Steamworks Player Hubs

Bring your Steam account to life in the virtual world.  Player hubs are like game hubs, but instead of being all about a specific game, they are all about a specific Steam player.

playerhubsPlayer & Game Hubs come together in an exciting new Anarchy Arcade feature that basically lets you create a media-rich, safe, and automatic 3D public hangout that you and your friends can enjoy. Stay tuned for more on this amazing new feature!

Saving & the new console command: persistent_save

In version 2.0 of Source Media Arcade any customizations that you make to the map or to your item library during play will normally be saved when you close the game or change maps.  In most cases this is fine, but some people have unstable computers and would feel much better if their changes were saved instantly to avoid possibly losing their work due to a crash.  Today I added in a new Boolean console command called “persistent_save” that will instantly save any item file or map arrangement as soon as you make changes.
