by Rainier on July 9, 2005 @ 9:34 p.m. PDT | Filed under News

"Since the BF2 v1.01 update is causing memory leakage on some systems, we recommend that you reinstall the game and NOT the v1.01 update released earlier this week. Reinstalling Battlefield 2 will not affect your in-game medals or ranked server statistics. EA and DICE are committed to getting a fix for v1.01 as soon as we possibly can and will continue to keep you informed through this web space in the coming days. NOTE: If you installed and are running the newer server files (Win and Linux versions) made available earlier this week, please revert those as well, those files had the same issues with memory leaks as did the v1.01 update."
