Duck jump Fix & Big Steam Client Update
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 07.03.2009 Time 11:18

After yesterdays update the fun playing TF2 was gone for Scouts and Soldiers. The restriction of only ducking once while in the air from Valve was backfiring. Some jumps which were working before seemed to be impossible since the last update. Gladly the restriction is changed now to duck twice while in the air. Additionally the Scout's doublejump resetst the counter. And using the server variable "tf_clanmp_airducks" you can disable the restriction at all.

    TF2 Changelog
  • You can now duck twice in the air. Scout double jumps reset the in-air jump counts
  • Increased the jump velocity to account for the tuned bounding box sizes. Jump height should now match the prior-to-last-update heights
  • Added "tf_clamp_airducks" convar, set to 1 by default
    • Setting it to 0 will remove all constraints on ducking while in the air. Useful for servers running RJ challenge maps

Furthermore there were a Steam update released by Valve. What has changed you can read in the following changelog.
