 6, all was perfectly fine, big improvement.

But massive difference on other servers using any mods or addons, or other players joining server using addons. Constant game stutterings and so, crashed out at least 3 times over a few hours.

*Edit*

CBA mod update
