Any sign of 1.3 patch for 360?

#1 Posted by Syphous (170 posts) -

I ask because I haven't patched Skyrim to 1.2. After hearing about all the issues I figured it would be best to keep 1.1 and just play with my xbox unplugged from the internet. But it's been about a week since 1.3 came out on PC so I'm guessing it's going to hit 360 at any moment. So I need some nice person to let me know if 1.3 is out yet or not on 360.

Thanks in advance!

I thought the second patch was out for the 360. I downloaded it and seems to be ok, installed to the hard drive without any issues.

its not available at all yet friend, I have been pursuing this patch since release of 1.2 which I updated before reading the reviews on this dreadful patch . 1.3 needs to hurry up, im bored without playing skyrim.

You got 1.2

Damn, I meant to skip the 1.2 patch... oh well

Rumors are the patch was delayed because of the 360 dash issues

I'm doing the same thing, been declining patch 1.2 and playing offline for a week now. I wonder if many others are doing that and if it is making a dent in the XBL most played games weekly list or not? I'm not planning on taking 1.3 for a day or two as well until I hear reports of how that one stacks up. The game is playing fine for me with my current patch *knock on wood* so I want to be careful about taking something new.

At this point I have the thieves guild quests and a few Daedra artifacts to collect and I'll be done with the meat of the game.

I think I am experiencing different effects of the patch. Before I would fast travel and every so often, I would encounter a dragon but now, I have to go out and look for them at their hideouts or through the main quest.

It's probably waiting for approval for Microsoft, and as far as I know the company don't know when it will be approved so I assume they don't want to say anything about it before it's ready.

What about PS3?

#11 Posted by Syphous (170 posts) -

@TepiDDeatH: Who cares?! Just kidding, lol. I'm not sure but I would think it would be out a day or two on PS3 before it comes out on 360 since Microsoft is notoriously slow on these things. So maybe its out on PS3 already?

Has anyone heard anything as of today?

Just got patched. Initial testing on my summoned Storm Atronach suggest that this is the magical resistance patch (resistances work again).

Just got patched for me as well! Finally!

I'm still not getting the 1.3 patch. This is the one that supposed to fix the backwards dragons, right? I took that quest from Farkas to kill a dragon with him, and of course it was a backwards dragon. Now I've been stuck with him for hours and he's pissing me off. I'm trying to do Dark Brotherhood quests, and Farkas CONSTANTLY talks to me and interrupts my conversations because of my bounty. It's driving me insane and I want this patch! ...rant over.

I just got a patch and the magic resistance has been fixed for me! 

#17 Posted by blueinferno (448 posts) -

Just got the patch and FINALLY got rid of Farkas! I am so happy right now!

Are you guys who have gotten patched PC/360/PS3?

#19 Posted by Arker101 (1474 posts) -

@j3ffro919: 1.3 fixed Magic Resistance for me on 360.

I'm throwing caution to the wind and updating. WOOOO.

#21 Posted by Enigmatical (135 posts) -

Updated this morning, been looking forward to this patch! Hopefully this'll tide me over until January when they start fixing all these broken quests (and quest items) I've got.

I've got 1.2 and so far it hasn't given me any trouble...no backwards dragons yet

Reports confirmed: 1.3 released on Xbox 360! No word yet as to where the PS3 patch is.

I've played on 1.1 since launch. I patched it and when I looked through my inventory it was easy to spot texture improvements. I wandered around outside a little while and I swear I could spot better textures on some parts of the ground and on some tree stumps. Weapons too. I've noticed a -slight- increase in popups and framerate hiccups but nothing gamebreaking at all.

That was a very long process. I wonder if MS took the time to check the game this time. Since the outcry for 1.2 (Which came out much faster)

Let me know if 1.3 has any issues, I'm still playing 1.1.

There supposedly is one issue 
 
Say you have 2 handed to 100 if you enchant to give it 5 more. It instead SUBTRACTS that 5 so you have 95.

#29 Posted by BasketSnake (1199 posts) -

Just looking around a room is not as smooth as on 1.1 for me.

So, this only affects skill enchantments?

Thats what ive heard from PC people who have had the update for a while now. Aside from the normal little bugs and bugs that only effect a few people.

The real question is what patch 1.3 broke now.

#33 Posted by adoggz (2067 posts) -

Is the texture install bug on da tree sitty fixed? i heard that 1.2 didn't actually fix it but didnt look into that much cause 1.2 was fucked for lots of other reasons.
