Skyrim Update 1.3 is Live, Fixes Y-Axis Mouse Issues

Bethesda has released patch 1.3 for the PC version of Skyrim on Steam, and it promises, among other things, to resolve the issues many PC gamers have had with the vertical and horizontal mouse axes behaving at different sensitivities. It also fixes some of the problems patch 1.2 created. The patch has been submitted to Sony and Microsoft, so PS3 and X-Box 360 players won’t have to wait much longer after the PC guinea pigs confirm that 1.3 doesn’t break anything else.

Here are the full patch notes:

Update 1.3 Notes (all platforms unless specified)

  • General stability improvements
  • Optimize performance for Core 2 Duo CPUs (PC)
  • Fixed Radiant Story incorrectly filling certain roles
  • Fixed magic resistances not calculating properly
  • Fixed issue with placing books on bookshelves inside player purchased homes
  • Fixed dragon animation issues with saving and loading
  • Fixed Y-look input to scale correctly with framerate

Bethesda is also planning on rolling out official support for 4-Gigabyte Tuning next week on the PC, so we can stop downloading different Large Address Aware mods.

First issue for me. Some sounds are missing, there was music in a dungeon, but when i approached a dragon wall there wasnt the usual sound.. Then when i left the dungeon there was no music in the game.

When will they release a patch that doesn’t break more stuff?

@Hope They’ll release a patch that doesn’t break more stuff when you quit finding new problems. Games are never 100% correct, just don’t look for glitches. Unless you’re one of the many trying to run Skyrim on a computer, then just go get a new computer or switch to 360. From what I hear theres barely any problems on the 360.

I used to update games, then I took an arrow in the knee

Seems to be running pretty well for me. I had a occasional quit to desktop during autosave. It seems to be gone now. I haven’t really noticed any new problems, but then again I never saw a backwards-flying dragon either.

For people with computers with more than 3GB of memory google skyrimnexus 4gb It uses more virtual memory increasing performance. If you don’t know how to check (your RAM) you probably do not have more so don’t worry about it.

After patch 1.3 my TestV will no longer start as it complains about the wrong cd key.
And replacing it with the old one no brings problems of the mouse no properly working and followers being very slow in attacking.
