  1. From my personal website: VictoryPit Community Night for November 6, 2015


    Hello all! I hope you are all ready for community night tomorrow! We have some much needed changes in store, and a few fun extras!
    First thing's first, the server's configuration has seen a second overhaul. We have removed some dated plugins and reworked our configuration files. Map voting was confusing before, and I have condensed it down into two files. By default, admins and users alike can now access all maps on the server. However, the map voting options is limited to a subset of popular stock and custom maps. This way, we won't get a bunch of strange or odd votes when nobody nominates anything.
    Secondly, admin menus and permissions have been cleaned up. If we can't trust our administrators, why should you? All administrators have been given equal access across the board.
    Next up, the removal of reserved slots. While some enjoyed the bonus of first priority, reserved slots have shown to be novelty at best and only seem to serve to drive away new potential community members who feel unwelcome when kicked. As such, they will be retired indefinitely.
    All configuration changes can be seen over at the GitHub Repository for the OCReMix Server!
    Lastly, what's a community without community? A longtime mapmaker who has showcased on OCR is back again with a new map! After five years in the making, we are proud to host pl_corrode! Let's see what all it has to offer tomorrow night during OCR TF2 night!
    Check it out at the Steam Workshop!



  2. Big update incoming tonight. Lots of crazy tenative changes.


    New feature : Weapon exchange and pick up. Weapons dropped by killed players can no longer be picked up for ammo. Killed players will now also drop a medium ammo box. Players that can normally equip the dropped weapon (proper class) can look at the weapon and press the 'action key' to exchange it with what they have equipped. The player's equipped weapon will be dropped on the exchange.
    Inspect Target has been changed to Inspect Target or Item. While having a decorated weapon deployed with no target under the cross hair and then pressing the bound inspect key (+inspect) , an interruptible view model animation will play.
    Random Damage Spread is off by default (ConVar tf_damage_disablespread is set to 1).
    Auto reload is on by default (ConVar cl_autoreload 1). Existing users will still use their currently set value. This setting can be changed under Advance Options or through the developer console.
    Updated various weapon descriptions to better detail the weapon's features.
    Class and Weapon Changes 
    Spy no longer smacks himself in the face while reloading a revolver (New Spy revolver reload animation that does not block cross hair)

    Dead Ringer
    Triggering Feign Death instantly removes 50% cloak meter
    Changed increased drain rate to a decreased drain rate. Overall duration of invisibility is still 7 seconds when accounting for initial spend of 50 cloak meter for triggering Feign Death

    Teleporters and Dispensers redeploy +50% faster (2.5x without wrench boost, 5.5x with wrench boost)
    Building pick up speed penalty reduced from 25% to 10%
    On Wrench equip change, buildings no longer self-destruct unless the building type is changed (i.e. Only Sentry explodes when switching from Wrench to Gunslinger)

    Ammo and Repair given to a shielded Sentry is reduced by the strength of the shield (66% reduced) when shield is active
    Engineer death keeps the Wrangled sentry shielded and disabled for 3 seconds, same as when Wrangler is switched away. Previously Engineer death caused disable state for only 1 second

    Added +15% swing speed.
    Added 20% repair penalty. Repairs will give up to 80hp per swing instead 100hp per swing.

    Vaccinator Uber deploys give the patient a 2.5 second bubble of 75% damage resistance of the current resist type and full crit resistance to that type. These bubbles do not disappear if the medic stops targeting the current patient. Multiple bubbles of different types can be applied to the same patient or multiple patients given the same resist uber each consuming 1 charge.

    New taunts and maps and whatnot, too. Apparently OCR beat the curve this time. Snowplow, Suijin, and Borneo are all maps we've had featured on the server. If you haven't tried them before, be sure to soon!




    I'll try to be on tonight to play the update, but it might be a little later. I have scrims tonight.

  3. Due to a complication with random users coming in harassing various channels, a password has been implemented for  the Mumble server. Any registered users who have connected in the past should not need to put in a password and can connect with no problems. This password implementation is not meant to keep out anyone within the community, but instead as a means to stop outside harassment.


    If you wish to make use of the server, or invite friends to it, simply ask myself (Gamemaster1379) or SuperDSombrero for the password for the server. Anybody with the password is free to distribute it to others. It's not meant to be a strict validation policy.

  4. Server Update for 3/18

    The server has been updated to the newest version of TF2. In addition, several config changes have been made.

    - mapCycle list has been added. The server will now pick from a more select list when choosing maps to vote on (this means that when nobody nominates, we won't see tc_hydro as a random pick anymore!). The nomination list is unchanged and all maps on the server can still be nominated for voting.

    - Map ctf_thundermountain has been added to nominations list

    - "Recent Maps nomination" set has been reduced from last 7 maps to last 2 maps.

  5. 1/30 FridayNight TF2!

    Come join us for the first new official TF2 Night of OCR!

    It's official, night one has been scheduled! Be sure to come on by if you can!

    830 ET/730 CT/630 MT/530 PT

    I know it may be earlier for some of you, but we're still playing with what times we think will be best for everyone. Also keep in mind, people will be coming and going all throughout, so be sure to check in with us later on, too!

  6. A special congratulations to our OCR Highlander team (#Town). Last night was night one of the new season and they won.

    Additionally, I have recently made a post on the OCRTF2 group about a possible revival of weekly TF2 nights. Be sure to read it!


    Sometime ago TF2 OCR community's past, we all once enjoyed one another's company in weekly gatherings on our OCR TF2 server. Unfortunately, time makes fools of us all, and due to various circumstances and obligations, our weekly gatherings grew less frequent until it was no longer routine.

    Though we have long since stopped our weekly TF2 tradition, the OCR community has been tight knit and we have stuck together. Not long ago, our community of regulars were able to come together and form a competitive highlander TF2 team--and already are 1-0 (Congratulations on the victory #Town!).

    In addition to the team, I have spoken to some community members elsewhere from OCR, and have gathered that there is interest in reviving our old tradition of a weekly TF2 game night. Because of this, I am now looking into doing so, and would like input and feedback from all of you!

    If you are interested, please provide response to the following:

    • Which evening is better for you? Friday or Saturday?
    • Of your chosen day, what timeframe will work best? Be sure to include a timezone in your respnose!
    • Are there any new maps on the server you would like to see?
    • Are there any special events or activites that you would like to see?

    If you are interested in restarting the tradition, let us know here or at the community forum over at http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=39889

    ( Even if you have no preference to the above questions, be sure to post regardless! We'd love to hear from everyone! )

  7. I've spent a lot of time since July fixing a bunch of bugs in Prop Hunt and adding a new feature or two.

    So, why am I mentioning this? Because I was talking with a few people about this on OCR and they were saying that we should have a Prop Hunt night some time.

    What would be a good day/time to do something like this?

    Since I develop PropHunt, I have a more-or-less permanent Prop Hunt server running at tf2.rbemrose.com:27015 (hosted in Chicago) so finding a PH server isn't an issue.

    I'd totally be up for it.

    Just a heads up, I sent quite a few invites out the OCR TF2 Steam Group. If you didn't get an invite, be sure to join in, and invite anybody else you think may be up for some fun times. I'll try to talk to Baha about getting a few more admins in the group so we can schedule events and send out (like Prophunt)

    By the way, a long time ago we used to hold pick-up games (scrims) within the OCR community, but that fell out sometime ago. If you guys would like, I could help with setting up some scrims again if any of you would like to try your hand at some friendly community competition (it would likely be 4v4 or 6v6, because HL is fun and all, but to get 18 people together is a bitch). My vote is for 4v4, it's a new format, nobody is very experienced, and is easy to get together. But I'll leave it up to all of you, if anyone is interested.

  8. Server Rules:

    1) Be considerate & respectful of others

    2) No pornography (text chat or otherwise)

    3) Do not flood voice or text chat

    4) No racism or other offensive remarks

    5) Please use channels for their intended purpose. (Users can create channels under User Channels if one is not available)

    * Administrators reserve the right to take action where they see fit, regardless of whether or not it explicitly violates the rules listed here

    * The rules can be modified at any time as seen appropriate

  9. 1-671420-560x95-5231-FF5519-FFFFFF.png

    With OCR being as active as it is in the gaming community, I figured it could make use of a Mumble server so all of our regulars could have a VoIP client for games that don't support or a better alternative to games that do.

    *Note to Team Fortress 2 players: Although a Mumble is available, it is asked that although a Mumble server is being provided, that using the in-game chat on the OCRemix server be continued as to not segregate those who prefer not to use Mumble.

    However, I'd like to extend the use of the Mumble server to the entire community of OCR, be it for video games, music discussion, so on and so forth. I have the server for one month and given feedback and usage of the server, will decide whether or not to continue to renew it.

    The IP Address for the server is: Port: 2162

    Slots: 30 (Might increase depending on activity)

    Location: Chicago, IL

    Current Admins:

    Gamemaster (Owner)



    Current Channels (May add more based on feedback):

    General Chat

    Team Fortress 2



    User Channels (Users can create their own temporary channels)


    Please post all questions, comments, concerns, and comments here.

    See you all there!


    If you guys check out the video or poster, you may see an unusually familiar name playing Engineer...

  11. leave them on and give us the power to vote crits. They bring all the boys to the yard, but when the yard is full it would be nice to have the option to remove them. Personally, it's not other peoples crits that bother me, it's my own when I am trying to rocket or sticky jump.

    I would have long since initiated vote crits if there were a viable method to do so. As I've said before, the only way to initiate a votecrits is through an exploitable plugin. The plugin was poorly coded and when exploited, effectively gives all players full admin access, which I refuse to implement. If a different plugin existed, I would initiate it to make use of votecrits no problem.

  12. If the MotD is going to list rules, put a note in on the MotD claiming that moderators and admins alike reserve the right to take action regardless of listed rules if they believe it to be in the best interest of the community.

    I remember from past experiences, if you don't state that staff reserves the right to take action against unlisted rules--there will be nuisances that will argue their way to no end, claiming the staff was unjustified, or try to weasel their way around rules.

    Also, some rules regarding offensive language should be in order

  13. Most of the other things I've wanted to take note of have been addressed already, however, one such thing is the inclusion of this plugin. http://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=161320 It is a must. There are hackers that blow VAC out their ass and go about wreaking havoc on servers, avoiding user prompted kicks due to constant name changes. This plugin is a way to shut them down and make them manageable by self elimination.

  14. I was under the impression that the hitbox for the head remained in the idle position when a character was taunting, and didn't move. I may be wrong though, as it's rare for a head to stray too far from the idle standing position during a taunt, and then for me to actually have time to aim at them.

    Also I don't think that's the correct use of the word 'irony.'

    Sombrero is correct, the hitboxes do not change--and the character will return to idle position by the end of the taunt--meaning that you have a standstill target to prep headshotting like most other taunts.
