No Man’s Sky Update Patch 1.04 To Make People ‘Happy’

by Damian Seeto


No Man’s Sky is out and not everyone is liking the game so far. The game’s developer however feels people will be happier when the new update patch lands.

Hello Game’s Sean Murray tweeted out: “Awesome day at Hello Games, we’re going to make some people very happy with a PC and PS4 patch that’s in test right now :)

If you are playing No Man’s Sky on PS4, this will take the version number up to 1.04. Some people have experienced multiple crashes even after downloading patch 1.03, so hopefully version 1.04 fixes this.

While the real patch is still waiting to be released, Hello Games has updated the ‘Experimental Branch’ of the PC version of the game. Updates have been listed on Steam and you can read them below.

  • UPDATE: AMD Phenom Support Thousands of lines of assembly have been rewritten to support AMD CPUs. The game code no longer relies on anything above SSE 2, Havok Physics has also now created new libs. Game is now confirmed working on Phenom CPUs.
  • UPDATE: Mouse Smoothing Smoothing on mouse movement has been improved to prevent hitching or stuttering, and is now adjustable through the Options menu in “Mouse Smoothing”. It now defaults to off. If you feel the framerate is “slow” or “lumpy”, please make sure that this is turned off (it helps players with sub-30 fps)
  • UPDATE: Improved Performance On CPUs with 4 threads or fewer, performance has been improved. On CPUs with 8 threads, performance has also been significantly improved.
  • UPDATE: Radeon 6xxx Added support for this GPU, which doesn’t support OpenGL 4.5 fully.
  • UPDATE: Player Saves Help to recover some player saves which had been lost or corrupt.
