    Just for a little fun while im not racing I play a FPS shooter called Team fortress 2 that is downloadable via steam.
    Team Fortress 2 on Steam

    How many of you guys own TF2? Maybe we can get a server up sometime for a shoot em up session!
     
  2. Now THAT is a good idea!!! :becky:
    Hehehe, I haven't even played it that much but I really like it, it's mindless fun! I prefer to play the soldier, but I also like the spy a lot!

    Could be fun to have a RD TF2 event sometimes, everybody with headsets on and blowing each other to pieces! :cool::thumb:
     
  3. Noes, I don't have TF2. I only have CS:S, Portal, Garry's Mod & HL2 Deathmatch. HL2 Deathmatch could be fun as it's free to anyone with a Graphics card.
     
  4. i don't have TM2
    but i also have as Simon has, CS:S & HL2 Deathmatch
     
  5. Ive got TF2 aint played it that much though. Used to play a lotta Team Fortress Classic.
    And TF2 is so different not what i expected but its fun to play.

    Id be up for a bit of fps mayhem
     
  6. Been into TF2 almost since it came out,i do love a bit of Demoman action under the name "Captain Sensible".

    Whats an RCON password?
     
  10. RCON password allows remote admin of server from within the game client or third party tools.

    You will also need a sever.cfg to set the server up I have one i could post if you want.

    Running the server from the cmd line is a better option too as it uses less system resource with no gui to display

    We are currently having problems getting the server to fire up, Something to do with permissions,
     
  12. I take it this is a windows server any error message?

    To be honest ive never used the dedi server that you install from steam ive always used the hldsupdatetool, and installed the server in its own folder. I dont have the steam client on my server.

    Could meet on TS if its easier rather than posting.

    Ive just found this tool you are on about on the net, We were trying to run it through steam initially.

    Ill read up now :)
     
  14. just create a directory give everyone full control, put the tool in the directory.

    hldsupdatetool -command update -game tf -dir .

    From the command line in the server dir.
    with the dot would install tf2 to the current directory

    Server config file attached just remove the .txt ext and drop in

    serverroot\orangebox\tf\cfg

    Its fully commented so the options are easy to understand

  20. Id be up for some TF but we need a server and i dont really fancy just hitting a public server to be honest. I can run a server but the adsl conn is only 1.3 meg up so numbers would be limited. It would also not be running all the time only when in use.
