Apparently, when you go into the game through the launcher, there's a new patch to download. I've been searching the official forum, and other places for a list of what it's supposed to fix before I download it, but haven't found anything yet..
Just wanted to give the folks here a heads-up about the patch
UPDATE - found a link; this is all it says :S http://launcher.thesimsmedieval.com/ (click on the underlined patch to get the info)
In case that doesn't work, the patch only 'fixes game instability issues encountered by some players.'
No other details? No specifics? Hmmm.... since my game works well at the moment, I don't think I'll download this just yet without specifics on what it does...
Why are people so afraid of patches? It may take an extra one or two to fix everyting, but it was a non-issue on a new released game for me. There was no CC to mess up, and following directions is still adviseable from time to time.
Burn The midnight oil, it will be daylight soon...
On previous occasions EA have released patches that actually make the game less stable, in a few cases they have had to take the patches down. But people have had their games ruined in the past. So that is why people get nervous and want to know exactly what it fixes.
I don't know if it's because of just the patch or my having the core hack too, but since I installed the patch yesterday, I can't complete Fountain Of Legend any more. After I talk to the King to request releasing either of the two guys from the stocks (I literally tried once with the monk and once with the peasant), the quest is in limbo. There doesn't seem to be any person I can pay the fee to. Clicking the King is missing that option entirely. I tried the advisor too, and for that matter the builder, executioner, guy in stocks, nope, the option just isn't there. :/
So I guess there can be a reason to fear patches after all...

You need to click on a Messenger Box to pay the fine, then go get a Pardon from the Advisor. You should be able to proceed from there.

My game plays so much better after the patch and all the mods are working fine after. I played for several hours after the patch. I use integrated video on my computer and I was having video problems before. It would be like a CTD, but the screen would just black out and the game would drop to desktop for a couple of minutes and then come back up, but after the patch, that doesn't happen to me anymore.
If you are using "auto-run" that will happen. If the game installed correctly, you should have a shortcut on your desktop to get to the launcher and click on the green play button. The green play button shouldn't have anything to do with installing the game.
