Mann Vs Machine

Looks wonderful doesn’t it? Humans vs robots in the Team Fortress 2 world.

The reality is a bit different. Servers are overloaded as players try to join, but there are free servers so it must be buggy too. I didn’t wait around.

  1. OK, there is a way to play this. Host your own server! From the original comment:

    1. Go to your web browser.
    2. Type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. (different for your specific brand/model of router).
    3. Type in the username/password (different for your specific brand/model of router).
    4. Navigate the GUI to the Applications/Gaming tab (different for your specific brand/model of router).
    5. Enter in the info from the post into the appropriate fields remembering to check to enable and save the specific rules. (UDP 27015, TCP 27015, UDP 27005)
    6. Start TF2 :p
    7. Open console “~” key (if that doesn’t work go to options/controls/adv-enable console
    8. In console type map mvm should see a few maps to pick from there.
    9. Server should be ready for people to join after you get done loading the map you chose.
    10. Focus fire always on Tanks, Bomb carriers, and Sentry Busters (If engie pick up your sentry and kite them remembering that cool guys don’t look at explosions).

    ‘course if you’re on a DSL connection remote players may find the game rather laggy unfortunately.


  2. Hosted a couple of games of TF2 MVM tonight. @danroundhill and a friend Brian joined and we had a blast. It gets hard but with a team of 6 communicating and playing our roles we could beat them.

    I’m amazed that it wasn’t laggy (much) for people. The tips in this comment helped, particularly:

    Step 4.5: If you didn’t set a password, when you load back in after the map change type “sv_visiblemaxplayers 6? into the console to avoid getting spammed with spectators that waste your precious upload bandwidth
