Installation was perfect
Game booted in about 20 seconds
Joined multiplayer quick game with no connection problems
After ~15 minutes of gameplay, still played strong
This layout resulted at an fps varying greatly between 10 and 30 fps. Not great, but definitely playable.
Was able to host local server, but graphics kicked out a few seconds into game if not turned down.
Can hear other players using voice commmunication in game.
What does not
Efficiency: while not as bad as in other reports, this configuration leads to a solid 60 fps with all settings on highest in Windows (Vista 64)
Running same graphics while hosting a server as while using a dedicated server.
Anti-Alaising (Only option was "None")
Increased Model/Texture Detail (Increasing above Low resulted in crash)
System text does not render correctly, creating difficulty when reading developer console.
Cannot hear other players use voice communications in lobbies
Cannot use Voice Communication.
What was not tested
Playing with Friends
Higher Difficulty (more zombies on screen at once than "Normal" mode)
Lights on cars or indoors were visible through textures (http://i40.tinypic.com/p9gkz.jpg) Only 1 dead zombie renders, the rest fade away (may be a game function at the lower settings) The playability and apparent stability gives me reason to rate this on the level of silver. I believe it's moving in the right direction, and few of the bugs effect game play long term.

To change startup settings, right-click on the game in Steam, select
"Properties, then "Set launch options...". You can add any of the
following options, seperated by a space.
If you have multiple screens, you'll probably find that the game tries to stretch over all screens, instead of just one. In this case, you'll need these options:
