Talk:Half-Life 2: Episode One Bugs
This seems to be a lot of error reports, instead of bugs. I have a lot of 'bugs' to list, if we keep going like this. I haven't gotten past the cliffside of the beginning of the game yet. -.- --AndrewNeo 12:54, 1 Jun 2006 (PDT)
- Why do you put these game specific bugs and errors(that we can't fix ourselves) on VDC instead of using Steam Support system? --n-neko 22:29, 1 Jun 2006 (PDT)
- Well, I always thought that Valve's Support is for "questions," not bug reports. The Feedback category is created more or less for beta testing and bug reports. Valve does seem to take a look at it once in a while. So, that's my rationale. People who have trouble with crashes are probably better off contacting the Support, but I submit more technical bugs like console errors or graphic corruptions. —Matveims 01:21, 2 Jun 2006 (PDT)
- (Theoretically. I'm the one who started it and I haven't actually had any indication that they pay attention to anything but beta feedback on pages they make--Alph Tech STUART 21:28, 2 Jun 2006 (PDT))
- And the Crash Reports is because there seems to have been some fuss over the VDC giving feedback to fix the stupid soundcache system or something. --Alph Tech STUART 21:28, 2 Jun 2006 (PDT)
- Because the SSS is for "That's your fault" problems, like outdated drivers. These are problems the entire community is having with the game.
- However, could someone using a browser that WORKS with the support system (I'm using IE7) please submit this message to Steam Support?
- Is Valve aware of the documentation on bugs compiled by the Valve Developer Community?
- --Alph Tech STUART
- Isn't the Steam Support system for people that have a genuine problem that needs the attention of a human being and needs fixing? This bug page has seen over a hundred edits. I have difficulty seeing which of those need the urgent attention of a real person, so to submit them to the Support system would just be damaging the Support system by reducing its signal/noise ratio.
- Since they are (largely) minor and not at all urgent, these bugs belong in a list where developers can pick through and identify the ones that need prioritising and ignore the ones that don't need fixing. Wiki pages seem to provide a decent format for this, so I see no harm in letting people continue to create these lists. --Giles 01:40, 8 Jun 2006 (PDT)
Please list your bugs by chronological order in the game, with how far in they are as a headline. Some of us have only gotten to a certain point before it crashed. --Alph Tech STUART 13:01, 1 Jun 2006 (PDT)
By the way, THE ALL CAPS WAS A JOKE ABOUT ME QUICKLY SHOUTING "SPOILERS" SO YOU WOULD KNOW THEY WERE SPOILERS WITHOUT MUCH INFORMATION AS TO WHERE THE SPOILERS WERE BUT IT'S COOL IF YOU WANT TO STANDARDIZE ON THAT SO OK --Alph Tech STUART 21:28, 2 Jun 2006 (PDT)
As you all have seen I've walked (not yet completed!) Episode One with the commentary track enabled. Even when I (twice done...) defragment and verify the game content for it, it's still empty in the closed captions box. Other nodes (which are not mentioned) are working correctly. I've seen there where more people having the same problem. Can someone verify the whole episode for us, to confirm if this is a problem for other people as well. --Jurgen Knops 02:44, 8 Jun 2006 (PDT)
- Are you using the Dutch subtitles/commentary? --Alph Tech STUART 17:31, 7 Jun 2006 (PDT)
- I always use English sentences. I have steam on the Enlish language settings. Half-Life 2 / Half-Life 2 Episode One runs both on English. And I thought there is no Dutch commentary/subtitle notes. Maybe you are confused with Deutsch (German). --Jurgen Knops 02:44, 8 Jun 2006 (PDT)
Indication of Valve attention
Hate to sound like a gushing obsessive "OMG I LOVVVE GABE NEWELL FOR MENTIONING SOMETHING PERIPHERALLY RELATED TO SOMETHING I'M INVOLVED IN!!!" fanboy, but !!!
"The feedback we value most highly, though, is the kind we get from players. Between email, bug reports, forum posts, and wiki contributions, we've already gotten a good idea of which elements of the game worked best, and how to make Episode Two even better."
I don't know what other wiki they'd be referring to, so... ^o^!!! --Alph Tech STUART 17:00, 9 Jun 2006 (PDT)
- Aha! That's why the Episode One trailer is now available though Steam ;). --Jurgen Knops 02:03, 10 Jun 2006 (PDT)
- I'm assuming you mean the Episode Two Teaser? --Alph Tech STUART 07:12, 10 Jun 2006 (PDT)
