I don’t understand this. Either garry’s lazy, inconsiderate or I’m missing something here.
What I don’t understand is why these updates aren’t tested in some select team of beta testers for five minutes before publishing GMod updates publicly?
More than that. You release these half-arsed updates like the one now that means, because you couldn’t spend an extra five minutes test driving the new update, we can’t spend the next three days while you summon up the effort to fix the problem.
And this isn’t even the first time. This happens monthly, perhaps even more often, and it’s fucking rediculous.
All you have to do is create a damned SVN, pick a few people that are online, tell them to try the update and then ensure that you’re not about to make the entire game unplayable for everybody. Or alternatively, rollback the updates when they DO fuck shit up.
Unless I’m missing some impossibility or legal obligation by Steam not to distribute it, this just seems plainly irresponsible and assholish.
