PS3 "long-term play" issues said to be fixed in upcoming Skyrim patch, confirmed by Pete Hines.
Yesss! Way to come through Bethesda!!!
Improve or fix? Don't mess with us :P
ill believe it when i see it. im playing dark souls until they fix whatever they need to fix with the ps3 version.
i bought it since launch but im in no rush to play skyrim infact ive barely played it since i bought it (well only six hours but it felt like nothing). i dont think i will be experiencing any issues before the patch but i might wait for it
as if dark souls didn't have framerate issues lol
Very good news for anyone who needs to play skyrim on PS3.
FIX THE PC PLOX
GTFO, disagree fairy!!!
Hopefully just a memory leak which gets fixed, if it is dependant on filesize of the savegame a lot of people will be screwed!!! Would be the worst case: Hey you can't use your old savegame but when you start a new game everything will be fine! I am at 11MB and the patch is coming after thanksgiving! EDIT: @LettingGo: I've played agree fairy... ;)
Fix the framerate FFS!
Personally speaking... I haven't found a problem yet with my PS3 version of Skyrim. Although, I wish I didn't have to keep switching my weapons just to use my magic. When I want to use my Bow my magic is no longer active unless I equip a 1 handed weapon, but yet my character can run with the bow using only 1 hand. I just get tired of pulling up the menu to switch to my magic to restore health n then when finished n ready 2 fight, I have to switch back to my previous weapon...gets kinda silly when u r in a big fight. Anyway, that's my only problem..hope they fix that. Other than that..m good so far. Game on.
Very few problems for me as well. The only time I notice any framerate drops is in towns. But the most I've played at one shot is about 3 or 4 hours, so maybe I'm not playing long enough to get the problem people are talking about when they play for a long time. The problem you're talking about isn't something that's going to be fixed because that's the U.I. Bows are a two handed weapon. End of. BUT, here's a tip for your problem. You don't have to bring up the menu or even the favorites list to switch. Whatever you switch back and forth between alot, like for you bows and one handed, you can set them to the left and right d-pad buttons for insta-switching by holding left or right on that item on the favorites menu.
Thanks for that tip!
I have my save at 11mb and the only time i get a problem is at whiterun. i just stop and wait till the frame rate goes back to normal usually as few seconds and then everything is grand until i got back to whiterun.
I haven't ran into this lag issue due to long term play. But I am happy that they are going to fix it. NOTE TO STALKER: I guess after they fix this you can play over 40 hours without incidents you troll. XperiaRay
my only problem is the framerate drops dramatically when i fight with dragon. lol im on the ps3 version the. how about the xbox?
okay that's fine but what about all of the quests that keep bugging out on me. You know Tolfdir in the mage college? Yeah, he wants you to meet him down near some ruins. Guess what? he ain't there. He ain't at the college anymore either. I don't know where the dude is. I can't get into Sarthal without him, because he probably has the damn key. This isn't the first major quest NPC issue I've had. The other one, on my other save was near dawnstar where all the spiders are. Well, apparently the dude I was supposed to follow went into some other ruins and got sucked into a wall. The arrow is clearly there to indicate him being in the building, however I cannot see him. And there are no doorways to get where he is. This is a serious issue. I can't complete these quests without these NPCs.
"Waking Nightmare" is the name of the 2nd quest I mentioned. If you are also experiencing any of these issues, speak up.
The one at the mages college happened to me. Just go to the ruins he tell you to meet at, if he isnt there - wait for around 12 hours then he should magically appear :) worked for me anyway.
I had to reload my save. Tried waiting for THREE DAYS. THREEE DAYS I DONE WAITED FOR THAT FOOL.
Haha sorry man it worked for me.
my friend gad the same problem and he decided to walk the route that tolfdir would have gone. he found them half way there kneeling on the ground and a snow bear about 1 foot away. he killed the bear and tolfdr got off his knees and started to walk towards the ruins and got there in the end. it happened to me a few times in quests you are supposed to meet people at curtain locations. hope it helps.
i have not touched this game yet i have had it for almost a week i have been playing other new games at the mean while i'm just waiting for them to patch it couple times so that i won't run into these (problems)also i have never played a elder scrolls game before so i'm a little excited to play this game
smart thing not to buy this game.same thing happen when i buy fallout New Vegas on the first day game was unplayable,lesson learn.
Bethesda y u waste your time with the PS3 version while you could make the other versions better? LOL I'm just messing with you guys of course I'm happy with that even if I'm on the 360. It shows they care about their fans, one of the most important things when you're making games. One question: when they say they will fix the texture issue on the 360 does it mean graphics are gonna be better or that we just wont get those texture lags anymore?
I think they'll release both patches at the same time. Also they'd be referring to the texture lag. Nothing wrong with the textures as they are. XD
Thank god bc im tired of waiting for this patch to improve my gameplay.
Patches will only fix bugs, not your gameplay :-p
