'ER' - Update Patch #1 Available NOW

by Rainier on June 9, 2005 @ 9:42 a.m. PDT

In the ER computer game, the player joins the cast of the TV show as a newly hired intern and handles a steady flow of patients with health issues ranging from minor cuts and bruises to serious injuries sustained from accidents and violence. Through it all, the player will have to navigate goals, dodge sticky politics, deal with gut-wrenching ethical dilemmas, and engage in steamy romances. With perseverance, the player will gain prestige among peers and supervisors and ascend the ranks of Chicago's County General Hospital.

We have fixed several memory leak issues that were reserving system resources and caused the game to slow down after lengthy gameplay sessions or after repeatedly loading saved games.

- Fixed a bug that caused ambient audio not to play until moving your character into a new room
- Fixed a bug that caused non-player characters to intermittently "appear" invisible at the start of episodes
- Fixed minor text errors in Episode "Greatest Snow on Earth"
- Fixed a bug that sometimes caused character models to change appearance upon save/load
- Adjusted timing of episode title cards
- Fixed a bug that allowed multiple instances of the Setup.exe to run, giving the message, "Another Instance of this setup is already running"
- Added correct system requirements to User Guide.pdf and Readme.txt
- Updated readme.txt to indicate correct default paths
- The icon for "Confidante/Lover" in the user guide is now consistent with what is in the game
