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.

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 ).

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.
