Get rid of server advertisements, skip forced waiting times like Pinion's Pot o' Gold and block server-own sound effects.
It's easy: Just download awesome mister Casual's https://github.com/CasualX/SourceProtect/blob/master/protect.cfg
and place it in your config file.
Step by setp: 1.
Create a new, empty text file named 'Exec protect.txt'. 2.
Copy and paste the text from here [github.com]
into this text file. 3.
Save the text file, then change its ending from '.txt' to '.cfg'. You should get a notice about changing the file type might lead to the content becoming gibberish; pretend you know what you're doing and confirm that. 4.
Deploy the resulting 'Exec protect.cfg' file at your Steam/steamapps/"your username here"/teamfortress/tf/cfg folder. 5.
Close everything and [re]start steam. 6.
Try it out, go ahead and play a round of TF2 without being bothered by any server-side annoyances.
