    Because I can't get ding-a-lings to work, the hit indicator with the blut still gives it a big advantage

    if you are using a custom dingalong

    put "play /soundnamegoeshere.wav"

    into your autoexec

    and only connect to servers from the ingame server browser

    if you connect with the steam server browser or from "join game" on a friend, your autoexec won't get executed before you connect, making it so your custom hitsound won't get past the sv_pure settings of the server

    therefore, just load up the game and then connect to the server of your picking

    That explains a lot.

    those instructions are assuming you have the tf_dingaling_wav_override setting set correctly and such

    It may explain *why* it doesn't work, but that is stupid/obviously a bug, and really should be fixed.

    It's a sv_pure thing.

    TF2 won't cache a sound until something requests to play it, and a custom dingaling is considered a mod.. so TF2 won't load it if you're on a server with strict settings.

    But if you play the sound prior to joining a server, it gets cached in memory, and everything is okay.

    yeah to fix it would require a reworking of the sv_pure system, and that could lead to some large loopholes if not tested very thoroughly

    this fix isn't that hard to remember to do once you know it, so i'm not really sweating it

    there is no reason to use the bonesaw.

    melee combat is such that a marginally faster swing speed is mostly meaningless.

    Also, even if the Bonesaw is the better melee option, anyone trying to fight a gun with a melee weapon is pretty much screwed. So saying "it's the better weapon of two options of last resort" isn't exactly saying much.

    Yeah, that's exactly it. The way melee combat works in source you weave in and out trying to be in melee range at the "hit" phase of your strike. It's not about DPS, it's about timing.

    Looks good, but might look more tf2-ish if you could find any older DrPepper logo to use.

    I like how consistent the style is, even using a new health cabinet, cart, and "do not enter" logo.

    ooh i didn't notice the do not enter logo

    also i like how a good amount of the maps that we played that crazy night on the honc used those air elevators

    i like those elevators

    i unfortunately didn't get one successful ubersaw tauntkill when the offensive team was pouring through it though
