Fallout 4 Patch Monday

Bethesda Game Studios tweets/Xs about a patch for Fallout 4 that should roll out on Monday. This is to follow up the recent next generation update for the RPG that sort of crapped the bed. Word is the new patch is intended to undo some of the damage from the previous one:
On Monday, May 13 we will be updating Fallout 4 on all platforms.

This update will include new options for graphics and performance settings as well as further fixes and improvements.

Thanks for your continued feedback and support!

No QA process can test as many hardware/software configurations as players will have used within an hour of an update going live. Of all the problems with Bethesda, I don't think them updating their games is up there.

Yeah, they don't need to update their games, they just release them unfinished and let the community fix it. FO4VR is a prime example of this. It's only good with mods.

Yeah except they're clearly not. I don't know about FO4VR but sniping at them for not updating their games on a thread where people are bitching about them for updating their games really illustrates how dumb the whole conversation is.

Lol, no.

People are complaining that their updates are 1. Way too late 2. Break mods years after people rightfully thought no more updates would be forced on them, 3. Barely add anything of worth, and 4. Add more bugs that Bethesda has to fix or more like 5. The community has to fix their game again for them.

Oh weird the loading times are tied to frame rate?
I guess they're trying to amortize loading costs by spreading across frames but always do a fixed amount of work per frame?
Super weird.

I had auto-update turned off on my laptop, but apparently it was still turned on, on my desktop.

So my FO4 was borked for a bit, but the Script Extender team worked extremely hard and updated it for this most recent patch, most everything seemed to have been working the past few days. Looks like another waiting period starting Monday.

I will try that Load Accelerator though, interesting. I had never looked it up, crazy that it's tied to FPS. Not sure how people are playing FO4 over 60 fps though, it seems to break so many other aspects of the game.

for sure load accelerator is needed because animations and physics and other things dont work well >60 fps but if you play at 60 fps as you said the loading times are atrocious
load accelerator is patch agnostic so it will work with any version of fallout 4 because it lives in d3d

i havent tried raw input, i may try it but i kinda feel the controls are ok? idk

I truly am baffled how many folks just blindly said "yes, I will install this update as soon as it drops.. what POSSIBLY could go wrong with the track record of BGS..." then turn around and are shocked it was a dumpster fire or/and half their mods broke. How these people a week before it dropped didn't disable steam updates, launching it via MO, perplexes me. What I did and I am playing it with all my mods without interruption. I was thinking days before I can't be the only one doing this, I have to imagine MOST people are. I clearly gave the gaming community far too much credit when it comes to being proactive, common sense. Seeing the gaming community just unload a entire clip into their own foot and their reactions being the poster child of un-selfaware is painful to watch honestly.

I, for one, like that more eyes are now on Fallout games due to the series. Shining a light on Bethesda that strongly feels good man.

I feel like someone should do like a documentary on Fallout and how dope Van Buren was going to be and how we got Fallout 3 instead.

Man imagine if Fallout had ended up with a company that really cared - look how awesome Baldur's Gate 3 is.

BG3 probably cost 70 million. Starfield 120 million.
Fallout 1, inflation adjusted, cost 5 million.

Shame Fallout London will presumably be impacted again.

Shame on you, Bethesda. Releasing on a Monday all but guarantees that your QA staff are forced to work over the weekend. You haven't learned anything.

Is anyone surprised Bethesda doesn't believe in even basic software testing?

Unfucking is always appreciated. The date does not bode well for this patch though. At least it's not a Friday...
