Ys IX: Monstrum Nox PC Patch 1.0.6 Introduces New Draw Distance Setting And More

Recent articles

A new patch is now available for Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, with a new draw distance setting and a few other fixes.

The biggest addition in patch 1.0.6 is the Lunatic character spacing setting, which will further enhance the visuals, but with a higher performance impact.

Character spacing / LoD
  • Added “Lunatic” draw distance setting (higher than Ultra, see comments below)
  • character spacing setting made applies to sub-map level of detail selection (see notes below)
  • apply the character spacing setting to more object types (see notes below)
  • fix the draw distance calculation applied to objects when changing the setting in the menu
  • fix fade out distance of objects closer to the center of the screen than at an angle

Due to the additional graphical improvements now associated with the draw distance setting, higher levels have a slightly greater impact on performance than in the previous version. Also, the “Lunatic” setting is strictly intended for highly advanced systems and future-proofing.

While we don’t expect this patch to introduce any regression, with the wide variety of hardware and software configurations available on PC, this isn’t always guaranteed under all circumstances. As such, you can revert to previous versions of the game by selecting one of the public “version_*” branches on Steam.

The new Ys IX: Monstrum Nox also introduces controls and display fixes. You will find these corrections in detail below.

Input / Control
  • added reassignment of confirm and cancel actions
  • added mouse wheel support for scrollable lists and journal when mouse menu navigation is disabled
  • added mouse wheel support for message log
  • fixed vibration only works for controller with ID 0
  • improved navigation in the game menu by disabling page scrolling for left stick
Monitor / View
  • properly support borderless mode on non-primary displays
  • save used monitor for multi-screen setups
  • prevent the screensaver from activating while the game is running

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is now available worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
