The game. Multiplayer works great. I played a good hour and a half without any trouble, in fact, I dare say performance is better than on my windows partition. I played as a US Marine the entire time, either as a rifleman, a (whatever the guy is with the thompson), and a machinegunner. Never a problem with any of the weapons or anything. Text displayed fine, all was well.
What does not
when i resized to 1280x1024 (i believe that was the res) the menus got all screwed up (input wasn't being proccessed correctly, and mouse clicks were interpreted as being about 128 pixels LOWER than the actual mouse cursor) After restarting the game (closing it caused my entire system to die, ctrl+alt+f1 couldn't get me into a virtual console). The menu was in the upper left of the screen, instead of the middle lower left, which was odd, but mouse clicks lined up with the cursor.
Graphical bugs were abundant, and I will upload screenshots. The skybox had little white boxes (cloud sprites without textures maybe?) that blinked in and out of view. Also, on levels with water, the refraction map (or rather the render target that recieves everything BELOW the water in order to simulate refraction) was in the skybox... It seems to me that maybe texture names(the indices) are being reused when they shouldnt be?
As I said before, the game crashed when i exited it. It crashed my entire system. It doesnt seem that it JUST crashed X, it crashed everything, because I couldn't ctrl+alt+f(1-6) to get to a virtual terminal. I had to do a hard shutdown.
What was not tested
Other classes of players, the Nazi side.

If you would like Day of Defeat: Source to get more attention please vote for it!
So some things I've noticed that you need to get Day of Defeat to run better are:
Q: It seems that dod source works once steam as been installed as it is
said in the steam section. But once dod is launched, steam stays in
focus and obstruct the screen. When I try to lower the steam window,
everything freezes and I must reboot the PC, the keyboard is not
Whats going on?
A: One of the known bugs with steam is that it always is on top and cannot be minimized, or else the system crashes. So if the steam window is still on your screen when you start your game, simply X out of it instead of trying to minimize it.
