TF2 Bugfixes and Changes
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 15.10.2009 Time 07:56

It was only a few days ago, that Robin Walker confirmed, that L4D2 (who, apart from me can't help to think about star wars androids rather than an Ego Shooter?) is finished and we can look forward to another TF2 update.

Apart from the usual bugfixes, some really nice changes found their way into this update. It has been some time, since the beloved "equip" command got removed from the game. It allowed loadout switching using a simple bind command e.g. switch from the standard medigun to the Kritzkrieg with one single button. With "+quickswitch" another approach to this got implemented.
With the new server convar tf_teamtalk, clans who do not happen to have a voice-server are now enabled  to use a similar voice-chat ingame. Another interesting fact about this cvar: Ingame voice is saved in recorded demofiles.
Last but not least, the heavy will now receive points, when his teammates replenish hitpoints using his sandvich.
