Beta: Equipment-menu and Pyro-weapons updated
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 30.09.2011 Time 17:20

Valve uses the beta again for several changes. Already 3 days ago, suggestions by the community for the preset system were implemented. That means, you can bind different keys for the 4 weapon presets, what avoids opening the menu for the combinations. Furthermore, the Backburner's 10% bonus damage has been removed.

General

  • Updated the loadout preset system based on feedback
  • Updated the flow of the class select screen

Gameplay

  • Removed the +10% damage bonus from The Backburner

Undocumented changes

  • The Force-A-Nature, Huntsman, Direct Hit, Shortstop, Black Box, and Original now have hidden stats that disable character animations in the class select screen.
  • Fixed a bug where fractional stats were being mistakenly being rounded up in the weapon descriptions.
  • Fixed a bug where domination and revenge sounds originated from the world, resulting in significantly quieter sounds.
  • The Boston Basher causes self-bleed on a miss again.
  • Changes to loadout presets:
    • Added a hint dialog box which explains the concept of loadout presets when in the loadout or class select menus.
    • Added load_itempreset console command.
    • Added keyboard options to bind keys to all four presets.
    • Fixed Quickswitch, so that your changes don't get stomped by presets.
    • Quickswitch changes are now saved to the currently selected preset.
    • Added the preset UI (4 vertical buttons) to Quickswitch.
    • Changing presets in the class loadout screen, class selection screen, or Quickswitch causes you to respawn if tf_respawn_on_loadoutchanges is nonzero.
    • Enlarged the buttons a bit.
  • Re-added "taunt-switching" via a new server cvar named tf_allow_taunt_switch.
    • Set to 0, it disables taunt-switching.
    • Set to 1, it allows weapon switching at the beginning of the taunt.
    • Set to 2, it allows weapon switching at any moment during the taunt.

Yesterday (29.09.2011), more weapons have been altered in the beta. However, that concerns only the Pyro.

Pyro

Flamethrower:
  • Damage increased 10%
Backburner: 
  • Removed +10% damage bonus
Degreaser:
  • Added -10% damage
  • Removed -25% burn damage
