BioWare has released a v1.01 patch for the PC version of Mass Effect 2, which fixes a number of issues related to graphics, control settings, uninstallation, and more. There's no word on an Xbox 360 patch yet, but one would assume we'll be seeing one very soon:
'¢ Fixed video hitching and crashes related to single core machines. You can also grab the patch from AtomicGamer or WorthPlaying, if you prefer.
'¢ Single core users may experience short periods of black screen that may last up a few seconds between level loads, cinematic transitions or movies.
'¢ In rare cases, some single core users may notice dialog lines in certain conversations may be delayed up to a few seconds.
'¢ Fixed an issue where it appears ammunition can be picked up, but can't.
'¢ Fixed an issue where all Codex entries were marked as 'viewed', even if the player chose not to view them.
'¢ Fixed an issue where weapon icons are re-organized after downloadable content is used.
'¢ Fixed an issue where pressing F9 after the mission completion screen reset Shepard to Level 1.
'¢ Fixed an issue where remapping the right mouse button blocks camera control in the command HUD.
'¢ Fixed an issue where remapping the 'use' command affects the decryption minigame.
'¢ Fixed an issue where users were not prompted to restart when logging in to a different EA Online account.
'¢ Fixed an issue where movies do not play in DLC.
'¢ It is recommended that players reset their keyboard mapping to default values to ensure proper vehicle control.
'¢ Added useful messaging during the ME1 save game import.
'¢ Weapon icon for henchmen never changes from Collector Assault Rifle.
'¢ Czech language Issues with Czech localization (subtitles) were amended, all text was corrected and improved.
'¢ Fixed an issue where the Mass Effect 2 launcher was being associated with files that have no extension.
'¢ Fixed an issue where uninstalling the game under Windows Vista or Windows 7 might uninstall Mass Effect 1.
