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

At least it isn't like Photoshop patches! You're lucky to get one very minor patch per version. I've experienced several obvious bugs. The only way to fix some of them is to pay the $199 upgrade fee, and that often introduces more bugs than it fixes.

It's hard for me to complain about Valve when their $20 game gets more support than an $700 application.
