Unused voice commands

This is something I'm interested in. Where did you find evidence that those laugh files were part of a cut voice command menu? Please don't take this as a challenge to your work, it's just that I had never known there was a cut one. -- En Ex (talk) 20:22, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

As an example here's the Scout:
  • Response PlayerTauntsScout
  • {
  • scene "scenes/Player/Scout/low/1298.vcd"
  • scene "scenes/Player/Scout/low/436.vcd"
  • scene "scenes/Player/Scout/low/437.vcd"
  • scene "scenes/Player/Scout/low/1299.vcd"
  • scene "scenes/Player/Scout/low/1300.vcd"
  • scene "scenes/Player/Scout/low/1301.vcd"
  • }
  • Rule PlayerTauntsScout
  • {
  • criteria ConceptPlayerTaunts IsScout
  • Response PlayerTauntsScout
  • }

which is part of the

  • //--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • // Speech Menu 3
  • //--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

of tf\scripts\talker\Scout.txt -- "ConceptPlayerTaunts" is referenced in tf\scripts\talker\response_rules.txt as:

  • criterion "ConceptPlayerActivateCharge" "Concept" "TLK_PLAYER_ACTIVATECHARGE" required
  • criterion "ConceptPlayerChargeReady" "Concept" "TLK_PLAYER_CHARGEREADY" required
  • criterion "ConceptPlayerTaunts" "Concept" "TLK_PLAYER_TAUNTS" required
  • criterion "ConceptPlayerBattleCry" "Concept" "TLK_PLAYER_BATTLECRY" required
  • criterion "ConceptPlayerCheers" "Concept" "TLK_PLAYER_CHEERS" required

Notice how it's sitting in amongst the voice menu sections in both files? They aren't part of the standard taunt set, and aren't referenced anywhere else. Those voice lines aren't used any where else wither. They aren't in voicecommands.txt, which led me to believe they were never implemented. It's all there ready to be implemented, like the unused response lines for any class. i-ghost 20:32, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Very cool. And good find, I'll add. Thanks for the info. Lemme know if you find anything else like this in the game files. -- En Ex (talk) 21:10, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Heavy voice files

Hey. I've reuploaded all "Heavy_" files from the game cache, updated all pages to use the new filenames and deleted the annoying old files. You can find a list of all good Heavy audio files to work with at User:Seb26/heavyaudio/gud. The only files I didn't manage to get were these taunt files (they are not present in \tf\sound\vo). Tomorrow I may try redownloading them from the wiki (the files remain on the server after deletion) as my connection at the moment is so frustratingly slow. If you can manage to get ahold of the files before then (as I have no clue where they are in the GCF) then feel free to upload them. Taunt files 01, 04 and 08 exist, however.

  1. File:Heavy_taunts02.wav
  2. File:Heavy_taunts06.wav
  3. File:Heavy_taunts07.wav
  4. File:Heavy_taunts10.wav

File Licensing

Thanks for the heads up - do I need to re-upload the audio file to attach a license to it? I can't seem to find an option to edit the description. Cooper Kid 12:46, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

You can attach a license by editing the 'page' of the file as you would edit any other page, then type out one of the licenses. So for instance if you wanted to add the Creative Commons (self) license, you would add {{CC|by-3.0|self}} underneath where you previously wrote "Audio pronunciation of ClaidheamhMòr." If you have any trouble with this, don't hesitate to ask. i-ghost 12:51, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Ubered Skewer


I've had that happen a number of times. I'm not sure if it's map related (have all been on ctf_2fort) but I'll try to get more specifics on it and record a demo/capture video next time.

-Nino "Khamir"

Welcome to the Team Fortress Wiki. No need to apologise; just make sure to test any findings on an unmodded/local server before posting it to the Wiki. I can confirm that the Skewer taunt only stuns the UberCharged target; it doesn't kill them. Oh, and make sure to sign talk page posts with ~~~~, it adds your name and the time of the post automatically. If you're unsure of anything, feel free to ask on the relevant talk page. :) i-ghost 12:43, 23 June 2011 (PDT)

Community Phongboost

I noticed your recent edit to Item Quality regarding the Phongboost, and was curious as to the specifics of "Certain other", are there additional items with the boost now? Or are you just referring to the Sticky Jumper? I'm curious to see what is included if the former is true. ~ Ath (talk) 09:26, 16 September 2011 (PDT)

Out of the c_ models, the Cow Mangler, Righteous Bison, Sticky Jumper, Disciplinary Action, Loch n' Load, Jag, Iron Curtain, Brass Beast, Frying Pan (wat?), Direct Hit and the Original are all correctly rigged for the extra community phong boost. One or two others (Soda Popper, Quick Fix, Tomislav, Powerjack) are sort of halfway rigged so I'm not sure if they'll work correctly. i-ghost 10:06, 16 September 2011 (PDT)
Interesting, this merits further investigation. Thanks. ~ Ath (talk) 10:17, 16 September 2011 (PDT)

Your new response rules

Thank you for implementing/fixing these. It's always my favourite part of any update. I took care of most of the wiki pages and I noticed that heavy's old thanks command has no scene and sound file, yet it's linked in heavy's response rules. I suppose Valve failed again in adding them? Oh also before I forget Ullapool Caber's taunt doesn't work with HWM models at all :( Blackbird 02:03, 14 October 2011 (PDT)

You're welcome; and thanks very much for looking after those pages by keeping them accurate. Regarding the Heavy's fourth thanks scene and sound file, I submitted those to Valve however they told me that they're happy with what's in-game at the moment; Valve has left them linked in the talker files since I submitted my first wave of response rules. i-ghost 03:04, 14 October 2011 (PDT)
I've ran into another weird thing while browsing the game's files and that is Heavy's yell lines. They do not appear to be used unless there is some other "magic" to play them and only one present on wiki is Heavy_yell14. They appear to be original lines with more yelling like Sniper's whisper lines are whispered old lines. Care to enlighten me please? Blackbird 02:09, 19 October 2011 (PDT)
Those lines appear to be early 'draft' versions of his existing lines, most likely used in the early stages of development for character testing. If you listen closely, you'll hear that the voice is slightly different compared to the lines we have in-game (which are separate files in the GCF). They do not have any associated .vcd files, so I could not implement them. i-ghost 11:52, 19 October 2011 (PDT)

HL1 Maps that work in TFC

So how do you propose we do this "Custom Map" documenting? 404: User Not Found (talk) 05:48, 21 October 2011 (PDT)

Actually, I have an idea involving creation a custom navbox for them. I have a doctor's appointment to get to, but I'll get working on the navbox when I get back. Just make sure none of the map articles get removed :P 404: User Not Found (talk) 05:50, 21 October 2011 (PDT)
It would be best to follow the same format we have for TF2 custom maps, example. i-ghost 07:31, 21 October 2011 (PDT)
There! I created a custom navbox for the maps, labelling them as "Custom maps". I had to undo all of SiPlus's rampant deletion tagging and revert his edit to the List of maps (Classic) page to re-add the Deathmatch section, which I renamed to "Custom Maps". Everything is all nice and squared up now. Just gotta re-categorize the pages and we're good to go! 404: User Not Found (talk) 02:53, 25 October 2011 (PDT)

I am in need of your assistance.

I am in need of your assistance in closing the HL1 maps discussion once and for all. I've taken your suggestion of relabelling the map articles as custom content/custom maps in an effort to quell the flames that SiPlus seems to be fanning, yet he has insisted that "we need a moderator". Do the community a huge favour and finally put an end to this silly discussion so we can all move on with our lives. 404: User Not Found (talk) 00:35, 26 October 2011 (PDT)

Editing a archive.

Whoops, I wasn't aware it was a archived page, I'll pay more attention next time. On another note, do you happen to have any idea where I might ask that question, instead? Killicon machina penetratehs.png Cerbrus 02:52, 1 November 2011 (PDT)

It always bothered me that the Winger had no hammer as compared to the Pistol. Then I remembered that some pistols have an internal firing pin, such as the Glock, which do not have an external hammer.

This was further confirmed by perusing the original developmental thread which showed that while the original design included a hammer, it was removed mainly for looks with the plausible explanation of an internal firing pin.

In the end, I just wanted to say that the weapons of TF2 have a stylized look, but still need to maintain a sense of plausibility.

Perhaps, the hammerless state should be noted in a fashion not unlike the 7 vs. 6 chamber debate and differing reloading aspect on the L'Etranger page?

P.S. You were right about the the Winger not being based on any real weapon

User Upgrade Signature.png 14:55, 2 May 2012 (PDT)

Well researched. Explaining the weapon's lack of hammer might make for some interesting trivia or could be merged with an existing trivia piece; just remember to link to the exact post stating why it was designed that way. I can't say for sure that it won't be removed by another editor if they disagree with its notability. i-ghost 15:06, 2 May 2012 (PDT)

RE: Item infobox

I believe most, if not all usages of {{item infobox}} in user pages, are for describing the users themselves as if they were an item. The {{user infobox}} template, on the other hand, is ideal for describing users. When placed in a subpage, however, this template is used (most times) to refer to an item, either for sandboxing or fun purposes. Plus, the item infobox has little support to user pages, which often results in errors. Unless we were to make this template more user page-friendly or create a new one just for this purpose instead (user item infobox, maybe) or even implement these features in the user infobox (<-- my favorite idea, I can even make a draft by tomorrow), this seems like the best way to deal with this right now.  –  Epic Eric (T | C) 15:15, 26 November 2012 (PST)

And was user-page {{Item infobox}} usage ever such a huge issue that it demanded cruft added to the template in the form of an automated message? Class infobox mis-use I can understand, as users see the infobox and just copy-paste, but this isn't an issue. Instead of trying to police user pages, why don't you try and educate mis-users of templates instead of presenting them with intimidating warnings? You know, like a moderator should be doing. i-ghost 16:03, 26 November 2012 (PST)
I have been doing that for quite some time now. I created these automated messages to make users aware of a better template for talking about themselves instead of taking a broken template which does not only creates errors, but also makes their pages a mess. This was all supposed to be an easier way to solve this problem, a time-saver. By clicking the link given, I expected that users would be able to figure out a better solution for their user pages. Also, I'll create that draft anyway later today.
About your other point: I was one of the very few, if not the only moderator to go ahead and manually go through a list of all uses of these main space infoboxes to find transclusions in user pages, decide whether or not to replace it depending on the case, manually recreate the template according to what the user placed in the infoboxes and place a message about it in their talk pages. And by that I don't mean once or twice, but at least six times (I just went through my contribs and counted it), probably 100~200 users. I'm not trying to intimidate them, I'm offering them a better solution, one that will make everyone happy (their pages won't be broken [not only on the technical side, but also the esthetic one], I could spend my afternoons on something else instead, the item infobox page won't be misused, the rest of the staff wouldn't have to do this job as well). But what makes me really mad is when you say that I am "not acting like a moderator". Seriously? I am doing all that is to my reach, giving 110% out of myself for the Wiki and you just tell me to do MORE, even if it may not be the best solution?! Like I said, I'm making them choose an alternative instead. An alternative that won't automatically send them an email (I have this feeling that people don't like it when they are gone from the Wiki for some months and then receive an email about someone posting on their talk page), that they can see and switch to the user infobox format with ease (which most of them aren't aware of until they see that link) and right now I'm complementing that message with a link to my talk page for any complaints. There probably won't be any problems with inactive users, since their pages won't be seen by anyone as they haven't been editing for some time and they won't need to edit it at all - if, however, they ever need assistance, they are free to do so on my talk page.  –  Epic Eric (T | C) 08:15, 27 November 2012 (PST)
I'll ask again: Why does the item info box need this message if the problem predominately lies with mis-use of the class info box? Where are you going to draw the line between what receives this notice and what doesn't? There's absolutely nothing wrong with users receiving e-mail notifications (what's wrong with more editing?), so why are you spinning it into an issue? And yes, you're overstepping your mark by systematically editing user pages without consent. On a lighter note, please keep discussions on the page that they originated from (no sense moving this now). i-ghost 15:02, 27 November 2012 (PST)
Hmmm, now that I think of it, that was somewhat inconsiderate of me. So yeah, I've removed that item infobox error. Anyway, I'll still work on something to counter this template misuse and make users happy. Also, sorry if I seemed a little arrogant before.  –  Epic Eric (T | C) 04:14, 5 December 2012 (PST)

How to view golden botkiller weapons in HLMV

Hi, from some research around the web i found out that, you need to edit the registry files to let the golden models show up properly.

As this description from this image Golden Botkiller Wrench states.

Please help me on to the next step. SuperNova123 02:46, 7 December 2012 (PST)

Almost a month have passed and still no comment about my question. SuperNova123 09:30, 23 December 2012 (PST)

I don't remember doing anything special to take those images. Can you show me what happens when you try to take the images? i-ghost 09:41, 23 December 2012 (PST)
Well, the silver and diamond models are avaialable, but golden/blood/carbonado seems hidden. - are you sure you didn't do anything in the registry to let them show up, as of now the golden model is not in the MVM_Loot folder that contains these weapon attachments. SuperNova123 09:52, 23 December 2012 (PST)
According to entry 804 here the Gold Botkiller Wrench is an attachment on the regular v_model wrench using skins 2 and 3 (which are skins 3 and 4 in HLMV as the schema is zero-indexed). In order for the gold skin to be used by default, you need to extract fob_heavy_gold.vmt from materials\models\player\items\mvm_loot\all_class into the same directory in your TF2 installation (create the directory structure if it does not exist). After it's extracted, rename it to fob_heavy.vmt. Load up model\weapons\v_models\v_wrench_engineer.mdl and attach models\player\items\mvm_loot\engineer\fob_h_wrench_v.mdl using the File -> Load Weapon... option in HLMV. i-ghost 10:16, 23 December 2012 (PST)

Thanks, but at first it seems somewhat complicated, i have GCFScape installed but how do i create/overwrite directories. SuperNova123 10:41, 23 December 2012 (PST)

Like you sayd above, golden models are available if i only load one items at a time, but if i for example first load the wrench then add the fob_e_wrench_v.mdl the 4 models get down to 2. SuperNova123 11:54, 23 December 2012 (PST)

Solved, i found out that i have to first load the MVM_Item then add the weapon, just reverse the normal procedure. SuperNova123 11:56, 23 December 2012 (PST)

Thanks! Will have a go today and let you know how it goes :) -- CoreDude98 (talk) 14:20, 13 November 2014 (PST)
Ok, so the compiling has worked, but it won't load the map.. Do I need to be online? It says something about internet servers and CD Key Validation.. Might have a go later when I get home from school and I'll let you if it's fixed :) -- CoreDude98 (talk) 20:03, 13 November 2014 (PST)
Any specific messages in the console? Maps should load locally regardless of your connection to Steam. i-ghost (talk) 11:57, 30 November 2014 (PST)
I'll have another go now and paste anything into pastebin :) -- CoreDude98 (talk) 00:06, 1 December 2014 (PST)
Ok So I updated my game, and went online to try it again, and it worked! What position should I be in to take the photo and to what dimensions should I then crop the picture? :) Thanks! -- CoreDude98 (talk) 18:44, 1 December 2014 (PST)

Need help to know how to sent message to moderators ect.

i want to send a message to moderator about the sorry of what i put about an idea on discussion about unusual The preceding unsigned comment was added by Snake345 (talk) • (contribs) Talk page stalker

You don't have to send a message to say sorry. If you know what you did was wrong, well then simple don't do it again. That's all to it. Ashes (talk) 17:09, 27 November 2014 (PST)

Custom .vmt files

I've seen you make a few custom textures for the 3d models project (Grenade, Enthusiast's Timepiece), and I had a couple of questions:

Could you help me with the Quackenbirdt (v_hm_watch) retexture? I can't figure out where the black circle that is the watch face actually is.
Do you know how to fix the Flare (w_models/flare) texture?

Additionally, I was having some trouble getting a few of your custom models to recompile, since I'm using crowbar. Looking at the source, mdldecompiler seems to have added direct references to your path architecture. Could I get you to compile these for me? The ones I've found are:
Broken Bottle, Buffalo Steak Sandvich, Dead Ringer, Enthusiast's Timepiece, Fishcake, Fists, Knife, Revolver, Sandvich, Shotgun, Syringe Gun, Vita-Saw, and Ubersaw.

That being said, if you have any models which are currently listed as 'dead link', I'd appreciate it if you could provide a compiled model of them.

Here's the vtf I made for the Hitman watch back when I made the page image.
What's the issue you're having with the flare model? I can get it working fine as seen here.
I also provided a compiled version of the models in the source archive downloads, so you should be able to just load those up into hlmv. Simply changing the $cd line to wherever you're sourcing the smds will let you compile them in any case. I've just tested this with Crowbar. Also all the models I ever did would be here. Hope that helped. i-ghost (talk) 10:24, 3 January 2015 (PST)

I messed up, covering my rear.

I forgot my username and made this account, then remembered that I made a userbox. I can't remember the last time I was saved by that thing. anyways, is it alright if I make this account's page a redirect to My old one? Thanks lad.Starhorder (talk) 10:43, 10 November 2015 (PST)

Confirming it's legit. Star=3Horder 10:45, 10 November 2015 (PST)

Signature/Username Help!

I've noticed that some people on this wiki have their usernames or signatures in a TF2 font. I was wondering, is that like an administrator thing only, or can anyone do it and how? Please respond as soon as possible. Thanks for the help. Scunt Main (talk) 10:19, 2 March 2017 (PST)

You're free to choose your signature yourself in the settings.— shots fired by: Nikno {Talk | Contribs} 10:21, 2 March 2017 (PST)

I would like to make a new wikipedia page

Dear I-ghost,

I am kitloin, a person who would like (to as corny as this sounds) "Be the change i would like to see in the world." I would like to make a wikipedia article on the crate depression, but whenever i try to make it, it says its "Harmful" And wont let me. It told me to contact an administrator to upload it, so i will just leave the article here

  • Crate depression
An example of an unusual that could have been uncrated during the Crate Depression (top) Example of a price drop during the Crate Depression (bottom) 44233934fa47b225751d30f04be68c87b3ee6749_full.jpg

The Crate Depression, also known as "the Great Market Crash of 2019," or simply just "Market Crash" was an event that took place on the 26th of July, wherein a few individuals noticed that certain Mann Co. Supply Crates, namely crate series #1-#17, #61, #82, and #85, Dropped guaranteed unusuals. Thus causing a market crash. The cause of this event is unknown, although it is speculated that the Dancing Doe being implemented into the game could have been a cause. Youtubers such as Delfy and MrPaladin made videos to spread awareness on the issue. On Team Fortress's official twitter account, updates on the situation are provided, yet none state the cause of the crash. One of the large issues concerning the crash were the bugged unusuals, If valve rolled them back, the company would be in hot water with the EU's consumer protection act.

The Unusuals in question were mainly series #1 unusual effects, Which unfortunately are the most saught after effects. Series #3 unusuals aren't as saught after, but they are still unusual. Extreme price drops effected the market with some unusuals that were previously worth around 50 dollars dropping to a mere four dollars. Valve had to do something so first valve implemented a trade ban on the bugged items, currently this trade ban still stands. Then Valve shut down the crating and the community market so they could think about what to do over the weekend.

  • Timeline
    • Unknown time, July 26th, 2019. The first player uncrates an unusual. This marks the start of the crash
    • 12:14:30 (UTC) July 26th, 2019. The first video about the Crate Depression is uploaded by a youtuber named Rowerty, It depicts a manga-style character crying as low unusual prices scroll up on the screen.
    • 13:44:38 (UTC) July 26th, 2019. Delfy uploads his video, in which he uncrates unusuals and watches peoples reactions in chat
    • 00:59:18 (UTC) July 27th, 2019 Youtuber StaryKrowuploads their video Which as of August seventh, 2019 has 400k views, making it the most popular video on the crate depression.

Seeing as I-ghost hasn't been active since the 5th of February this year, I'll answer this for now (I-ghost: feel free to delete this if you decide to answer and it isnt the same as my answer). But I personally think this proposed page is a bit too small to be its own page. It also mostly mentions "[youtuber] makes a video" which is completely irrelevant to the event itself. All that should really be said about the event is something like
"A bug was introduced in the July 25, 2019 Patch that caused crates #1-18, #82, and #85 to have a 100% drop chance for Unusual hats. The [TF Twitter tweet link official Team Fortress Twitter] account posted a tweet commenting on the situation."
The rest of the info, in my opinion, is quite unnecessary. The example of an uncratable hat is also completely unnecessary

And also, the writing style itself is not following our Help:Style guide. Please read the style guide before attempting to do anything. I also changed format a bit so it can be edit from the small section. And also you shouldn't put the entire thing in other's talk page and instead create the sandbox page under your username like User:Kitloin/sandbox.
