Fans of the post-apocalyptic shooter Rage: Campaign Edition have a new patch to install, courtesy of Aspyr Media.
Version 1.0.1 improves texture streaming performance, as well as stability with loading of saved games, and includes latest PC patch code, according to the release notes.
The PC patch code in particular holds some important fixes. For example, it tends to a crash that would sometimes occur when loading saved games, and it addresses some problems with the Quick Save feature.
The list continues with some general performance enhancements, a fixed crash from using SIMD optimized memcpy with a PBO pointer that is not 16-byte aligned, and fixed progression in Dead City where players could not advance through a sliding door on their way to the defibrillator upgrade.
Other changes include fixed CPU feature detection, fixed lack of texture detail on parts of the screen at high resolutions (due to limited feedback analysis buffer), re-enabled UBOs, adjustment to default VDM values for balance, and fixed shadows on ATI video cards.
