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

Only a fanboy would deny it in face of the long evidence.

For the record, I don't particularly care about Valve's games.

As I wrote earlier, Dev's examples make a convincing case that not all is well in Valve release engineering and QA, and I can totally understand if that frustrates people who buy their games.


Taking offense at it as you did is "getting your panties in a twist".

Actually I mostly took offense at the boundless arrogance you embedded in those posts, combined with the fact that you didn't do your homework properly, i.e. your mischaracterization of the fixes in this particular patch. It does rub me the wrong way if people grandstand without making sure they have their ducks in a row to justify it, that is true.

In any case, I think the topic of the patch is pretty well-covered by now, and continuing this cock fight seems rather pointless.
