Patch Notes for v1.26023
Hey, we've deployed a patch that may improve performance for some players experiencing intermittent stuttering during gameplay, by temporarily disabling passive online features.

Note: If you've been using Steam in Offline Mode as a work-around for any issues, you should no longer have to for now.

We will be monitoring feedback to see if this alleviates the problem while continuing to investigate a longer-term solution.

Patch Notes for v1.26045
We've deployed a fix that should improve graphics compitability for some users and also addresses gameplay issues in some Sandbox Test scenarios:
  • Fixed an exploit where users could win Stability Test 1 by using Turn() immediately
  • Optimized visual FX for Jaunt() + Crash() + Spark() for performance
  • In Speed Test 2, replaced fixed function Flood() with Load() + Jaunt()
  • Added command line /OnlyFancyText=true for users experiencing garbled text*
  • Added command line /AllowPackageSwap=false as a work-around for some users experiencing crashes in Performance Tests.*
* To use command line parameters,
  1. Right-click Transistor in the Steam Library
  2. Select Properties -> Set Launch Options...
  3. Type /OnlyFancyText=true or another command line
  4. Hit OK then run the game

We appreciate your support as we continue to make improvements to Transistor based on your feedback. Thank you for playing our game!

Patch Notes for v1.42591
This patch improves the Simplified Chinese text translation added in a December 2016 update, and fixes compatibility with the latest DualShock 4 gamepad.
  • The DualShock 4 V2 controller should now be correctly detected by the game.*
  • Various text fixes in Simplified Chinese.
Simplified Chinese is selectable in-game in Settings > Languages, along with a variety of other options. Thank you for playing Transistor!

* Note: If you're using a DualShock 4 V2 controller and experience an issue where the audio is silent when you start the game, you may work around this by:
  1. Disconnecting and reconnecting the controller
  2. Backing out to Windows, changing your audio output to your desired speakers using Windows Audio Mixer, then re-launching the game
