Not that Valve will read it. Can't believe they don't have a proper bug tracking system. Well, I can believe it.

Oh I know!!! My brother n I have run into a really annoying-as-heck bug, and cannot find anyway to inform them about it. And then all the other bugs. And then I saw this monster comprehensive thread on their forums (which excluded the annoying bug we ran into lol)... and valve is like... 'meh'.

Well, the nice thing about the new steam 'look' is... it is giving us at MGS/WGS a wider window of 'doing better' for our own new redesign ;) You know... if steam sets the bar low, then its easier for the rest of us to do better lol.

Yeah, that was in the beta. But now web views aren't really really slow.

Now they just need to fix this:

:rolleyes:

Funny, they are blury even in non-retina. They are just all around crappy icons there. Coupled with the blue squares under 'notifications' 'messages' and 'username' in the main window upper-right ... their UI still looks halfassed as always.

In Topic: New 2018 MBPs released

Yeah, my 17" MacBookPro8,3 .. still going strong, no issues, hell, even runs faster with 10.6.8 on it than my newer piece of popsnizzle 15" retina garbage mbp with 10.13 on it.

Still waiting for a new MBP that isn't garbage.

Still.

I'm pretty sure the download is compressed. My internet bandwidth has long been limited to 2 Mb/s, and steam would consistently show 5 Mb/s or more, which I interpret as the bandwidth after decompression. Like in scp -C.

I only ever see 3.3mb max in my steam downloads... and thats on par with my sub-slow vdsl line.

They may have some stream compression going. But my point was more of "steam doesnt download a compressed file to one location, and decompress it into the installed location". It just goes straight to where it will end up without using up extra disk space to do it. Well... at least on windows. I have no clue what that broken-ass-ugly steam client does on the mac ;)

In Topic: MGS "Endless Space 2 - Collection" Hmm....

Publishers are retarded dicks in certain areas. (and SEGA is one of the worst)

The whole 'region lock' nonsense is just that... nonsense.

Also, there are 257 countries in the list, so I THINK that list shown is the 'smaller of the two evils' (79 countries vs 178). And you may have guessed at this point ... that its not as easy as saying "Asia countries" either... since, yup, ONE country in the asia region is actually allowed. And a couple straggler countries outside of asia are not allowed.

Its all bull poodoo.
