OCR TF2 Server - Anyone interested in trying out TF2 should join us!


Recommended Posts

Sorry I haven't been online pretty much at all, but my laptop's power connection thingy has turned out to be pretty loose, so while it's still functional it's out of commission on the grounds that plugging it in doesn't actually register. (Unless the cord is pressed just so, which can't really be maintained at the same time as doing anything else.)

I may be able to play occasionally from my friend's desktop, but it'll be intermittent at best.

This sounds like a job for duct tape!

*sigh*....Steam refuses to connect for me, so I can't play TF2. Or Portal. Or Most of my other games.

The weird thing is that it's only on my laptop. It worked fine on my desktop, but I don't have TF2 on there. And naturally I don't have it on my phone, either.

I've restarted my computer 3 times, and nothing happened.

I also can't watch YouTube on my computer... The new update freezes after 3 seconds.



Oh, and does anyone know if I can make it so that Steam doesn't start in Big Picture Mode? It's really annoying.

Now that I think about it... it's probably a problem with the beta version... and I can't opt out without starting Steam.. which I can't do...

Maybe I should turn of the internet and go offline...

Anyone who read this far probably had to much free time.

I'll shut up now...

Pika22 - You may try reinstalling steam. If you only reinstall the steam platform, I believe it will only reset your settings and preferences without touching any downloaded games or save data. Just download the installer package from http://store.steampowered.com/about/

May not work, but it's worth a shot.

It also may be an issue with your laptop internet.

Try purging your client files. To do that, make sure it isn't running, then find the folder where you have it installed.

Delete everything except steam.exe and the Steamapps folder. It says you should restart, but I don't remember ever having to. Anyway, launch it again from that same .exe, and you should be good to go after it re-downloads all the missing bits.

Best of luck.

It's not my laptop, everything else (sans YouTube) is loading fine, but Steam is having one of it's retarded moments...

EDIT: Sorry for the double post. Restarting my comp, be back in 5.

EDIT 2: Nope.avi. Not working. Gonna try uninstalling Hamachi, that might be the problem.

EDIT 3: Guess what? Nothing to do with Hamachi. Windows won't let me use the install file, I purged the client stuff, and I've restarted my computer 5 times.

Sorry about raging so much. Bleh.

This post had nothing to do with my raging.

Do people get on the server during the week? I've been checking the server, and no one's been on except on Friday.

EDIT: Weird... I had to connect to wired internet to log in, but now it accepts wireless.

Yayz! Now i can trade my naughty winter crate for a Strange Sticky Bomb Launcher!!!

Most of that stuff didn't work, but thanks anyways.

Triple Post? Seriously Pika? I thought you were much better than that!

Hey, has anyone here ever played an Orange Map?

I used to, back when I was a much angrier player. The random insanity and nearly impossible caps made for a good way to vent frustration when your team utterly failed at working together in a more normal game.

And the visual style, while decidedly lazy, is a nice change of pace sometimes. I get a little tired of the shades of Nevada a lot of the popular maps have going, after a while.

Why do you ask?

Me too. it's weird...

I figured out my problem with connecting to Steam though. I went and disabled every internet connection except my main wireless, and I was able to log in fine.

EDIT: Neeevermind. Steam won't connect. Stupid Steam...

EDIT 2: Steam is bipolar.

For anyone who can't get on right away, here are the weapon stats.

The Loose Cannon fires small cannonball grenades with a fixed timer of two seconds; you can prime the grenade similar to the Beggar's Bazooka by holding down the fire button. They do not explode on impact, but do push players back, and will do half damage if they hit any surface.

The Rescue Ranger has a clip size of 4 and half ammo capacity. In exchange, it fires bolts that can heal buildings from a distance. In addition you can use alt-fire to pick up a building at range; this costs metal to do, and marks you for death.

The Vaccinator builds uber at double speed(!), but overheals at 1/3 speed. However, while healing a target, you and that target gain 10% resistance to a specific damage type. This can be cycled with +attack3, which now defaults to the middle mouse button. The ubercharge provides 75% resistance to the specified damage type, and you are healed for 25% of that incoming damage on your heal target.

Well aren't those some spiffy items. And Attack3 is a pleasant surprise, although I'll have to edit my scripts to accommodate it.

The only thing that seems to use it right now is that medigun, I think. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

This could mean some interesting new weapon designs in the future, or just nothing at all really.

Hopefully Steam co-operates tonight so I can get on. I really want to see the Christmas-y maps.

...nevermind. Will be getting a new computer in a couple days, so I'll actually be able to play most of my games properly. At the moment, because my computer isn't all that great, I can't play Skyrim properly (I get like 8 fps), I get around 10-15 fps in Minecraft, and XCOM kills my comp.

So, yeah.

I'll probably swing by. I've been goofing off with the new Engy gun and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I'm waiting for the nerf to the range, because it's pretty ridiculous at the moment.

... I'm also trying to get more Naughty Crates so I can get a Strange Festive FJ or a Strange Festive Sandvich. The rest of them don't really interest me. I also have three of the new Sniper sideburns from the Nice Crates, which I'm willing to trade off to anyone who wants one. Otherwise they'll probably just get crafted into new hats.

So I have some items I'm willing to trade:

Festive Sandvich x2

Festive Buff Banner

Festive Ambassador x2

Festive Grenade Launcher x2

Festive Axtinguisher x3

Festive Ubersaw x3

Strange Tomislav x2

Strange Homewrecker

Strange Force-A-Nature

Glenberry Bonet (Demo hat)

Genuine Foppish Physician

Strange Part: Sappers Destroyed

Strange Part: Engineers Killed

Strange Part: Soldiers Killed

Edit: The economics of Naughty Crates on the market amuses me - you can snag them for like $0.50 - 0.60 at like 7-8 am EST, and yet at night they're like double that.
