 Post subject: Xbox 360 got a patch.

Missing since: 06 Sep 2010

Yesterday i played Downpour and it gave me a 2mb patch i don't no the full extent of the patch but it can't be that good why.

I loaded a save from the monastery/orphan house and right where the fps problems kicks in happened again (floor where the girl is sitting on the chair).
As for out doors i don't no haven't had a change to play there yet

one more problem i think the patch has made is texture streaming seems worse you no when you walk in a room and the base textures are showing not the final textures. It could be me or the patch or the fact last time i played Downpour
i had it installed on a hard drive.

Yeah, I downloaded the patch yesterday and spent today playing through the game in its entirety to test it out, completing all the side-quests as I went.

The patch seems to have done nothing really. I thought it had at first but, after a while, when you're running around the streets, the stuttering is still very evident. Entering and using the subway is still awful as well.

Bit of a bummer really :(

Welp....
I have gone through Downpour three times. I love it & find it to be very playable, although the stuttering & glitches drag-down the experience.
I hope the PS3 patch is more substantial.

If not, I can live with it. Still though...

A patch for a Silent Hill game that does jack shit? knock me over with a feather

The second patch for the PS3 HD Collection actually does alot. Downpour just may need another one, even if I never had issues with the vanilla game.

I guess Konami decided to balance the karma for not releasing a patch for the HD Collection on Xbox by screwing PS3 owners over on the patch for Downpour?

"In a few weeks." I'll believe it when I see it.

^ I thought the same thing actually when I first realized it was currently 360-only :)

If they're making it even, they had better offer a free game as well! Hehe.

With Konami a few weeks means several months.

Or a cancellation after a few weeks of waiting.

I think Konami just needs to scuttle Downpour and proceed as if it never existed.

Bring on the Kojima SH game!

Well, at least if Kojima gets to make a game we will never need a patch, you can't bug up cutscenes.

I'm still confused on the Kojima topic...will he be participating in the new game or not?

It seems like there are already plans for a Silent Hill 7, considering the Konami Exec asking him to work on it. Won't be too long before an announcement, I suppose. (Hope to God it's a female character this time, though).

I'm happily surprised. Did it fix the mini freezing?

I haven't tried it yet, but I'm about to start playing.
I'll report back with my personal experience.

UPDATE: Ok, so I've played through the starting areas of Downpour and have just arrived into town, which is where the framerate/lag problems were worst for me (in the streets).
I can say that the patch has helped. In my three prior playthrough's of Downpour un-patched, the game would consistently lag outdoors on the streets if I was moving.

With it patched, I ran around a few blocks and through some backyards as well as fought a couple monsters & stuck around for a storm; and it did almost no lagging. Yay! :)
Before the lagging severity was a 8/10 for me, now it's a 3/10.

So no, the patch didn't wipe away the lag completely. The game will freeze up for a split-second during an autosave, & it still lags occasionally, albeit very rarely in comparison to the un-patched game.

As of now I'm happy about it. I hope it retains this level smoothness throughout.

Glad to see it got a patch. From a design standpoint Downpour is my favorite in the series but the poor optimization has kept me from playing it as much as the others.

*Sigh* The game just froze on me...
Whether it was the patch's fault or coincidence, I don't know... but prior to the patch Downpour never froze on me throughout my three playthrough's.
:(

I think the patch actually made my game a bit worse. I've noticed a bit more lag and far more texture pop in than before.

The patch done nothing for my game. I think it made mine slightly worse actually, just like KiramidHead's.
