Valve's seminal first-person shooter Half-Life has received a new patch, nearly 19 years after its November 1998 launch.

It's nothing major, to be sure, but it fixes a few crashes the community had pointed out. That may not be much, but it just goes to show that Valve has not given up on its most well-known game despite it being old enough to legally drink in many countries.

As for the patch notes themselves, here's what we've got:

  • Fixed crash when entering certain malformed strings into the game console.
  • Fixed crash when loading a specially crafted malformed BSP file.
  • Fixed malformed SAV files allowing arbitrary files to be written into the game folder.
  • Fixed a crash when quickly changing weapons that are consumable.
  • Fixed crash when setting custom decals.

Now when can we expect to see a new Half-Life game, eh Valve?
