Scripting Help in SteamPipe
Ok here's the thing, SteamPipe was a great thing, it decreased load times by a lot AND just made everything a lot smoother. But here's the catch, in the old method of scripting you could copy scripts into the config files and they would work. You could create alias' within the config files, everything. NOW since they got rid of individualized scripting for every class I can't make class specific scripts and even if I copy my script into the one Global Config folder, for some reason alias' don't work in it. Just wondering what/if I'm doing something wrong, all help is appreciated.

Here's the script:
(In case you're wondering it IS a sentry jump script)

alias "+crouchjump" "+attack2; +jump; +duck"
alias "-crouchjump" "-attack2; -jump"
bind "LEFTARROW" +crouchjump

alias "+fire" "lastinv; +attack2"
alias "-fire" "-attack2; -duck"
bind "DOWNARROW" +fire

I used to have this in my Engie config folder and it worked wonders. When I try to copy this into the config folder itself it doesn't work. Help plz.

That is odd. My scripts all work fine, there's gotta be an error on your part (no offense). You sure you're using /steamapps/common/yada yada yada now?

To be exact this is my pathway:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\cfg

I think the config.cfg is the correct one to edit but I'll admit I'm not completely sure.

I also HAVE NOT deleted the original scripts still in my old TF2 folders (My Engineer.cfg file)
so that may or may not be why.

Try making a folder in the "custom" folder named "Config Scripts" or something like that, then make a cfg folder in there and put the scripts in there.

Haven't played with scripts before, but that method seems to be working for practically everything else...

It's autoexec.cfg for those types of scripts, or at least that's what's most commonly used and easiest to work with. The original scripts shouldn't change things, since they're no longer read by the game at this point. The individual class configs not working sure is odd though, mine still do so I can't tell what could be causing it.

The thing is the configs are a part of the stock installation outside the .gcf's or .vpk's, I had/have a lot of scripts for instance and they didn't get copied over to /tf/download/ and instead got copied over to the /tf/cfg/ folder.

So where is the autoexec.cfg in the new layout? Do I need to make a new one or am I just a bad looker?

It doesn't exist to start so you'd need to create it, or at least that's what it was like before, but doubt they changed it.

How do I save comething as a .cfg though?

Two options, one is to create a new text file, save it as autoexec.cfg and have it save as any file (or something like that). The other is to copy one of the .cfg's already there, paste it, and just rename it to autoexec.cfg. Either one will do.
