OPS Mag: That’s the 1.4 million dollar question. Now, though, it looks like Lagzilla might finally have been put out of its misery, thanks to the new Skyrim 1.4 PS3 patch. Well, ‘might’.
oh yeah, its completely fixed. :)
Im glad to hear this:)
Nice, it seems that my patience to pick this game up has finally paid off.
It works great for me. I'm about 200 hours in and a level 59 character. My game saves are still 10 MB though but as long as there continues to be no lag, I'm happy.
Yes. My 179 hour 17 mb game was so big that lag showed up in minutes. Now the game is much more stable. Too bad I already got the plat.
wow, respect, man. you have some crazy dedication to the game. I stopped playing around a 10mb save.
finally! Im glad to hear it, im gonna start saving up for Skyrim on ps3
Well the article says that after playing for an extended period that the lag comes back. I mean what do you expect from an overpriced internet ready blu ray player? Just play it on PC or the superior Xbox 360 for crying out loud. "The Xbox 360 is the BEST console EVER made." --John Carmack
Troll much insallgud?
why should we care about a quote from Carmack , a pc genius indeed , but wich hasnt released anything memorable on any console ? Or are you going to pretend that the ports of quake and doom matter on consoles , or that Rage isnt something decent but already forgotten ? You are scrapping the bottom of the barrel with your quote . Wake us up when actual and major actors in console gaming says so
@Itsallgud, i threw up a few times after reading your comment. Thanks
Is that sarcasm? People usually put smiley faces after sarcastic comments...
Lol, that's a good one. To be honest I got the pc version since I don't really trust Bethesda with PS3 ports. Hopefully this fixes every problem the PS3 version has and also fix their reputation.
Lol, and I just started playing Skyrim on the PC. Oh well..
Then I'll enjoy the "GOTY" edition....
This post is for those people who never actually read the article, and will complain because of that. Might save the rest of us some headaches: “The 1.4 patch for Skyrim includes many performance-enhancing updates for the PlayStation 3. A few important things to note: 1. To ensure the fastest jump in performance after applying the patch, be sure to first create a new manual save by entering the save menu and choosing “save game.” You should then restart your PlayStation 3 before continuing to play. 2. If you encounter strange behaviour while playing immediately following application of the patch, do not be alarmed – this is a temporary effect of Skyrim scripts correcting themselves after the update. Once this process runs its course, be sure to make a new save and restart your PlayStation 3.”
My game had next to no issues before the patch. The patch completely hosed my game up. Bring on the nonsense disagrees, but this is what happened to me. I have more lag than ever. 25% of the time when I'm trying to loot corpses, I get a good 10-15 seconds of lag.
13MB save file, lv 40 mage. Two 6 hour sessions. Yes, the patch fixes the lag. But had to make another save file so maybe that's why I'm good, and some others experience lag after long periods of time. They never followed the instructions after installing the patch.
Realy?! A great news!
Huh, didnt know it was out. Thats great to hear! Havent played it in a while, left it to give other games a chance i.e. BF3 & MGS HD Collection, but the game is so huge its gonna be hard to get back into the swing of things.
Nah you'll get straight back into the swing of things. I typically don't stop playing a game till I finish it but Skyrim is too huge for me to do that. With Skyrim I play in between other game releases, it's surprising how quickly I can get back into it.
You're probably right. I usually split my gaming between a singleplayer game and multiplayer game, but once you get stuck into Skyrim its like the black hole of gaming, just takes away all your gaming time. So to prevent missing out on other games, i had to give it a break for a while.
Haha, yay. Now I can start considering to get it.
My Game ......... 14mb file has dropped to 12 and the game is playing smoother . A lot smoother . I have only played the new patch for an hour or two so lets give it 20 more hours and see. Note: I have to wonder what parts of the game have been chopped ...... to create a smaller save file .
They Didn't Cut Anything out. They used a healing spell and it fixed the lag
The script reason they give makes perfect sense to me as my 37MB file slowly dropped to 21MB after a huge list of 'errors' listed themselves out on the screen when I completed the main quest before this patch. I am going to try this patch to one such save game I still have to see if it the same effect.
i just knew this was gonna happen somehow i knew it ;/... the lag is gone which is good :).. however .. i just platinumed the game yesterday :( i just feel like i missed out xD..like whats the point in playing with no lag now xD... i should've played arkham city before skyrim... instead of now.
i wasn't aware there was any DLC, or were you talking about a future release? in that case a come back would be very enjoyable x]
I'm confused...I have been busy with school and got back to gaming, my version was 2.03....
yeah it's because the first patch they accidentally name it 2.00 for the ps3 so they have to continue from there cuz it cant go backwards so 1.4 means 2.03 on ps3
i think this was only in EU
Well, too bad, the lag isn't fixed yet, Markarth is a mess.
It fixed the lag for me, Ive been playing 4 hour non-stop games back to back to see if the lag ever came back and it never did really. only minor freezing when getting deadly kill but other than that its fine.
