Product Update - Valve
Nov 1, 2012
Natural Selection 2 Build 228 is now live on Steam. This patch fixes crash issues some players are experiencing, especially those during the "pre-caching" phase of connecting to a server. If you do experience a crash in NS2, please submit the crash report via the displayed dialog; this information is very useful for us to fix any problems quickly.

- Reduced bloom flicker (thanks slime!)
- Reduced visual noise when ambient occlusion was enabled.

Improvement
- Added server list filter option to display favorites only.
