OCR TF2: Stab stab stab!

Recommended Posts

If I don't play in the event on Saturday, I apologize in advance.

I've been making what have been (I think) great strides in getting my TF2 Voting extension completed.

A lot of it is just interfaces and infrastructure, but this time I'm keeping it a lot closer to the SourceMod vote system's code, so that it's a lot harder for me to screw up. :P

Reminder:

CaptainYahoo's Prop Hunt Event: The Full Server Edition is today at 8:00pm EDT / 5:00pm PDT / Midnight Sunday UTC on red.ocrtf2.com.

Also, a lot of people have been complaining about lag on the server. I'm sure exactly what's causing it. It doesn't help that I'm personally not seeing it.

I'm guessing it involves connections between networks on the Internet, and it appears that IJ's server has a similar problem on the other side of the US.

Either that or it really is a client problem, but I have no idea what settings would cause/fix it.

I wasn't seeing any lag on IJ's server myself last night (besides the usual 100+ ping sort), even though I'm on the other side of the country from him. What's stranger, the brutal net loss I was experiencing on BLU/RED over the past couple of days disappeared as suddenly as it arrived. Who knows what's going on at this point.

For my part, I had been experiencing connection issues with TF2 in general, then the internet went out at my place for a couple of days, then when it came back everything was hunky dory.

Perhaps the tubes are clogged?

I want to see the Widowmaker buff passed. In its current state it's an absolutely terrible weapon =/

I also want to see the Reserve Shooter change pass, but I got this feeling it's gonna be overpowered...

I've also gained a newfound love for the Detonator.

Yeah. I noticed. Apparently it's blocked everywhere but Spain because of the song choice I used. Worse come to worse, I'll just drop the music altogether. |<

EDIT: Here's the new version, with the music replaced with something else so all the non-Spaniards can enjoy it. I've edited into the previous post as well, so people aren't sent to a dead link.

That was thoroughly entertaining. I don't know what the original music was but the replacements worked well, IMO. Also, I was REALLY lagaporting wasn't I? Yeesh. :roll:

I'm glad you liked it. :)

The original music was (the rather fitting, if overused) Crazy Frog - Axel F.

Is that some yin-yarn I hear? :3

You better believe it. |D

Short version: Valve pushed an update out to the schema a bit early, revealed a butt-load of new things coming out eventually.

New items include: Sniper Bandana Hair, Heavy Bandana Hair, Spy Disguised Hat, Heavy Lumberjack Hat, Demo Hendrix Hat, Engineer Hair, Engineer Blueprints, Mighty Pirate, The Bootlegger (boots), The Scotland Shard (bottle), Bloody Bombs (glasses), Solder Sea Captain Hat, Pyro Sailor Hat, Heavy Gym Hair, Scout Hotdog Hat, Pyro Birdcage Hat, Medic Stahlhelm Hat, Scout Backwards Cap, Sniper Necklace (necklace), Flair Buttons (equippable buttons), Medic Pocket Square, Medic Stethoscope, Spy Inspector Hat, Sniper Cork Hat, Pyro Flamenco Hat, Engineer Cranial Claw, Spy Specs, Scout 3D Glasses, Solder Cowboy Hat, Pyro Conscience, Scout Provision Hat.

HiFive Taunt Enabler added, seems to be activated by holding down the taunt button for a few seconds.

The Pummeling Picket has "item_class": "saxxy" and "item_type_name": "TF_Weapon_Sign", and also has customizable textures. Can be used by every class except the Spy and Engineer.

The Bootlegger, Scotland Shard, Bloody Bombs, Mighty Pirate are part of the 'Swashbucklers Swag' set.

The Pocket Medic can now be equipped by the Soldier.

Also added are Photo Badge, ID Badge, Stampable Medal, which have a "can_customize_texture": true, attribute.

Customize Texture Tool is a new tool you can use to create custom textures.

An expiration date attribute was added, use unknown.

Christmas Key 2010 was added, which seems to be a placeholder for a new holiday key.

Athletic Supporter and Superfan made craftable.

The beta weapons were added, with beta names, which seems to be a mistake.

And I /just/ managed to get all the pyro hats. Harumph.

I tried collecting all the Spy hats before, but then I stopped and thought "wtf am I doing?"

Instead, I just get the hats I like. I still keep a few extra around, though.

Incidentally, I think it'd be funny to get the Medic Stethoscope (assuming Misc) and equip it with the Otolaryngologist's Mirror (Head) and Physician's Procedure Mask (Misc) for a themed set.

I'm not sure I like a new Holiday key being introduced at this time. From the timing, it heavily implies there will be a Halloween crate type.

Ugh, more themed crates? I hate those things.

I already have an unpronounceable mirror and the physician mask, so maybe I'll try and pick up a stethoscope eventually.

Pyro flamenco hat sounds hilarious.

What's that "Engineer Blueprints" in the list of items? Valve's gone on record saying that new buildings are a pain in the ass to balance, but I can't imagine how blueprints would fit as a cosmetic.

Also another item set for Demoman, wonderful. *eyeroll* At least it's not Demoknight or Soldier again. Actually when you put it that way, all he's got in the non-Demoknight department is the Scottish Resistance, Loch n Load, and Caber...

EDIT: In completely unrelated news, I've entered Launchpad A8 into a gameday at TF2Maps.net scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday the 27, at 2PM Pacific time. (That's 5 PM Eastern.) Rather, that's when the event as a whole will start -- no word on when Launchpad specifically will show up. (Or if it will at all, but I got first dibs on the "post here if you want in" thread so I think I'm good there.) So feel free to show up if you feel like giving feedback. Feedback's always nice.

Well, the thread links to a possible picture of it. That picture shows it as a Misc item in the Back region that's something that looks like a quiver with blueprints sticking out of them.

Yeah, I saw that when it went up initially... before it had the subtitles. I like that sort of thing but... I wonder if it might be improved by getting actual voice actors instead of using the Garry's Mod technique of just splicing in-game dialogue.
