A new patch for the PC version of Tomb Raider addresses stability and start-up issues, and tweaks to TressFX hair rendering. Those problems were the most prominent complaints last week, when Nvidia offered an apology.
The patch notes specifically mention Nvidia and Intel graphics cards among its myriad of fixes. Others include a fix to the beach-boat area halting progress, various graphical glitches including one centered on exclusive fullscreen, and separate mouse/gamepad inversion aiming. It notes only "some small improvements" to the TressFX hair rendering, so Lara's locks probably still won't pass for a shampoo commercial. Then again, it is caked with blood most of the time.
