I'm starting to think it will also be delayed. HL2 was supposed to start pre-loading yesterday...it didnt....cs:source is supposed to be playable today, so far it isnt...at this point, I dont even need a :lame: excuse as to why everything is being delayed, I just wish valve would actually comment on such things-so all of us arent sitting here waiting to play something that isnt coming out. They like to leave us in the dark. =/

it will start tonight alogn with an additional 60meg update with soem kinda benchmark stress test utility for hl2 perf?


" Quick update:

- ATI/CZ users will get turned on later tonight for the CS: Source test

- An update will be out today as well. This is largish (~60 MB).

- The size of the update is due to the Video Stress Test it includes. You'll be able to do some initial performance analysis using this test and report the data back to a central server. The results of the VST will be posted on Steampowered.com.

- HL/2 pre-load will begin tomorrow. It was ready yesterday, but we decided to use the bandwidth to get out the VST first since I get pelted with zillions of questions from people asking how their PC will run Half-Life 2."

Oh yea lol. I remember that. The funny thing is, I think we scared everyone from speaking their mind about the drivers now. :D
