I did find it odd too. Did not change a thing, actually, i run the .exe directly, and even without looking the blog, open the game thru Steam, just to see if there was an update (since i use the game on my work PC, i dont use it every day, saddly). Me personally, didnt change a thing, but the problem started after the hot fix. Will try tomorrow to see what happens, don't have the time today. Thank you.
