Team Fortress 2, Episode 1 & 2, and Portal

* Added support for the Novint Falcon

* Fixed a bug where a spectator’s wearable items could be seen floating around the player they were spectating
* Fixed a bug where a fake Spy hand would appear on the screen of other players
* Custom death animations now only play 25% of the time
* Fixed teleporters not being build-able in some places where they should be (such as within the pit at the end of Badwater Basin)
* Fixed rare client crash on connection and level change
* Removed refract from water ripples caused by bullet impacts for performance reasons
* Added log entries for player extinguished events using the medigun, jarate, flamethrower and dispenser
* Started tracking localization settings to help make decisions regarding localization in the future
* Fixed the blank progress bar in the upper-left of the screen when the client scheme is reloaded

Mapmaker requests

* Added spawn flag to func_respawnroomvisualizer that allows it be non-solid to players
* Added SetSolid input to func_respawnroomvisualizer to change solidity to players dynamically
* Added OnWonByTeam1 and OnWonByTeam2 outputs to the TFGamerulesProxy


* Fixed a bad detection case in the “Friendship is Golden” achievement
* Changed the description of the “Triple Prey” achievement so it better describes how to get it
* Critical arrows now have a trail and correctly deal enhanced damage
* The Huntsman now defaults to be right handed
* Friendly arrows will no longer trigger the near miss sound on you
* Fixed several sources of floating arrows


* Fixed disguised Spies occasionally looking like they have invulnerability, instead of the correct fake Spy mask
* Disguised spies will no longer lose their disguise weapon when they interact with a weapon locker
* Fixed a bug where the spy’s watch would randomly change models during play
* Fixed uncloaked spies flickering in and out of the cloak effect when taking damage
* The Cloak and Dagger now always regenerates at its intended rate. Previously it only regenerated at the correct rate when the spy was cloaked
* Increased the Cloak and Dagger regeneration rate slightly
* Capped the rate of energy loss from moving faster than run speed (falling / air toss) while cloaked with the Cloak and Dagger
* The Dead Ringer’s cloak consume rate has been slightly reduced, giving about an extra second of cloak time on a full meter

* The Dead Ringer’s cloak meter can now be regenerated from ammo sources

* The Spy can no longer change weapons from the knife while shocked by the Razorback
