So have you tried this 4GB fix? Thoughts?

BTW anyone who's getting the crash to desktop notice their video card running really hard, along with getting hot?

I have no video issues, just notice the card really running hard and getting hot.

Thanks

I'm running it. I only played it for about an hr with the new fix. No CTD. I honestly couldn't BELIEVE that Steam and Bethesda did that with the LAA.exe!

I've had my MSI afterburner running on my other monitor while playing the game. honestly, I've not noticed anything strange when a CTD happens. Temps are normal. Card 1 running about 75 c and Card 2 running about 68 with the fans on 50% Work load is split between the two at about 60%/40% with card 1 getting the workout. I'm running the latest Nvidia driver.

I have also tried the patch, and been playing for 7 hours strait, and got no crashes and all seemed fine, my card runs a bit hot, but it usually runs that temps on big games

Yeah my card normally runs hot as well. I'm just curious to see if anyone noticed a pattern of the card running extra hard, or getting a little hotter than normal when the game CTD's.

I've got no issues with the card itself or issues with games. Just wondering if Skyrim itself is pushing the card a little harder than need be.

Well i think when they release a few oficial patch updates,they will fix that issue aswell, cause allot of isues need to be fixed, and i think they can improve performance and graphics, while letting the card work less ( i don't know how, but they did that with the witcher2, where the graphics and performance got a big boost, and somehow alowed the game to play on normal rigs just fine...)

Yeah I think you're right. I know a lot of people complain about the graphics but some of the graphical effects do push the system, and the fact the the game is CPU bound doesn't help either. They really do need to put out a performance patch.

That said, the only performance issues I have is the slight stuttering in some areas and the occaisonal CTD, other that that the game runs just fine for me.

These are my settings.....

There is a mod out, that makes the nightime even more beautifull, i have it installed, basically it makes the sky allot more colourfull.

And i dont want to spoil anything, but we all know that you get dragons in the game, but you also get vampires and warewolves! Now if you allready knew that, i just like to say i finnaly " wolved out " lol

I just ran for 38 minutes after a gost called the headless horsemen, while running i got attacked by an undead elk and i was on foot, its not so easy keeping up with someone when they have a horse and you dont!

Been playing a while,saw allot of weird stuff, was flying a bit at one point, but seeing a gostly horse with a headless rider was still verry surprising! Well done skyrim!

Oh and i once said the blood dragon was powerfull....try fighting a elder dragon its close to impossable!

Sometimes dragons seem to ignore me ive seen several on my journeys and as i much as a try to get their attention with a spell i get nothing. This is my pure mage run through and i thought they would have come after me by now. i remember on the warrior file i lost i was hunted by dragons non stop, it became an issue i moved to a different hold lol.

Discuss: Bulletstorm
So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
