Better be fast, stupid steam maintenance.

Now tell them to give us our damn weiner bomb medals.

Problem: You're excited about the upcoming tourney, but there aren't enough matches to watch yet.

Solution: Download matches from the summer tourney (They've fixed the backwards-incompatibility - I just watched the UNO / BOB Badwater match - what a cliffhanger!)

Steps: Save demos from that link to your TF2 directory. Start TF2 and hit ~ to open the console. Type "playdemo thefilenamehere" (without quotes), replacing "thefilename" with the name of the file you chose. The demo will load, and you can move the camera around. If you want to speed things up, you can open the console again and type "demoui" (minus the quotes) for a control menu.

Works great, but you have to be willing to accept some minor graphical issues.

Graphical issue, or helpful annotation?

Why, hello Mex's back. Have you met my knife.

Oh, it seems you have.

Yeah, I don't know what was going on in that match pants, I haven't been stabbed so much as a medic in a long, long time. I guess my spider-sense took a vacation that day=P

Mex has lost his mojo! Muhahahaha!

Not sure why I never tried, but logged in on a European server (being in Holland for a few weeks).
Ping time 10ms instead of 100 or higher and I actually noticed I died less. Then again, maybe the level
of players was less as well. Kinda noticed that too

My point is...where is the European Goodjer Server? Someone step up!

Take your pick - it's not an accident that I only posted the screenshot of myself, though. I didn't want anyone to think I was editorializing.

Yeah, I had other issues to. I would get those error messages on all the pyros but I would also have characters randomly start on fire. They wouldn't be on fire in the game, just appear that way in the demo. It was confusing at first wondering why half my team was on fire before the match started.

Currently downloading the 11 trillion custom maps you guys have running on your public server so I can hop in on the madness.

I'm currently on that page right now

At: pl_boundary_rc2.bsp.bz2

Almost done!

Back to the grind. *right click* enter *right click* enter

Hey there BNice - welcome aboard! Mostly, the pub runs default maps. You can automatically download maps when the server switches to one you don't have, but if you want to be super-proactive all the custom maps we have are posted at http://gwj.skulljackpot.com/maps/. Not all of those are currently used, and I should probably do some housekeeping on that server, but if you have all those you shouldn't need to download anything on map changes.

Actually, on the pub we try to mostly stick with the normal maps. There are a few community ones in there, but they are the ones that have been around for awhile. The private is where all the serious crazy maps happen (cough cough ZIG cough).

EDIT: Gah! Tannhaussered!

We don't play like 50% of those maps on the list. I'd suggest just downloading them during map switch (unless you're really afraid of getting in slower than most everyone) as you'll usually only get the ones semi-frequently played.

Good to know that list of maps exists! I have the game set to auto download maps, but for some reason I occasionally get an error saying the download fails. Happened the other night when Frontier came up. I had to go out and try to find the map and manually download it. By the time I figured it out I jumped back into the game just in time for the match to end and we switched to a new map anyways.

I think that came up on the vote last night and I asked the same question.

Also, I was playing on the Reddit server last week and circlejerk came up. That is a stupid map.

I see someone hasn't gotten the "Stack overflow" error when downloading a new map... And then you get kicked from server and get to replay refresh fortress for an hour, cos no one leaves the damn private for ages

Oh yeah, that does occasionally happen with some of the larger maps...

New members cant use tags as a spam prevention step. They'll start to work in a week or so or when you post some more.

Tags not working is spammer prevention. It'll go away over time as you post more. Invite sent!

I see. That's actually a bit of a relief, I thought I was just dumb and couldn't make them work. Thanks for the invite!

Could I get added to the TF2 group also? I'm in the regular GWJ STEAM group, but not the TF2 one.

Invite sent.

Spoiler:

Man, now that everyone's joining up we're gonna need to get another crop of worthwhile pubbies. :)
