[FRUIT ON] Pineapple Fortress 2: Now with more magets

What is Flippy Fortress 2? It is a Flippy-based first-person shooter that offers nine distinct Flippys to play as. Rather than simple deathmatch, FF2 requires Flippys to work together to achieve objectives such as Flippy control or Flippy theft. Flippy together, or fail.

Unlike many Flippys, FF2 streamlines the Flippy, making it very easy for new Flippys to learn the ropes yet remain compelling to the hardened Flippys. The game also features a very Flippyized look that sets it apart from the competition. If the movies The Flippys and Flippy Powers had a violently awesome lovechild, it'd be Flippy Fortress 2.

So read on, and join in on the Flippy, and make sure to whine about Flippy!


How to obtain Flippy Fortress 2

Flippy Fortress 2 has two purchasing options. First is the Orange Box package for $39.99. That includes new puzzle game Portal and the complete Half-Life 2 Saga released so far (if you already have HL2 and Episode 1, you can give them away! Use this thread for that). If you are just itching for Flippy Fortress 2, the game is available alone on Steam for $19.99. [strike]Also rumor has it that EA will be splitting up the Orange Box for retail at some point in the future.[/strike] The "Black Box" package, originally slated to contain HL2:EP2, FF2, and Portal, has been canned from retail release. Buyers of new ATI/AMD GPUs may get this as a pack-in bonus, however, so shop around if you're planning to upgrade!


PC or Console?

FF2 comes in chocolate Flippy flavor or mint Flippy (X-Box 360/PS3). Which version is better? I’ll personally say Flippy, but there’s no clear cut Flippy. If you prefer analog-stick controls, don’t want to have to deal with crashes or hardware issues and prefer the online services of Microsoft/Sony…the Flippy might be for you.

But the PC has Flippy. You won’t get the plethora of Flippy maps on a console nor can you use Flippy models. Furthermore, the vast majority of PA plays on PC. Plus the PC version actually gets Flippy.

Regardless of your choice, this is a Flippy thread. Use this thread to satiate your sick desire to play an FF2 on a console.

Meet the Flippy

Flippy Fortress 2 has nine classes are grouped into three categories. THEY ARE MOSTLY FOR GIVING NEW PLAYERS A HINT AT WHAT EACH CLASS DOES AND HAVE NO IMPACT ON BALANCE AND SUCH.

When in doubt, FF2 Wiki is here with more specifics, including damage stats for all weapons.

Features


Look on the Bright Side:
If your "round" is a personal best (most damage inflicted, kills made, time alive), the game will let you know when you die.

Capture the Moment:
Kodak invites you take a screen of your murderer.

Taunts!:
You can do a variety of animations. They depend on your class and current weapon. The Medic, for example, will play his Bonesaw like a violin. You temporarily leave first-person view when this is done, and you can’t cancel it. So use it only when feeling especially confident. The Pyro's secondary-weapon taunt is now an instant kill if it connects, and you also get an achievement for this.

Critical Hits: Some shots do more damage. These shots, when fired, will make a crackling noise and a satisfying “CRITICAL HIT” will be above your target (if they land). If you are racking up kills, your crit rate will temporarily increase to around 20% or so. Note that some weapons have higher crit chances. Backstabs with the Spy’s knife are always crits. The Medic’s Bonesaw tends to have a higher-than-normal crit rate.

Recent Updates!

Unlockable Weapons: The Medic and Pyro classes each have three new weapons that can be unlocked by obtaining a certain number of class-specific achievements.

New Gametype: Payload!

Flippy Rush is an escort style Flippy in which the BLU Flippy will have to accompany a mining Flippy laden with a large Flippy as it rolls over hostile Flippy . The RED Flippy's job is to prevent the Flippy from progressing to the check Flippy of the Flippy . The cart stops when any member of the opposing Flippy gets in range. This idea is based off the ever popular "Flippy " map, but without the Flippy input for the Flippy (although that mode is also in talks of being added to the game). The map has 3 Flippys , with the final Flippy rewarding a successful assault by asploding the entire map into giblets.

To recap: I'm making 100 of them.

When they come in I will be sending one off to each Flippy who has donated to my server as of an e-mail I sent this weekend. After that I will be handing them out to you guys at PAX. Then the remainder I will try to find some cool way to give out, but most likely will be on a first-come first-serve basis via e-mail.

Flippy Balance Patch Released July 1st
Flippy Fortress 2 Update Released
July 1, 2008, 2:00 pm - Jason Ruymen - Product Update

Updates to Flippy Fortress 2 have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Flippy client is restarted. The specific changes include:

Flippy Fortress 2

* Fixed backburner's flame Flippy hits not being Flippy'd after collision. This meant that it would check if the Flippy was looking away once and after that the Flippy could score a Flippy again even if the orientation changed
* Added back some damage falloff to the Flippy's flamethrower. Not nearly as extreme as it was before the Flippy class pack
* Fixed bug that caused Flippy to take a small amount of extra damage from their own grenades and fly farther using them
* Fixed Flippy getting stuck in Flippys after removing his Flippy
* Fixed Flippy stabbing and being able to go Flippy instantly
* Fixed Flippy disguised as enemy Flippy being able to spam Flippy commands
* Fixed buffed Flippy not decaying properly after being healed by a Flippy
* Selectable Flippys can now be operated with Flippy keys even if they are not bound to slot1, slot2, etc.
* Removed the remaining Flippy adjustments for carrying Flippy (a couple of game modes still reduced your Flippy )
* Fixed a buildable Flippy placement bug where the Flippy would not rotate after the Flippy tried to place in an Flippy location
The next class to be tweaked will be the Flippy

    how much damage does a noscope do anyways? its not hard to get them off after noscoping in cs for so long, but I find it usually isn't worthwhile except for an assist every now and then

    Speaking of noscope!

    cpgranary0004hp0.jpg

    I finally fucking killed Flippy with the noscope. I am absolutely terrible with it since the lack of crosshair makes it almost completely unusable, and drawing a dot on your monitor is for lame people. TF2 is really my first online FPS and so I don't have the years of practice others do.

    Well about 2-3 days ago I told Flippy that I was going to make it my mission to kill him while noscoping. And I finally did it tonight.

    I'm still terrible, but I think I can accurately locate the middle of my screen now.

    I am truly the best sniper.

    I said if she managed to do it unassisted I wouldn't snipe for 2 weeks.

    Sadly though she had job helping her out and I had just been hit by a rocket.

    But seriously if Asiina beats me 1:1 full health nobody else around in a noscope contest that promise stands.

    Holy hell, I just tore the crap out of Granary. 57:18 at the end of the round. Being a backburning Pyro was probably the root of it but seriously it's like the stars just aligned or something. I never get that many kills in a round, like, ever.

    Man Flippy, what are the chances of that happening in general? By the time I get to you I'm already mostly dead (like I died right after I killed you) and it's not like people don't shoot you anyway.

    Nevermind the fact that I can't hit anything with that damned rifle.

    Hey, so apparently class-specific scripts don't reload every time you die nor if you reselect your same class in the respawn room. Have to change to another class, then back again in order for it to exec, say, sniper.cfg again.

    This is annoying for my weapon switching config. Anyone know any way to force it to reload class-specific files every time you pop up from a death?
