A Source Engine update is available and will be applied automatically when Steam is restarted. The change includes:
  • Fixed clients being able to kick other clients from a server
There was also a news post last night on the Steam website hoping you're all enjoying HL2: DM. I know we are!

Too bad the Pistol Bug still seems to be in effect. Hopefully they nip that one soon, so it doesn't become expected functionality like bunny hopping in HL1.

Hmm. A bug I didn't know off. At least Valve fixed it. Good job.

anyone else notice the horrible network code for HL2 DM? i mean for ever server i play on its super choppy, and don't say its my pc cause CS source and HL2 run flawlessly... another crappy valve release, if they wanted to release an actual suprise they should have released TF or DOD. something people will actually play, 2 small unoriginal maps with 3 weapons and a gravity gun is frigging boring, either your killed by a bunny hoping machine gun nub or your killed by a flaming barrel.. so stupid

Yeah, I found a pretty lag-free server yesterday and it was great fun.
Give it time eh...

I bet you wish you could go back and edit that post now.. In future think before you speak.

client-to-client kick? :D funny.. or not...

the server situation starts to get better. more low ping servers.
and it's hard to stop playing, when you have something like hl2dm. :) some hours ago, i actually wanted to play just a bit.. but well.. that changed.. hehe..

Impossible to stop playing! It's so addictive and ridiculously fun. I don't think in 4 hours I used any weapon besides the Grav Gun, either.

Last i heard an actual surprise doesnt have to be good, just unexpected which HL2DM was by most. Also, 3 weapons??
1-Pistol
2-Revolver
3-SMG
4-Pulse Rifle
5-Crossbow
6-Shotgun
7-Grenades
8-Rocket Launcher

3? 8? I can see how you miscounted. :)

What would you prefer to be killed by? Personally, I was killed by machine guns, pulse rifles, plumbing fixtures, plastic pails, grenades (though I'm getting better at chucking them back), rocket launchers, radiators, office furniture, crossbow bolts, a few cars, .357 magnum rounds, and my own foolishness as I ran around carrying an explosive barrel for just a *little* too long.

A few servers I was on were laggy, but I settled into several that played just great. Some more maps would be nice and I'm sure they'll arrive soon; for now, I'm finding this a heck of a lot of fun.

I guess HL2 Deathmatch just isn't for everyone, but what is? In the meantime, if bunny hopping n00bs have got you down, I find that anything from a six foot table to a well-thrown file cabinet deals with them quite nicely.

if valve is so crappy why do you keep playing their games? lol, just wondering... i get tired of the constant bickering in life, of why someone doesnt like something but wont do anything about it, best way to stand up is to not buy their products...
i personally really like valve, and their products. id much rather be playing this than call of duty, or battlefield, or some other game like that (although farcry is pretty cool, but hl2 kind of ran over that :p)

I hopped onto a server last night and had a pretty fun time. I'm still not very good with the gravity gun though.

I keep on getting owned but I'm having fun. It did get annoying when I went into a 10 minute kill drought.

yay! maybe in 2006 they'll get around to fixing my choppy, distorted sound (that's if i'm lucky enough to actually sustain sound for longer than 4 seconds in-game)

ooooh - they managed to disable a single client side command that shouldn't have even been there in the first place. And have the nerve to call it an 'update'

woot! i wubs u valve - u are teh l33t best c0d3rz!!
