Rockstar anuncia el primer parche

Rockstar ha anunciado en los foros oficiales de GTA IV que está trabajando en un parche que estará disponible "en unos días":

We are working on making a patch available in the next few days. Since Grand Theft Auto IV is a Games For Windows – Live game the patch must be certified by Microsoft before release. The patch is already at Microsoft and we expect a speedy approval.
The patch contains a variety of fixes including:

-A fix to the crash after legal screen that some German customers were reporting.
-Numerous improvements to the video editor: Smarter naming of videos, improved rendering quality, better fx during replays
-Fix to bowling while using certain sensitive mice
-Fix for ATI 1900 shadows
-Overall savings to memory
-Graphic improvements to particle systems and mirrors
-Multiplayer character settings are preserved
-Support for DirectInput controllers. Note: The current hack way of supporting these controllers may not work with the improved functionality. So we recommend you remove the hack before upgrading to the patch.



Le puedo asegurar a Rockstar por experiencia que el primer problema de la lista no es exclusivo de clientes alemanes...

De todos modos, no me creo eso de "unos días", ya que, como aseguran en el post, el parche tiene que ser certificado por Microsoft. Y sa se sabe que las cosas de palacio van despacio.
