    CLIENT ISSUES
    --------------------

    Process for voting an abusive player off a game has been optimized.

    Added planet names at Planet Loading Screen.

    Ping bars have been replaced by ping values in the Internet and LAN Server Browser.

    Ping displays have been optimized.

    Host settings for Max Number of Players, Min Players to Start, AI Difficulty, Show Player Names, and Spawn Invincibility are now displayed in the Server Details box for the Internet and LAN Server Browser.

    Player List box displaying Player Name, Kills, Deaths, and Command Points have been added to the Internet Server Browser.

    Filters for Server Name, Number of Players, Map Name, Era, Ping and Server Type have been added to the Internet and

    Support added for filtering the list of servers so that you can find games by specific criteria. Up to six items can now
    be filtered: Game Name, Number of Players, Map, Era, Ping, and Server Type.
    Map, Era, and Server Type
    ------------------------------------

    These filters have drop boxes to pick which selection you want, with 'All' at the top as a default.
    Game Name, Number of Players, and Ping
    ----------------------------------------------------------

    For these filters, you will need to type in what to filter by and hit Enter to apply the new filter.

    Filtering by Number of Players show all sessions with at least that many players. A filter of '6' will show games
    with (for example) 6/8, 10/24, and 15/40.

    Filtering by Ping shows all sessions with a ping value less than or equal to the ping specified. Number of players and
    Ping both start off at the most permissive values possible, 0 and 9999 respectively. Set the filter values to these
    values for the equivalent of 'All'.

    Filtering by Game Name shows game names containing what is entered. Entering "Dedicated" without quotes) in the Game
    Name filter will show (for example) "Lucasarts Dedicated Server", "Pandemic T1 Dedicated", or "John's Non-Dedicated
    Home Server". To clear this filter, delete the text that was entered in this box.

    Filters are cumulative -- if you change the Map filter to 'Hoth' and the Ping filter to '200', it will show servers which match BOTH of those filters.
    RESOLVED ISSUES
    --------------------------

    Increased stability between game sessions and map cycling.

    Fixed mapping of mouse movements to controls in Key Configuration screen.

    Install process for North American region discs on non-English operating systems has been optimized.

    Difficulty entering vehicles due to latency has been addressed.

    I had the same problem and came to find out the patch download was bad, so I had to uninstall then reinstall the game.

    I emailed LucasArts Technical Support and this is what they said.

    heres the link.
