Patch that, private

EA releases fixes for the retail version of Battlefield 1942 ahead of its release

Ah, good old pre-release bug patches. Those of you waiting patiently for EA's Battlefield 1942 (due out next Friday) will want to use the time to download the 1.1 patch, which addresses problems that arose during demo testing. Sadly, the game was too far-gone into the production stages to allow for implementation of these fixes in the release code, but at least they do exist, eh? The 15MB patch released late last night fixes the 60Hz refresh rate lock in Windows 2000 and XP, with a fix for Windows 98 and Millennium promised in the near future. It also addresses various other less interesting problems, mostly to do with the interface and underlying code. They also fix server stability. Speaking of servers, those of you who plan to host one can download the 50MB standalone server at version 1.1, which will happily accept retail clients on all 16 maps across all game modes. You can download the client patch here and the server patch here, both courtesy of our friends at FilePlanet. Related Feature - Battlefield 1942 screenshots
