Great news for Ps3 users, the Uncharted 3 patch is also live.
Some say that they "resolved" the problem by reducing texture resolution on PS3. Can anyone verify this?
Er well that is sucky if true
Article quotes someone who says textures have been lowered to fix PS3 lag issues. I really hope this isn't true. Any evidence? http://forums.bethsoft.com/...
Woohoo. Its out, and it works.
Skimming through the Bethesda forums, seems to be a good deal better. They collectively said it works. Some said they thought the graphical textures were lowered but the majority says that is not true. Apparently there is no list with the patch so everyone assumes that this patch will fix the lag issues and the next patches will address broken quest issues or other bugs and such. Some have asked if the perfomance features could be optional, becuase they say if the PS3 version could turn of FXAA or whatever its called, it will look and run just like the 360 version which doesnt have those things enabled automatically. Either which way I am excited to see how this performs,
I dont know about all that stuff. The game appears to look just as good as it did, at least its not different enough for me to notice. The only difference I can see is the frame rate looks like butter compared to what it was.
i booted up skyrim and i'm not getting the patch.is it out in the states, my location is chicago?
runs like butter :) haven't noticed texture drops either. wonder how they fixed it.
Good to hear for the PS3 Players. Skyrim is such a fantastic game, it was a shame about its launch problems on the ps3.
what? That user said the textures are worse now???! Judging by the term "patch for long term play on ps3" , It was intentional to release the game looking the same as the 360, only to lower it now... , And anybody that playtested the game wouldve noticed how it became over time. Its laggy a bit even at 6mb. I smell a bit of "bait and switch"...
Two users (one who appears to be trolling) in a 5 page thread say they've lowered textures and you jump on conspiracy theories! The vast majority are stating no noticeable difference (if any at all) in the texture quality, and that the lag is mostly fixed. Sounds like good news to me.
I've played around 40 hours, and only this weekend did I start to see lag that really caused me problems. I've been doing mainly Misc and side quests, but the lag really started when I triggered one particular main quest - so I wonder if it's actually related to save file size. Overall I've not had any major complaints. And only one bugged quest as well (which was sorted after I reloaded an earlier save). Good that the patch seems to have mostly sorted the lag - it was starting to become a big problem unless I regularly rebooted (makes me think it might have been a memory leak issue).
Could you tell us the name of the main quest? I've gotten pretty far with the main quests (completed Elder Knowledge), and am now cleaning up some side/miscellaneous quests, so I'm wondering if I've done it yet. Thanks!
I'm still pretty early in the main quest. Where I noticed the lag really kick in was during A Blade in the Dark. Following Delphine was almost impossible at times. Before that I had a little stuttering (mainly in Whiterun) and after prolonged play - but the moment that quest kicked off it was like someone had thrown the lag switch!! My save was about 7.5Mb at the time.
That's the exact same quest where mine was nearly unplayable. I brought it down to one save file and it's been alot better...but still small drops every now and then.
I have 62 saves. I need to trim them down.
Thanks again. I didn't notice an issue during that quest, but my save file was probably half the size of yours at that time. Hopefully the patch addresses the save file size issue completely.
No noticeable drop in textures. Walking around Solitude. That city is detail rich and it looks no different.
