Square Enix released yesterday a new update for their acclaimed first person action adventure RPG, Deus Ex: Human Revolution. This update will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client and – among other things – fixes crashes when examining quest items and a specific issue that caused performance degradation for some DX9 players in the 1.2.630 patch.
Square Enix is also investigating all those reports about stuttering and performance problems, as well as any other issues that players may have and will release a full new patch soon that will also include the previously mentioned 3DVision and Surround support.
Here is the changelog for this new patch:
-A specific issue that caused performance degradation for some DX9 players in the 1.2.630 patch has been fixed.
o We are still evaluating further measures to counter stuttering and plan to have a further update for this in another patch.
– Crashes when examining quest items have been fixed.
– Some issues related to switching between fullscreen and windowed mode have been fixed.
– Additional fixes have been made for the TYM medical card. The current fix should also allow users that already have the problem in their savegame to pick up the card again.
– ‘Russian’ text language option now shows up correctly regardless of current text language.
– An issue that may cause the game to have stability issues on certain RAID setups may have been addressed. Even with this patch, if you have a RAID setup, please ensure you have the latest drivers for your controller.
