I am currently updating my own client to SteamPipe version and updating the plugin as I go - this will be completed ASAP.

Users who have not opted to upgrade to SteamPipe yet will not be affected and the existing installer will still function as expected.

SteamPipe compatible version of the installer is up here: http://www.ukcs.net/plugins/TF2_UKCS_GUI_SteamPipe_Setup.exe. Do not attempt to use if you have not opted into the SteamPipe Beta!

When we convert to SteamPipe fully on UKCS we will migrate that to the generic link so that everyone is on the same version. We are hoping that the changes with SteamPipe there will be no need to reinstall after updates as the files affected will no longer be clobbered. Another nice alteration is that there is no need to enter a Steam account name as all extra content is centralised in the ./common/Team Fortress 2/tf/custom folder now.

Please let us know of any problems ASAP so we can resolve them. Cheers!

Try verifying the game in case it downloads missing stuff?
No. I am not a nice man. It's important that you understand that. It's going to save you a great deal of time and effort. There is not a warmer, kinder me waiting to be coaxed out into the light. I am acerbic. I can be cruel. It's who I am. Right to the bottom. I'm neither proud of this, nor ashamed of it. It simply is. And in my work, my nature has been an advantage far more often than it has been a hindrance. I'm not gonna change.

Try going to C:\Steam\Steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\custom and deleting EVERYTHING in the folder. This will only remove custom content and not affect your vanilla game at all. If it's still happening then it's nothing to do with the UKCS GUI as it only installs to "C:\Steam\Steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\custom\UKCS Connect Plugin". It's possible another piece of custom content has a broken main menu that is conflicting.

If you have a custom hud installed it can be that you need to rename or copy a file of the custom hud so you get the ukcs connect gui. I had that with the EVE hud and the connect plugin. Will have a look at it tonight when im home again.

It sounds like you overwrote core game files - did you move your old install of the plugin to the new directories?

Please help, I have steam installed on my G: drive/partition and TF2 on my C: drive.

UKCS plugin is here: "C:\Games\steam\team fortress 2\tf\custom\UKCS Connect Plugin", I have full permissions to c:\Games and all sub directories

My TF2 is on SSD whilst Steam is on a disk drive.

My in game menu is the default. No UKCS menu is shown.

Installing the GUI made no difference at all.

Here is a version of the UKCS GUI with a button for server #9 while the Halloween events are running

Enhanced

Classic

Install the GUI as normal and then unzip the matching archive into your ...SteamApps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\custom\UKCS Connect Plugin\ folder, overwriting old files.

Great work with the plugin so far. Thanks to all who worked on this.

I just needed to point something out. I have noticed that the scoreboards are binded to the Minimal HUD option. i.e. 32 Scoreboards triggers cl_hud_minmode to 0 and 16 Scoreboards triggers cl_hud_minmode to 1. And to be frank, I am a big fan of the minimal HUD mode, always used it since I started playing TF2, as it gives a lot more space on the screen and it's much simpler.

My question, is there any way to separate Minimal HUD mode away from scoreboard ? :scratch: (Use 32 scoreboard with the minimal HUD mode on)
