Skyrim Patch 1.2 Screws Everything Up

Bethesda has released Patch 1.2 and all the Skyrim gamers rojoice, right? Not.

The full list of fixes can be found here. But, it seems that with all of these fixes, comes some problems.  Resistances, most players picked a class that had a resistance with it, like Dark Elf’s and their 50% fire resistance, and Nord’s with 50% frost resistance and vampires usually taking tons of damage from fireballs, that doesn’t work anymore either and PlayStation 3 users are reporting seeing dragons flying backwards.. This resistance issue has been tested on both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 version and it’s now being looked at by Bethesda.

So if you have already updated on the xbox 360, don’t bother clearing your cache, because all your previous game saves require version 1.1 and the game reverts back to 1.0, Fun stuff right?

    I don’t think this qualifies as screws EVERYTHING up. Being a little dramatic. It doesn’t even effect everyone. Its temporary and if you find yourself dying lower the difficulty until its fixed or remove the patch.

    So in other words thanks to the internet, game devs can release unpolished games and if it sells then they can fix it with a million Patches. What about those who do not live in America and Europe and are unable to maintain a reliable and affordable line.

    Do we just wait for the GOTY edition? Im also sitting with a very short 4hour Batman game that has half the code on the disk locked away for Cat Woman. Anybody want my redeem code?

      The Elder Scrolls series is very in-depth, non-linear, and complex. So obviously it’s going to have a few bugs on release. Video games in general were also a lot simpler before the internet, so just shut up and deal with it. Don’t like it? Go back to playing pong or something.

      • Reply Oldfart

        lol Nothing wrong with Pong. The entire game is a bug.
        But many people have the best game ever made is sitting under the tree for xmas. Do they know about how game breaking it is on the PS3? Or about the patches and so on. Or is it just the internet that is blowing smoke up our bums?
        I love Skyrim for the fact that it pulls a middle finger at greedy suites who believe in creating an unfinished short products that require DLC or tacked on Multi-player because the singlr player games is dead.
        But being unable to install the game to the xbox because of it prevents the textures from loading is just crazy.
        Its still the best game ever made. Period.

        you do realize the patches that have been on the pc version have only served to break it more.

        more bugs to repair a handfull of minor or rare bugs is not acceptable, when the game was released it worked. i could workaround the bugs, both patches killed workarounds.

        the worst is Bethesda is not even stepping up to the plate saying hey guys we f’d up sorry. until we can properly fix the problem, we will roll back the patch, just reinstall the game and your good to go.

        also for you other guys make sure you try clean installs with every patch, this will help locate bugs and conflicts.

        Ja en dat is natuurlijk appels met peren vergelijken. Dingen van vroeger die nu simpel lijken waren toen complex. Alles gaat vooruit dus ook het opsporen en corrigeren van fouten moet mee en in de maat gaan lopen. We moeten allemaal in de maat lopen en allemaal mee. Je doet er niets aan. Een vliegtuig is veel complexer dan een paard en wagen, maar je accepteert het niet als een vliegtuig neerstort vanwege de toename in complexiteit. Dus dat test je heel goed. We moeten alle maal in de maat lopen. Ook jij Cain. In de maat!

    I haven’t noticed any problems after the update.  I think once or twice the audio stuttered, but it wasn’t something I really noticed.  Considering the problems of the original X-Box 360 and some problems with the new SLIM version it makes me wonder if the actual problem is with the code for the game or Microsoft crappy design?  Since I hear the PS3 has similar problems I guess in this case its with the code of the developer.

    anyone else found this?

    basically when ever i place either books on a book shelf, weapons/ armour on weapon racks/ mannequins or place items in chests they just disappear? They are quite obviously there physically   though as when i walk into them or fling stuff at them the sounds of clunking/falling books or whatever can be heard but there’s just no visual sign of them being there…

    does this mean Bethesda will reverse the patch for pc ? i think not. will we see a new patch soon ? i think not, will the Developers comment on how soon a patch will be available ??? I think not. its dev’s like these that give games a bad name, mark my words i’ll be watching names on my games. remember ac2? how about the multi play glitch on space marine at launch. the graphic catch on titan quest, those are from a developer i will not mention but i have a boycott on certain developer’s for their titles.

    We want games with little to no bugs or glitches, it is understandable that there will allways be some issues on release that are not forseen due to tester rig specs, I run an older pc my dfi lanparty amd 5600+ duel core ati 4600 hd 6 ghz ram, I can run ANYTHING. sure i may not get alot of the cool directx 10 thingys but i also run xp, and will not upgrade my os, its not required. a nice i5 laptop with win7 for other things, but i keep porting back to my rig. its solid I can workaround most bugs or glitches, but you can’t work around sloppy code, well not “legally” in some countrys at any rate.

    this is becoming quite the tangent…..

    I commend the modding Community, good job guys!

    I’m done. my 60$ paperweight is put away, its too bad one can’t return pc games. what went from a great game is now…. well you get the point.

    Every problem Bethesda claims this fixes I now have (and I had none of them before)
    Plus, it broke half my modsI had automatic updates turned off, but they forced it down my throat
    Skyrim Script Extender won’t work, either
    or the 4 GB patch
    …and because the 4GB patch doesn’t work, my game lags terribly and then every three minutes (usually less) crashes.  

    And let’s not forget all the other shit Bethesda’s been putting us PC-gamers through.  

    [Modded] Oblivion was better in every aspect but a select few.  Thanks Bethesda.

    Is this the update that broke my game? i ben looking on the internet to see if other people are having the same problem as me, my problem my game won’t read i put in the game all sweet skyrim time than it says its unreadable wtf it wont read my game why it worked before it should work now i cant play it i tryed to contact bethesda or but i cant tell them the problem so thats the reason update 1.2 broke it so it does that well that sucks well i guess i should try to get it back to normal

    • Reply Limit760

      This update has not broken your game. make sure you check your disc to make sure it has not been scratched or had a ring put on it  by the xbox. If it is you might want to get a new xbox console.

    In accordance with my study, from the foreclosure house is provided by a sale, it’s quite with all the borrower to have a remaining unpaid debt within the loan. There are various lenders who make an attempt to have got all fees and liens paid by the next buyer. Alternatively, depending on specified programs, regulations, while stating legislation there may be many loans that are not easily resolved with the exchange of financial loans. Therefore, the duty still falls for the debtor which has received his / her property in foreclosure process. Thank you sharing your notions with this web site.
