Patch 1.4 has been released for the Playstation 3 version of Skyrim and finally addresses the problems people were having with lag that made the game near unplayable. Most players are saying that the patch fixes all of their lag problems while others are saying that ti did little to nothing at all. Bethesda has looked over their forums and posted a response giving two tips to follow when applying the new patch.
“The 1.4 patch for Skyrim includes many performance-enhancing updates for the PlayStation 3. A few important things to note:
1. To ensure the fastest jump in performance after applying the patch, be sure to first create a new manual save by entering the save menu and choosing “save game.” You should then restart your PlayStation 3 before continuing to play.
2. If you encounter strange behaviour while playing immediately following application of the patch, do not be alarmed – this is a temporary effect of Skyrim scripts correcting themselves after the update. Once this process runs its course, be sure to make a new save and restart your PlayStation 3.”
Be sure to attempt these steps as you apply the new patch and hope that it fixes your problems. If not then be sure to head over to the Bethesda forums and post your problem there because Bethesda has stated that they look “at forums (including our own), wikis, blog comments, YouTube videos, and more.”
