The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim

Recommended Posts

More importantly it broke the fan-patch that allowed the game to make use of more than just 2 gigs of RAM.

Now my Skyrim makes use of 4 gigs of RAM, and it solved my crashing issues. That latest update broke the fan-patch but thankfully a new version of it is back online.

Very poor decision on Bethesda's side.

The Skyrim update broke my game - constant crashing when going to or from Cities, textures missing, and so on :D

Reverted to the original exe and all problems were gone.

Weird, cuz it was the opposite for me. Patch fixed the (few) issues I had.

Nothing regarding the balancing?

"Balance" is a funny issue, and I doubt Bethesda will address this in any serious way. It's almost entirely subjective, some people see balancing issues, some don't. I'm one of those who don't :) it's an interesting discussion point though.

But, for those that do, there will be the inevitable balancing mod releases, to address perceived Destruction & smithing imbalances.

What's the point of balance in a single player game? What difference does it make? Just play however you want with whichever challenges you choose.

Definitely did not fix the sticking projectiles bug. Or mine didn't update. Not sure.

Update is scheduled for today, 30/11, the reason you haven't received it yet more then likely is because steam tend to release updates when the day is new in america, no where else.

Well that's what I have experienced with all of their other games. (RO2 not included :D)

General consensus is: do not patch your game with the new 1.2 patch. Various reasons, but the most compelling for me is that it doesn't seem to actually fix anything or do anything useful, but has a good chance of breaking and deleting stuff. A much better experience can be had using the game as it first installed & starting it from the exe rather than through Steam.

On another topic, here is Zero Punctuation's Skyrim review.

There have been some funny bugs appearing, dragons flying backwards and never landing for example, you can see that on steam news for skyrim.

For me I had no choice to update, as my companions quest line was broken when farkas surprises you with a little transformation, well it never happened, it does now though. :)

What QA team? The player is the beta tester don't you know? Banana software ripes at the users side. BIS does the same but at least they tell you so. Lesson one in 21th century gaming...never ever buy a game at relase unless you wan't to test a beta.

I think I will wait a little bit longer with purchasing Skyrim....

Update 1.2 seems to be total crap and has been taken down by Steam

Did the Update 1.1 fix anything important?

Well, depends what you think is important :) after install, the game runs fine without Steam, you just use the exe. After the 1.1 patch, you are required to run Steam.

Yeah,it nullified the LAA 4gb patch,made Skyrim unusable without Steam and made the game crash for some people(including me).

The only good patch was on day one,it fixed crapload of stuff but since then all the patches have been rubbish.

Listen Beagle advice and buy it after 6 months.

Can play for hours (perhaps days) with the 1.0 / 1.0x available since release day, especially with the 4GB patch installed.

Want to hear something crazy?

My 9800gt goes to 107 Celsius while playing this game, and yet my small ass case doesn't even get that warm. No GPU artifacts from the extreme temps either.

This patch my temps went up usually they were only up to 105 max.

Worse performance in valleys in this patch it seems like Arma micro-stutter I got the latest Driver (not the shit beta drivers)

I'm using Nvidia control panel system tools to monitor the temps (cant in game for some reason only when i go back to my desktop real quick) but its been running hot like this ever since I first used it in 2009 don't see any signs of physical damage on the GPU or anything.

Also having trouble with Mods not showing up, the only one that works for sure is a icon UI mod by Kenney. Would like to use some texture packs and various little mods.
