Ukick has transcended hattes. Now he just wants a greater variety of taunts with which to litter our screenshots.

When he posted, that information wasn't on the store page. It just said that it would be announced later.

Yup

How will the taunt be different from the existing pyro taunt?

No ax/sign/sledgehammer/rake/lollipop?

It shoots lightning and hell fire?

We don't know!

Well, the Pyro only plays 1 power chord, so clearly the new taunt is going to be a full solo...

Not just a full solo -- "harnessing the unholy power of the Dark One (Yngwie Malmsteen)" means endless sweep-picked arpeggios to metal/orchestral accompaniment.

I was kinda hoping it is an all-class taunt, but it's probably only appropriate (and easiest) for the Pyro. Hopefully Valve has done the proper research.

badwater and steel were fun last night. Have a good replay of a nice headshot on poor scout hanibal that I'll upload later.

I present to you, the alternative economy of tf2!

Gentlemannes, Linux release is upon us

I tried to get Ubuntu working in a virtual environment earlier this week, but I have an ATI card and the drivers refused to cooperate

Whoah, I've never looked at their store before. I kinda really want a copy of this lithograph.

Time to sudo make sandviche with mannes.

So I'll likely not be able to play much this weekend between Valentines Day and my wife not working this weekend. But just pm me if you want a Tux and we'll coordinate making it happen.

edit:
There was a steam update on linux, but TF2 still needs to be updated. Knowing Valve, it'll happen later today.

That's right! Tux has got my back!

Update for Brainz and Ukick. I can log into TF2 fine with my account, but something doesn't seem to work when I try to play TF2 with either of your accounts.

It's probably not installed under our accounts. You may need to copy the TF2 files from Steam\steamapps\queueball to Steam\steamapps\ukick, for example, where the bolded bits are the actual login names.

EDIT: This also assumes top-level directory structure is the same on Ubuntu as it is in windows

Oh shoot... I may have run out of hdd space...

You know how to compress or gzip from the command line, right?

EDIT: send me a PM if you hit a roadblock, I'm deliberately staying out of Steam until I hear otherwise from you. Sorry everyone for cluttering up the thread

So apparently those folders take 1.5 gigs a pop. And I only have a 20 gig partition for linux. TF2 is ~15 gigs, 3 for the OS. Now doing the math that means that I have to delete those folders each time when I log in a new person.

Edit:
And most of the memory is those intro videos when you play a map. So they're pretty non compressible.

Edit Edit:
Ukick and Brainz can now tux it up.

Nice you get it on game load, don't have to join in a server.

Now we're talking.

And note the Gordon Freeman figure in the background.

Got Linux running for a while now, TF2 installed. Let me know if you want me to log in to get Tux. (you = all Goodjers)

I had to save this.

Who is that mysterious rocket jumping manne? We'll never know cause he died defending OUR NATION'S SACRED PITS OF GRAVEL

Question about Tux. Is it tradeable? If I were to imposition a GWJer to log an alt of mine into linux would I be able to trade it to my main account?

Not at the moment, no.
