    --------------------------------------

    Via HLDS:

    For TF2:

    Valve posted:
    - Fixed a common "FindModel" crash for replays
    - Fixed the Crafty Hair not using styles for the yellow and brown hair
    - Improved the "Restore" UI for customizing items in backpack
    - Fixed floating arrows on carried objects
    - Mann vs. Machine
    - Added a penalty system to deter players from repeatedly abandoning Mann Up games
    - Corrected the respawn time for the Mannslaughter mission
    - Updated MissionCycle behavior. Servers will always cycle to a mission listed in the MissionCycle file.
    For other Source engine games:

    Valve posted:
    - Fixed the "disconnect" command regression from the previous update
    - Fixed tools like vbsp working with new model format
    - Fixed a con_logfile ConVar exploit
    Rumor has it:

    - TheAnthal of reddit shares his item schema findings

    - ...with some additional info on items having a cards attribute in the item schema and some new HUD files. I smell speculation material...

    - The P2 CE soundtrack is on Amazon for $18 w/ shipping (thanks to ned_ballad for the find!)

    - Custom MvM wave makers may want to read this write-up by goosmurf of reddit about the MissionCycle behavior

    Hopefully it doesn't count losing connection.

    That would be a little unfair for people with lousy internet.

    Only time I've done this is when I repeatedly went through matchmaking to reconnect to a server that I was kicked for inactivity from due to needing to take a piss. I went through about 9 servers, blacklisting every one that wasn't the right one, until I met back up with my friends and we finished the final wave on Decoy on the first attempt. They had to explain to about 5 people the situation and those people left so that I could reclaim my spot.

    That's the only way that I know to bypass the ad-hoc connection restriction if I want to join my friends for some reason

    Stage 1, if you are coming from the BLU base, after the first checkpoint, to the left.
