Mine didn't update though. Or not that I noticed.

You probably already have the first patch Snowy, sometimes Steam installs them on its own, behind your back. 

Another patch is coming for Skyrim, due week beginning 28th November.

You have to admire Bethesda as a game manufacturer, they don't mess around when it comes to looking after their customers.

Good, good. I'm no longer getting CTDs so am happy.

As for "Fixed rare issue with dragons not properly giving souls after death"...

I have killed 2 X dragons and it says 'soul absorbed' but I have a shout that still doesn't work. I also have gained another word (my fourth shout) but haven't killed a dragon lately. I have 4 shouts and 7 words.

I did have a weird one where a bandit had killed 2 X travellers and when I came upon him he was fighting their horse. The horse was winning but I killed him anyway and it only seemed fitting to steal the horse.  :thumbsup:

I am upto about 14 nirnroots. Not found a quest for 'em yet.

Haha great  :LOL:

Data

HeHe, yeah good one Snowy  :LOL:

I've had a couple of the bugs from the list:

General functionality fixes related to remapping buttons and controls (PC)

And

Fixed rare issue with renaming enchanted weapons and armor

They will be gladly accepted by me  :thumbsup:

I've found something like 25 nirnroots but only have 21 left, been using them for some potions, haven't found a quest for them either but will keep hold of them just in case.   

Up to level 40 now, but I know I have more time on my hands for playing than you Snowy. 

Snowcrash

I'm only level 18  :(

How are you doing with the 3 ring, claw activated doors?

I can't seem to find any clues as to the combination and have been reverting to trial and error, seeing as there are only 27 combinations.

The ones with the rotating stone pillars/plinths always have some clue in the room, even if they're not obvious.

I had a little trouble finding the combinations but then I spotted they are on the underside of the claws, look at the claw closely in your inventory :thumbsup:

Snowcrash

Getting that Red Dwarf 'back to reality' feeling again.

Been watching some of the episodes and it wasn't 'better than life' but 'back to reality' when you first encounter Dwain Dibbly.

Note to Snowy...

There are Nirnroot quests in the game, keep them  ;).


Also, I found a small pool of water that had 3 Nirns together  :o

Snowcrash

Any clue as to where in the 19 sq miles that pool maybe?

I have found 2 on a mountainside, which is weird 'cos they're normally near water. I was running away from a bear at the time.

The pool is just above Evergreen Grove where there is a skills book and a few other goodies, have you found Evergreen Grove? Tell you what, there is a clue attached.  

I found a huge amount of Nirnroots along the top of the map on the coast, just walk a few miles from one end to the other, without getting killed :'(  :D

Data

Well believe it or not there is another Patch coming out for Skyrim.

Patch 1.3 will fix issues such as magic resistance not calculating properly and the rare, amazing backwards flying dragon.

I can't find an exact date for its release but it looks like its only a matter of a few days. 

Snowcrash

Thanks for the map.

I've killed another dragon and got it's soul but still have 2 shouts not working. Hmmmmm!

How many d'u have now?

I have 10 shouts and they all work, could it be that you haven't unlocked the new shouts with a dragon soul, I bet its is because I only recently found that out myself ;D.

Go to the shouts in the menu, look at the bottom of the page, there is an option down there to unlock shouts. :thumbsup:
