The main menu received a major overhaul, starting with a higher resolution of 1024x768 instead of 800x600, an entirely new theme with darker colors, improved friend list and more. The friend list is now a small series of button at the bottom and is also visible in every section of the menu. The event section has taken the available spot below the player / room information section. Clicking on any of the button on the friend list will bring up a large menu where players can manage their friends, see players in the lobby, their clan members and their inbox. When managing friends, it is now possible to make category to class their friends into different sections if so desired, to be more organized.

Following the update, players will no longer be able to make any sort of changes to the UI folder, which contains kill marks, menu interface, etc. The main reason is that the UI folder, while still in the rez folder, is now updated in a rez file, thus rendering the old UI folder pointless and outdated. It is safe to assume that it was to prevent players to edit the new interface or prevent modding altogether. While it might still be possible, at this point, it would be against the rule to do so, like skin mods.

Global Update

  • The Vietnamese version was second to receive the update, as of April 28th (2015). Along with it, four Ares weapons were included as part of new Black Market capsules.
  • The Japanese version received two modes (Spy & Captain) on April 22nd (2015), along with Ship 2.0. Which means these two modes are not necessarily part of this update and could potentially be added in some other versions before they get say update.

  • The Brazilian version was third to receive 2.0 update as of July 1st (2015). It features the full 2.0 content, such as Spy & Captain mode, Ares weapon set and The Fates VVIP character.
  • The Filipino version was fourth to receive the update as of August 25th 2015. It includes four Ares weapons and Viper VVIP character.

  • The European version was the fifth to receive the update as of September 17th (2015). It also includes a new XM8-Germany that will released in a future update.
  • The Russian version was the sixth version to receive the update as of November 3rd (2015). They also received SR-99 sniper rifle and Super-Shorty shotgun.

  • The North American version was the seventh version to receive the update as of December 10th (2015). It also included Simulation TDM mode instead of Spy Mode.
  • The Japanese version was the eighth version to receive the update as of February 25th (2016). It didn't feature any new modes, but they did get both these two new weapons: SIG716 and MTs-255!

  • The Indonesian version was the ninth version to receive the update. Just like with Japanese version, theydid not receive any new modes nor unique weapons, only the basic contents and ares weapons set was added.
  • The Korean version was the tenth version to receive the update as of April 27th (2016). Similar to the Indonesian version, they didn't get any new modes nor unique weapons, only basic contents and ares weapons plus the three 2.0 maps.
  • The Spanish version was the eleventh and final version to receive the update as of June 9th (2016). They didn't get any new unique modes nor weapons; beside the usual ares weapons series.

  • In CF Vietnam, the Search Friend system is not functional, as typing in a valid IGN and hit Search does nothing even if that person is right in the same channel. This is because CF Vietnam did not update the Friend System to its full functional before 2.0 update (All other features like Friend Group, send/receive PMs... still work however).
  • After 2.0 update, CF Vietnam suffers from a serious "spike" glitch when running in Fullscreen - occasionally, the controls will be completely locked and players are unable to move, shoot, type in chat, or even press Esc to open Pause Menu. Pressing RMB will unlock controls and if players are doing anything, that specific command will be locked until its button is pressed again. This glitch can be avoided by playing in Window Mode.
