    When i checked, i was pretty sure that i saw some changes on koth_viaduct. The rocks you can use to climb the battlements are now mirrored etc, and i think there was a change to the place where the new path is on viaduct pro. Not 100% on the second one though.

    Oh hey, I'm the medic.

    ... but I never saw that when we got to this part, it was just a black screen for me.

    Valve should probably get TF2's ESRB rating updated to include nudity since there are going to be so many drawings of dicks on that screen.

    Has anybody else noticed the change of the resupply locker sound? It's essentially the same but sounds low quality now.
    Idk maybe it's just me and I have an issue that needs fixing.

    Okay so, I was digging in the tf2_sound_misc_dir.vpk and I found in sound\ui folder killsound.wav, which amazingly can be replaced by any custom sound. I also found stuff like killsound_beepo, killsound_electro, killsound_note, killsound_percussion, etc.

    If you want to have a custom killsound, then just do everything in this format:
    Code:
    tf\custom\my_custom_stuff\sound\ui\killsound.wav
