The only issue I had with the unpatched game was stuttering that manifested only after loading a saved game, fps would drop to <10 from smooth 40-50 @ DX10, after ~10 seconds of stutter fps jumped back to normal and stayed there until next load. I always just idled around to pass the stutter... 1680x1050 worked fine with the 3rd party widescreen patch that enabled full horizontal FOV.

btw, what did the mouse acc. bug cause?

Agreed, especially later in the game when they play dead. I do wish that they would get a good widescreen patch out too.

Just out of curiosity, what was the whole widescreen issue?

Complaints still arising at 2K forums about this patch not fixing startup, and crash issues on certain systems, mainly with nVidia cards.
Upon installing a popup window stated the patch is for the uncensored retail version.
Thing is I didn't even know there were two versions of the game.

Lol 2K devs were lazy and just cropped the top and the bottom of the screen to make it fit on a wide sceen monitor.

Nothing if you didnt notice lol. I use windows with the mouse fix that eliminates acceleration, which I hate to death, well Bioshock brought on its own accel and screwed it up for me.

New Patch sped up mouse sensitvity.

Tested the patch and found it had made the mouse sensitvity go up a notch.
It was fine at 2 but now it's noticably faster.
Bring it down to one and its too slow.

I'm using a Logitech MX518 gaming mouse at the moment.
Solved it by using Logitech setpoint to drop the dpi of the mouse to 700 instead of 800 when I play Bioshock.

Overall the Patch wasn't much use to me.
I only have a sounds cut out other sounds when too many things are going on in rare occasions which still happens.
Only noticable differences to me wer'e the splicers not waving anymore, Big Daddys have changed and the new plasmids.

I'll have to apply this patch before playing the game again. I never got to finish before my main machine's motherboard died. The replacement should be here tomorrow, finally.
