Again: this is not yet a release candidate for retail 175! We will enable and disable stuff as needed to focus testing.


Tweaked the loading screen a bit
Reenabled all stealth tools (resolved crash issue)
Reenabled all drones (NPCs now target drones correctly)
Tweaked interpolation ("clipping fix")
Added mission NPC to grant XP needed for WoC5

Please test the improved interpolation and the drone safespotting fix as extensively as possbile! Also everything else still needs much testing, the more you test, the earlier this patch will reach gold status!
