    Interesting.

    The picture looks like a bad photoshop, though, which i'm assuming it is.

    I like the way they are warning against 32 player server. That is a nice touch.

    I suppose the golden Wrench is an unique item for the polycount contest winner.

    Also this might be a fake, but some users state that this is a hidden texture:

    Can anyone confirm?

    It's real and there's more secret messages in it. Portal 2 here we go again!

    Edit: Okay, I looked for it in my tf2 folder and cfg files but I can't seem to find it. Maybe it's not real?

    Edit 2: Then again, looking around, it seems everyone believes it's real. Hrm.

    Edit 3: Kay, found it. It's real.

    I wish there was more to the "turn corpses into gold statues" gimmick. They look pretty shoddy.

    I have deciphered the writing on the images. using the url on the second image, I typed in the writing at the top, and used "saxtonhale" as the key.

    This is the result:

    That only means nobody has found it yet or nobody with a public backpack has found it, or nobody who has found it has had their backpack viewed

    It isn't proof that you can't find it ;)

    You're late to the party. Alpha Crypt isn't the only alpha that image has.

    By applying it's alpha channel you get the kill icon of this new weapon.

    Messing around in GCFScape I've found a bit of stuff in the GCFs regarding golden wrenches ... several new materials in the "materials" file, and something called "notify_golden_wrench.res" in the main content file. The golden wrench loadout icon is also in the material file, as is what I think is the gold player-statue texture seen in the YouTube demonstrations.

    Interestingly, the texture file called "gold_wrench" appears to just be the basic wrench texture when loaded in VTFEdit ... does something have to be changed to make it appear gold here, or is the gold color somehow only added in-game, or what?
