New in 1.3

28 July 2012

So, you know that annoying crash where you would launch the app and it would crash straight away, and it would keep doing it for the next fifteen times or so you launched the app? Where it would then start crashing the next time TF2 was updated?

Well, sorry about that, but I’ve finally found it and fixed it. Or so I think. If you’re still seeing crashes, email me, but I’m pretty confident I fixed that bug.

Also updated included item definitions and images.
