    I saw there were GUI changes for Contracts mode in the consoles patch. Are there any changes in the Steam version?

    Any chance of unconscious syringed/ko'd npc's being able to wake up once discovered by a guard for the next patch?

    Would be one thing that would bring me back to playing the game again. I haven't touched the game in weeks. Seems like it would be an easy fix too.

    I like the disguise changes. I can walk around Orphanage Halls and Chinese New Year more easily now without the disguise being too powerful. You really have to stay on your toes.

    One thing about Orphanage Halls though. The suspicion keeps going up even my back is turned. This doesn't happen in Chinese New Year. Is this a glitch?

    Patch should be a few hundred MB.. Nixxes have made some changes so hopefully the overlays get drawn on hardware with less capabilities.. (easiest way could try and explain the fix)

    If I want to download the patch it stops sometimes or slow speed at 50000 DSL, but I think because now download many other users as well.

    #Update: It is now downloaded. I'm curious how it is running better now.

    about tweaked disguise on expert/purist diffculty, afaik make the game 5-10% more easy, but still hard enough though. From far away you still can managed a time to escape from arrow parameters, but more closer to the guard its still fast enough same as first formula.

    disguise w/o mask or disguise w mask still same as first formula no change.
    Suit only parameters is also little bit tweaked.

    Simple answer, no.. game is ONLY on steam, so only steam can patch it, any other means are pirated and therefore unwelcome on official forums

    Thumbs up

    5-10% difference is what I am looking for. I just felt there needed to be a slight tweak in distance to make it A-OK. So this is definitely welcomed news!

    Thanks for the patch. With improved disguise system the game is more enjoyable. Now it's really great.

    Many thanks. That was the most annoying thing for me when I wanted it to be always hidden.

    Can someone tell me what's going on with this effect? What is that? I'm not sure if I can see a difference with this turned off, set to low or normal.

    How about Train station spotted bug? Is it fixed now?

    To Nixxes/IO devs: are you going to fix some other gameplay bugs (like: in Chinese New Year there is one chef which can't be distracted so it's not possible to poison food without being spotted, or in Orphanage halls you can't kill the boss in blue suit stealthy because other guard can always spotted you a second after that guy dies no matter where you kill him)? Is there a low/high priority for that?
