Maruk announced in official forum that the Patch V1.96 is now final and official. Files are identical to 1.96 Release Candidate so you don't need to download it if you've already patched to 1.96.
Which file do you need?
-You have OFP:Resistance or Game Of The Year edition (GOTY) patched to V1.96 Beta or Release Candidate; then you don't need any update.
-You have Resistance 1.75 (not patched yet), download the OFP Resistance Patch V1.96:
-You have OFP Game Of The Year edition (GOTY) non patched yet, download the OFP GOTY Patch V1.96:
-Dedicated servers admins need OFP Server V1.96, note that the win32 version is different from 1.96 Server beta (it just no longer accepts 1.95 clients). Suma added Admin and User guides for more information.
Thx to NoUndo for headsup! ;)
