Latest News The Future of DFS Hey all After enough time of thinking, I've finally come to a conclusion that I am no longer in the condition or a proper state of mind to be able to keep managing and continuing working on DFS.
My current life situation and ongoing struggles are taking too great of a toll. I need to be able to focus on my life and handle my priorities properly and handling DFS related stuff is proving too much of a burden on top. I feel like I've given my best in terms of effort and work put into the servers, the community and to DFS overall until now. I've been doing this for eight whole years and I truly appreciate all of you being there alongside me to help me build, and grow DFS into what it has become today.
And since I do not want to let all of you and DFS down. I will be relinquishing my owner role and pass it to GreenSwede whilst promoting Light08 to the role of co-owner, who both have contributed a lot to DFS for a very long time.
I am certain they will be able to handle managing the servers, the community and everything else. So what does this all mean and where do things go from here?

From our review, we have not found any reason for TF2 players to be alarmed or avoid the current builds as always, playing on the official servers is recommended for greatest security.
April 23, Update: Valve says it has reviewed the code in question—which comes from CS:GO, but includes very old pieces of Team Fortress 2—and does not consider it dangerous. However, it will "continue to investigate. From this review, we have not found any reason for players to be alarmed or avoid the current builds as always, playing on the official servers is recommended for greatest security.
We have reviewed the leaked code and believe it to be a reposting of a limited CS:GO engine code depot released to partners in lateand originally leaked in From this review, we have not found any reason for players to be alarmed or avoid the current builds. April 22, Original story: Source code for Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was reportedly leaked to the public today, which has created fears that player security could be at risk.
The source of the leak isn't currently certain, but according to SteamDB the code is dated fromand was previously made available to Source engine licensees. Valve News Network's Tyler McVicker, who regularly reports on leaks and rumors at Valve, claimed in a Twitch stream that the code originally came from a "member of the Source engine development community" in According to McVicker, members of Source Engine modding team Lever Softworks took steps to "contain" the leak after he warned Valve and received no response.
The person who leaked the code today was not the same person who originally leaked it, he said, but a disgruntled former member of Lever who had recently been booted from the group. It would hurt the Source engine development community as a whole, because if Source code leaks, Valve then pulls the ability to have that source code to develop off of.
In a follow-up conversation, McVicker told us that the leaked content did not originate with his group at all. Instead, he repeated his statement that he and a few other modders had tried to keep the word of the leak restricted to a few "niche" communities on the modding scene. It was a largely successful effort, until a falling-out with the current leaker led to today's events. I was trying to keep it from leaking because if something of this magnitude leaks, it will hurt many legitimate developers, and it will destroy many communities.
And unfortunately the damage is now done, and the real people that are going to hurt here are Source Engine developers. The one upside McVicker sees is that this leak isn't really "new" at all, and so the risk to players hopefully isn't anywhere near a worst-case scenario. McVicker did not identify the original "Source engine development community" leaker he references, nor today's leaker.
However, his story is backed up by fellow Valve enthusiast Jaycie Erysdren, who explained the story from her perspective on Twitter.
There's still some uncertainty around the source of the leak, but the more immediate issue is the reported discovery of remote code execution bugs in the source code, noted in this TF2 subreddit thread.
If such a vulnerability existed, unscrupulous programmers could use to compromise the security of TF2 and CS:GO players. Remote code execution is what it sounds like: the ability to make someone else's PC execute code or commands remotely. Due to the recent source code leak we will be closing our servers for the forseeable future. This is because of the uncertainty surrounding security of our infrastructure, as well as a potential for damage to be caused to your computer.
Note: No new vulnerabilities have been confirmed at this time. See the update at the top of this article for Valve's response, which is that it has "not found any reason for players to be alarmed or avoid the current builds. Ina " buffer overflow vulnerability " was discovered that left TF2, CS:GO, Portal 2, and others open to exploits that could be triggered simply by shooting at an enemy. In that case, however, the bug was found by a security research company, which notified Valve and then went public after the bug was fixed.
The current leak could reveal new RCEs before Valve has a chance to correct them.People always talk about what a great musician Mozart was. But you know who never updated any of his albums with free music? Go ahead, guess. Did you guess Team Fortress 2?

Rick May, the inimitable voice of the Soldier for thirteen years, many shorts and countless updates, passed away this April at age We were lucky enough to work with Rick many times in the studio over the past decade. A quick-witted and kind-hearted collaborator, Rick endowed the character with a trademark bellow and bootfulls of idiotic charm.
He will be missed by the Team Fortress dev team and community, and remembered for the indelible character he helped bring to life for so many years. It's that time of the year again!

NA, attending to represent their region. On the evening of Thursday, July 25th, a bug was introduced that allowed some older crates to grant an Unusual hat on every opening. We fixed the bug the following morning and decided to trade-lock the hats from the bugged crates while we evaluated the situation. Over the past week, we have been discussing ways to address this situation with the goal of minimizing the impact on the TF2 community as a whole, while preserving the experience of customers who had simply opened a crate, made a trade, or purchased from the market on the 25th, unaware that a bug produced their item.
During our investigation we discovered that a small number of accounts acquired these hats and a smaller portion of those accounts acquired an exceedingly large number of them. Based on this, we've decided that if you currently own one of these Unusual hats, the first one added to your account will be made tradable. Any other Unusual you have received due to the bug will remain permanently trade locked.The Silly Servers are for players to socialize and have goofy fun.
This means that people are free to chill, do crazy and unconventional things, and enjoy a non-serious TF2 experience. If you regularly kill people who are goofing off and not being combative, you will be warned and eventually kicked. This does not mean that you cannot kill, period. Just leave folks alone if they aren't trying to fight.
If there are players who are excessively killing others, instigating conflict, or just plainly being a nuisance, use the votekick system if necessary or request help from a Moderator on our Discord Server.

AI bots are coded with sophisticated artificial intelligence designed to emulate player actions in game, and can be used without enabling cheats.
Puppet bots have no AI coding, but are useful for testing and training. Puppet bots require the server to have cheats enabled, which also disables achievements.TF2: Fun on Friendly Servers
AI bots are designed to emulate human players and are not directly controlled. Additionally, their classes are chosen at random. There is one exception, however; Bots do not see Deathcam shots when killed; therefore, a player cannot attain Deathcam-related achievements. Also, killing a bot with a Strange weapon will not increase the weapon's kill count, unless the weapon has a Strange Part : Robots Destroyed applied to it, in which case, the kill will be added to the Strange Part and not the main counter.
AI bots come in four skill levels ranging from easy to expert. Sigsegv has compiled detailed explanation on the skill differences. AI bots are fully released . Currently, all classes are working properly due to the Hatless Updateincluding the once-buggy Spy. The use of AI bots on non-supported maps is possible by following certain steps; however, they will not emulate human players as well.
Bots will not work properly on any PLR map as they either can't jump over the railings on Hightower or get stuck in a random corner in spawn; and bots have a dance party on any other PLR map this may change in the future. Note: A pack of pre-made bot meshes has been compiled for many popular maps. The AI bots are programmed to have different names, with many of their names being references to Team Fortress 2Valve's other works, and computer programming.
Many of these names have been requested on the Steam forums. The following bot names were found in a leaked source code version of TF2, containing bot names that were never put into production for unknown reasons. On Mannpower maps, they will treat it as Capture the Flag, but be unable to use Grappling Hooks and cannot intelligently use the Powerups they walk over. For a more comprehensive list of commands, see the Valve list of TF2 console commands and variables.
The bot was created and is being maintained by Cheeseh, and the website can be found here. Players can also try [APG] Foundation's Nightly builds which are updated and enhanced to work on those TF2 latest updates that would corrupt the bots. However it will take some work and finding the new hookinfo for the bots to function. Be sure to use Hookinfo tool and adjust the config. The bots run on a waypoint system and must be manually setup by a player instead of typing a command.
RCBot2 are their own separate bot, so they can be used alongside the regular TFBots if one so chooses.
