OCR TF2: Stab stab stab!

Recommended Posts

You are aware last year's event started on the 27th, 4 days before Halloween?

Granted, that *was* on a Wednesday, so the precedent could go either way.

so what do you think then? we start a pool, everybody toss a scrap in, closest to the date and time wins it all then?

Hopefully this finally takes care of anyone who was still having regular crash issues.

According to someone on the hlds_linux mailing list: "Client crashes still occurring, my server just lost 5/12 players at once."

I've been unable to play ever since the crashing started. :(

I've been told that people who are still having crashing problems should try the Steam Beta update.

This might be old news but the Night of the Living Update happened:

http://halloween.tf2mods.net/

I do hope a lot of this makes it into the game.

That's all fan-made stuff. We won't know what Valve adds to their update until tonight or tomorrow.

Side note: I won't be on until 7:30pm EDT tomorrow. If Valve updates before then, TEST will be out of date, but RED should auto-update.

Yeah, I know.

A lot of it is showcased in the Steam Workshop, but there is whole lot of awesome stuff here.

I'm specifically rooting and hoping for the Van Mundy and the Serpent Slayer packs to get added to the game.

My apologies if I made it sound like this was the official Valve Halloween update.

I haven't gotten around to testing my voting extension again since last week. I need to stop playing TF2 and actually test it.

Of course, knowing my luck, the Halloween update will break it.

On an off topic, 9 of you on my friends list have Back to the Future on your Steam wishlist, it's on sale on Steam for $10 through 10am PDT tomorrow.

Thanks for the heads up. I grabbed it. :)!!

euuggh come on update, get out already!

I'm kind of glad they didn't release it quite yet, because I wasn't around to update TEST.

Anyway, if you have all the OCR servers in your servers list, you may have noticed that BLU is now open while RED is locked. This was due to me not wanting to have to kick people from RED when I switch it over to the event server later tonight.

I posted that 10 minutes ago. What's more, BLU is already updated and restarted. Must have beat the rush because Event (RED) and TEST are slow updating.
