Shader pre-caching update: SEVERELY BROKEN on Linux and Mac
Valve broke CS:GO. Recent threads "Linux visual glitch" and "MacOS visual glitch", I made this thread to try funnel reports together with a useful name (i.e. the update that broke it).

Massive visual problems, insane tearing and colour issues. Player models are broken beyond description.

At first I blamed a Ubuntu OS update but then checked the Steam Library->Downloads and there was an update today "Shader pre-caching update".

Unplayable. Please fix.

(For me it is 2021-12-11 NZ)

I saw a few people claim that verifying game files helped. It does not help, I just went through that process.

i just loaded up 1.38.1.1 and at least on the home screen seems to be resolved.

same issue on Arch linux tried latest drivers and downgrade game

yeah, it's the most broken update I've seen. I want to play games tonight and now I can't because I only play CS, if I persevere for a few more decades I'll get up to 1:1 kill death ratio..

I tried changing nvidia drivers, didn't help. I tried deleteing ~/.cache/ didn't help. That was before I found out Steam had pushed an update.

Now we wait.

I have submitted a bug report which I hope finds its way to someone that can contact the relevant people at Valve.
