    April 1, 2008 - Team Fortress 2 Update Released

    Updates to Team Fortress 2 have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The specific changes include:

    Team Fortress 2

    -New "Meet The" video released. French-language "Meet the Engineer" available for download.

    -Fixed Linux builds not handling CREATEHAIRBALL cvar correctly

    -Added new control point map CP_2Fort

    -Games running custom maps have been moved from the main server browser to the custom server browser.

    -Fixed client crash when pressing f10 to bring up the Ingame Help screen.

    -Updated Achievements screen with several spelling corrections

    -Fixed Achievements screen resetting achievement progress for all clients upon updating the Achievements screen.

    -Fixed bug where BUILDCUBEMAPS would display the cubemaps after restarting the game less than two times.

    -Fixed timer bug that gave BLU players slightly lower respawn time on 2Fort, Granary, Hydro, and Well.

    -Updated Class selection screen on CTF_2Fort to default to Sniper instead of Heavy.

    -Increased Soldier's magazine capacity from 4 to 12.

    -Fixed bug where Scouts would occasionally register as two players by the team_capture_area entity.

    -Fixed bug where Demoman's stickybombs would dissappear upon death, instead of exploding as intended.

    -Changed Spy disguise so that the player's own name is displayed instead of a name from the opposing team.

    -Changed Spy disguise so that all classes are holding a cigarrette.

    -Changed Spy disguise so that all voice commands are done in the Spy's voice.

    -Added Flamethrower Sentry unlockable to Engineer's build list. This new turret is short-ranged but will fire on both friendlies and enemies that come near it.

    -Critical Medigun unlockable released. Please visit the Valve store page.

    -Changed Heavy to automatically die when exiting a spawn room without a medic.

    -Reverted Pyro back to release version, that's punishment enough!

    -Goldrush delayed again

    Well done. I got as far as: New "Meet The" video released and stopped reading to head over to Steam and watch. It wasn't there. Then I realized what day it was.

    I tip my hat to you, sir.

    Since I am thoroughly in the spirit of the day (and completely paranoid) I immediately suspected it to be a joke but it is a clever idea nonetheless.

    Not to derail the thread or anything, but TF2F got their hands on a real video of actual Goldrush gameplay, and I think I saw a gameplay modification as mentioned above.

    See if you can spot which one: www.youtube.com/ watch?v=UbLxwb2bqfg

    And, btw, I loved "Critical Medigun unlockable released. Please visit the Valve store page." But don't laugh too hard... Valve is fighting EA, MS, and Sony about this exact issue - they want to charge for updates and Valve won't allow that. In theory, that *would* be like console gamers having to pay for the unlocks. Valve would rather there zero console updates than to "nickel and dime" (quote from Robin Walker's interview) their customers.

    I'm familiar with that foolishness, and I REBUKE IT.

    The April Fools deadline is a weak attempt at pussying out just as the iron is getting hot - I compare it to asking the coach for a bathroom pass at the beginning of gym class - a safety net for those who cannot take 24 hours of constant, paranoia-fueled terror.

    To me, it's serious business - I was rigging every desk and office in our building until 2am last night (a total of about fifteen), and I'm getting ready to go see what excitement my handiwork has created at my best friend's apartment - where, during lunch, I entered his apartment with four employees and flipped all of his furniture upside down. His computer monitor was literally sitting on the bottom of his desk - and a shirt that was hanging on the back of his chair is now hanging from the wheels. Bed, entertainment unit, etc. lol He gets home tonight at around 8pm. It will be epic.

    As long as I'm alive, you will not be allowed to rest a second during April 1st. So, sorry, but my personal tradition grants me the ability to transcend such written rules - as does the power of my decade-old, trademark April Fools t-shirt that simply reads, "WATCH YOUR ASS".
