Tilen ::

Torej danes sem se prvic soocil s STEAM-om. Ne vem zakaj imajo tak smesn sistem. Dal sem si dljat Source in na 80% mi napise da imajo kao tezave s serverjem da bom mogo reconnectat. Storim tako, pa morm znova dljat od zacetka. Sux no.

Drugace glede varnosti pa je kul poskrbljeno. IMO prav zaradi Steama Valve dosti vec svojih iger proda, kot pa bi jih naceloma prodal.

Se nekaj zanimivih statistik glede Steama.

Kako pa je kaj z updatei? Kako redno se posodabljajo igre?

Bral sem, da se da na razne nacine nekomu ukrast Steam account & key. So kaksne taksne tipicne varke na katere naj bom pozoren. Igra, ki sem jo kupil (HL2 Silver) vseeno ni bila zastonj.

Čisto simpl, če je kakšen programček, kjer piše, da moraš vpisati user name & pass za karkoli ga ne vpisovati, to počneš samo ob logonu na Steam in nikjer drugje.

Updati so kar redni, sploh za CSS. Klikni z desno na steam tray ikono in daj news, tam imaš zgodovino updatov.

Klikn z desno na Steam tray ikono in daj "monitor". Pa še v "play games" lahko z desno klikneš na igro (recimo CS:S) in daš "properties" pa potem "avtomatic updates"...

To je mapa cs_compound, ki pa je zunaj od konca januarja. Je zelo podobna mapi cs_assault iz CS 1.6. Vsekakor zanimivo. Vendar vseeno čakamo na mapice kot so de_nuke in de_train.:\ :\ :\ :\ :\ :\ :P

A team-based multiplayer game that cast players in the Axis vs. Allies battles of Western Europe circa 1944, Day of Defeat: Source leverages the power of the Source engine to introduce integrated physics simulation technology, all new audio, updated maps, enhanced effects and more. More information about Day of Defeat: Source will be released in the coming weeks

Deathmatch Update Available
February 24, 2005, 5:21 pm · cliffe
Counter-Strike: Source, Source Engine, and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch updates are available and will be applied automatically when Steam is restarted. The changes include:

Counter-Strike: Source

New hostage rescue map cs_compound

Added Source version of de_train

Upgraded version of the CT player model

Location names are shown in radio/team chat, and under the radar

Server tickrate can be specified with -tickrate

Added radio command aliases

Added mp_humanteam cvar [any | ct | t] (forces human players onto specified team - useful for humans vs bots)

Added new "match" mode for bot_quota -- If bot_quota_mode = "match", bot count = (human count) * bot_quota

Bots no longer automatically follow humans (bot_auto_follow now defaults to 0)

Bots are balanced before humans with mp_autoteambalance

Bots can open simple +use doors

Bots change their names to match the prefix when bot_prefix changes

Several improvements to bot behavior when paths become blocked -- solves problems specific to cs_havana

Bots won't throw grenades if something is blocking their throw

Bots are better at only breaking objects that are in their way

Fixed bug where a bot occasionally "dithered" rapidly between two or more targets without firing
bot_kick and bot_kill console commands use the bot's base name without the bot_prefix
de_piranesi - bots avoid the breakable crates better.

A bomb exploding just as the round restarts no longer kills players at the start of the next round

Grenades being thrown when the player dies no longer disappear

Increased mp_limitteams bounds to 0-30, where 0 will disable this functionality

Players' arms and hands can be hit by bullets now

Target ID font is proportional, and it doesn't resize incorrectly after a resolution change

Overviews don't show player locations when mp_fadetoblack is on

Players with spaces in their names can be selected in the spectator GUI

Observers can change their name at round restart

Throwing a grenade right at round restart no longer results in holding a "ghost" grenade viewmodel at respawn



Source Engine

Fixed a bug where snd_mixahead was not working properly. Should fix some sound popping problems for certain sound hardware when running at a low framerate

Added support for a new surround sound buffering technique that streams six discrete channels instead of using DirectSound3D. Use snd_digital_surround in the console to enable this. This allows for support of Dolby Digital 5.1 on nForce2 hardware

Allow mp3 playback at rates other than 44100Hz. This was requested by the MOD community



Master Server Query Protocol

Added a challenge number to A2S_PLAYER and A2S_RULES server queries
* setting "sv_enableoldqueries" to 1 (default) allows old style (no challenge/response) queries to work. By default queries don't require a challenge number for clients on the same B class network, change "sv_allowlocalquery" to 0 to disable this functionality

Changed A2S_INFO server query to require the string "Source Engine Query" appended to the end of the query packet.



Half_life 2: Deathmatch

Fixed model exploit that would allow players to select an invalid player model

Added weapon type to server log

Friday, April 1 2005

An update is available for Counter-Strike: Source. The update will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. This update addresses requests for more realism in Counter-Strike: Source. The changes are as follows:


Features/Additions
Doubled player speed when jumping. The effect to cumulative, so the more you jump, the faster you go.
Cut price of AWP by 50%.
Added akimbo Riot Shield to buy menu.
Removed de_dust from mapcycle.

Realism Enhancements:

Knives:
Between rounds, it is suggested that you unsheath the weapon and repeatedly press the attack key to air it out as the leather now collects moisture and creates pits on the blade, making it less effective in the next round.

Shotguns:
1. Firing the shotgun without ammo loaded will now cause it to jam.
2. When the shotgun jams, press F2 to fill out form DA-1823-00/A12-H8.
3. You should then hear a scribbling sound. When it stops, press F3 to send the request to LIDM.
4. Failure to do paperwork before pressing F3 will result in the immediate return of the unrepaired shotgun.
5. The repairs can take 1-2 rounds for completion. During that time, you cannot purchase a replacement firearm and may only use your sidearm or knife.

Player Models:
Several models now feature eyewear. This is a completely cosmetic enhancement with the following exceptions:

Part EP-7829-292-2 must be purchased and worn correctly at all times in order to see during the round.

In between rounds, you may purchase and use part EC-2231-833-H34 to clean your EP-7829-292-2. Note: that this does not clean the eyewear itself!

To clean the eyewear, you need to purchase and use the designated cleaner, EC-2231-233-H34, EC-2231-523-H34, or EC-2231-239-H34a respectively depending on your model's eyewear. You can determine the part # of the correct cleaner by asking someone.

Machine and submachine guns:

At least once every five rounds, press F1 to inspect the weapon:
A musical cue indicates that the inspection has started. Now press F1 again repeatedly to clean and lubricate the weapon.

Your Preventative Maintenance Status (either "cleaning" or "lubricating") is determined by the speed with which you press the F1 key and will be displayed above your head.

To accurately simulate real life maintenance mistakes, pressing F1 too quickly will lubricate either the bolt face or the trunnion block. Pressing F1 too slowly sprays lubricant directly into the buffer tube. All mistakes render the gun inoperable, though this may not become immediately apparent.

Experiment with keypress timing to avoid (and discover!) other common maintenance errors.

In order to balance the improved stopping power of a well-maintained weapon, the reloading process has been made much less reliable.

When reloading, you should listen for two or three distinct clicks over a period of several seconds.

If you hear one click or no clicks or more than two clicks, you've bent the link ejector chute and the gun will most likely explode on the next attempt to fire it, though it may not.

Valve and Vivendi Universal Games Settle Lawsuit
April 29, 2005, 9:47 am · Chris Bokitch
Bellevue, WA and Los Angeles, CA - April 29, 2005 -- Valve and Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games) today announced the settlement of a pending federal court lawsuit filed by Valve in August 2002. The parties have resolved their differences, and the settlement provides for the dismissal of all claims and counterclaims. Under the settlement agreement, VU Games will cease distribution of retail packaged versions of Valve's games, including Half-Life®, Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike™, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero and Counter-Strike: Source, effective August 31, 2005.

Additionally, VU Games has notified distributors and cyber cafés that were licensed by VU Games that only Valve is authorized to distribute Valve games to cyber cafés and grant cyber café licenses. Cyber café operators that were licensed by VU Games have also been notified that any license agreement from Sierra Entertainment, Vivendi Universal Games or any of their affiliates or distributors that may have granted rights to use Valve games in cyber cafés, whether written or oral, is terminated.

About Valve

Steam sux bigtime.Vedno eni updejti in vedno se neki caka ;(

Tilen ::

Koncept kot tak sploh ni zgrešen. Glede na to, koliko on-line iger "trpi" Steam, lahko rečem da dela nadpovprecno dobro.

Breakdowni so pa povsod pa tudi updejti niso tok pogosti vsaj tisti vecji ne.

Counter-Strike: Source, Half-Life 2 and Source Engine Updates Available
May 13, 2005, 12:00 am · Alfred Reynolds
An update is available for Counter-Strike: Source, Half-Life 2 and the Source Engine. The update will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The specific changes include:

CS:S

* New map: de_inferno
* New map: de_port
* Updated Counter-Terrorists player model with new headgear and color scheme
* C4 red flash displays properly if the bomb is planted under water now
* C4 explosion damage is no longer affected by water
* When a map is loaded, an associated .cfg file is automatically evaluated. This cfg file must be located in the cstrike/maps/cfg folder and be named mapname .cfg. For instance, the file cstrike/maps/cfg/de_dust.cfg will be evaluated when the map de_dust is loaded. This is useful for per-map rules, bot rosters, etc.
* Added new route to roof of hostage shack in cs_compound, and improved bot navigation in the map
* Players must now target another player for at least a half second before the player ID text hint shows up
* Grates/chain link fences no longer affect bullets
* Counter-Strike player ragdolls are now affected by ragdoll magnets
* Fixed a bot crash caused by finding too many hiding spots in a region
* Bots no longer attack enemies that are very far away unless they have a sniper rifle, or the enemies are shooting at them. Instead, they track the enemy and move to a better attack position
* Bots understand +use doors now and will pause to open a door before continuing through it on their way to whatever they were doing
* Bots use less CPU now, especially when in combat with far away enemies
* Extended the syntax of the bot_add, bot_kick, and bot_kill commands to also accept "t" or "ct" arguments.
* Fixed bug where bots would stop and become unresponsive if they wanted to hide in an area with no hiding spots
* Improved bot navigation on the windows and ledges of cs_italy
* Fixed recording value of cl_interp in demo files and restore value during playback


Source Engine

* HTTP downloads from the game server system support downloading .bz2-compressed files
* Disable old style (non-challenged) server queries by default (use the sv_enableoldqueries cvar to change this behavior)
* Added cvar tv_delaymapchange to delay map changes caused by frag/time limit until the whole game is broadcasted via SourceTV
* Fixed lag compensation invalidating bone cache for players moved back in time.
* Fixed lag compensation interpolation error between 2 ticks


Half-Life 2

* Fixed some NPC actions not being properly randomized


SourceTV (part of the Source Dedicated Server)

* Fixed memory leak in relay servers by releasing receive tables correctly
* Bandwidth output in tv_status in kB/sec rather than bytes/sec
* Running a new map command (spawning a server) shuts down TV relay in same process
* Fixed SourceTV chase cam following ragdolls of dead secondary targets
