Skyrim patch 1.2 fixes dead wedding guest glitch, cures peaceful dragons

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim - don't mess with the war walrus

Nothing punctures the wedding day atmosphere faster than having the groom's friends turn up dead. Bethesda have put a stop to that sort of thing and a few other impressive Skyrim glitches with patch 1.2.

For anyone concerned about the environmental concerns of leaving dead dragons all over the place "dragon corpses now clean up properly." Stubborn dragons who just wont let go of their soul after death will now do so and "rare" peaceful dragons who don't attack the player will now remorselessly attack the player.

Like a newly discovered dungeon mushroom, the patch that hit consoles yesterday had some unexpected side effects. Edge say that dragons have been spotted flying backwards, and the damage resistances system broke completely. Let us know if you encounter anything weird in the wake of 1.2. The patch notes, pickpocketed from Steam , are below.
