So, would people be interested in doing Achievements together at some point, on some server? Some of those are quite hard to get without help, especially those requiring playing with something like 5 people on your friend list. But some dicussion:

- Could it be done on the Mantrain at some point? Or could we use a temporarily started server?

- Would people be interested this only once, or many times?

Share your thoughts

I was lucky enough to stumble with a server in which cp_foundry was always on, and the people there (about 10) were all helping each other getting the achievements.
Thats how I got ma steam hat the day after the map got introduced.

I am not adverse to the idea, but know there are some servers (Sydler's Idle server, for example) that have a special feature that gets you all the achievements (except the last 2 of the replay update). You can see people get 5-7 weapons drop at the time (because of all them achievements).
>> No. 11218
I want in on this and I hope some other people will express interest as well.
I'm gonna have a hard time getting a few of the achievements otherwise, because I just don't know anybody on Steam.
>> No. 11254
Anyone else up to this? Should we try to set something up on IRC or something? Or actually, can you like schedule events on steam groups or something?

Hey there fuckers! so. im a pretty decent sniper voice, and im gonna make a voice pack that's only activated when you have the Huntsman equipped. (or maybe you'll have to bind some toggle key. idk yet. I know a lot of snipers prefer the Huntsman over the rifle and have complained in the Steam Forums and here and places and stuff. SO! here are a few lines that i think will do well. please! input or ideas are very welcome!

-Ya just got shafted!
-It's like a backstab that's useful, innit?
-Look like a bleedin' shish-kabob!

I'm not sure the conditions for specific voice responses exist for the Huntsman. They probably never set up a flag for it...

Same way you can't differentiate an environment kill from a telefrag in the kill feed, or the Ubersaw taunt kill from a regular kill.

By that I also mean that all snipers will be saying this regardless of what they have equipped.

Also you should write lip syncing scripts if you feel like getting fancy.

  Just wondering if anybody saved the movie posters from the halloween update with all of the classes costumes and the movie description.

I'm not sure why I need an embed but here:

Since nothing ever catches fire in TF2 except for people and Engineer's buildings, does that mean that they have the same technique as in Fahrenheit 451 to make things inflammable? If so, why doesn't Engineer use it for his buildings?

Don't forget, the maps are all just covers for secret spy bases.

I wouldn't be surprised if everything was just sculpted concrete or something.

I love how windows don't even get a little crack when you shoot 4 rockets at them.

My theory has always been this: every time you see the administrator, she's always in her control room with cameras everywhere. and when youre playing, zoom out and view the skyboxes. these places theyre fighting in are in the MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. so i assume everything is set-up much akin to Portal. Which accounts for the synthetic buildings. also, the items (e.g. buckets, sheets of metal) laying around the maps dont move when you kick or shoot rockets at them, so i assume that they're glued or locked into the ground. just props. so possibly the engineer cant use them, as they arent made of functional metal?

I know how hitscan works and Im good with shotguns and pistols but I still can't hit anything with Spy's revolver.
>> No. 11228

Probably your aim.
Revolver is more precise and slower to fire. With the pistol you at least have the rapid fire and, depending on your class, 200 ammo. With the shotgun, the spread is larger.

Am I the only one hoping it really is a character proposing to Pyro?
Though I guess a real person proposing to another real person might be cool, too. I guess.

>Perhaps one of the classes has finally plucked up the courage to propose to the Pyro. He/she/it has been waiting long enough.

There are so many delightful things about this statement, I don't even know where to start. I would have to invent new vocabulary just to describe how giddy this makes me.

That actually would be a great idea.

If it werent for a fact that we've already had a "vs Spy" thing.

I liked that discussion awhile back about how each class has a unique set of teeth, can we have something like that again?

Valve really puts a lot of effort into tiny things people might not even notice, like how cold air escapes the fridge in Meet The Medic, or Scout's fourth wall-breaking finger smudge in Meet The Scout. I love them for that.

Well, considering Scootma doesn't really HAVE an official character, her accent matches Scout's pretty closely, and her "attitude" matches that of a woman who's gone through everything she has (Eight kids... EIGHT. Who presumably taught Scout ALL THEY KNOW. Lord bless her), I think these soundfiles are very fitting.

The only other soundfiles I've heard of hers are of Female Spy, and I gusta'd the hell out of those.
>> No. 10620
She also has done some Medic, Scout, and she's working on an Engie right now.

Thinking of making up a French language pack for ChemicalAlia's Spy, myself, actually, once Christmas is over.

  if this is the inspiration for the second half of More Gun, then i will tip my many hats to valve.

So, it's been a little bit

How are you enjoying those new steampunk weapons?

Me? totally loving the Pomson 6000

Hoping to get the Third Degree & the Eureka Effect soon

I like the new phlog simply because of the way the particles hit the target. It uses more of a beam sword mechanic, while the other flamethrowers are like a super fast syringe gun. So, pyro does the damage it's supposed to be doing.
>> No. 11200
Yes, I will admit that the Pomson is overpowered as hell, but it certainly helps me feel like less of a sitting duck
>> No. 11206
every time i see a pyro using the phlogistinator, i almost go OUT OF MY WAY to kill them. i can't stand that overpowered piece of crap.

So last night, I played Left4Dead2 for the first time. I expected it to be more similar to TF2, but I was pleasantly surprised by the sort-of realism. When I was dying, I was much much slower than the others at full health.

And I asked myself, "What if TF2 was like that?"
People getting shot, burned, etc. constantly, I can hear my legs breaking when I jump from a high spot, and yet off I go, running like a quick little bunny?

So what are your thoughts on this matter? Would YOU like TF2 if it were more like L4D in that aspect? Would you absolutely hate it? Would you be like me and probably play it like that once and get sick of it?

If I remember right, its cartoon-ish style was what made TF2 stand out before it was released way back in the day. At the time, big-name shooters were designed to be hardcore realistic with wall-hugging action and etc.

If you're talking about realism in gameplay though... it would have made TF2 a very different game that would appeal to a much smaller audience.

The "slow down as you're damaged" thing works for L4D & L4D2 because the players are meant to place survival over "getting mad killz yo", and worry about getting to the finish line with limited ways of restoring health.

TF2 as it is now however, is all about run-and-gun and objective-based fighting, where you have to make kills and cap points while trudging through bullets and explosions. In L4D, you were supposed to desire avoiding conflict and reaching safety. In TF2, getting into fights is the whole point of the game, with survival as a delightful bonus, but not a requirement. Universally hampering players' speed (or some other variable) through damage would not appeal to the average player today. In fact, when the Natascha came out, a lot of players raged severely over its slow-down effect.
>> No. 11173
Having played a lot on a friendly fire server, I can tell you it takes some getting used to. As a result, I don't shoot that much in L4D. I knock them away and let the others shoot usually, get the ones no one is paying attention to, or I snipe.

I was always glad for the lack of realism when it comes to pyros. "fire! fire!" is less disturbing that "OH GOD! AHHHHHHH SOMEONE KILL ME!" ugh. I wish I could through tf2 chars ini L4D though, it would be funny as hell to mix them.
>> No. 11188
If you want more realism just play Battlefield 3.

Sorry to bug you guys but I haven't been able to play TF2 for almost a year because it keeps crashing on my lousy computer. I'm going to try and get a new one (needs to be a laptop so I'm looking at a Gateway NV57H26U). I recall there being programs out there to make TF2 run better on computers as well.

Can we have a best computers to run TF2 on/ways to make it run better thread?
>> No. 11179
First, dem graphics. Turn them down.

Second, start poking around for config files. Look for old ones.

Third, run in window. I've found it taxes the computer less.

Fourth, close all other programs. Including tray crap. Especially crap in tray.

Also, Gateway = Bad. Go with Toshiba.
>> No. 11180
I dunno. My Toshiba was pretty shitty for gaming. Couldn't even run the Sims.

I went the route of getting a laptop that's good for gaming, rather than fixing the games to fix my lappie. HP Pavilion's what I've got, and it's got pretty good graphics and sound- never any problems, really.

But if it's just a case of using your current not-so-great-for-gaming laptop, and fixing it to run it, I'm afraid I'm not much use.
>> No. 11186
This is a little off topic but...
Whatever computer you have, make sure to use one of Chris's fps configs.

They saved hell for my comp. [I use dx9frames with a cap at 90fps] I used to crash tf2 every 30 minutes and now I play 4 hours beautifully.
