Does anyone know anything pertaining to Team Fortress Classic: Source? I heard from ign.com that Valve was going to do it, but I don't know if I can wait that long. Does anyone know of any third party/shareware/freeware options? The only reason I haven't been playing as much is because I've gotten hooked on Source, so I can't really get back into my old stride. Any help would be appreciated.

I am almost certain that there won't be a TFC: Source.

Valve is hard at work at TF2, though.

On another note, you can check out the mod Fortress Forever at http://fortress-forever.com/

It looks like it's going to be pretty awesome. A sort of TFC: Source with minor changes to make the game better.

that's HL2 Capture the Flag, I think it replaced TFC: Source.

With the 1.2 patch, it fuckin sucks. 1.1 felt like TFC speed wise, but not anymore.

well, originally, they were planning on porting all the HL1 mods (well, the valve ones atleast) to Source. All of them from CS to DoD to TFC to Ricochet to whatever i'm forgetting. but that hasn't happened (yet? or ever?) and i don't know if they still plan on doing it or not.

there's an old interview here where Gabe says he plans on porting them.
and there's a shorter, better article here, where they have Gabe promising that the stuff would be ported.

will it ever be released? i dunno. i know TF2 is higher on the priority to Valve than the other mods, but we've atleast got them quoted as saying they'll do it.

fortress forever looks really good and i've got high expectations for it. it's not out yet tho, and i don't think it'll be ready till the beginning of summer or so? anyone know for sure?

TF2 = Vaporware

TFC Source = Vaporware

HL2 CTF= HL2DM with flags

FF, if it ever comes out, is just reinventing the wheel with shiney, purty graphics...ohh ahh.

Face it, Valve doesnt give a rats1 or 2 or rats_ctf's ass about the Team Fort community. They're all about HL2 and CS Source because that's where the $$$ iz kidz.

They've lied to and abandoned us.
Gabba The Hutt can take his Steamy pile and go intercourse himself.

And he probably will when players get bored throwing toilets at eachother and move on.

In the meanwhile, those of you who miss the old school and hate Steam can go here-
