Dragon Age: Origins Patch

The BioWare Social Network now offers a new patch for Dragon Age: Origins, updating the role-playing game to version 1.04. The download is mirrored on AtomicGamer, Gamer's Hell, The Patches Scrolls, and WorthPlaying. The new version addresses a couple of DLC problems, and also has fixes for the Awakenings DLC. The full patch notes follow.

Dragon Age: Origins 1.04

General Fixes


  • On the PC, sometimes an achievement image and message would not display properly. This has been fixed.


  • Fixed some authorization issues with downloadable content
  • Blood talents from the Grey Warden Base premium downloadable content now work properly in other modules.
  • Installing new downloadable content no longer leaves the ˘Other Campaigns selection grayed-out.


  • Multiple transitions in and out of Fade areas were multiplying the number of visual effects running, which slowed down gameplay. This no longer occurs.
  • Fixed pick-pocketing. Characters were successfully stealing, but not receiving any items.


  • Floating numbers no longer appear over the player's head.
  • Damage statistics are now being updated properly on the Inventory screen when weapons are unequipped.
  • Names with accents and special characters now show up correctly in the "Story So Far" load hints.
  • Switching between Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening no longer resets options to default settings.
  • Selling too many items to the same merchant no longer corrupts the save files.
  • Screenshots were being uploaded automatically on the PC by default on new installations. This no longer happens.


  • Importing a character to a new module from a save game that did not have the hero in the party caused the game to crash. This is fixed.
  • Imported characters to Dragon Age: Awakening now start the game with equipment and clothing on.


  • A number of memory leaks have been fixed, which will reduce the frequency of crashes.
  • Audio drivers have been updated to fix a number of audio-related crashes.


  • Fixed a number of issues with portraits not being uploaded correctly to the BioWare social site.

Dragon Age: Origins Fixes


  • Fixed an issue with the wrong characters appearing in Morrigan's ritual.
  • Players who rescued their party members in the Fade of the Broken Circle plot are no longer forced to fight the sloth demon alone.
  • It is no longer possible for the player to get blocked during gameplay by pursuing both candidates' quests in the Orzammar plot line.

Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening Fixes


  • Fixed a variety of bugs related to party members' approval and personal quests not triggering.
  • Lillith will now only thank the player once at Vigil's Keep after being rescued.
  • During the Assault on Amaranthine, a bug would occasionally make some enemies invincible, which impeded game progress. This no longer happens.
  • Players may now receive notes of appreciation from former love interests.
  • Masterpiece and paragon silverite runes are now weapon runes instead of armor runes.
  • The masterpiece slow rune is now available for purchase from merchant stores.


  • Imported rogue characters now properly detect traps.

I wish they'd undo some of their difficulty nerfs. The game was significantly easier after the 1.03 patch.

They ever fix the memory leak that made load times get longer and longer and longer unless you restarted the game?

THIS is what I wonder aswell. I basically played that game holding down the [Tab] button nonstop to make sure I didn't miss anything. The problem was that the memory leak causes the game to hang for about a second or less when you press the [Tab] button. Apart from that, the overall performance goes down and the loading times were becoming horribly long.
