Serious Sam 3 Update 174807
Build 174807 for Serious Sam 3 is released.
If you have previously opted into public beta, you already have this. For all others, here is the list of changes:

- Fixed slowdown due to constant resizing of HDR buffer when Netricsa HUD is on.
- Showing rendering resolution is now more accurate. (Shows size of HDR drawport and canvas it resides on.)
- Fixed erroneous calculation of object guide box handle size.
- Fixed a problem that would cause player weapon firing (for some weapons) to sometimes (randomly) be one frame late.
- Now using new Steam Workshop API that allows item sizes of up to 200MB, and should be more resistant to transient errors.
- Fixed survival medals not being shown.
- Linux: Gamepads are no longer disconnected if they don't have enough axes or buttons. This should also fix performance impact for such gamepads.
- Linux: Gamepad names are now logged.
- Editor: Implemented new macro function ApplyDamageTool() on base entity. This function exposes Editor's Damage Tool to scripts.
- Fixed an issue causing all split screen users to render primary user's crosshair icon instead of their own.
- Fixed player's view getting stuck when forced to look onto a target entity by script, if Free Look option is disabled.
- Added support for hardware gamma-correction for Linux and OSX platforms.
- OSX: Error will now be reported if cursor connect fails on OSX.

As you already know I had beta. Later I canceled beta. Now as soon as this patch has finished downloading Norton 360 detected Suspicious.Cloud.5.A and deleted Sam3.exe from steamapps\downloading path. http://img838.imageshack.us/img838/3149/wdsfndjihfdijgf.jpg Ye maybe it's false positive but I'm using Norton 360 and Steam for ages and I have never had this issue.
When I checked game cache Sam3.exe downloaded once again without issues.
That's weird.

According to http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2010-090200-2232-99 , Suspicious.Cloud.5.A is a heuristic check. This means that there was no specific virus found, but that the exe "looked suspicious". Since this is a CEG (custom executable generation) exe, it is quite possible that it looks different on your machine than on someone elses, and this can happen. To be sure that the exe is correct, check its digital signature in Windows properties. If the signature is to Valve software, and valid, then it was not modified.

Note that this is the exact same exe that was in beta for almost a month. Someone would have probably noticed if it really wes virus-infected. But it never hurts to be suspicious and double-check.

Valve software digital signature is OK. Thank you for clearly explanation.

where's the fix for black screen in last man standing ?
rdn Jan 16, 2013 @ 11:00am 
Are you already working on black screen bug in last man standing mode?
AlenL  [developer] Jan 17, 2013 @ 6:33am 
The last man standing fix is implemented and will be in the next patch (as far as I've seen on the diffs this morning).

thx for this update, it really fixed 95% of the slowdown caused when the Netricsa videos kicked in while playing

After this update was the crash from the combination Alt + Tab.
100% repeatable for me. Win7 x64 HP SP1 Rus.
He writes that he can not release the driver or video driver is not free.

In case of crashes, please create a new thread and paste .log file and .rpt file from the crash. Thanks.

did u find on OSX the bug why the frame rate is so low on extremley great laptops and why the smoke is PINK,RED,GREEN or BLUE!?
AlenL  [developer] Jan 20, 2013 @ 6:43am 
lylat, my reply was to ed_dream. In general, Steam is known to sometimes "register" an achievement, but never update it to Steam servers. We implemented a workaround for that where the achievements that we don't get back from Steam, we re-send them each time you play the game. Other than that, there is no known bugs there. if you have problems with achievements, I suggest you describe your problem in detail, but please do it in a separate thread. This has really nothing to do with the update. Thanks!
