I accidentally added 1 without a license, but didn't know how to add it, although these images were needed as for the demoman as a lot of missing images, but don't worry I like criticism.


Well, thanks for correcting my mistake, I'll try not to re-do that same mistake. Marwan "Marble" Diab 05:46, 26 October 2011 (PDT)

New Vegas Userbox

Hi there. I've moved your {{FalloutNewVegas}} userbox to {{User FalloutNewVegas}} as per the titling guidelines and marked the old one for deletion. Thought I ought to let you know so you can add it back to your profile page! » Cooper Kid (blether) • (contreebs) 15:26, 12 October 2011 (PDT)


Don't feel bad about giving the wikichievement, man. You did what you felt was right at the time, and there's no reason to feel like you screwed up. 404: User Not Found (talk) 02:15, 14 October 2011 (PDT)

Dem painted hats

Y U LEAVE IRC, anyway, I don't know this for certain but from messing around with tf2's files as I've had to from time to time to achieve various things, I'm fairly sure that the Alpha channel of the vtf determines which sections are paintable and which are not (white for paintable, black for not). Of course, due to this, you can't use "$basemapalphaphongmask" "1" in the vmt as your alpha channel won't be used for that anymore and will have to make a separate phong mask. Dis is my understanding anyway. -Mr. Magoolachub 05:10, 29 November 2011 (PST)

Hi Lexar, just saw your message on IRC. The TF2 Wiki was never vulnerable to Heartbleed as our various servers do not accept SSL connections. It is entirely possible that the version of OpenSSL used on the servers was (and possibly still is, if Valve haven't upgraded) vulnerable, but this presently does not pose a risk at present as there are no services running on the servers that use SSL. Regardless, I will make a note to check the OpenSSL version installed and if necessary put in a request for Valve to upgrade it - just so we're prepared if we ever enable SSL in the future. -RJ 08:37, 11 June 2014 (PDT)

Minigun recompile

Was wondering how this was coming along. Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 20:39, 31 July 2014 (PDT)

Recompile requests

I have a list of models on my Projects page which need complex recompiling. Some of them have model links, I can dredge up any more if you need them. I don't need these recompiles that soon, but before christmas (break) would be nice. Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 13:13, 12 November 2014 (PST)

Probably one last thing on the Decorated table.

I don't know if you're done with the table, but it looks pretty good. One thing I was thinking earlier is how small the weapon, so I did a little test by enlarging 100px to 200px, but the weapon is not well positioned. I think you need to change that on your .js. Here's how I think it will look after editing (image edited): [1]. A larger image shows better the details of each condition.

Thanks a lot for helping me with the Decorated weapons table, as well for everyone who's going to see the table whenever it gets into the page.

Also, few more things about the Decorated stuff. One. I'm done with Teufort Collection images, but I haven't implemented them yet. The other two Collections, Concealed Killer and Powerhouse started to appear now on the Market, soon all the weapons will (hopefully) be there. Now, to something more important. There are several Decorated weapons with team color, but the Market only shows the Red version. However, market icons for BLU variations exist, since TF2 loads the Market Icon when inspecting someone, and they show correctly team-colored (EX: Citizen Pain Minigun is replaced by corns in the BLU version, instead of the Happy Lemons). I think that the only way to get them is e-mailing Valve asking for them, maybe someone who has a good contact already could help with that. An edit of your table would also be required, something for switch teams. It could work appear in the right side of the panel for switch to RED or BLU, and when switching, the image/wear is kept that the user selected before choosing teams, so the user can compare them (I don't know if you get that part, basically when switching teams, the image doesn't go back to "Factory New", which is the default one, instead, it still keep the Wear that the user chosen before selecting the teams).

I've seen in the mat_texture_list the information about the backpack icon on a BLU Team Decorated Scattergun:
256 Kb    256x256    RGBA8888
I don't know if these will be useful, but it seems that those numbers (item51036 and id3905457623) has to do with the Market, since it ends with w144_h96, exactly how it ends an image of the Market: [2]. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 17:30, 4 July 2015 (PDT)
Well, almost everything done. Few images aren't there because I haven't seen any listings of said items on the Market. We also still need the BLU icons and the function to switch between teams. Probably the table can be already on the page, and put a stub warning on the top (since the blu images aren't there yet). User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 19:29, 4 July 2015 (PDT)
Everything is done. Every variation and wear are uploaded now. I've also put the "Team Colored Decorated Weapon" on the items that are team-colored. Only thing that is missing are the BLU variations. Just pointing that it should be good enough to go live now. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 15:19, 5 July 2015 (PDT)

CSS question

Hello Lexar! I want to use a CSS file for my user page just like you do. But it seems not to work. Do I have to activate it somehow? I couldn't find a related option. If you could help me, that would be nice. Killstreak Icon.png Hagbard Celine (T · C) 14:39, 9 July 2015 (PDT)

.js approval

Can you confirm with Wind about the use of .js on the Decorated table? People are constantly uploading/making edits to the Decorated pages about the weapons and images, and they're being reverted, with the reason that the table is on the works. It has been like a week or so that the table was finished, minor the BLU images (I got no response from Valve about the BLU images yet). Thanks.

Team-Colored Switcher to the Decorated Template

Hi Lexar, can you implement a Team-colored Switcher to the Decorate Template soon? I found a way to load them on HLMV, so I'll be doing Team-Colored pictures of each weapon and grades, as well without anti-aliasing. I also would like that the template didn't load the prefix "Backpack_", as I'll be using non-backpack images now. And, I don't know if you're able to edit the Infobox 3D Images list, because I was thinking that it should be tweaked for the Decorated Weapons, I was thinking something like this (mock-up), which the User can click on the arrow to show the Grades and Team-Colors of the weapon. I also have plans for a mini-table that shows the available skins for that weapon, but I don't think it's going to be needed for now, as the 3D images will be in the works). Thanks.

Check Talk:Decorated page for the discussion. I updated, since I think the decorated weapons should only stick to 2D images. There would be too much clutter on the 3D Images panel.
