The latest patch v126.96.36.199 for Hello Neighbor 2 addresses several key issues that have been affecting the gameplay experience. General fixes include visual improvements, like the correct display of water textures in the Mayor’s house when RTX Shadows are enabled, and the resolution of rendering issues with wooden planks near the Sawmill. The patch also corrects gameplay mechanics, such as inventory item spawning, cutscene skipping functionality, and stabilization of the lift in the Church area. Additionally, issues with interactive elements, like the camera crate, have been fixed, enhancing the overall interactivity within the game.
The update also brings specific fixes to the ‘Late Fees’ and ‘Back to School’ DLCs. In ‘Late Fees’, the patch resolves door accessibility issues, restores missing background music, and fixes the respawn behavior of the spade book. For the ‘Back to School’ DLC, the update addresses camera rotation issues, reduces random crashes, improves texture loading times, and corrects the camera obstruction during the End cutscene. Moreover, the behavior of the Janitor has been modified to maintain consistent interest in the player, improving the challenge and realism of the game.
