Anyone else notice the new "Widescreen" option under graphics? It makes things look more natural in terms of aspect ratio, but the model of the player's arm creeps into the picture when holding a two-handed weapon and the arm is simply modeled as a rectangle. No detail at all. Made me go back to normal view to avoid the Nintendo 64-esque arm. Also, it seems as though objects aren't gradually introduced in the distance like before, but they seem to just appear at a certain range a la BF2. Since the game still crashes in single player mode, and nothing new has been added, this patch is worthless to me.

DX10 does have more effects. The disappearing grass is a known symptom of DX10, though.
