Hello naughty dog!

 

I noticed something very weird while playing the hotel level (in the basement - before the part of the magnetic card). Everytime i was using the listening mode, these white dot appeared at the top of my screen.
See:

I am playing with the physical version of the game and the patch 1.01 installed.

Hey!

Bug: When entering to listening mode with Joel, I often get white pixels in the first (top) line of the screen. See: http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/Technical-Questions/White-dot-at-the-top-of-the-screen/m-p/40...
System: 80GB fat PAL (I think CECHKxx model)
Region: PAL (Europe, Hungary)
Workarounds: I can set my TV to do not show the full screen (have Sony full HD TV connected with HDMI), then it cuts off the edges. But this workaround is lame! Smiley Sad
Notes: The problem accours mostly when Joel is in a dark place and/or there is fog or spores. You enter listening mode, look around and will see white dots in the first (top) line of the screen.

Please fix this bug in the next patch!!!
Thx

I am almost 100% sure it isn't a bug. Those white dots represent sounds that are further away from the actual listen mode's range; if you move your camera around you'll see the white dots moving along the top of the screen and pointing towards the sound. They were there before 1.02, too.

Have you tried adjusting the resolution? or the aspect ratio?

This is definitely a bug of the games's graphics engine and not a feature!
You all are funny! Smiley Happy
Of course I tried everything.

Naughty Dog, please respond something to this matter!
I received no answer to my PM...

I have been getting this problem too - but usually only after playing the game for several hours. If my Ps3 fan starts to kick in to higher gear I usually start seeing these dots. I had assumed it might be due to overheating. I'll have to check some of those areas to see if I can get them to pop up while the Ps3 is still relatively cool.
