Counter-Strike: Source Engine Steam Client Update Released and new Eurogamer Doug Lombardi Interview by Wester | 0 comments

On 25 Aug 2006

Changelog:
Counter-Strike: Source

  • The radar display has been enhanced
  • de_train has received a High Dynamic Range (HDR) lighting treatment, as well as some bug fixes and layout tweaks
  • The player's eye height while crouching now matches their in-game player model eye position more closely
  • SourceTV now shows the weapon in first-person view
  • SourceTV supports the tv_transmitall command
  • Assorted exploit fixes

  • As for said Eurogamer interview with Doug Lombardi of VALVe Software (an excerpt from it, as related to the interview):
    "Eurogamer: Episode Two is out in Q1 next year now, right?
    Doug Lombardi: Yes that's right.

    Eurogamer: Originally you said you'd hoped to get it ready this year. Is there a particular reason you had to change that?
    Doug Lombardi: No, it's just sort of classic Valve being overly aggressive on our dates. But we're aiming for Q1 right now and we're really far along in the playtest stage. You know, our thing is always that we're trying to make really good experiences and so we're going to manage to that rather than the schedule."

    ...and then an IGN Half-Life 2: Episode Two preview and subsequently a new interview with Gabe Newell of VALVe Software, which you're rather in exultation over the prospect of reading... ? (I hope such)

    EDIT: Worthplaying have a tremendously higher-quality WMV9 128Kbps 48 kHz Half-Life 2: Episode Two (Game Convention) trailer up, weighing 38MB, be sure to keep grasp on it (with a 107.61MB weighing WMV9 720p HD one seeded at Filefront.)
