    Yes, we agree the map is an amazing piece. But it was meant to run on your computers, and not on an internet hosted dedicated server. We had an issue with a user running that map and it threw the entire server in to the twilight zone.

    Please refrain from uploading and running tr_walkway on our dedicated servers.

    Thanks!

    I'd like to point out this really extends to any specialty maps that change cvars automatically.

    Yeah, seems pretty logical, I never understood why there were public servers running tr_walkway. (go open steam server browser, there are a lot of them)

    It allows for really nasty thing
    -teleport players ( really funny)
    -taking away all weapons (very confusing and very funny)
    -turning sentries against them (funny if you turn them back right away)

    plus you can take over the server if you want to.

    You must teach me. That sounds fun to do in my lan games with my friends.

    Also, is it deleted off the server?

    most of them can be found here: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?p=124549

    Code:
    //Teleport players
    //enter this command while having the crosshair on them (only needs to be done one time)
    ent_setname guy
    //enter this command to teleporter to the spot under the crosshair (usually has a little delay)
    ent_teleport guy
    
    //take away all weapons
    ent_fire tf_weapon* Kill
    //they get them back after visiting a locker, or in walkway all the time, to prevent this
    ent_fire func_regenerate disable
    
    //Turn sentries against somebody (2 is red, 3 is blu)
    ent_fire obj_sentrygun setteam 2
    ent_fire obj_sentrygun setteam 3

    Ent_fire commands can be loaded and the server's cvars are changed. If the server has not a protection against players using those commands, they can do nasty things. The readme inside the rar file tells to all server owner the danger of having this map in a public server.

    I have a key bound to mp_respawnplayers. It made for some hilarious fun. :p

    If you are a server owner and wish to run tr_walkway, make sure you have protection, link below -v
