Did PC get "Enlarges the loot pop-up window in the UI" feature? Last time I played it I had v1.03 and that text was very small.

There was a debate going on in the other thread about this patch in regards to some people seeing camera stutter, while others cannot. I am in the "cannot see it" camp, so I recorded a video just now on PS4 version that shows smooth camera panning. I watched videos other people posted and can clearly see the stuttering going on. What do you guys think, is this stutter free?

Apparently the 1.02 was for Europe only. So for the rest of us it's going straight to 1.03.

From my experience, the stuttering only happens when you pan the camera slowly (like when you're admiring the scenery or whatever). You're turning the camera pretty fast here so I'm not surprised that you aren't noticing it. The fact it doesn't happen when moving the camera quicker makes this even more strange.

This is true.
Patch notes is kinda messed up because they're different depending on the region and systems. PC version in the other hand, went straight from 1.00 to 1.02, then 1.03 and 1.04.

Not sure if placebo, but game looks a bit better after this update? Have they done something to the IQ? Maybe I'm going crazy...

So the text size increase is only for loot text? WTF pretty much all the rest of the text in the game is too small to read as well. Why fix only the loot text and leave the other text tiny? I have to stand up from my couch and walk up to my tv in order to read books in my inventory. Ugh.

It looked better to me as well. I'm just guessing, but I think it could be down to foliage shadows. I checked some of my screens, and unless I'm going crazy, I believe they may have increased the foliage shadow LOD.
