Ok... After the recent update, all source based games i play chrashes ... My mates says the error message is "[SBT] SharKooN has left the game (no steam logon)" What does this mean, and why does it happen all the time? Im getting really annoyed at this, especially because i cant play Clanwars, IT JUST CHRASHES :( So, can anyone help me? Im afraid to ask at steam forums (they say im noob :s) Teh SharK - Drinking a beer in school (:beer:)

It's plaquing us all, don't feel too bad...

The simple fix is to right-click your game in the Steam play menu and select Properties. Click Launch Options and enter the following line:

-dxlevel 81

Click OK, and start your game. Your graphics settings will be returned to default every time you start with -dxlevel 81 in your launch options, but at least it'll run smoothly! We're hopin' Valve will get their act together and "patch the patch," cuz it's killin us all.

UPDATE: The 9/23 patch has been... well... patched. You can now play Source-based games in all their former glory!
