Both games received some important updates for the open source platform
After launching the original Half-Life and Counter-Strike 1.6 Beta on Steam for Linux, Valve has now started to push updates for the two games.Both games are pretty stable, especially after so many updates over the years, but it seems that the version for the Linux platform will need some further improvements.
Here are some highlights for the new Half-Life update (it also applies to Counter-Strike 1.6 Beta):
• A fsp cap of 100 has been re-enabled. Users can override this behavior if they want to run faster by setting fps_override to "1", but some mods may not behave properly;
• Fixed movement when running at more than 100fps;
• "speak_enabled" cvar has been added. If it’s set to 0 then the "spk" and "speak" commands are disabled;
• "edicts" option has been added to the liblist.gam file, for use in mods that want more than 900 entities in their maps;
• Increased supported entity count in Counter-Strike 1.6 to 1800.
More details about Half-Life and can be found on the official Steam website.
