So I have heard that the latest patch does all sorts of damage to the main player look and other characters of the world, I dont know if this is just an over reaction of a number of individuals, or if its actually a problem.

What I would like to know, is if somebody could package up the patch directory (If you have the latest patch already) and send it over to me, so I can take a little look at it. I dont want to download it personally, as it seems you cannot revert patches.

The Origin client rammed the patch into my game when I started it to check something regarding achievements... That may be incidental - i.e., it's possible that the game would have loaded the patch anyway. However, people should be careful if they want to have a choice over whether to install the patch and if so, when.

I've got a zip with all the DiP_staged which weighs about half a megaton (roughly 500 MB). If you're interested I could try to squeeze it with a better packer and sling it towards a landing pad of your choosing.

If you could upload it to a https://mega.co.nz/ then I can pull it down from there

Pretty sure the panic is real, from what I heard graphics quality setting is fecked (shiny hair problem previously reserved to medium settings or lower and PS3 I think)
Facial textures randomly switched around on both NPC and PC's. Scars disappeared, stuff like that. Anyone I know that has the patch has one to all three of these issues.

Haven't patched yet, playing in offline mode till they send out a fix.

Isn't this update just in the update folder alone? Or is it apply to stuff outside that folder, like the cas files?

If its in just the update folder, I've already backed the entire folder up. I did that for testing Ehamloptiran's texture replacement. I noticed it was related to the update, because when I tried to run a save game I used to test Ehamloptiran's files, without the files it actually gave me the error (this game is missing update files). So it clearly knew it was a different version, which I found interesting. If this is also the case I could allow it to patch, then bundle it up for upload.

I have enough hd space to do a complete clone of the game. The only stuff that worries me is hidden files, like in user/roaming/local. I've yet to figure out what they all do exactly. I was trying to share my keep data with a friend who couldn't access it, which is why I looked for it originally.

Honestly, if I run the game and don't wish the update, I'll just disable my Ethernet manually lol. That way no information can be sent to my computer at all.

I have the update files now. Quite a significant update actually. I'll still wait a bit before I apply it myself. But now I have more test data for seeing how patches are officially made. Also I believe this one is set to version 2, which means my original test mod/patch will most likely not work until its changed to version 3

@ Silvist: the update also replaces a couple of files outside of the patch subdirectory, most notably:

Code:
d3dcompiler_46.dll
dbdata.dll
DragonAgeInquisition.exe
Engine.BuildInfo_Win64_retail.dll
version.json
data/initfs_Win32

@DarthGizka- Ah thanks for the heads up, I'll make sure to back those up lol.

@Eham - Alright, sounds good. Yea, I will refrain from updating.

Is there an easy way to permanently disable it from updating?

This patch also changes the starting equipment for human male two handed warrior: I tested it three times and the character changes his armor in a more noble outfit, but then switch again to his original armor when the bridge collapses and the first fight begin. It's just weird.
