Another post-update fix inbound.

  • Fixed a client crash caused by low detail skeletons
  • Fixed a dedicated server crash related to gamestats
  • Fixed a dedicated server crash caused by the payload carts getting stuck
  • Fixed green zombies not spawning on Linux dedicated servers
  • Fixed broken melee animations for some all-class weapons
  • Fixed players being able to issue the "boo" command when they are not ghosts
  • Fixed cloaked Spies losing their spells if they attempted to cast them while cloaked
  • Fixed the stealth spell only lasting for 2 seconds instead of 8 seconds
  • Fixed players keeping their spells if they were rolling for them while leaving hell
  • Fixed not switching back to the normal weapon if a spell was cast while standing on another spell
  • Updated spells so they cannot be deflected

Quoting because I'm a turd and started a new page. Thanks, Tomato!

Bones will never be rattled again.

so apparently the transmogrifyers keep the kind of what they change like a haunted is still haunted but that also means that selfmade's can be changed to other items

I honestly really really enjoy the update, but the Halloween restriction bears its ugly head again and for some items it's just nonsensical. How is it out of character for Scout to wear a hockey mask? Or any class to wear a medieval helmet??? I can get why you can't wear stuff like the bird head all year but some of these are far more normal then the stuff that isn't restricted.

From the Sept 18th post.

 

We're only going to ship items marked with a "Halloween 2013" tag, so remember to tag your holiday-themed items when you submit them. (You can re-upload old Halloween items that weren't accepted last time and mark them with the "Halloween 2013" tag for reconsideration.)

 
Also remember that anything you submit with this tag will be restricted to Halloween and Full Moons. And because it's restricted to Halloween and Full Moons, get creative! The tonal restrictions we normally ask our Workshoppers to observe with TF2 items don't really apply to a holiday where wizards and bomb books regularly attack from glowing skull islands, so if there's anything crazy you've been itching to make, now's the time.

 

In other words, blame the creators of the items.

huh so they pretty much made it into the exploit speed now without having to switch weapons.

There's a conspiracy that this video was supposed to be an intro to Helltower, but was scrapped at some point.

 

They're probably right.

Hm, doesn't quite have the polish of other official videos. I can see why it might have been scrapped. It's still really good though.


There once was a kitty named Tomo
As famous on the Internet as Domo
But his face got all shitty
Because he's a bad kitty
And now he's washed up like Rivers Cuomo

Probably wasn't finished on time and/or scrapped when they changed the main focus to the Mann Bros.

Apparently, there are now four confirmed spell types in the spellbook: Audere, Congeriae, Gratanter, and Tumidum.

 

The beginning letter of those four spells correlate with Adenine, Cytosine, Guanine, and Thymine, the bases of DNA.

 

Conspiracy hat? I say yes.

They added some taunt animations that are currently unused.  The medic and another pyro one is missing.

Here's some more.
