Update released - Medic Ubercharge Adapted
Written by Unknown on 02.04.2008 Time 15:57

Last night, Valve published an update for Team Fortress 2. Apart from some bugfixes the Medic's Ubercharge timer was adapted insofar as it is reduced as soon as the Medic switches to another healing target. In other words, the more people a Medic ubers, the shorter the Ubercharge will last.

- Added Custom Tab explanation dialog to be shown the first time the server browser is opened
- Changed Medigun Ubercharge meter to drain faster for each target that still has Ubercharge beyond your current target. This means there is a penalty for having multiple people being Ubercharged at one time
- Fixed crouch-jump exploit that allowed players to get outside of the world
- Fixed bad characters in the chat string when achievements are announced in languages other than English
- Fixed a few instances of truncated text in the menus and dialogs for languages other than English
- Fixed problem that was preventing some dedicated servers from uploading gamestats
- Fixed scoring bug during Sudden Death when the map timelimit is triggered
- Added the string "(extra slot was added for SourceTV)" when maxplayers is increased for SourceTV


This means that from now on, Medics can not freely switch between Ubercharge targets without compromising on the time of its effectiveness. Thus they need to prioritize, select their Ubercharge targets more carefully and choose classes which are likely to have the most effect.

In addition to the update for Team Fortress 2 a small Steam update was also distributed last night:


- Fixed corrupt backup creation for certain games
- Updated game overlay to support Assassin’s Creed


Update: As it seems, a mapchange on Linux servers with Source Dedicated Server causes player connection problems. Windows server are not affected. Numerous calls for a bugfix for this issue have appeared in the mailing list.
