I'm not sure I should be giving away my tricks, but... Not all on hit/on kill effects are replicated by the Dead Ringer. Some things that could give it away are: No hit sound is played. It's unclear if this is intended or if this is a bug. Spies covered in jarate or mad milk remain visible as an outline. Technically, this applies to Spies who were ...

One thing you can try (with sv_cheats on) is the console command r_drawclipbrushes 2. This should draw all clipping brushes as solid objects, letting you see most invisible walls/floors/ceilings/etc. Set it back to 0 to turn it off.

The key to taking these down is teamwork (although admittedly there is little of that on TF2 nowadays). The best way to do it by far is a combination of spy, soldier and demoman. Step 1: The spy disguises and enters the teleporter. Step 2: The spy saps the engineer's stuff. Step 3: (This should happen as soon as the spy exits the teleporter). The soldier ...

Take a look on this table in the row "unreplicated mechanics" that shows effects that don't apply as they would normally do. Besides this, there are some classical signs the spy is still alive: Coating effects like Mad Milk and Jarate are visible as well as waterdrops. Watch out for vanishing ammunition packs (that are restoring the Spy's cloak time) and ...

Demos can be recorded via the record [filename] and stop commands (where [filename] is the real filename without extension, such as record mydemo). I believe they are saved in the root TF2 directory although I'm not at a computer with TF2 on it to check. On Windows, this defaults to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\. The ...

There is no way to record TF2 replays on servers with that disabled. However, you can still use a program like Fraps to capture your game footage for you. This means you have to have it turned on all the time however, so it's not an ideal solution.

No. The only time you'll trigger Wheatley's voice lines when you switch to another weapon are: Sapper is attached to a building initially Sapper is in the middle of sapping a building Sapper has destroyed a building If you really, really, really want him to continue talking, all you need to do is bind Previous Weapon and Next Weapon to your mouse wheel ...

To quote directly off the wiki: ...the player is able to perform a three-part combo attack on enemies. Should an enemy be hit three times in succession, the third strike (a downward motion with a clenched fist) will become an automatic critical hit. This does not need to be performed on a single enemy, but the attack key cannot be released during the ...

When you go to "restore" an item, it gives you a list of all things that can be restored/removed. To make it Pro Killstreak, all you have to do it select remove Specailized Killstreak and avoid the button to reset the Strange counter. Then, you just apply the Pro KS kit normaly. As long as you do not trade the item or select the button that resets the ...

You have to click on Friends button and select Offline. It will show you as offline in friends list, but you will still be online on steam. You won't be able to see your friend list, but you can still play with them if you join through other means (web profile or game browser within the game).

According to my brother who is almost at the magical 10.000 hours required for mastery in TF2, the distance between the center of the teleporter and the center of the character play an important role. This means if one is crouching, he will have better chances. He also noted that taunting might help too. Disclaimer: These are not my observations and may ...

The only reason you wouldn't get the item is if you already received a haunted metal scrap from that achievement, then used Steam Achievement Manager and delock that achievement for yourself. Since all achievement items are only given once to a player, trying to get an achievement again will not grant you additional haunted metal scrap.

Normally, no. If you want to make replays, you have to go on a server which supports replays. In the main menu, there is a server tab, there you can manually choose which server to go on as well as the information for if it supports replays. Avoid Valve servers as those never support replays. You can also check the 'Supports Replays' box to make it easier to ...

The solution I now have deployed is having the server start to an unused map (cp_cloak) and have the map config file (cp_cloak.cfg) do a changelevel to the server's primary map. This satisfies the Map change required complaint.
