    Is the beta on an every Friday update schedule, like Dota 2?

    No, that would require ray-tracing (or a ton of hacky code with projected textures).
    What they need is to get better textures that don't look so low resolution.

    Does Crysis 2's DX11 update use ray-tracing or hacky code/projected textures?

    Because from what I heard, their implementation of penumbras wasn't really impactful on framerate.

    Yes. Getting banned from one source game means getting banned from all source games

    The thing is, that they ARE low resolution (512x512).

    Same with L4D2, but L4D1 implemented $detail so it was a lot less noticeable.

    If I get the beta (or when the game comes out) I'll probably spend a good amount of time recreating the textures (Trying to make it look the same as possible in terms of design / location of grass etc) and having them higher res (anywhere from 1024^2 to 4096^2 depending on the situation) with SSbump and $detail.
    I'll probably send to VALVe and ask they add it to CS:GO retail.

    Does Crysis 2's DX11 update use ray-tracing or hacky code/projected textures?

    Because from what I heard, their implementation of penumbras wasn't really impactful on framerate.
    Crysis 2's "Variable Penumbra" just blurs the shadow of an object the further away it is from the caster (Like how shadows fall-off and ambient light effects them in real life)
    They are not actually Penumbras.
    Source's baked lighting can have penumbras - They may be hard to see, but where an object casts 2 shadows, and where they separate, that is a penumbra.

    Accounts had to fill out the survey first, so I doubt somebody left steam already that was physced enough to apply for the beta.

    So I wanted to upload some gameplay footage today and since I'm on a new PC my recorded Fraps footage can't be opened in any video editor. It must be a codec problem but I've tried reinstalling them like three times now, what do I do, people?

    EDIT: I'd better post that shit in General Ingame Media thread.

    For those who somehow want better shadows (maybe)

    you can put -csm_quality 2 in your launch options.

    csm = cascaded shadow mapping.
