More Leaked Videos
Posted by jamer197 · 7yr 11mo ago · gaming · 1 comment · 6859 reads
The Leaked Video spoken of previously in the news is on

There are also several new gameplay movies similar to the trailer. In some strange coincidence, new trailers of both TeamFortess 2 and Portal have also been "leaked". They can be found at the same location as the EP2 videos.

Be Warned: The clips of Episode 2 are somewhat spoiling to the games new features. Check it all out here.

Leaked Video
Posted by satchmo · 7yr 11mo ago · gaming · comments? · 6949 reads
I am not going to say what this video is about, but I'll tell you that you won't regret downloading this 12 MB WMV. This video was supposedly "leaked" from Valve, but I suspect that Valve employee intentionally sneaked it to the European gaming site so that gaming fans will distribute this video without Valve having to waste their own resources in the distribution process.

How clever of them! Enjoy.

STEAM ID Ticket Validation Error Fix
Posted by satchmo · 8yr 2day ago · cstrike: source · comments? · 22464 reads
If you get a STEAM ID validation error when you try to connect to a server, you may need to re-login to your Steam account. This problem surfaced for many servers after the most recent Steam client update.

To reset your Steam account, select "Settings" from the Steam menu and click on "Log in as a different user..." Confirm logging out, and log back in with the same login name and password (your existing Steam account).

This fixed the issue for me without having to delete system files.

Steam News
Posted by Prog · 8yr 1wk ago · steam updates · 6 comments · 5051 reads
Soon, we'll be releasing the first in a series of updates to Counter-Strike: Source which will be focused on moving the core Counter-Strike gameplay forward.

The first update will include an updated version of the map Train, which will feature an HDR lighting pass, some minor layout changes, and a number of small bugfixes.

The second facet of this release will be a completely reworked radar system. There will be a significant change to the aesthetics of the radar, but there are also some fairly significant gameplay ramifications to the new system. One example: when you look directly at an enemy for a long enough time for their name to appear on your screen, everyone on your team will be able to see that enemy in the radar. We're planning on releasing this first update in about two weeks.

Source SDK Finally Fixed!
Posted by satchmo · 8yr 1wk ago · Valve SDK · 4 comments · 6500 reads
After Valve updated the SDK for Episode One content, many functions of the SDK stopped working. Hopefully this update fixed all the problems:
  • Source SDK
  • Fixed compilation issues for Linux dedicated server in SDK
  • Removed 3D Lighting Preview menu choice from Hammer
  • Fixed SDK Launcher bugs when performing outdated MOD check
  • SDK Wizard now creates 'maps' directory underneath the new mod directory. This prevents a map compilation error
  • The 'cs_milita.vmf' distributed with was loading in a bad state if the grid is set to be displayed at startup. New version has grid off
