1. Hackers do what Naughty Dog don't? GitHub user Illusion0001 has posted blog entries that detail the process on two unofficial patches that they've released for The Last of Us Remastered. The first one involves speeding up load times for the game. They were able to implement this by taking a look at the Uncharted Nathan Drake Collection and seeing that the game uses adaptive sync, in order to unlock the framerate during loading times, which in turn leads to the game loading much faster. By finding where the relevant data was, Illusion0001 was able to do the same for The Last of Us, leading to the game loading dramatically better--in some cases, in half the time--than the official release.


    Their second patch fixes a known bug that involves severed heads. Normally, in all versions of the game, taking an item and throwing it at the leftover head would cause an instant crash. However, thanks to the power of hex editing, they were also able to patch the issue out. Their fix is available for both the PlayStation 3 version of the game as well as the PS4's The Last of Us Remastered, so long as it's below version 1.11. You can see a writeup and detailed explanation of their work on their official blog, as well as how to apply these patches to your own copy of the game, so long as your console is hacked.

    Wow, I thought this 'game' was competent from technical standpoint at least. It seems weak and flawed all around.

    The goodwill of game hackers never ceases to amaze me and baffles me how some of them aren't picked up by game companies.

    Those are some really harsh words to use in regards to one bug and slower than optimal load times. Making a game isn't easy, no games ever make it onto market without having some kind of bug in the code. Calling a game "weak and flawed all around" is ridiculous, its easy to say "well why didn't they just patch the bug" but what you dont see is that they spent months patching hundreds of bugs and you just latch onto the one they missed. I swear ever thread I see you in youre negative, you go into ever single soulslike review thread just to comment about how its "another shitty ripoff of a shitty game"

    Console games are so goddamn stingy with their patches, if this was a Steam game it would've been hotfixed by now

    As a pc gamer who has had to deal with fallout new vegas and dark souls prepare to die for the last decade I can tell you thats an absolutely incorrect assumption. I love those games to death but stable is not a word id use for them.

    Quite a lot of them are, actually. In particular, my mind goes to IdolNinja, who did a lot of modding and stability fixes for the awful Saints Row 2 PC port and then got picked up by Volition!
