It'll break everything. I'm sure someone will claim that it crashed their windows, too.

That's not funny, actually. I forget what game, but one of its patches messed up the monitor refresh rate settings, and hosed a good number of players monitors by setting the refresh rate way high. This was a few years back. Nowadays, most newer monitors will display an "out of sync" message instead of trying to set the rate too high.

I remember that incident but can't remember which game it was.

Yar! New patch on it's way. This is good news and bad news. I sure hope FMI get a ahold this patch to see if compatible with UT:XMP. Our at least make patch 1b compatible.

It'll probably have a special linux hack that makes it run at uber speed and have built-in wallhax :D
