*UPDATE* 522175 is going live now. STEAM will launch later, possibly tomorrow, as it needs to go through extra QA before it goes live on Steam.

Version 522175 is going live within a couple of minutes. This has fixed the multiplayer map CTD’s we experienced with 522174.

Therefore, version 522175 reports itself as 522175 in the auto-patcher, but does still say “522174” in the game’s splash screen.]

In addition, the Steam version will no longer have SecuROM. The patch is going through Steam compatibility testing as soon as possible. The patch is backward compatible. (We are not updating the servers, only the game clients.) So old & new game clients can play with each other.

    Well, I don’t have crashes or had just a minor one. Played 24h+
    On my system it runs better than L4D2 – loads a lot faster.
    No when shitROM is gone, just go and buy it if you are into FPS.

    the crashes are when a admin changes to a new map ;P
    atleast when someone changes a map on a server my client just goes belly up and say goodbye to desktop ;)

    I honestly don’t think anything improved. I had like 4 crashes today just after I searched for servers, in a loading screen. Annoying as hell.
    Friends list still faulty shit. If you have more friends in it, the buttons are no longer work properly, meaning.. the right “connect” button of one guy is 2 possitions below that guy with another friend. atc.

    Bullet registration didn’t change either.. I stood 10 meters behind a guy shooting his head off with a sniper rifle and nothing happening.. this issue depends on server though.. maybe some kind of lag
