That might end up being something that might have to be done in a second patch or possibly by the green team and red team (nvidia and ati).

I wonder if this will be on steam at the same time or if steam users will have to wait.

I'm guessing it will be available at the same time, or if not...then sometime tomorrow.

Eithier you have not played the game,or you are just another child making use of Mommy and Daddy's internet connection.Which is it ?

As I stated the other day,the quality of posts and posters has dropped off
a cliff on this site,in recent years.

Great fix list.

I no longer have the game installed, but if for some reason I feel like playing it again, this patch will fix any issues I had. It was very stable and bug free for me.

The Vsync and Refresh rate issues in DirectX 10 were really irritating. Other than that I didn't have any significant problems with the game (other than how repetitive it was :p).

I've played the game three times through so far. First time killing all the little sisters and the second time saving them all and the third saving them all again and trying to spend all my Adam.

BTW...I'm 24 years old and have been gaming since the days of Commander Keen.

SO...What in the hell is a glint toggle?

If you're talking about Usable Object Highlight or Item Shimmer, that can be turned off in the Gameplay Options...something that has ALWAYS been there. Turning it off does NOT turn it off on Mission Critical items or objects, but for everything else like ammo, eve, u-invent stuff, and so on.

"Note: Objects or characters which are part of your current mission Goal will still retain a gold glow regardless of these settings."

I'm guessing he meant the mission related objects that glow even when the setting is set to disable.

- Added support for a walk toggle keybind

OMG, this is really the biggest thing to me. In my book this game is now offically a good PC game and not just good port. How they could put out a game that looks this good and not give you a way to slow down and look at things is beyond me but I'm really glad they've added it in. DLing now.

I still haven't opened my 360 version of the game. I wonder if now I'm better off returning it for the PC version.

Excellent patch, to bad I have already finished the game, and there's no "open world" option to continue exploring it. They should have added some side-quests or missions.

muaddib, thought you could use train to go back to different levels? (edit, never mind just re-read your post)

anyway, i recently logged in 360 and bioshock patch is available now. wow widescreen does make a different. you get to see more and it's awesome. :D

How come i do not see any fix for the random crashes? Or is it fixed in the changelog but its written in a different language.

What about the jerky physics that are capped at ~30fps? Doesn't sound like those are fixed... That was the most important to me.

lmao yeah real good patch I can't even change resolution properly with this.

Game freezes crashes etc.. and when u turn V Sysc off same ..

This has been there since it launched, oh well looks like it goes back on the shelf until the next 2k patching attempt.
