This patch decreased the performance on my machine and since it's Steam I'm dealing with I can't reinstall it without the new patch :/

Oh for crud's sake. What a terrible port, the PC version. Much too CPU and GPU-intensive. Lemme tell ya, it's gonna take a lot more than a few shadow tweaks to fix this game.
