Compared to earlier releases of R64, I've had new behavior introduced in build 948. a) I had extreme hitching last night in UT. It may be related to being in a party, as I didn't have hitching when I was soloing earlier in the day. b) I had the game just exit while I was standing at the entrance to the sacrificial chamber in UT (same client session as the hitching). I haven't had the game do that in a very very long time. c) I had the game crash while changing scenes (Brittany Wharfs -> Brittany Fields). This hadn't been happening to me in earlier R64 builds (It was a constant problem in R63 and prior).
