TF2 Scripting Tutorial

Welcome to my scripting guide!
You may learn here basics of scripting in TF2.

For editing CFG files I recommend using Notepad + +.

All things mentioned here should be saved in your user config.
How you can make your own config? Where it should be placed?

Your TF2 cfg folder where you put all your configs should be located in:
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\%accountame%\team fortress 2\tf\cfg
C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\steamapps\%accountame%\team fortress 2\tf\cfg
Where %accountname% is your Steam login.

To save your config as a cfg file when you are saving file pick from file type dropdown All files (*.*), but when you are using this method you need to type file name and extension. For exapmle myconfig.cfg

Now open autoexec.cfg
and add a line
exec configname
where configname is name of config that you have chosen recently.

In your CFG folder you can find configs with class names in titles, they are executed every time you select that class.

Note:If you cant see file extension in file name please follow this guide.

Numpad key names
"KP_MINUS" Minus
"KP_PLUS" Plus
"KP_Enter" Enter
"KP_DEL" ,
"KP_INS" 0
"KP_END" 1
"KP_5" 5


Binding is basically assigning commands to keys
bind "key" "command"

If you want to assign multiple commands divide them by ;
bind "key" "command; command; command"

Example №1: You want to bind reload to a specified key:
bind "key" "+reload"

Example №2: You want to bind taunt and explode commands to same key
bind "key" "taunt; wait 30; explode"

That command allows you cycle between specified values on chosen range.
bind "key" "incrementvar command 1 12 3
(where 1 and 12 is range and 3 is jump between values)

Example №1: You want to change sensitivity from one to twenty with 2 points jump.
bind "key" "incrementvar sensitivity 1 20 2"

Example №2: You want to switch between 3 basic net_graph positions with one click.

bind "key" "incrementvar net_graphpos 1 3 1"

Alias command allows you to shorten very long commands into one short alias.
alias nameofyourscript "firstalias"
alias firstalias "command; command; alias nameofyourscript secondalias"
alias secondalias "command; command; alias nameofyourscript thirdalias"
alias thirdalias "command; alias nameofyourscript firstalias" //last alias should point to first one

Note: you can use as many aliases as you want, same with commands.

Example №1: Lets say that we want a name changing script.
alias namescr "firstname"
alias firstname "setinfo name "First_name"; alias namescr secondname"
alias secondname "setinfo name "Second_name"; alias namescr thirdname"
alias thirdname "setinfo name "Third-name"; alias namescr firstname"

bind "key" namescr

Note: That script does not allow spaces in names, if you want space in your nick look below.

Example №2: Duck script. Second example will be a duck script that will allow you to duck without holding a key.
alias duck "duckON"
alias duckON "+duck; alias duck duckOFF"
alias duckOFF "-duck; alias duck duckON"
bind "key" "duck"

Example №3: You and your friend are playing at same PC, both of you have different keybindings. There is a easy solution for this!
alias configsw "yourconfig"
alias yourconfig "exec yourconfig; developer 1; echo Yourconfig.cfg; wait 250; developer 0; alias configsw friendconfig"
alias friendconfig "exec friendconfig; developer 1; echo Friendconfig.cfg; wait 250; developer 0; alias configsw yourconfig"
bind "key" "configsw"

This should be used if you want to switch names in game and your names have spaces.

+ and - commands
Plus and Minus commands are commands that have 2 states.
Plus part is executed when you press a key and it's execute until key is released. When key is released it goes into minus state.
bind "mouse1" "+attack"

You aren't limited to commands that developers created. You can create your own using alias command.
alias +minigun "+duck; +attack"
alias -minigun "-attack; -duck"
bind "key" "+minigun"

As you probably noticed, there is no need to bind minus command, it's executed automatically after you stop holding key that you bound it to.

Useful scripting commands:
"wait" Stop command parsing until next frame.(if you put a value ex: wait 30 it will wait 30 frames)
"exec" Executes user config
"bind" Binds command to key (bind "F1" "kill")
"unbind" Unbinds command (unbind "F1")
