Waaay back in June, the developers had this to say:

"We're working on one (patch), but we don't have an exact release date yet." Chris Avellone told GameBanshee, while Feargus Urquhart was more specific: "We wanted to release something fairly quickly based upon some feedback we were getting. I think [SEGA] wanted to take a different approach by gathering more information over a longer period of time and provide a patch then. That's what we're figuring out right now...."

My question is, where is that patch? We're in november now, and as good as the game is, and it really is, it could definitly use one. Even more so, it deserves one!

So guys, please, enlighten us! Are you still working on a patch, or is Fallout: New Vegas taking all your time?

It's never coming, is it?

There is a (not really advertised) US only patch for the game. Considering SEGA's attitude towards it, that's probably all we're going to get. And yeah, that's sad.

Apparently still no changelog though :x

There is a changelog, it's called patch.txt and lands in main folder.

What's more, the very first line of a changelog:

VERSION 1.1
-----------
- To resolve activation issues, PC copy protection has been removed.

Very nice of them, and it also shows that SEGA really doesn't care about AP anymore - to remove DRM in half a year after release? (Not that I'm complaining about removal :x)

Could you post the entire changelog?

It's as if the people at Obsidian were doing the patch on their off time and that Sega made the minimum as far as distributing it go :x I mean, no announcement, nothing!

The changelog ISN'T complete (Other things were also fixed)

ALPHA PROTOCOL
==========================================================================
This file contains the log of the fixes and changes made to Alpha Protocol
since its initial release.

VERSION 1.1
-----------
- To resolve activation issues, PC copy protection has been removed.
- In Moscow during the assault of Brayko's Mansion, the player could get
into a situation where a door would not be openable preventing progression
through the rest of the level. This has been fixed.
- In Taipei, during the Stop the Assassination mission, the user can fall
out of the world if they reload the "Exit Gardens" checkpoint. There was
also a problem where if the player backtracked, part of the level might
not load in properly. This has also been fixed.
- In the same mission, a problem with subtitles was corrected.
- In the museum in Rome, the game could crash when using Focused Aim to
kill the NPC holding Madison in the elevator.
- Bosses could get stuck in an accelerated mode when Fury wears off.
- Chainsot was exploitable to slow time and get critical headshots without
consuming its cooldown.

Good to see it finally released I suppose.

Now I just pray it won't blow my install up next time I replay the game, hehe.

Does the patch work with the Steam version or automatically update?

so how can I tell if the patched installed properly since I don't see version listed anywhere when I start the game?


EDIT: checked in the
\steam\steamapps\common\alpha protocol\Binaries\APGame.exe and it says 1.1.0.0 so i guess it worked.

Damn, I hoped in AI improvements and more gadgets for our weapons...

However, what about this 1.1 patch? Does it work with the European Version or is only for US-Users?
I mean: is this patch a new or or it's the same small [almost useless] patch released some months ago?

Wow all these months and that is the most they can come up with for a patch. Shamefully underwhelming. It's sad to see a game with such potential basically neglected to death by it's publisher.

I wish someone had managed a bit more noise on the removal of the DRM as I was waiting for that info before buying.

There's a US version (think it's ~the same as the old one but with an installer + readme) and a separate Euro/ RoW/ DD version.

Will the patch come to Steam or do we have to install it manually (which is quite unusual for the Steam version of a game)?

No idea, but I'm running the EU STEAM version at the moment and manually installed the patch. It's working fine so far and it seems to have solved some problems (like the camera being wonky without the ini tweaks).
