Portal Patched

Steam News announces a new patch is now automatically available for Portal, to update Valve's first-person puzzle game. The list of changes follows.

  • Fixed screen "fuzziness" caused by color correction operation
  • Fixed text not rendering in game if font Tahoma was disabled
  • Fixed startup video not playing fullscreen
  • Added optional -snd_openal command line parameter to force the engine to use the OpenAL api, can be used if Portal is playing no audio when launched normally
  • Added mac_fsbackground convar, on Snow Leopard or better you can set this to have Portal still visible when it is not the foreground application

There's plenty of companies that do shitty QA, I'm certainly not denying that. Valve might even be one of them - that might explain why I've Got The News Blues is so angry, then. I don't regularly read their changelogs closely, the debate here just kinda provoked me into doing that for once and the claims I-G-T-N-B made about it didn't check out for me.

I made a bunch of updates to the below post listing some of the more egregious fixes for TF2 in less than ONE MONTH, and some of the steam client changes in only a couple months. Keep in mind that these are only the ones I considered most rediculous in terms of not testing. I didn't even mention them all either, for instance one for the new steam ui said they fixed a bug where w2k wouldn't start steam. Kinda silly not to have at least one computer on dual boot with w2k to at least see if you can START steam, even if nothing else.

If you want to research it yourself, heres the TF2 news page:
