Product Update - Valve
What’s new in the 1.1 update for Toy Soldiers on PC:


Steamworks features have now been integrated into Toy Soldiers! Steam achievements, Leaderboards, and saving games to the Steam Cloud are now a part of Toy Soldiers for PC.
Toy Soldiers for PC no longer requires Games For Windows LIVE to play! Players who are still working on their Games for Windows LIVE gamerscore need not worry though. After the patch is applied and you launch the game through Steam, you will see a dialog box that will give you the choice to play the new Steamworks version, or the Games For Windows LIVE version of the game. Each version will have its own save file, so progress you make in one version will not be visible by the other.

Added Resolution Support

Full 1080p resolution (1920 x 1080) has been added! We have also disabled the check to see what resolutions your display card supports, as this was causing some valid resolutions to be thrown out in some cases. If you happen to choose a resolution that your display card does not support, the game will return to the previous resolution after a few seconds.

Performance improvements

This patch includes improvements to the audio engine that fix performance problems with the game’s framerate, particularly for users running Windows XP. Optimizations to particle effect rendering have also been made.

We have introduced more options for players to tweak the performance of Toy Soldiers for their specific hardware needs. The following options are now available in the “Video Settings” menu under “Help & Options”:

“Screen Filters” - Setting this to “Off” will turn off screen overlay rendering (this improves performance on lower-spec machines). This setting is “On” by default.
“Particle Intensity” - Setting this to “Low” or “Off” reduces or removes the number of particles on the majority of particle effects. This is set to “High” by default.

Other issues that have been addressed

Many users were reporting crashes to desktop upon starting the game. In many cases, this is because the computer did not meet the minimum specifications for the game. In other cases, however, this was caused by Games for Windows LIVE not being updated. Users now have the choice to play the Steamworks version, which will avoid this issue. We have also addressed many crashes found by the community
