Master Dahvernas Posted April 18, 2005 Share Posted April 18, 2005 I realize patching a game isn't as easy as 1-2-3, since patching one thing may damage something else... However, The Sith Lords has 19 pages of Bugs (see Bugs Thread) and some of them are more prominent than others across all video cards and hardware specs. Here are some of the ones I think should be fixed in the next technical patch (or patches): Frame Rate Optimization: I know this may depend heavily on graphics card (Nvidia; ATI) and drivers, and some say the game now runs better than ever after this first patch... But there are major areas where the frame rates still drop to single digits and become uplayable: -Peragus Fuel Depot (w/T3) -Peragus Mining Tunnels -Dantooine Also, while I this isn't a First Person Shooter where you need 100+ FPS to be playable... But this game doesn't even deliver close to 30 FPS on a consistent basis which is the bare minimum for smooth, fluid, non-jerky gameplay and that IS a problem I feel needs to be addressed sooner than later because it also effects cut-scenes and in-game dialogues with NPCs. Scripting Errors Most of these are Quest/Storyline and Trigger Event/Sequence related. Most notable are: -Telos Academy (can't leave; cut-scenes don't play) -Red Eclipse on board Ebon Hawk (they never appear) -Invitation from Exchange (Message never arives) -Returning to Dantooine Second/Third time - This is a big one in that if you leave Dantooine and return a second time (or more than this) and you've killed or want to gather the Jedi Masters... The game crashes and or just locks up and cut-scenes and other things aren't triggered properly. This is a game-stopping bug (like the others) that prevent a player from finishing the gmae even after reloading a save. Gameplay and Other Technical Bugs -Defense Bonuses not stacking -Upgraded items disappearing from work bench -Party Member AI Attack Behavior doesn't work (Bao-Dur is the worst) -PC just stands there even after you qeue up multiple combat feats/moves -Party Members standing around and not joining PC in battle -Etc, etc. What do you guys (forum posters) think needs to be addressed ASAP before anything else?
