Harry Potter Patched
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Amy Torres of Aspyr Media recently sent word of a patch for their popular third-person adventure game, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. This title based on the best-selling series of children's novels by J. K. Rowling uses the Unreal Tournament engine, and the version 1.0.1 update fixes a few video issues in the game. Here's a quick list of the major changes:

This patch covers several items, the most important of which addresses the loss of video that happened in certain areas of the game. Here is a complete list of the fixes:

  • Places in the game where the screen would go black if you jumped the wrong way are now fixed.

  • Mouse control under OS X is smoother. You may need to re-adjust the mouse sensitivity in the Options screen.

  • On video cards with 16 MB or less of VRAM, the game will reset Texture Detail to medium if you try to set it to "high." High texture detail on those video cards can led to crashes in the game or poor game performance.
The version 1.0.1 patch weighs in at around 2 MB and is available at Aspyr's FTP site now.
