Counter Strike: GO PC update addresses glitches, sound levels

Valve reacting quickly to bugs and balance tweaks

Valve's not messing around. Counter Strike: Global Offensive is less than a day old and already the developer has pushed out a bug-fixing update.

Zoom

Today's patch makes numerous tweaks to the game's sound levels, presumably fine-tuning for those ultra-competitive players, and thwarts a fair few bugs in the process.

Other things to note - smoke grenades will now make a taller smoke cloud to make it "more useful to use it to block places like double-doors in dust2", and players also can no longer interrupt another player defusing the bomb by standing in between them and the bomb.

Here are the full patch notes:

- Addressed some stability issues.
- Fixed perf issues when logging is enabled.

- Added a convar (cl_crosshairgap) to control the gap of the classic crosshair.
- The smoke grenade smoke is now taller so it's now more useful to use it to block places like double-doors in dust2.
- Players can no longer interrupt another player defusing the bomb by standing in between them and the bomb.
- Disabled sv_pure on listen servers.
- Fixed an sv_pure bug that resulted in false inconsistent MD5s
- Increased search iterations and time delay for keeping sessions in the ignored pool. mm_ignored_sessions_reset can now reset the ignored pool.
- Fixed a case where MOTD prevents input to the team select screen.
- Fixed occasional "server is full" error when matchmaking into classic casual games.
- Fixed an exploit where a vote could be called for an invalid map.

- added some sound mix settings suggested by pros
- increased the volume of bullet impacts and ricochets
- increased the volume of 3rd person footsteps
- increased the volume of weapon foley sounds (reloads, etc.)
-decreased the volume of ambient sounds

- Added steamcmd support to srcds_run. In order to have srcds_run auto-update when the CS:GO dedicated servers get patched, the srcds_run script must be run with the following options: -autoupdate -steam_dir STEAMDIR -steamcmd_script STEAMSCRIPT
where STEAMDIR is the directory to the steamcmd dir ( example: ~/Steam/ )
where STEAMSCRIPT is the name of the script that steamcmd should execute ( example: ~/Steam/csgo.txt )

Sony has apologised for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's no-show on PS3 in Europe today, promising to "resolve this issue as quickly as possible".
