    Why...? It's not like we're changing it to [Steam] Thread XXX: Triscuitable is a bad person, we're whining that we prefer the other thread title. My preference for the other thread title has nothing to do you with you.

    I will, however, defer to the newest thread title, as it pokes fun at everyone involved in the thread.

    Yeah I'll see about setting one of those up. I've got to track down the OSX binaries for the TF2 server client. That, or install Linux.

    I should probably setup VPN on my other machine then.

    I love forged alliance. I highly recommend getting Forged Alliance Forever, since that has all kinds of patches and balance tweaks and also a matchmaking system that still functions (and serves to allow non-steam and steam users to play together)

    So I'm looking to pick up Guild Wars 2, but since it's not on Steam (as I was hoping it might), would anyone be interested in a switcheroo of sorts? I've got a number of valuables in my TF2 inventory...

    Well, server network traffic is monitored, and the sysadmins don't like it when people run video game servers out of dorm rooms.

    Given the game itself is free from the largest PC game digital distribution system in operation, the qualifier isn't really necessary.

    Haha! Well, my school Team Fortress 2 club had a server up for a while, but all the admins graduated. I'll see if I can take over the server. I'm just not sure whether it's running on rented hardware or on Student Union hardware.

    Yeah, but I tend to come to class in the morning and see three people with HP laptops (ugh) playing the game. It's nice to see that at least one of them (usually) isn't playing the Pyro.

    I joined a server two nights ago. The team had a medic, two heavies, three demomen, two snipers (one was using his SMG exclusively), a spy, two soldiers, and five pyros.

    One knew what he was doing (me!), airblasting enemies away from our objective, following up with the Reserve Shooter, and occasionally burning and then critting with the Axtinguisher. I've gotten so much better with the Reserve Shooter, that I don't really bother with the Axtinguisher anymore. Sometimes I'll be assisted by a good scout or sniper who tosses Jarate or Mad Milk at some enemies, and I'll hit them with a Scorch Shot for splash afterburn before closing in and using the Neon Annihilator.

    The rest equipped Backburners (the ones that just got nerfed a few patches ago, while the flamethrower got buffed) and W+M1'd.

    Sadly, Google Chrome doesn't allow non-Web Store scripts as of the newest "patch". I'm not too confident in my workaround skills, either.

    Did the pyro's airblast or flamethrower range get extended? I can definitely tell the damage was buffed (their flames melt through my scout like butter), but it also seems like I'm getting hit from a little further away. That could just be my frustration though.

    Also, TF2 isn't running very well for me. I'm getting a fairly stable FPS rate, between 30-80 depending on the map, but I'm also getting video stutters a lot. It's frustrating. My internet is working weirdly right now, so it could be the massively unstable ping, but even when the ping is low and stable it's been happening. And my custom HUD broke after the last update, something that hasn't happened before. I reinstalled it and everything, but the font sizes are still messed up and everything is screwy. Since all of these happened after the last update, there may (or may not) be something messed up that caused all of these problems. Advice?

    Edit: One more thing. The link between these two parts is that the item server is down a lot for me, even when it isn't for other people. That means I can't use my Mad Milk and the afterburn kills me more often than I would like.

    I have a few low level characters (sub 20 I think), and a few high powered characters(70s), if you like a quick boost through the low levels. I enjoy the game greatly.

    I went ahead and added you. I'm installing the game now, so it'll probably take a while before I can actually play.

    I can play some. I can also get you to (near) end-game in like no time.

    Edit: I'm gonna play some Now-ish.

    The standard flamethrower was buffed up to the Backburner's level, and the Phlogistinator up to the previous flamethrower DPS. Degreaser and Backburner were kept the same, though they had their descriptions changed to match the new base damage. The change was applied during Pyromania.

    So I'm enjoying Deus Ex, but I've gotten a little stuck. I want to get out of the apartments in china without being seen, but the guards seemed to have phased within the walls so they can see and shoot me, but I can't see them without x-ray vision, nor can I take them out. Any tips? I tried to go in the ducts, but the phased guards see me in there as well.
