Farewell Scaleform, embrace Panorama: Aug. 30 update retires old UI

Valve have now fully embraced the Panorama UI, officially retiring the old version of the user interface, Scaleform. Until last night, Aug. 29, Scaleform was available through console command "-legacyscaleformui", an option no longer supported. Further, various optimisations were implemented for the brand new Panorama UI, as well as quality of life and bug adjustments.

In-game adjustments were also made to Mirage and the recently-released MP5-SD. The dusty map received an aesthetic touch-up in the T-spawn area in the form of fixed texture blending, meanwhile the silenced SMG had the metal on its ejection port darkened.

Lastly, Valve implemented a free version of CS:GO that allows users to play offline and view matches on GOTV. Users are able to download this version of the game by searching "CS:GO - Free" in the Steam Store.

Below are the release notes:
