Post news RSS working around recent ep2 updates

The recent update to Episode 2 has made the mod crash during start up. To continue playing you will need to edit the gameinfo.txt file in the swarm folder. The SteamAppId needs to be changed from 420 to 218. When the tools are functional I have been working on the third level. I hope Valve can sort out this support for mac users quickly.

Having Trouble starting up the mod? Getting the "SetupArrayProps_R:arrayprop'(null)'is at index zero." error?
The recent update to Episode 2 has made the mod crash during start up. To continue playing you will need to edit the gameinfo.txt file in the swarm folder. The SteamAppId needs to be changed from 420 to 218. Your gameinfo.txt file will need to look like this to play the mod. Also make sure you save the file then restart steam for the changes to take effect.

{
game "swarm"

FileSystem
{
SteamAppId 218 // GCF for Episode 2
ToolsAppId 211 // Tools will load this (ie: source SDK caches) to get things like materials\debug, materials\editor, etc.

Also you will need to restart steam after making these changes. Sorry forgot to mention that.
