Product Update - Valve
May 18, 2011

Changes since previous release

Card picker no longer re-deals to first page when selecting a card.

Known issues

Game crashes with a "Failed to DrawPrimitive" message.
This most probably means that you do not have enough Video Memory to run the game (you need at least 512MB). Try setting "Texture Quality" to "Low" or "Medium" in the Options screen. [#2726]

Game occasionally crashes when alt-tabbing from fullscreen.

Steam version of the game fails to start with Zone Alarm installed. Workaround: Uninstall Zone Alarm Toolbar.

A few BSoD instances have been reported, though we are still investigating what the cause could be. Updating your graphics and audio drivers is always recommended in such situations. [#2725]

A rare crash when cancelling a card has been reported. If this happens to you please send us a bug report. [#2766]

Card history can sometimes incorrectly show cards to be paused when they were not. [#3006]

Game has been reported to quit to desktop after the 'Please Wait'
message on Windows XP. [#2716]

Game UI can be extremely slow if you have ASUS gamingOSD or ASUS smartdoctor installed. [#2757]

In some cases the mouse cursor is not visible. [#2783]

It is possible for resources to be consumed by Energy and Transport before they can be directly used by Agriculture, Industry and Commerce.
This results in a largely satisfied energy and transport need but a large sectoral shortfall; the resultant hit to GDP in Agriculture, Industry and Commerce sectors is often comparable to the amount they'd suffer if energy and transport were short on their resources but nonetheless this causes an undeniable inaccuracy in resource use that requires a fix. [#2778]

New save games that have the same name but different letter cases may overwrite older games without warning. [#3007]

Sometimes sound will fail to initialise; restarting generally fixes this but the sound will never recover without a restart. [#2169]

Some types of support gains and losses are not adequately represented on news reports. [#2987]

The game appears to be not responding when loading later saves and sometimes after clicking End Turn. After waiting a few seconds the game will become responsive again. [#2770]

The game will crash when launching from steam if you have a Air Display's virtual graphics adapter running. As a work around you can disable this adapter. [#2780]

UI becomes sluggish after several hours of play [#2695]

"Avoid megadeaths" bonus is awarded a turn too early. [#2866]

Bug: Energy telemetry pane can sometimes show > 100% energy use under certain conditions, [#3002]

Framerate drops noticeably when card history is open in the region screen. [#2342]

Game manual is out of date. [#2718]

Global announcement of temperature change happens a turn late.

Graphs with both positive and negative values occasionally have alignment issues. [#2709]

Main/save/load menus take a long time to load if there are many late-game saves. [#2944]

Multi-turn cards can be incorrectly flagged as "new" if they were cancelled in previous turns. [#2999]

Music has been reported to, on occasion, stop after several hours of play; restarting the game resolves this. [#2694]

Population graph does not mention that the value is in millions.

Some resources may show numbers slightly below zero as the amount remaining. [#2621]

Some stages of Antarctic devastation may not be displayed correctly in the Earth Change view. [#2506]

Some statistics will not make a lot of sense with extremely low population (below 1 million). [#2669]

Stacked graphs with negative components do not represent the totals properly. [#2468]

Video Options do not function correctly with experimental OpenGL Render System [#3016]

Height of stacked graph columns sometimes do not add up to the total for the stat. [#2591]

Instrument predictor pointers animate from 0 rather than from previous turn's temperature/emissions values when loading from a save game, while the '2100' predictor stays at the bottom after loading a game after 2100. [#2673]

Sudden changes from 0 sometimes result in incorrect graphs.

The game is not compatible with MaxiVista software - please turn off the software and/or any devices connected that way before running the game. [#2921]

The globe becomes stretched horizontally after the game has been left idle for a long period of time. [#1836]

The panel last visited in regional Telemetry is preserved when starting a new mission. [#2360]

Transport Emissions graph in regional Transport panel does not show predictions. [#2660]

Annual Emissions Summary tooltips and Temperature/Emission screen predictors react too strongly to changes in the previous turn.
