All I got from my free crate was the candy cane. :sad:

 

 

Still want a Texan Ten Gallon and Troublemaker's cap...anyone got one?

Bought it finally :thumbup:

 

I played for the weekend free trial a while back and loved it, finally got it today with a Discover gift card present. Now I know this sounds obvious, but.. what are the differences between TF2 and TF2 beta? Does anything transfer between the two?

Thanks to Uno for the awsome sig <3

TF2 Beta is just Valve's testing grounds for upcoming stuff. To have the most accurate, well-tested updates, they give us, the players, a chance to test the new stuff before release. This increases the number of tests fourfold. Or that their testers are lazy. Either one.

 

TF2 = Real game

 

TF2 Beta = Not real game

TF2 Beta is essentially Vanilla with no unlocks, no hats, and no (lasting) drops. People play it because they don't like how TF2 is becoming an MMORPG with the way people focus on hats.

 

They refresh it every so often, removing any hats/drops, and you start out with all the weapons. They also pre-test random stuff in it, like the recent Natascha downgrade, and the upcoming Scout shortstop nerf.

 

I woudln't encourage playing it unless you're interested in trying out a weapon you don't have and can't be bothered to get. The main reason is that there are no hats. TF2 without hats is like life without God. Why even bother?

I built my i7 computer and played some TF2 on it.

 

I was amazed. It was so fast and fluid and smooth! The graphics were great, and I actually was playing with good framerate!

 

With my new PC, I can play TF2 at maxed settings (16x AA) at 80 FPS.

 

Let's just say I'll be playing TF2 more often...

It's a Gigabyte P55 with USB 3.0.

 

I believe it was around $130.

I'm trying to learn how to play Spy correctly, sorta getting the hang of it, I watched omfgninja's Spy guide.

 

I know how to do leaping stabs and such, but getting engies/sentries is still pretty hard for me. It's difficult finding the right time to sap the sentry (unless a dumb engy leaves it alone).

Yeah, engie's and their sentries are tough even for experienced spies. It's a bit of a game of luck; if they're aren't many enemies around there and when the engie leaves to get more metal or whatever the reason.

Would sapping it while the sentry and engineer are under fire be a good idea? Say, have demomen or soldiers attacking at the same time.

One thing I hate when Spying is EVERY opposing player suspects you, despite blending in perfectly.

I'm like those players, if I see someone running in my direction, they're getting shot at. I'm especially paranoid when playing as an Engineer but I guess everyone is.

It's not just blending in, its just being the farest away from any living breathing person. :mellow:

Does anybody know the Anti-aliasing setting to smooth this out? I know one exists. I have the game maxed out with 16x AA, dunno why it has those ugly rough edges.

I can't see the anti-aliasing problem in that, unless I'm looking at the wrong place? You do mean this, right?

Awwwwee yeah. 108 Score as a spy in 25 mins. I decided to use the standard watch to force myself to not camp, boy did it make me good. I got used to it after 2 mins and before I knew it I was a rampaging spy killing everyone. :D

 

I'd post a screenshot but I dunno how to change its format ;_;

I tried all the AA settings, doesn't get rid of the ugly edges. >.>

 

OT:

 

Gravel Pit is my new favorite map. It's so open, so you can play Soldier, Scout, and Spy pretty well on it.

It's a DX9 game. You're not going to get any more out of it.

Yeah, Source games aren't the most graphically professional, but I STILL can't see the rough edges. Unless you mean heavy's shirt, which is not supposed to be round. At this point I really have no clue what you're looking at.

I feel really stupid.

 

Today I figured out that the Cloak and Dagger recharges when you aren't moving.

 

I always thought that the "Motion sensitive" description meant that it recharges when enemies are moving around you. >.<
