    it just goes to show that given time modders will fix what bethesda is unwilling to, it just takes them god damn forever to do hahaha.

    sadly im still without proper crossfire support do to 4gb mod, oh well, once 1.2 patch gets its drm removed ill test the un encumbered version out and see what the difference is.

    It also appears 1.2 patch breaks more things then it fixes from spells, to Dragons it has some serious bugs. that are worse then the ones they fixed.

    Without a doubt I get a much better exchange rate than that and I don't use any of those enchants because if i did it would bring the value of my items up even higher and I already can't sell them at the SELL price because the vendor can't afford it. :laugh:

    And I thought New Zealand had some steep prices for internet data.
    Are you WCDMA at the moment?


    Like a Vodem or a T-Stick?

    Seems the controls for mouse and keyboard have somewhat been refined which is a good thing.

    Now you know why I ask people to put screenshots in spoiler quotes.
    They still load in the background, but I get the rest of the text so I can at least view the thread. lol

    I probably hit my (rolling) monthly cap and will have a crap connection for weeks. Oh well, I guess I'll just troll threads here. :D

    wot be patching the game for now hehe (offline mode) with all these new problems (i hear flame atronachs die with fire now? XD). LAA seems to be giving me more trouble than improvement in my case so i just reverted back to the original one (i see no real improvement anyway since i don't use any mod that requires huge amount of memory)

    Is anyone able to give me their version number for their launcher and exe? I am not sure if mine updated as I have to do mine via VPN.. but I used my VPN and steam just goes straight to the Skyrim launcher.

    My current versions:

    Launcher: 1.2.14.0
    TESV.exe: 1.2.12.0

    Yeah apparently all resistances are totally effed by the patch. Ugh Bethesda. So this is things like resistance to magic, frost etc. incl on enchanted items. Perhaps even soul trapping too but haven't seen mention.

    Guess gonna start up Steam offline too as can't remember if turned off auto. But even so...

    Edit: Oh wait there's apparently more:

    Hmm corrupted saves too? My hunch is that may not be across the board but backing them up before a patch is a general good practice anyway.

    Edit 2: Now seeing reports that disabling auto-update still updates it. Need to be in Offline mode.

    wow, did they updated it to become a beta build? XD

    oh wait, since dragons are resistive to soul traps and the patch broke some resistance? can you soul trap a dragon now along absorbing its soul? XD

    Hmm I randomly found a ring of extreme archery and peerless illusion in my inventory, not sure how it got there as I am way too low level to find those kinds of items (level 13 atm)

    assuming you have a 1gb card go to you're skyrimprefs.ini and change these settings

    iShadowMapResolution=
    Set that to 4096

    And change
    iBlurDeferredShadowMask=
    to 32

    Looks a lot better IMO, makes the shadows a lot softer round the edges rather than have GLARING pixel edges :laugh:

    FPS hit 1-2 fps with my rig in specs ( cept phenom II 720 @ 3.64 instead)

    I'm still starting up offline for the first time today here in a few.

    Exactly. Ah screw offline mode I'm just gonna launch it in hopes it's been pulled. If not I have a backup of my game folder.

    Edit: Damnit, not pulled. Paused before it finished d/l. And ya I had it to not update wtf Steam...

    I was unable to play in Offline mode. Let it update then replaced whole Skyrim folder from backup.

    Just curious if anyone has De-Fragged their game. Go to the game's properties and then under local files check the % fragmentation.
