'Psychonauts' - v1.04 Update Patch Available NOW

by Rainier on Oct. 4, 2005 @ 7:06 p.m. PDT

Psychonauts thrusts players into a third-person psychic odyssey across thirteen incredibly unique levels: three set in the real world and 10 set inside the mental worlds of misfits, monsters and madmen. Once inside a mind, players can rise in rank by collecting figments of other people's imaginations; sort through their emotional baggage; clear out their mental cobwebs and crack open their memory vaults. As their rank rises, players are endowed with new psychic powers such as telekinesis, invisibility, pyrokinesis, clairvoyance and confusion.

Get the Psychonauts v1.04 Patch off WP (10mb)

v1.04 Highlights

The mysterious disappearing cobweb duster has been found and fixed.

Fixed an internal memory bug that could lead to random crashes

v1.03 Highlights

Fixed the display problem in the basement of MM and elaborated on video requirements

v1.02 Highlights

Two settings have been added to improve mouse behavior.

1) The user may now disable smart camera hints that direct the camera towards specific targets
2) The user may now disable camera altitude dampening, which will make the mouse more responsive in pitching the camera

Enhanced error reporting has been added. When possible, the game will write out the state of the game to an auxiliary file, which can then be sent to tech support to assist in resolving the issue. The file will be in the installation directory and will be of the form PsychoDumpRXXX-YYYYY.dmp, where XXX-YYYYY represents the internal build version.
