Thanks I had a great time. Only problem is that they smoked
out my win32 test machine while I was away :-)

I don't know if they managed to include the new meshes in the
next patch; otherwise they will be broken in the win32 build
as well again. Need to check this. Though with OB7 and the next
patch they aren't impacting performance as much as earlier, right?

Thanks andreas hope the holiday was good and the place
wasn't in too much of a mess when u got back :D
You don't know how much we need that config patch, so its
great to hear that its gonna be coming in the next beta.
Is the next patch also going to fix the broken carriers, would
be great to be able to play those maps again.
