Where's this crash fix? I havnt been able to play Hidden since latest release and it sucks, and a lot of people are also experiencing this problem, as you know.

When can we expect a fix?

Basically we made a promise to ourselves we would ramp up and attempt to get 'updates' out every month, so rather than do hotfixes and the like, we are instead attempting to bring you Beta 4(with fixes and changes etc) sometime in early June, but its a coder based thing so I cant actually guarantee it. Believe me when I say I know two of them are working on it, cant say much for the third one...:p

If we can track down the cause of the crash and resolve it, we'll release a patch rapidly so everyone can get back to playing - it is our highest priority right now I assure you.

I brake for Weighting Systems that determine the ages old "MY KILL!" battles.

I suspect something faulty in the Animations, possibly its been organized incorrectly, could even be something simple as Mouse actions. We know something happens once you get killed or kill the Hidden, something triggers right after resulting in the so called crashes (and this is just one among many) This is a great game and it surely diserves more than 5 mins game time hope it gets fixed asap...oh wait *Crash*

soz for dbl post
had a crash free session today, for the fun i renamed HL2.exe to sumthin else. i cant go onto a server by opening the game directly thru steam cuz it will tell you sumthin bout HL2.exe which i renamed, instead i access servers thru the steam servers tool thingy, works fine, wether this renaming has anything to do with having a crash free session for the first time everl is unknown, however its worth the try........ :confused:

I know that one cause of the crashing is by DX6 or 7 shaders used on the hidden death animation. A friend of mine has a crappy mobile raedon video card and the hidden is a visable milky figure that is way more easily seen than the normal distortion. And in some maps objects fade away not too far rom him so the hidden cant even hide behind a bush without him seeing it BUT his disadvantage is that whenever he kills the hidden and sees it die, he crashes.

The same crash happened when I forced DX 6 on a 7600GT. It would change the hidden to an easily seen milky figure, but it would crash when you see him die.

And the old DX shader problems are really annoying because you can no longer hide from people. For instance, I could be up on top of the building on Highrise completely still and crouched down, only to get pistol sniped from a guy all the way across the map....and then he crashes.

well for me the crashes are when i see hidden dying sometimes. i think its somehow related to the dying animation or something, and rarelly i get it when i kill as hidden.

it doesnt matter if i kill the hidden,as long as i see it dying or it dies where im looking at no matter if there is walls or no i crash. and sometimes if i kill as hidden i crash.
