Reactions following Skyrim 1.5.26 update
PC update 1.5.26 for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is seen to be a lightweight fix, although it does rectify problems with plug-ins causing crashes and we are interested to see what the reactions are involving the last patch. Available now, the 1.5.26 update should be automatically downloaded through Steam and restarting your client may be of assistance if you’re experiencing issues.
The trouble with crashing is a PC problem and the other fixes are mainly cosmetic yet console gamers should expect patch 1.5 soon for the Xbox 360 and PS3. This information is documented on VG24/7 along with an amusing reconstruction video of Skyrim by College Humor that has had a lot of attention. In response to the 1.5.26 update, some gamers are airing their views about the 1.5 patch on the official Bethesda Blog and although the recent updates have had some bug fixes, there are other issues that need to be focused on.
In the 1.5.26 patch attention has been paid to fixing issues with frequency of first person kill cameras, crashing when loading certain plugins, problems with the sun not appearing properly after fast travel and the underwater effects should now display clearly. On Bethesda’s site, some gamers have been expressing their feelings about the 1.5, there are a few cases where some are experiencing an extremely low framerate; other fixes have been asked for like one for the dialog UI for mouse users since day one, as the mouse cursor location is being ignored and users are ending up with the wrong choice.
Problems with a strange shadow glitch has been witnessed with the introduction of 1.5 and other bugs are mentioned like the occasional kill that gets back up and returns to a combat stance while their corpses are being looted. Just over a week ago, we wrote about the 1.5 patch notes giving our readers the opportunity to look through them and inform us what may be missing, and there are some highlighted that have been talked about for a while.
With plenty of issues fixed there will always be news of more and while the latest patch seems to be a lightweight fix we expect more feedback as far as new and older issues that have not been resolved. Whether you play Skyrim on the consoles or on the PC we are interested to hear of any problems you may have experienced.
