DA:I Patch 3 for PC

A bit surprised that they did not address game play issues for the PC.

I hope that getting a controller will improve things for me.  I am guessing it will be another month before we see another patch.

I wonder how long it will take me to relearn how to play the game with a controller.  I will probably start a different character to do the learning.

Any chance of a copy/paste of patch notes for those of us stuck on blocked work computers? :D

What "gameplay issues for PC" were you hoping to see addressed?

And yes, it plays immeasurably better with controller. And this from someone who generally hates controllers.

Keyboard mouse is BROKEN.  It needs to be fixed.  Game play took a huge step back from DA2.

Hopefully I will enjoy it more with a controller.

As for the patch notes:

=============================

Dragon Age?: Inquisition 1.03

=============================

From a development standpoint, Patch 3 was a small, bug-fix only patch to address some high-frequency issues affecting the majority of our players.

General

Added key binding that allows players to walk.

Added mouse cursor scaling.

Fixed issue that could result in the mouse getting stuck in mouse-look mode when players alt-tabbed out of the game in full-screen mode.

Fixed display bars to correctly reflect items that alter maximum health.

Single-Player

Changed party banter system to be less random to prevent extra-long periods where no conversations would occur.

Fixed issue that could result in one of Dorian?s conversations not being available for some players.

Fixed issue that could result in a cutscene not firing for Dorian?s plot when players enter the Gull and Lantern.

Fixed issue that could result in Sera?s Verchiel plot being broken.

Fixed issue with the demon that could spawn during Solas?s personal quest.

Changed Tactical Camera so that it no longer re-centers when the player changes party members.

Fixed exploit that allowed for infinite influence.

Fixed issue that allowed players to exploit their gold value in single-player mode.

Fixed allied mage AI so they did not dispel targets that the player had frozen.

Fixed issue that caused the bar displaying armor rating to not update correctly for crafted gear.

Fixed issue that caused extra potions granted by items to be lost when players return to Skyhold.

Fixed issue that caused Mind Blast?s upgrade, Fortifying Blast, to not provide additional barrier.

Fixed issue that could result in the opt-in conversation UI continuing to be displayed if players opted out very quickly as the UI was starting to be displayed.

Fixed issue that could result in the world map being permanently displayed in the Storm Coast.

Fixed issue that could result in being unable to switch party members after looting.

Fixed issue that could result in party members not following orders to revive a party member in Tactical Camera mode.

Fixed issue where changing multiplayer match settings would take effect without confirming changes.

Patch looks pretty good. Lots of fixes for specific things I've seen.

Yay!

(especially happy about the fix for disappearing potions, as that one made my grenade belts worthless)

Maybe it isn't a bug but I've been hunting for mosaic tiles, notable the one in the hinterland - the Fall.  I have 11 of 12 pieces and I only have the 11th because of googling the location.  It's above a cave and is clearly not a "real" place to be visiting.  The 12th is MIA.  Many believe it's in the Wolf Hollow stuck in some wall or other.  It would be nice to finish one of the mosaics, and clearly I pick a bad one to go after :)
