Electronic Arts has released a patch that will bring Battlefield 1942 up to version 1.3. The patch includes some technical changes, including optimizations for network performance and a fix for SoundBlaster Live cards on Windows XP and 2000 systems. The patch also includes some new content, notably improved firing animations in the first-person view for the STG44, BAR 1918, MP18, and MP40 weapons as well as new weapon models for the STG44 and BAR 1918. The single-player AI has also seen some improvements, and bots will now prioritize their targets more appropriately.
