Applications Affected by Bug #5159

Application Name Description version Downloads
Counter-Strike Counterstrike, originally created by Minh Le and Jess Cliffe, started in 1999 as an inofficial mod to Valve's successful 1st person shooter Half-Life and quickly became one of the most well-known standalone video games in the world and integral part of the e-sports community. Valve now holds copyright to the game and its current version 1.6 needs to be run on Valve's gaming platform Steam.

The game revolves around moderately paced tactical teamwork and does not feature a story. The setup is as follows: Two hostile teams, called Terrorists (Ts) and Counter-Terrorists (CTs), compete against each other in real time, but on a per round basis, meaning that once a player's character is dead, he will not be respawned until the current round is over by victory or respective loss of either one team, the victory conditions depending on the map type.
Common setups are:
- DE-Maps
  The Ts have to set a bomb they spawn with at either of two predefined locations or enable the destruction of the sites by eliminating all of the enemy team. CTs have to prevent them from doing so by either killing all of the enemy team before the bomb is planted, holding them back until the timer expires or defusing the planted bomb.
- CS-Maps
  CTs have to rescue hostages in time while Ts fight them.

Due to the low ressource requirements and fluent gameplay Counterstrike 1.6 is still being played and thus maintained by Valve. However, there have not been any changes to the existing version since 2003.

Half-Life 2

1998. HALF-LIFE sends a shock through the game industry with its combination of pounding action and continuous, immersive storytelling. Valve's debut title wins more than 50 game-of-the-year awards on its way to being named "Best PC Game Ever" by PC Gamer, and launches a franchise with more than eight million retail units sold worldwide.

NOW. By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviors even the emotions of both friends and enemies The player again picks up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people he cares about are counting on him.

The intense, real-time gameplay of Half-Life 2 is made possible only by Source, Valve's new proprietary engine technology.

Source provides major enhancements in:

  • Characters - Advanced facial animation system delivers the most sophisticated in-game characters ever seen. With 40 distinct facial "muscles," human characters convey the full array of human emotion, and respond to the player with fluidity and intelligence.
  • Physics - From pebbles to water to 2-ton trucks respond as expected, as they obey the laws of mass, friction, gravity, and buoyancy.
  • Graphics - Source's shader-based renderer, like the one used at Pixar to create movies such as Toy Story and Monster's, Inc., creates the most beautiful and realistic environments ever seen in a video game.
  • AI - Neither friends nor enemies charge blindly into the fray. They can assess threats, navigate tricky terrain, and fashion weapons from whatever is at hand.

Note: Natively available for Linux.
