New ‘Skyrim’ PC Update 1.31 Adds 4-Gigabyte Tuning Support

Skyrim PC Update 1.31 Adds 4GB Tuning

Hot on the heels of Update 1.3’s release for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim comes a new update for Steam that makes use of up to 4GB of RAM on the PC. 4GB tuning has been an oft-requested feature in the PC version of Skyrim, and was actually patched in but subsequently removed.

But those clever Skyrim modders found a way to continue 4GB support, and made that mod one of the most popular. Now, under the supervision of Bethesda, official 4GB tuning has been patched in, and hopefully it’s here to stay.

Most figure that this 4GB support will pave the way for the Creation Kit, Bethesda’s own set of mod tools that will allow for more diverse Skyrim experiences. As any PC gamer or Bethesda fan knows, a game doesn’t really come together until mod tools enter into the mix. Oftentimes mods can take a game, like Skyrim, which is already stunning to behold, and take it to a whole new level.

The other, and extremely less interesting, part of the update is a fix for accented characters not displaying properly at the end of a dialogue line. It’s a minor issue, but given the Nordic roots of the Skyrim mythology, it’s better to get the correct spelling for everything.

Unfortunately, just like with Update 1.3, there are more gamers left wondering when they will be able to actually play Skyrim, let alone consider incorporating more RAM. The PS3 lag is still a prominent issue, despite a patch being rolled out that was supposed to fix it, and is keeping plenty of gamers away from this serious Game of the Year contender/winner.

Our guess is that Bethesda is done with patches for 2011, but should be doling out some serious improvements in January of 2012 — patches that include that Creation Kit and make Skyrim playable on all platforms.

Are you happy to hear that 4GB tuning has been patched into Skyrim? Any issues on the PC that Bethesda should address before the Creation Kit releases?

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is available now for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

  1. Where is that plank in the game? Looks like Assassins Creed there.

    • I believe that’s on top of one of the guard towers in Whiterun, but I may be wrong

    • pretty sure thats at Bards Leap, SW corner of map

  2. Looks like Bard’s Leap, up near Dragon Bridge. Great location.

  3. PC gaming is ridiculous. 4GB? Seriously???? Not everybody has an Alienware computer you know. Sure, just let me go grab one of my many external harddrives from my Closet O’ Computer Stuff!

    Computer gamers…you fail for the most part.

    Get an Xbox.
    Not to say I don’t like computer games. I still enjoy it. But the hardcore pc gamer community is re-freaking-diculous

    • Just so you know bro, that’s RAM.

      I have 8 gigs ram and 1.5 terabytes of space and my machine isn’t a Alienware.

      My computer runs the game smoother and nicer then a Xbox can.

      As far as I know the PS3 bug is only after extended hours of play. It’s not like the game is crashing. Here’s how to fix the PS3 bug, once the game starts lagging, save, turn system off, restart system, no lag. fixed.

  4. 8gb RAM is still ridiculous. And over a terabyte of space? Most games only require like…2-4gb of RAM. Why do you need 8?

    • The reason alot of people stick more to pc’s now is due to the lacking hardware of our current consoles. Sure at first the power of them were incredible but now, years later, the hardware is as good as a weak gaming pc. 4 Gigs of RAM is actually a good medium, and today’s video cards dwarf the graphic capabilities of console by like 4 folds. Don’t complain about the console vs PC war unless you actually know what you’re talking about. I build computers, go to school for computers, but I still own a PS3 for certain titles. Does that mean I think PS3 is better than my PC? Heck no.

    • I paid 600 for my machine it has a 6 core processor 8 gigs of RAM and 1.5 TB HDD lol me and Yuuchun might have the same machine lol

  5. Chris, it’s called multitasking. There are people like me who need more than 8 GB of RAM because I usually keep adobe bridge and photoshop running in the background if I’m in the middle of working on a project and need to take a break to pwn some noobs at BF3 or relax a bit with Skyrim. I will say that 16 GB is enough memory for most folks out there.

  6. Wow, that’s amazing. Lol

  7. Hello, everybody, the good shoping place, the new season approaching, click in.
