Hey all,

July 8, 2008 - Team Fortress 2 Update Released (7/8/2008)

Anybody know for sure if the minor TF2 update today has broken all my previous demofiles?

We got the update about midnight. Here's what happens when I tried to playback a demo I recorded four hours ago:


Code:

] playdemo mayhemtues
Playing demo from mayhemtues.dem.

Team Fortress
Map: pl_goldrush
Players: 20 / 24
Build: 3523
Server Number: 10

Attemped to precache unknown particle system "rockettrail_!"!
Attemped to precache unknown particle system "pyro_blast_warp"!
Attemped to precache unknown particle system "burninggibs"!
No pure server whitelist. sv_pure = 0
RecvProp type doesn't match server type for DT_ObjectDispenser/"healing_array"
Host_EndGame: CL_ParseClassInfo_EndClasses: CreateDecoders failed.


It has done this before with the Goldrush/Medic update breaking demofiles. I'm off to scope out the Steam Forums a bit....

Actually no I'm not, since I have to wait until a mod approves me to post on Steam Forums. Doh.

- Tom

Unbelievably, yep, according to some random on the Steam Forums. Wasn't expecting that, but thankfully I already don't remember this.

Not to worry, Baldrick has a cunning plan. I imaged my drive with Maxblast when I was salvaging my dying hard disk yesterday, so I have a backup of Steam and TF2 from just before the update kicking about. I'll image that onto my fresh hard disk again, unplug the network cable and *fingers crossed* I should be able to start TF2 in offline mode without the update. From there I can play it back, and grab it to an AVI.

It's an awfully long way to go to pick up a chicken, but that's devotion for ye.

There's another way to preserve old demo files involving arcane and mysterious backup methods - I saw it on the Control Point forums a while ago, but my entire-disk backup should be good for these demos.

Have these screenies to keep you going:




Cheers,

Tom

Lmao!

That "darkness tunnel" is the best. <3
Well good luck with that PC stuff man, I guess you're gonna need it. I lost 6 demo files too so yeah, updates sucks.

Oh and...


Cool
