Update: Nine-Pipe Problem & HUD_Fastswitch...
Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 09.03.2012 Time 12:03

"Horrido!" or "Excellent!" is what the medic probably said once he heard about his new item - Nine-Pipe Problem. This is yet another misc item which consists of a pair of shaded glasses replacing the standard clear glasses and a pipe including a smoke effect.

      • Effect: Genteel Pipe Smoke

      The Nine-Pipe Problem is a community-created miscellaneous item for the Medic. It is an old-fashioned smoking pipe, that sways, complete with a "Genteel Pipe Smoke" particle effect, and dark glasses that replaces the Medic's usual clear glasses.

      The Nine-Pipe Problem was contributed to the game via the Steam Workshop, under the name "The Baskerville Case".

A very old console command, hud_fastswitch, which has been around forever in almost all VALVE titles, but remained unknown to the common player, has been added to the "Advanced Options" menu. This command will make you switch weapons faster. If hud_fastswitch is set to 0, all weapon switches ingame have to be confirmed by the primary attack button. This takes valuable time, so we recommend to set it to 1 using hud_fastswitch 1 in the console or changing the new setting in the options menu. 

Next to some minor corrections for bugs causing client crashes, Valve updatet the  Spirit of Giving and added the possibility to brand the item with your name.
