ABOUT DirtyIdlers

For those against the item drop system and other atrocities...

This group is also against the general drop system in use. Have a problem with it? Join the Dirty Idlers!

*IMPORTANT NOTICE!*
Let the record show. This group is not against every single wearer of halos...This group is againts what has been put against us and forced us to be branded as "vile cheaters" and such. And of course, we detest the fact that some halo wielders are taking the opportunity to rub it in our faces. So join the group if you wish. But please understand. We don't hate halos. We dislike the way we as a community (the dirty idlers) have been treated with no real warning.

Final Statement regarding the Idler Program...
We used the idler because we did not believe it to be a cheat. We used the idler because we DID want hats, but we couldn't have that opportunity 24/7. So we ended up using it whenever we were busy, AFK, at work or whatnot, when we were asleep. In other words... we used the idler when we could not play tf2. VALVe, however, decides that no matter the circumstances, they will just punish us PERIOD. No warning. No nothing. Just straight up wrath. It is part of the human nature to want such things that make themselves feel special. These hats are a prime example. Some of us in this community that did idle are actually quite avid gamers and fans of tf2. VALVe wanted to get rid of farming for items/achievements. Their answer? The (horrible) new "Random Drops" system and of course: Hats. Since we couldn't farm OR use skill...we had an answer. The Idler. We chose the Idler. That is all...for now....

Hi guys! I wrote a CMD batch script that will auto-reconnect you if you get disconnected.

http://www.sourceop.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic& t=2086

Place the content of the rar file anywhere [usually ~\steam\idle\]
and run RunOnce.bat to setup the script for your system [needs to know Steam installation directory, and steam username for the TF2 directory]

Soon to come:
- Auto-cycle through custom list of servers [from text file].
- Start&Go: TF2 launches and autoconnect to a working server.
- Even more brainless automatic setup
- Support for folder name spaces [not really a feature, just a bug fix]
- Any bugs you guys find, or feature requests I can do.


Dont worry, this isn't an application/program. This batch script only uses Windows CMD [DOS box] and registry editor for the video config.
It does not interact directly with TF2
It simply writes in a CFG file [ie autoexec.cfg]
and
Reads a text file containing the TF2 console dump.

ENJOY!!!!!!

NOTES FOR INSTALLATION

---Folder names with spaces are currently not supported---
If your steam folder is c:\program files\steam
You will need to write c:\progra~1\steam when RunOnce.bat asks you for the steam directory

If you have any other folder with a space, here is how to convert [only to write in RunOnce.bat, no need to actually rename your folder]

1. Write the first 6 characters of your folder name [do not count spaces]
2. Remove any spaces from those 6 characters
3. Add ~1 to the end of the folder name.

Example: C:\Program Files\steam\ BECOMES C:\progra~1\steam\
Example: C:\cool story\steam\ BECOMES C:\coolsto~1\steam\
Example: C:\I love idling\steam\ BECOMES C:\ilovei~1\steam
Example: C:\sm all\steam\ BECOMES c:\small~1\steam\


---Do not write a " \ " at the end of your folder---
GOOD: C:\progra~1\steam
BAD: C:\progra~1\steam\



These two issues will be resolved on next week's update [the one including the features I talked about]
