You know, yesterday I played a match on 2fort that was probably a 10 v 10 scout only match. It was the most awesome round of 2fort ever.


Areyou talking about the one we did in the bar room?

I kicked so much ass it wasn't funny.

It was actually pretty fun to grind achievements on an achievement server for this update.

Watching an army of scouts trying to kill a jumping Heavy yelling "Communism will NOT allow you to take my sandvich!" was a great time.

With all the scouts around i decided to get the last 2 updates for my heavy. I finished getting "don't touch sandvich!" where you have to kill 50 scouts with natasha, and as you can imagine, that did not take very long.

Gmail chat is about your best bet on that front. I don't use any IM clients.




Playing last night was fucking horrible. Everyone on my team was a scout except for CK and myself. Our team was a massive joke. We'd pretty much get our heads caved in for 10 minutes trying to cap their points and lose. Then they'd turn around and cap all our shit inside of a minute. Not fun. =\

I've been playing with the FaN, the triple jump is pretty sweet when used right. I made a quick vid showing some good places.

nice video! as expected, the triple jump could be very useful. i'd watch out for snipers tho. when your flying through the air for a second or two, that's all the time a decent sniper needs to pick you off.

The Sandman sucks. Worst thing to happen to TF2.

Playing as heavy is no longer fun or viable. So I probably won't be playing much until the scout numbers return to normal or Valve fixes the stun bullshit.

It sucks when you get tagged, but I like it. Adds another defensive measure and the game is lacking in that department..

The sudden third-person view is the worst part. It's like being momentarily transported into an MMO.

And there's no reason it should counter ubers. The best uber counter is an active defense that prevents the enemy from building and coordinating ubers in the first place.

Valve will fix it, just like they fixed the stupid +50 HP on the backburner.

Yeah, Sandman turned the scout in to the *One* thing I didn't want it to be.

That's because it's not a website, it's the game server. Websites are for douchebags.

I am new to PC gaming and i have an older computer so i need help updating.

I keep getting an error message when i try to launch TF2 that says

"Unsuported Video Card

Your video hardware does not meet the minimum requirements that we have set for the game. If you choose to continue and run the game anyway, you could have problems with stability or performance in the game."

When i click the "continue anyway" button the game loads and i get the Valve and Source screens. Then i get to the loading screen with The Medic, Spy and Heavy. It stays on that screen for a while then my computer either restarts or I get a error message that says

"Your graphics hardware must support at least pixel shader 1.1 to run this game"

Is there anything i can do?

I would rather the Sandman push back ubers like an Airblast, with differing strengths of push depending on the distance. You'd think anything invincible in a video game would at least be able to get pushed back, not stunned in place (unless it was a MASSIVE hit, but this is just a baseball).

So I played my first game of Arena ever today. Wow I got raped. Granted, the whole "scouts everywhere" thing kind of changes the aspects of arena.

Also unlocked natascha with the heavy today. I feel like I can 1-2 more kills each round using that instead of sasha. again, maybe its just all the scouts.

Yeah that's most likely your only option. If you have a PCI Express slot Newegg has 9600 GSOs for $70-100. I only have an 8800 GTS and my machine runs TF2 perfectly, so you should have no trouble at all running TF2 with a 9600.

You could put -gl in your launch settings. I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I'm sure someone could elaborate on what OpenGL does and if I'm making any sense.

Dude... your card is at LEAST 8 years old then. Which probably means all the other parts are that old too. You just need a computer.

Can anyone help me figure out what is going on with my custom sprays?

I made a new spray out of a jpg. Have the .vmt and .vtf in both materials\VGUI and materials\VGUI\logos. Go in game, go to options, import the sprays. They show up there fine.

Go play either a server I make myself, or join one, hit t, and see nothing.

Ideas?

Edit: Sprays are not disabled on my local server.

If you've got CS:S or DOD:S, load up the spray in there and then find the file it got turned in to. For some reason TF2 hates sprays.

Or you could go to FPSBanana.com and get a spray there.
