    I've been searching for how to do this, but I cant find it.

    Basically the red/blu box that appears at the start of a round and says "Capture all of Red's Control Points to with the game etc.." renders in the middle of my screen and stays there for about 15 seconds longer than it should. I have minimal HUD enabled. Do any of you know how to disable this?

    With my map I had to actively enable this feature, but maybe it was because I didn't have any control points.

    I don't know how to disable it but you can change what that intro text says by doing this:

    Add a logic_auto.

    Add the following 2 outputs:

    OnMapSpawn ---- tf_gamerules ---- SetBlueTeamGoalString ---- The text you want displayed
    OnMapSpawn ---- tf_gamerules ---- SetRedTeamGoalString ---- The text you want displayed

    Don't worry about the broken output icons.

    Maybe if you set the text as blank, it won't show up at all?

    This is where I got the info from.

    I'm not talking about how to do this for my map, I want to know if its possible for me personally to disable its appearing in my game for all maps.

    That did it! Thanks.

    Kind of interesting though -- does that mean people have to play a map 50 times before the text goes away?

    I have no idea if that is the "magic number" or not. Honestly, I haven't even been to that thread, I copied the entire post from the TF2F forums. 50 does seem a bit high.

    That can't be right, I know I've played more than 50 times on dustbowl and I'm sure I still get those messages

    Yes I do think that is the case. I had the opposite problem in that I was trying to add custom messages to the map I was making but they weren't showing up because I had played the map too many times.
