I am reviewing version 1.2.1 which can be found on https://rafalh.tk/

I'll write up a superior review later. I will start with the negatives and then write about the positives.

You need to make it so that if the client has weapon show disabled then the weapon view is disabled in spectate mode. I don't know if you fixed it yet, but the flag blocks half the screen when a player picks it up in spectate mode. It has a feature called "Show Enemy Bullets" forced on and needs a console command to disable this, therefore making it an optional feature. This has some type of error when using the mouse sensitivity command. Type in ms 0.032 and it feeds you back 0.030. For some reason the console reports back a rounded version of your sensitivity. Another error is that the invuln and amp pick up icons aren't centered. (Use RF Add-on 1.1 and pick up amp and invuln to see the difference). The scoreboard is worse than the default. You need to build a new scoreboard and have an "alternatve scoreboard" feature or console command. This lacks a "lazyban" feature. You should be able to type in console, "kick" or "ban" and a list of letters will appear next to each player name. To kick someone you just type in kick a or ban a. You set the default FPS to 60 in the launcher. This is awful. RF's default is 120. It needs more optimizations because I still get more stable FPS on PF. There is a bug where if you die with x gun and x gun is the first weapon you pick up on your next spawn, it uses the autoswitch feature. Dash's window mode is junk.

This patch has a match mode error. Dash clients can still skip reload. Just make it so Dash clients can't skip reload in any mode.

The above mentioned criticisms are meant to be helpful. I am thankful Dash Faction was released otherwise I wouldn't be able to play RF. I think PF is overall a better patch, but Dash Faction is great because it lets me play on Windows 10. There are a few things this patch does better than Pure Faction:

-No requirement to install any Dash Faction files in RF directory. All I did was make a folder on my desktop called "Dash Faction" and put all the files in their then made a shortcut for the .exe

-This has a command for the assault rifle that forces the alt fire to function as a primary fire and the primary fire to function as the alt fire. This feature is essential for me to play RF now and the game is unplayable without it. It is a lot less painful on my hands. Type the following into console: swap_assault_rifle_controls

-This puts the majority of the bonus options in the launcher itself. Important because when we're about to play a match, a lot of RF players will sit around in PF's F1 Menu adjusting their settings (waste everyones time).

-I am no expert on this, but the wide screen fix on this is superior to Pure Faction's.
