F.E.A.R. 3 Patch

Steam News announces the release of a new patch to automatically update F.E.A.R. 3, the horror-themed shooter sequel. Included is a fix for a vexing juddering problem at framerates above 30 FPS. Here's word:

Issues addressed in this version:

  • Stuttering and jerky movement at frame rates above 30 fps is fixed!
  • Steam voice communication "push-to-talk" option is now fully supported.
  • 4-player voice chat should no longer have audio drop-outs.
  • A rare bug that would cause enemies to stop spawning in Contractions is now fixed.
  • The game will now prefer Steam cloud storage over local file system storage.
  • Network connection reliability has been improved.
  • Support for wider than 16x9 aspect ratio displays has been added to support users with non-standard display devices and spanned multi-monitor displays like AMD Eyefinity and NVIDIA Surround.
  • An "options.cfg" file has been added to the F.E.A.R. 3 install directory for advanced user customization and troubleshooting. Included in this file are options to extend the FOV on narrow aspect ratio displays, reduce or remove motion blur, and to override driver-default settings for full-screen refresh rate, overscan, letterboxing, etc.

Yes, so far it's been completely mediocre, that's not even adding the fact the FoV is a fucking nightmare for anyone who has the slightest sensitivity to getting sick and the stuttering issues which plague even high end systems.
You know, if I had a peanut allergy, I'd probably find out if food I was about to eat had peanuts in it before I just dove right in. Perhaps you should do the same with video games.
