Patch v1.02: Battlefield Vietnam

Electronic Arts has released the second patch of Battlefield Vietnam, the sequel of Battlefield 1942, both developed by Digital Illusions. There are two fixes, one adressing the client disconnects and the other one the crash to desktop. "Battlefield Vietnam drops players into some of the Vietnam War's fiercest battles. Fighting in theatres from jungles surrounding the Ho Chi Minh Trail to the city streets of Hue, players will choose from two well-equipped forces, the United States or the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and Vietcong".
