Batman: Arkham Knight PC Patch Fixes Rain Effects and More

 

Batman: Arkham Knight had an abysmal launch on PC, lacking many PC features which are expected from any PC game, nevermind a AAA  release. The game was locked to 30FPS, had terrible performance in almost every kind of setup and was less graphically adept than the console versions of the game. 

Warner Brothers and Rocksteady have removed the PC version of the game from sale and are working to fix the many issues which plague the PC version of the game. Yesterday evening the first PC patch for the game has been released, fixing many bugs, crashes and even enables more .ini file edits. 

You can read our Batman: Arkham Knight Framerate Unlocking and Tweaking Guide here, which will be updated with the now working option to turn off motion blur.

 

Batman: Arkham Knight Framerate Unlock & Tweak Guide

 

Updates in the PC game's first patch include the following:

  • - Fixed a crash that was happening for some users when exiting the game
  • - Fixed a bug which disabled rain effects and ambient occlusion. We are actively looking into fixing other bugs to improve this further
  • - Corrected an issue that was causing Steam to re-download the game when verifying the integrity of the game cache through the Steam client
  • - Fixed a bug that caused the game to crash when turning off Motion Blur in BmSystemSettings.ini. A future patch will enable this in the graphics settings menu

 

"Rocksteady is leading our team of developers and partners as we work on the PC performance issues that players have been encountering," Warner Bros. said. "The work is significant and while we are making good progress on improving performance, it will take some time to ensure that we get the right fixes in place "

 

 

These are the issues that Rocksteady and Warner brothers said that they are dedicating resources to in order to improve the game:

  • - Support for frame rates above 30FPS in the graphics settings menu
  • - Fix for low resolution texture bug
  • - Improve overall performance and framerate hitches
  • - Add more options to the graphics settings menu
  • - Improvements to hard drive streaming and hitches
  • - Address full screen rendering bug on gaming laptop
  • - Improvements to system memory and VRAM usage
  • - NVIDIA SLI bug fixes
  • - Enabling AMD Crossfire
  • - NVIDIA and AMD updated drivers

The only thing that's really bothered me so far is the low resolution texture bug were sometimes high res textures haven't loaded at all and show these horrid plain beige textures that look like something from the PS1 days.Quote

Happens at all resolutions so far, the game at 4K looks lovely but until they fix this texture popping low res thing it will remain an eye sore even if it just happens for a 2nd, Breaks the immersion.Quote
