By popular demand a Defiance PC Patch for North America is now available for download. This is an unsupported patch, so if you have trouble with the game after installing it, do not email Eidos or Crystal Dynamics for help. Reinstall the game from your original CDs.
Here is the link to the patch that Ben Lincoln is hosting: Thanks Blinc!
Here is what the patch will address:
-Added 'compatibility mode' in the setup dialog, which will fix certain problems with problematic graphic card drivers and force feedback controllers.
-Added Reverb on sound effects with an in-game option to toggle it on/off.
-Added cheat codes.
-Changed the 'Secondary Stick' option to list all possible axis combinations exposed on the current game-pad. This makes sure the secondary stick of most game-pads can be configured.
-Fixed an unresponsive TK switch in the Air Reaver portal room.
-Fixed some miscellaneous crash problems.
-Fixed problem on computers where the "My Documents" folder is moved from the default location.
-Added user-selectable subtitle languages.
-Added some extra bonus items.
-Fixed the skipping of the ending cinematic when playing with keyboard or keyboard + mouse.
-Fixed a bug where movie subtitles got displayed during normal gameplay for a short time when a cinematic was skipped.
-Fixed a bug when installing the game on Win98.
This patch will bring the North American PC release of Defiance up to the same level as the European release.
