I am, that's how I've been playing since day one. I have it hooked up to my 54 Panasonic Plasma so I can veg out for hours in my 'video game chair.'

Wow... great job on the update.

I don't have any mods of any sort installed... and now my game won't launch at all

Game developers wonder why people pirate games? If I pirated it, I'd at least be able to play the damn thing. Instead I've dropped $60 on a game that won't even launch.

What a bunch of

ackkk! Seriously? I haven;t played since last night... what should I do? I play launching from the .exe will I be okay or will it f*k with my .exe if I launch outside of Steam?

I'll copy my .exe before I launch it tonight...

Would launching steam and setting to offline mode prevent the update?

I think it would, but just to be safe I actually added a rule to Windows' firewall blocking all access by steam.exe.

Not going online with Steam again until somebody fixes this steam-ing pile of crap. (and I wouldn't be surprised if the fix comes from outside Steam/Bethesda)

Damn I love this community! They're all over the problem like rash. And they have a solution:

http://skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=985

They ported the Fallout NV 4GB launcher for use with Skyrim, and they did it in under six hours.

Edit: Seems to be a work in progress. Based on Nexus and Bethsoft forum posts, it works for a few people, but not the majority.

Edit2: if you grab the fnv4gb.exe and rename the sk4gb_helper.dll to fnv4gb_helper.dll, it works. I just did a bunch of outdoor travel and fast travel with no crashes. If I use the default launcher, it insta-crashes on fast travel.

Mine got patched earlier today. I copied my original exe file back into the skyrim folder, applied the memory fix and it ran fine.

Not sure why people even bother with the memory fix. I don't use it and I haven't experienced any CTDs. I've logged in more than 40 hours.

As for the FXAA, I used it and thought it looked good until I went back to good ol AA and TAA. FXAA affects the quality of the textures. With it on, it felt like I was playing on the Xbox 360 in 720p.

I can run the vanilla game all day long also, but with the tweaks I've done you couldn't run it an hour without the LAA flag.

People bother with it because it works, and has been known to work on previous games in the series, as well as the Fallout games.

With the vanilla game, I could play 2-2.5 hours and then CTD. It was almost like clockwork. Once the LAA change was made, the CTD's stopped. The game ran six hours that night before I shut it down to get some shuteye.
