- This update breaks an 83 day servicing drought in a repetitive climate featuring swelling drought durations in recent years, and is the 5th update to happen so far in 2022
- By this point in the year in 2021, only 2 updates had been released - the 3rd would not happen for 1 more day on 6/22/21, which brought an end to the still-record-longest drought of 112 days (from 3/2/21 to 6/22/21)
- Had this update occurred yesterday instead, it would've tied at 2nd with the now-3rd place 82 day long drought set earlier this year (from 1/5/22 to 3/28/22)

MidasOPis anyone else having trouble getting their linux server to run after the update? Its telling me that im missing the 32bit libraries and I'm definitely not missing them

Valve forgot they once shipped a file called

bin/libstdc++.so.6

in the TF2 server install. Delete that file, and your server might boot, but some plugins could still be broken.
Only delete that file inside the TF2 gameserver directory, it's rather important for your Linux server.

If you're using srctvplus to provide a better STV experience, that's currently broken. Sapphonie quickly made a patched version of srctvplus.so (Linux only). If you're on a Windows server (some NFO servers are), you'll need to disable srctvplus until a patched Windows version is available.

If you're using TFTrue for logs, demos.tf, whitelist.tf etc...that's currently broken in interesting ways, e.g. "rcon status" will show no response.

I'm going to miss doing that loadout switch respawn bug because it was really funny, but tbh, a lot of these fixes are "obscure" issues that I'm truly surprised to see fixed. Good update overall

My NFO server was still down this morning. Asked support and they told me SRCTV was causing it to stay down. So, I updated my SRCTV to get my server back up.

Just in case any of you were still having server issues.

There's no need to update the logs.tf plugin. F2's plugins have not needed updates to be compatible with this new TF2 version (your sourcemod install probably does). If you're simply reinstalling all of the plugins anyway, be careful not to use F2's original version of the pause plugin. RGL has added onto this plugin to also fix the uber pause building bug, you can find their version here: https://github.com/l-Aad-l/updated-pause-plugin/releases/tag/v1.4.2

SRCTV and the TF2 server run within the same process from the same files, so I'm confused about that answer. If you mean the srctvplus plugin, yes that needed to be updated, else it would crash your server on boot.

Okay thanks, I updated sourcemod last night but I incorrectly assumed that I had something else that I needed to do as well, didn't have a chance to test anything last night afterward.

yes, after about 9 or 10 times seeing the killcam it starts to freeze and then eventually timeout/crash after more deaths
hud reloadscheme "resets" the counter for this
i have tried everything from fresh tf2 to removing the hud element relating to the killername stuff entirely and nothing works
my friend and I assume the update just broke something and now people with low ram get this problem
