The Saboteur PC Patch Update #2 and ETA
We have been working tirelessly to address the current reported PC issues for The Saboteur over the last few weeks & I am happy to announce that we will be releasing a BETA patch* this coming Friday to address ATI and Nvidia graphics card compatibility issues. The initial testing of the BETA Patch has rendered promising results.. For those who do not want to wait for the final graphics card patch to release, we want to give you the opportunity to be part of the testing process and therefore the chance to have some issues you may be experiencing resolved sooner rather than later.
I'd still like to know where you work if EA closed Pandemic? Didn't everyone get made redundant in that big restructure EA just did?
Anti-Skub, it seems that Sledge70 is also known as Sledgehammer70 at EA's forum for The Saboteur.. He's listed as "Community Manager"/Moderator for The Saboteur's forum...
Either way, this same information was posted at "The Sabouteur News" section at EA's forum.
Sledge70, thanks for the update and efforts from you guys!
pandemic as a studio might be gone but i'm sure there are some stragglers that ea keeps around to fix bugs.
My machine spec. is: AMD 7750+(dual core) clocked at 3.1GHz, 4GB(2x2GB) KHX Black Edition 1066MHz CL5, GA 9600HP 1GB, Audigy 4. I can play this game quite normal at resolution 1280x1024@85Hz and everything on max under Windows XP SP2, but sometimes it happend that freezing. For example, I've just finished one mission, and when I finished and return to the same character they didn't talk. First time this problem, and at higher resolution like 1600x1200 and everything at max, but beside that everything works great.
But, at 2 of my friends, who got quad cpu's AMD and Intel, and ATI 4850 graphic cards, they simply can not play it, because it's stuck very quickly.
I have found fix for ATI cards, and I will put it here for everybody who have the same problem.
I hope this will help to a lot of gamers, because this game is something that never before have been made, I mean amazing video game.
Pandemic Studios in Westwood was closed & staff was let go. Remaining staff from the Saboteur & Mercs Inc have been moved over to EALA to continue support for The Saboteur & to develope Pandemic IPs & Brands.
Finally some good news, time for me to install the game again. I don't care for AA, AF etc. I just want the game to run. Has the memory leak been removed@ Sledge?
Unfortunately, killing is one of those things in the world which get easier the more you do it.
Has the memory leak been removed@ Sledge
There's a memory leak?

Nice that there's patch coming, but... why did you release so terribly unfinished game in the first place? Say hi to beta testing.
I am curious. Does the patch address the freezing issue when you receive a message? I managed to run it with one core, but now when I get a message and have to press escape to read it, the game freezes. Is this caused by the same problem? I can't play the game anymore, not even on one core.
