Moving launch options to its own article

I feel like the launch options section doesn't fit this article. We should move it to the current OtherWikis Launch options article. · Ashe (talk) 03:44, 31 January 2024 (UTC)

I would prefer a different page that also contains info about the beta branches. Maybe something like "Steam properties"?

Pictogram minus.png Disagree. The beta branches are not really important, unlike the launch options. There exist only for demo compatibility, so imo they are not relevant · Ashe (talk) 05:57, 1 February 2024 (UTC)
I think having at least some info about it somewhere would be good. I don't think a separate page is necessary, so a combined page would be best. Seeing as so far there has also been a VScript branch and a Linux 64-bit branch, it's useful to have info about these because there aren't that many other places for it.

If launch options are on their own page, beta branches belong on that page since it's essentially a launch option (an optional branch you set prior to launch). These appear to not be noted anywhere else on the wiki, it's something related to tf2, why would we not include it? Especially since there is a permanent use-case for them with demo compatibility. Your point of them not being relevant would have been more compelling prior to these branches since that feature was basically untouched for like 8 years. I don't think they need to be on a specially named page and can just sit as a section on the launch options article. Jh34ghu43gu (talk) 12:36, 5 February 2024 (UTC)

""disguise 8 3" will not undisguise a RED Spy" is incorrect.

I made a video proof that the command does undisguise a RED Spy. Let me know if I need more proofs or if it is an incorrect information.

Seems to be outdated then, feel free to remove.

Moving launch options down

The launch options appear suddenly while explaining alias and bind, so it is awkward and does not look good. I want to move it down. were I a reader, I would be a little skeptical if launch options popped up while explain alias and bind. Howtoplaytf2happy (talk) 10:16, 5 February 2024 (UTC)


Separately from the above, I want to write about folder overrides. "autoexec.cfg" and "class.cfg" must be in overrides to run, but tf2wiki is missing that information. It's not that big of a bite, but it's essential and I think it'll confuse people who don't know they need it. Howtoplaytf2happy (talk) 10:21, 5 February 2024 (UTC)

That's only if you're using mastercomfig, if you don't use it they don't need that folder.
