#40 le economy crash in TF2 General Discussion
blankkhow tf is this still going cant they just take item servers down or something?

Maybe I should have allcapsed the "Disable the itemserver" part of my subject, but I've got some sort of feeling that Valve would just insta-can it if there's allcaps anything even if it is a true emergency.

#1 CS:GO update for 7/25/19 ( in CSGO General Discussion

Via the CS:GO blog:

– Added a game server network channel traffic analysis framework for each client connection.
– Added a game server setting, “net_chan_limit_msec”, which allows server operators to limit amount of processing time the game server can spend on processing packets for each client per tick. Clients that send packets causing server CPU processing time to exceed configured number of milliseconds will be kicked from the game server. Enabled CPU processing time limits on official game servers.
– Added a game server setting, “net_chan_stats_dump” which, when enabled, will dump statistics of each network channel when that network channel is closed. Statistics include messages, bandwidth, and CPU processing time breakdown.

Rumor has it:

- Beyond networking system updates, this one also contains localization file updates which are made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You

- Did you know: you can urn reel moni earn real money for responsible disclosure of security flaws pertaining to the game's networking system or any other aspect of the game? Valve's got a HackerOne page for you to responsibly disclose security flaws or other serious exploits, not just for CS:GO, but their other games and most of the rest of the Steam system!

- Special thanks to /u/DukeBruno123 for being based!

- Size is ~10 MB for clients, and ~25 MB for community server operators (latter per /u/DukeBruno123)

#1 CS:GO update for 6/18/19 (6/19/19 UTC, in CSGO General Discussion

Via the CS:GO blog:

Rumor has it:

- Believe it or not, retro Dust II isn't a separate map. It's instead made possible through the magic of different spawns (as explained by /u/Rock-C). Several users report that alternates between new and retro each round

- Want to know what it looks like? Spoiler alert:

Show Content
It's the 1.6 version!

- This is the Chicken Capsule, which contains various stickers with chickens (as the name implies) by a familiar community artist who also has another capsule in the game with their name on it, Slid3

- Chicken Capsule sticker images and Steam Community Market links are also up on CS:GO Stash

- If you need full-res images, grab them here by pressing the Rich Diff button (the file icon) on the ones you want: https://github.com/SteamDatabase/GameTracking-CSGO/commit/8c5ea870d7cf0a35c2c94bf98b70e9e194ca0d06

Via the CS:GO blog:

– Fixed “cl_teamid_overhead_always 1” to show only a pip (and not also show a name) above a player.

Rumor has it:

- Otherwise it's as small as it looks on the surface, a whole bunch of Italian translations have been thrown in to the tune of about ~300 translated strings, but there are little sprinkles of translations for Danish, Russian, and Spanish (of the Latin American variety) thrown in too
- Translations, as always, are made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You

- Size is close to 5 MB
