Valve Releases New Half-Life Update

Half-Life fans, here's some random news for you out of the blue!

In what may come as a very random surprise, Valve has just released an update to Half-Life, almost 19 years after its release. Even odder is that the update patches minor bugs, patching crashes and exploits.

It's unclear what prompted the update to happen now of all times, but the changelog below does at least attribute some of the bugs being reported by users:

  • Fixed crash when entering certain malformed strings into the game console. Thanks to Marshal Webb from BackConnect, Inc for reporting this.

  • Fixed crash when loading a specially crafted malformed BSP file. Thanks to Grant Hernandez (@Digital_Cold) for reporting this.

  • Fixed malformed SAV files allowing arbitrary files to be written into the game folder. Thanks to Vsevolod Saj for reporting this.

  • Fixed a crash when quickly changing weapons that are consumable. Thanks to Sam Vanheer for reporting this.

  • Fixed crash when setting custom decals
