Terwijl iedereen in Amerika wacht op het verschijnen van Battlefield 1942 heeft DICE al de eerste patch online gezet. Versie 1.1 van Battlefield bevat dezelfde verbeteringen als die van de laatste demo patch. Zodoende kan straks iedereen zonder problemen overstappen naar de retailversie. CLIENT FIXES

All Seeing Eye server browser support added.

Fixed refresh rate locked to 60 hz in Win2k and XP machines. We're working on getting this fix for Win98 and ME machines, but we're waiting for dev support from Microsoft before we can proceed. To enable this on Win2k and XP machines do the following:

Open the videodefault.con file found in SettingsVideoDefault.con

Edit the line: renderer.allowAllRefreshRates # (where # can be replaced by 0 or 1)

Changing this value to one will allow you to select the refresh rates from the Options>Video section of the in-game frontend. NOTE: the game will default to 640x480.

Fixed bug that caused ammo-boxes and health-cabinets to not work occasionally.

Considerably faster internent in-game browser.

Added icon in the in-game browser for dedicated servers.

Added icon in the in-game browser for password protected servers.

Added icon in the in-game browser showing server CPU status, if it's doing well or if it's bogged down by too many players for it's capacity (this is dependant upon the CPU not the bandwidth). De patch is iets groter dan die van de demo versie, maar met 15MB is er nog steeds geen man overboord. Alle dedicated servers zullen 50MB moeten neerleggen om zich 1.1 compatible te kunnen noemen.
