Team Fortress 2, Day of Defeat Updates Released

By Maarten Goldstein, Jan 28, 2009 6:03pm PST As promised, a new Team Fortress 2 update is now available through Steam.

The update offers a number of bug and exploit fixes. Among the changes: fixed damage dealing for the Heavy's Natascha unlockable, updated AutoTeam balancing logic, and players no longer getting stuck in the "prepare to respawn..." countdown. Some of the exploit fixes also apply to Day of Defeat: Source.

Full change notes follow

Team Fortress 2

  • Added percentage to UberCharge HUD panel for the Medic
  • Added upgrade progress and levels to Engineer HUD panel for all buildings
  • Added mp_tournament_allow_non_admin_restart server ConVar to allow server admin to toggle whether non-admin players can issue the mp_tournament_restart ConCommand on the server. Default is 1 (current behavior)
  • Added flag to the gamerules entity so map authors can override the HUD type being used. Allows map authors to force CTF or CP HUD to be used if they mix CTF/CP entities in the map
  • Added check in CTF HUD to make sure it doesn't point at disabled capture zones when the player is carrying the flag. Allows map authors to have more than one capture zone for each team in the map

  • Fixed Pyro model not animating in the class menu
  • Fixed players getting stuck in the "prepare to respawn..." countdown loop
