See – this is how developers are suppose to handle patches…by letting players know that they are gathering up people’s computer specs and announcing that they are working on a fix.  Sure, it doesn’t account for the fact that bugs shouldn’t happen in the first place, but they are bound to occur.  At least the Sims Medieval team gives us a heads up letting us know they are looking into the issues…unlike The Sims 3 Team…

We appreciate your feedback regarding the stability issues with your game. Your posts have been very helpful in tracking down the problem. The issue has been narrowed down to certain video card chipsets. We hope to resolve the problem as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Stay tuned and thank you for your patience!
