    "I hate that it's halowe'en but what are you going to do..."

    Does tf_forced_holiday 0 turn off haloween mode even during events?

    Just want to say that the default screenshot command is F5 for jpeg anyway, so that command tip most likely does nothing unless you already rebound it. I did learn about the quality of the image though - great!

    You are both right. There are two picture locations:

    steam/steamapps/common/team fortress 2/tf/screenshots (.tga)

    steam/userdata/760/remote/440/screenshots (.jpg)

    The fly through video was all SFM and I don't think in even remotely qualified to do a video on it. I barely managed to make that video for myself!

    A second option, make a bind that lets you toggle the hud and viewmodels:

    alias prepscreen "cl_drawhud 0; r_drawviewmodel 0; alias curscreen donescreen"
    alias donescreen "cl_drawhud 1; r_drawviewmodel 1; alias curscreen prepscreen"
    alias curscreen prepscreen
    bind u curscreen

    I put map editing stuff like this in a 'dev.cfg' so I don't have these commands interfering when I'm playing TF2 normal but you can do it however you want.

    If I remember correctly, you can just change your pc's time to remove candy health kits and such.

    I just use the devcamera system. Identical settings each time, fully automated and no hud or such.
