Counter Strike: Global Offensive Update 4 Release Notes Details
The server updates are mainly related to the complaints of the players who purchased the game. Without further ado here are the complete release notes:
- Fixed an issue in squad mode that caused the winning squad to not be able to play again from the victory screen.
- Added correct localizations for kills by Frag Grenade, Diversion Device, and Fire Bomb.
- Fixed a regression with motion blur graphics settings.
- Optimized memory usage when not playing Danger Zone.
- Added a setting “sv_prime_accounts_only”. When enabled, only prime accounts can connect to the game server.
- Added console commands to support Danger Zone squads:
- sv_dz_team_count N : set DZ team size to N players per squad.
- sv_dz_jointeam_allowed 1: enable users to choose their own squad during warmup via dz_jointeam.
- sv_dz_autojointeam 0: disable players from automatically being assigned a squad when they join the server.
- dz_clearteams – remove players from all squads.
- dz_shuffle_teams – shuffle all players onto random squads.
- dz_jointeam N : Join squad #N (0 = none, valid squads range from 1 to 9).
- dz_jointeam N : Server admins only – assign a player to a particular squad. Doesn’t require sv_dz_jointeam_allowed.
- dz_jointeam only works during warmup. Use dz_clearteams / sv_dz_autojointeam 0 with care — all players must be assigned a valid squad when the game starts.
- Danger Zone teams are now identified through 10 colors
- The colors available include: green, grey, blue, purple, pink, orange, yellow, red, aqua, and beige
- This one is mostly a local sync of recent Steam Datagram system configuration changes, and localization made possible in part by contributions from Translators Like These.
- Size is close to 20 MB
Valve is ending its support of Steam on Windows XP and Vista in 1 Month
Valve has released a statement in which they mentioned that the support of Steam in Windows XP and Vista will be ending from 1st January. Here is the full post:
Starting on January 1 2019, Steam will officially stop supporting the Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems. This means that after that date the Steam Client will no longer run on those versions of Windows. In order to continue running Steam and any games or other products purchased through Steam, users will need to update to a more recent version of Windows.
The newest features in Steam rely on an embedded version of Google Chrome, which no longer functions on older versions of Windows. In addition, future versions of Steam will require Windows feature and security updates only present in Windows 7 and above.
For the remainder of 2018 Steam will continue to run and to launch games on Windows XP and Windows Vista, but other functionality in Steam will be somewhat limited. For example, new features such as the new Steam Chat will not be available. We encourage all users on these operating systems to upgrade to newer versions of Windows in order to have ongoing access to the latest features of Steam, and to ensure future access to all games and other Steam content.
