About time they did some quest fixes. Might actually play the game again now. I had that "rare" issue with Dampened Spirits.

Has to be said, for a game that "such little" numbers of people had issues with, they are sure fixing long list of things in this 4th patch since release..just saying

Nice one thanks :o)

I just have not bothered with this game after I purchased it ages ago for £22.00, I will play Skyward sword meantime and hope things are ironed out better at a later date, That Is one meaty update though.

Thanks for this!

[/quote]Loads of players had issues with the game but you get accused of being a liar if you post about it on here, they still haven't fixed the skooma quest which stops you becoming thane of riften grrrrrrrrr.

I've got the Skooma quest glitch too, and it also looks like they haven't fixed the 'Hitting The Books' one at Fellglow Keep either, so I can't progress the Mage College questline.

There's no doubt that issues exist, the problem is too many people getting their knickers in a twist over issues that are not game breaking.  I have had my fair share of issues over the last 105hrs but I have managed to complete all main and faction quest lines, which is the main aim of the game!

But if someone else said to you, that they couldnt complete a quest line, would you dismiss that person's point just because you didnt have a problem with that quest?

Exactly!  And my point is that I can't progress one of the faction quest lines because the screen freezes every time I try to enter Fellglow Keep.   Maybe its not a big deal to some, but I'd really like to complete all the main quests and faction quest lines in this game.
