Hi there,

Please add "User Ashe" in front of any images you intend to use on your user page. GrampaSwood (talk) 16:39, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm just practicing. In fact, i did´nt add anything but thanks for the advice.
Also I'm gonna delete that image because i think it has copyright

Building Haulings

Fair cop, the Building Hauling change is in the update history,


Because the Hauling was shut a big deal, practically architectural and even OP, it is particularly notable history (really big changes may be noted outside the update history); so, I would have also gone with the existing script as it was.


It is so notable that it could have gone in the lead of Hauling, it would be very appropriate for the lead of the Hauling section, to say "Introduced in the Engineer Update, this mechanic allows for redeployment without having to ...", which we have done many times for big new game features. ( "The Soul Gargoyle was first available during the Scream Fortress VII event ..." "[Magic spells] were introduced in Helltower and are found on several later Haunted Halloween maps."


The game went without hauling for such a short time, Buildings were probably originally intentionally introduced without Hauling just to make a Big Deal out of the update, so not really a big deal?

YMMV, but, I think it is important to state in the main body when Hauling was introduced. It is not Trivia because it is too important of an update. (This one was added by Mikado282)


Thanks im new to it, lookin for someone to teach me how to do it better. Tunahan

Thanks for the heads up!

I had some trouble for a while to actually get the preview button to work, and as you can probably tell I'm pretty new to this whole thing so I'm sorry if my edits led to unnecessary spam of any kind. I'll make sure to properly use the preview in further edits.

Also, I'm not even sure if this is the proper way to reply to your comment or if I just started a whole new message thread of some kind :/ Hope it's okay. Squishy

NP. To reply my comment you just need to go to the section (in this case, Show preview), click in the button edit along the subtitle and write your reply, with a : before the text. And also, remember to sign you replies with ~~~~ · Ashe (talk) 01:57, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

new version of File:CritHitChance


I noticed you trying to update the File:CritHitChance_es.png. I already contacted BrazilianNut about new translate of pt-br and es version, but haven't got reply yet, so you are fast! I actually have the source file and I can help update the image. I saw there is still some little issues on the y-axis name, maybe you could just fix it by yourself, or you can reply all the translated text and I can just make a new image.

Thanks! --AlexT 03:12, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, i was creating the translated image when i noticed that you asked BrazilianNut for help xd. About the image, i don't know what issues it has. For me it's all good · Ashe (talk) 04:01, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

You sandbox


It would be great if you could comment out the category in the sandbox in the future. For example your sandbox now have both Strategy and Gameplay category, and it will add your sandbox page to the category (which is bad), and also interfere translation progress stats chart.

Weapon demonstration


I learned from Wind that you are handling the uploading of weapon demonstrations recently. I have 2 demonstrations done and approved a few months ago, they are Rocket Jockey and Spin-to-Win. There are also 2 other taunt demonstrations done by other people and approved but don't have a download link. Maybe you could upload all of them to the wiki channel.

spy checking

spies can break disguise once discovered and still dead ring to make an escape, leading to a continued phase of spy checking (thereby complicating the process, as mentioned in that opener). it could be misleading to a new player to say "because disguised spies can dead ring" as it can imply that spies can not use the dead ringer if they are undisguised. in general, "Spy checking is against disguised spies" is a bit misleading as well, as the process also involves finding cloaked spies, again described in the article. not convinced a revert was appropriate. thanks Atonement (talk) 00:47, 5 November 2021 (UTC)

1. You are saying "spies can break disguise". Then it is no longer spy checking.
2. Verifying that you can use the Dead Ringer when undisguised literally takes only equipping the item and press M2, so saying "confusing for new players" is exaggerated. Also, new players would check first the Dead Ringer and Cloak articles.
3. Spies with Dead ringer can't cloak by themselves, so "involves finding cloaked spies" is incorrect in this case

Hello there. I'd like to record the third-person view reload animation for the Hitman's Heatmaker (with Focus on).

Taunt demonstrations


Demonstration videos for Mannbulance! and Homerunner's Hobby is approved but haven't been uploaded to official channel, seems like they are missing thumbnails. But it looks like there's no people doing thumbnails anymore, I learned how to use HLMV and made thumbnails for them, I have asked a experienced image maker and it looks like they are good enough to use as thumbnails. Maybe you could upload all of them to the wiki channel now.

Can you help me with a template?

Hello, Ashe.

I have just created the {{Conflicting equip region}} template, but it's only working partially; only one of the parameters is working. I saw you created {{Other uses}}, and was wondering if you could help me configure it to work as intended (and better, if possible, as I originally wanted the classthing=yes parameters to be with=x, with X being classthing instead).

Corolla Corral Demonstration

Hi there. I messaged you on IRC yesterday, however you logged off as so as I sent it so I'll just bring it up here instead. I have finished the Corolla Corral demonstration for April Fools, and I was wondering if you could upload it to the official channel and unlist it for now until April Fools. Unless you think it needs any changes, here's the download link and thumbnail download.

Hey, I did read your message. However, I wonder why does it have a 1.48 GB file size. Did you render it at 1440p or something? · Ashe (talk) 01:44, 11 March 2023 (UTC)
I rendered it at 1080p, It's just a big file size because it's over 7 minutes long. Though I don't really see why the file size is an issue, as once the video is uploaded to the channel you could just delete it from your computer.

Demonstration talk page

Please see this template I've made for the demonstration talk page, it outlines each page in a colour (the specific colours should be changed, but currently it's grey for no demonstration, green for approved, and orange for review needed). An example can be found on the talk page, where I've pasted some of the Demo's talk page. Let me know if you want to see the border thickness adjusted, what colours you think are better, etc. This should make it easier for us to notice when something is approved (maybe add an "uploaded" colour too?)

Another proposal: I believe we should start archiving topics whenever they are done and organise them by year from now on. So instead of using the current 1-65 numbering, we should create a new one named "2024", and whenever a demonstration is approved and uploaded we move it in there. For next year, we create a 2025 one, of course. Please let me know what you think.

Problems with my weapon demonstration

Hi, Ashe. If you don't know already I have reserved a demonstration for the Cleaner's Carbine. However, I have been facing an issue where if I install tr_karma_wiki, then load it, the game will completely freeze at "initializing resources" near the end of the loading process. I have already gone to GrampaSwood about this - his solutions didn't work for me. He said that going to you was worth a shot, so do you have any potential solutions?

P.S.: GrampaSwood has already given me these solutions, both of which I have tried:

  • Run the game with the -nosound launch option.
  • Make sure the file is in tf/maps.

Thanks for your time,

Please send the log of you console. It is located in the tf folder ("console.log"). Clean the file, open the map again, wait until the game crashes, copy the content of the console.log file and share it here via (you don't need an account) · Ashe (talk) 22:48, 21 April 2024 (UTC)
Actually hang on, it doesnt crash, it just looks frozen on a static image (I can still click stuff, it looks like it's stuck on the loading screen. So far, I have tried -nosound, 32 bit TF2, installing the new version of the map, and tr_target_weaponref_hdr (that didn't work at all), and some other stuff, to no avail. I'll check and see if my Mastercomfig launch options have anything to do with it. Also, no, the patch from two days ago unfortunately did not fix tr_karma.

Talk to you later,

TR_Karma_Event change

Hello! as you are aware the Weapon Demonstration discussion page has a section for all the spellbooks however the event map doesn't use the spellbook by default as there are no spells that spawn on the map, I'm asking if you would be able to edit the event version to enable spells on the map so the demonstrations can be done, as a side note I did try with the spell commands however the icon for the spells does not appear on the HUD regardless if the spellbook is equipped or not, Thank you
