OCR TF2: Stab stab stab!

Recommended Posts

Apparently TF2 has been updated with some new paint colors and a "Festive Winter Crate."

Also, in case anyone happened to miss my rather vocal bitching tonight, I've been lagging to an insane degree lately. I thought it was just me, but Lumpy tells me that he's been experiencing the same thing. Either way, it's extremely annoying and has directly caused my death numerous times. (You try surviving when the game decides to lag and freeze you in front of a Pyro. Or hell, anyone.)

Basically, is there something going on with the server?

On an unrelated note, I may not be online much over Christmas break.

I get spikes frequently, have for over a month now. Its not constant, which almost makes it more annoying.

Hmm...in my case, they started two weeks ago, after Thanksgiving. Apparently the university suffered a power surge over the holiday and someone's been DDOSing their servers in the aftermath for shits and giggles. At least that's what the rumors say. (The DDOS, not the surge. The surge is fact.)

I've been getting this too, but it's not exclusive to our server... in fact, World of Warcraft also has random freezes and disconnects.

I'm planning on bitching to my ISP sometime this weekend, since this exact problem has happened to me before, though.

I'm so glad that the only problem me and my ISP have is not seeing eye-to-eye on Downloading Japanese Sentai.

That's Sentai. Not porn.

They seem to have no problem with porn.

Hooohrah! Who has two thumbs and just moved out of his mom's basement? THIS GUY! Now the plan is to at least find a part time job until I can find a nice "career" one.

Related to this thread: Hopefully I'll now have a MUCH more stable connection and won't random disconnect anymore or have the ~600ms latency spikes because someone else in the house tried to read their email!

Two new changes:

1. Apparently RED's map timer has been broken since the Halloween event. This has been fixed.

2. Custom maps (and event maps) will no longer appear on the vote list unless explicitly nominated. This is to prevent the rare case where ALL the maps on the list are customs. This will happen on BLU as soon as it leaves cp_pacman_wtf_plus. Also, Arena maps are back on the nominate list.

To be fair, if they started raising a fuss about porn then they'd have to deny service to every household with a man old enough to appreciate it. (Read: Most of them.)

I assume you took into account that some of the official (not custom) maps are listed as custom? I know Coldfront was listed as custom long after it became an official map.

Also, finally, no more eternal Upward sessions on RED. :D

Nice changes! Also with these changes, is it possible to expand the number of custom maps on the server? I think it's time we get more of a variety, and that it doesn't interfere with the mapvote plugin makes it finally viable.

I recompiled the plugin months ago to fix those.

Plus, it relies on a manual list of what's custom and what isn't. Which I've already created.

The current list of maps that it will automatically chooses from now are:

cp_badlands

cp_coldfront

cp_dustbowl

cp_egypt_final

cp_fastlane

cp_freight_final1

cp_gorge

cp_granary

cp_gravelpit

cp_junction_final

cp_mountainlab

cp_steel

cp_well

cp_yukon_final

ctf_2fort

ctf_doublecross

ctf_sawmill

ctf_turbine

ctf_well

koth_harvest_final

koth_nucleus

koth_sawmill

koth_viaduct

pl_badwater

pl_goldrush

pl_hoodoo_final

pl_thundermountain

pl_upward

plr_hightower

plr_pipeline

tc_hydro

Edit: Whoops, pl_frontier was on that list. Fixed now.

We could add new ones. I guess it's all a matter of "do we want to?"

Could we get a couple of arena maps back into the nominate list?

Aha. Ahahahahahahahahahahahaha...

er... I supposed it's only funny if you quote my post first, then notice that it includes text in the forums' white color tag.

Specifically, the text "Also, Arena maps are back on the nominate list."

Sure, more customs would be nice - now that it doesn't harm the complexion in the vote often with the new configuration of the plugin, having more certainly isn't a negative.

I like custom maps. That includes testing maps that aren't finished yet like Paranoid's map.

Which I'm going to try to work on over the Christmas break. I'm a slow mapper. ._.

I would also like to see some quality customs on the map list now that they won't clog the vote automatically.

Whoops, I missed this earlier today, but...

A required update for Team Fortress 2 is now available. Please run hldsupdatetool to receive the update. The specific changes include:

- Fixed first person spectators seeing particle effects on the wearables of the person they're spectating.

- Added the Pyro's "Foster's Facade" and "Stockbroker's Scarf" items as part of Tripwire's Twisted Christmas event.

----- See http://www.killingfloorthegame.com/xmas/ for full details.

Strangely, RED's autoupdater didn't force this update, despite people playing on it right now.

Geh! Honestly I don't like how that new gas mask looks. It's just too... white and doesn't seem like it fits in well. Just my two pence.

Not gonna lie, it scared me the first time I saw it through a sniper scope. It still died when i shot it though, so i was less frightened. :3
