BF2 patch needs patching up


Electronic Arts has advised Battlefield 2 fans to dump the patch they downloaded last week after it turned out that a memory leak was causing problems "on some systems".

Speaking in a community update on the game's official website, EA admin type Mike said: "we recommend that you reinstall the game and NOT the v1.01 update we released earlier this week".

He also advised users of the new server files for Windows and Linux to revert to the unpatched version as well.

EA aims to have a fix for the fix fixed up sharpish, Mike continued.

Popular young person's multiplayer first-person shooter Battlefield 2 (and the stats suggest it is very popular) is out now on the PC.
