NFS The Run PC patch available

Postby Hydro_PT » 31 Jan 2012, 18:32

Need For Speed: The Run was released in November 2011, and while the consoles have already seen a couple of patches, the PC patch has been delayed... until now. EA has announced that the first PC patch is finally available, and to compensate PC players for the delay, they are also giving the Signature Edition Booster Pack for free alongside the patch! This DLC adds 9 heavily customized (both visual and performance) cars.

Here is the list of fixes:

- 30 FPS cap is disabled when v-sync is set to OFF in advanced display settings;
- Miscellaneous fixes for gamepad and peripheral support;
- Tweaked reset behavior for a number of tracks in The Run where resets seemed too close to the main race route;
- When players go off track, they will be reset back onto the track instead of at the last checkpoint. Crashes will still result in a reset to the last checkpoint;
- Fixed issue where Autolog split time HUD would sometimes disappear after a vehicle reset;
- Updated car images will now be displayed in Challenge Series loading screen;
- Added Quick Match option from multiplayer menu;
- Players now ha! ve the option to mute VOIP of other players in multiplayer sessions;
- Reduced unrealistic behaviors when multiplayer opponents drive off-road or collide with world objects;
- Fixed issue where sometimes icons wouldn’t display for playgroup members in the intermission screen;
- Animated recently completed solo and group objectives in the intermission screen;
- Display active objectives in the pre-race loading screen;
- Tabs will now auto-cycle during the intermission screen, manually tabbing between screens will disable the auto cycling;
- Countdown timers in MP will flash orange in the last 5 seconds;
- Will still display session rewards for players that finish the last race in a session after all other players have left the session;
- Hide the empty race results and session standing tabs in the intermission screen when joining a race in progress;
- Autolog Gallery: fix to extend scroll bar for entire length of gallery;
- Autolog News: fixed alignment of news list and top! of news image;
- Autolog Friends: now displays whether a friend is online, joinable or offline in player badge;
- Autolog Friends: added option to join a friend’s multiplayer session from the friends list, if friend is in a joinable session;
- Autolog Photo: now displays the proper error message when a photo upload fails due to being out of space;

New cars:

- Puppet Chevy El Camino SS
- Fatlace Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R
- Venom Nissan 370Z
- Scoundrel Subaru Impreza WRX STi
- Victory BMW M3 E30 Sport Evolution
- Nicolas Mazda RX-7
- Mega Nissan GT-R (R35)
- Falken Porsche 911 GT3
- Conroy Ford GT

Indeed, but I guess the damage it's already done. I have played the game with the patch, now it actually "flows" better but it still lacks TONS of other things, modes, and proper garage's just boring to be honest :/
