The Polynomial Update Released

Updates to The Polynomias have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

  • Windows: support for any audio format via DirectShow codecs; simply install system wide codecs in the usual way to play any format. Some types of internet streaming audio might also work now depending to the system configuration (OS X version already supports pretty much any format through system codecs)
  • Key bindings for next and previous song and song restart work correctly now
  • File chooser directories are remembered independently for different file chooser dialogs
  • Removed "Merry Christmas" from tutorial level (the Christmas tree remains in the Christmas level)
  • Moved Christmas themed music down in the default playlist

Now Available - Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People on both PC & Mac

Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People is now available as a SteamPlay title!

To commemorate its launch, the game is available at 50% off now through Jan. 20th, 2011 10AM PST. As with all SteamPlay titles, buy once and play on either PC or Mac OSX.

You may already know Strong Bad from his regular appearances answering emails and doling out not-so-useful advice on Homestarrunner.com, or from his latest appearance on Poker Night at the Inventory.

Now he’s the star of a five episode comedy series, Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People. With storylines co-written by the guys from Homestarrunner.com, you’ll feel like you’re inside Strong Bad’s world. (You may even start to talk like him!) Each episode has a different theme and you get to hang out with with Homestar, The Cheat, Bubs — the whole crew. It’s like a Strong Bad cartoon on steroids. As Strong Bad would say, what the crap are you waiting for?

Blue Toad Murder Files Update Released

Updates to Blue Toad Murder Files have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

Counter-Strike: Source - Beta Update Released

Updates to Counter-Strike: Source Beta have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

Counter-Strike: Source Beta

  • Made weapon accuracy changes in response to community feedback.
  • Fixed firing of "stale" burst mode bullets on glock and famas.
  • Re-enabled the ability for max grenades to be set from server convars
  • Fixed code to allow observing other players when mp_fadetoblack is enabled and mp_forcecamera is something other than OBS_ALLOW_NONE
  • Fixed round ending when timer runs out and mp_ignore_round_win_conditions is set
  • Fixed pistols continuously spamming weapon_fire event when the +attack key is pressed. (This has the side effect of no longer allowing the glock to continuously auto-fire in burst mode). All weapons no longer spam weapon_reload when the reload key is pressed.
  • Added defuser icons to CTs on the scoreboard; these are analogous to the bomb icons for Ts in that they only are visible for team members and spectators.
  • Made scoreboard more robust with user modified layout changes. Defuser, bomb, and VIP icons are now colored by team color convar.
  • Updated player max speed cap so that it no longer limits players to 240 movement speed.
