Product Update - Valve
v1.01 of Triple Town on Steam is now live

v1.01 of Triple Town has been made public. Change log as follows:

* There were a bunch of minor bugfixes under the hood (and one major fix for the rarely-reported-but-scary corrupted save file bug).

* Additionally, in this version, we have changed the Capital City so that its rewards are dependent upon score instead of time. In other words, rather than waiting eight hours to receive your next farm tier reward, you must earn 40k points to earn your next reward. So if you're one of those people who plays Triple Town obsessively, well, you're going to earn a lot more rewards than you used to. If you don't play very much, you're going to earn less.

* Lastly, the prices of several items in the main game store and in the capital city store have been slashed. The most important of these are the capital city expansion tiles, which now cost just 50% of what they used to. This should make it a lot easier to grow and enjoy your capital city. In the main store, all of the specialized items (like the time machine) have also had their prices slashed.

We're glad we were able to get this out before the holidays were over! :-) Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year!

Love,
Your friendly neighborhood foxes.

A new update to Pid has been released:

We are happy to introduce Easy Mode with the latest patch!

In Pid's Easy Mode we have redesigned nearly ALL levels and maybe most importantly made ALL the boss fights shorter and more simple. We have studied the reviews and playthroughs on youtube thoroughly to determine how we can create a version of the game that can be enjoyed by everyone. We have also reworked small parts of Normal Mode and the difficulty spikes that people ecountered!

You can now also change the difficulty mid-game without having to restart the game.

01 – GETTING STUCK BETWEEN FLOORS (IN STAIRS AND ELEVATORS)
For you that have this problem you MUST DO the following! Go to OPTIONS, then ADVANCE and then turn SURFACES to OFF. Now you should be able to enter floors in the game without problems.


CLEAR BLOOD INFO
if this function is turned ON the blood will be removed when it lands. You should try and play the game with this turned OFF first.
If you feel that the game runs slower with SURFACES OFF you can try and switch to ON, to save memory.


02 – GLASS BREAKING BUG (HOT AND HEAVY)
We have limited the amount of sounds that the game can play at once (which was what caused the problem with the game crashing).

Note: Win 8 seems to be more sensitive to this then other platforms, but we think the sound limit we have will be enough, since it worked for those that helped us test this.


03 – SLOWDOWN
It helped our testers to turn SURFACES to OFF and CLEAR BLOOD to ON. That made the game run in normal speed for them, so try that if you have slowdowns.


04 - MISC FIXES
Minor issues like the boiling pot/werewolf bug have been fixes as well.

Product Update - Valve
Build 174448 for Serious Sam 3 is released.
If you have previously opted into public beta, you already have this. For all others, here is the list of changes:

- Linux: Added log messages for connected gamepads.
- Linux: Added inp_bLogGamepadEvents cvar for logging gamepad events.
- Linux: Fixed crashes on some window managers due to missing Xlib atoms.
- Added support for OpenGL tearing in VSync via 'ogl_bVSyncTearing' cvar. When cvar is on, screen refresh will wait for number of retraces specified via 'gfx_iWaitVSyncs' cvar and if more vertical retraces passed, will not wait for next one, but will do swap as soon as possible.
- Fixed wrong report of utilized OpenGL extensions.
- Slider widgets in color options menu are now enabled/disabled depending on support of gamma-correction also, not only full-screen or window mode.
- Fixed resolution downsizing not downsizing some buffer in-game causing more GPU memory usage than needed.
- Fixed command bindings not displaying properly in spectator view HUD.
- Added news feed to start screen.
- Editor: Fixed crash when exporting textures.
- Editor: Khnum and Aircraft puppets no longer ignore lethal damage. This allows Killer entity as well as macro functions such as DropDead() to affect these puppets.
- Editor: Added a new macro function to base entity: InflictWeaponDamage(). This function deals damage equivalent to one produced by any given weapon.
