[21-09-2018] PC Patch Notes for patch 1.0.230.9 (Patch #2)
We have just released the second PC patch for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, build 1.0.230.9. This patch focuses primarily on compatibility issues related to performance, game controllers, and stability.

This patch will be applied by Steam automatically when you next start the game. If your game does not update, please restart the Steam client. If your game does not start properly after downloading this update, please verify the integrity of your Steam game files.

For those having issues with their controllers, we have also provided a guide ( found here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/750920/discussions/0/1734339624806450129/ ) related to some Steam settings that influence controller behavior.

Fixes included in this patch:
  • A variety of fixes for issues that could cause framerate stutters on specific PC setups.
  • Added warning message for when the game does not have access to the ‘Documents’ folder to write save data.
    • One common reason for failures is Windows Defender ‘Protected Folders’ feature. If you have problems with your game not being saved, please consider disabling ‘Protected Folders’.
  • Changes to make Exclusive Fullscreen more robust. This specifically relates to problems that occur when other applications or tools like overlays hook into the game.
    • For best stability we recommend that you play without enabling any 3rd party tools that influence the game.
  • Added native support for PS4 controllers connected to your PC via Bluetooth.
  • When using Steam Input:
    • Game now provides default configurations for Xbox, PS4, and other controllers.
    • Updates to Steam Controller configuration.
    • Rumble support for Steam Controller.
  • Changes to ensure BitDefender and other AV products are less likely to block the game.
  • A variety of smaller fixes related to functionality, performance, and stability.

While we expect this patch to be an improvement for everyone, if you do have trouble with this patch and prefer to stay on the old version we have made a Beta available on Steam, Build 230.8, that can be used to switch back to the previous version.

We will keep monitoring for feedback and will release further patches as it seems required. We always welcome your feedback!

Game is great guys! thank you for working on issues, I'd like to ask if making the flashlight manually activated instead of specific places and situations? my sight isn't good enough for dark places and i've already done everything on my monitor+options to optimize the brightness, thanks!

Can someone acknowledge the team is aware of and is looking into the 100% completion bug and the outfit bug? If the team isn't going to fix it at least let us know.

Nixxes, you guys do great work. Thanks for the fast support, I was pretty pleased from the get go, you guys are doing a fantastic job. Great to see!

I second this; an Activate Flashlight button would help IMMENSELY, especially when there are a ton of dark places where the flashlight doesn't automatically activate, it's a big problem for me as well.

Damn been playing this forever on my old 360 controller and just now they release DS4 support (prefered controller). Thanks anyways.

Amazing tombs, puzzles, set pieces, and art direction btw! Would have liked some better writing for the characters and story. Fun game though.

EDIT: Yes please add a flashlight toggle. It has a mind of its own coming on in bright spaces and staying off in the dark.

I hope this new patch fixes crash/freeze and other physics bugs & glitches.
*Exclusive Fullscreen is now working perfectly fine in DirectX 12*

Now, instead having freezes in some points, I have in all entire game. Bad patch for me.

Added native support for PS4 controllers connected to your PC via Bluetooth.

Nice! I switched from cable to bluetooth a few days ago and was disappointed when it switched to Xbox prompts.

Definite improvement observed. Higher framerate in jungle areas with reduced stuttering and microfreezes in tomb areas (albeit in already explored areas). FPS in hub areas still incosistent.

Good time to start an NG+, hopefully completion bug will be resolved soon.
