- Size is a bit over 5 MB

#1 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update for 7/9/20 in CSGO General Discussion

Via the CS:GO blog:

Valve[MISC]
– CS:GO will now display an error if launched from outside of Steam.
– Fixed a case where players in Trusted mode would experience a framerate issue caused by certain 3rd party apps.

#1 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive update for 7/8/20 in CSGO General Discussion

Via the CS:GO blog:

Valve[Trusted Mode]
– Players now launch CS:GO in Trusted mode by default
— While in Trusted mode, third party software will be blocked from interacting with CS:GO
— To allow third party software to interact with CS:GO, you can start the game with the –untrusted launch option. Note that in this case your Trust score may be negatively affected.
— A backwards compatibility label “1.37.5.9” is temporarily available for players experiencing difficulty launching the latest version of the game.
– If you are a third party developer, all of your DLLs that interact with CS:GO must be digitally signed.
— If your customers would like to use third party software that is not digitally signed, they can start the game with the –insecure launch option. Note that they will not be able to join VAC servers with this option.

[MISC]
– Fixed a regression to reenable twitch.tv streams in the “Watch tab”

Rumor has it:

- In addition to the launch options, you can also control Trusted Mode from the in-game settings (but a game restart is required)

- net_graph now displays the game's current "ClientVersion" parameter next to choke statistics

- An assortment of translations is included, which are made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You

- Size is ~15 MB

#1 TF2 update for 7/3/20 in TF2 General Discussion

Via HLDS:

Valve- Accounts that are unable to chat in matchmaking are now also restricted from sending voice chat
- Fixed a bug where cosmetic items in the second and third equip slots would be un-equipped
- Fixed matchmaking badges not displaying the correct tier in the scoreboard and other dialogs
- Added matchmaking badge and time connected to the Report Player dialog
- Updated the vote kick process to automatically vote Yes for anyone who hasn't already voted if the target for the vote leaves the server
- Updated the Mute Player dialog to have the same information as the Report Player dialog
- Updated item schema with community fixes from Andrés S. (rabscootle)
- Updated/Added some tournament medals
- Updated the localization files

Rumor has it:

- Just a couple tournament medal additions to list today:
- Pugiklander Premier Summer 2020 (First Place, Second Place, Third Place)
- The "Staff" medal has been renamed to "Helper"
- NHBL Sasha Heavyweight Champion Season 9

- Wanna know what rabscootle's item schema fixes consist of? Spoiler alert: a lot of inventory item movement sound effects (mouse_pressed_sound/drop_sound) being rigged up for the first time or replaced with better sounds, and some item_type_name additions to items that didn't have them previously (or had better ones that could be used instead)

- Localization file updates are viewable throughout at https://github.com/SteamDatabase/GameTracking-TF2/commit/eb5c1ce31703ce7538f24f8a98dc6128e85220c8, and are made possible in part by contributions in part from Translators Like You - Thank You

- Fixed being able to update team name while in matchmaking games

- Pugiklander Experienced Summer 2020 (First Place, Second Place, Third Place, Participant)

- New tournament medals, all of which reuse previously included models (because you know we can't squish new stuff all into 1 MB), are as follows:
- Asia BBall Cup Invite 2020 (1st Place, 2nd Place, 3rd Place, Participant)
- Asia BBall Cup Main 2020 (1st Place, 2nd Place, 3rd Place, Participant)
- Respawn League AUS/NZ Highlander Premier Season 6 (1st Place, 2nd Place, 3rd Place, Participant)
- The current set of medals already in the game has had the Main division inserted into their names

Via the CS:GO blog:

Valve[ GAMEPLAY ]
– Grenades can no longer apply impact damage more than once.

Rumor has it:

- A string that would normally indicate that a member of your lobby that needed to restart before playing on Valve servers because they loaded 3rd-party custom content from a community server is now a lot less descriptive and doesn't mention that at all anymore

- Other than that, there's a small set of additional translations made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You

- Size is ~5 MB

#1 CS:GO update for 5/27/20 (5/28/20 UTC, 1.37.5.3) in CSGO General Discussion

Via the CS:GO blog:

Valve[ GAMEPLAY ]
– The killfeed now displays players that are killed by C4 explosions in all game modes.
– Players that are frozen by game logic no longer take damage.
– Players are less likely to become stuck on mid-air grenades, and are now able to stand up when crouched on top of another player’s decoy grenade.
– Grenades are less likely to phase through doors when thrown into nearby players, and have improved collision when bouncing near the ground around player’s feet.

[ RENDERING ]
– Adjusted sticker shader to reduce mip artifacts on holographic stickers at an angle.
– Optimized shadow culling frustum to prevent flickering shadows caused by renderable overflow at ultra-wide aspect ratios such as 21:9.
– Optimized texture generation by giving composite textures destined for models that are already rendering higher priority in the generation queue.
– Added a trailing cache of composite inputs, designed to optimize composite generation for sequences of similar jobs.
– More asynchronous texture requests are allowed per cycle, allowing composites to generate faster on some systems.
– Added an experimental graphics setting; ‘Texture Streaming’ in video options. Texture streaming allows the game to defer loading of high-resolution textures until they are needed for rendering, potentially saving a significant amount of video memory. On systems with slower disk access, streaming textures may be momentarily visible.

[ UI / LOCALIZATION ]
– Added a new Anubis main menu background movie to the game.
– Added a way for users to change their main menu background scenery.
– Split stickers and patches localization UI tokens to allow for better translations.
– Added proper HTML-escaping for custom inventory item names when applying and scraping stickers.

[ STORE ]
– Added Warhammer 40,000 Sticker Capsule featuring a variety of stickers from the Warhammer 40,000 series.

[ STEAM ]
– Updated Steamworks SDK and Steam libraries to the latest versions released in May 2020.
– If the game fails to connect with local Steam Client, then users must update their version of Steam Client by selecting Steam > Check for Steam Client Updates…

#1 CS:GO update for 5/11/20 (5/12/20 UTC, 1.37.5.2) in CSGO General Discussion

Via the CS:GO blog:

Valve[GAMEPLAY]
– Improved reliability of picking up weapons with +use when nearby dropped grenades are present. (Thanks birkir!)
– Explosive grenade damage around small obstacles such as stairs will now apply damage to players more reliably.
– Hostages will no longer obscure flashbang traces, allowing players behind them to be blinded.
– Players that start the round with a taser and no pistol no longer have their taser deleted, and rechargeable tasers are now recharged at round start.
– Fixed Danger Zone piloted drone self-destruct timer resetting due to zone damage or repeated player input.

[PURE SERVERS]
– Added a setting sv_pure_allow_loose_file_loads for game servers to control whether third-party files can be loaded by clients. Users are allowed to have third-party files on disk, but the files will be ignored when playing on such pure game servers. If users already loaded third-party files into game memory, then their game client must be restarted in order to connect to such pure game servers.
– Added a setting sv_pure_allow_missing_files for game servers to control what happens to clients that load files missing on the game server. When disabled, if a connected player loaded third-party files into game memory that game server is missing, the player will be kicked.
– Added a message explaining to the client which file mismatched the pure server configuration and caused a user disconnect.

[MISC]
– Improved loadout animations in buy menu for several agents and weapon combinations.
– Fixed certain game instructor hints displaying incorrect key bindings in certain languages (e.g. “sfrutteranno” in Italian).
– Added a setting con_allownotify to allow hiding top-right corner notifications if “Overflowed CClientRenderablesList” notification appears in 21:9 resolutions.

Rumor has it:

- For a technical deep-dive into why weapon pickups were flaky in close proximity to grenades, read /u/kinsi55's post detailing it all here

- There is also a message that will appear in lobbies if someone is holding up a queue as a result of having disallowed custom content: "<name> has loaded third party files which do not match the official CS:GO install and must restart their game before playing on official servers."

- A small bit of localization is included, made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You

#1 CS:GO update for 5/4/20 (5/5/20 UTC, 1.37.5.0) in CSGO General Discussion

Having issues with being kicked from servers because of today's sv_pure change? See the "Rumor has it" section in this post for a fix - simply scroll down.

Avoid solo queueing or being in a 2 or 3-stack for a competitive match due to the likelihood for higher teammate abandon rates than usual to continue for some time, unless you're in a 4 or 5-squad and have verified that you aren't being kicked in something like a casual server.

------------------------

Via the CS:GO blog:

Valve[GAMEPLAY]
– Added kill feed icons for blind shooter, kills through smoke, and no scope sniper kills; all kill feed icons feature the bullet on the same line.
– When spawn immunity time is set to a negative value then spawning players will not have immunity even during warmup period.
– Fully disabled player immunity in 1v1 Wingman warmup period arenas, and added logic to clear blood decals for each encounter.
– sv_pure servers will now kick clients that have loaded asset files into game memory from files not present on game server filesystem.

[UI]
– Fixed showing observed player crosshair in the editor menu.
– Fixed strings on crosshair import dialog being truncated in some languages.
– Fixed crosshair codes storing incorrect values for values out of range.

[MISC]
– Updated third person pose for G3SG1, and taught Terrorists a better way to hold AUG in the buy menu.
– To welcome the sunny weather outside, switched main menu movie scenery to Nuke.
– Added ability to purchase coupon items from Steam Store, e.g. https://store.steampowered.com/buyitem/730/20170 for “StatTrak™ Masterminds Music Kit Box”.
– In-game blog will now render in Greek if game interface is set to Greek language.
– Fixed prediction errors occurring sometimes when crouch-walking or in noclip mode as listen server host.
– Enabled animation blending for chickens.
– Updated several agent voice lines for Perfect World version of the game.
– Optimized textures for separatists player models.
– Several stability fixes.

[MAPS]

Chlorine
– Tweaked ambient color light to make it bluer
– Made bombsite A plant zone bigger
– Fixed bombstuck spots on A bombsite pillars
– Removed bamboo fence near CT upper on A bombsite
– Added bamboo fence near T main on A upper, moving the gap closer to the tank
– Added bamboo fence near big rock on A upper to cut direct line of sight from CT upper to T main entrance
– Added light source on lazy river tunnel near CT spawn
– Added bamboo fence on the back of CT main entrance to A bombsite for better visibility
– Tweaked textures in lazy river tunnel and connector to make them more vibrant
– Added light source on B upper
– Tweaked lazy river texture to make it brighter
– Added cover for T’s on middle
– Removed a head peek angle from CT mid to A bombsite
– Fixed pixel boost on B bombsite
– Made main lights on B bombsite brighter
– Fixed see through stairs near CT spawn
– Fixed wooden door on B being bangable
– Added bamboo fence near tank on B bombsite
– Removed water from lazy river at CT spawn
– Tweaked sky box to be less purple
– Added bambo fences in high traffic areas for better player model contrast
– Removed foliage models in some places
– Optimization
– Updated radar image

Inferno
– Added 1v1 warmup arena for Wingman mode

Rumor has it:

- The new killfeed icons mentioned were actually added with the 4/23/20 (4/24/20 UTC) update, but weren't active until now

- The sv_pure changes of today now mean that custom sprays and models will no longer work without a little bit of convincing towards your local community server operator
- There are currently widespread kicks ongoing as a result of this change
- If you are getting kicked because of this: delete both your \models\ and \materials\ folders in the CS:GO directory (usually "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\"). Making a copy both folders in a place like your desktop as a backup if you had custom stuff you want to keep around isn't unwise. Then verify your game files (even if you've already tried to before) and try to play once more.
- Thanks to /u/asantos3, /u/aidsburgerss, /u/Tiezzynator, /u/DezarothAU, /u/HooksAU, and /u/yousifucv for all of their help and currently positive findings so far

- Relevant when under Perfect World influence inside of mainland China: its anti-addiction system wasn't completely ported over to the Panorama UI system, but now it has been
- This is the same system also used in Dota 2 when under Perfect World influence

- New translations have also been thrown in. You know what I'm about to say: they're made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like You - Thank You
