We havent heard from the Battlefield Conversion Team in a while, but an update on the progress of their expansion of the Official WWII mod for Battlefield Vietnam to include all of the BF1942 content has been posted on their website. Click on the link below to see the progress that they have made and the roadblocks that they are up against.
EA Released patches for both Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield Vietnam today to address what is being described as an “undisclosed exploit”. These are must downloads and installs. These are all relatively small files with the largest weighing in at just over 10MB.
On the BFV forums at PlanetBattlefield people seem to be having mixed results with the patch including crashes and mass server kicking. One user discovered what is thought to be the exploit in question and it appears to be a server crash/privacy vulnerability. More information can be found here
Ed – After reading more on the PBF forums everyone is having trouble with this one so far. I would hold off on installing it for the moment. – Sarge
